Hey there and welcome to the final month of the Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop. While this hop group is ending, another is beginning next month, the Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop, and just in case you were wondering, I will be participating in that hop too! yay!
Our theme for September is "Holiday Catalog Favorites". Right now you are at my blog Carol Payne Stamps. When you are done checking out my project, simply click on the name below mine on the list at the end of this post and you can continue on to see all rest of the wonderful projects we have prepared for you! Currently you are at Carol Payne.
For my project I used the Watercolor Christmas stamp set that coordinates with the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit. While I have the kit, I didn't use it for my project today. Instead I combined it with Be Merry Designer Series Paper (Annual Catalog) and the Spooky Cat Bundle.
I created two versions, stamping the bow from Cookie Cutter Christmas in Real Red on my first card, then a Garden Green bow on the second card. I think I like the Garden Green bow best. Which one do you like better?
I chose the candy-striped print from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper for my background. I'm trying, though not always successfully, to simplify my creations so they are easier for you to duplicate.
I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Christmas with Real Red ink before punching with the Cat Punch. I ove the kitty's tail tangled up with the flourish-y words! After I punched out the cat I punched two more from Basic Black card stock to layer underneath the stamped kitty to complete the Eclipse technique.
I don't really make much Halloween stuff, but I had to purchase the Spooky Cat stamp set just so I could stamp the kitty's face! The bow from Cookie Cutter Christmas fits perfectly under his chin!
I used all Watercolor Christmas images and sentiment on the inside. Even if you don't buy the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit, the Watercolor Christmas stamps are a must have!
The red-bowed kitty:
