Happy Happy, Joy Joy

Hi There & Happy Saturday!! It's me, Shari with you today-So glad that you stopped by.  I have two quickie ATCs to share with you today that I made using a couple of our new images at Lost Coast Designs--Happy Cat and Misc. Words stamps.

....Wait for it....
I sooo love the expression on this Happy Cat's face-All I see is Happy Happy, Joy Joy.  Let me show you how I put these little ATCs of sunshine together!
I enjoy making master boards and have a few of them made up in advance.  The brightness of the colors of this one was perfectly suited for today's ATCs.  I used the ATC Bigz Die to die cut a total of 4 ATCs that I adhered together for a front side and back side.
I roughed up the edges with a paper distresser and ran through my sewing machine to add the stitched border.  I inked the edges with Black Soot DI and added Black Soot DP lines to both sides, with an old gift card.  I used our Misc. Words stamp to create the word bands. 
I stamped Happy Cat onto mixed-media paper with black pigment ink and heat embossed with clear EP.  I fussy cut and adhered to the ATCs with matte Decou-Page.  I outlined with Black Soot DI and my water brush then outlined again with white gel pen. 
I'll just leave you with a close-up of this Happy Cat.  Happy Happy, Joy Joy, indeed! 
Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Don't forget to visit us at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity on February 1st for the beginning of a new challenge--Hope to see you there! 


  1. Wonderful masterboard created by Shari and such a great stamp. The cat has the most contented, "cat got the cream" expression.

  2. That sure looks like one very satisfied kitteh, and I love the backgrounds you created for it.

  3. Fabulous happy colours - and that cat is a delight!
