Have a Purr-fect Day!

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm featuring some adorable stamps from Jane's Doodles! I recently won a stamp set from Jane, and I chose - you guessed it - Cats! I love this set! Thank you, Jane! This is my first experience with Jane's Doodles and they stamped beautifully! I had a lot of fun making my card!


I started with the background by white heat-embossing several of the smaller images from this set: the food dish, mouse, fish, hearts, paw print, and ball of yarn.  I used the watercolour smooshing technique with Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, and Wilted Violet Distress Inks. This is such a fun technique, and I love how it turned out!


I added some left-over glitter cardstock scraps (DCWV) to the right edge (I like the scalloped edge of the silver one - it was the leftover negative from Waltzingmouse Stitched Scalloped Rectangles). I coloured the adorable kitty with watercolor markers and fussy-cut so I could pop him up with foam tape. I die-cut a small notebook page (Taylored Expressions) from striped vellum and stamped the sentiment in black.  I finished off the card by adding a crystal paw print and several coordinating sequins.

I would like to support the following challenges: Aud Sentiments Cute plus Sentiment 1/5; Beccy's Place February AG UE; Craft Your Passion AG 1/3; Creative Inspirations AG Option Sketch UE; Creative Moments AG Option Embossing Heat or Dry 1/3; Crop StopLinky Party #13 Distress Inks available at Crop Stop here 2/5; Deep Ocean Hearts UE; DL.ART February AG UE 1/day;DL.ART Thankful Thursday Pink, Red and/or Hearts 2/3; Eureka Stamps Feathers and/or Fur 1/3; Fan-Tastic Tuesday Make it Cute 1/4; Get Creative Must Include Hearts 1/3 (number the entry);  Hiding in My Craftroom Super Scraps Saturday (scraps as mentioned above) 2/3;  Inspiration Destination AG UE; Just Keep on Creating February AG UE; Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday 1E; Love to Scrap AG 1/3; Not Just Cards AG UE; Pixie's Snippet Playground Everything on this card is actually a snippet 1/3;SUYP Cat Love UE; Simon Says Stamp Work-it Wednesday Use Something New (stamp set) 3/3 Sparkle and Sprinkle Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and/or Flocking UE; Sweet Stamps February AG UE; The Daily Marker 30-Day Colouring Challenge Day 17; The Pencil Case More than One (colour, sequin) 1/2; Vintage Stamping Splatters and Drips 2/3; Whimsy Stamps Inspiration AG 1/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w.

Dear Miss Kitty...
You turned out to be my 250th Follower, and I am so excited. Blogger took away a bunch of my followers over a period of time as they did to lots of other people which upset me terribly because I had made a little gift for my 250th. Before I could look into who it was, that person disappeared. Since then I have been waiting for #250 to roll around again. Well, cutie pie, you are it, and I cannot wait to send you your little present. My email is genier39atgmaildotcom. Please drop me a note with your mailing address, and I will get it into the mail. Am going upstairs now to wrap it. Again, thanks so much for being a follower. Genie
