This is the second card I have made using the Little Claire May club stamps and this stamp is called Silhouette Cat and Tree.
what you will need:
Little Claire May club stamp - cat & tree silhouette and "never, never, never give up" sentiment
6" x 6" base card
White card to stamp the image onto
blue pearl card
black sugar card
Versa Fine black ink pad
Versa Mark watermark stamp pad
Cut n Dry - to blend chalks
random swirls background stamp
ultra fine clear embossing powder
1.7cm wide blue ribbon
1cm wide lilac ribbon
small black square gems
Stick the blue pearl card onto the base card and cut to size.
Cut the black sugar card to mat and layer onto the blue card but do not stick it down.
Using the Versa Mark watermark ink pad randomly stamp the swirls over the black sugar paper to form a background pattern.
Dust the black card with the clear ultra fine embossing powder, shake off excess and heat emboss.
Cut the blue ribbon to the correct length and stick into place on the black card (I always like to take my ribbons round to the back of the card to secure them and make a neat edge).
Cut the lilac ribbon to the correct length and stick over the blue ribbon.
Stamp the silhouette image onto the white card using the black Versa Fine ink pad and leave to dry (I like to use stamping foam under my card when stamping large areas but you can try using a magazine if you do not have any stamping foam).
Using a piece of Cut n Dry rub some silver grey chalk onto the moon part of the image and then radiating out from this rub on light blues fading to dark blue at the edges and then go over the dark blue with a dark purple colour (I used a shimmer chalk for the moon and then when I had finished the colours I used the same bit of foam to go over the entire image and blend in all the colours and add a pearly moonlight shimmer).
Cut out the image and mat and layer onto a piece of blue pearl card.
Stick the image topper onto the base card.
Colour a piece of white card with the chalks to make a background for the sentiment.
Using the black Versa Fine ink pad stamp the "never, never, never, give up" sentiment (which comes in the stamp set) onto the blue background you have just made and leave o dry.
Cut the sentiment out and using foam pads stick in place (remember to not put the foam pads where the ribbon is or this will create a bump).
Stick the black square gems into place at the corners of the topper.
Make a bow using the lilac ribbon and stick into place.
Spray the entire card with the hair spray to set the colours.
