Cute Friendship Card Featuring Nine Lives Cat Punch #AllOccasion #SecretsToStamping #StampinUp



Happy New Year!! I can’t believe that we are starting a new year, can you? They just keep going faster and faster! Well, the one good thing about that little truth is that it means it’s time for the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration (January 3rd)! By now, you should have the new catalog (No? Email me and I will send one to you!). I was so glad to see the new Nine Lives stamp set since it has the coordinating Cat Punch. I love all animals but am particularly fond of kitties! This one is going to get lots of ink from me! I used the sketch from our brand new challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. This sketch will really get your creativity going. I hope you will get into your craft room and play along!!





Cute Friendship Card Featuring Nine Lives Cat Punch #AllOccasion #SecretsToStamping #StampinUp


My Secrets to Making This Nine Lives Project

  • This card was fun to make, using Nine Lives and the coordinating Cat Punch. The background is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty designer paper. I cut Real Red cardstock to the same size and glued the lattice patterned paper down.
  • Black and Whisper White cardstocks were cut with Layering Circle framelits and the “meow” stamp was inked in Real Red and stamped.
  • Did you notice the new Rectangle Stitched Framelit around the sentiment? This framelit collection is going to be a huge seller so I really recommend that you get them early.
  • The little finishing touches are the real red enamel bow from Santa’s Workshop (too cute!) and the bling from Black mini sequins and metallic thread.
