Cool Cat

Hello!

The Stamping Techs at Technique Tuesday were inspired by this photo provided by our DT leader Teri:


I am a knitter, so of course I had to go with the knitting theme.  I used Knit Wits, Cat's Meow, and Tree-mendous stamp sets from Technique Tuesday to make this card:


 I used a border from the Knit Wit set to make the knitted pattern on the bottom of the card.  And I decided to have the kitty wear one of the hats.  The hat image actually had ear flaps, but I cut them off cause it looked kinda goofy.  Actually, I still think it looks kinda goofy...   a cat wearing a hat.  Haha.

Then, while I was making my card...  I had another idea, so I decided to get it out of my head:


I used the same border stamp from Knit Wits using the ink colors of Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Real Red.  The stamp is super easy to line up!  The cat is from Cat's Meow, and the mouse and sentiment are from   Little Peanut.

Thanks for visiting today!!

    1. Yes, it is baker's twine! It is a holiday color, but I thought it worked perfect here!

  20. Kris, I absolutely LOOOOOVE these cards. I am partial to the sock monkey too. My 23 y.o. daughter has lived with being called "Monkey" all her life. She is now expecting a baby in May and has requested a sock monkey. How neat would it be to be able to present it to her with a card made from one of your card ideas? Whether I won the monkey or not, I'll have to make one up as a gift. Thanks for the ideas and hard work.
