1/24 Kids, Paint and Cats

The Ways to Use It Challenge today is to use Acrylic Paint on your card. No problem for me! I just went to my stash of painted backgrounds that my kids and daycare kids have painted through the years. I found this bright background that I think my daughter made by squirting paint onto a page protector and then squishing a piece of cardstock onto it. I wanted to keep the painted background as prominent as possible so I opted to embellish with a bold piece of ribbon and a piece of scallop paper to trim the top. Next, I needed to find an image that would keep the background a big part of the card. I decided to use a new stamp set called Celebrate Everything. I chose the "Good Times" sentiment because paint and kids equals a good time for sure!

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Celebrate Everything
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Slit Punch, non SU Ribbon, Acrylic Paint, Page Protector

My 10 year old daughter is about to turn 11 and one of her favorite stamp sets of all time is called Cats Mini. It is an old set . . . retired by SU ages ago. But, she pulls it out to stamp with often so I decided to make her birthday card with it.

This card is 3 1/4" x 6 1/4" and these are the supplies I used:

Stamps: Cats Mini (retired), Small Sayings (retired)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Naturals Ivory, Odds and Ends from my "stash" that is non SU
Ink: StazOn Black, More Mustard, Creamy Caramel
Accessories: Paper Piercer, Notched Corner Punch, non SU Ribbon, AquaPainter, Markers
