Cat Lovers Hop (3)


Hi, and welcome back to my third post for the Cat Lovers Hop
For this card, I have cut a piece of blue DP (unknown) for my background, and then diecut a scrap of green for my cat to sit on.
I have coloured him in pale grey copics and fussy cut
I coloured the balloon and also fussy cut and then coated it in Dimensional Magic.
The message is from an old clear set.
I have layered onto a dark blue card base but looks like my scan is crooked!

Cat Lovers Hop (2)


Hi everyone.
I am back with my second entry for the 2020 Cat Lovers Hop
I used some co-ordinating papers from one of my 6x6 pads, and also another of the Tim Holtz cats, which I stamped, cut out, and coloured. I also used a balloon from another set and tied to his tail
The message was stamped in black and heat embossed
The 3 diamante's were coloured with a black OHP marker and added to the orange strip

Cat Lovers hop (1)


Hi everyone, I have been missing in action for a wee while, as we have been away in our motorhome

This is the card that I made for my youngest son's birthday, as you can see he was turning the big 50!
I cut out the design on my Cameo and added a black dog and a tabby cat, to represent the pets the family has. Both are stamps by Tim Holtz
I am entering the challenge for the Cat Lovers Hop

Thanks for visiting

Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog today

I was inspired to make this card after seeing a post by Kath Stewart, so this is my interpretation, as I do not have the new cat stamps (I wish)
I started by making masks for the moon and snow from some scrap paper. I used 'black soot' and 'fossilized amber' distress inks to make the sky, and spritzed to make the colours run a little. After drying I used a very old Penny Black stamp (2001 - snowflake border) to stamp the snowflakes and embossed with detail white EP
I coloured my crazy bird with the following Promarkers
R766,  V546,  V528,  M419,  Y247
The sentiments are from a Clearly Besotted set called 'Rockin Robin'
I added a little 'hickory smoke' DOX to define the edge of the snow and a ground for the bird.

Cute Christmas snowman!


Hello all

A last minute entry for the Allsorts challenge of 'cute Christmas'
I attached some dp of Christmas trees to a dark green card base, diecut my snowman from some white card, and glued him to the left side. I coloured the little bird with a red Promarker and attached the red coloured peeloff to a scrap of white card.
An effective quick and easy card to add to my Christmas box
