  • Kitty Halloween

    A fun & colorful Halloween kitty card using a couple of new sets and some Halloween paper. Great way to use several left over scraps of paper.

    A big congrats to Pat, the newest Featured Stamper (FS872)! She has a fun gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the pumpkin theme & layout, but used different images & dies, moved the greeting & changed the vertical band to a horizontal band.

    For my card, I colored & die cut the cat coffee cup & cute little kitty along w/ his hat & broom. I trimmed off the bottom & between the ears of the cat cup & added “pumpkin” lines w/ a Copic marker after I colored it.  I also cut out an extra pair of ears for the little kitty & made little slits on the hat brim to insert them.  It’s just a little detail I wanted to add so the kitty would look like a kitty w/ the hat on.  I had just these size pieces of paper leftover from another project so I married the 2 large one together & used the circle piercing die on them. The black patterned strip was attached across the join & then I die cut them as one piece using the stitched rectangle die.

    The cat cup & kitty were popped up just a bit & the greeting stamped along side them. For the sparkly button in the corner, it was clear & I used the 2 Copics I used on the kitty hat to color the top of it. The purple frame was made by cutting w/ 2 sizes of Deckled Rectangles.
    Here are the Copics I used:

  • Christmas Cat

    A cute little kitty Christmas card w/ Christmas tree cupcake & coffee. Perfect for the cat & coffee lover.

    We are visiting Nature’s Jewelry & their Pinterest Board for this week’s Inspiration Challenge (IC920). I combined a couple of pieces as inspiration for my card. THIS cat & THIS tree.

    After stamping, coloring & die cutting the images, I die cut a large tree print paper & smaller white panel. I added a very narrow red layer in-between the two for contrast. The greeting was stamped on a separate rectangle & layered onto a fancy red oval.

    I added some stickles to the ornaments, whipped cream & a couple of stripes on the cat’s sweater for a little sparkle.

    Here are the Copics I used:

  • Calm Cat

    A big congrats to Gayle, the newest Featured Stamper (FS792) on Splitcoast! She has a sweet little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & most of the colors, but used different images, dies, added some layers & did a little dry embossing.

    For my ginger yoga cat, I stamped & colored it w/ Copics, then stamped the Calm part of the greeting right under it. A narrow dk brown layer along w/ the rust colored loopy edge layer were added behind. The white layer was embossed w/ a folder & since I didn’t have a large enough dk brown layer to add under it, I colored just the edge of another white layer w/ a dk brown Copic. The rest of the greeting was stamped on a narrow strip & attached on the embossed layer. A piece of designer paper was the final layer.

    Here are the Copics I used:
