The cutest kitty cat stamp set is available in the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog! It is callled ‘Love Cats’ -quite appropriate for a title!
I saw a card made by Jenny Boyle with one cat holding the tail of another cat and loved that idea so I changed colors, flowers, background, bling and greeting to make this:
The flowers and paper for the oval frame are from the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper. The flowers are fussy cut and the oval frame is made using the Oval Framelits. It is amazing how one little idea can lead to a very different card! I was making this for a get well card and used a greeting from the ‘Beautifully Happy’ Stamp Set in the Sale A Bration catalog:
I was experimenting with oval sizes and had an extra oval so I stamped the third kitty cat on it, put tear and tape around three edges and added it to the inside left of the card for the gift card.
This is the stamp set:
It is a great stamp set, and with the Stamparatus you can get perfect placement of the kitty so that you can stamp a couple of times for a nice black image.
The ‘Beautifully Happy’ Stamp Set is free with a $100 purchase. It has 17 stamps and is a two step so you can ‘stamp to color’ the flowers and leaves after first stamping the outside!
Stampin’ Up! has a new set of ovals which you can get separately or as a bundle:
Wow, that is tiny – I need a magnifying glass to see the ovals!
So let’s look at this from a Sale A Bration standpoint.
-Framed Florets Bundle. $54. #162407. This has the oval you need, mine is retired.
-Hues of Happiness DSP. $12.00 #158822
-Love Cats Stamp Set. $21.00 #160410
-Cane Weave Embossing Folder. $10 #160580. Mine is the retired basket weave but quite similar.
-Opal Rounds for Bling. $8.50. #159185
If you purchased all those items (assuming you have Thick White Cardstock for the base and a Cut and Emboss machine) you would get the ‘Beautifully Happy’ Stamp Set for free and you could make this card and dozens more with various sayings and flowers and dies to cut out what you need. Birthday, thank you, get well, friend and generic sayings in these sets cover most times you need a card.
- Base: Thick Basic White 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
- Layer (X2), Inside and Outside: Basic White 5 1/4 X 4, Emboss with Cane Weave 3D embossing folder for outside

You thought that sheet of DSP was something you would never use and look at you!
Yes, indeed! Check out the other card I made with this one sheet of paper – Easel Card with Hues of Happiness.
