~FREEBIE~ Cat digi

I used to have 4 gorgeous cats, they all lived long, pampered lives (up to age 19) although they have all gone to cat heaven for several years now, I still miss them.  Here's a drawing I've made into a digi based on one of the many photos I have of them.   Feel free to download and print to use on your cards and projects. 
This digital stamp is only copyright to me.

Click on the image - the right click view image and then save as normal.

Here's a couple of cards I have made.  I coloured the cat both times using promarker pens, highlighting with a white gel pen and sakura clear glitter pen.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope you like the freebie and I would love to see how you use it.  See you soon..  Hug  x

LIM Week 67 One layer card

It's been ages since I made a card for the LIM blog challenge.  I have a bit of free time on my hands and decided to have a go.   I really enjoyed making this card for this week's one layer card using just 3 stamps.  I used 3 stamps from the sheet Joanna Sheen Knitting stamps., I have used one of the new spring colour distress inks by Tim Holtz - Peacock's a gorgeous colour.
Here's my card for this week...
I stampted the Home sweet home heart directly onto the card first, masked it and the margins each side so that I could stamp the 2 borders in the same colour.  It would look really lovely in different colours too so I might have a go at that later.

Thank you for looking today

Cameo meets Anna Griffin

Here are some cards I made with the Lace and Cameo stamps with some of my stash.

I used some of the lovely Anna Griffin frame and quote stamps when they were on QVC a while ago.  The backing paper used on this card is from the Thomas Kinkade CD... there are some gorgeous backing papers on this fab CD collection that I use all the time. I used the square lattice embossing folder by SU for the cream panel.. I love this folder because I love the texture.  The Lace is from the Live each moment stamp sheet stamped onto cream paper with aged mahogony Tim Holtz distress ink.  Those lovely Roses are from a lovely pack of Anna Griffin Rose 3D stickers ... I love those Lol...

 Another similar card here but using the Tied together embossing folder inked one side on the folder with TH Antique linen before running through my cuttlebug.. I love this effect, it's so soft. I used two layers of white embossed lace that I coloured after with ink .. adding a bow from the same Live each moment Lace stamp sheet and two gorgeous Anna Griffin yellow 3D Rose stickers.

For this card I stamped one of the Cameos onto black card and embossed with Gilded Ivory embossing powder then die cut the cameo using a spellbinders oval die.  I then stamped one of the lovely Anna Griffin oval frames using the same embossing powder - layering the cameo over the frame.  Using a small 4" doily and some lovely black patterned card (which is card from packaging that I had to save!).. to tone down the white card I inked the edges using TH Antique linen ink.  Quite a simple card to make but I think looks fab!

I did the cameo the same way as above but stamped onto cream card and then inked it green...for the frame I inked TH Bundled sage green on the outside of frame and TH weathered wood in the inside.  I added some lace from the Take one step lace stamp sheet that was stamped and embossed with seafoam white and inked with the TH bundled sage green... this is layered over some  gorgeous  backing paper from the Ivory cats CD

This Card using the same technique used above to create this kind of cameo but this time using shades of pink ink to create the coloured cameo   The gorgeous backing paper is from the lovely Ivory cats CD.
