Kitty Love- Cats Leave Pawprints on Your Heart
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! Today, I am sharing this quick Mixed Media Clean and Layered card for the 2016 Cat Lover’s Blog Hop.
I absolutely love kitties and over the course of forty+ years, I have had six kitties (two sets of three)- my two remaining "girls" are twelve at this time and with the exception of needing to lose a bit of weight, are in good health. They are my constant stamping companions and are always close to my side :-)
I decided to use the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Kitty Love Clear Stamp Set for my card for the 2016 Cat Lover's Blog Hop and also incorporated the Mojo Monday Mojo471 Sketch Challenge, Global Design Project #GDP05 “Pets/Animals” Challenge and Simon Says Wednesday “Think Pink” Challenge.
If you have not already visited the above sites, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
Emboss a piece of white cardstock with the paw prints embossing folder, trim and mount onto the black card base.
Die cut a circle from pink patterned designer paper with a stitched circle die, layer onto the scallop die cut circle from white cardstock and trim to cut off the bottom edge (per the sketch) before mounting onto the card front.
Ink the SNSS Kitty Love Clear Stamp Set image along with the sentiment with black archival ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock.
Ink the paw print image from SNSS Kitty Love Clear Stamp Set three times with black archival ink onto scrap white cardstock.
Die cut the kitty image and fussy cut the three paw prints- mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.
Create the banner from the same pink patterned designer paper, mount onto black cardstock, add the heart clip and mount onto the card front using dimensional foam.
Finish off the card by applying shimmer to the paw prints with a clear glitter pen.
