Christmas Kitten

Hi and welcome to my blog! I am showing a card I made for two challenges today - Penny Black (Embellish It) and Double Trouble (Scrapper's Gorp). There are three parts to the challenge at Double Trouble and this time I used all three - (mixed patterns, sketch and paper piecing).
The paper piecing was harder than I thought because there was a pattern on the balloon stamp. I covered the balloon design with scrap paper and then inked it up. That left just the outline of the balloon inked. Then I stamped the balloon onto snowflake patterned paper. I used washi tape and red enamel dots for my embellishments.

Stamp:  Cat - Penny Black
Embossing Folder:  Snowflakes - Cuttlebug
Die:  Labels 4 - Spellbinders
Washi Tapes
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
Red Enamel Dots
Striped Patterned Paper

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying this Christmas season!

Fabulous make April. That little kitten looks adorable sleeping with the balloon. Nice addition of the washi tape.

Oh so cute and I do love the layering of your washi tape too, you got a very good impression with your embossing!

Love your selection of GORP and the adorable kitten likes her pieced balloon... seems like quite a technique on your piecing of the balloon, but great job. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and your interpretation of TSOT sketch is perfect. Adorable and fun card.
