Today is the start of the Kraftin' Kimmie August release sneak peeks. As one of those who purchased the August Krafty Kit, I get to play along with the first of the new sets. Scaredy Cats is a fabulous new set from artist Neda Sadreddin accompanied by one of the new stencils, Bats & Moons, and the new ink, Goblin Green
I coloured one of the images from Scaredy Cats with Zig Clean Colour markers, embossed with the Bat & Moons stencils, and used glow-in the-dark to emboss the sentiment and add a fun detail to the kitty eyes. Turn off the lights for a too cute to spook pair of kitties.
Putting It Together
The August Krafty Kit came with the Scaredy Cats stamp set, Bats & Moons stencil, Goblin Green ink, and Spooky Dots. I used everything but the dots on my card.
Scaredy Cats has three adorable images by Neda Sadreddin and three fun sentiments.
I stamped the kitties on the fence with Marvelous Mocha then coloured them with Zig Clean Colour markers. I used Nuvo Crystal Drops for the nails on the fence and Nuvo Glow Drops for their eyes.
After the eyes dried, I fussy cut the image and used a black gel pen to darker the irises.
To emboss with the stencil, I used a special sandwich with my Big Shot Plus. I used the Spellbinders tan silicon pad and 110 lb cardstock with two Sizzix cut plates, the Plus standard platform, and adapter A. If I was using the Big Shot with the the two tabs, I would open up to tab 1 and add a bit of extra shimming with the same sandwich.
I left the embossing black on black for a spooky background.
I double embossed the sentiment on a fussy cut black strip. I started with a base of white embossing then added two layers of the glow-in-the-dark. The Glow embossing would otherwise not show up on the black. I added everything to a kraft card base using foam mounting tape to pop up the sentiment strip and the kitties on the fence.
Inside, I used Pumpkin Patch (August's colour of the month) and Wicked Black to stamp the sentiment n a white panel. I also used Wicked black to add one of the other images from the set and Pumpkin Patch to colour the pumpkin with Wicked Black for the kitty. I added Glow Drops to the pumpkin cutouts. I then edged the panel with the new Goblin Green to finish it off.
The pumpkin on the inside does, too.
The new release will be available on Saturday, 17 August. I used the Scaredy Cats stamp set, Goblin Green ink, and Moon & Bats stencil to which I added Wicked Black, Marvelous Mocha, and Pumpkin Patch.
