Cat's Motto

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card.

For the background, I inked through the Stripy Spots Mask with Black Soot Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I moved the mask along a little to extend the design. I then inked around the edges with Black Soot.

I stamped The Triplets Stamp onto Coconut White Card using Black Soot. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B. I cut a Spellbinders A2 Polka Dots out of Black Card.

I stamped a section of the Kitten Treats Background onto some Blue White American Seam Binding using Jet Black Archival. I repeated stamping until I have covered a suffiecent length to wrap around the card and to tie a bow with 3 lengths of ribbon.

I stamped the sentiment from the Paws-itively Great A6 Clear Stamp Set using Black Soot. I cut it out using a die from Sue's Saltzburg Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Black Crystal Sparkler to the bow, some Small Black Dazzlers to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA around the edges.

I've popped the sample cards onto Facebook. You can see them all here.

Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Very cheeky! I love the sentiment My son was a zoo keeper and if he was still around he'd be substituting all sorts of animals eg tiger for cat , lion for dog. Chimp for cat, gorilla for dog It's made me smile

  14. Morning Julia,
    A very cheeky card, love it even though I'm a dog person. Watched the first show but the afternoon one I kept losing the connection so only say parts of it but what I saw was great.

  15. Love the card Julia I'm a dog person but got loads of cat friends who would love this card thank you loved the shows xxxxxjune xxxxx

  16. Good morning Julia, I really like these cute plump kitty's but what stands out for me is the soot ink. It looks really nice on the White background.

  17. Morning Julia. I am normally not a "cute card" person, but I really like this and the samples you had on yesterday's show. These masks look great and i think texture paste is something else I need to try out.

  18. Love it Julia - great card. Must watch the shows soon

  19. Hi Julia. Such a shame I missed your show, dialysis took it's toll on me. Definitely know lots of cat people, myself included! So I will be looking for these stamps🐱😉 x

    1. Just been looking and can't find the stamps. Any idea who stocks them?? Thanks!

  20. Well I don't know what your shows did to the internet yesterday, but I was watching C&C on my computer no problem, until your shows came on and then it started playing up?! However did get to see a lot though despite all the stopping and starting. I managed to hear one of my emails read out, but not lucky enough to be pulled out of the cup - will try again in Dec when you are on again. Cats are my favourite, so will be looking to buy them individually - the stripey square and circle masks went really well with the images.

  21. Evening Julia
    Love todays card and I am not a cat person, these are changing my mind though, love the masks and they go so well.
