Year of the Rat - TCP Sneaky Peek

Hi crafty friends! I'm so excited to share a sneaky peek of the new Year of the Rat stamp and die set from this month's new release over at The Cat's Pajamas!

I had so much fun making this card with this new bundle!  To make my card, I first stamped the adorable mouse on the cloud and bird onto the center of my white card base and also stamped on the fluttering butterfly onto my white card base.  Next, I cut out masks of the mouse and bird and butterfly using the coordinating die set to cover my stamped images.

Then I blended distress oxide inks (broken china and chipped sapphire) around my stamped images, and splattered the inkblended card base with water and blue acrylic paint.  Next, I removed my masks and colored my stamped images with copic markers.  To finish off my card, I heat embossed the Hello sentiment from this stamp set with versamark ink and white embossing powder on dark blue cardstock, and cut out a flag with the sentiment, and adhered it to the bottom left corner of my card base with foam tape

Here's another look at my card:

The Year of the Rat stamp set and coordinating die (and bundle!) are now available over at The Cat's Pajamas!
