Frisky Felines and Playful Pups Hop!

Good morning! Welcome to our February inspiration hop, featuring awesome sets from Gina K.'s daughter, Alicia Krupsky! Ready to get your cat and pup on?  Here we go!  As exciting as it is to get to that next blog for more eye candy, be sure to comment on the blogs as you hop because Gina has a $50 gift certificate to give away!  Winner will be randomly drawn from all comments and announced on StampTV a few days after the top! Check the Big News Forum.

The first card features Frisky Felines.  (Love the dies for both these sets to quickly make a dimensional critter!) I stamped up a background with the paw and yarn, stamped my sentiment and cat, and added one peeking out, ya know, the way cats DO! Cat lovers recognize these little cat "quirks" and behaviors and will make your cards extra fun!  Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury White and Innocent Pink.

The second card features Playful Pups. Playful, indeed!  I stamped the Inspiration Mosaic frame to give me a nice layout for these little guys and a perfect spot to pop in the darling greeting.  Just add puppy treats!  I masked these stamped dog bones in GKD Kraft ink into 4 of the mosaic sections, and then colored and popped up the stamped and die cut puppies.  Cardstock is Pure Luxury White and Kraft.

I made a third card for today's hop because I couldn't resist mixing the two sets when I saw how perfectly the belly rub pup and standing pose cat went with the "...when I knead you" greeting for the cat set! I die!!


Nothing like those two little paws kneading accompanied by contented purring to make all your troubles melt away!  I colored in the borders of my stamped Holiday Frame with Spectrum Noir markers and masked in some paw prints at the bottom and top.  Base and die cut heart (from Gina's Double Stitched Circle die set) are Pure Luxury Red Velvet.

  23. Your cat peeking out behind the panel looks so much like my Mischief. Yes she lives up to her name. The frame you used on card #2 is one I use a lot. There is so much you can do with it. The belly rub pup is my favorite of the set. Using both cat & dog on the Valentine card was a great choice. Cute.
