Geometrics Fancy Cats Cards

The time has come for my final post of the Cat Lovers Hop. Wahhh! But, Wahoo-kachoo! We just passed our peak number of 149 entries from last year!!

  

It has been a week of the highest quality with the 4c’s … Cats, Coffee, Crafting & Chocolate. We make clarity, cut, color and carat jealous! Lol! (BTW: If you want some better chuckles, be sure to read to the very end!)

I’m closing with this pair of elegant and fun cards:

(Special thanks to my aunt for making that gorgeous cross-stitched kitty and orchid!)

I love how well that embossing folder goes with the geometric ‘ball’, don’t you?!

And on the inside are these cute bookmarks:

Since I cut the cats as a pair, it was easy to mix & match the pieces for a second card:

For the bookmark on this one, I cut a second one out of the god cardstock, but put the paper in reverse and glued them together so both the front and back are gold.

Which do YOU prefer? I kind of lean toward the black background.

Okay, it’s time for the final hint for my Blog Candy Giveaway games from THIS post.  Although you can only count it once, this archaic four-letter-word, meaning ‘a dainty or choice food, a delicacy’ can be found 6 times in the puzzle. Still having trouble? No worries, you will still get entries for the Bonus questions, whether or not you get the answers to #1 and #2 correct. Have fun!

Also: if any of you early birds have found some words you missed with the clues the past few posts and want to change your answer to #1, for the early bird may get the worm, but the late cat gets both. Lol! This morning I received the first correct answer to #1 and #3. Many of you mamaged to get #2 already. If anyone wants to change their answers, you still have time to resubmit a revised answer. : ) You have until 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time, Sunday, October 29, 2017 to finish up and submit your final answers via e-mail. Don’t forget to check back on Monday, October 30, 2017 – hopefully, before noon PACIFIC time for my winners and answers post.

Note: If Potential Tropical Cyclone 18 (likely to be named Tropical Storm Philippe) continues as predicted, we will have winds and up to 8″ of rain tonight and tomorrow. This usually wouldn’t be a problem, but coming on the heels of Irma, who knows what the power lines here will do. (friends just a couple of miles from me were out of electric a whole week (which sounds like nothing compared to the Keys and Caribbean).) Anyway, if my post happens to be late, you’ll know why. Best way not to miss it: subscribe to follow my blog!

It’s been a wonderful hop and my mind is already spinning with ideas for next year’s hop. (No hard puzzles, I promise!) Hopefully I’ll see you all back here way before then. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the funnies below!

Warm, furry hugs,

~D.Ann

Well, you saw that I started out as a crazy cat kid and then went on to be a wild cat teen… here I am today:

Actually – that’s our hop host Janis with her clowder of 18… I just Photoshopped my Bitmoji avatar in the picture. Lol!

I thought I’d close with a few fun things I recently found while surfing the net:

How do we know the earth is round?

Newton’s Nook Kissing Kitties Slider Card Lights Up with Chibitronics

Hooray! The day has finally arrived for the annual Cat Lovers Hop! I’ve been excitedly bouncing around like Tigger the past couple of days! I know we all look forward to this annual hop and I think it’s appropriate to start off with a special thanks to Janis over at HerPeacefulGarden for all the hard work she puts into this special event! Let’s give her a big round of aPAWs!! Be sure to check out her link up page (HERE) for all the details and for the aMEOWzing list of sponsors she lined up!

If you’ve been watching on Instagram you know I have a lot of fun stuff in store for you… Thankfully, I’ve had a year to prepare! On my blog, there will be cards, calendars, home decor, jewelry, a guest designer, sci-fi cats, games, giggles and more – all featuring those dear, precious critters we all love… cats! I’m working on a giveaway, too, so you’ll want to stay tuned for that.

I’m going to start off with my first ever light-up card. It’s a slider with an adorable pair of kissing kitties anniversary card made with stamps from hop sponsor Newton’s Nook:

When you pull on the heart tab, the romantic kitty slides over to plant a smooch on his sweetie – at which point the heart lights up and the words oh-la-la! are revealed!

Here’s a video of it in action (roll your mouse over the picture and click the white arrow):

Confession: I cannot believe that I engineered the placement of wiring for the light and the slider on the inside just so, but I was so excited to try it, I turned it over and sealed it up, found out it worked and THEN reached for my camera. DUM-DUM want GUM-GUM?! lol! Guess you’ll have to wait a while until I do another one to see the inner workings. Sorry!

Wondering where I got that aMEWsing beret? It came from the Newton Dreams of Paris set… I just fussy cut it off that kitty (who’s not looking in the right direction for this kiss), snipped the lines on both sides of his ear and it tucked perfectly around.

