SAS Sample #2

When I do an event with several cards, I usually try to vary the style (vintage, cutesy, classic, etc.) and the color palettes (neutrals, brights, primary, pastels, etc.). The card below has a very different look and feel from the one in the previous post!

Since it was an event where everyone did 4 of each card, I kept the coloring minimal. Instead of coloring the entire cat, I just used the gray Tombow to outline him (her?). Of course, I had to add Stickles too!

Because of the two eyelets so close to the edge, it would have been difficult to adhere the front panel flat. Solution? Pop dots for the entire card front!

The stamp sets are Cupcake Cuties, Running Stitches and Circle Sampler (sentiments inside varied). The paper was Miss Moxie SWIC and Cardstock, and white ultrasmooth. Inks are Palettes in Noir, and L'Amore Red. I also used a button from Elizabeth Blossoms and Blooms, Pop Dots, Clever Lever Circle Punch, Toodle Loo eyelets, Stickles, and WaterColor Pencils with a Dove Blender.
ETA: Today is 2/7/11 and I'm adding this card to a blog hop for The Angel Company. Be sure to check out the other samples of Cupcake Cuties!
