Addicted to Stamps and More: Happy 9th Birthday!

It's Addicted to Stamps and More's NINTH birthday! The first challenge was on June 20th, 2012. And how fitting that we have rotated to BIRTHDAYS in our challenge list! I went a little fancier than usual in my cardmaking for this special occasion: 

This is only my second time using this sweet Cats & Plants card kit from My Favorite Things - which is a little silly, since it's so much fun to use! I decided to create a little windowsill scene, starting with die cutting the window, curtain rod and curtains. I used a cloud stencil for the window view. (I think it will be fun sometime to put either another cat or a dog peeking in, but that's another card.) I also die cut the bench and cushion, adding woodgrain texture to the legs. Next up was stamping, embossing and colouring the cat and monstera before die cutting them, as well. I also added a bit of floor to the white panel, sponging the lighter colour before adding a few darker marks using a stippling brush. Added the sentiment and put everything together! 

Hope you will come and help ATSM celebrate its 9th birthday!

Such a gorgeous card, Lindsey - your little kitty is so sweet and I'm a sucker for a punny sentiment. Love the extra details like the wooden legs and the way you created the floor. Definitely worthy of the special celebration!

Take care.

Your card is simply adorable. I love this scene you have created. And, thanks so much for the visual reminder of all the amazing stuff in that cat and plants kit I HAD to have. You have inspired me to pull out that kit and make something.
