Kitty Gift Stack

Hi, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Wombat - thank you for joining me!

Today I'm sharing a Christmas shaker card! The kitty stamp is from The Cat's Pajamas called The New Nice. I coloured it with watercolour markers, added some highlights with a white gel pen, fussy-cut, and added googly eyes.


Do you see the cute little circle kitty?  I made it, and it was easy!  I used a 1" circle punch to cut the image and placed an epoxy circle sticker over it!  I bought a digital collage sheet of cute kitty circle images from an Etsy seller called The Digital Chick so I'll be making lots more of these epoxy circle kitties for my cards!


Here are the other products used:
  • Sentiment stamp:  Newton's Nook - Newton's Holiday Mischief
  • Embossing folder:  Taylored Expressions Winter Flurry
  • Dies: Waltzingmouse Stamps Stitched Scalloped Rectangles, Nellie's Multiframe Rectangles
  • Patterned paper: Lawn Fawn - Snow Day, Peace Joy Love
  • Glitter cardstock:  Dollarama
  • Ribbon: DL.ART Christmas Red
  • Accents:  Sequins, charms, stars, all from my stash

I was inspired  by this sketch at Mojo Monday #455:

Such a cute card and kitty image. And, I love that you made it a shaker. I should try one sometime but I find it mostly too time consuming for me as I am always a quick and easy type of stamper.

weim house said...

Awesome! Thanks for inspiring us! and for the reminder to think about making christmas cards! I usually try to make a couple of cards a month but have not made one.... I'm glad to have the rain, then I get to "play with the clutter" but I also have to use the days that it is cool to go get food! We left T home in the big pen for Cody's grad, she barked the whole time! It was warm that day but not enough for her to over heat that bad! Anyway! I have a card awaiting finishing then I need 3 more to make then maybe I can do some Christmas! Thanks again for inspiring!

Carrie Sheridan said...

This turned out so amazing! I saw it over on my blogger feed and had to come take a closer look. Love the epoxy kitty embellishment you handmade, and those googly eyes on that cat are so cute! Just a phenomenal Christmas card!

Brenda said...

Love your take on the sketch and it's a shaker also. Love that you used Sprinkle as your image! It makes your epoxy embellie even more perfect. Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Cat's Pajamas TCP Tuesday Challenge!

Oh I just LOVE this one! Thank you so much for showing how to make an epoxy sticker embellishment! I sooo want to try this! :)

Chi Cr said...

I found some on Ebay that said they were made in the USA and were made of Urethane, so they won't yellow. Although, he has them listed as epoxy, because that is what everyone knows them as. I will try them and try to remember to post on my blog how they did! Thanks for the inspiration! I am always seeing cute little images that I'd like to put on something!