Here’s a better pic of the card with the heart lit up from the smooch:

It just makes MY heart go pitter-patter! … I’ve done it so many times, I hope I haven’t used up the battery before my recipients get to play with it!

Welcome! Today I have a sweet set of 4 cards I did with the technique from My Favorite Things’ Camp Create Day 2: Remarkable Resist.

MFT Camp Create Day 1: Wonderful Watercolor – Rainbow Galaxy Background

Hello and welcome! It’s that time of year again… Another summer at My Favorite Things’ Camp Create!

Day one of camp showed a marvelous watercolor rainbow galaxy background that I just HAD to try! While I was at it, I decided to do two in case one didn’t turn out. I was really quite worried I’d get mud by adding the black, but they both turned out ok! In spite of the sparkle, it’s not a girly card and would do for a guy, too.

You can find the easy to follow instructions on how to do the watercolor background HERE. I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors since I don’t have the Prima watercolors she used. I love the vibrant colors!

You may be wondering how I got the longer die-cut rectangles for the inside writing space:

You take your cutting plate and put the edge before the final edge of the die. After cutting, line up the two sides and again place the edge before the final edge of the die as shown in the right-hand part of the picture. Depending on how the pattern goes, you can get it half-again longer (like the left hand side of the picture above) or more.

I really wanted this galaxy to tinkle and added lots of sparkly accents that you can see in the materials list below. It’s got oodles of 3d texture. The sparkle is kind of hard to capture on camera – even this quick video doesn’t do it justice:

For completing this, I’ve earned my first Camp Create Badge:

           Note: if you collect all 5 badges, you can be entered for a nice prize… just sayin’! : )

Materials Used:

  • My Favorite Things: Friends Like Us stamp set
  • My Favorite Things: Doubly Amazing and Pop-Up Bday (cut off) Die-namics
  • Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles and Romantic Rectangles 2
  • Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors 20, 31, 32, 40, 52, 64, 139
  • Canson Cold Press Watercolor Paper
  • Core’dinations cardstock: black & white
  • My Studio White Acrylic Craft Paint
  • Martha Stewart Crafts Titanium Metallic Acrylic Craft Paint
  • Ranger Stickles: Black Diamond, Glisten, Icicle
  • Imagine Crafts IrRESISTible Pico embellishers: copper
  • Tonic Studios Nuvo Glitter Accents: Fresh Snowfall
  • Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue
  • Tombow Xtreme adhesive runner

I hope to be back soon with another project from this fun skills camp!

Altenew Creative Watercolor Media Class – Lesson 3

Well, after a roaring start, I wasn’t able to keep up the pace. : ) But I’m glad to be back today with a card I made for Lesson 3 of Altenew’s Creative Watercolor Media Class, taught by the ever cheerful and talented Laura Bassen (aka Laurafadora). She used the Altenew crisp dye ink pads to paint her cute card blending a light and dark shade of each color.

I liked my last card (the 3d lotus) so much, I thought I’d do the same layout but all on one layer this time, using the same color scheme from the May 2017 Inspiration Challenge in my foreground:

I also decided that since this would involve some masking and using the MISTI stamping tool, I should take advantage of the set up time and do 3 additional cards. The MISTI makes it easy to set up a production line:

I also wanted to try stamping in the darker color of what I’d be painting for a no-line look. Then I thought while I was at it, I would compare papers. Here they are, all ready to go…

Upper L: Distress Watercolor Cardstock; Upper R: Strathmore mixed media 90#;       Lower l: Canson cold press Watercolor; Lower L: Canson L’Aquarelle Hot Pressed

Here’s how they turned out:

I learned why it’s easier to watercolor when you heat emboss the outline… the water and color stays in the lines! : ) I was surprised that the lines, although dry, absorbed the water from the fill-in and bled out, blurring the images. I can only imagine if I’d’ve used black to stamp the outlines! The Mixed Media paper was the worst at this although it said for wet media.

I selected the best one (Ranger Watercolor Cardstock) and decided to add some sunshine by watercoloring the white space in all yellow to make the flowers pop (and to see if it helped hide the bleeding). I think it turned out ok. I’ll set the others aside and try to do something with them later on.

Supplies used:

  • Altenew Lotus tamp and die sets
  • Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set (sentiment)
  • Tsukineko Versamark Ink
  • Inkadinkado embossing powder: Linen White
  • Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Coral Berry & Frosty Pink
  • Tsukineko Memento  dye inks: Bamboo Leaves, Dandelion & Pear Tart
  • Tsukineko Brilliance Pigment Ink: Pearlescent Beige (for the pistil)
  • Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock
  • Here were the other three contenders, :
    • Canson Cold Press Watercolor paper 140#
    • Canson L’Aquarelle Hot Pressed Watercolor paper 140#
    • Strathmore Mixed media 90#
  • Core’dinations pink cardstock
  • Simply Defined 5×7 Bright White card base 200#
  • Tombow Xtreme adhesive (great for watercolor – no warping!)

