In Love with Cats

Hi Everybody,

I am so excited to share my card ideas with you as part of the Addicted to Stamps and More Design Team.

Making my debut was made really easy, because the very inspirational stamps from Di’s Digi Downloads, our sponsor for this week and in fact the whole month of June!!!

Thanks also to Kylie, Loll, Florence, Danielle, Nonni, Shana, Sue, Caz, Sandie and Deepti for making me so welcome, and of course for all your help too. šŸ™‚

AsĀ already mentioned above our sponsor for the whole month of June is

My Digi Store

And this weeks challenge #48 at ATSAMĀ is ADDICTED TO COLOUR … and what beautiful colours we have to work with

We have a lovely pastel yellow, plum and green … and here is what I made:

Daisy with Kittens I

The colour challenge invites you to use the challenge colours (orĀ as close as you can get, the Spampin’Up! colours are a guide only)Ā plus any neutrals. As you can see the neutrals used on my card are white, grey, brown and skin tones. Apart from that I used the following Promarkers: Pear & Leaf Green for the shoes and hair band, Gold & Buttercup for the dress and Orchid & Cool Grey1 for the hair. Blending Orchid with Cool Grey1 gave me a colour similar to Perfect Plum, similarly Pear and Leaf Green achieved a colour close to Wild Wasabi and Gold with Buttercup gave me a colour close to So Saffron.

All of these were used to colour the beautifully cute ‘Daisies Kittens’ stamp by Di’s Digi DownloadsĀ before layering it on Perfect Plum Card. I thenĀ embossed some So Saffron card, rounded one of the corners and edged it using Wild Wasabi ink. I then die cut theĀ fence from white glitter card and the green leafy swirls from Wild Wasabi card. I stamped the sentiment, layered it on some Wasabi card and punched lots of white little daisies before assembling it all and finishing off by adding yellow gems to the daisy centres.

IĀ like the garden-feel of the card andĀ Daisy looks as if she isĀ certainly enjoying herself surrounded by all these kittens wanting a cuddle. Maybe the sunshine over the last couple of days had something to do with the inspiration for the card … and of course I can’t resist a catty stamp. šŸ™‚

Please pop over to Addicted to Stamps and More and have a look at all the fabulous creations from the very talented Design Team Members … and please do join in the fun.

Hope that you feel inspired to try our colour challengeĀ …

Happy Crafting!!! šŸ™‚

Dies used are from X-Cut, Marianne Creatables andĀ Magnolia DooHickey, the small daisy punch is from Woodware
