Cardmaking

Festive felines!

Happy Saturday crafty people!  Hope you are having a fab weekend.  I was delighted to find another new challenge which would help me build up my stash of Christmas cards for this year as well as give me an excuse to use those Marianne Designs cat dies again!

The challenge is the Christmas Kickstart Challenge and the prompt is festive felines!  I thought I would make something to reflect all three of our fluffy boys and I love that the die set allows you to make up so many different combinations of markings.

First I want to introduce you to the inspiration.  First up is Pepper who is in his 90s in cat years and is the furthest travelled, having adopted my husband when he was a kitten (Pepper, not the husband!) in South Africa,  The handsome tuxedo cat is Spats who joined the clan when he was 2 years old and is always hungry.  Last but not least is Mr Darcy AKA the Ginger Ninja (or Ginger Whinger as he is very vocal!)

And here is the card version……

I used the sentiment from the Santa Paws Hobby Art stamp set again and used some patterned paper from my scraps box.  I hope these three cuties brightened your day!

Thanks for visiting the blog, crafty hugs

A is for Anything Christmas Goes

Happy hump day crafty people!  Last year I was a bit disorganised when it came to my Christmas cards so when I heard about the ABC Christmas Challenge challenge I thought it would be a great way to have a stash of cards made throughout the year.  So this is the first of two blog posts for my January cards.

I pulled out a Hobby Art stamp (CS223D – Santa Paws) that I had bought last year and then didn’t use before Christmas and I thought it would go well with the Marianne Designs cat die cutting set (another one which I had in my stash unused).  I was inspired to make a cute Ginger cat like one of our three feline friends.

I think he likes it as he climbed onto the card when I was trying to take some pictures!  I think the caption should read “It’s mine now”!  I even included his wee ginger spot on one of his back feet.

I hope you like this cute kitty, I’ll need to make 2 more featuring Spats and Pepper so they don’t feel neglected but that could wait for another day!

I’ll be back later today with my entry for B for berries.

As always thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Craft blog, it means so much to me to see that somone has left a like or a comment.  Have a great Wednesday and I’ll see you again very soon.
