Today I have a super fun card! When I first saw the Mama Elephant “Nom nom kitties” stamp set I knew I wanted to make this card: a cat café ruled by ninjas! But in this café, the kittens are the customers.

To make this card I first stamped all the images from Mama Elephant “Tiny ninjas” and “Nom nom kitties” stamp sets on Bristol paper with Versafine Onyx black ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, and fussy cut everything. Then, I die cut a piece of Bristol paper using the big frame die from Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies, masked the upper portion, stamped Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain Backdrops” stamp with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, and blended Gathered Twigs Distress ink. Next, I masked the bottom portion of the panel and blended Tattered Rose Distress ink. I also stamped randomly the little sakura flower stamp from Lawn Fawn “Let’s roll” stamp set using the same ink -I love Japanese-themed stamps!! I also made a shoji door die cutting a piece of kraft cardstock using the window frame from Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies and gluing vellum paper on the backside. Finally, I adhered everything to the panel. I had to cut the ninjas to avoid showing through the door. I love how they’re looking at the cats astonished!

Let’s take a look to the inside of the card. I knew I wanted to make a pop-up card, so I trimmed down a piece of Bristol paper to an A2 size card. I inked the upper part with Tumbled Glass Distress ink, spritzed some water, and dried it with a paper towel after few seconds. Then, I used the same Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain backdrops” stamp on the bottom portion of the card. Next, I used Lawn Fawn “Everyday pop-ups” dies and glued the cats and the ninjas to the pop-up elements. I added some sushi and the prawn and the narutomaki to two pieces of acetate I adhered to the backside of the ninjas. I love that it looks like they are in a hurry and the food is flying away 🙂

I also die cut some trees and leaves from color cardstock using Mama Elephant “Birch trees” dies, and glued them to the background. This way it seems one of those Japanese restaurants where you can enjoy a view of the garden while you are having lunch. Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant “Tandem extras” on a piece of vellum I previously die cut with Lawn Fawn “Small stitched ovals” with Versamark ink, heat embossed it using white embossing powder, and glued it to the card. Last, I adhered the front panel to the outside of the card base and the inner part to the inside or the card base.

I really had fun making this card and I love how both Mama Elephant stamp sets work together so well!! I hope you like it!

Have a nice day!!
