Black Kitty ~ HSS275, PP366, TGIFC129

Hey, hey, hey!  It's Hand Stamped Sentiments inspiration challenge time!  I love inspiration challenges.  There are so many options!  I chose to go with the black cat theme and add a sunflower, pumpkin and incorporate the purple background color.  I think by adding the purple it says Halloween and not just fall.  I'm also adding my creation to the list at The Paper Players clean and simple spooky challenge #366.  I feel with all the open space this is pretty clean and simple.  I also used the sketch from TGIF challenges #129.

I stamped my kitty in Memento black ink.  It's not a true black and sort of looks muted, which is what I was going for.  I wanted to be able to see his whiskers, nose, eyes, and mouth when I stamped and embossed them.
His little bow tie is the kite bow from the set Swirly Bird.  I also used it as the stem on the pumpkin.  The pumpkin is the weird, oblong shape from Lovely Inside and Out.  I thought it resembled a pumpkin.  
I layered the kitty and pumpkin on a cute sunflower cut from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies, Stitched Circles dies, and layering circles dies. 

Thanks for taking a peek and I hope to see you play along with us at HSS!


  1. Great card Jenny! The use of the cat for a halloween themed card is fabulous and I love the layering of the medallion and the Stitched circle for added fun and texture. Great colours and a great card. Thanks for playing along and supporting us this week at TGIF Challenges. Rochelle xo
