Little Gray Cat: Simon Says Stamp Challenge

A Super Cute Thank You

 Since Simon Says Stamp has an Anything Goes challenge this week, and I just completed this card, I am going to play along with them.  And boy are there a lot of folks playing this week–over 800!!  That’s a lot of cards and creativity!  The Designer Spotlight cards are pretty awesome! Check them out!

Now, look at this little guy!!  Here’s another cat card I created for a veterinarian thank you.  I think this is the one I will send to our vet since this little tough guy is like my Leo–a little devil, but oh so cute!!

I used Copics COO, C2 & C4, as well as R01, R14 and R17, Memento Tuxedo Black and a light gray ink from Fresh Ink.

The die is from Paper Smootches, as well as the sentiment.

I have used this pop out technique on other cards, and like the effect, though I wasn’t as impressed with how the rectangle turned out.  I like the circle pop out better, which you can see here.

Thanks for checking out my work and make sure to head over to Simon Says Stamp for great inspiration and products!!

Whew, that’s a lot of cats for today!  And a lot of posts–a super lot!   That extra hour we gained really helped me today!

You can never have enough cats…or enough stamps….or enough crafting time!

This little guy will be popping up in the next post, so stop back soon!

4th of July Card Challenge: Patriotic

Well, it looks like I missed the deadline for the Patriotic Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp!

They did get me thinking about a different take on Independence Day, though!  I am currently reading Fahrenheit 451 with some of my students and discussions of censorship and freedom have been the hot topic.

What better way to celebrate your First Amendment rights and the birth of this country than with mind expanding books?

This card is the first in a series of sketches I am putting together.  They will make great gifts for readers next 4th of July!

Stop back to see more!
