2022 Cat Lovers Hop (Day 3) - Stamp On It

Hi, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome three new followers - Laurie Black, Michele K Henderson, and Mary Holshouser - thank you so much for joining me!   I already follow Michele, but if Laurie and Mary could please leave a link to your blog or social media in the comments below, I will hop over and follow you too!   

Today is Day 3 of the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop, and I'm guest designing again!  Woot, woot!  Have you joined the hop yet?  If not, what are you waiting for?  It's the place to be for cat lovers - you won't want to miss it!  Thank you to Janis at Her Peaceful Garden for organizing the hop for the 8th year - it's definitely a highlight of my annual crafting schedule as Janis makes it fun for everyone!  Check out the Daily Games and get to know your fellow cat lovers!  

We're about mid-way through the hop now, and I've been so impressed with all of the adorable cat-themed inspiration in the link-up!  Hop on over and see for yourself!

Today I am sharing a birthday card featuring one of our generous sponsors, Stamp On It!  

Products used:
Stamps (available in digital or unmounted and cling-mounted stamps):  

I used the digital versions of these stamps.  I coloured the Lemonade Cat with markers and fussy-cut.  I printed the sentiment and cut the cardstock to 4" x 5.25".  I die-cut the scalloped circle window and behind it placed a beach scene (Digital Scrapbook).  I adhered a die-cut palm tree as well as the kitty and then affixed the panel to a white card base.  

I had a scrap of the beach scene paper left over so I finished the inside of the card:

This cute kitty is Stamp On It Cool Cat with Shades by Eureka! Stamps.  I used the digital image but it is also available in unmounted or cling.  I coloured the image with markers, fussy-cut, and adhered along with the scrap of beach scene paper.  There's plenty of room inside the card to stamp a greeting and/or write a message. 

Thank you to Stamp On It for sponsoring the Cat Lovers Hop again this year!
