STAMPlorations spring release - purrfectly pawsome


Welcome to day 4 of the STAMPlorations Spring Release. The four-legged friends are the star of the release and today it's all about the cats. May I introduce Purrfectly Pawsome.


I have a confession to make. I'm not a cat person. I grew up with dogs.  One of my cat stories (besides the time my eyes totally swelled up after I'd been petting a friend's cat) goes back to my babysitting days. I walked into a dark kitchen, reaching for the light switch as I came through the doorway and as the light went on, down onto the counter jumped the family cat who had been perched atop the kitchen cupboards. Scared the crap outta me.

No dog has ever done that to me. Get my point?

Perhaps that cat-on-a-hot-kitchen-cupboard inspired my card design.


Basically a one-layer card. Masked and inked with Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick. Added more ink through the Zen Hearts stencil. Stamped the cats and gave them touches of orange with Polychromos. Added the sentiment on a wonky scrap and added two sequins. Cuz pink.

Makes for a cute card, eh? But I'm still not a cat person :)

Shery's offering generous prizes during this release. Leave comments on all the release posts this week on the STAMP blog and the DT blogs to be in the running for a $25 GC or all five new stamp sets from this release! Check out what my teamies created over at the STAMPlorations blog.

Sorry for your bad cat experience! I don't own
either a cat or a dog, but love them both just
the same (our neighbor's cat has adopted us, I
think lol). Your card is lovely!
