Trick or Treat Cats Card

Good day and welcome to another sneak peek of the new Trick or Treat in the Pumpkin Patch stamp set by Jessica Lynn Original. If you follow my blog then you might know I adore cats. When I saw the preview for the new stamp set I was thrilled to see a cat was included.

To create this Tick or Treat Cats Card I used my favorite Halloween colors: Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry. Some silver texture paste by Heidi Swapp was added to the patterned paper with the Dot Fade stencil by Tim Holtz. The polka dot cats were fussy-cut and the outside edge of each cat was darkened with a black marker to give them a crisper look. Using the marker also helps to hide any small cutting mistakes. A scalloped frame die cut by Taylored Expressions was used with Pumpkin Pie cardstock and some twine was wrapped around the bottom. The sentiment was punched with a circle punch and matted to a slightly larger gray circle. That's it!

The Trick or Treat in the Pumpkin Patch stamp set will go live at Jessica Lynn Original on Saturday, September 17th at 8:00 a.m. CST. Supplies are limited, so make sure to get yours! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
