Three Kitty Cards

Hi, everybody! Today is Day 4 of the Cat Lovers Hop! Thank you to Janis at Her Peaceful Garden for hosting this fun event! I've been enjoying the hop and seeing everyone's kitty cards and projects! There's only one more day left so I hope you can join the fun before it's over!  I have three cards to share today!


Card #1
First up is a Halloween card.  It measures 4" x 6" so it's a bit larger than my usual A2 card size. The gorgeous image was included in this month's free collage sheet from Gecko Galz as part of their monthly newsletter. You can sign up for their newsletter here (see left-hand sidebar). I printed the image on photo paper and mounted it on a journal card that I cut from DCWV Halloween Night 12x12 paper pad. I heat-embossed the Newton's Nook sentiment in white on a black scrap. I added a die-cut cat and bat (Frantic Stamper) and a charm from my stash.


Challenges
Gecko Galz Customer Challenge Fall into Autumn
The Paper Girls Halloween 3/3


Card #2
My second card was made awhile ago but I haven't posted it on my blog until now. I found this kitty picture in a magazine and I thought it looked so much like our Snowie that I had to cut it out and make a card! The background is stamped with Stampin' Up French Script in SU Going Gray ink. I added a rose and some floral corners from my stash.


Challenges
Clique Kits AG 2/3


Card #3
My final card features Stampendous Fluffles Gift, an older wood-mounted stamp that is now out of production. I coloured the image with watercolour markers. The background is stamped repeatedly with a Kelly Panacci gift stamp and Penny Black sentiment. I added a copper charm tied with orange twine.



Challenges
Pixie's Snippet Playground All cardstock from my snippets box 1E
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 3/5
Word Art Wednesday AG uplifting Sentiment wk1 2/5

Thank you for looking at my cards!  Wishing you a joyful day!

A really super post Kitty with three lovely cards, the cat ones are both so sweet but my eyes are really drawn to the Halloween card, it's so very striking with the monochromatic image.

Love your vintage Halloween card with the added cat die cut and fun sentiment, and the sweet little Fluffles design. I can't believe I never added any Fluffles stamps to my craft stash through all these years!

All 3 cards look amazing....I really love the vintage image on the first, so cute!

These three cards are very different one by the others, but all so impressive and beautiful! The first one is gorgous with its vintage style and the lovely image! My favourite is the second one with that "Snowy look-alike", so sweet and feminine with the rose!! And the last one looks so fun!! :D Love the little gift charm!
Hugs!

These are just wonderful, Kitty!!! I will limit my comments right here to the top one because you have the others on your Flickr for me to look at. :)

I am totally loving the genius way you mounted the image printed on photo paper on the journaling card. Love the sentiment strip and die cuts and even the creepy spider charm! EEK! Beautifully composed card!!
