When i was playing and making yesterdays Max and Whiskers- card i got inspired so today i finished of a second one, this one ia bit darker color.
The image is from Recollections Meow Meow set and have been colored with some Natural Gray Copics. The Background in the ovals is distress inks, and i masked of an area for the ground using a torn post-it.
All the papers is from Basic Gray’s Max and Whiskers collection and its the 12×12 single papers that have been used. The buttons used as embellishments is half a snap-button (no idea of its real English name) and i found them in my sewing-box some time ago. I did attach the ribbon on the Nestabilities Oval with a regular stapler.
I tried to keep the inside on the same theme but i made the lower part a bit lower. The paw-stamps is from the same Recollection’s set.
Copic: N9, N7, N5, N3, N1, E04

This card is ordered by a work-friend to my mom and the directiv was: a birthday card for a woman that loves cats, 15X10cm. So this is what i ended up with, i hope she gets happy and will approve of it.
I tried to keep the layout pretty simple sense the papers have a lot going on on them. The papers is from Basic Greys collection Max and Whiskers and i used my 6×6″ paperpad.I used a cream cardstock for the base and a golden shimmering one for the framing. Without seeing the shimmer i think it had the exact color as some of the yellow/light orange tones on the background-papers so i was thrilled finding it in my stash. I also like the edge it give the card when the light hit the shimmer. I got even more thrilled when i realized that i usually are thinking of putting it away sense it never seem to fit any of my projects. I have to use it more times with these papers!
The image is from my new stamp-set Meow Meow from recollections and i did the kitten very bright to keep a light look on the card. The cat is colored with Copics (I so love it, i didn’t spend much time when i needed it to be done quickly but it’s still way better then lots of time with promarkers!). On all the areas with colors, like the necklace and the pendant i colored a thin layer of N3 to dull out the color a bit to really match the backgroundpapers. The cat and the scalloped and regular circle, the circles are nestabilities, have both been put up bit foam tape, and the backing in the circle have been slightly distressed with Broken China.
I tried to mirror the inside with the front with the exception that the inside scalloped Circle is bigger (more room for writing) and that the proportions on the patterned papers therefore got a bit smaller.

Simon Says Stamp – Anything Goes
Som tidigare sagt så skulle min kära mor och far till USA och det var därför jag beställde mina Copic-pennor. Jag gav även mamma en lite lista med saker som jag skulle vilja ha i fall att hon skulle se nåt när hon var ute. Det visade sig att hon åkte till Michaels och några andra ställen och hittade en hel del. Hon hittade bland annat en kopia på Making Memories Desktop Carousel, tim holtz shears, en massa stämplar och en massa embossingfolders! Titta bara på skatten hon kom hem med! Hon bar ut en stor påse, som hon knappt kunde ha i famnen, som hon plockad upp en massa godsaker över. Nu ska jag bara sortera in dem och leka lite med dom!
As said before my mother and father went to USA so i ordered my set of Copics. But i also gave my dear mother a list of things i would like if she could find them. She did find some and bought alot other too, and i mean a lot! SHa carried in a big bag from wich she started to show me what she found. Here comes some photos of the treasure.
