Curio Cat!

What's a Curio Cat you ask? Just the cutest chunky stamp you've ever seen!  This adorable stamp from the Laurel Burch line at Stampendous was part of the January 2018 catalog release and Curios are the perfect addition to your craft room decor when you finish your project!

Each lucky member of the Stampendous Design Team was sent two Curio stamps to create beautiful samples for you!  I received these amazing stamps:

 Then the fun began! Stamping and coloring (my favorite step):

Cut out by hand or use the matching die from LBDCS02 LB Indigo Cats Die Set
Next you need to pick out some great papers. I know a lot of people pick their paper first, then color their image to match, but I find the image seems to tell me what colors to use, then I figure out the matching papers!

Before you know it, you have a fun, colorful card!

Step 1:  Fold a 6" x 9 1/2" piece of orange cardstock in half to form an A6 card
Step 2: Use the Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the LB Curio Cat image on white, color with Copic Markers
Step 3: Trim close to the image or use the matching die to cut out the cat
Step 4:  Layer papers  to create a background
Step 5:  Add the LB Cat to the layers, using foam tape under the head area and regular adhesive at the bottom of the cat
Step 6:  Use the Misti Stamp Tool to stamp the sentiment in the lower right corner

See the Stampendous Blog for today's samples. Then stop back on Wednesday to see my creation using the LB Curio Dog!

Happy Creating,
