Birthday Kitties

You may have noticed that I make a lot of cards featuring kitties LOL.  These kitties are very excited that someone is having a birthday.  The colour combo was inspired by the photo from MFP Speedy TV's Western Decor Challenge (shown below).

To make this card I started by covering a white card base with brown cardstock and then adding a blue and brown polka-dot panel on the left.  I stamped various kitties, party hats, and meow in brown on blue and cream cardstock, fussy-cut, and affixed to the card (I stamped one of the blue cats with a polka-dot background in watermark ink). Next I stamped the sentiment on cream cardstock and punched into a scalloped oval, stamping around the oval with a background stamp.  Lastly I embellished three of the party hats with blue sequins.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Cats (Lost Coast Designs, Stampin' Up - Here, Kitty Kitty, All Night Media), party hats (Stampin' Up! - Here Kitty Kitty), backgrounds (Stampin' Up - Itty Bitty Backgrounds), word (Hero Arts), sentiment (Stampcraft)
  • Ink:  Ancient Page - Chocolate, Versamark Watermark
  • Cardstock:  Stampin' Up and unknown from stash
  • Patterned paper:  ScrapWorks
  • Punch:  Marvy Uchida
  • Sequins:  Dollarama
