Cattails & Cat



Cat was happy to be the star of the show, so I used the Cat Punch with Very Vanilla Cardstock to make my mischievous cat. I know he is mischievous, because he has caused trouble on a number of my projects. Today, he didn’t want stripes or spots, but allowed me to give him definition by using a Sponge Dauber and Crumb Cake Ink around his body.


He insisted on hiding in cattails, because he loves catching mice there. Plus, he argued that he’s a cat, and has a cat tail, and thought it was a great play on words. I agreed, because I was anxious to use the new cattail die from the Friendly Silhouettes Die Set. The new Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper seemed to make Cat happy for his cattails, and it does look pretty, doesn’t it?

The same DSP was used for the background, which I cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die, and placed on a Crumb Cake card base. Cat is sitting on a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock, cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die, and embossed with the Corrugated Folder. He thought that would add to his camouflage, and I like the dimension it adds.


Cat refused to say anything but “meow,” even though the stamp set has other great sentiments. Oh well, he does look cute hiding among the cattails. Can you see the mouse?


Thanks for stopping by. I’m sure Cat will ask me if you were able to see him, and thinks everyone should have some cattails. Clicking on the picture in my Product List will take you right to the Friendly Silhouettes Dies!
