Happy Friday!

Oh the silly stuff animals do. My cat, Katie, has a plastic fetish. She'll jump through just about anything if it means she can chomp on some plastic. It's an obsession! Anyway, my husband caught her in action with the leftover wrappings from my Valentine gift (complete with Hello Kitty wrapping paper!). Mind you, her head is THROUGH the bag handle and she ended up scampering through the house with the bag attached to her head while trying to get a better angle on the plastic! LOL! Hubby took pictures for my blog, so I couldn't let him down and not share at least one with y'all. :)

Okay, on to the stamping stuff... Today's card features designer paper from DCWV (Die Cuts with a View). It is totally de-lish as it's already pre-glittered! I glued it to a Pretty in Pink card base that I ran through my cuttlebug with the flowers embossing folder. Pulled out my Penny Black smitten stamp and stamped on Very Vanilla with Stazon Timber Brown. Colored the image in with prismacolors and mineral spirits and then doodled a frame with my Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker. Mounted on Close to Cocoa paper and adhered with pop dots. Added some sparkle to the image with my pink stardust gel pen and some adhesive rhinestones. Used a dauber and my Stampin Pastels to lightly highlight the dry embossing and then accented with Coffee Ice stickles. The hot pink organdy ribbon is from JoAnn's.
There, I did it! A week of cards with designer paper. YAY!!! This challenge thing is kind of fun. Anyone have any ideas on what you'd like to see me focus on next week? Don't be shy... all reasonable requests will be considered! LOL! :)

  6. What a pretty card- I think I bought the same stack paper - you are inspiring me to use it on my next card. If anyone is looking for this paper -- I saw it on sale on joann's online. The 12x12 pack is a great price!! (I bought the 8x8 a few weeks ago when 12x12 wasn't available). The Old World Stack is beautiful too!! Take a look hopefully it's still on sale for those looking.

    Also, my cat loves to lick plastic bags -- it is so funny (and scary) watching her. I thought it was just her, but guess not :)

  7. Katie is so cute, I can't stand it! Taz is a plastic chomper too. Her favorite is the little plastic ends of shoelaces or phone antennas. SIGH....

    As always, LOVE the card.....
