SUOC16 Raining Cats and Dogs...

Today's challenge over at Stampin' Up Only Challenges is to create a card or project with an animal or pet on it. Well, at first I was thinking hippo. I always wanted a pet hippo as a kid. But then I started down the path of playing with the stamp set in My Digital Studio, Cute Cats.

I printed a cat image on copy paper, attached it to Botanical Gazette DSP with temporary adhesive, and cut it out. I then sponged the edges and repeated with the ears and nose.

This was also my first try for a fabric yo-yo. I found out that I need to cut a larger circle, so I'll continue to practice. ETA: You can go back a few posts to see the yo-yos I put on my fabric cupcake. See, I did get better!

Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, Botanical Gazette DSP; Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Early Espresso marker; Accessories: Sponges, White gel pen, Pear Pizzazz seam binding, Victoria lace, My Digital Studio, On Board Chipboard, Springtime Vintage fabric, Crop-o-dile, Little Leaves die, Square Scallop die, Beautiful Wings embosslit, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.
Thanks for stopping by!

This is charming! I guess I didn't realize that MDS had stamp sets that weren't in rubber as well. I'll have to check that out. Great card!
