Cat Love, New Release for AALL & Create

Hello Friends

I am back again with another of AALL & Create's new release and this time I have created an accordion card using 'Cat Love' by Janet Klein for AALL & Create (#256) along with Stencil #19 by Autour de Mwa.

The image is so quirky and I just adore her cat!  Cutesy is way out of my comfort zone so I thought I would compensate and create something a bit more than just a standard card.  I used Karen Burniston's Accordion die set by Sizzix to create a single accordion fold card.  I think it shows her of quite well.....

I die cut the elements using Watercolour cardstock.
I brayered paint onto the front and back of the die cut elements and stamped
the images onto the separate die cut pieces.
Next, I used embossing paste to stencil the top and bottom of each of the frames.  Once the paste was dry I applied a light coat of Distress Oxide to blend the stencil in on the front and I stencilled the back of the frames directly onto the frame with Distress Oxide.
I watercoloured all of the images, after stamping an extra set,  fussy cut these and added them over the original images to give them some dimension.  I 'grounded' the girl and cat by adding some ripped washi tape.  I added a sparkly bow to her hair.
I stamped the sentiment and added it to the opposite side of the accordion.  This is a view of the card, closed and from the back.
This is a view of the finished card, closed, from the front.
If you are interested in purchasing the stamp and stencil you can find a list of worldwide stockists HERE.

Thanks so much for your visit, I really appreciate it!

Hugs, Anne xx


  1. Simply wonderful! And I just love that stenciling along time top and bottom. She just the right amount of funky and you have certainly done her proud! xx

  2. This is quirky with a capital Q, Annie, and just as, um, I was going to say cute, but I won't! Sorry! But what if you think that crazy-eyed little girl and her cat are just adorable?! (Yes, I am odd, why do you ask?) What we can agree on is how FUN this is, with excellent stenciling and coloring! And just look at that clever Washi tape grounding!! Hugs, Darnell xxoo

  3. This is fabulous Anne, great quirkly card and I love the stencilling. Have a very happy week, Sue xx

  4. This is wonderful, Anne . Love the fresh colours of the card and the stenciling around the frame - the perfect choice . The cute , quirky mages are brought to life with your wonderful painting - great shadowing!

    On time for this post but now heading off to catch up on all your others I have missed over the last few weeks . I really am sorry to be running so late.

    Big hugs x

  5. Constructions like this always make me itch to have a play with them, just to see how all those folds and panels and sides twist and turn! Love the fun, fresh look and the gorgeous beach colour palette of the background.

    (Yes, it's been a real drag - "only" a cold, but you're right about how it knocks you out! Hope you're doing well.)

  6. I'm always amazed when I see designs like this Anne, how clever the designer must be to have thought this up. Your so clever too to put this sweet card together as I know the die would surely confuse me. Those images have always made me smile, it's so good to see their designs part of AALL & Create now. Beautifully coloured, the variety of stencilling is the icing on the cake for me, fabulous added detail. One to put a smile on anyones face.
    Sorry I am late visiting, I've been down with a virus.. yup it got me too :(
    Sending HUgs your way (not contagious ones..!!) Tracey xx

  7. Oh my gosh!!! I'm smiling at this one Anne!. I'm not generally cutesy, and not too fond of cats either, yet this really appeals. You are so versatile! Absolutely superb design, the accordian dies work wonderfully here. Nicola x
