New Release at Aurora Wings


I'm again thrilled to be joining the Aurora Wings Showcase Team with the new release of Beach Kitty in celebration of 2750+ members in the Stamps by Aurora Wings FB Group.



Here's a closeup of the adorable Beach Kitty.  She's colored with Copics with some Rock Candy Distress Stickles on her frosty glass.  "She?", you say.  Well, I suppose she could be a little boy, but I find there are far more attractive girls with ginger hair, with the possible exception of Prince Harry, don'tcha think? LOL  I've used the png version and flipped her, but she also comes in a full beach background jpg version HERE.



I've made a cutaway card front by printing a non copyrighted beach photo from the internet twice.  I positioned Beach Kitty and lightly drew around her to cut the front mat.  Then I did the same for the card front with the mat in place.  Beach Kitty was printed 3 times, fussy cut and layered.  (There are actually 3 layers to the umbrella, which doesn't show from this angle.)  The sentiment was computer generated and popped with foam, as well.  The little flip flops are embellishments from JoLee's. Aren't they cute?



And here it is open, to reveal her lost sunglasses (also JoLee's) and the rest of the sentiment.  Be sure to stop by the Showcase Blog to see more fabulous inspiration from the Showcase Team and there might even be a surprise for you puppy lovers.  

Today kicks off our 2750 member celebration in the Stamps by Aurora Wings FB Group, as well.  Pop in for games and giveaways, contest and even a Freebie digi plus a super discount code you can use on the new releases.  Hope to see you there.




Here's how to keep up with all that's happening at Aurora Wings.

  2. Love the shape of the card and how you matched the papers from the front and the back. Fab colouring and colours on the cute little kitty and such summerly card. Love also how you did the sun umbrella, fabulous idea to use several colours, makes it more like summer also, lots of hugs, Marion

  3. Ooooh, love how this card opens to reveal the kitty's sunglasses, Donna! The sentiment's placement is awesome, too. And did I tell you how much she looks like my Fanta (He's a giant boy kitty - Maine Coon mix - weighing about 18 lbs.)? I totally squeed and showed this to everyone at my house. I just want to cuddle her, and I don't care now matter how hot it is. lol I also love how pretty the umbrella and deck chair design is with your coloring. Thank you so much for helping me with today's new release, Donna!! Mitzi xxx
