A simple and sweet cat to welcome fall

Posted by on Sep 13, 2017 in Cat Punch, Holiday Catalog 2017, Painted Autumn, Spooky Cat Bundle | 2 comments

There is this one product in every catalog that I just am over the moon about. Then I get it in my hands and it is just like life was ment to be.  The cat punch in the Holiday Catalog is defiantly a keeper and everyone must have it.  Don’t give me I’m not a cat person. It really does not matter of you are a cat person! The real question is are you an adorable cuteness person! I think we all love adorable cuteness!!!

Spooky Cat Bundle

Let’s take a moment and talk about this adorable bundle before we get to my card for the day.  This is such a fun bundle not only do you get the cat punch, the stamp set has a great cat that is full of Halloween words. The owl is awesome.  And you get eyes for the cat. So you can make a cat any color you would like and give him eyes.  I defiantly suggest that you not only get the cat punch but that you bundle the punch with the stamp set and save 10%.  It is well worth it!!!

I love these adorable treat boxes from the Holiday Catalog. Look at how simple is to make awesome Halloween treats!!

So, I love all the Halloween goodness of the black cat! Or little black cat is the epitome of a scaredy cat.  Anyway, I wanted to do something that was not Halloween but, still fall wonderfulness! I decided on a simple watercolor wash and a fall cat punched with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper

I guess you have figured out by now that I love this paper! I promise I will use something different soon! I just can’t get enough of Painted Autumn!!!!

  • The watercolor  is Night of Navy on watercolor paper. It is a very simple wash with lots of water added to the ink.
  • The cat is punched with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. Then I punched out three cats in Cajun Craze. I glued all of them together making one cat
  • The sentiment is from??? You guessed it Merry Café. I masked the sentiment to only use the Hello Fall
  • The final touch was a few sequins from the Bright Sequin Assortment

I love this side shot! It shows you how nicely the punch stacks to make a very special element for a card! Truely, card making could not get any easier. Punch a cat four times, glue them together, add a sentiment all on a simple watercolor background!! The absolute final touch was to add matching Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper to the flap of the envelope!

Yesterday, I shared a sweet pouch box that is perfect for a set of cards. You can see the pouch box here. Today, I’m sharing the cards that will go into the pouch as a gift! I used the same products to make coordinating cards.  The Merry Café is defiantly a favorite stamp set.

Merry Café

I love how this set coordinates with the Coffee Café bundle in the annual catalog.  The little perk up even coordinates with the small coffee cup die. What fun!

 I hope everyone is safe and sound after all the whether we have been having.  So many in Texas who are trying to recover and in Florida. As well as much of Georgia and South Carolina. Then the fires up north and in the west. It has been a rough month.   My thoughts are with each of you in these areas.
The fall is quickly approaching! Happy Fall the season of pumpkin spice latte. We all know someone who this sentiment is perfect for!  I know I sure know a few pumpkin spice latte lovers.  I personally don’t know what all the fuss is about( shush don’t tell)  Have a great day my friends
