Pot O' Sprinkle

I've had this card idea in my head for a while now, but I've just never had a chance to sit down and make it. This pot o' sprinkle just cracks me up. It looks like something my cat would do - she's always getting into things. She has recently started hopping onto my stamp desk, grabbing the first thing with ribbon she sees in her teeth and carting her "treasure" off. It's pretty cute!

I started this card off by stamping Pot O' Sprinkle from the Cat's Pajamas in Black Stazon on Whisper White. I then colored with my Sakura Glaze pens (love these!) and my Sakura Clear Stardust pen (for Sprinkle's Hat and the shadow on the pot of gold). I then cut the image out with my Creative Memories Circle Cutting System, dotted around the edges with my black Glaze pen and matted on a Mega and then a Giga Scalloped punch. I pierced holes in the Basic Black scalloped circle and outlined with my startdust gel pen.

The background paper is all from the Green Day line of Reminisce papers. (I'm giving some of these papers away in my blog candy giveaway.) I cut two strips of designer paper together and then alternated panels on a Basic Black card base. I then laid down some black grosgrain ribbon across the center, punched holes in each end with my 1/16" circle punch and secured with Making Memories jewel brads. I then tied to knots of black organdy around each end of the grosgrain and trimmed the edges.

The You're in Luck sentiment is stamped in Black Stazon on Whisper White and is actually glued with pop dots to the inside of the card. I punched through the entire card front with the word window punch two times overlapping to make a bigger window and then dotted with my black Glaze pen. The final touches were 1/2 circle punches using the 3/4" and 1" circle punches and then highlighted with glaze and stardust pens.

    Taz does the same thing with anything that resembles ribbon or flowers. We call it "Dragging it off to her lair".... The stuff I find under the bed is just scary....
