May Release Day Blog Hop

May Blog Hop

It’s FINALLY Release Day and I am so excited to bring you this awesome collection. Throughout the week we’ve been showing you all the great stamps and dies and how you can use them in your cards. Today, we are going all out and the ENTIRE Cat Pack is hopping.

If you came from Brenda’s Blog, you are at the end of the hop. If not, go to Melissa’s Blog and start there.


For my card, I decided to go the black, white, and yellow combo route. For a little twist, I added a little grey in the stripe and divine twine.

I’ve been itching to use our NEW FolkArt Bundle and the Flutter By Die. So, of course I had to pull them out for my hop card. I really love how the Flutter By die pierces, cuts, embosses and stitches all at once. It give a wonderful sense of movement. I’m going to be using this die again and again.


This card uses Versafine Clair black ink and my favorite Marvy in yellow. I have yet to find an ink that stamps detailed stamps and has so many colors. I did use my Misti and stamped a couple of times to get really good coverage of the stamp. The white is Stampin’ Up craft ink that I embossed in detail white powder.

The Rectangle Stamp Die frames out the blossoms and the Grass die cuts a “stripe” that gives even more pattern to this card.

I also wanted to play in the TCP Tuesday Move It Challenge so I pulled out my new favorite interactive die, the Spiral CutUps. It’s so easy to make the inside of your card pop with this die.

I pulled out the Butterfly Trio and cut 4 white butterflies. I also cut 3 butterflies using the Flutter By Die and put them on acetate strips for more height and movement. I’m really proud of this little card. Here’s a little video on how I made it.

If you want a second look at The Cat Pack, take another peek. The cards are definitely worth it. C’mon! You know you want to.
