Hello Kitty

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Today is Day 1 of the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop so I’ve popped in with my first project! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! A huge congrats to Janis of Her Peaceful Garden who has coordinated The Cat Lovers Hop now for seven years! It’s going on until the 30th, so if you’re a fellow cat lover, come join us! There are lots of fun and games to join in every day, and Janis has been busy lining up some pretty awesome prizes to give away at the end!

A new fun fold called a Triple Easel Panel was featured in a recent Splitcoast Stampers newsletter HERE and I just had to try it! Yep, you know me and fun folds… I’m such a fiend! As I typically do, I put my own twist on this one to make it mine. I used the Good Meowning stamp set from The Cat’s Pajamas, along with their Grassy Patches die set for the focal images on the front, and the Feline Good stamp set from The Project Bin for the inside sentiment. This was definitely a fun one that I’ll be making again!

I stamped the cats on Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating dies. I cut the card base and separate easel strips from CutCardStock Basis Teal cardstock, along with inside layers from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Aqua cardstock, and the triangular layers from October Afternoon Campfire patterned paper. I adhered the layers and elements on each easel as I went, popping the sentiments up on strips of acetate. I stamped the inside sentiment on a strip of ivory and adhered it across the center.

And one more look…. folded flat for mailing. So stinkin’ cute, I can’t stand it! LOVE this fold and these stamp sets!

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

  6. This is the cleverest card I’ve seen in a long time and I’m so glad you tried the template out. I love everything about it..from the card design, to the colors, and especially that kitty in the very typical “licking herself” pose that cats are so fond of, haha!

  7. Magnificent triple fold, Leslie, and I’m going to find instructions somewhere (since I don’t belong to Split Coast Stampers and can’t access the newsletter) and try one of those! Thanks for the marvelous inspiration. Waving hello from the Cat Lovers Hop.

  10. OH>>MY>>GOODNESS, Leslie!!! This card is completely phenomenal. You are a genius with fancy folds….I am in total awe. Any of the three panels would make a fun card, but all together this is something truly special. Love the fun messages….”Be humble (lick hind parts) and rule the world!!!” Bwahahaha… I am dying laughing!
    So glad you are feeling well enough to be part of the Hop this year. We were all worried about you!! Many thanks for participating in the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop.
