Coffee... Right Meow!

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for a friend who loves coffee!  This fun kitty loves coffee but her cup is empty!  She needs coffee... right meow!


I used several stamps and dies from Your Next Stamp!  The kitty and sentiment are from Coffee Right Meow; the cups are from Warm Christmas Wishes (stamps and dies); the smiley faces on the cups are from Fun Faces; and the wonky rectangle die-cut is Party Window Die Set.

My card began with a Distress Oxide background in pinks and reds and another Distress Oxide background in yellows, oranges, and pinks. I used the watercolour ink-smooshng technique for both. I stamped the cups and faces on the yellow background and then fussy-cut them close to the image.  I die-cut the cups in white and then adhered the fussy-cut cups so they would have a white border.

I die-cut the Party Window from the pink panel, hand-cut a wonky frame in black and adhered on the reverse side, and then adhered the pink panel to the yellow panel.  I coloured the kitty with markers and fussy-cut so I could pop her up on foam tape. Lastly I stamped the fun sentiment and adhered three punched hearts.  This card makes me smile, and I hope it will make my friend smile!  Poor kitty wants coffee immediately and it seems the empty cups are smiling and laughing about it!

My card design was inspired by Sketch 2 at Crafting Vicky:

I don't drink coffee but I did giggle at this card. I like the fussy cut and then back it with matching die. Brilliant. I read the description first on this card. lol. This is such a fun card.
The recipient will never know how much you put into this card with the different oxide colors and then fussy cutting and...basically everything.
Do you ever keep your favorites or like the ones you spent a ton of time on? I do.
Well, I need to go. I have a list of things to do today and I can put a check next to, Babble on KT Fit Kitty blog. I hope you didn't mind :)
Next thing for me scrapbooking my husband's family but I'd rather make cards.
