Kitty Dreams- A Quilt for a Color and a Sketch Challenge
Hi Again Stampers!
I wanted to create a card using the FabFri26 Colors along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #20 (again, if you have not visited these sites yet, I encourage you to do so and check out the Design Team samples as well as the other entrants!)
I love cats and decided to use My Digital Studio (MDS) to create another "hybrid" card :-)
The original version of MDS had a few sets that I had not purchased in the actual rubber sets (actually, they may have been exclusive to MDS) and two of them had cats, so of course, I had to use them :-)
I had originally printed these images out a few months ago and when I saw the “quilt” sketch pattern for this week's AHSC Sketch, I knew that they would be “purr-fect” for my kitty quilt card…lol!!
In My Digital Studio (MDS), open a blank 8.5 x 11 custom page and insert the cat from Pattern Pets – resize and copy the image, mirror the copied image (so one cat is facing the opposite way) and remember to leave enough room between images to use the punch to cut them out.
Insert the sentiment from Loving Thoughts (re-size as well) and add the mouse from Cute Cats (again, re-sized).
Print out the images on Whisper White cardstock and use the 1 ¼” Square Punch (or the new Square Framelits™ to cut out the cats) and cut the banner using the trimmer and the square punch for the banner points. I had mounted the cat images originally onto Basic Black cardstock (using the 1 3/8” Square Punch) but that step could be avoided.
Use the 1 ¼” Square Punch to punch out the “quilt” squares from the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper (DSP). Arrange onto a piece of scrap paper alternating the squares and adding the cats in the diagonal corners.
Use the Trio of Hearts Punch (retired) to punch out the hearts from a piece of the Chocolate Chip Sweater Weather DSP and adhere to the center of the squares.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the entire panel and add the Metallic Brads to the corners of the center square.
Mount the entire panel onto Basic Black cardstock and then again onto Sahara Sand cardstock.
Add the Pool Party ½” Seam Binding Triple Ribbon bow on the diagonal (I have not received my Soft Sky yet and the Pool Party is close enough) and the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Mount the entire quilt onto another piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhere to the Whisper White card base.

Ink: Printer Ink- Black
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Sweater Weather DSP
