I have been so inspired by the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop already and it's only the first day! Woohoo! Thank you to Janis at Her Peaceful Garden, who hosts this fun hop and makes us appreciate our kitties just a little more than we already do!
After seeing all of the kitty inspiration over at the Hop, I ended up making three more cards today! Here is the first one, and I will post the other two shortly.
There is a 3 Colors challenge at Mod Squad Challenge Blog, and it was actually quite a challenge for me! I normally use a lot of colours on my cards, but their challenge is to use only three colours: black, brown, and cream. The rules are tough - you must also include a tag on your card, and there can be no white, not even for the card base!
I stamped the kitties in black on cream cardstock and then mounted it on black cardstock and then a brown card base. (Sorry I do not know the source of this stamp as I received it in friend mail.) I stamped a sentiment at the top left (Your Next Stamp - Summer Blossom Fluffy Kitten). At the bottom right, I added a tiny die-cut tag (A Jillian Vance Designs - DieLuxe Tiny Tags Die) with a "meow" stamp (The Greeting Farm - Purrfect Cats). Lastly I tied some brown twine (American Crafts) on the tag.
To make sure I didn't stray from the three colours, I stuck to using the black, brown, and cream paper from the Recollections Coffee and Cream cardstock pack:
I would also like to support the following challenges:
