Kittens at Christmastime



I'm back today with some more fun with our Action Wobble partners! You're last stop was at Jan's blog and if you are just starting out here you can scroll down to the hop list and start from the beginning. 

There's something about kittens and Christmas and plenty of videos of them attacking holiday trees. When these two fun stamps came out in the Stampendous July Catalog they were meant to be on a card together. The only wait was for some tinsel to hit the shelves and Hobby Lobby came to the rescue this month! Yay for early Chistmas shopping! LOL


Christmas Kitten has gotten into the tree ornaments... again. This time he's been caught in action though. Do you think he looks innocent? Well, this time it's all propped for the photo, but next time you see a trailing of tinsel around your home, it might just be him!


I stamped, colored and trimmed out the Stampendous Christmas Kitten . Before adding the Action Wobble Spring to the back I added some Cotton Ball White Fun Flock to the Santa hat as all hats of this style must have fluff to them. I cut the striped paper shape to size and sprinkled Sterling Silver Embossing Powder and then Silver Halo Glitter mix around the top edge. The key to doing this is to heat it from the back side of the paper. You won't need to have anything to adhere the powder to that way. It's freeform, it's Fran•táge! I stamped the Tangled Tinsel sentiment and embossed with Midnight Black Embossing Powder. I trimmed it down and added a black border. This is where something was missing and had to add in the black border on the top and bottom of the striped panel. It just looked like it wasn't grounded on the page. So I carefully wrapped the kitten with the tinsel-like cord and then added the Wobble spring to the back of the kitten first then put it on my card. The cord is hanging just below the spring so it doesn't interfere. I tacked down the cord to one paw and then loosely strung it across the bottom of the card. That's it!


Here's another wobble in action.

  55. Janelle,

    That kitten is ADORABLE!!! :) I love your special touches: what you did with the silver embossing powder and your real tinsel!

    I love this layout, Jan!!! :) What a great idea to tuck a whole mini behind your photo! (I am jealous of your humming bird, by the way! We have to be sure to plant some things that will attract them.)

    Thank you so much for sharing,
