Stamp Review Crew: Love Cats


Hello!   With Valentine's Days just a month away the SR crew has chosen the ADORABLE stamp set Love Cats.  It is like this set was made for me!   I love the playful kitties and fun sentiments.   More kitties for Kittystamp!

I made a trio of treats to make a kitty lover's Valentine's Day sweet!   

I have a bunch of ideas for this set and will be using it far beyond Valentine's Day!

I have wanted to make a project with a kitty stamp and Swedish Fish Candy for a while.  The kitty with her paw dangling over the edge was the perfect stamp for this.   I cut a 6 x 8 inch cello bag into 4 sections of 2 x 8.   That way I can make four of these with just one cello bag.   I used Tear & Tape to seal the top and bottom.  

The background heart is punched with the same heart punch as the top heart with the sentiment.  I cut it in half and spaced it out to create a layered look.

This relaxed kitty is a tag for a gift bag of chocolate truffles. 
The striped bow is made with white Baker's Twine colored with
 light and dark Calypso Coral Stampin' Blend Markers to get a perfect color match.

This last project was one of those "middle-of-the-night-when-I-should-be-sleeping" ideas.  Did you ever make a "buzzsaw" spinner with a button and some string?  That is what this head-over-heels kitty made me think of. 

I secured Baker's Twine under the stamped image on the back with tape. 

If you twirl the candy while holding the string and then pull on the strings it will spin head over heels!  I took a quick video of it in action.

And speaking of kitties (a lot - LOL) ... I haven't posted a kitty picture in ages.  

Ronin is in love with the fireplace.   He sits as close a possible.

He likes watching the fire but falls asleep sitting up!

These are the candies I used for these projects.
