Wishing You A Purr-Fect Valentine Day- Three Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!!

This Clean and Layered (CAL) card was created for the Splitcoaststampers CC515 Color Challenge (Real Red, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso with dessert option of two punches) along with the SR264 Stampin’ Royalty Love/Valentine Challenge and the Paper Players PP230 Critter Valentine Theme Challenge :-)

Again, if you have not had the chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit each of the above sites- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the stamp image using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. 

Color the image using Stampin’ Write markers – Crumb Cake for the cats and Real Red for the hearts ..FYI- my Crumb Cake marker was a bit dry (I have had the same marker for years)  so I also added a bit of color with a Derwent® Raw SiennaWatercolor Pencil to even the tone :-)). 

Ink the heart border from Chalk Lines using Real Red Classic Ink and stamp onto the bottom part of the image (below the kitties :-)).

Center the image on the Big Shot™ with the Hearts Collection Framelits™ and cut out the main image along with another heart from Early Espresso cardstock.

Cut the Early Espresso heart in half and layer behind the main image panel.

Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto another piece of Whisper White cardstock and color the hearts with the Real Red marker.  

Trim the sentiment panel and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, trim and mount onto the Real Red card base.

Mount the heart focal image panel onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Use the Bow Builder Punch to create a bow from Real Red cardstock.   Add the Early Espresso button (with a strip of Real Red cardstock to mimic thread) to the center and mount onto the card front to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Chalk Lines, Furry Kisses (Simon Says Stamp)

Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black, Real Red; Stampin’ Write Markers- Crumb Cake, Real Red; Derwent® Watercolor Pencil- Raw Sienna

Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Real Red

Your card had me with those sweet kitties!I am an animal lover with a real bias to cats. The heart and bow is a wonderful base for them to perch on.
Thank you for playing with the Paper Player Critter-tine challenge this week.
