It's a TwoFer Again

Hello!  I finally came up with a couple ideas for Darnell's 4th monthly TwoFer card challenge. As you may know, I volunteer with a dog rescue organization and foster Shih Tzu's until finding them a forever home. While I am really a dog person, I do like cats and have had this kitty stamp for ages, so here are my cards! Hope you like!

 

The kitty wooden stamp is from Inkadinkado and is quite old, although I saw it at Michael's not that long ago.
I love that she looks so furry and sweet. On the first card she is stamped in Memento London Fog onto a snippet piece of light gray heathered cardstock from my stash. I made a really simple card just cutting out the frame with MFT's Die-Namics Peek-a-Boo Window die. I just love this die; so versatile. My go-to base cardstock these days is PaperTrey Ink Basic white. I like the thickness and it is very white. My sentiment, "Adopt Me" of course, reminds me of my volunteer work and a cause I fully support - adopt a pet from a shelter or rescue group not from a pet store. The die cut letters in Stampin' Up! Basic Black are also from PTI, their Upper and Lower Block alphabet collection. I used my T-ruler to try to glue them straight.
My twofer has a bit more color! Again using white cardstock, I embossed the card front with Sizzix/Tim Holtz embossing folder called Birch Trees for a little texture. The kitty was stamped in SU Baked Brown Sugar which I think was an In-Color a while back. I colored her fur with a Marvy La Plume marker in Rosewood which made her look like an orange Tabby cat. To enhance the fur and stripes, I lightly drew on each line with the marker and a brown Crayola colored pencil. The kitty was lastly fussy cut out. I had to really think what sentiment to use, so I am saying this kitty was adopted and so she says thank you! The die cut out in SU Island Indigo blue paper is from Impression Obsession, called Greetings Top Edgers

So that's my story and I am sticking to it. 'Cuz I used so many snippets of paper, I am entering this card into Pixies's Snippets Workshop Challenge # 324.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will come visit you too!
