CAS Card in Honor of "Queenie" :-)
Hi Again Stampers!!
Here is another quick card that I created using the CASOLOGY #104- Pet and the PPA212 Pals Paper Arts Sketch (love this sketch! :-))
As soon as I saw the cue word from CASOLOGY, I knew that I could create a card with a cat stamp that I found at Michael’s years ago in the dollar bin (that until today had not been inked at all :-)).
We had just adopted two kittens that we destined for the shelter (if they had not found a home) and one of the kittens looked just like the stamp. Since she was little, she had a "regal" attitude so we nicknamed her “Queenie”. She loved to wrap her fluffy tail around the face of our older male kitty and then pose in such a pretty manner (trust me, he could not resist her and was in love at first site :-))
To this day, she has a wonderful temperament and queen-like behavior that befits her nickname perfectly!
Again, I hope you have a chance to visit the above sites to check out the Design Team samples and other entries- both galleries are full of great designs!
To create this “hybrid” card:
Ink the cat image using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Color the image using the Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Old Olive Collection for the eyes, Daffodil Delight Collection for the crown and Stampin’ Write markers for the fur (Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate).
Punch the image out using the 2” Circle Punch and also punch 2” Circles from Sahara Sand and Basic Black cardstock. Split the Sahara Sand and Basic Black circles in half and mount behind the cat image.
For the crown, paw prints and sentiment, use My Digital Studio and print the images onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the crown using the Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Daffodil Delight Collection and punch both images out using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch (also punching 1 3/8” Circles from Sahara Sand and Basic Black cardstock, splitting these circles in half and mounting behind the crown and paws images).
Add a strip of Basic Black cardstock along with ½ of a White Tea Lace Paper Doily (attached at the bottom) to the Sahara Sand background and mount this layer onto a Basic Black card base.
Add the images along the black strip and the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
