I did an Inlaid-diecutting and added two more tree dies underneath for the dimensions.

 The stamping of this tree is truly remarkable. I was inspired by the Fall color and stamped the tree in yellow, orange, red and brown.

 There are two parts for this design. First, it is about the "curtain". I used the Geometric Botany Stamp Set and Window Slats Embossing Folder.

As you can imagine, it was so much fun to create this little scene. The Cat's Life Stamp & Die Bundle is definitely a stand out in this release. You must get it if you love cats! They do sell out...just saying.

The 2nd part of this design is about the "rug". I created a rug with the smallest Slimline Rectangles Dies with Galaxy Wide Washi Tape.

Once again, the Cat Life Set is simply PURRFECT!

The simple background was stamped in Endless Florescence.

There are 7 cats in this. I simply stamped the row of 3 cats twice in various colors. I then added one more cat on top.  Aren't they adorable?

Great, fun post. Love the glorious tree, so full and lovely. The cat contemplating what looks like a artisan's mural is just gorgeous. And that pile of pussies is a pure delight.

Linda BL said...

Absolutely love the cards with the cats. I think the one gazing at the geometric design is priceless! You are spot on with the rug--cats always sit on something. We had a cat who once came over and sat down on a postage stamp! Great card with the trees as well.
