Hello and welcome to my blog. Thanks for joining me for another week of #socialstamping, hosted by the wonderful Kelly Kent.

This weeks theme is “Animals” so I just had to make a card with a cat on it using the Nine Lives Stamp set and matching Cat Punch.
My card base is Night of Navy with a layer of Seaside Spray then I’ve embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with the new Old World Paper Embossing Folder. I added a little ink to the inside of the embossing folder to create a crumpled brown paper sort of look, just like the brown paper we used to get in our SU delivery boxes. I found a great YouTube video from Erica Cerwin showing how to make the cardboard box.
I added some Follow Your Art Washi Tape to the box so it looked like a SU delivery. The cat, Marvi, has been stamped on Crumb Cake card stock in Memento Black Ink and coloured with Smoky Slate and Pumpkin Pie Blends. Marvi has so many colours in his fur it was hard to get the right look.
On the inside of the card I have some Seaside Spray with a layer of Whisper White. I added a little strip of embossed Crumb Cake along the bottom and stamped the sentiment and some little hearts.
Marvi loves to sit in boxes but today he wasn’t keen on posing for photos. The photo above is an old photo of him in a SU box. The photo below is why he wasn’t keen on posing today, snug as a bug in a rug. This is his favourite SU box which he’s had for many years.
