Chocolate Keeps You Safe! Fun Fat Cat Card

Hello again! I’m back with a humorous card for the Cat Lovers Hop.

A few months back our whole family went on a diet and each successfully shed scores of pounds. However, my folks recently hit a plateau. To congratulate them on their accomplishment, and encourage them to keep up the good work with some humor, I send them this fun card:

I think these two cats are safe, don’t you?!! I love how shiny the Brilliance ink is when stamping with it! To help it stand out, I just lightly colored the kitties with some chalks:

The Liquid Pearls make the chocolate look almost edible (if slightly melted)… Gotta love those fun Technique Tuesday Sassy sentiments! : )

Of course, I was so excited to send it to them, I was already writing in it when I remembered to take a pic… just ignore my scribbling (thx)!

I love that stamped sentiment: Did you ever notice there are no recipes for leftover chocolate?! So true! (and you notice the chocolate is gone except for the wrapper and a couple of crumbs)

On the back, there’s a little pocket for a gift card for them to get some new ‘skinny’ clothes:


  • Penny Black: 9 Lives stamp set
  • Technique Tuesday: Sassy Bday & Sassy Hangry
  • Spellbinders: Labels 40 Decorative Accents dies
  • Justrite dies: Filigree Corners
  • Recollections white cardstock
  • Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black & Rich Cocoa dye inks
  • Tsukineko Brilliance Coffee Bean & Pearlescent Rust pigment inks
  • Art Performance markers
  • Pebbles, Inc. Pearlescent Chalks – Jewel Tones
  • Ranger Liquid Pearls: Dark Chocolate
  • Ranger Stickles: Joyful

  3. Wow, that chocolate is so realistic I almost licked the computer screen…haha! How thoughtful of you to send this to your family. They’re going to laugh when they see it ..which is almost as fun as the gift card you enclosed! These goodies are nearly as fabulous as an actual kitty cat would be!

  4. Oh, D.Ann, I’m laughing myself silly over the front sentiment on this card with the 2 fat kitty cat(s)! Marvelous creation and I happen to know why there are no recipes for “left-over chocolate.” (smug smile)

  5. Those fat chocolate-loving kitty cat(s) are so cute. How do you use “Kitty Cat” when there are two of them????? (sigh) Too much brain power required to figure it out!! lol…. What a lovely and fun way to celebrate the weight loss of your loved ones. Your card is adorable. I love the liquid pearls and glitter. Oh, and that ink is amazingly brilliant. Looks great with the chalking. Beautiful work, as always!!
    Thanks so much for being a part of the 2018 Cat Lovers Hop!!!

  8. Not a big Pinterst user but I think I have pinned your Art Impressions Kitten Vanity card. It says it was saved to my Pinterest Likes. Does that mean I pinned it? I think my name over there is Kitty FitKitty or something like that. Not a social media person but I love your giveaway!!!!

  9. Love, love, love your card! I think it is so awesome and it made me laugh! I’ve lost about 95 lbs. over the last year and a half, so it really touched me. I love the sentiments especially and the Penny Black kitty cats are always special. I have so many of her images, because I really love that cat. Our last cat “Boo” was originally 23 lbs. and always reminded me of the Penny Black kitty cat.
    Great card and design!

    Thanks so much for being a part of the 2018 Cat Lovers Hop!!!
