Kitty Love- Cats Leave Pawprints on Your Heart

Hi Friends! 

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!

To create this card:

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.

Stamp Sets:  Kitty Love (Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps)

Ink:  Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black; Clear Wink of Stella®

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, retired Love Blossoms DSP

This pretty little card is just lovely. The embossing, paw prints, cat silhouette, and heart-warming sentiment sum up everything that is wonderful about cats.

Julie, This card could not have been made for a more purrfect time. Our friend up north had a beautiful Maine Coon outdoor/indoor cat. She lives in the heart of the Adirondacks and for 3 weeks Mojo has not come home. I am going to CASE your card and send it to her. Mojo was very unique and she has had him for years. It's a sad thing. We had a missing cat for 3 weeks up north, lived in the woods, but ours was an indoor cat and had no front claws. I prayed every day and didn't cease...lo and behold, the cat was living under our neighbor's porch and had not lost too much weight. It was a joyful reunion when the neighbor saw our poster in the store and called us!
