It’s “Hug your Cat Day” and I am celebrating by not only hugging my fur-baby cat, Phoebe but also sharing a simple card! Before I give you the details of how I made my project, here’s a photo of my cat. Isn’t she adorable?! I love her so much!
For my card today, I am showcasing the Newton Rides West stamp set, Hills and Grass Stencil and the background scene is a stamp set by The Greetery called Fresh Air.
I stamped the cat image and colored him in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers. I fussy-cut the image using my precision snips.
I cut some white stamping card by Crafter’s Companion measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and adhered this piece on an A2 size card base. I stamped the window first with Spectrum Noir Finesse Alcohol Proof ink in Rustic Brown. The shutters were stamped using SN quick dry ink in Oasis and SN Rustic Brown ink. The brick pattern was first stamped using SN Quick Dry Ink in Chinese Red and layered with SN Quick Dry Ink in Bordeaux.
I stamped the curtain image with SN Quick Dry Dye Ink in Smoked Plume and die-cut using the coordinating die. Using the light gray ink made the curtain look “white”. I adhered the curtain and the cat with some liquid glue.
To ground my scene, I used the Hills & Grass stencil and SN Quick Dry Ink in Grasshopper.
To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment “Hello there” with SN Quick Dry Ink in Black. This is probably one of the fastest card’s I’ve ever made but I love how this turned out!
In case you’re wondering, Phoebe gets a lot of LOVE from me everyday! I hope I gave you some inspiration to color and do stamping today. The supplies I use are listed and linked below. Happy Hug your Cat day!
