T-I-double g-Rrr… Wobble Tigger Easel Card! Hoo-hoo!

Welcome to my final post for the 2018 Cat Lovers Hop! Yes, your inboxes will finally get a break from this cat card blitz. >^.^< Wohoo! We’ve surpassed our previous record and have over 200 entries in the hop already this year and there’s still half a day to go!!

This card sums up my feelings about the Cat Lovers Hop pretty well!

For a change, I’m going to start with the back of the card:

Knowing me, I’ll probably write a few funny lines back here like, “I wonder where I put the car keys?” or “I wonder where I left my glasses?” : )

When you open it up, it becomes a stand-up card easel-y (I just HAD to put the pun in!) using that pretty easel base by Anna Griffin, :

To get the leaves filled out with some depth and texture, I die cut the ornate frame and then embossed it into some green cardstock, too. I fussy cut along the outside, cutting straight across the top where the easel die would be attached. Then I affixed the die-cut piece over it and colored it up with chalks.

To hold the card in place, I put some felt cobblestones on the path. Tah-dah!

I was going to color Tigger, but thought it might be easier to just cut out the parts I would need in the corresponding colors and emboss the background for his stripes. It involved a little bit of fussy cutting but looks grrreat (oops! wrong tiger!).

Here he is bobbing around in all his glory on that tail that’s made out of springs… Bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!:

Well, that brings the 2018 Cat Lovers Hop to a close – for me, anyway…. this cat’s tuckered out! Don’t forget to get your comments in for all of the giveaways before 11:59pm Sunday, October 27, 2018. For those of you counting the Spellbinders dies used, this completes my projects (Hint: there were non used on this card. lol!) I had someone ask if it was dies or sets, so I’ll clarify: It’s the number of different SETS. You can tell them apart by their names! Please be sure to look at my actual blog posts and not your email versions as I had to update a couple. Sorry.

TTFN (for those who don’t know, that’s Ta-Ta For Now from Tigger (and me))

Rosy Congratulations Card

Hello again!

One of my friends requested a card to wish a young lady well on her graduation, so I made two cards for her to choose from and thought you might like to see them. The first was a pretty rosy card done with Anna Griffin paper, dies and stamps:


I’m pretty sure those stamps are the first ones I got when I got back into papercrafting. I love the timeless elegance of Anna Griffin’s designs! I recently received a gift card to HSN and was tickled pink to finally get a set of her dies… Just look at the gorgeous detail of that die on the shimmery gold vellum:


I didn’t want my friend to have to pay extra postage for a raised element (our post office is really strict), so rather than use faux pearls, I snipped a couple of the flowers from the decorative trim and colored them with my Tombow marker to ‘anchor’ the sentiment.

After the next post, I’ll tell you which of the two my friend chose…. stay tuned! : )
