Hello! Today’s Mama Elephant stamp highlights featured the amazing Oh Kitty Tree! I will admit that I am a dog person but this large tree of cats has my heart. I can’t even pick my favorite kitty from the lot!
Because it’s a large image, there is a lot to color. For those of you who love to color, this is the stamp set for you. I had a lot of fun getting creative with coloring different kinds of cats. I recommend going on google and looking up “cat colors” for some inspiration. There’s actually quite a bit of variation in their coloring so it was a ton of fun to be creative.
I usually start my cards by coloring images, but for this particular card, I made the background first. I have been making a lot of blue cards lately and I already had it in my head that this would be a warm tone card. I don’t know if it’s all that “Christmas-y” but I went with Distress Inks in Candy Apple, Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold for my background and I love it! I then used the new Galactic Cover Creative Cuts to create a quick, fun and finished background. I adhered my background to a top folding A2 card base and moved on to color a ton of cats!
Now that my background is completed, I’m ready for a coloring marathon! I pulled up images of cats on Google and picked out warm browns and grays and colored away. I love how this turned out. I had a little space, so I decided to pull a few birds from Trim the Tree and having them decorating the tree with additional ornaments. I even threw in a little Easter egg in my card to celebrate Mama Elephant’s 6 years anniversary. Do you see it?
I used the coordinate die to cut out fun foam to mount my tree and give it nice even dimension. I used some strong liquid glue on the smaller images and mounted them on to my card as well.
For the sentiment, I used the Oh Joy Halo Script Creative Cuts and die cut it onto gold glitter paper and fun foam. I adhered this onto the card with some strong glue and my card is complete!
I hope you love this card as much as I do. Thank you for stopping by!
