Creative with Stamps – Cute Animals


Hi all, its the 1st of the month and I’m back to inspire you to join us for a new challenge at Creative with Stamps and this month’s theme is “Cute Animals”. You have until the end of the month to share your animal cards with us and make us go “awww…so cute” and maybe win a My Favorite Things “Hooray” die, which will go to one random winner, which I am giving away!

I’m not a cute card person…or a cute anything person but the inspiration of this card descended upon me like a ton of bricks and so I clawed my way from under, just like my little kitty when she fell into my coffee thinking there were more fishes in it, not just those swimming around the saucer, and made the card in no time at all.

I started by stamping the coffee cup and saucer from Concord & 9th’s “Let’s Chat” & coloured them with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol markers. I’m still new to using them and always forget they don’t blend like my water-color brushes. I then partially stamped the kitty from Clearly Besotted’s Fluffly Furball, drew in his paws hanging on for dear life to the rim of the coffee cup, and coloured him and the coffee. The fishes were also stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black & coloured in with my Spectrum Noirs.

Since he spoilt my coffee, he decided to give me a treat when my birthday comes around. The birthday sentiment comes from Hero Arts.

Well I hope you liked my card and that you’ll pop over to my teammies at Creative with Stamps and leave them some love too. Thanks for popping by and your comments are like soft purring to my ears!

Have a great day!

  4. Oh this is so cute. Love those eyes. Love the fish swimming around the cup. Now of course they are just fish crackers. My little grandson just loves fish crackers and would rather eat those than my homemade chocolate chip cookies. I think this is only a phase.
