My Little Yarn Kitty

Hi there everyone! It's Taylor here, and Saturday is my day to post a card on the 2 Cute Rubber Stamps blog. I'm really looking forward to sharing a new project with you every week!

This week my card is cute and simple. I used darker cardstock colors to help the ultra-busy Basic Grey dp stand out. I handstitched the two pieces of dp together and then handstitched those two pieces to the orange cardstock. I also added two small "x" shaped stitches to my scalloped frame for the sweet little kitty.

My kitty is colored with Copics and I just think he is the sweetest image! His name is actually Cat-Knit and guess what? He, along with the other images by 2 Cute Rubber Stamps, are available in cling cushion AND digi now! How great is that? Check them out at the store.

Also, don't forget to sign up as a follower for this blog - you'll be entered to win a free stamp next week! This weekend is your last chance to enter :) The free stamp is a *wooden* one - the Turtle Sundae image! Soooo cute!

You Whooo!

You whooo! It's me, Amanda (aka: Crafty Paper Girl) and my post day here at 2 Cute is every Friday- to get you moving into the weekend with an inspirational creative kick!

It's no secret that I love owls... they are so versatile, vintage and cute, so when I saw this image on Heidi's list, I immediately snagged it and started creating! This little cutie actually has a flower attached, but I cut it off to coordinate better with the papers I wanted to use. The inside message reads: "Owl always be there for you."

Supplies: Stamp: Owl Miss You; Patterned Papers: Sassafrass and Cosmo Cricket; Color Medium: Copics; Other: red twine
I hope you signed up to follow this blogaroo already, but if you didn't, what are you waiting for? Heidi is giving away a free Wooden Stamp to one of her followers next week! Have a happy, crafty weekend!
