~CATS~ at Heart & Soul Rubber Stamp Co!

Meeeooooowwwwww!  Halllloooo!  It's fun and funky kitty time over at Heart & Soul Rubber Stamp Co.!

Isn't this the fun-kiest cat face stamp you've ever seen?!  It's one of the new releases that Sue has in the *New for 2009* catalog supplement

This little kitty is bloomin' out of control!  Look at her grow!  lol!!!! Hee hee! 

When I was thinking of different ways to use this cat face I kept thinking that it should go along with a body so here is my first attempt at a cat body!  I brayered the body with Stampin' Up's! Basic Grey classic ink pad, and colored the tip of the tail with a white gel pen.  The face was colored with Stampin' Up's! Watercolor wonder crayons and markers. There are two sizes of this stamp available in large and small:  1577-little whiskers and 1821-big whiskers.

There are also two brand new stamp sentiments that go along with this kitty face: *13119-bless your whiskers* as shown on the card and *11025-what's meww* which reads "What's Meww With You?" in the same font. Check out all the new stamps here!

Let me introduce you to *12064-affectionately*, isn't it the cutest little stamp?  I paired it with a neat little origami popsicle - can you believe it's just one piece of paper? How did I do it? It wasn't extremely difficult but it wasn't all that easy either!  I must have re-folded it over 15 times until I got it to look right. The pattern is courtesy of Gilad Aharoni.  I was searching the internet for neat and easy origami patterns and came across his website *Gilad Aharoni's Origami Page* and that's where I found the popsicle pattern.  He has folded some pretty awesome figures, you must check it out!
For the stick part I drew in those woodgrain marks with a Stampin' Up *Sahara Sand* marker.
