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.

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 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.
