Purrfect Valentine's Day Card with Crafty Individuals

 It's Tuesday which means that you've got Kathi here to share a  project with you. This week my teammates and I are showcasing Crafty Individuals' wonderful stamps. Not surprisingly, I've made another Valentine's Day card. In this card, one of the cats got a special dinner for his partner. The card was created with one cat from the Trilby Cat Unmounted Stamp, one cat from the Burglar Cat Unmounted Stamp, and one of the fish and plants from the Morning Commute Unmounted Stamp. I also combined sentiments from Heffy Doodle's Classic Sentiments Clear Stamp Set and the Purrfect Day Clear Stamp Set.

Here it is:

 The snall cat from the Trilby Cat Unmounted Stamp, the rounder cat from the Burglar Cat Unmounted Stamp, and one of the fish from the Morning Commute Unmounted Stamp were stamped onto white cardstock with Copic-friendly ink.

Both cats and the fish were fussy-cut with the fish losing his sailor's hat in the process. All three images were colored with Copic markers and edged with a black pen.

A circle die was used to cut embossable window plastic and white cardstock. The tops of both were cut off to make the circle look like a fishbowl. 

Removable tape was used to mask the top of the embossable window plastic circle, then Copic markers were used to airbrush the plastic, which was then heat set. White paint pen was used to add a highlight to the plastic.

Green Copic-friendly ink was used to repeatedly stamp one of the plant stamps from the  Morning Commute Unmounted Stamp along the base of the decapitated white paper circle.  Copic markers were used to color the plants and to add dimension and shading to the "glass" bowl. Sadly, I went too dark. Alas.

The fish was adhered to the colored cardstock circle. White gel pen was used to add bubbles on the plant and by the fish's mouth.

Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink by Imagine Crafts was used to stamp the combined sentiment from the Classic Sentiments Clear Stamp Set and the Purrfect Day Clear Stamp Set as well as the other two sentiments. Speech bubble dies were used to cut the sentiments.

Patterned paper was cut with a scalloped die-cut, then adhered to a pale yellow 5" x 7" card. The paper circle was adhered to the die-cut and the "uh-oh" sentiment speech bubble was adhered. The plastic circle was placed over the paper circle. Sparkly washi tape was used to cover the base of the circle. 

Tape and staples were used to adhere the plastic circle and were then hidden when the fussy-cut cats were adhered as shown using 3-D Foam Pads by Hunkydory Crafts.

The other sentiment speech bubbles were adhered to finish the card.
