Whimsy Stamps ~ Sweet Kitty Cat

Crafty pals, I'm sorry I've been AWOL again. We're busy packing up my beautiful mama's home and getting her ready to move house. Sigh, what a process and what a lot of memories from her time there. But life is not static, we are always moving, changing and adapting and this is one big change for my lovely mama that is requiring a little extra help right now. So I'll be popping in less for the next few weeks. But while I'm here now, let me share a sweet creation I've made this month, for my darling little niece. She's recently learnt that she will be a big sister early next year and she's very excited. But she's also very little and I remember that big changes for little people can be challenging, so I've been trying to hunt down my kiddos copy of 'You're All My Favourites' to share with her and this little card will go with it. She has two kitties and really loves them, so when I saw this darling Wee Stamps image in our August release, I knew I needed to create a cute card for her with it. This cutie was released after a special request from a fan, how sweet is that?! It's called Sweet Kitties and comes as a cute set of three kitty images. 

I decided to keep the design quite simple, mostly because, I had a red card base on my table from another make, which I thought could work perfectly for this creation. So I found one of my Whimsy dies that fit the card width really nicely and left just a little of the card base peeking top and bottom and then added a little strip of gold glitter tape along the edges to finish. I didn't think it needed much else, as I'd gone to town with inking the background. So I just added a simple sentiment which was perfect for my sweet niece. This is from a cute Whimsy Stamps Christmas set called Bunny Delivery

I coloured this cutie with my copic markers and had fun turning this sweet kitty into a marmalade moggie. Not sure I got the face quite right, but was pretty happy over all. I had fun creating the clouds too, which I really should do more, but masking, bah, all that fussy cutting! It's worth it though right, so cute!

If you've not had a chance to check out the September Digital Release at Whimsy, be sure you do, it's fabulous. You can click through on the link above. I'll be back again when I'm able with another crafty adventure, in the meantime, it's more house packing for me! Wishing you all a wonderful week. Hugs xoxo

I absolutely LOVE this one. Sooo cute x
What a gorgeous card Wends - Love your sky and that gorgeous kitty.
I hear you about sorting stuff for your Mum - I am currently puddling, purging and packing too, and it's a long slow and at times painful process, which is partly why I am AWOL too.
Stay safe
