You are LOVED

Hi, friends! Hope you’re having an awesome Tuesday! I’ve popped in this evening to share a project I created yesterday afternoon for The Outlawz Challenges. This kitty-themed birthday card is for the new Crash Your Stash Challenge where Lee Holland Art is our sponsor and the challenge this month is to use Washi Tape. I think I can handle that… I have a ton of it and I love it!

But first… before I get to my project, let me side-track you for a minute to show you my most frequent light box visitor… our guy, Loki! I periodically take photos of him when he jumps into my light box so if you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ve seen him. If not, he’s the guy that appeared under our 85-year-old neighbor’s carport back in late October. He was tiny, crying and starving, and his little eyes were matted shut. Our neighbor called my husband and *poof – just like that* we had a new addition to our family and were headed to the vet. He’s grown in leaps and bounds – we think he’s about nine months old now – and is full of ‘spit and vinegar’ as my mother would have said, lol! ;)


Okay, now on to my project. I dug into my October Afternoon stash and grabbed a couple patterned papers, a memory card and a kitten sticker. Love these packs because everything coordinates. And I had a couple rolls of skinny pink Washi Tape that perfectly matched. ;)


The printed Washi Tape was a half scallop so I laid down two strips and then added the glitter Washi Tape on top so the little tiny scallops peeked out both sides.


I rounded all four corners of the card base and background patterned paper. I added  strips of coordinating paper along with the Washi Tape, and then adhered the memory card in the lower right corner. I added the kitten sticker and stamped some tiny paw prints in black ink in the corner.


I embellished the inside panel with the floral paper used for the strips on the front, stamped the sentiment in pink ink, and layered the panel on light teal cardstock. I stamped a few more tiny paw prints in the right lower corner. The sentiment and paw prints are from a Frantic Stamper clear stamp set I recently got called ‘Cat Happiness’ and OMG, the sentiments in this set are fantastic!


And one more peek… totally loving how this turned out! I sure am smitten with this kitten! ;)

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
