Kitty Love Tag 1

Hello, everyone!  Long time no see!  We've had a rough month here but hopefully things are looking up!   Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Megan J - thank you for joining me!

Today I have three tags to share, and they all feature kitties!  Below is my first tag; I will share each tag in separate blog posts.  I think these three cats resemble my kitties!  I actually made my tags earlier this month, but this is the first opportunity I've had to share them.

StampsSTAMPlorations Purrfectly Pawsome (tabby cats and embossed sentiment), STAMPlorations Pets (small white cat), Fiskars Friends Furever (meow word), Your Next Stamp Jessica's Kitten (pawprint on background), Honeybee Stamps Curious Kitties (fishbone and pawprint on charms)
Dies:  MFT Stitched Traditional Tags Stax, My Creative Time Tag Die Layers (rikrak), Reverse Confetti Hang-ups (heart), Our Daily Bread Designs Cats and Dogs (charms)
Stencil:  Simon Says Stamp Repeated Hearts
Ink:  Background (Distress Oxides - Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Fired Brick, Festive Berries), stamping (Lawn Fawn Jet Black, Versamark)
Other:  Ranger white embossing powder, eyelet

To make the background, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxides.

I added hearts using a stencil and then stamped some pawprints.

Below are the featured stamps, but I also used several tiny stamps from other sets (see supplies list). I stamped the kitties on white, coloured pale pink on their ears, and fussy-cut.  Next I heat-embossed the sentiment in white on black and fussy-cut. The tiny charms along the bottom of my tag did not have coordinating stamps so I searched through my stash to find stamps that would work.  For the tiny cat face, I doodled it.

So glad to see you posting again, and these kitty tags are the perfect way to jump in! By coincidence, I also pulled out my Perfectly Pawsome stamp set today and made a tag. Love your pretty Distress Inked tag backgrounds so much. That little heart added at the top is such a sweet touch.
