All You Need is Love...And A Cat

Hello Friends!

I wanted to share a card that I created using the fun Kitty Love stamp set from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps for the Splitcoaststampers CC565 Color Challenge along with the Ways toUse It WT573 “Pet Sitters” Challenge.

This is also one of the designs for the February 2016 Cards for A Cause Card Drive for the Tri-County Humane Society in Monticello, MN :-)

I hope you will find time to visit the above galleries, and if you are interested, please come join in on the Cards for A Cause card drive- March’s Cards for A Cause Card Drive information is here (FYI- last year Splitcoaststampers sent over 6300+ cards to worthy causes for the monthly card drives- what an honor to be part of that this year). 

To create this card:

Ink the stretching cat image from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) Kitty Love set using Stampin’ Up! Black Archival Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock (I used my MISTI® Tool for alignment and repeated stamping to get the images nice and dark and I also sped up the ink drying time by heat setting the image with the Heat Tool).

Align the first part of the sentiment above the cat image and stamp using Stampin’ Up! Black Archival Ink (this is where the MISTI® really comes in handy for me).

Use a pencil to add the shadows for the kitty, cut out the cat panel and mount onto Basic Black cardstock. 

On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the rest of the sentiment along with a few paw prints using Stampin’ Up! Black Archival Ink, trim the sentiment, create the banner points with the Hexagon Punch, mount onto Basic Black cardstock ( again using the Hexagon Punch to create the banner points) and add a Real Red heart (from the Owl Builder Punch).

Add a piece of black and white designer  paper to a piece of Basic Black cardstock, mount onto the Whisper White card base, add the Real Red vertical panel and mount the kitty image panel directly to the card front.

Add the sentiment using dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Quick and simple- and I agree, the love of a cat is wonderful!!
