Falloween Cat



It's Thursday night pop pickers and that can only mean Top of the Pops... how many of us of a certain age (in the UK) will remember that eh? But in my case it means arse to the wire to get my Designed 2 Delight freebie made into a card. It has been coloured for days but unfortunately real life tends to get in the way of cardmaking and for some reason husbands need to be fed you know, I mean what's that all about?

Anyhoo, as I do not do Halloween I decided to make this likkle puddy cat into a card for a friend who has got a card Tink who is a proper fluffy ginger tom, thus he was the inspiration for colouring the cat in the gorgeous shades of Pumpkin and Spice with my Promarkers.

I have used a Kraft base, used the funky square paper from Dovecraft Animal antics pad from their First Edition range. The brown squared paper is a magazine freebie which I made a disasterous attempt at stamping in white ink on and has been consigned to my scraps box. This is matted onto white card from the 'scraps of white card box'. I have used a Fiskars punch to make use of some leftover Kraft strips behind the puddy cat and he has been mounted onto 3d foam.

I had used the latest sketch from Cutie Sunday for the layout so added some flowers in the relevant places made from Prima Daisies and Wild Orchid Cherry Blossoms with some gold Stickles in the middles. Last but not least the sentiment from my stash has been matted onto some brown card and raised up on 3d foam.


Materials Used in this card are as follows:-

Card Size – 6” Square
Image – Falloween Cat by Designed 2 Delight
Sketch – Cutie Sunday
Paper – Dovecraft for main square paper and all other papers and cardstock are from scraps.
Sentiment – from stash
Embellishments – prima Daisies, Wild Orchid Cherry Blossoms, Stickles glitter glue
Tools – Scissors, 3d foam, Fiskars Treading water Punch, Nestabilities Die
Techniques – Distressing with small inkpad, punching, die cutting

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-

Hi Mandy

A brilliant snippet make. Beautiful, bright and a fab layout.

Great use of your snippets.

I am sure your mountain must be reducing by now .. .. or are you like me and create as many as you use up?!?!?

Not sure what it is about hubby's and them needing to eat .. .. I have the same problem LOL!!!

Thank you for sharing more snippet inspiration this week.

Love Jules xx
