2021 Cat Lovers Hop

 Kat Scrappiness is happy to announce that they are one of the sponsors for the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop over on the Her Peaceful Garden blog. You can find all the Hop details along with how to participate for a chance to WIN one of the prizes up for grabs HERE.  

Kat Scrappiness has donated their Pet Sentiments Brush Script Word & Sentiment Die Set to one of the lucky hopper! Good Luck!

I created a FUN Halloween theme Mini Slimline Shaker card featuring a bunch of goodies from Kat Scrappiness. The card design was built around the spooky cut Cat die from the Toil & Trouble stamp and die set. 
 Steps to Create Card:
  • Cut White Mini Slimline Card Base: 3 1/2" x 6" (7" x 6", scored at 3 1/2" on 7" side).
  • Cut black panel using the largest die in the Zig Zag Mini Slimline die set. 
  • Cut a piece of pattern paper from the Boo To You paper pack measuring 2 5/8" x 5 1/8".
  • Cut Black Frame: 1 7/8" x 3 3/8", 1/8" wide using the Never Ending Mini Slimline die set.  
  • Cut window in pattern paper panel: 1 1/2" x 4 1/8" using the Never Ending Mini Slimline die set. 
  • Cut Acetate to slightly smaller than the pattern paper panel (2 5/8" x 5 1/8").   
  • Cut out Tree, Moon, Bats & Tombstone from the Crafter's Esentials Halloween die set. 
  • Cut the Cat from the Toil & Trouble stamp & die set out in black glitter card stock. For embellishment I added Black Obsidian Jewels for eyes.
  • Stamp and Emboss a sentiment from the Toil & Trouble stamp set with white embossing powder on a piece of black card stock. Then use the Boxed Sentiments Strips die to cut out.
  • Create shaker well. For the bottom of the well I used I lightly ink blended Crushed Olive and Black Soot Distress Oxide ink. Then I filled the well with All 'Hallows Eve Sequin Mix (just happens to have black cats in the mix!)
  • Assemble card.
Card Measurements:
White Mini Slimline Card Base: 3 1/2" x 6" (7" x 6", scored at 3 1/2" on 7" side)
