Punch Art Kitty

I had a little bit of fun this afternoon, making this cute kitty and designing a card for him to go on.

We do love our four legged friends in this family, we have four beautiful cats (who live inside) and two rabbits (who live outside).  I had a little helper while I was making this card today, so if you see any black hairs they will be our little black cat’s contribution.  She does so love helping me craft, usually sitting on me or whatever I am making at the time and purring very loudly!
I didn’t think the kitty on my card would look as good all black though, so I did this one in similar colours to one of our other gorgeous cats, Biff.  Here is a photo, do you think it looks like him? 🙂


Anyway, the background papers are from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack, and I have used some of the Ovals Collection Framelits to create a frame for kitty to sit inside.  For kitty I have used the following punches:  1 3/4inch Circle Punch for the body, Flower Medallion Punch for the ears, Bow Builder Punch, trimmed with paper snips for the tail, Owl Builder Punch for the eyes and nose, and a retired punch (can’t remember the name of it, sorry) for those cute little paws.  And then just used a Black Marker to add some detail.
The words come from You Little Furball stamp set.

I am entering this card in the current Send A Smile 4 Kids Animal Cards Challenge.

Happy stamping

Owly Thanks

I’m not entirely sure that “Owly” is a word, but you get the idea!  Hopefully all of the recipients of these little thank you cards have received them by now, so it’s ok to post them here.

I love this gorgeous Owl punch but it has been very much neglected.  So he got a work out making some thank you cards, and while I was at it, I thought I would make a book mark for my son, who always has numerous books on the go at once, so we can never have too many book marks in our house!

Happy stamping!

Cute Caterpillar

Just a short post today, but I wanted to share the cute little punch art caterpillar. Or is he a worm – perhaps a book worm 🙂

I have been incredibly busy just recently, with a lot of cards and gift tags going out to various charities for fundraising events.  I have one more lot of these to get done, but only a small one so that should be done this week.
I then have to focus on getting some things done for a display that I will be having at the Brighton Library in November.  So busy times for me, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been crafting, just not doing much blogging.  I will do my best to keep you up to date though.
Happy stamping!
