I knew I wanted to use a Penny Black cat stamp for my card and decided on this
cute one called "Cat Bath", then added a couple of cute mice from the
set "Micey Day" and also used one of
Lavinia's Dandelion silhouette stamps to
create the garden scene. I'm sorry the other two stamps are old and I don't
have a link, but you may be able to find them on eBay.
On the bottom portion I used a mask to ink up a hill with
Shabby Shutters Distress ink
and then stamped
Shabby Shutters ink. This stamp has a straight stem, but it's easy to bend
since it's a clear stamp, and that is what I did here.
The sentiment is from Penny Black set
, which is one of my
favorites. I especially love this specific stamp from the set for "just
because" type cards and think it works so well with cute critters!
I added a tiny
bit of patterned paper from my stash and used a stitched border
stamp along the edges. This stamp is from a retired set by Whimsy Stamps.
Unfortunately I didn't find something similar to link to, but do like
this set by The Stamps of Life
stamp around the edges, and you can always add faux stitches free hand using
a fine tip pen or marker. A few years ago I loved using my sewing machine,
but since re-organizing my craft room, I no longer have a permanent spot for
the sewing machine and I'm too lazy to get it out and set up each time I
want to use it.
The cute mice were an afterthought. I felt like the card was too plain on the right side, so I stamped them on a scrap piece of Bristol Vellum
, colored and fussy cut. A Wink of Stella
clear glitter brush was used on the flowers and the cat's collar.
Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to stop by!
