It was really fun to use some of my new stash from The Cat’s Pajamas (TCP) and create something for the current TCP challenge: #329 Thank You. I stamped and colored the kitty in the teacup, then die-cut the teacup. I repeated the handle shape with the decorative scalloped die. Thanks for visiting.

    • Catslife Press – 557C
    • The Cat’s Pajamas – sentiment from The New Nice set

I pulled this regal kitty stamp from my stash and thought it was purrrrrfect for a New Year’s card! This is a very simple card made up of a little stamping and a little die-cutting. I inked the edges of some of the paper to repeat the light blue throughout the design. Hoping for the best in 2017! Thanks for visiting.

 


Is it Friday yet?

  • Image – from World Wildlife Fund Penguins calendar 2016
  • Stamp – The Cat’s Pajamas “Big Cups” (sentiment)
  • Die – Spellbinders Nestabilities “Romantic Rectangles”
  • Stamp – Patterned paper – Ella & Viv “Rainbow Splash #2”
  • Sequins and beads – 28 Lilac Lane

I made this card in response to a challenge in my card group–we were to use an image from a calendar (recycling, you know). Not surprisingly, I have penguin calendars every year thanks to a friend of mine! So it wasn’t difficult to find a penguin or two to fit on a card. After constructing the card with paper panels and a die-cut frame, I added a few sequins with a seed bead in the center for a bit of sparkle. Thanks for visiting.

 


It’s Pumpkin Time

  • Stamps – The Cat’s Pajamas, “Hello Pumpkin”
  • Dies –
    • The Cat’s Pajamas, “Leaves”
    • Sizzix – Tim Holtz Alterations – “Mixed Media” (used for dry embossing)
  • Embossing powder – Detail Black
  • Cardstock – Paper Accents

I created this card for the TCP Challenge #322 – Embossing. This stamp set is one of my absolute favorites! It combines penguins and pumpkins–what could be better? I embossed the image with black embossing powder and then colored it with Zig Clean Color markers. I fussy-cut the image and arranged the die-cut leaves around it. I used the Sizzix die to emboss the pattern on a green panel for a backdrop. I photographed my card on our only normal shaped pumpkin that seems to be maturing in our garden this year, just to set the mood! Thanks for visiting.


Bun-Bun drops by to greet you

  • Dies –

    • My Favorite Things Die-namics “Sun, Moon & Stars”
  • Patterned papers – Basic Grey “Hey Girl” 6 X 6” paper pad
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Copic markers

I created this card for Challenge #321 – Paper Piecing at The Cat’s Pajamas blog. I always enjoy to do paper piecing with small prints on TCP stamps—especially the hot air balloons and parachutes. I colored the bunny and bow with Copic markers. This is a very clean and simple card—with the three patterned papers, I didn’t want to make it any busier! Bun-Bun is so nicely flopped as he drops down in his parachute. Not sure that he should be so relaxed! Thanks for visiting today.

Bunny? I think so! I just couldn’t resist pulling this one out! I colored the stamped image with Copic markers. I layered the image on top of the lacy flower die-cut.  The Cat’s Pajamas Tuesday Challenge #310 – Bunnies challenge is nearly complete, but here is an honorary bunny! Enjoy your day.


Anniversary Kitty

anniversary-kitty

  • Stamps – The Cat’s Pajamas, “Raining Cats” and “Simply Said”
  • Dies –
    • The Cat’s Pajamas, “Stitched Clouds” and “Easy Stitched Bow” Cut-ups
    • Spellbinders Nestabilities, “Deckled Rectangles Large”
  • Patterned Paper –
    • My Mind’s Eye – “Remarkable” 6 X 6″ paper pad
    • Echo Park – “A Perfect Summer – Chevron Lines”
  • Epoxy dots – Doodlebug Designs – “Sprinkles Spring Assortment”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

This card features a stamp I’ve had for quite a while. The wood-mount stamp is dated 2006. My how that 10 years flew by! I layered some patterned papers to give the kitty a festive environment, and even used a tiny bit to paper piece the umbrella Miss Kitty is holding. There are some Spring heart showers descending from the cloud, appropriate for the TCP Tuesday Challenge #309: Spring. I stamped the cloud with my sentiment (also from TCP) and adhered it with some dimensional adhesive. As a finishing touch, I added the die-cut bow which turns out so great when you fold it! It also repeats the stitching seen on the cloud to help tie the elements together. Finally, I popped on three little epoxy dots and it was done. Thanks for stopping by.
