Two quick cards using up those odd bits of cardstock that get left over when you make a 6" square card from a 12" x 9"sheet.! I have had this cat stamp for a while. It is an Inca stamp called Cat Blocks. I saw it on a fellow bloggers site and just had to get it. The stamp is in a block of 9 little cats which you could stamp out in one shot onto a card but I thought they look quite cute in blocks of two's and singles. These are using up all snippets from my folder which is getting fatter by the day.
Ribbons and the buttons are from my stash. The sentiments are printed out from word.
There is a
tail tale to the ribbons.
A long time ago I used to breed and show persians and whilst the prizes that you got were not of high monetary value you did get lots of rosettes for winning 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Best of Breed etc. After a decade of showing I had accumulated a lot of them. Too many to put up on the wall (which I did do in the dinning room) so the rest were just collecting dust in boxes. When we redecorated the dinning room a few years ago the rest came down and as I was no longer showing I decided to put the rosettes to good use hence my rather hefty stash of 4" and 6" bits of ribbon. It took me absolutely ages to cut the rosettes up and I even found a use for the round discs in the centre. They were used up as the bases for flower brooches which I made a lot of.
The basecard for this one is actually green but is looking rather pale in the photo.
As they both made completely from snippets I am entering them in
Pixies Crafty Workshop.
