My card today is a whimsical one using the adorable The Craft's Meow Fruity for You stamp set along with some fun fruity patterned/glittered paper from Die Cuts with a View Sweet mat stack. To add a bit of sparkle and glitter to the pear and sentiment tag, after stamping and die cutting / trimming, I pressed them into my Versamark ink pad and embossed with Stampin Up's Irridescent Ice embossing powder. (I'm not sure if they sell it anymore but it's a clear embossing powder with some glitter added to it.) Once it was heat set, they matched the patterned glitter paper really well. My photo doesn't do it justice - the glitter embossing is really pretty!
The Craft's Meow will be celebrating in just a few days - it's our first birthday this month! Lisa has begun sharing the peeks of the new stamps that will be released soon and today, she announced the new designers joining our team as well! Previews and the big birthday bash will be starting up in just a few days - I can't wait!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
