Sunday Stamps..

Welcome back to Sunday Stamps.. This week we are on the letter "Y". I heard from a lot of you that you didn't have any "X" sets so you couldn't participate last week. That's okay, remember to think outside of the box.. You can use the letter X or a sentiment with X in it. Like XOXO.

Post your creations with the letter "Y" in the Mr. Linky box below and I will post them next week along with my card. I haven't come across anything in my own stash yet for this letter..

Last week we were on the letter "X" and I choose the Stamp Xmas Hat from Penny Black, I love this little cat and he is super cute. I have to say I'm not entirely impressed with my card this week though. This is a hard stamp to work with and I didn't want to do the same thing I did before.


My card base is Riding Hood Red and I ran a piece of retired DSP through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot Texturz plate and then I ran a nail buffer over it to reveal the white core in the paper and make my polka dots white. Then I added some glue and Dazzling Diamonds to them.

My kitty is stamped on Watercolor paper and I cut each cat out separate so they weren't one long image like it is on the block. Then I used my aqua painter and inks to color him in. Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey & Riding Hood Red. I added dazzling Diamonds to his Hat as well.


I wanted my card to have a lot of Sparkle.. The pictures don't do it justice, but if you click the second photo you can see it a little better. I took a VeraMark Dazzle pad in Frost and I ran it across the edges of my card and I smooshed it onto the piece of white I stamped "Sparkle" onto before I punched it out with the Oval Punch. Then I layered it into a piece of Silver Hodgepodge Hardware and I added some White Satin Ribbon and a Clear Rhinestone brad.

My layout came from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long You were suppose to Highlight part of you image as well. I popped my center kitty up to make him stand out.
