Naughty or Nice Newton?

The blog hop starts here, with a card featuring Newton's Curious Christmas! Since our kitty Newton is both naughty and nice - I thought I'd color this kitty to be orange like him. I love this image of the kitty in the tree - it looks like he could either be decorating the tree or being naughty and knocking down the ornaments! I stamped the image onto watercolor paper and colored it with distress markers and a water brush.

Behind the kitty image is small chunk of silver paper that I added some fun texture too using some embossing paste and a sweater pattern stencil.  Then I framed it in red cardstock to help the whole thing pop. The "naughty or nice" sentiment is also from the  Newton's Curious Christmas stamp set and was added on with some holiday bakers twine. Then for the base I used a scrap of red and green patterned paper from my stash and some red polka dot washi tape! I love how this turned out!

  6. This stamp set is so cute, and I'm cracking up b/c hubby put our tree up last night, & our kitten immediately decided it was a giant kitty toy and starting batting the limbs around. Your Newton is adorable :) I found my way here from Jennifer McGuire's blog, and am looking forward to seeing the rest of this hop.

  12. Newton is adorable! We have a "cat garden" cat we have named Tigger who looks much like Newton. After our last indoor kitty (had 4, over 30 years) we decided it was time to not have any indoor ones. But "someone" decided we aren't done with cats, as we found 4 feral newborns in our back yard. We made a family decision to care for them, have neutered 15 of them (the entire colony) and have named all of them. We continue to care for them, providing food, water and shelter when it gets cold. So yes, love cats and will definitely be checking out your stamps!

  39. Our cats are naughty and nice too ;) But one of them likes to get in the tree and than just waits in the center until someone sees him. We're lucky to have plastic decorations, otherwise I think some of them wouldn't survive with him hanging around ;).
