More Cats...

Happy Saturday,

I thought i would share a couple of samples made with the Izink Diamonds and the Cat stencil from yesterdays shows on Hochanda.

I used the Gold, chestnut and orange diamonds glitter paint through the mask onto acetate.  I then made a frame using the Press Cut plain squares dies and foam mounted the piece over a square of wool felt from my stash.

I cut the cats paws, stencilled in gold on black, using the press cut plain circles dies.  I matted these onto gold card and added them, with a twist of string for whiskers, on the side.

The next card is very simple jus gold and orange diamonds glitter paint through the stencil onto black card.



  1. Morning John, gorgeous cards and loving all your samples, managed to get some of the diamonds glitter paint but hope you bring back the large stencils soon.

  2. Hi John
    What a great product the Diamonds Glitter paint is.Loved all your samples and these cards are so cute.

  3. Morning John, well I hope you have had a good nights sleep because you have had a fantastic few days on the show, you must be knackered with all the wonderful samples you have made, I think you said 60 bags, endless cushions, aprons, cards, and the wonderful, wonderful mirror - I did like that. When I first saw the product I thought to myself ' not really my thing' but then when I saw all the samples especially what you could do with it from a card crafter perspective (loved the butterflies on acetate that doesn't crack) - yes you have guessed it, I placed my order, now got to wait normally about 10 days for it to come through but that is fine because I can scroll through all the shows and review them again, I always miss something so I find this is the best thing for me to do. Any congrats on a wonderful product and brilliant shows.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  4. Absolutely loved your shows John. I thought ‘I don’t need any more glitter, I’ve got tons of the stuff’ then I saw what you could do with yours and I was hooked, order placed. Thank you for all the inspiration.
