Purrfect Birthday

It's Tuesday, so it's time to share a project created for Topflight Stamps! Have you checked out the wonderful new stamps, dies, and stencils from Heffy Doodle that are now available at TFS? If not, you should remedy that immediately! Actually, while you're visiting TFS, you should check out the "new" category since there's a TON of great new products!

But I digress. Being a certified crazy cat lady, I had to have the Purrfect Day Clear Stamp set to add to my extensive collection of cat stamps. BTW, it's a good thing that I don't have as many cats as I have cat stamps. If I did, there'd be no room for us in the house! Oops. Digressed again. This great Purrfect Day Clear Stamp set has twenty (20) stamps, including five (5) cats, a cat tree, cat toys, cat dishes, and several sentiments. 

Here's my card, which uses all five cat stamps, the cat tree, the mouse cat toy, and a sentiment from the  Purrfect Day Clear Stamp set. I also used the Roundabout Sentiments Clear Stamp Set with the matching Curved Banner Die

  3. Using the Stamp Platform (or a stamp positioner), position each cat on the tree as desired, ink the stamp with Memento ink, and stamp onto the image panel. 
  4. Position the mouse toy so that it's dangling from the paw of one of the cats, ink, and stamp.
