The cat has pajamas?

Who woulda thunk it? Cats in pajamas. Well, I think it was a fantastic idea because it started a stamp company that is just too cute for words! The Cat's Pajamas is a company that not only offers acrylic (high quality acrylic that is) but they also offer wood mounted. I'm an acrylic kind of gal myself so that is what I went with. I got the Valentine-y sets last month but wanted to show how they don't have to be used that way.

For my first one I used the Loving Mew Clearly Swanky Set. I just adore that little muffin/cupcake!

  • STAMPS- Loving Mew (TCPJ)
  • PAPER- BasicGrey Two Scoops
  • INK- Palette Hybrid black
  • OTHER- Copic markers, Nestabilities, Stickles, ribbon, pop dots

This next one I just think is so cute! I love these colors together! Those birdies are so sweet too!

  • STAMPS- Puppy Love (TCPJ)
  • PAPER- Tempting Turquoise, Marcella
  • INK- Palette Hybrid black
  • OTHER- Copic markers, Nestabilities, Stickles, Cuttlebug embossing folder, ribbon, mulberry Prima, rhinestone, pop dots

I have a confession to make. I'm a bad girl! I had to go to town yesterday so I figured I would go to the next town over and peek at JoAnn's. The JoAnn's closer to me is tiny and doesn't have much so I have to go to the next town over to visit the 'good one'. I really didn't plan on buying anything since today I am going to Hobby Lobby to load up on adhesive (they have it half off!) and will probably get a few new embossing folders if they have any of the new ones yet. But, I couldn't resist the Inkadinkado 3 pack of acrylic stamps for $11.99. I got 2 different ones. Please smack me on the hand! I just couldn't help it though, they are really cute! BUT they aren't the high quality so I can't use them with my dye inks. That's alright though because I also bought two 4 packs of the Versafine Dew Drops. Shame, shame, shame. I really did need them though. LMOA Like I NEED anything! One of the packs I got was the Brilliance (which I only have black) so now I have sparkly bright colored inks too. Go me! I did however, walk out without buying one single sheet of paper!!! That is an accomplishment. Hopefully, I don't stray too far from the adhesive today at HL. Say a prayer for me. lol

I also want to let you guys know that my article on the Creative Hot Marks tool posted on Craft Critique yesterday just in case you are interested.

Hope everyone has a delightful day!!!!
