Cards con gatti

Ho tentato di fare velocemente due card usando solo bits and bobs già pronti, con il vincolo di usare un animale su entrambe -anzi, lo identico stesso animale- per poter partecipare al Twofer Card Challenge #4 di Darnell.
Non riesco mai a entrare nel challenge, ho sempre pochissimo tempo.... Ultimamente sono fortunata se riesco a fare una card alla settimana!! :( Ma gli animali sono sempre uno dei miei temi preferiti, così mi sono impegnata. LOL
Non sono molto soddisfatta di come sono venute fuori, ma almeno sono riuscita a farle e ho eliminato qualche avanzo :)
L'elemento "gemello" è uno dei miei timbri preferiti: un simpaticissimo gattino di Jane's Doodles.
Per la prima card ho usato un cartoncino fuxia, un bellissimo diecut background che Pia mi ha mandato molto tempo fa, un piccolo avanzo di cartoncino nero e una sottile striscetta di cartoncino viola, alcune gemme e Nuvo Drops sul cuore.
Il sentiment "Meow" fa parte del set di Jane's Doodle.
Nella seconda card, più maschile, il micio è in compagnia dei suoi amici :)

Il pannello di base è un cartoncino azzurro, su cui ho incollato uno dei miei esperimenti con il Gelli Plate (l'unico che non mi piaceva), questo:
Finalmente l'ho tolto di mezzo!! LOL :D Ci ho incollato sopra un cartoncino color kraft recuperato da una scatola di cibo per gatti, che avevo embossato con un' EF Marianne Design. Ho incollato con il foam biadesivo i tre gatti (colorati con i ProMarkers e ritagliati a mano) e un ovale stitched tagliato da un pezzo di cartoncino mirri.
Il sentiment è digitale by LOTV, tagliato con un punch e colorato con i Distress.
Finito!
Con questo progetto vorrei partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

Buona sera Alice,

La tua bella carta sicuramente mi farà sorridere con dolci cani e gatti dolci e colorati

Davvero felice che Lugira sia ancora calda, abbiamo trascorso quattro giorni meravigliosi qui a Cambridgeshire, ma non così caldi la prossima settimana, ma il Sole è stato bellissimo.

Quasi contando i giorni fino all'arrivo a Roma.

Thank you for taking the time to play along in Twofer Card Challenge #4, Alice! I know how busy you are and I feel special that you made these so you could join in the PETS prompt. Your sweet kitty looks perfect as the star of both incredible designs! His two friends are cute, too! And great use of lots of snippets! Hugs, Darnell

Two wonderful cards Alice and you used up some of your scraps too! I don't know why you don't like them as they look so cute with the lovely cats on them. Two very different styles but I love them both. Good luck in the challenge, I've got my fingers and toes crossed for you :D. Debra x

Congrats on getting your twofer done and using up some bits and bobs in the process! Gotta love those cute little kitties and all the sparkly bling on the birthday version, and I like that dual panel tilted at an angle too! The 2ndis such an encouraging card with those smiling kitty faces, and I love the jigsaw background too! Sure to bring big smiles to anyone - as it did to me :)

MaryH ha detto...

Well done on your take for the 2fer pets challenge. And how cool that you were able to use a lot of snippets as well to create these 2 really cute pet cards. Love all the colors & bits you've combined with these kitties- lots of texture and happiness on each of these 2 cuties! TFS & have a great week. Hugs

Awww, I love the kitty image that you used for these, so sweet! Two very different cards showcasing the same image, they are unique and beautiful! I love that you used up your extra bits, I have a hard time doing that unless it's pieces of lace. I find that the bits are never exactly what I'm after. lol. Wonderful cards Alice!

Been keeping busy this past week doing all of the nasty spring cleaning. I love how the house looks and smells when I'm all done, but getting there is such a pain! lol. Hopefully by the time the every corner of the house looks shiny and new, the weather outside will be back to warm and sunny! In a month or so, the local nurseries will start opening and I will be choosing my first flowers for the patio. I'm super excited for that!! Hope you've had a good week my friend. Sending hugs :)

Those cats look so happy on your cards! I love how the cat is set at the diagonal through the birthday background. What a great way to use your gelli plate background with the warmth of the copper and brightness of the blue. Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

Kelleyn Rothaermel ha detto...

Great job! I am sure those who receive one of these cars is going to be thrilled beyond measure!

Gio ha detto...

Sono entrambe carinissime! Specialmente la prima sul rosa. Forse un po chiassoso lo sfondo gellato sulla seconda, pero bravissima ad usarlo! Non si butta niente :-)

Nunzia Carusio ha detto...

Bellissime entrambe. Il gattino è delizioso.
Grazie per aver partecipato al Challenge de Le Tre Pazze PAPERine.

KT Fit Kitty ha detto...

Hello, my sweet friend! You know I love these cards! I see kitties, lots of kitties! They are sooooooooo cute! Of course I am drawn to the pink one because the kitty looks like Snowie, and because I love pink! But I also love the Big Smiles card because you made it more on the masculine side and that is so hard for me! Your background is fabulous!

Pia S ha detto...

This post always escaped me. But here I am, two weeks later. Your cards are really so different. One pink and feminine, perfect for youth or elderly woman equally. So fresh with fuchsia. The brownish one has lots of color but the brown abd bronze are dominant and I love how this looks.
