Cat Lovers Hop

Dear Friends

Good afternoon Ladies.

This is my card for the Cat Hop 2021. 



I had a rubber stamp with the words Meow and I stamped it an angle to fill in the piece of white cardstock. Then I took a circle of peach colored cardstock in which i stamped the cat and the ball of yarn in black and Blue I added four hearts in peach as embelishments. The sentiment You Clever Cat was stamped in black ink. This is my project. The cat, the ball of Yarn and the sentiment is from Art Impressions which I got as a gift from a previous Cat hop. I dont have many cat stamps as i started crafting a few years ago. Also in Sri Lanka there is only few places stamps and they dont have any cat themed stamps.

We also have a jet black cat. she gave birth to two cats a male and a female. The female is very skinny but very active.

Home made stencils

 A very good afternoon friends


I had a few stencils and my friend and crafter Ishani gave me some stencils but I did not have the above designed stencils. I took an old Xray sheet and cut it to 4.25 *5.5 and I left a border and cut the middle portion. Then i cut strips and adhered with glue. I didnt do any intricate patterns as i am not a good artist. I am super happy with the stencils and I plan to do a card using these background stencils.

Bureau storage

 Good afternoon ladies

This is how  we can see from the front . I made this bureau storage using cardboard and pattern paper and according to the instructions from Sam Calcott. I was always fascinated by Bureaus done in wood and now having one done in paper I can be  satisfied. I store my home made Gesso and Texture paste which is not available in Sri Lanka and shipping costs to import is huge. So I surfed the internet found the recipes and made it using white acrylic paint and glue. I also store the measurement spoons and other stuff that go with it and I have some more space left. As i could not get two pattern papers in same design and same colors I used same design pattern papers but in complimenting colors of pastel green and pink.



This is when open. it has four dividers and a small holder too which covers two dividers.

pop upcard

 Good evening ladies

For this card I used grey as my base and attached peach color pop ups. The patter paper I used to cover card base is pink while I attached a butterfly in black and my sentiment too  in black. I am not sure whether I have matched the colors as we dont get many colors of cardstock in Sri Lanka.

I would appreciate any comments to improve my card making as I am a new bee

Baby card

 Good Morning ladies


For this card I used an embossing folder with flowers and butterflies. Then I stamped a squirrel and colored it using watercolor pencils from Colleen. I fussy cut it and attached a stamped cake. I adhered everything using foam squares. I attached the sentiment too using foam squares. I did not attach any bling as the embossing is really rich.

I am attaching this card to .dare2bartzy.com/september-challenge/

Please give me some tips to improve my card making as I am a new bee.
