Purrr-fect Cozy Cat

Since my 'Time Marches On' card was chosen as the Diamond winner for Color Dare #75 on the Color My Heart blog, I was asked to be a Guest Designer for Color Dare #78 with the colors Indian Corn Blue and Hollyhock.  

This sweet Cozy Cat has a 'purrr-fect' sentiment.  After stamping the image on the Colonial White cardstock, it was  also stamped on a piece of Hollyhock patterned paper from the soon-to-be-released Ivy Lane kit and then cut out and paper-pieced for a pretty cushion.  Inspiration for the card design is from Pattern 23 in the Make It From Your Heart, Volume 2 guide.  For the dovetails at the top, some Slate Washi Tape was placed on Indian Corn Blue cardstock for some subtle color. 

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

  1. You really rocked this card, Sheila! Your paper piecing is perfect, and I love those strips of washi tape on the Indian Corn Blue. And the hollyhock zipper ribbon is the perfect touch! Thanks for being a guest designer for us this week at Color My Heart!


    1. Thank you Sarah. I love this stamp set and have not used it nearly enough. :)

  2. Great job on the paper piecing! I love all the details and how you pulled them all together. The Slate Washi Tape on Indian Corn Blue cs really is a nice detail. Love it!


Thanks for your comments! It is always nice to hear some feedback. :)
