Pretty Kitty Pop 'n' Twist Card

 For quite a while now I've been wanting to try a Pop 'n' Twist card. My dear cat-crazy friend was having a birthday, and it seemed a fun way to include lots of kitty images onto one card.

My instructions came from a few sources, but mainly a US demo, France Martin. She made her sample using the Butterfly Basics and a few other butterfly related sets. It might be an idea to watch her video a couple of times before you attempt one. I am planning to hold a Saturday class in May at my home studio in South Morang, Victoria. It will be the one card and an envelope, everything supplied, $20. You'll have a choice of images to use, so don't worry if cats aren't your 'thing'.

After choosing a DSP, I elected to use Mint Macaroon as the main colour. If this is a favourite shade of yours, it's time to check your stock and order, as this is one of the five colours which will drop at the end of May. Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder also co-ordinate with Birthday Bouquet DSP. That DSP is no longer available, but I did have some hoarded away!!!

The mechanism of this card isn't as hard as it may seem, and once you've made one, you'll be pumping them out all the time. It's quite amazing seeing the images unfold, and the colouring of these is very relaxing too. As this card featuring Pretty Kitty (page 101, Annual Catalogue) has already left my house, I have partly-made another with Bella & Friends, (also page 101, A.C) which has a cute wee dog. They are two sets which are perfect to mix 'n' match together.

More of the Birthday Bouquet DSP featured inside, and the colouring was done with the new Watercolour pencils from the Occasions Catalogue. I even made a matching Mint Macaroon envelope with the In Colour Envelope Paper, it's only $4.20 AU in the Clearance rack for a pack of 20 12inch square sheets - bargain!

If you do shop in my online store, use the hostess code 2RFDUTSY,and I will send you a thank you.
Let me know if you're interested in a Saturday afternoon class. I have 6th May and 13th May free at present.

Happy crafting
