I jumped straight in and pulled out the Stitched Alphabet set with classic font and nice stitched detailing, the cute critters, Encouraging Animals set with the most adorable kitty and the inspiring words of the Thank You Teacher set.

I started this card by white heat embossing the Stitched Alphabet letters on a panel of Fog card. I pulled all the letters that I wanted from the backer sheet and then laid the sheet in the Misti. I used this as a guide to evenly spacing the letters.

I also white heat embossed the Nelson Mandela sentiment from the Thank You Teacher set but this time on to black card. I then cut around the sentiment with a Stitched Square and rubbed white pigment ink around the edges with my finger to give a chalkboard look.

Isn’t the cat wearing glasses from the Encouraging Animals set adorable! I stamped him in Intense Black ink, coloured with Copics and die cut with the matching die. I added glitter pen and white gel pen details to his fur and also Tonic Crystal Glaze to the glasses.

Finally I mounted all the elements on a white card base and added a trio of enamel dots in primary colours to finish.

You can check out the Encouraging Words release here. I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun-filled hop to celebrate the new release. Here’s a peek at the colourful watercolour card I will be sharing – I couldn’t resist that kitty again!
