Two Simple Cards With Modern Cats Die Set

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi friends, Svitlana is here today. Matching dies are great product to a get a perfect die-cut of a stamped image. But sometimes they can be used on their own, without corresponding stamps. Today I want to share two simple cards made using Modern Cats Die Set.

For my first card I used a die of sitting cat which I use to make a negative die-cut in a Solar White Cardstock panel.

Next I stamped a sentiment from Modern Cats Stamp Set using Dark Chocolate Dye Ink onto the panel. I cut and scored and A2 card base out of Parchment Cardstock and foam mounted the panel onto it. I stamped a heart from Halftone Hearts Stamp Set inside the negative die-cut using Ruby Red Dye Ink. To finish off the card I then added several clear droplets.

The second card is a bit more complicated but is more fun. First of all I made a negative mask of playing kitty out of freezer paper and adhered it onto a watercolor panel using my iron. I then created a basic galaxy watercolor background inside of the negative mask. Also adding a little white spray (because each galaxy needs stars).

Then I drew a “cat constellation” using clear embossing marker. I then white embossed it using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. I stamped a sentiment from  Modern Cats Stamp Set using Desert Night Dye Ink and foam mounted the panel onto a white card base.

Here you have two ideas of how you can stretch those matching dies. I especially like the second card. This technique for would work for other animal designs or maybe even flowers.

Have a wonderful day!

These cards are both just wonderful! The first one is so sweet and simple, and your galaxy and constellation on the second card are beautiful. So clever to use the negative die cuts!

That galaxy cat is AMAZEBALLS! I never would’ve thought to use freezer paper as a mask… thanks for the fab inspiration!
