Twofer Fun #4 with the Kats.....

Hi there, everyone: I have a couple of cards to share with you for the Twofer Card Challenge #4 in which Darnell and the team are asking us to create two cards, for different occasions using the same stamps or dies, the prompt word this time is PETS so, here is my take on this challenge, using a couple of my Kaztlekraft adorable kitty images.


I must say that I'm an animal lover person, when our daughters were young, we had our share of both kitties and doggies in our house plus hamsters, frogs, fish, mice, and quite a few backyard birds and ducklings and bunnies that were rescued as little babies and raised by us and then, let go free. 
 These cats are from a Katzelkraft set called "Russian Cats",  these images are all fun and fabulous, you can really create all kinds of cards by just changing the sentiment.
I stamped these kitties on watercolor paper with Stazon black in and colored them with SU markers.
All the accessories and sentiments are from several stamp sets that were perfect for the themes on my cards, I love it when I can use a whole bunch of stamps from my treasured stash.

*******************************************************************

Here are some individual pictures of the cards.



The pattern paper on this card is from MODASCRAP and it's called "Wood Effect", the gifts are from a retired Flourishes set called "All Wrapped Up!", the little cup cake is from a Penny Black set called "Cupcakes" (temporarily out of stock 😞)
The sentiment is from two Power Poppy sets, I just added a couple of extra "O's" and "U's" to the words to make sure you guys know this kitty is singing his little heart out.
The hats were handmade with some scraps of glitter and foil papers.

This is how the INSIDE this card looks like.


The sentiment and the little horn are from a Power Poppy set called "Marcella's Mixed Tape 2"

*********************************************************************

This is my second card, using the same cats, I just added a table from the retired SU set called "Scenes from a Garden", a couple of little Santa's hats for the kitties from the Power Poppy set called Merry Littles  and a line of die cut Christmas Lights from Whimsy Stamps, hope you can see the Glossy Accents on them. The Sentiment and the musical notes the kitty is singing are from a Stamping Bella set called "Caroling Chicks , the same gifts from Flourishes. Colored everything with SU markers and added Dazzling Details to the pom poms and rim of the hats.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Ponsettia, the little gift from "Merry Littles"

I would like to enter these cards on the following challenges.

I have a huge smile on my face and Hammy is giggling like a school girl! We just love the scenes you have created, Maria! That cat singing (such fantastic sediments that you improved!) his heart out to the ol' grumpy cat is just so amusing! Your attention to details like the wooden floor, party hats, presents, table, string of lights, and the insides of your cards is magnificent! And, of course, how fun that you used a twofer of cats for your Twofer cards to create two different designs for two different occasions!! Mwah! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #4! Hugs, Darnell
