Pink Cat Studio Digi Stamps Release

Hi Friends! Hey. . .my new computer is up and running! Yay! I've had my old computer for over 4 years and it's been flaking out on me so my husband bought me a new computer. He's been trying to get me to "let go" of my old computer but ugggh, I really didn't have a problem with it up until recently. I finally gave in. Now that I did, I'm real happy with my new computer.

I spent the greater part of my day uploading programs on to my computer. Unfortunately, because I'm now on Window 7, some of my drivers will not upload and programs don't work properly. Ugggh! To make matters worse, I had forgotten to transfer some of my most current files to my data drive so they are now sitting in my old computer including my tutorial for yesterday's project. Now, I have to recreate the tutorial. I was so frustrated yesterday that I went to bed at 9:00 last night because I was so annoyed, I just didn't want to stay up anymore! LOL! Okay. . ..I'm in a good place now. . . it's a new day. . .:)

It's a new day and guess what! A new day comes with "good news"! Yup!!! Today is Pink Cat Studio's release day of their digi images! How fun! There's a whole bunch of new images and not limited to the ones shown above. Be sure to stop by and check out all the new digi images!!!

I decided to create a scenery for my first card. To create the snow mountain in the background, all I did was tear 2 white card stock at an angle, run it through a CB embossing folder, sponged distressing ink to the edge of the card stock and layered them over one another. That's about it!

I colored my image, as always, with my Copic Markers, punched out snowflakes and added a bit of stickles to the snowflakes.

Card Details: Pink Cat Studio Friendly Snowman and free digi sentiments
Paper: DCWV designer paper, SU Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue (I think)
Ink: Copic Markers, Tim Holtz distressing ink
Accessories: SU Key Tag Punch, Marvy Snowflake punch, Stickles, CB Embossing Folder, Organdy Ribbon

This second card was a quickie card actually. Nothing really much to it. I colored the image with my Copic Markers. This image is called "Santa". I love this image. It has a vintage look to it, huh? To create the puffy glitter look to the cap and Santa outfit, I used Scribbles Glitter Paint. When it dries, it has a 3D appearance with a bit of glitter.

Card Details:

Stamps: Pink Cat Studio Santa and free digi images
Paper: Basic Grey designer paepr, SU Real Red, Creamy Caramel, Wild Wasabi
Ink: Copic Markers, Tim Holtz Distressing ink, Scribbles Glitter Paint
Accessories: Sizzix Scallop Tag die, CB Embossing Folder, Borderbilities, Nestabilities, Basic Basic Ribbon, JoAnns Brads

My last project is a paper bag gift bag. I didn't create a tutorial for it because it's very simple. All I did was cut off the top of a paper bag, measured the height and width of my paper bag and cut 2 card stock based on my measurement. I punched the SU Key Tag Punch to create the handle and sandwiched the paper bag between the two card stock. That's it. Try it out. It's a fast and easy way to create a gift bag!

To create the puffed up look on the snow cap, I used Liquid Applique. So fun!

Project Details:

Stamps: Pink Cat Studio Kissing Penquins
Paper: SU DSP, SU Baja Breeze, Real Red
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: CB Embossing Folder, Nestabilities, Borderbilities, Organdy Ribbon, Basic Basic Ribbon, SU Key Tag Punch, Liquid Applique
