Clean and Simple Christmas

SPOILER ALERT – if you have a cat and are on my Christmas card list, quickly scroll down to the list of team blogs, click on a name and leave them some love.  You'll see this card soon enough!
I know.  I know.  Whenever I see "spoiler alert" I can't stop  – like a moth attracted to a light.  My apologies for spoiling the surprise.

Before we get to today's project, CONGRATULATIONS! to the winner of Week #4 Festively Distressed cross-promotion with the Ranger/Tim Holtz Distress Powders

 randomly chosen from team member Kristi Van Doren's blog

Denise, if you haven't already done so, send Lynell ( your snail mail address so she can send you your prize package.

Thanks to everyone who played along with us and to Ranger Ink and Tim Holtz for a great product.

So here we go . . .

For a cat person, this stencil is purr-fect (couldn't resist that one).   Here's what you'll need:

Dreamweaver Products
Retro Sitting Cat (LL3020)
Kitty Words (LG741)
Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP)
Palette Knife (DPK)
Stencil Brush (BHB/GHB)

Pigment ink

Position Retro Sitting Cat stencil on card stock and tape all sides.  Apply glossy black embossing paste.  Remove pasted image and set aside to dry.  Wash and dry stencil and palette knife.
Position Kitty Words stencil on card stock and tape corners to hold it in place.  Using a stencil brush, apply pigment ink.
Cut patterned paper and mats to size; cut out Sitting Cat.  Assemble the pieces, add the embellishments and you're done!

There's more crafty goodness to be found on each team member's blog, so check them out, starting with Dreamweaver's blog, Dream it Up!
