Hello! So happy you’ve stopped over today for this fun, clean and simple card that I’m sharing… my design today features an adorable cat image from Penny Black Inc., which I thought would be great to turn into a cute ‘I forgot’ card.

I began by stamping the cat from the Penny Black Nine Lives stamp set in the bottom left portion of my card with StazOn Jet Black ink. With my Silhouette Cameo, I die cut a speech bubble mask from some copy paper and used the negative to do some ink blending. I used Aquatic Splash chalk ink, teal pigment ink and Peacock Feathers distress ink to create an ombre effect inside my bubble.




I dried the ink and then stamped the sentiment “ooopps” with the Milo’s ABCs stamp set by Lawn Fawn and Versamark ink; the sentiment was then heat embossed with white embossing powder. For a bit more stamping, I stamped some bubbles from the Avery Elle Storybook stamp set with some more of the Aquatic Splash ink.

Moving on, I used my Derwent watercolor pencils to add color to my images; orange and brown tones for the cat and some teal to color in the bubbles. With a white paint pen I added some highlights and details to the cat, for a bit of extra interest.

Lately I have really been into scoring frames around the edges of my cards to help finish them off, and for this card, I scored a double frame around it with my scoring board and a stylus. I also applied some Glossy Accents on the eyes and nose of the cat, as well as to all the bubbles floating in the background.




And finally, because I wanted to continue the sentiment to the inside of the card, I stamped “I sorta forgot” with some more StazOn ink onto a cardstock panel and scored a double frame around the edges, as I had for the front.

So that completes this whimsical, “I forgot” card, which could be used for a variety of occasions, such as apologies, belated birthdays, and more! I hope you enjoyed, and thanks again for taking the time to stop by!  :)



This card is submitted into the Addicted to CAS challenge #60 “Cute” and the Addicted to Stamps challenge #137 “Make Your Mark”.
