Swing Top Cards

What are Swing Top Cards?  Cards that instead of opening the normal way, the top swivels to reveal the sentiment on the bottom layer.  I guess I could have called them Swivel Top cards...but oh, well.  Swing Top it is.

Meet Calendar Girl.  Isn't she and her kitty sweet?  You can download her below.

I love the sweet kitty with the mouse.  I saw these Little Meow stamps on Fiki's (a.k.a. Bad Kitty) blog and started looking for them.  I found my set on ebay and it had to come from the UK.  There are three different sets of kitties made by DoCrafts.  I think the doily stamp on this one is really pretty.  Well, I can't find this set anywhere now.  Did I get the last one????

Both cards swing open on a brad.

I hole punched the plaid circle and just used a hole in the doily to connect them together with a brad.  Those pretty blue dots are made with Nuvo Crystal Drops.  

Tip:  The rosette is accented with a piece of washi tape.  Fun!

Here's the inside of the Calendar Girl card.  The sentiment is included in the download.

Dropbox seems to work differently for different people.  Either right click and save when image appears or click the download button in the top right corner.  If neither method works, email me and I'll send the files to you.

So glad you stopped by.  Have a  PURR-fectly, lovely day!

You're the Best! O-Fish-ally.

Best Fishes.  O-Fish-ally.   Yeah, a little corny, but oh, so cute!  Look at his adorable little face.  And what about that pretty plaid and cute little fish?  Used my Clarity stencil brushes again.

You caught me (did you "catch" that fishing pun?) - this is another Outside In card.  That's where things usually found on the outside of a card are instead on the inside.  This one has the image and some twine on the inside.  I'm having so much fun with these.

I"m also having fun with the stencil brushes.  Seriously, LOVE the plaid.  It's so soft and pretty.   First applied the lighter blue ink and then came back in with the stencil angled the opposite with the darker ink.

If you want to see a video (and more Outside In cards) using the Clarity Stencil Brushes, check out THIS POST.  

The cutie pie fishing boy is available for download and the sentiments are there, too.

So, catch the image for yourself and create a little something.  Best Fishes to all of you.  YOU are the best!  O-FISH-ALLY.
