It's Monday, and time for a new featured stamp set of the week.  I have another fun stamp set this week.  It is called Love Cats.  I hope you aren't getting tired of all the cute little critters I've been sharing this month.  We have had Owls, Elephants and now Cats.   

I'll be honest, I am much more of a dog lover than a cat lover, but these little cuties in this stamp set stole my heart, so I had to have it.

My neighbors have two cats that are sisters.  One is white with black spots.  Her name is Coco, and she actually likes me -- well most of the time.  She comes for a visit a few times a week.  Coco even knocks on the window sometimes when I haven't noticed she is out there staring in at me.  Her sister is black with white spots.  Her name is Mia, and she pretty much keeps her distance.

Today my little cat is all black, so let's call him Jet.  I stamped Jet with VersaMark on Basic White cardstock and then embossed him with Black Embossing Powder.  Next, I used a square die from Stylish Shapes dies to die cut him in a diamond shape. I stamped the little heart at the end of Jet's tail a second time on Rich Razzleberry cardstock and embossed the heart with clear embossing powder.  Since this stamp set does not have coordinating die, I just fussy cut the little heart with my Snips and adhered it with a tiny dimensional.  

Jet said he knows that he is just a little house cat, but he dreams of being a big and powerful Tiger, so he wanted some paper that looked like tigers on his card.  I found just the thing in the Like an Animal Designer Series Paper Collection from the January-April Mini Catalog.  This paper is a Specialty Paper, and the Tiger Stripes are silver foil.  Jet liked that it was all shiny!

Jet then decided that I needed to use the Head over Heels... sentiment!  He said his tail was really over his head, but it was close enough!  Jet debated and debated if the sentiment should be embossed with white on Basic Black or Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  He couldn't make up his mind and insisted I make one of each so that he could see them both.  He finally chose the Rich Razzleberry cardstock to match his heart.

Jet had absolutely no interest on the inside of the card because he wasn't in it.  So, he said to just slap some more Tiger Paper on it while he was going to take a nap.
