Paw-sitively My Purr-sonal Favorite – Cat Card

Hello and welcome back to the mid-way point of the Cat Lovers Hop!

There is a super special surprise with this post, so be sure to read all the way to the end!

This card features the ever-so-fun Essentials by Ellen Leading Ladies stamps designed by Brandi Kincaid – especially Cat Lady.

Fun, right?! After stamping, coloring and fussy-cutting, I used a Viva Perlen-Pen to make the ice cream look realistic and some Nuvo drops for the Cherry…

And, I stamped up an envelope to match:


  • Essentials by Ellen Leading Ladies: Cat Lady & Celebration Lady
  • Spellbinders Lounge Around, French Frills (for table base), and 5×7 Elegant Labels 4 dies
  • Fine Touch metallic poster board – blue
  • Recollections 110# cardstock – white; 65# cardstock white & brown
  • K & Co SW Spring Blossom Seed Packet Die Cut Cardstock packaging
  • Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black & Desert Sand (env.) dye inks
  • Brutus Monroe Alabaster pigment ink
  • Tombow Markers: 28, 31, 32, 50, 52, 60, 67, 70, 71, 91, 92, 96
  • Shuttle Art gel pens
  • Pebbles, Inc. Pearlescent Chalks Jewel Tones
  • Viva Perlen Pen – Ice White
  • Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops Silver Lining & Gloss Red Berry
