The Cat's Meow

Wow, it's been a while since I posted anything. My apologies. The second half of the year is always busy for me. It's harder to find time for my stamping. I'll try to post as often as I can. Here's a card I made from a sketch. It's been so long, I don't remember which blog I saw the sketch from. My kids love cats, but we can't have one because a couple of us are allergic to cats. The image is from the Pink Cat Studio. I colored it in with my Stampin' Up markers. I added a few skittles and it was done. Here's a close-up of her face. Isn't she pretty!
Thanks for stopping by!

Orange you cute!

Isn't she cute? I didn't like the color orange growing up. But, as a paper-crafter, orange has really grown on me. I made this card with my daughter's birthday in mind. She's pretty girly. I went a little crazy with the hair and I don't like how it turned out. I do like the rest of the card. I paper-pieced the hat, gift, and bag. I wasn't sure how to make the bag look 3-D. Then, I had an epiphany. I stamped and colored the image on white cardstock. I cut out just the square portion of the bag (left off the handle). Then, I stamped the bag onto a piece of acetate and cut it out. I glued the paper piece onto the acetate and taped it to my girl image. This makes it look like she's actually holding the handle of the bag.
The image is from Pink Cat Studio. The sentiment and DSP is from Stampin' Up.
