Kitty & Poinsettias

Good morning and happy Monday!

I've got two cards to share today.  The first is for the MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge.  The stamps are from three different sets but they all work perfectly together.  During the most recent Ellen Hutson die sale I broke down and bought matching dies for almost all of my MFT cat and dog stamps.  I've generally resisted buying matching dies since I figure I can fussy cut the images and use that money for other goodies but given how often I use these stamps I decided it was a worthwhile investment.  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (White) Papertrey Ink, (Lucky Limeade, Bermuda Bay) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Cat & speech bubble from I Knead You, Heart from Umbrella, Sentiment from Smitten Kitten) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukeniko, (Calypso Coral) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Stitched Square Scallop Edge Frame, Fishtail Flag Frames, Cat, Speech Bubble) My Favourite Things
Markers:  (RV10, C1, C3, C5) Copic
Gems:  Recollections

Next is a card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I broke out my Brushos again and created some inked papers.  I then stamped and die cut the Essentials by Ellen images from those papers and popped them up on foam tape.  I sprinkled some gems around the sentiment and added some Buttercup Liquid Pearls to the flower centres.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Watercolor) Ranger
Stamps:  (All from Mistletoe & Holly) Essentials by Ellen
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukeniko
Dies:  (Mistletoe & Holly) Essentials by Ellen
Paint:  (Terracotta, Alizarin Crimson, Brilliant Red, Lime Green, Sea Green Brushos) Colourcraft
Other:  (Buttercup Liquid Pearls) Ranger
Gems:  Recollections

That kitty peeking over the frame made me chuckle!! (That stamp set has been on my wishlist for quite awhile - I'm going to have to break down and do it so I can copy you!) And I love the way you framed your Christmas sentiment with those bold poinsettias. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
