There are SO. MANY cute kitties in this set. My kids were impatient for me to finish some cards so they could get their hands on the stamps, as well.
I made three cards with this set, so let’s take a look at each one!
ON AN ANGLE
I decided to go for some fun geometric designs on these cards, while also sticking with a certain color palette. I used pinks, some blue-greens, and light peach colors. Keeping all three cards in the same color family creates a coordinated look. This is a great way to create a set of cards.
I used some craft tape and masked off the angles of my card, and then did some simple ink blending. I blended the background with pink, and then the front layer with blue-green. I stamped the kitty over the ink-blended area using some black ink and then did some simple coloring.
To finish this card, I stamped the sentiment and then the little tangled ball of string. I love how it looks like the ball of yarn is rolling down the angle!
For my second card, I ink-blended some pink stripes on my background. I used the same color pink that I used for my first card. This time, I wanted a one-layer card, so I did not add a second layer.
Then, I stamped, colored, and cut out the cute kitties using the coordinating dies with the Purrfect Cats stamp set. I LOVE it when the stamps come with coordinating dies! I typically stamp out all the images, cut them with the dies, and then have a pile of images handy to color and add to my cards.
I picked two kitties that I thought were super cute and colored them with some alcohol markers. Again, my coloring is very simple.
I added some foam adhesive to the backside of the kitties and then adhered them to my card. For the kitty dropping in from the top, I adhered him upside down and then stamped a yarn ball hanging down. This kitty just makes me smile. So much personality!
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment to finish this card!
A SET OF CIRCLES
I absolutely love how this third card turned out. I ink-blended three circles using the same colors I used on my previous two cards. For the third circle, I used a light peach color- similar to the color I used on my kitties.
I then added the circles with foam adhesive. I took some of my kitty images that I already stamped and die-cut, colored them, and added them to my circles. I tried to pick kitties that fit inside the circles. That upside-down cat just cracks me up!
I added the sentiments and finished off the card! There you have it! A trio of cards featuring Simon Hurley’s Purrfect Cats stamps and dies. I hope you had a good look at these kitties and have come up with a few of your own ideas on how you can craft with them!
