Cat and Mouse Chase

As I've detailed in previous posts (see HERE, HERE, and HERE), I'm a little in love with a particular background.

After making THIS card, I had the vellum piece leftover, and so this card came about, using the adorable Mewn and Back stamp set.


Because I've made this background several times, you can follow one of the aforementioned links at the top to find out how to make it. It uses the beautiful Star Confetti die, some pretty inks (Fresh Peach, Ultra Pink, Navy, and Grape Juice) and my fave embossing powder, Hero Arts Clear Sparkle embossing powder.


With my background done, I heat embossed a sentiment from Astronomical in Silver, and then die cut the cardstock using the Circle Infinity dies. The sentiment was adhered to the base with thin dimensional adhesive.

The cats and mice were stamped in Charcoal, and then colored with Pale Gray, Gray Brown and a touch of Pale Pink for the cheeks and ears. I die cut the cats, trimmed the mice out, and adhered them around the sentiment, filling in some space with black gems.


The Mewn & Back and Astronomical stamp sets are both part of the August My Monthly Hero add-on release.

If you haven't heard of this kit before, the website HERE does a great job explaining it. The actual kits are often sold-out, so subscribing guarantees you can get the main kit.

However, Hero Arts releases similarly themed stamps to the main kit (August was space themed), that can be purchased separately. If you order them along with the main kit, there is no additional shipping charge, but if that's not your thing, you can totally buy them later! Either way, it's great to check in every month, even if you're not a subscriber, and see what new add-ons there are.

If you have any questions about the kit, feel free to message me, but again, the website really does a good job explaining all the ins and outs - it's not too complicated, so no worries there. ;)

Thanks for stopping in today and God bless!
