About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

The Cat's Pajamas


I was looking through my drawers of old, and not used in forever, single, wood mounted stamps and came across a couple of Valentine's stamps that I'd totally forgotten. I decided to pull them out of the drawer and give them some love and ink. Since I wanted to get a card made for this week's Mojo Monday sketch, and time is running out, I used them to make this card.

I made the card 3.75" x 5.5" instead of the usual 4.25" x 5.5" for the "tall and skinny" requirement of the sketch. The background is stamped using the "heart abound" stamp with SU Strawberry Slush ink. The cat and his pajamas are stamped in Memento black and colored with Copics.

Stamps: "Heart Abound" by Rubber Stampede and "Cats Pajamas" by Uptown Rubber Stamps
Paper: SSS white, TE light red, XPress-It Blending white card stocks and ??? patterned papers (I bought some 12"x12" papers a few months ago in single sheets, brought them home and cut them into  6" squares for storage. I forgot to label them)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black and Copics
Other: Die-namics pierced fishtail flags STAX and Stitched oval dies, the Big Shot and dimensionals

Have a great Sunday evening, and if your attending any Superbowl parties, have fun.
Thanks for looking in,
