Hello Kitty Punch Art card

Hello Kitty is, again, all the rage!  I remember when she made her first appearances and my owning a full stationary set, including stamps!  (I was in Elementary/Jr. High?? and my love of paper raged even then!!)  So celebrating my girl's 8th birthday this past weekend We gave her this cute card to tie into her Hello Kitty Gumball machine!  Join me in making this Framelit/Punch-Art card to sweeten the day!
Create this card with:
Whisper White card stock (#100730)
Basic Black card stock (#121045)
Strawberry Slush card stock (#131295)
Strawberry Slush ink (#131178)
Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper (#130141)
Large Pearl Jewels (#125577)
Aqua Painters (#103954)
Scallop Oval Punch (#119856)
Small Oval Punch (#120908)
Ovals Collection Framelits (#129381)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439)
Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658)
Permanent Markers & Hot Glue
Using the Ovals Framelits and Whisper White card stock I punched out the large Hello Kitty face and smaller one oval for the ears.  Cutting the smaller in half and apply from behind so that the ears peek through. 
 
Cutting 1/4" x 1-1/2" strips of Basic Black card stock for the whiskers.  Accent the ears and small mouth with the Strawberry Slush ink and Aqua Painter.  (My daughter advised me that Hello Kitty doesn't have a mouth in any of her picutres... lol, geesh.)
 
Color in the adhesive backed Large Pearls that you colored in with Permanent Markers for the eyes, nose and on her bow. 
 
Layer this kitty over the Strawberry Slush card stock and differently patterned Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper. 
Create this cute 'bow' with two punched Quatrefancy Scallop Punched Ovals.  Fold them in 1/2 nad using Hot Glue then facing each other for this bow look.  Taking the Small Quatrefancy Oval and cover the center and hold while drying/cooling.

This sweet kitty is an ideal card for a pretty 8 year old's birthday!  Punch Art (here with Framelits and Punches) can be a fun way to play with your paper while delivering smiles!!  When stamps can't provide the ideal image, create it with paper!  I can't resist giving some of my childhood memories to my little girls... and this card, Hello Kitty and all, is just the right way to do so (while still being 'cool').

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
