Sassy Kitty & Striped Flowers

Hi there!  I hope everyone got some time to get crafty yesterday for World Cardmaking Day. I was able to make cards for a few challenges.  First up is for the Holiday challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More using the design from Freshly Made Sketches.  This sassy Christmas kitty from Avery Elle is so adorable and I paired her with a sentiment from AE's Retro Ornaments.  I love the font on it and I thought it suited her.  The background is from an ancient sheet of 12x12 paper and I have no idea where the ribbon came from (or when the last time I used ribbon even was!).  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper:  (Twinkly Twinkle 12x12) Momenta
Stamps:  (Cat from Dear Santa, Sentiment from Retro ornaments) Avery Elle
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Markers:  (R27, R59, RV10, C1, C3) Copic
Glitter:  (Star Dust Stickles) Ranger
Gems:  Recollections

Next up is my take on Aileen's gorgeous masked and coloured card over at Muse.  As you can see I stuck pretty close to her design but I paper pieced my Altenew flowers and leaves and popped them up on foam tape.  I used the colours from The Colour Throwdown and I used corresponding Stampin' Up markers to colour the stripes on the flowers.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Gumboil Green, Pacific Point) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers from Striped Florals, Hello from Halftone Hello) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Markers:  (Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Gumboil Green, Pacific Point) Stampin' Up
Gems:  Recollections

You know me... a dog person... but I have to admit, that kitty is SWEET!
LOVE your take on Aileen's card. That was my first Altenew set. I thought it would be an easy one to start with, but I haven't used it much, I think once or twice. Inspired!
Have a great week!

Wonderful Jen, loving the retro look of your cat card (I keep telling myself I don't need those AE goodies, but I think I'm failing and you're not helping lol), and who doesn't love a sweet bouquet of flowers, your card is beautiful!

Thanks for sharing him over at ATSM. :)

Love how these flowers look on your paper piecing - so vibrant! That sentiment is cool, too, the way it fades out at the top. So glad you joined us at Muse this week, Jen! Hope you're not in Matthew's path - stay safe!

Adorable and gorgeous. One of each today. Perfect sentiment and font for that sassy kitty. I actually think she is a little bit sexy as well as sassy.

I can't believe I let myself be several provinces away from home for WCMD. :P Love the retro feel of the kitty card! (also, kitty card.) The floral hello card is so classy.
