Cats2love Fun with Laura Williams



Hello, My Friends!

Today I'm sharing a blog post from one of my Rock Star Design Team members Laura Williams!

from Laura:

Me and cats. . .we aren't fond of each other. I'm just not a pet person. I'm allergic to cats, which probably has something to do with my feelings about them! BUT. . .that all being said, how cute is this fluffy new cat from The Stamps of Life!? Thankfully kitty cat stamps don't make me sneeze, because I had a blast making some cards with cat2stamp!

First up, I diecut a circle from the front of my card, and adhered a panel of patterned paper inside. I stamped and diecut the cat from patterned paper. I added some die cut flowers, and a sentiment to the front.
Sweet and simple - it's the way I roll!

In this second photo, you can see the inside of the card. I added a few more diecut flowers, plus another sentiment. 


On the next card, I added some of the cute accessories with my kitty. For some reason, I just think that kitty dish is adorable. And the coordinating dies make pulling a card together so quickly! (I'm happy I didn't have to trim around all that fluffy fur!)

This last one is my favorite though. . . I just love it! I just played around with the twine until it looked tangled up around the cat, and then I added dots of glue to secure it.

(I just love subtle patterned paper like this - those polka-dots are a fun detail on the cat! These papers are from DCWV.) I added some die cut flowers, and a sentiment to the front.

This last one is my favorite though. . . .I had this new twine from Close To My Heart, and with the spool patterned paper in the background, I just love it! I just played around with the twine until it looked tangled up around the cat, and then I added dots of glue to secure it. This patterned paper is from Carta Bella's Sew Lovely collection.




Happy Stamping!

All of the cards are so cute. I am waiting for my daughter to get older and we may get a pet. I don't know what kind yet.

I love that you stamped this sweet kitty on patterned paper and if the die wasn't there....it would take an hour to fussy cut around that adorable image. Love the way you adhered the string and the spools of thread paper is absolutely purrrfect! Those accessories are just icing on the cake for this super cute stamp and die set. Thanks for sharing your fabulous ideas!

All three cards are absolutely adorable and I will be copying them as soon as my stamp set and dies arrive.
Thank you for the inspiration!

These are all PURR-fectly darling! I think I have used that joke already, but I do love these! SUPER cute--especially for someone who isn't crazy for cats! :) HUGS! :) Mynn xx

This post is funny because I'm not a pet person either and when I saw the stamp set I thought "Shoot, what am I going to do with this"? The cards are great and at least its a cute cat and I have lots of little ones in the family I can make cards for. This is only my second month as a Card Club member (I've been in the Die Club for awhile) and all the extras that come with the set are great.
