Cat Scraps

Double D Challenges – Use Your Scraps As You See It Challenge #227 – A Reel Choice

I can be terrible about scraps but I happened to find this cat background hiding on my desk that I probably should have dusted off since I’ve had this piece forever. The cat background is material mounted on cardstock, kitty and the other stamped elements are a Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Cat Chat stamp, die set and embossing folder. All other pieces were from scrap cuttings with the exception of the card base. This will be entered in to the Double D Challenges “Use Your Scraps” challenge.

Then I was struggling to play along with the As You See It Challenge #227 “A Reel Choice” to create a card with your favorite movie as the theme. My cat card movie is Disney’s “Inside Out” which is a computer animated movie about our emotions and how they are controlled. At the end of the movie, during the credits the emotions of dogs and cats are shown. The cats emotions are so funny and typical that I just laugh thinking about cats and especially my PennyLane. I’d like to turn his emotions off at 5 a.m. when he believes he needs to eat breakfast. I bat his paws out of my face and him walking on me and even the little “love” nips I receive. Breakfast is not one minute before 7 a.m. Most days I win but not always. Emotions!!!

Thanks for looking. It was a beautiful day is Pennsylvania. Stay Safe.

  1. Hahaha! I love the look on your cat’s face in this card! Cats definitely have a range of emotions! I can tell most of my cat’s moods by her meows! You picked a great movie to do, I was really impressed by that one! Thanks for playing along with our challenge at As You See It Challenges.

    1. LOL…I’m glad I saved this material background. Thanks for commenting and another fun challenge.

  2. Fun card! Love that you used fabric for your background. I totally forget about using fabric. Know nothing about the movie, but it sounds like a perfect fit with this card.

    1. Thanks, Lisa, I was really trying to think of a movie for this challenge that would work. Inside Out is one of my favorite Disney movies.

  3. Great job Gayle – the expressions on those cat faces are priceless! Cats are indeed curious creatures. Thanks for playing along with us over at As You See It!

  4. Cute card. I never would think of using fabric scraps – probably because I don’t sew – but the piece makes a great background. Love your story behind the Reel challenge.

    1. Thanks, Judy, I was having trouble trying to come up with a movie theme when I found the cat material. It really is a cute movie.

  5. This is a winner to me on both challenges. Very creative and like Judy I love the story behind the Reel challenge part. Know exactly what you mean about your cat. Ours were similar when we had them and one in particular never stopped talking to me. Fabric scrap piece is a great choice for a background.

    1. Thanks Johanna. I try not to figure out my cat. This movie challenge needed a lot of thought.

  6. Using a fabric scrap – great idea. I enjoyed your explanation of the movie and your cat! Thanks for playing along with us again at As You See It Challenge.

    1. Thanks, Jan, it was quite a challenge trying to come up with a movie themed card. I was happy to be able to play along.

  7. I love this card Gayle. So creative of you to use fabric. Lucky PennyLane is with you, my breakfast time is not one minute before noon 🙂

  8. Gayle, what a fun card and a catastic way to use up scraps/leftovers! Great job. I love that you used material, too, as that adds the fun touchable quality to your card.
