Purr More, Hiss Less for JessicaLynnOriginal Blog Hop

Hi everyone! As I mentioned last week, I’ve been asked to guest design for JessicaLynnOriginal and am so proud to be participating in the JessicaLynnOriginal ‘Love Your Pets’ Blog Hop going on April 21st through the 29th, which is raising money for Lucky Mutts Rescue. This amazing blog hop is open to anyone using JessicaLynnOriginal pet stamps (dogs or cats) to add their links, and for each card added, JessicaLynnOriginal will donate 50 cents to Lucky Mutts!

Using the absolutely adorable Celine’s Kittens stamp set, I created an Impossible Card as another one of my projects for the blog hop. I had never heard of this fold but YouTube has quite a few videos on it and I fell in love! My inspiration came from this version HERE but without the partial die cutting. I will try that one next, lol!

I picked out several coordinating papers that I layered on black which I thought would look great against the white card base. I colored the image with several Spectrum Noir markers and then layered it on the turquoise chevron patterned paper and again on black cardstock. The cool thing about this fold is the element with the focal image sits up quite prominently and what an adorable kitty to steal all the attention! ;)


I decorated the back strip with several fussy-cut kitty paws. The focal image folds backwards, completely flat, to slide into the envelope.


And one final shot with the focal image laying (almost) flat. I decorated the front with several hand-cut flags positioned under the stamped sentiment layered on a scalloped circle and oval. I’m really loving how this turned out and I see more of these in my future!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment! I love reading them!
