Milk, Fish and Apples

Hey there!

I've got two cards to share this evening.  First up is for the CAS Colours & Sketches and Simon Says Wednesday challenges.  Katzelkraft has so many awesome images - cats, dogs, birds, and more!  I love the fact that the drawing style works so well with the Tim Holtz Crazy Cats, Dogs and Birds images.  The hat, milk bottle and fish are TH and I thought they were perfect for this kitty dreaming of birthday treats.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Flirty Flamingo, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Smokey Slate, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Cat from Les Chats Russes) Katzelkraft, (Hat from Mini Bird Crazy & Things, Fish & milk from Mini Cats & Dogs) Tim Holtz, (Sentiment from Smitten Kitten) My Favourite Things
Ink:  (VersaMark, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Speech bubble) XCut
Markers:  (RV13, C1) Copic
Gems:  Recollections

This next card is for Freshly Made Sketches, Addicted to CAS (code word Apples) and Just Add Ink (Just Add Texture).  I don't make shaker cards too often but I love this shaker apple set from Lil' Inker Designs.  It was easy to put together although I think I may have overfilled it somewhat...  Whoops.  Still getting the hang of this shaker game!  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and I used a corrugated strip after seeing the awesome corrugated waves on my friend Claire's adorable shark card.  I actually managed to dig out my old Fiskars crimper and ran some cardstock through it for some fun texture.  Thanks for the reminder, Claire! 

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Falling For You) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Apple) Lil' Inker Designs
Other:  (Microbeads) Recollections
Gems:  Recollections

Nicely done! I don't own any Katzelkraft stamps yet, although I was fortunate enough to have a friend stamp and send me some. They are awesome, aren't they? And you're right, perfect with TH accessories! Love your CAS shaker apple card, too! (Did you know the Snarky Stampers are featuring apples right now?)

Two great cards here! The shaker adds a fun touch to the apple card. Your kitty cat card is what brought me to your blog today. Such a cute image! I'll have to search out Katzelkraft. I like the color scheme you chose; it makes your card purrfectly suitable for a guy or a gal of any age. Thanks so much for making CC&S part of your crafting time! :)
