I have two cards for your inspiration today. 

Card One: Kitty Made With Love Tags
IO Stamps:
How I made my card:
  • I layered a panel of leaf vine pp onto an ivory A2 card front and distressed the edges with distress ink.
  • I lined the larger tag with pp, and wrapped a ribbon around it and tied with a button.  I added a ribbon to the top.
  • I stamped and watercolored the Kitty Hug image, fussy cut it, and added it to the tag.
  • On the smaller tag, I stamped the Made For You verse, distressed the edges, and added some buttons and ribbon.
  • I attached the tags to the card front.
  • INSIDE:  I added some pp, and a partial image of the Kitty Hug, and the Sending Hugs verse. 

Card Two:  Sending A Big Squeeze

IO Stamps Links:
How I made it:
  • I lined a white A2 card front with patterned papers in yellows and black and white, and added a button with some twine. 
  • I embossed the Big Squeeze verse with white embossing powder.
  • I used Derwent Inktense pencils to watercolor the Lemon, and fussy-cut it and added it to the front with foam tape.
  • INSIDE:  I distressed an area, and stamped the Lemon image.

    And there you have my cards for Day 2 of the January 2021 release.  I hope you have found inspiration in them.

  1. Your cards are so cute. The sentiment on the lemon card hits home. Our youngest daughter will tell her daddy she wants a big squeeze hug. I could always add hug after it. So cute.

  2. I love both of your cards and those tags!! That cat makes a perfect tag!

  3. Oh my, I live the cards, but the lemon card is my favorite. It just pops with the black. Thanks for sharing!
