Stay Pawsitive Catastrophe Card

I’m back with another Art impressions card for the Cat Lovers Hop and for the Art Impressions Challenge 219: Stamp a Scene.

CH

Since this is a get well card, I just HAD to put Nermal in there… he was given to me when I was in the hospital with a note: ‘Hope you get back to Nermal again real soon!’ How cute was that?!!

Now you can better see this cute little scene of kitty hobbling off carrying his catnip tea the handiest way possible. It cracks me up! Since dad broke his foot the cast is now off, but he is frustrated that the boot didn’t come off this last visit, so this card should cheer him up. I fussy cut the cat and the cup and added a little bit of shadow to the scene.

Then there’s this little cutie-pie on the inside:

Since I didn’t want this to bleed through to the back, I used colored pencils instead of Copics. Glossy accents help the eyes and balloon to look more realistic.

I also like how that Coredinations Black Magic paper sands down to show the inner color! The Paw Print embossing folder goes great with that sentiment!

Materials used:

  • Art Impressions Catastrophy stamp set
  • Spellbinders Butterfly Circles and Heart Circles dies
  • Darice Paws embossing folder
  • Core’dinations Black Magic cardstock (and Sand-It tool)

2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Hop – Decaffeinated Card

20160924_220027

Good morning, peeps and visitors! I’m so glad to finally be ‘plugged in’ again!! I was in rural Indiana with very spotty phone signal and the internet was down the entire time. Of course, what would you expect when the internet provider is OINC Wireless?!! When will it be working again? When pigs fly! LOL! I’ve got a lot going on, but at least I’m back to crafting on a limited basis… just in time to join the Fall Coffee Lovers Hop which started a couple of days ago.

While travelling, I picked up the coffee coaster from Cracker Barrel knowing it could be up-cycled into a great fall colored card.

Unfortunately some of us have been restricted to decaf coffee by our doctors. Poor us! It’s just not the same!! So I made a card for someone else who just had to give up caffeine…

These cats aren’t getting into any trouble on decaf! It’s a real drag going into caffeine withdrawal… Somebody definitely needs a hug!! : )
