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

Simply Papercraft

Today is my first challenge with the Simply Papercraft Design Team, a fabulous papercrafting Challenge blog.

I have made a card using a digital image from Rosey Hearts called Spring Witch.

Such a cute image, but I thought she needed a lovely little black cat! 🙂  The kitty image comes from the Stampin’ Up! set called You Little Furball.  And the patterned papers are also retired Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers.  The gorgeous ribbon (which I was given as part of my Mother’s Day present!! Lucky me 🙂  ) is lovely and shimmery and shiny but doesn’t show up well in the photo.

Make sure you pop in and check out what the rest of the Design Team have created, and do share your own creations with us too, at Simply Papercraft.
Happy stamping!
