CUDDLY CATS! Art Impressions Twist Ties Card

Hello, all! Do you remember my first Art Impressions Twist Ties card from last year? When I saw this cat version, I just had to make it! So today I’m making a card using the Twist Ties Cats stamp and die set from Art Impressions.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I started out by creating the card base (instructions are on the back of the product packaging). I then stamped the two cat images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I lined up the dies and cut them using my die-cutting machine.

The cats were colored using Copic markers and then I ink blended three Distress Oxide ink colors (Abandoned Coral, Seedless Preserves, and Chipped Sapphire) on the inside of the card. I also stamped and white heat embossed the greeting and two hearts from the stamp set over the top of the ink blending.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back soon with another card video. :)

    I love this card and am ordering right now. I love my kitty-babies also. (Then I had to pick a cat hair out of my tea. Haha.) I love the color blending. Nice combo. I would love to see more interactive cards. My grandson loves them. Keep up the good work.
