Hi friends!

I’m over at Altenew blog today sharing two simple cards for cat lovers.

Matching dies are great product to a get a perfect die-cut of a stamped image. But sometimes they can be used on their own, without corresponding stamps. Today I want to share two simple cards made using Modern Cats Die Set.

NEGATIVE DIE CUT

For my first card I used a die of sitting cat which I use to make a negative die-cut in a Solar White Cardstock panel.

Next I stamped a sentiment from Modern Cats Stamp Set using Dark Chocolate Dye Ink onto the panel. I cut and scored and A2 card base out of Parchment Cardstock and foam mounted the panel onto it. I stamped a heart from Halftone Hearts Stamp Set inside the negative die-cut using Ruby Red Dye Ink and added several clear droplets to finish off the card.

CAT CONSTELLATION

The second card is a bit more complicated but is more fun. First I made a negative mask of playing kitty out of freezer paper and adhered it onto a watercolor panel using my iron. I then created a basic galaxy watercolor background inside of the negative mask, followed by spraying it with white spray (because each galaxy needs stars).

Then I drew a “cat constellation” using Versamarker and white embossed it using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. I stamped a sentiment from  Modern Cats Stamp Set using Desert Night Dye Ink and foam mounted the panel onto a white card base.

Here you have two ideas of how you can stretch those matching dies. I especially like the second card. Want to try this technique for other animal designs or maybe even flowers.

Have a wonderful day!
