"Meow-y Christimas" :) Since I am a cat lover and a fur baby mama to two cats, Katie and Daisy - this was fitting for me to create ! I used 5 different LF stamp sets for this card! Winter in the Park, A Birdie Told Me, Harold's ABC's, Hats off to you, and Critters in the Burbs. I used my favorite dies for my cards - the Femme Frames from Mama Elephant, and I started by stamping on the smaller panel the light posts, and the park bench. I actually did some masking, but after I paper pieced my kitty, I realized I really didn't need to. No biggie! I stamped out some snowflakes from the Winter in the Park set and white embossed it, and then added some Tumbled Glass Distress ink to bring out the snow flakes. One of my favorite techniques is emboss resist!
Then, I started working on paper piecing my kitty cat, and the Santa hat. By this point, my kitty is pretty festive!!
I started working on my sentiment, which is as you see is a customized sentiment. I stamped and die cut one of the speech bubbles from A Birdie Told me, and used Harold's ABC's and stamped out my sentiment - "Meow-y Christmas!". I added some Liquid Applique to the park bench and ground to add extra texture and fun. I also added some Wink of Stella to the bows on the lights, and kitty's hat.
I die cut the largest scalloped frame from Femme Frames from some pattern paper from the Peace, Joy, Love 6x6 pad, and then adhered my panel to the patterned paper, and then adhered that to my black stock card base.
Fun huh!! Well - its time to send you off to your next stop along the hop to the talented Heidi! :)
