My card features the new Charmed Cat Two. I love the sentiments in this set! I paired the paws and sentiment with a cat from Feline Friends and a new die cut called Paw Prints!

Paper Smooches: Sugar Rush

Summer stamping is so fun! I mixed together a few sets for this fun card. 

I started by stamping and die cutting the cat from Nine Lives and colored him with Copics. The popsicle was stamped and die cut from Sugar Rush. To create the two toned color I masked the edges and the angle with post it tape and then blended in ink. The background was a also blended with a few masks and ink to create the beach scene. The hill was die cut with Stitched Dies and adds more dimension and fun to the card. I finished it with a few embellishments, a sentiment and paper from Crate Paper's Poolside collection.
