Cuddle Cat


A special thank you and credit go to Suze at Stamp in Style and Cut it Cute who designed and then was generous enough to give me this free digi image. Turned out to be my first (came right before 4 others arrived today). So I am trying a couple of new techniques....one being using a digi image and the second was trying to mask, although I sense I screwed this one up....still turned out cute, I think, but I am pretty sure I did not mask properly...need to research this one instead if just running off and trying it by myself...lol..

Anyway, the design of the card was inspired by the sketch at Papertake Weekly. I used K&Company paper and Cooredinations, which I embossed and then sanded. I colored my image with shimmer chalks using a dove blender. Added a pearl, some stickles, and a couple of bows.


Card was inspired by all of the following challenges:


A Spoon Full of Sugar - distress, pearl, glitter



Crafty Creations - cut it out and pop it up

Just Buggin' - dry embossing

Crafty Ann's - new product


C.R.A.F.T. - ribbons and sparkle

Crazy 4 - 3 different textures

Pile it On - Lucky Me (green)


Pollycraft - distressing

Practical Scrappers - chalks and ink

Thanks for taking a peek at Suze's Cuddle Cat.

  5. Kim, your first use of a digi stamp on a card is fab. It will soon be a blur as no doubt you'll get addicted to them like most of us that try them.

    Thank you for taking the time to enter this into the Crafty Ann's Challenge this fortnight. I was lucky enough to be a Guest Designer this month so I am looking at all the lovely creations and seeing how others interpreted the challenge.

    ENJOY your time as a Guest Designer.

    Take care and my best wishes, Kym xxx
