Wishing you a Purrfect Valentine’s Day



This was my favourite card that I made for Valentine’s Day this year, these buff kitty’s are coloured with Copic markers on Neenah solar white card stock. The back panel is ink blended with worn lipstick distress oxide ink and stenciled over with a heart stencil to give a gradient effect. The love maze was added beneath the front panel and attached to the card base.

The kitties are raised with pop dots for added dimension and glossy accents put onto there bows for added detail. The sentiment was stamped in crisp black ink. The front panel is then added to a 110lbs white card base.

You Give the Best Hugs | MFT


This card can be given for so many occasions, either as a Pet Adoption, To Cheer Someone Up, a Thank You, for a family member or a best friend Just Because.  Interactive cards are one of my favorite type of cards to make (shake, shake, shake!)

The images are from two different stamp sets, Birdie Brown; I knead You and Friends Furever. I masked them off in order to have them sit side by side. I ink blended the background with distress oxide inks, twisted citron and picked raspberry colors and spritzed it with water and set aside to dry.
I then created my shaker pouch with acetate and foam tape then filled it up with sequins, beads, and confetti hearts. Stamped my sentiment with crisp black ink on white #80 Neenah card stock strip and set it off with a black and white accent. Adhered the front panel to a #110lbs card base and that finishes up this cute interactive card.

I'm Smitten With You | MFT | NandT



We are just three days away from Valentine's Day, are you ready for this romantic day to share your felines!  Here is a super cute card with two crazy cats, and a love maze.

I really enjoyed coloring these silver tabbies in cool gray tones with Copic markers on Neenah 80lbs paper. The front panel was ink blended with distress oxide candied apple and blended with worn lipstick,  the hearts were then stenciled over top. I detailed the front panel with the MFT wonky stitched rectangle die, and inserted the heart maze game.

The sentiment is stamped and white heat embossed on a piece of black card stock and fish tailed. The cats are pop dotted for added dimension and interest, glossy accents are added to there noses and bows. The entire front panel is then placed onto a 110lbs white card base.

Pet Sympathy


There comes a time when we all need a card like this unfortunately, when we know someone who has lost there furrbaby. I CAS'd this card from Nichol Magoiurk, though I did change it up as I didn't have exactly the same stamps as she did.

I first stamped my panel with beige ink and mounted it onto my card base. I then die cut my second panel with the paw prints on Neenah Solar white card stock and stamped the sentiment with SU taupe ink. I ran the front panel through my die cut machine again with the MFT wonky stitched borders to give the edges some decorative details. Than diecut two grey paw prints for inlaying into the front panel. Die cut my red hearts, glittered and added glossy accents to give them a finishing touch!
