Stampin’ Up! Love Cats Country Gingham CAS Card Sneak Peek

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well.  I’ve been working in my craft room – this is “Catalog Swap” week.  You know – when I pull the retiring items off my shelves and get the NEW catalog goodies in their place!  I’m making labels and getting my magnetic sheets loaded with Dies!  Busybusybus!y!

So – sitting down with the adorable Love Cats stamp set was a nice restful little break!  Have I told you that I am a cat person?  I love Finn and I love my ponies but…kitties are my happy place!  Which means that the Love Cats stamp set HAD to have a spot on the shelves!  For this one, I paired it with the new Country Cottage 6″ x 6″ DSP – ALSO from the new Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog (available to you on 5 Jan!).  Take a look-see:

I borrowed some inspiration for this one from the samples in the catalog – don’t forget about that AMAZING source of inspiration, y’all!

I started by matting a piece of new Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ DSP (one of the Sweet Sorbet designs)….

…on a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal.  Then I adhered it to the front of a Thick Basic White card base – at a jaunty angle.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Love Cats image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a smaller Basic White panel.  The Stamparatus is an invaluable tool when you want a good solid image – it lets you stamp multiple times in the exact same spot! 🙂

In the corner, I added a Love Cats sentiment in Sweet Sorbet.

I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I colored the little heart that the kitty is holding using my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.

For a little bling, I added some new Adhesive-backed Milky Dots (available 5 Jan 23!) in Petal Pink and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus again to stamp a second Love Cats image on a Basic White panel.  I used a little sticky note to mask off the hearts and stamped just the cat in Tuxedo Black.  When I had it as dark as I wanted, I used my Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Write Marker to color – and then stamp – the hearts.  I filled the one open heart with the Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into the Thick Basic White cardbase and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the same cat and hearts on the front…

…and a little more Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How sweet is this Love Cats set??  I love the three images…
