The Cat's Meow with Pamela

Good morning everyone! This is Pamela here with Mama Elephant with a fun little stationery set that I created using the newly released stamp sets and creative cuts.

When I first saw the individual kitties from The Cat's Meow, I thought they would make some adorable mini bookmarks! The first thing I did was stamp out the individual kitty on a long strip of paper and had it partially cut. Don't run the entire die through the paper, but instead, leave a little bit so the kitty isn't fully cut.
  DS - The Cat's Meow - 1 

Next, using my fine liner, I extended the the cat down the paper. Using a craft knife, I carefully cut out the long strip of cardstock. 

  DS - The Cat's Meow - 2 

I coloured the bookmark in with my copics. Be sure to extend the colouring down through the bookmark. You'll see what I mean when you look at my project photo.

  DS - The Cat's Meow - 3 

To ensure that the bookmark can withstand the toughest wear and tear, I cut out 2 more pieces of cardstock and adhered them together. I decided to go for coloured cardstock for the bottom so it's not entirely white. 

  DS - The Cat's Meow - 4 

Next, I needed a card to go with this little gift, so I coloured and cut out the kitty using Favor Bag Accessory and adhered it to the front of the card base.

  DS - The Cat's Meow - 5 

I combined the Number It creative cuts, Index Card creative cuts and the sentiment from Monster Jam to finish off the card.

  DS - The Cat's Meow - 6 

Lastly, I stamped that gang of kitties onto my kraft envelope and coloured in a few of the kitties using my pencil crayons. It's one big kitty fest here!

  DS - The Cat's Meow - 7 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