I am entering this in the following galleries and challenges:

Well, I’m halfway through the class and having a blast. I’ll be back when I can with the next card.

Seriously Thankful Anniversary Card

Hello, again! I’m back with another anniversary card (if you missed the first one, you’re going to want to scroll back one post!!), a super sweet one this time:

20161226_082632

Awww! I love the little fox curled in his mom’s tail!! I love how that Spellbinders die both embosses and de-bosses!

I added some sparkle to their fur coats and the butterfly…

20161226_082938

Do you know why I especially love that ‘seriously’ die from DCAM? The dot on the ‘i’ is attached! Thank you DCAM!! I usually lose the dots from other die sets when they’re separate, plus they’re so futzy to glue down.

20161226_082712

Yes, as you can tell from the inside, this was for my folks’ anniversary party. We usually go out for a steak dinner, but since we’ve all been sick and are still recuperating, I picked up some of their favorite breakfast items from Cracker Barrel and IHOP and surprised them with a cozy brunch instead.

20161226_082632

Supplies used:

  • Die Cuts & More (DCAM) ‘seriously’ word die
  • Spellbinders Imperial Square Die

Cat Lovers & Cat’s Pajamas Hops – Fall Willow Swing Card + Black Coffee Interview + Blog Candy

Whether you’re new or visiting for the first time, Welcome! I’m excited to show you today’s post for the Cat Lovers Hop, which also happens to be for The Cat’s Pajamas Winter Hop, too! If you manage to hang in til the end of the post, there might be blog candy, too!

2016 Cat Lovers Hop 20161025_tcp

Before I begin, I have a question for you:

Have you had your Black Coffee and Sugar fix for today?

No, I’m not confused. I know the Coffee Lovers Hop is over. : ) For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, allow me to introduce you to Elaine Chong‘s virtual pet, Black Coffee, and her little friend, Sugar:

20161017_innertreasureart1

Elaine and Black Coffee have a great sense of humor as you’ll notice if you scroll through their Instagram account HERE. I thought we’d briefly interview them both today. Let’s start with a couple of quick questions for Black Coffee:

  • What crafts have you tried your paws at or would like to try?
    • I have tried painting, knitting, cooking and I am really good at bathing the worms!
      • It cracks me every time I see you doing that last one… Our readers can see your skills at it HERE. I think that pond is going to be in today’s card!
  • What is your favorite thing to do with paper?
    • I like to make marks on them, tear them apart and sometimes eat them when they look yummy!

And, now, a couple of questions for Elaine:

  • Do you have any real cats?
    • Not at the moment but when I was a kid, my family used to have quite a number of them and they were one of my major playmates.
    • By the way, our first cat was a black cat
  • Do you sell your drawings? Where can we find them?
    • Currently I am not selling my drawings.
  • Have you ever thought about publishing a Black Coffee book?
    • Yes, I have been thinking of publishing a Black Coffee book and hopefully next year.
      • I think that would be a delight!

20161017_innertreasureart2

Thank you both for taking the time to join us for the Cat Lovers Hop (and Sugar, too!)!!

In honor of Black Coffee’s visit today and her love of ‘bathing the worms’ in a pond, I made this card of a weeping willow tree dressed in autumn yello and a fun pair of furry friends on a swing at sunset (It HAS to be sunset… my cats were always sleeping at sunrise. lol!):

20161025_112254

The top section is on acetate… Here’s what the reverse looks like inside:

20161025_112343

Hmmm… Maybe Black Coffee will end up with a canine friend like Sprinkle the cat has!

Note: when embossing on acetate, heat your heat gun up well before bringing it over to the acetate and move quickly so as not to warp the acetate too much!

The background was done with Ken Oliver’s Color Bursts. I tried something new and used them as straight watercolors. I know, it’s hard not to go for the thrill of watching those powders BURST to life on a page, but this effect turns out beautifully in a different way. It’s amazing how little powder is needed!

20161025_112106  20161025_112140

Once I painted the background, I added some of the Liquid Metals on top for an amazing shimmer effect… it almost looks light sunlight glistening on the water!:

20161025_112445

I put the sentiment as if it were carved on the tree – as some sweethearts are wont to do. It’s hidden when the top is closed over it.

20161025_112418

See the CAT tails?!! Another nod to the hop and to Black Coffee’s favorite pond! I love weeping willow trees — not to be confused with pussy willow trees, that I also love!

20161025_112515

You can even take Pussy Willow buds and made some cute cats! : )
