Hi everyone and Happy Monday! :) Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Ours was crazy busy on Saturday, we had a lot of errands to run but hubby did take me to TGI Fridays (I love that place :)) for a nice lunch. Yesterday we did chores around the house and I was able to get some work done in the craft room. Unfortunately I didn't get a layout done, but I did manage to get a few cards done and I have a couple kitten themed cards to share with you today.
For my first card, I created this adorable shaped cat card using my Gypsy and my Create a Critter cartridge. I first welded the cat to the fluffy pillow. Then I copied that image, then flipped it upside down, then welded it to the first cat at the ears so as to create a card base. I then cut out the other layers and put everything together. Next I did lots of doodling with my white gel pen (I love using this, I really think it adds some dimension to the cuts). I then added some chalk for "blush" to her cheeks, a small bow to her hair, and a pearl to the center of her collar bow. The sentiment is from an old Studio G set. What do you think?
For my second card, I cut out this adorable image using my Meow cricut lite cartridge (this is a super cute cartridge and is on sale right now at Wal-Mart if you are looking for it). I cut the image out and used the "hide contour" feature to hide the face on the girl and the face on the cat. I then used my Peachy Keen face stamps for the face for the girl (the Wide-Eyed Kids collection) and the kitten (Princess face assortment collection). I then put all the pieces together and did some doodling with my white gel pen. Next I created the frame behind the image using the Twinkle Toes lite cartridge. I next created my card base and then adhered my DP (from MME). I added a double looped bow (tied with my Bow Easy), rhinestones in the corner, dew drops, and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. I then adhered my image to the frame with dimensionals and then adhered the frame to the card base with dimensionals. The sentiment is from a new Studio G $1 stamp at Michael's. What do you think?
Last but not least, here's a picture of our fur babies:
The striped kitty is Henry and the black kitty is Charlie. They are spoiled rotten, but we love them so much :) They inspired my cards today so I thought I'd share a picture of them with you.
Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful Monday.
