Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!
For my first project I just *had* to use this cute cat that is playing dress-up! I love two-step images like this because it is so easy to use multiple colors and set the stage for your card!
It all started with the Wine Bottle Tag die. I cut it from Simply Chartreuse cardstock and cut the top off to accomodate my card. One of the wonderful things about the Dangled Stars die is that you can trim it to the size you need, as I did here to fit on the tag. I die-cut the stars separately from silver sparkle fun foam and adhered them in place with Glossy Accents.
I die-cut the cat along with the hat and stamped them with the coordinating images, all from Superstition. I love how detailed the cape portion is, it looks so realistic!
A speech bubble was in order, so I die-cut one from Winter Wisteria cardstock using the Bubble Talk die. I heat embossed the sentiment from Happy Spooky Halloween using White Filigree Embossing Powder.
This punny sentiment that is included in Superstition was the perfect thing to finish off the card!
I used a Smokey Shadow card base along with a Smokey Shadow Bitty Dot card front to mount everything onto.
Now, don't let these cats fool you! They are for much more than just Halloween! Here I have created a little something that is perfect as an encouragement card.
I stamped this pouncing cat silhouette in New Leaf so it looks like she is getting into a brwon paper bag full of yarn! The yarn images are from the previously released Knit Bits set, added in Tropical Teal. I made sure to add the yarn in a darker color so that I could stamp a portion of it over the cat image and have it show up well.
The bag (from Superstition) was die-cut from Classic Kraft cardstock and then stamped in the same color ink using the coordinating stamp. I added "life" to the bag with Canyon Clay ink, followed by this sentiment underneath in True Black, both of which are from Purls of Wisdom.
To complete the card I added rickrack die-cut from New Leaf Bitty Dot paper. Everything was adhered to a Soft stone card base.
