Happy Friday, my friend! I have a fun card to share with you today. It’s from the new Tim Holtz release from Creativation, called Snarky Cats. As you know, I love a good snark! The images are so fun, and the sentiments crack me up! This one in particular ‘I know right from wrong – and wrong is the fun one!’
Although this cat image could be of the cat lying down…I just had to get him into some mischief!
As you can see, this sassy tabby has decided that he doesn’t care for this wallpaper!
CREATE THE TORN WALLPAPER
Start with a panel of white cardstock. Mask off a triangle at the top – this will be wear the ‘wallpaper’ is being torn. Next, place the TCW Plaid Fringe stencil over the panel; hold it in place with some Purple Tape. Now, use a blending tool to apply Broken China Distress Oxide ink through the stencil.
Next, cut a triangle of white cardstock the same size as the mask you created. Stencil the front of this piece, and then tear it part way down the middle. Once finished, remove & wipe down the stencil with your Lawn Fawn shammy. Now use double sided tape to attach the ‘torn’ wallpaper to the front.
CREATE THE IMAGES
Now, stamp the cat image from the Snarky Cats stamp set onto the front, in Tuxedo Black ink. Colour in the cat with your favourite medium – I used alcohol markers for good coverage. On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp the table and lamp images from the MFT Cozy Companions stamp set. Colour them, and then use the coordinating dies to die cut them. Stamp the sentiment from the Snarky Cats set onto a strip of white paper.
Now you’re ready to put it all together! Create a bright yellow card base, and then attach a light blue cardstock panel to the front. Now, pop up the front panel using foam tape. Add the lamp, table and sentiment using foam tape or squares.
To emphasize the torn paper, I curled up the corners a bit more. Silly cat!
I hope that today’s card gave you a laugh – unless maybe you’re a cat owner, and your cat has done something similar! (mine always attacked & shredded the corners of my couch). A lot of the new Tim Holtz, and other brands are now in stock, in the store, so be sure to check them out! And speaking of cats….
