Birthday Card ~ Curious Kitties {2nd Post}

I wanted to create a one layer card using the making technique. 
First I die cut circles from three sticky notes.
I used the negative cut portion to stamp the kitties.
Then I placed the circles on and sponged the sky background.
To finish off  I colored the kitties up with my Copic markers.

*Kitty from the Newton's Birthday Bash stamp set from Newton's Nook.

Birthday Card ~ Bubbles and Balloons {1st Post}

I am kind of on a birthday card roll this week.
To create my background I inked up the bubble embossing folder.
Next I die cut the balloons and gave them some twine string.
Then fussy cut the little kitty out after coloring him up.

I can just imagine this little guy laughing and 
having so much fun chasing bubbles and balloons.
