Cat Lover's Blog Hop - #2 ~ Bunny Kitty

Hi all! Here is card #2 that I made to participate in the Cat Lover's Blog Hop 

If this is your second time here, feel free to skip all this stuff until you get to "What I Used to Make my Card", that will be different for each card I make for the hop. 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
Watercolor Paper
Tim Holtz Stamps Crazy Talk. #CMS236 
Tim Holtz Stamps Crazy Cats #CMS251
Tim Holtz Stamps Crazy Things #CMS237
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Crazy Cats Dies #661209
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Crazy Things Dies #660953
Crazy Eyes
Little White Puff Pom Pom Ball

After I die cut the cat and the ears, I colored the cat with Distress Markers and the outside of the ears with the Sharpie water based paint pen.  Let me just say that this Sharpie marker is the BEST white pen I have ever used.  You do have to be careful because you use a pump action to get the paint flowing and you can get a blob if you aren't paying attention.  But, the paint actually covers over other inks and such, and they last so much longer than any gel pen I've had.  Oh and they are fairly cheap! 

I glued the cat to my card base (after I cut off his ears - poor thing), then attached the pom pom and the crazy eyes.  I stamped the sentiment and viola, card is done and ready to go! 

Thank you SO much for reading all this and please come back tomorrow - the Cat Lover's Blog Hop runs until October 29, 2016 so I will be posting more cat cards, sometimes twice in one day (yippee!).  Hugs! Christi

  8. Oh my gosh! This is such a scream. I didn't recognize him as a crazy cat at first (see, the costume worked!). This is just too funny. I think I might have to find that paint pen since I always get frustrated with white pens and their inability to cover or work well.

  11. This is adorable! I do so love these stamps. The googly eyes are a nice addition too. banaszakv58atgmail.com USA

  12. Haha! That kitty looks embarrassed to be dressed as a bunny, which is so typically cat-like behavior. Cats prefer to be cats...and nothing less!
