Hello it`s Alli here today and I hope you are going to have a lovely long crafty bank holiday weekend. I`ve made this card using a topper from the cutest set of images I`ve ever seen and I`m keen to get to work making things with the rest of the set. For those of you who don`t like cats there is a set of puppies which are equally cute.
what you will need:
LC Designs Irresistible Images Cuddly Kittens
LC Designs Wavy Cats - sentiment stamp
LC Designs 6" x 6" Paper Pack Masculine Dots - pale green/blue
6" x 6" white base card
Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique paper pad - blue/green with tea cups
Nit Wit Collection Country Meadow 8" x 8" paper pad - pink gingham
Marianne Design LR0271 large flourish die
7mm yellow satin ribbon
2 x pink & 1 x yellow medium size mulberry roses
1 x yellow small size mulberry rose
small heart punch
large hole punch
scrap of white card to stamp onto
black Versa Fine ink pad
pale pink felt pen
Cut the Dovecraft printed paper to 14cm square, mat and layer onto the pink card, stick to the centre of the 6" x 6" base card.
Cut the Nit Wit pink gingham paper to 12.7cm x 6.5cm and mat and layer onto the pink card.
Secure the yellow satin ribbon to the gingham and pink card topper, remember to secure the ribbon around the back to make a neat edge.
Stick the gingham and pink topper onto the base card.
Mat and layer the Irresistible Image of the three kittens in a tea cup onto the pink card and stick the topper onto the base card.
Using the "Have a Purrfect Birthday" stamp from the Wavy Cats stamp set and the black Versa Fine ink pad stamp the sentiment onto a scrap of white card.
Cut the sentiment to size and draw around the cut edges with the pale pink felt pen.
Stick the sentiment onto the gingham paper on the base card.
Using the Marianne Designs die and the LC Designs blue/green Masculine Dots paper make 1 x die cut from the front of the paper and 1 x die cut from the back of the paper (run the second die cut through the machine without the die to flatten down the cut edges.
Chop into the die cut flourishes to make the best design on your base card and stick into place.
Stick the 3 x medium roses onto the base card.
Make a bow from the satin ribbon and stick onto the base card.
Stick the small yellow rose to the centre of the bow.
Punch out 4 x small pink hearts and colour over the top with the pale pink felt tip pen to darken the pink slightly, stick the hearts onto the base card.
Punch out 2 x large dots from the pink gingham paper using the large hole punch.
Bevel the dots and stick onto the base card.

Morning All! It’s Lisa here with a quick reminder of our current monthly challenge and a closer look at my challenge project.
The theme of our current challenge is ‘Butterflies’ and you can find all the details on the challenge post, here on the blog. We would love to see your cards entered in the challenge and there's a fabulous prize on offer for the winner!
For my challenge project I’ve used Dinkies Spikey Flower stamp:
- Dinkies Spikey Flower Stamp
- 15cm Square Tent Fold White Card Blank
- White Stamping Card, Pale Blue Card and Lemon Card
- Alcohol Pens
- Butterfly Dies, Plain and Fancy Circle Dies
- Black Fine Line Pen
- Ribbon, Pearls, Pearl Flower and Pearl Bead String
- Cut a 13.5cm square piece of blue butterfly paper and then die cut a circle from the centre of the piece (the hole will be covered later).
- Mat the patterned paper square onto lemon, then pale blue card. Doodle a border around the patterned paper and fix to the card blank.
- Add a strip of yellow ribbon across the lower part of the card blank and the sentiment to the lower left.
- Stamp the flowers onto the left of the circle of patterned paper, stamp a second time to the right of the circle. Dot white acrylic paint onto the flowers and leave to dry.
- Colour the white dots with a yellow alcohol marker and add grass with a green alcohol marker. Add glitter glue and Glossy Accents to the flowers.
- Mat the circle onto a circle die cut from lemon card, then a fancy circle die cut from pale blue card and fix to the card blank using foam pads (this will hide the hole made in step 1).
- Die cut two butterflies from lemon card and fix to the right edge of the fancy circle.
- Decorate with a ribbon bow, a pearl flower and pearls to the butterfly bodies and corner of the cards.
I hope you like my project and are inspired to try something similar. My blog is www.craftingbelle.blogspot.com if you would like to see some more projects.

But now for something new...
I embossed the image using Versamark and red embossing powder.
I then used Distress Inks as watercolour to paint the robins...
I then cut them out with nesting dies. For the sentiments -
the first was the sentiment that came with the robin, the second I printed on the computer - and I edged these with a border die.
