Instructions: Card size is 7 3/4 x 5 1/2". Cut white cardstock to 7 3/4 x 11". Score and fold at 5 1/2". Cut pink paper from paper collection to 7 1/2 x 5 1/4" and adhere onto card base. Choose purple paper from paper collection and cut into 7 3/4 x 1". Use paper distresser along edges to give a rough unfinished look. Adhere using adhesive squares (you may have to trim the two outer strips so they're less than 1"). Use decorative paper from paper pad and cut to 7 3/8 x 5 1/8". Die cut the top and bottom with the plain Fleur Border dies. Die cut 4 hexagons onto this panel. Cut white cardstock to 7 3/8 x 5 1/4", die cut the decorative Fleur Border on both ends. Adhere hexagon panel on white coordinating cardstock using foam dots, avoid putting any dots too close to the edge of the hexagons, since we'll still slide a few things underneath.
In the large hexagon insert stamp sentiment in Majestic Violet ink and adhere inside bottom hexagon. Pair two hexagon dies together, to die cut white cardstock, creating a frame. I layered 4 frames together, gluing each layer using Dries Clear glue. This creates a thicker frame. Sponge same glue onto top of hexagon frame and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear. Allow to dry. Die cut Intricate Swirls on white cardstock x2. Use scissors to cut in various sizes and adhere on one large and one small hexagon from white cardstocks (leftover from die cutting your frames) and small hexagon from paper collection. Adhere the hexagon backgrounds directly on the white background using dries clear glue.
Stamp Kitten border and feline lady using Jet Black ink onto white cardstock. Stamp leaves from Simply Classic stamp set in Leaf Green ink. Die cut with coordinating dies. Color border kittens using daubers along with Sepia and Jet Black inks. I also blended Sunflower ink on the walking kitty, to give it a more orange shade. Color the feline lady's hat with Sunflower and Sepia, the leaves with Vivid Chartreuse and the flowers with Cactus Flower. I also used a Dove Blender to add a soft shade of pink using Cactus Flower to the ears and nose of all the kittens. Use the Dove Blender, the solution and Jet Black ink to create a soft shade of gray, and add shadowing to the white feline lady. Shape with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Finally use the Texture Paste and a plastic spoon to apply paste to feline lady. Use the spoon to give short taps creating fluffy fur on feline lady. Color leaves with Vivid Chartreuse and Leaf Green ink and shape with Deluxe Flower shaping kit.
Stamp lots of Purr-fect Posies using Cactus Flower ink, and the leaves with Leaf Green ink onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Die cut using coordinating dies. Color 4 of the extra small posies on the front and back using Sunflower ink with a touch of Cactus Flower in the center. Color the small posies with Sunflower and Cactus Flower. Color the medium posies with Sunflower in the center and Cactus Flower on the petals. Color the large ones with Cactus Flower in the center and Majestic Violet on the petals. Color the leaves with Vivid Chartreuse and Leaf Green ink. Shape using the coordinating mold, along with a water mister.
Choose stamens from the bridal stamen collection and ink the stamens with daubers Most of them I colored with Sunflower ink, but 4 I did Cactus Flower ink. Use the stylus to shape the 4 extra small posies in a bud shape, pierce the center and insert the Cactus Flower stamen. Glue to secure. Layer flowers as desired, pierce the center and insert Sunflower colored stamens. Adhere kittens in hexagons as shown, adhere feline lady using foam dot.
