MKC Guest Designer

Surprise everybody!!! I am guest designer for today on Miss Kate Cuttables. I was so happy when I discovered her site a few years back. I check back everyday to see what the new Freebie file is and I use her cuts a lot in my cards. When I found out that I was being offered a guest spot on her site, I was SUPER excited. I love doing all kinds of crafts and especially cardmaking. I make a lot of Birthday and Christmas cards every year. For today, I decided to showcase some Christmas cards I made using these 2 files from Miss Kate Cuttables. (Santa Paws and Frosty Fun).

For the first card I used the files which can be found here (http://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/santa-paws-cat.php#).

I cut out the images using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space. Then used my Xyron to assemble the pieces easier. After assembling the items, I used Clear Wink of Stella on “Santa”, the holly and the bow. On the leaves, I used Wink of Stella – Green 040.

For the face on the cat, I used Peachy Keen Stamps – PK110 Here Kitty Kitty Face Assortment. Used StazOn – Jet Black ink and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Brightened up the eyes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Adding a touch of pink, green and red markers to accentuate the eyes and mouth.

Patterned paper is from Bo Bunny –  Silver and Gold Collection Paper – 6 x 6 in pad.

Square stitched backgrounds is cut out using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Went around paper background edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo.

For my next card, I used the files from “Frosty Fun” which can be found here (http://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/frosty-fun.php#)
