With Monday being my fun day, I colored some crazy Christmas cats which were stamped out and sent by a good friend who was certain I'd enjoy coloring them. She knows me so well. From giggles to "awwws" and "ahhhs", I love coloring it all, but these darn cats in their, pardon me, ugly sweaters are a real hoot.
My friend also knows how fond I am of Stamps Happen images, another out of business company, tsk. Are you familiar with them? I did a search and find very few stamps available anywhere, and those that are available are not my favorites. Not that I need more stamps, but it's fun to look.
In the first card I framed the large cat with the negative piece that was left after cutting an oval mat. Stamped the frame with SU's Distressed Dots background. All this old stuff... if I'm going to keep it I might as well use it.
My glitter fest includes Stickles on the sweater, glitter paper for the die cut stars, and SU's Dazzling Diamonds on the Merry Christmas banner. First time use of the banner.
I put the whole cat on the second card. Cut out and popped up on a snowflake-embossed card base which was laying around all embossed and waiting to be used. Whenever possible I reach for the spare parts so they don't add up to mountainous proportions. Cut the "merry" die from purple glitter paper and added sparkle to the sweater, but not as much on this one.
Wink of Stella on the stars.
