I just HAD to use the NEW "Company of Cats" Stamp Set and thought it would be FUN to Die Cut a Balloon from it!! I Stamped and Embossed the "PERFECT" Sentiment from the "Newton Loves Cake" Stamp Set inside the Balloon Opening!! It just makes me SMILE!! ;)
I was thinking of a Where's Waldo Style Card!! So I added a Party Hat to one of the Cat Images and wanted it to be a game to find it!!??  Stamped and Embossed the Party Hat Image, which is also from the "Newton Loves Cake" Set and I used the coordinating "Newton Loves Cake" Die Set to Die Cut it out then adhered it to the Cat!! I think it turned out SO FUN!! I used the Frames & Flags Die Set to finish off the Layers and adhered everything to a Grey Grout Card Base!!

                              "Woof Pack" Stamp Set!!
                  Let's take a look at AWESOME New Products!!
SQUEAL!! How AWESOME is this NEW Stamp!!?? I wanted to show how you can use this Image to Highlight certain Images!! I wanted to create a Shaker Card, MY FAVORITE!! =) So I Stamped the Image in MFT Grey Grout Ink onto some Distress Watercolor Paper!! Then I took the MFT Stitched Arch STAX Dies and Die Cut my Window opening right into the Stamped Image!! I Die Cut the Scalloped Frame from Black Cardstock using the Frames & Flags Die Set!! I centered the Stamped panel onto the Scalloped Frame and adhered the Negative Arch in place on the Scalloped Frame!! I cut a piece of Vellum and Stamped and Embossed my Sentiment, masking parts of it and Embossing it WoW Glitter Embossing Powder!! I adhered the Vellum to the Window Opening and adhered some FUN Foam to create my Shaker Frame!! I pilled all of the Pretty Pink Posh Sequins onto the Negative Arch attached to the Scalloped Frame and then placed the Stamped Window Front on top centering the Negative Arch up to the Window opening!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the seamless Design of the Image!! It looks SO NEAT in real life!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the Image again in Black!! I used my Copic Markers to color the Image and then added some Black and White Gel Pen Details and some Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer Pen for some Sparkle!! I Fussy Cut the Images out and used a Black Soot Distress Marker to finish off the edges for a seamless look and adhered it to the Stamped Window lining the Images up!!
