Cute Card Layout with Mystery Stamping Hour!

Hi Friends! Yesterday I hosted another "Mystery Stamping Hour" and it was so much FUN, as it always is! Anyone can join in and stamp with me via my Mystery Stamping Hour by clicking on this link. We stamp together at least once a month, sometimes more. Yesterday's card layout was a hit and it's super cute.

I used the 2020-2022 In Colour collection, but can you imagine this layout as a Christmas card in blues? Or even red or greens? I am going to have to try this! My mind just swirls with ideas after I make a card with a layout like this!

  • For this card I used the "Grace's Garden" stamp set and die cut the kitty. I used the 2020-2022 In Colour Markers to colour the images. 

  • To colour the kitty, I scribbled a bit of the Cinnamon Marker on a clear block and picked up the ink with my aqua painter. This gave me the soft shade on the cat. Also, the butterfly snuck in there from the "Special Someone" stamp set.

  • The Designer Series Paper is cut at 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" and layered on a piece of Whisper White card stock that measures 3 1/4" x 3 1/4".
  • The DSP strip on the card front is 2"x 5 1/4"

I made a second card using the same layout, but with the "Special Someone" stamp set and I also tweaked the measurements a bit. 

  • The squares on this card are cut a bit smaller, using 1 3/8" x 1 3/8" for my DSP and 3" x 3" for the Whisper White card stock layer.

I hope this card layout inspires you to give it go with your papers, inks and stamps! Have fun!

  1. I adore your design ... what a fun way to use up small blocks of dsp! I made two RAK cards utilizing your card design and it was so much fun! I'll be using this design a lot in the future, I'm sure! Thanks for all the inspiration!
