Peek A Boo!

Good Tuesday morning to all, if you visit and leave a message it is so welcome, if you don't linger long enough to leave a message you are more than welcome too.

Today's card I have managed to get some Sue dies in with the stamps , just to add a bit of fun.  The colouring of the cat is taken from my adorable much loved 18 yr old Summer who makes us wait on her 4 paws everyday, and when you get to that age I think you are allowed to call the shots. Anything she wants she gets, and my goodness doesn't she play on it. bless her.

Back to the card. I have enjoyed my time with these sweet little stamps. Here is my next offering.

Products used:-

8x8 White card
Creative Expressions- Silver foundation card
CE Green foundation card
CE white card
Creative Expression- Pickle cat stamp
Sue Wilson- Scandinavian collection- Stockholm
New York collection- Corner border & tag
Scandinavian collection-Oslo
Spellbinders tag dies
Sue Wilson EF- Sea Garden
Ribbon from my stash
Sentiment- also from CE Paws-Itively Great Stamps set

I started with the 8x8 white card and matt and layered it with the silver and green foundations card. I matt and layered the smaller layer with the same combo, but before layering I embossed the white card with Sue Wilson Tumbling Sea garden EB. I stamped the cat onto white card and coloured it with pro-markers. I then cut out the Sue Wilson dies and layered them with sticky pads and cut the body off the cat stamp and arranged it to look like it was holding onto Sue Sue's dies, just peeking over the top and attached the tail to the side.I stamped the Meow Sentiment and attached with sticky pads for even more dimension. Tied a bow and glued to the focal point. I stamped another sentiment to the spellbinder die added a cat bowl stamp and inked the sentiment while still in the die, then added with sticky pads for dimension. Just to frame the card I cut 2 border dies and hooked them over the top matt of card just to finnsh the edges..

I really hope you like this card, please feel free to leave a comment as I will love to read them.
Thank you.

  3. Such a super card Tina with a Summer look a like, your colouring is superb and the background quite simply perfect. I keep looking back at the adorable little cat who looks ready to jump off the card, so life like. What a brilliant idea of yours to finish the edges the way you have. Look what happens when you let your talent have free rein, another super Tina masterpiece! Your luxurious bow just take the card up to another level of loveliness, truly it does. Well done yet again Mrs clever clogs!!
    With love

  5. Hi Tina

    Little kitty does look like she's about to climb over the die and a very clever use of the border dies. I think this is a layout that with a change of picture and sentiments would suit many, many occasions.

    Looking forward to more!

    Hugs to all the family,

  7. Good morning Tina,
    All that is going through my head is "i hope that wee minx doesn't come down from there and mess up that bow while trying to get her dish" as she just has that look in her eyes thinking "how do i get that without mum getting angry with me". Who says animals can't talk? as this one is doing plenty with it's eyes and looks. Gorgeous card Tina that my friend would love to bits as her Poppy is a tortoiseshell cat and is a wee midden with what it gets up to and manages to lose. Thank yo u flower for a pretty card that has some life about it,
    Love and crafty hugs

    I love how you have put the sentiment in the little window at the bottom, very
    Professional looking, you are one very clever lady Tina,
    Looking forward to your next masterpiece!
