A Mother Cat & Her Kittens

Hello everyone! Today I would like to share a card I created for the new Addicted to Stamps challenge. The theme is

I have created a mother’s day card in cat’s theme. The card base is from Doohickey volume 13. Papers are from Lemon Crafts and blue mulberry paper. I decorated the card with ribbon, lace, doily, and paper flowers to give a soft and sweet look.
Magnolia Napoleon Jasper Mother's Day Card

The image is from Magnolia “Napoleon” stamp from Animals of the Year 2014 collection and “Jasper” stamp from A Christmas Story 2012 collection. The colors of five kittens were inspired by my cats. I decided to colored the mother cat in calico, as calico cats are female and she also matches with the kittens. I added light blue pom pom trim around the image because pom poms are cute and fluffy like kittens.

The paper flowers are in the same color combo as the card.

The alphabets are die cuts from Die-Versions “Little Lizzie” font. I added clear embossing enamel on top each letter to make the word “mom” even pop out.

I would like to enter this card to these challenges.

I always use distress ink to colour the fur as my cats’ colours. I have ginger, cream, grey, and bi-colour cats. All of them are my favourites. Here are the distress ink recipe for these colours.
Ginger – Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain
Grey – Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke, and Black Soot

Doily is from Cheery Lynn Designs die cut. I decorated the jar lid with chiffon trim, and help rope.

And the Storie di Timbri challenge themed

I have created a CAS card featuring a cat and a dog playing in the field together. Even though I’m a cat lover, I think it’s fun to include a dog into this card. I hand stitched along the edges and randomly added paper flowers on the ground.
Magnolia Kitty Little Hoppy with Buttercup
