Hi, there! Sorry for being so inactive lately. 😔 As you all know, I struggled a bit the last couple of weeks so I took a break from card making and focussed on myself. Thankfully, I’m doing much better now. My mojo has returned and I’m having lots of fun again in my craft room. Sadly enough, I still don’t have a full-time job as a kindergarten teacher. However, I did replace a couple of sick teachers in the school where I did my internships during my studies. It was so much fun to reunite with the colleagues and kids. 💛 Let’s hope I can teach there full-time one day.
Back to card making now! Last week I ordered the Oh Kitty Tree set from Mama Elephant. In my opinion, this is the perfect stamp set for any cat lover! 😺 But it’s also a great stamp set for those who want to practice their coloring. In my video, I’m sharing some tips and tricks including how to fix ‘mistakes’.

I started out by stamping the large image from the Oh Kitty Tree stamp set from Mama Elephant on white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I used Copic Sketch Markers to color all of these cats. I added stripes and spots with the darkest marker of each shade to make every cat unique. Aren’t they adorable? My favorite cat is the one on the bottom right wearing the scarf.
After die cutting the image, I wanted to switch up my color scheme a little bit. So I fixed the turquoise and some of the yellow. I simply colored on top of those colors with red and green markers. Make sure to take a color that’s darker than the original shade so nobody will ever notice!
Next, I created a gradient background with Festive Berries, Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry. These colors work beautifully together and create a nice blend. ❤️ I also heat embossed a sentiment from the Oh Kitty Tree set with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow. Finally, I added sparkle with a Clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir, a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze and a few Tonic Nuvo Drops here and there. ✨
That’s it for now! Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll be back soon. Sending big crafty hugs to all of you. Xo 💕
