FURRY FELINE

Today is the first Friday of the month. Do you know what that means? It means it is time to win an entire month's releases from Clear Dollar Stamps. Wanna know how? Just play in this month's CLEARLY INSPIRED CHALLNGE #16. Just click on that link for all the details.

So...this month's theme is CUTE AND FURRY. I pulled out this cute Christmas set MEOWY CHRISTMAS. So if you have Clear Dollar Stamps....pull them out and play. If you don't....play with what you have.

I took my back panel of Red Velvet Cake CS and scored at 1" intervals then stamped with the cute little ornaments that come with this set with Momento Rich Cocoa. I sponged around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain. Then paper pierced. Pretty simple.

For my oval, I used my scallop and plain oval dies. For the oval I embossed and sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Then I colored and sponged my image, cut it out and popped it up.

I put the sentiment MEOWY CHRISTMAS inside in red ink along with another cute image from the set in the corner and on the outside of the envelope.

This is a simple card for Christmas.

Hope you are inspired...now come play with us.
