I Will Hug Him and Pet Him and Call Him George!....more Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peeks!

LOL...have you ever set eyes on a stamp and had a quote from a cartoon or movie pop into your head?? Well, that's exactly what happened as soon as I saw "Frank 'n Kitty", a brand new Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp by Krafty Artist Emilie Goulet that is will be released this Sunday! I took one look at Frank 'n Kitty and remembered the Loony Toons Abominable Snowman cuddling poor Daffy (who he thought was a bunny) and saying "I will name him George and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him." (If you have absolutely  NO idea what I'm talking about and think I'm a bit of a Loony Toon myself...which is arguably true some days, lol...I'll have a link at the bottom of the post to a little snippet of classic Loony Toons fun! But, not until after you see the new STAMP first!)

So without further ado...meet "Frank 'n Kitty"! This stamp is hilarious, and yet another shining example of Emilie's talent for creating such personality in her characters. The papers are from Echo Park. I added a bit of faux stitching with a ruler and a Copic multiliner. The "Trick or Treat" sentiment I used is from the Halloween Sentiments set, which just happens to be a perfect compliment to this year's Halloween release!


Frank is looking quite enthralled with his new pet...the cat (or "George" lol) on the other hand, not so much! As a matter of fact, I've seldom seen a cat look that, errr, let's just say perturbed. :) The image was stamped with Memento Ink on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers. The background was sponged with Bundled Sage and Black Soot Distress Inks.

That is a favorite cartoon of mine! I can hear and see it perfectly in my head. Your card is perfect! The coloring is fantastic!

Dana said...

First off, your card is simply amazing! Your coloring and entire layout are nothing shy of perfection. Second, I thought for sure the link was going to be for Elvira from the Tiny toons that used to grab all the animals and say something like, "I am going to love them, and hug them and squeeze them to death". So thanks for that memory (still giggling) but you're right, this clip is perfect for these two!! Loved the walk down memory lane!
