Oh My Whiskers Peeking Cats Card

Oh, my whiskers!

  

Here’s a pawsome trio for the Cat Lovers Hop

These Peeking Cats are so stinkin’ cute!! And I just love the Oh my whiskers! sentiment! If you happen to like them as much as I do, be sure and read to the end as there’s a special announcement! (Ok, I know you’re going to skip the rest of the pics and go straight to the end of this post now. lol!)

Now, here’s a question for you… I couldn’t decide if I liked just adding the whiskers to the top of the ‘i’ or if I should add them to the bottom too. I leaned toward just the top, but after I was done, I put them on the bottom too… Which one do you prefer?

After coloring the eyes, I filled them in with Glossy Accents… they look almost real in person!

Materials used:

  • Frantic Stamper Peeking Cats dies
  • Frantic Stamper Cat Sentiments stamps
  • My Minds Eye Meow 6×6 pad
  • Core’dinations cardstock: black & white
  • Tsukineko Versamark link
  • Inkadinkado black embossing powder
  • Copic markers: R32, RV02, Y17, YG61,63

  • Kuretake Wink of Luna – gold
  • Ranger Inkssentials Glossy Accents
  • Recollections faux pearls (colored with Copics to match the MME Meow cardstock)

Now, for what you’ve been waiting for….

Special announcement: Fran at the Frantic Stamper (HERE) has kindly gone to the trouble to offer you Cat Lovers Hoppers a special discount if you but the both the stamp and die I used together:

This will give you a 25% ($3.75) discount on the stamp. She only has 12 of the stamp in stock right now….. and no more coming for at least a month, so you will want to hurry and get your order in!  This offer is only good while supplies last, and the offer ends on November 12017. Check out her other sales while you’re there! She carries hard-to-find brands in addition to her own. Have fun!!

Thank you Fran!!! (And thanks for the honor of putting this card on your product pages!)

Dandelion Wishes – Cat Lovers Hop

Popping back in with…. you guessed it! Another kitty card! >^.^<

20151025_210043aW

This Wild Rose Studio stamp is just TOO cute, don’t you think? I love how those Crystal Ice Ice Stickles shine!! Of course I know an aunt of mine who would not be happy if she had dandelions that big in her yard! (I know you’re reading this and giggling, Aunt M! wink-wink)

I had one small problem when I went to put it on the card… the die was a smidge too big! So I snipped off the ‘finials’ and put some pearls on and if I hadn’t’ve told you, you probably wouldn’t’ve noticed, would you? : )

20151015_222200aW

Those Wild Rose Studios stamps often remind me of the cute Anri wood carvings like the one of the sweet girl with her kitty:

Art Impressions these cute little kitties so that they can be put together front and back. I cut under their paws before putting them together so they would stack better.

For today’s funnies, I thought I’d give a nod to those who are both SciFi & Cat Lovers:

1026Spock   1026LLP

Anyone remember Data’s genius ‘Ode to Spot’?

Felis Catus -is your taxonomic nomenclature

An endothermic quadruped, carniverous by nature?

Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses

Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your sub-vocal oscillations –

A singular development of cat communications

That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection

For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents –

You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.

And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,

It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

Oh, Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display

Denote a fairly well developed cognitive array.

And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend…

I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend!

DrWhoWithCats did a great job of photoshopping T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats into River Song’s hand! Although I’m fonder of the older cover – probably because they’re a cool stack of cats in hats:

1026OldPossumsBook1

Ok, I’ve rambled on so much that most of you now wish you had a time machine to go back and recapture the 5 minutes of your life that you just lost with this nonsense! I’ll probably be back later today with a second card.

Live long and pawspurr!

Allons-y!
