Paw Prints on my Heart Blog Hop

Hello and welcome. Today I am participating in a special blog hop all about our furry friends. It is called Paw Prints on my Heart Blog Hop.

This is a blog hop featuring projects showcasing the love we have for our fur babies!

I have created a scrap page for you of our beautiful Chocolate Point Ragdoll called Angel.

Have you seen the Pretty Kitty stamp set? So much fun to colour. See it here -

She sure is one pretty kitty and very spoilt. But how could you not spoil her with such a cute face. Here are some close ups of the page.

I have used one of the sheets from the Share What You Love Designers Paper. The reverse side of one of the pieces was perfect as I thought it looked like paw prints.

I wanted to use all Stampin' Up! supplies, after all, that's what I sell. But we don't have a terrible lot in our range that suits. However we do have a couple of stamp sets and a punch.

Cat Punch

I don't have the Nine Lives stamp set and Cat Punch yet, but I do have the Pretty Kitty stamp set. How aptly named is it! I used all the images in it and had a great deal of fun colouring them using our Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

Each coloured image and each piece of the pretty designer series paper was cut out using the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. These dies make it so easy to get everything the same size. I am in love with them.

I wanted to bring some brightness to the page as the backing designer series paper I used was very neutral. So what is brighter than the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper. I didn't necessarily want all the florals as I thought that would distract from the coloured kitties. So I used the reverse side of the paper. Still vibrant and bright without being too distracting.

For the heading I stamped onto Whisper White card stock using the Lined Alphabet stamp set, then coloured them with Stampin' Blends. I tried to create an ombre effect. They were then cut out using the Layering Alphabet dies. Now these dies don't cut out the complete letter as they are designed to sit under each other for a different effect. But you just need to cut the extra bit with your paper snips and you have a perfect cut out letter.
