My first card uses the comical Birthday Cat stamp.   I love him in all of his chubbiness!

To color, I cut out a reverse mask and then sponged him with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.
He was then fussy cut out.
The background was done by die cutting 2 background panels- one out of white
and one out of a piece of Yupo that was colored with alcohol inks.   I used
the inlaid die technique, replacing some of the white pieces with the alcohol ink
colored pieces.

I used other pieces of this Yupo for a completely different look HERE.

I added the perfect sentiment, Goofy Stuff, cutting the sentiment into pieces
to create sentiment strips.

My next card uses the new, You Are Special stamp, along with the Butterfly 2 image.

Again, this background was made using alcohol inks, then die cut with a scalloped
rectangle die.  I stamped and colored the butterfly, then added some gold
highlights using gold foil.  I also added gold foil to the areas of the alcohol
ink that remained tacky.

The You Are Special sentiment is stamped with Ranger Archival Ink and
took a bit of time to dry on the Yupo paper.
