A Cool Cat!

Well it has been a day for colouring in cats. When I saw the challenge at Just Add Ink Challenge #358 for this week I thought I could incorporate some faux stitching in to my card using some Lawn Fawn dies. I have pulled out the sewing machine a few times and attempted to stitch on my cards but I must admit my skills are very limited. Sewing is on my list of things to actually learn how to do but I still have horrible memories of making a pair of boxer shorts back in high school that didn’t quite end up looking like boxer shorts. Someday I will have to find a very patient teacher. So for now I will stick to the faux stitching.

One Cool Cat card

How cute is this chubby little cat?! I’m so pleased I finally got my hands on this super stamp set from MFT! I’ve simply coloured him with Copic Markers. For my stitching I positioned my strips of stitching dies where I wanted them so the sentiment would fit and then stuck them with a little washi tape before running them through my Cuttlebug.

Thanks for visiting today. Em x
