Cat Lovers Hop Day 3


Welcome to Day 3 of the Cat Lovers Hop 2021.

Another big hello to all my furry, feline-loving friends!
 A huge hello, too, to my newest follower, Sue WinterfordI am so pleased you are here!

The Cat Lovers Hop is an annual event hosted by the lovely Janis over on her blog at Her Peaceful Garden.
If you like cats pop over and have a look at the fun games and awesome prizes that Janis has organised for the next few days. 

Today I have a decoupaged card using digital collage sheets from Maremi Small Art called '10 The Gang'. The cats' faces, bodies and accessories all come as separate images ready for you to create your own custom cats.
She has dogs and people paper dolls too and all very reasonably priced.

Aren't they the sweetest thing you've ever seen?

So simple to create - simply download the digital papers, fussy cut (or use a machine if you're lucky enough to have one!), ink the edges, then get mixing and matching. They are fabulous and fun - paper dolls, but cats! 
I decided to make a card with mine, but they are perfect for journal pages too. 
I stamped the frame using a very old Gorjuss stamp set, then I lightly spritzed some Juniper Mica Spray onto acetate and used the acetate to place the colour where I wanted it. I used a water brush and the same spray ink to colour the frame. I arranged my little family and popped them on foam for some dimension. The sentiment is stamped with a lovely little sentiment stamp that I got free with a purchase from Lawn Fawn.

Look at those faces.... I am in love!

That's all for now.

Thanks for stopping by today.

  6. Fantastic, Carole! I'm going to have to go check out the 'paperdoll' cats. So glad you shared this with all of the other Cat Lovers. :-D

    1. lol So I visited the store, bought the Gang Cats, and several other bits, much more than my end-of-the-month budget can stand, actually. Shame on you for creating the great temptation!

    2. That made me laugh, Nana Connie :) Always happy to enable. Have fun! xx

    3. I'm back, this time with a DT hat on my head. :-D Thank you for playing in the Pammie's Inky Pinkies challenge this week. Good luck.

  9. This is such a sweet set of cats. I love their faces. What great outfits they have on too. It's a cute card. I'd want to keep it and never give it away. So, I read that you're an enabler. I think we ALL are. When it's cute it's hard to resist. [Bunny]

  10. this is so pretty!
