Celebrate Our Cats and Pets with Chipboard

Celebrate Our Cats and Pets with Chipboard

Jennifer Snyder here today to celebrate our pets – specifically the cats.
We sure love our pets. They add such dimension to our lives and fill our homes with joy and affection.  If you are like me, I can have a full-blown conversation with my cat.  ( I see some of you nodding in agreement.)
The loss of a beloved pet is devastating and heartbreaking.  Let’s reach out and give someone a virtual hug using our gift of art.    We are card makers and crafters, paper artists and mixed media aficionados.  Let’s cheer someone’s hurting heart.
Creative Embellishments has some purrrrrrrrrrfect chipboard pieces to celebrate our cats and dogs.
I used the following pieces on my cards today:

This is my version of the “Rainbow Bridge”.  It’s a simple card with simple chipboard techniques.  The cat from the Cat Set has been embossed with an Aged Gold embossing powder.  
 
The Window was painted with light cream acrylic paint before embossing.   When using light colored embossing powders, I achieve better embossing results when I paint the chipboard first.  After the paint was dry, I added a quick rainbow made by painting watercolors onto watercolor paper and gluing to the back of the window.   
This is the second cat card featuring the Creative Embellishments – Paw Prints heart.  Such a beautiful design that says so much.
I painted the heart with red acrylic paint then gently inked the edges of the heart after the paint dried.
It’s super easy to personalize the chipboard with your own sentiment or even the Kitty’s name.  I would have added the Kitty’s name but I wasn’t sure of the spelling so I kept the sentiment simple.
The papers used in this card are from Authentique (Companion collection) and Photo Play “Roxie & Friends” collection.
Thanks for stopping here today.  Give someone a hug in a card.
