For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing Cat-itude Stamp Set, Paw Print Shaker Dies and the MEOW Stencil:

Cat-itude Stamp Set with paw Print Shaker Die

Here is my card:

I started out with an A2 size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock and ink blended some distress oxide inks.  I used the MEOW stencil and white embossing paste to add some texture to the card.


I used the Paw Print Shaker Die to die-cut some card stock, patterned paper and acetate sheet.  I assembled the shaker by adding some foam adhesive and used some pink sequins as my shaker element.  I adhered this piece onto my ink-blended panel.  To finish my design, I die-cut the word “meow” using the die from the Paw Print Shaker set on some glittered card stock and adhered this piece on top of the Paw Print shaker piece.  Here’s a closer look:



For my second card, I did most of the steps mentioned above but used Moonstone glimmer paste to add some texture.  I die-cut the Paw Print shaker with some colored card stock and stamped the sentiment using the Cat-itude stamp set.  This stamp set is a must-have for any cat-lovers!



To finish my design, I added some 6 mm Pink Heart Droplets by Kat Scrappiness.  Don’t  you just love the sentiments on this stamp set?  Here’s a closer look:
