Cozy Cat


I am sneaking in under the wire to enter the CAS Sketch Challenge at The Paper Players.  It is a great sketch that would work well for any card.  I pulled out some NEW stamps and papers to make my card!  This is a little peak at one of the NEW upcoming stamp sets, Cozy Cat.  A super cute A size stamp set.  The set includes the cat shown here and three sayings.  I paper pieced the cat with paper from the upcoming Claire paper line.  I did my best to make a little kitty scene complete with flooring, baseboards and wallpaper!  Here is a look at the original sketch design-


For the details on my Cozy Cat, I stamped the image multiple times on pattern paper and then cut out the various pieces and adhered together.  Close To My Heart is introducing new micro tip scissors  that make fussy cutting a breeze!  They are now my go to pair of scissors.  I plan on getting a spare pair....not sure I can live without them if I were to misplace them!  Here is close up at the paper piecing.  




I popped up a few layers for added dimension.  A little bling on the collar finishes off the card!

What an ADORABLE card! Love the 'floor', love the cat pillow! I'm not a cat person and I don't have this stamp but you sure do make me want to get it! :) Have a GREAT weekend!

This is very cute. Love the way you pulled the patterned paper into everything, but especially the pillow top.
