The Nine Lives stamp set has to be one of my all time favourites from Hello Bluebird. I love the variety of different cats in the set.


I picked the playful cat with the fish for my card today. I coloured him with copic markers and die cut with the coordinating die. I also added two die cut layers behind for dimension.


To create a background on my mini slimline card base, I made my own card using a Grassy Knoll die. I then blended over it with mowed lawn distress oxide ink. To keep the CAS look, I added just enough grass for the cat to sit on.

Finally, I stamped a sentiment over the inked background. This sentiment is from the Nine Lives stamp set.
