You Never Age


It's been a long time since I played along with The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers but I couldn't resist their birthday challenge.  I adore this grumpy cat and this MFT snarky sentiment suits him perfectly.  I paper-pieced a Tim Holtz birthday hat for him which seems to have made him even more grumpy!  :)


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Rose Red, So Saffron, Bermuda Bay, Smokey Slate) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Cat) Katzelkraft, (Hat) Tim Holtz, (Sentiment from Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings 2) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Oval) My Favourite Things

Eeeeek!


 I've got another Halloween card today.  This one is for the Spooky challenge at The Paper Players.  I went for an almost one-layer card here which I very rarely do.  Despite loving CAS designs I always feel the need to pop up a few elements for some dimension.  Here I popped up the Happy Halloween sentiment and in person it makes the ghost peeking out from behind it look even cuter.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White, Black) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (Images from Happy Hauntings, Sentiment from The Last Bite) Essentials by Ellen
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Orange Twist, Tiara, Lime Rickey, Grape Crush) Catherine Pooler
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Other:  (Nuvo English Mustard Crystal Drops) Tonic
