Kitty Play

Hello friends

Oooo I have something special to share with you today!
Kitty Play is one of the new pre-order sets of dies I've been chatting about,
a special UK release for retailers.  It is such a lovely set, cats with real character.
I also love the little additions - mouse, fish, ball of wool and paw prints.

How about these for amazing cards....all created with Kitty Play by a very talented lady...
 Such a clever idea to use the negative/silhouette.
 So cute!

All of these cards have been made by Yana Smakula who is on the Spellbinders Design Team.
Yana lives in the Ukraine and her designs are beautiful,
she is also mummy to two cats.
You can visit Yana's blog here - stop a while and definitely be inspired.

And there's more - a video showing you exactly how to recreate these gorgeous cards.
The video lasts just over 5 minutes, if you experience any problems viewing it try
refreshing your page and press play...gremlins have come out to play today!

Kitty Play is available to pre-order here and expected to arrive early March.
I think they are purr-fect!  (Sorry, couldn't resist).

Lastly, I took note of all your questions yesterday regarding discontinued
dies etc and I will be chatting about that tomorrow.

Take care friends - hope you have time for crafting today.

Hi Christine. What cute cards, I love the backing papers Yana has used too, what a talented lady : )
I look forward to hearing what you have to say about discontinued basic dies, I see I am not the only one upset about them.
Only 3 sleeps now : )
Take care. Mrs B x

Morning Christine, Wow, I love these kitty play dies, especially the filigree bodies, they are gorgeous. I love how the DT have used the negative for these cards, I can't understand how she has got the 'shadow' effect though, will need to watch the video to see how that is done.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine,
This set of dies are great and the cards today are lovely.
I hope you have a good day. Take care. x.

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Christine (again), Boohoo, I have just watched Yana's video and it didn't show how she got the shadow effect, do you think you could find out for me please ??
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine,
Lovely cards, not a cat person myself but can see the appeal.
Great shadow effect.

Chris said...

Hi Christine,
A great idea with the new cat dies, they certainly capture the characteristics of the cats.

Pretty cards and thank you for listening about the Grand Dies... such an opportunity missed by Spellbinders for much loved Dies!
Take care
Love Marg

Hi again Christine, I've managed to see the 'full' video now, thank you, it was only 2 mins the first time I tried. The technique is very cleverly done with 2 pieces of coloured paper behind strategically placed, very clever.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

More great dies to entice us Christine. Hugs Rita xxx

Bejay Roles said...

Hi Christine,
dare I say that this set is to 'die' for!!! I love kitty cats and I think I'm going to have to put these on my wish list. Off to watch the video now. x

val jones said...

Hi Christine. My daughter is ordering them for me today. Sorry but I can't see the small writing on the invoice.
Love the cards made by them.
Thanks for showing them.
Love Val in Spain x

Hi Christina
What a very talented lady Yana is. As you said a different take on the dies. I look forward to hearing what you have to say about discontinued dies. As I said yesterday, I fell in love with the Grand Labels 1 after seeming them used on Christina Griffiths blog.

SusanP, Kent said...

Wow I love these pretty kitties and what Yana has done with them. I shall take a look at her blog. There are so many inspiring crafters and card designers (yourself included) with blogs to look at. It's a miracle that I have time to do anything - let alone make cards!

Stamping Bubbles said...

Hi Christine
What a lovely collection of cards. Yana is a very talented lady.
Great pun!
Take care

AnneRD said...

A lovely set of cards using the dies Christine, must check out Yana's blog. Background paper makes for very interesting sillouettes. Hope you include South Wales in your tour as Ammbasador. Anne x

Yana Smakula said...

Hi everyone! This is Yana :) I just wanted to stop by and thank you all for the lovely comments! I'm so glad you liked these cards! And thank you Christine for featuring them! Hugs!

Janice said...

Very different cards from Yana, but I am not a cat lover I'm afraid, so these dies are not for me. Good job we are not all the same!
