For our projects today, the design team is showcasing the Caffeinated stamp set.  Here’s what it looks like:

I love to color!  Coloring is very therapeutic for me and I normally do it while listening to music or while waiting for my laundry to finish, or even waiting for my instant pot meal to finish cooking, haha!

I stamped the image on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with some Copic markers.  I wanted to use some intense colors so I mostly used dark Copic markers.  I altered the image a little bit to make it look like a pyramid of cats.  I fussy-cut the image and set it aside.

On an A2 size piece of Bristol smooth white card stock, I inked up my background with some Squeezed Lemonade and Dried Marigold distress oxide inks with the Sunscape Stencil.

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment on the background and adhered this piece to an A2 size card base.  I was soooo bummed that I smeared the sentiment a little.  I almost threw out this card out of frustration but I spent so much time altering and coloring the image so I decided to stick with it.  I also added the hearts from the Heart Sprinkles Embellishment by Kat Scrappiness.  Here’s a little closer look:

I don’t know about you but coffee and kitty?  They are my jam! haha!  I especially love kittens because they have so much energy and they can basically play all day.  I wish I have about 10 of them running around!

  1. Wow! The sunshine background is so uplifting along with the bright colors of all the cups. I like how each kitty appears to be from one litter. Also, the hearts give the card warmth and caring toward the recipient.

  3. This is a stunning card! I didn’t even notice the slight smudge but I know how you feel! I hate it when that happens! The pyramid of kitties and mugs is colored beautifully and I can’t believe how awesome you did on the fussy cutting! And I love the sun rays behind them! So pretty!

  6. Your kitty card is fun and colorful. Your coloring is spectacular. I love kittens too. I would have a couple more but my senior kitty, Tiger, would have something to say about that. This is his house. We’re lucky we get to live in it!!
