You’re Cool

11/9/19 Top 3 at Arty Divas!

Hello, my friends! It’s Day 6 of the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop and I’ve stopped in this morning to share one more kitty card with you! If you’re a fellow cat lover, be sure to come on over and play – you have until until 11:59 tonight to link up! A big/huge THANKS to Janis for all the time and effort she put into this hop! It’s much appreciated! Now I can’t wait until next year’s hop so we can do it all over again! LOL!

I created a fun romance card featuring… yep, you got it… another Tim Holtz Crazy Cat with accessories, all colored with my Studio 71 alcohol markers! OMG, this was so much fun! Check out his get-up… he’s definitely one of the coolest cats around! ;)


The yellow cardstock and patterned paper are all from GKD. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches. The sunburst is from Stampin’ Up and is another die I’ve had in my stash for several years and have never used. I have so many dies and I’ve been slowly going through all of them and using those I’ve never cracked. ;)


I added tiny dots of Morning Dew Crystal Drops on all the rays of the sunburst for a little interest. Okay, I can’t stand it! I’m loving this guy’s shades, hat and tie! I even added Glossy Accents to his sunglasses! ;)


I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of cardstock and patterned paper used on the front along with an additional coordinating paper. The sentiment is from JessicaLynnOriginal – one of our Cat Lovers Hop sponsors!


And here’s one more peek… I wasn’t too sure how this was going to turn out but I’m so glad I stuck with it until the end because I LOVE IT! ;)

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

  11. You’re pretty cool as well! This is so much fun, and I really love how you’ve been decorating the insides of your cards as well. I’ve been trying to remember to do that, as some stamp sets have perfect sentiments to continue the thought on the inside. I needed this inspiration, so thank you!

  12. Coolest cat around, that guy!! Love how you accessorized him. What a fabulous background, Leslie!! Yay for using supplies that hadn’t had any love yet. This die is just perfect for this dude. The sunburst reminds me of spotlights shining on him….like he just stepped onto a Broadway stage production of “Cats”! Ha!! Love the glitzy accents you added to the rays! The inside is cool too…and that sentiment is perfect!

    Thank you so much for playing along in the #2019CatLoversHop!!
