It's Raining Cats & Dogs....

TAC™ has come up with some great cat and dog sets and we got to stamp images from both sets while at convention.  I used the sets for a Paper Wings challenge this week and had a ball.  I believe both sets were designed by a Disney designer and they are just adorable!!

These cute cats are from the Kitty Kitty Kitty set. Don't these look like the AristoCats?  Almost realistic! I stamped with Noir PH ink on white premium card stock and colored with PrismaColor pencils, a 1/4" blender stump, and OMS (odorless mineral spirits). You can see some shading in the close up photo below.  I also used our new Maggie SWIC paper.  That paper is just gorgeous!!  The light colored border was made with a Fiskars Treading Water border punch. The Just Because is from the Sophisticated Sentiments Hostess B set which you can earn FREE with a $250 net order.

I did use the Stardust Clear Gel pen on the butterfly.  No wonder he caught the cat's attention.... And the little gems, they're from the Clear & Pearl Gem Collection. I used Glue Dots to attach them.

This cute little puppy comes from the Good Dog set, another I think made by a Disney designer. I used retired Mimi SWIC (replaced by More Mimi SWIC). He is also colored with the same products as the cat card above.  I used the 11/2" and 2" circle punches and a 1/4" hole punch, too.

Now, if it would only rain in reality...  It's quite dry here.

Love the cards ... how did you know it was a Disney designer? Guess I missed that.

I think I am loking these kitties - you did a super job coloring and love the bling.

Great spacing when overlapping sentiment frame into graphic circle, Carol. Arrrfff. Great use of retired colors with current stamps.
Embellies draw the eye evenly across the sentiment and flow of this card.
Keep Looking UP!
