The cats meow...

In class last Tuesday afternoon we made 4 cards all the same but in 4 colours. The ladies said they loved doing this as when they got to the last one they felt they knew what they were doing! Then we made an envelop box with the envelop punch board. Although I love the colours of halloween, orange and black I am not a fan and its not big around where I live, being very rural. But I thought the cat punch would be very useful. Its certainly been a hit with the Tuesday ladies.

The eclipse technique has done the rounds lately with the big letter dies, I haven't got these but one day hope to buy. I thought I would be able to use something else to create a card using this technique, the cat seemed ideal.  First I stamped the bush from Awesomely Artistic. (This stamp set is so well used, each little stamp pops up in so many places.) Then I punched the cat from the stamped flowers. I then punched two more cards in the matching colour and stuck the three cats together. Finally placing the cat back in its whole in the stamped bush! Once I had done the one, I kept the card in one colour I thought a pack of four each in a different colour was a good idea. I started with the Peek a Boo Peach then moved onto the Flirty Flamingo, a colour I now love, then one in Dapper Denim a colour I have hardly used and finally Rich Razzleberry as that is one of my favourites.
I have to admit that as I haven't bought the stamp set to match the punch, the cat faces are hand drawn. They have improved the more of these cards I have made!

Love these cards, so cute.
