{Paper Smooches} You're Purrrty


Kim shared this card on the Paper Smooches Blog on Thursday. It features a partial sentiment and one of the darling little cats from Nine Lives. I also used three new dies and a stamp set that will be available for purchase on February 1st. The floral background was cut from the Notebook Basic Die, the banner was cut using one of the Streamers Dies and stamped with its coordinating stamp set by the same name. The second half of the sentiment was created using the Alphawhimsy Dies and stamped with its coordinating stamp set Graffiti which some of you already own! If you look at the close up photo or click on it, you can see that I stamped the Graffiti alphabets on the dies with light grey ink to give them just a bit of dimension and also to coordinate with the shading on the cat and sponging on the edges of the card.


This means there are only thirteen more days until February 1st! Are you counting down? What have been your favourite sneak peeks so far and what do you plan to buy on the first? Tell me, tell me! :D

So cute, Emily!! That little cat cracks me up--beautiful coloring, too. I love that you showed so many of the dies.

This is ADORABLE! I love that cat! And it may be a subtle touch to stamp on the dies, but it kicks it up a big notch!
I have definitely got to start a fund so I can just buy it all. Crazy how I fall in love with every release - and now dies too? I'm going to guess that the banners are going to be tops for me, for the dies....as for stamps, just add them all to the longest wish list ever ;)

Jess said...

Love that you inverted the notebook die. So cute!!! I am excited for all things Paper Smooches. They are adorable! :-)

Jen W. said...

Your colouring on the cat is amazing and I love the paper you used for the notebook die. Super sweet! Nine Lives is high on my list from the new releases as Cuteasaurus!

Lindsey said...

Yep, definitely need to do some PS shopping. :) This cat is such a cutie! I'm also glad you pointed out the stamping on the letter diecuts -- it was easy to miss in the photo, but definitely adds a lot.

Katie Ann Brooks said...

I love all your PS stuff Emily, it makes me smile!

adorable Emily! I just received the graffiti stamp set and Alphawhimsy dies today. They don't really line up and some don't fit.. like the 'm' but I noticed on the store site that it says they don't exactly match. I wondered though, if you stamped first or cut first when you made your letters and if you found any tricks for positioning while stamping. thank you!
