I had enormous fun playing with my Stamptember stamps called Right Meow in all I made six cards. My first card today is probably my favourite, first of all I had to find some pattern paper and I went with Reverse Confetti Warm Heart since it was on my desk. I used it for background and to paper piece my cats jumper.

I had already decided I wanted to use Picture Book Sky Background and I cut it in white card to insert my clouds. I then used the Simon says Stamp Stitched Slopes and Hills die to cut out my grass, once done I carefully placed the sky background die so the clouds didn't touch my slopes. This meant I was able to add the right size grass to the sky background.

I place in white card so I could add that brilliant sentiment that came with the stamp set and then added some leaves using Simon says Stamp Mini Flowers and Leaves with my scraps of card.

My final card I used one of my Oxides backgrounds I think the inkpads Squeezed Lemonade and Cracked Pistachio, I then used the Simon says Stamp Wonky Rectangles die.

When I had I first saw this kitty I saw a heart shape which is why I placed him on the Simon says Stamps Small Heart Doily and for the knitting needles I used the Simon says Stamp Boat die trimming the mast to fit. Apologies for the bent tail but the kitties tails are really difficult to a border round definitely would help if you had the dies or buy the stamp and die set.

To finish I used some Doodlebug Limeade Twine and Simon says Stamp Get Well Soon die.

Two beautiful cards with the kitty stamps Debby, I love the idea with the ball of wool, and the first with kitty in a jumper and the very apt sentiment works well too, and the clouds and bits of foliage which look as though they are blowing in the wind look great. x

Debby these are both so sweet! I love those kitty's! The scene on the first one is fantastic and the look yarn for your second project is amazing!

It’s definitely inching closer and closer to sweater weather. Although surprisingly warm today where I live. These are both adorable. I love that kitty in the little sweater with the fall leaves all around. And the kitty inside the heart is adorable too. I love that you embellished with some matching twine. Both adorable cards!!
