Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peek Day 2

Hi Everyone!! It's day 2 of Pink Cat Studio sneak peeks!!! With this Valentines card, I used the "Lily & Billy Sweethearts" stamp set. The stamp set will be released on January 15th so be sure to stop by Pink Cat Studio to check it out

I used the negative side of my Sizzix die to create the heart windows. If you have the die, the placement of the hearts are exactly as shown on my card. You can create heart windows if you you use the negative side of the die cut.

The designer paper, believe it or not, is actually not a designer paper. It's the cardboard backing of a scrapbook kit package! LOL! Hey, if you're like me. . .I'll use anything that looks good. LOL!!! Why waste such a nice design?

I colored Lily & Billy with my Copic Markers. . .as always. I think I'm going to start switching color mediums to my Prismacolor Pencils with Gamsol. My Prismacolor pencils are so neglected right now. I haven't used them for months.

Card Details:

Stamps: Pink Cat Studio "Lily & Billy Sweethearts"
Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Sizzix Heart Die, Fiskar "Cloud" Scissors", SU Rose Red Grosgrain Ribbon

This card is a sneak peek of the second stamp set to be released by Pink Cat Studio "Kiki Kitty".

I just loved the designer paper because it has paws and I thought it fit so nicely with the Kiki image. Isn't Kiki so cute and the paper too?

Again, I colored the image with my Copic Markers, I cut Kiki out and remounted her with foam type to give her a 3D look.

Hope y'all have a fabulous day!!!

Card Details:

Stamps: Kiki Kitty
Paper: DCWV Pet Stack, SU Not Quite Navy (I think), More Mustard
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Fiskar scissors, Grosgrain ribbon, hemp cord, Prima flowers, JoAnn brads

Anyway, check out the other awesome cards by the other design team gals:
