Crazy Cat Birthday Yellow Balloon, Red Gift
I acquired an already purchased but unused set of full size Crazy Cats Stamps. I then of course had to buy the matching dies. At the 12 hour crop (my first!) I attended last weekend I got down to it and brainstormed my color schemes for my cats and the accessories. In order to be able to mix and match I standardized on 6 cat and gift/balloon colors. It wasnt until this weekend that I finally had time to put together some cards with my creations. I still have alot of pieces left to be mixed and matched and will be posting them over the next couple of weeks.
Something I like about the Crazy Cats and Birds sets is that you get extra layers of "body parts" dies to add more dimension. Extra die cuts for eys, tails, beaks and wings. I was surprised when I opened the first pack of dies for the Crazy Birds. There were so many pieces! For this card I chose a Stampin up Birthday Wishes set of sentiments. I tied the balloon to the cats tail with some fine hemp twine I got from Michaels.I popped up the cat, gift and balloon with dimensionals.FOr this project I did not add any extra cat parts:)
