Hedgie Loves Kitty

Hi, everyone.  Welcome to my brand-new followers - so nice to have you here.  Today I have made a Valentine.  This sweet little Penny Black hedgie wants to give his heart to the Impression Obsession die-cut kitty.

For my backing papers I used a free exclusive member download from Crafter's Companion Club Inspire - it's free to join so why not go over and check it out.  These papers are called "Looking to Spring" - download of the month for January 2012.  I used a couple of new items on this card - the musical washi tape and the kitty die.  This is the first IO die I've owned and I am impressed with the ease of cutting - no pin-poking required to remove the cut from the die - I will definitely add more IO dies to my collection.  Here is my supplies list:

  • Stamps:  Hedgie (Penny Black "Hugs" clear stamps set), sentiment (Studio G clear stamp)
  • Dies:  Cat (Impression Obsession DIE083-K), Heart (Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Hearts)
  • Punch:  Heart (Michaels)
  • Patterned papers:  Crafter's Companion Club Inspire "Looking to Spring"
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Washi tape:  Dollarama
  • Lace:  Thrift store find
  • Marker:  Staedtler (for doodling faux stitching around the heart)
