Meowy Christmas

Hi everyone! Well, we’re beginning the month of July. Can you believe it?! A new challenge has launched this morning over at the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you for MLCCB #12 – July Anything Christmas Goes! I sure do love fun folds and I finally got around to trying a book fold. I’ve had the instructions printed in my tutorial folder for quite some time which I believe I got out of a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter. I thoroughly enjoyed this one! ;)


I used the Simon Says Stamp Christmas Cats stamps and die set that I’ve had in my stash for a couple years and have never used. Not sure how that happened, lol! I kept with the traditional red and green Christmas colors. I stamped all the images and sentiments from the set in black ink on ivory cardstock and then colored the images with my Studio 71 alcohol markers.


I arranged the colored images and sentiments on the front and the inside ‘book.’


Here’s an overhead view of the construction. Really loving how this turned out. I see more of these in my future, lol!


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla cardstock, Stampin’ Up This Christmas specialty DSP

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Studio 71 alcohol markers- E10, E17, R6, R12, R18, N2, N5, B15, BG3, BG7, BG8, BG12, Y11

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s fun fold and will link up a Christmas project with us this month! Thanks so much for stopping by today and we’ll see you again soon! ;)

Scrappy hugs,

Meowy Christmas

Hi everyone! Well, it’s November 1st and that means a few posts from me this morning, lol! I’m guest designing again this month over at Your Scrapbook Place and I’m stoked to share my GD inspiration project for the November Anything Goes challenge going live this morning! I created a fun sparkly meowy Christmas card! Hubby and I are ‘crazy cat people’ and this image is one of my favorites from The East Wind which is this month’s sponsor! Come on over and play with us!


I used my favorite stitched dies and angled the die cuts. I attached the focal image with tiny staples and added some Dot Sparklers in each corner.


I pulled out the fun Snow Marker for the pom-poms on his collar which added some great dimension!


I had the purrfect stamp set in my stash to go with this image, so I put it to good use, lol! Love how this turned out!


I’d love to enter this purrfect little card into the following challenges:
