Her Peaceful Garden Cat Lover's Blog Hop

Hello Friends!  Today, some of the Kat Scrappiness team members are participating in the Cat Lover's Blog Hop with Her Peaceful Garden and Kat Scrappiness is offering a Prize for the Hop.  This is the 7th Annual Hop and we are thrilled to be one of the many Sponsors who are participating.

Today is Day 3 of the 2021 Cat Lover's Hop and for my Cat Themed project, I've created a Halloween Card using the Kat Scrappiness Toil & Trouble Layering Stamp Set with Coordinating Dies.

I've embossed a panel with an oldie but goodie Halloween Embossing folder from Darice.  I blended shades of orange, purple and black distress oxide inks to get a spooky background.  I've also inked a die cut circle with distress oxide inks for a landing area for the focal image.

The Cat Stamp is a layering stamp and I've used 2 shades of Catherine Pooler gray inks and a black to get the perfect Halloween Black Cat.  This is a great set and I love the completed defined.  I've stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and popped the strip and Kitty Cat on craft foam for dimension.  The cat was die cut using the coordinating dies for this set.

Before adhering the Cat and sentiment strip, I splattered the panel the panels with White Gloss Acrylic Spray.  Lastly, added purple irridescent seqins for a haunting shine.

Stop by Her Peaceful Garden and join in the festivities, there is loads of inspiration and prizes.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
