Hi everyone, it’s Lisa here, just stopping by with one final card to close out the month of May.   This year is just flying by isn’t it?

For my sweet little card today I used three stamp sets and two background stamps:

I started out by embossing the Mini Heart Print Cling Background using Hampton White Pigment ink and  Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder for a nice tone on tone background.  I also stamped the Minor Stripes Cling Background using Orchid Crush Couture Color dye ink to add to the front of the card base.   For a little bit of sparkle I cut a thin strip of The Ton’s Silver Glitter Adhesive Paper in between these two patterns.  I love that paper, it’s so easy to use, no glue needed!

After putting together the card front I  started stamping and die cutting the beautiful Pragmatic Wreaths stamp set and the following ink colors:

This is the first time I really had the chance to play with the Pragmatic Wreaths Coordinating Dies and I had so much fun!  So many great little pieces, the design possiblities are endless!   I used the thin wreath section to cut out a circle out of white cardstock and that is what I used for stamping that cute little cat from the Purrincess stamp set.  I stamped her in The Ton’s Copic friendly Caviar Hybrid ink and  I colored her with Copic markers.  See the little shadow around the edge to make her pop off the paper?  Next I heat embossed some hanging jewels from the Sentiment Jewelry stamp set using clear Versamark ink and  Ranger Super-Fine Silver embossing powder.  I used the same silver on the sentiment banner.

After gluing the  kitty circle down, I added dimensional tape onto the back of the wreath to give it a little lift and fit it around the circle.  And of course we needed more bling so I tucked in some sequins from the Raspberry Sparkle Couture Mix.
