Big Creative Blog Hop Finale - Stampendous, Dreamweaver and Core'dinations!

Dreamweaver pan pastels distress inks bunting pennants vintage background

Hello everyone! A very special welcome to my newest followers (thank you for joining in!) and also a big thank you for your sweet comments on the last post with my Fall Zinnia card with jigsaw puzzle background.

I hope you are enjoying this week's blog team up of the three fantastic companies Stampendous, Dreamweaver and Core'dinations

Today we have a big blog finale but if you have missed the fun earlier this week, be sure to check out these posts:

During this week's long blog collaboration we've been inspiring (and tempting!) you with some of the most essential crafting products - cardstock, stencils and stamps of course. I'm sure you'll agree that no respectable crafty tool box should be be left without them! :)

Now, we couldn't just tempt you with these awesome products without offering a little giveaway prize, could we? Nah, that would be unkind! So of course we have one. In fact, we actually have three! Here's what you might win:

For a chance to win simply leave some love on the participating blogs throughout the week. The more comments you leave, the bigger your chance of winning. 

Here's my offering for today. When I saw this Splats stencil, I immediately thought of the little mess/devastation that my cat Kropek recently made at home (I shall spare you the full details! lol). 

Bonjour Kitty stampendous splatter background fall vintage card by Asia King

Before I knew it I was looking through my collection of feline stamps and I found this adorable Bonjour KittyOh là là! The French look with a little beret and a scarf reminded me of street artists on Parisian's Montmartre. One thing led to another and I ended up with a messy feline artist keen to colour outside the lines :-) lol.

Key supplies used:

Dreamweaver: Splats stencil

Adhesives: 3D Foam Pennants, 3D Foam Squares - White, Dodz™ -3D,
E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips

Papers: 7Dots Studio Dreamer, Ribbon: May Arts 

How to make this card:
1. Prepare your kraft card blank
2. Cut a panel from patterned paper, slightly smaller than the card blank. 
3. Ink and distress the edges. Make a small tear along the bottom right edge. 
4. Tuck in a small piece of sanded Paprika card under the tear. Adhere the whole panel to the card.
5. Emboss a small piece of Paprika card the the brick folder and sand the raised edges. Use it to create a small banner from 3D Foam Pennants and an additional background panel. 
6. Ink the Kitty stamp with PITT pens and stamp onto white card. Colour the image in with Inktense pencils. Stamp the image again on a Post-It note and fussy cut (to create a mask).

7. For the background, mask the Kitty and sponge PanPastels and Distress Inks through the Splatter stencil.
8. Stamp the Wired circle off the edges and around the Kitty. 
9. Add shading with chalks and pencils. Add small splatters with watered down black watercolour paint.
10. Trim the stamped panel to size, distress the edges with ink and seal the image with hair spray. 
11. Dab some Boss Gloss in bottom right corner, sprinkle with Aged Scarlet and heat emboss.
12. Mat the image with Coconut Cream and French Roast card. Adhere to the card base.
13. Ink the sentiment with PITT pens and stamp onto patterned paper. Sponge splatters through the stencil and heat emboss with Aged Scarlet (as in step 11). Trim to size and mat with French Roast card. Adhere with 3d Foam Squares.
14. Make a ribbon bow and adhere to the card with DODZ - 3D.
15. Finish the card with the banner and gems.
