You're Purrr-fect! :)


Hi everyone.  Today is the latest challenge for Addicted to CAS.  This challenge is being run by the very talented Shana (Stress Free Stamping with Shana) ... and she picked this fun word:





Prize:  3 digi sets
(please follow the rules to be eligible to win)

____________________


Love this code word ... there are so many ways to interpret.  I decided that I would create my card with new goodies that I received for Christmas - so fun!

I stamped the cat onto gray card stock, colored in his stripes with a darker gray and then fussy-cut.  I sponged more gray around the outside edges to give him some depth.

Keeping up with my plan to add more patterned paper to my cards this year, I added a strip of DP at bottom and popped my cat on top.  I die-cut a word bubble, stamped the sentiment and then ran a marker along the edge to give it more oomph.  I added a double strand and knot of twine and a heart die-cut from the same patterned paper as the strip on the bottom.  Fun and easy card to make! :)

I hope you'll play along with us this challenge ... it's open for two weeks so you have lots of time to join in.

Please check out the ATCAS - New challenge and see the amazing cards from the rest of the DT.

Delightful, as always. Great shading on Cat, and I loved the tiny matching heart that trimmed your pretty twine. Just got my first purchase from Diane, and hope to finish a card for tomorrow with a pre-colored set. I added a bit more shading. Your take on the New was Purr-fect & cute! TFS & Hugs

Hi Loll. I read your subscription faithfully, and my New Year's Resolution is to take the time to make more comments on sites that I like. I like all your CAS designs, but have a real soft spot for grey cats, since I had 2 of them that were part of my family for many years. Beautiful card!
