Jingle Cat


Hello and welcome to Day 4 of our September Rubber Stamp & Die Release Showcase!

 On Wednesday (19 September) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, Shapeology dies, Whimsy Designer Paper packs and Shape EZ templates. From then until 25 September the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop! Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw


I am so excited to be part of today's hop. For my card today I  used the adorable stamp "Jingle Cat" illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. What a cutie!!


I stamped the cat using Memento Tuxedo black ink, then colored using my faber castel polychromos pencils. It's hard to tell in the photo, but I have stamped/colored the head twice, then cut out and added with dimentionals.

The "Deck the Halls.." sentiment is from the new stamp set "Holiday Carols Notables 4". The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is by Penny Black.

I used papers from my stash, embellished with the new "Holly and Berries" die, a red button, some twine and ribbon. I have also added some diamond dust glitter to the hat, and gold glitter to the jingle bells.
To finish it off I sewed around the edges.

I am entering my card to the following challenges:
