Sailing Kitty

Hello again! I'm back with another card for the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop!  It's the last day so I want to make the most of it!


I made this card several months ago and sent it to a crafty cat-loving friend.  I just remembered that I hadn't shared it on my blog, so here it is!
 

The stamp is Magenta Sailing Cat, an older wood-mounted rubber stamp.  I heat-embossed the image in two or three different embossing powders (The Artful Stamper), used a corner punch (Stampin' Up), and embellished with clear gems.

I would also like to support the following challenges:
A Perfect Time to Craft AG UE
Cardz TV 101 AG 3/3
Creative Knockouts 321 Embossing Delight (I used heat-embossing) 1/2 C10
Lost Coast Designs Pets and Stamping UE
Show Us Your Pussycats Furrything Goes UE



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

Awwww, just love this adorable image and I treasure this beautiful card, which I was lucky enough to receive in the mail. The embossing is even more spectacular in real life, with a magical shimmer that really adds that extra detail.

Great card. This reminds me of a book I read to my daughter except it was a puppy sailing the boat and not a kitty.

I'm glad kitty has some birdie friends to keep him
company while sailing. Beautiful card.
