2019 Cat Lovers Hop - Day 6

Hi, everybody! Today is Day 6 of the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop, and sadly it is the final day.  All good things must come to an end, but I had a lot of fun and got inspired to make plenty of kitty cards!   I would like to say THANK YOU to the wonderful Janis at Her Peaceful Garden for hosting this annual event!  I enjoyed all the feline inspiration and getting to know other crafty cat lovers and their kitties!  I'm already looking forward to next year's hop!


Today I dusted off another one of my old wood-mounted rubber stamps: Stampendous Fluffles the Cat - F145 Snowboard Fluffles.  I also tried a new-to-me card style - I used a Stephanie Barnard Sizzix Framelits Stand-ups die set for the first time.  I won this a while back and I don't know why I waited so long to try it because it was easy!  


I coloured the image with my markers and added Diamond Stickles to his pompom and snowflakes.  I die-cut the image with Nellie's Multi-frame Circles (the Stand-ups die set came with a circle die but I wanted a larger circle and a layer).  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Snow Day.  The gorgeous papers are digitals called Woodland Christmas that I won from We Are 3 Digital Shop (thank you!).  I embellished the card with some die-cut snowflakes (various brands; leftovers from last year), punched snowflakes (Recollections punch), and clear gems.  Below are some more photos; the final one shows the card when closed.  I'll definitely be using this die set again - I love how my card turned out!




I would also like to support the following challenges: A Perfect Time to Craft AG UE; A2Z Scrapbooking Holidays 3/5; ABC Christmas V for Velocity UE; Artsystamper Digitals 2 Patterned Paper 2/3; Cardz TV 101 AG 2/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas 461 AG Optional Make Your Own Background UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper October UE; Lost Coast Designs Pets and Stamping UE; Show Us Your Pussycats Furrything Goes UE; The House That Stamps Built Repeat Impressions Anything Goes Challenge ~ O2319; The Outlawz Festive Friday Christmas 4/4; Winter Wonderland Merry and Bright 1/3



Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day - and Happy Hopping!

Now this is a lovely card design - I have made similar looking cards but without the circle being cut into the card - this is so much neater! Lovely Fluffles stamped image and a beautiful colour scheme. The papers are so pretty! xx
