I'm too Sexy. . .

I love using kitties for Halloween cards!  This is a fun one, especially when you add googly eyes!  Don't forget to get your cat creations going so you can enter the fabulous Cat Lovers' Blog Hop!
She doesn't look too sexy; she looks terrified! Hehehehehehehehe!
What I Used to Make my Card:
Black Card Base
Sentiment, Riley & Co., RWD-496
Tim Holts/Stampers Anon Crazy Cat Stamps, #CMS251
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Crazy Cats Dies, #661209
Tim Holtz/Stampers Anon Crazy Things Stamps, #CMS237
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Crazy Things Dies, #660953
Water Color Paper
Blender Pen
Derwent Inktense Pencils
Lawn Fawn Starry Skies, #LF1377
Lawn Fawn Blue Skies Dies, LF519
Silver Cardstock
Ranger Archival ink in Jet Black
Distress Ink in Hickory Smoke
Googly Eyes
Dimensional Dots

I had made my cat already - stamped on watercolor paper, colored with Derwent pencils with a blender pen and cut out.  I also stamped, colored and cut the broom and witches hat from the Crazy Things stamps and dies.  I stamped the sentiment from Riley & Company on white card using Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black and fishtailed the end (see my technique here).  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card on the left hand side.  I die cut the clouds out of the Lawn Fawn Blue Skies and edged them with Hickory Smoke ink, then set them aside.

I put the witches hat on my nervous kitty, added some comical googly eyes and set her onto the card.  Using silver cardstock, I die cut the Starry Skies die and made a bunch of tiny stars.  I then added the kitty and the broom onto the card. Filling in some of the negative space, I glued the tiny stars all around and then placed the large cloud.  I used dimensional dots to adhere the smaller cloud just to add some interest.  

Now I have got a huge stash of Halloween cards and each year it just gets bigger and bigger, any ideas on what I could do with them all? I'd love to hear your ideas in my comments!

Lastly, I have a small giveaway going on and here are all the details:

  10. I love your cat's surprised expression, the google eyes, and all her angles! Thanks for sharing it with us at Die Cuttin' Divas.

    I found a couple organizations that accept handmade cards. It's too late for this year's Halloween, but hold onto them until next year and then send them. The first one is Send a Smiel4 Kids

    and the other is Cards for Hospitalized Kids

  12. This little Halloween scene is beautiful and hilarious at the same time, which is really the perfect combination if you think about it, right? Your coloring technique is fabulous and I love the goggly eyes. I used to make lots of Halloween cards each year too and I sent them out to everyone I knew. This year however, I seem to have forgotten to make any so I dug deep into my card stash and found a few really old ones to send to my granddaughters. Everyone else will just have to make do with a Christmas card later in the year!
