Hi all! I'm thrilled to be settled enough to enter my kitty cards in the Cat Lover's Blog Hop
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - #175, Things that go Bump in the Night (if you have cats, you hear bumps in the night all year round) Make my Monday - #33, I put a Spell on You DRS Designs - Inspired By Color
For those of you that haven't been reading my blog long, you can learn all about my fur babies by clicking on the page at the top of my blog, or, just click here.
I had colored in a bunch of the Crazy Cats a while ago (I color while watching TV) and water colored them with Distress Markers and Kuretake Clean Color Markers. If I can recall what I used for each design I will certainly let you know. Everything is stamped with waterproof black ink pads.
OK, enough housekeeping stuff, on to my first card:
What I Used to Make my Card:
White Card Base
Tim Holtz Crazy Cats #CMS251
Tim Holtz Crazy Things #CMS237
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Crazy Cats Dies #661209
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Crazy Things Dies #660953
Distress Ink in Ground Expresso
"If the Broom Fits" Sticker by Echo Park, Hocus Pocus Collection, #HP91016
After seeing the card, I imagine it is fairly self explanatory, but, here are a few steps anyway. I stamped the Crazy Cat on watercolor paper and proceeded to color it in. I stamped the witch's hat, in black ink and the broom, in brown ink, from the Crazy Things set and then colored and die cut all the pieces out with the matching dies. Glued the hat and the broom onto the cat, pop dotted the cat onto the card and lastly, stuck the sentiment sticker on.
I absolutely love Halloween, it's my favorite time of year, so don't be surprised that I'll be matching cats with the season. Thanks so much for stopping by and I am sure Janis from Her Peaceful Garden would love it if you made a few cat cards and joined in the fun! ~ Christi
