A group of The Cat's Pajamas fans and designers recently participated in an ATC (Artist Trading Card) swap over in the The Cat's Pajamas forum at Split Coast Stampers. Part of the fun in making these is the challenge of the canvas size which is 2.5x3.5 inches. My hardest decision was how to narrow it down to which stamp I wanted to use. I finally decided on an oldie but goodie, Big Sprinkle. I stamped her onto a simple patterned paper background with Nick Bantock Lamp Black ink and then heat embossed with Black Diamonds embossing powder making Sprinkle all sparkly. I colored in the nose pink and the eyes a teal blue with Copic Markers. The basic design elements and color scheme were the same although I moved the Heart Trio CutUps around a bit and varied the papers. I finished them off with a felt button cut with the Flower Button CutUps and then tied with twine. All the paper came from my bag of scraps.

I also made an extra one for our sweet hostess Linda. The set is What a Blast and I stamped it onto Copics Express-It blending cardstock, eliminating the pinwheel portion of the image. I colored with Copic markers, paper pieced the belly portion and then cut out. I used the Flower Button CutUps to replace the pinwheel image in order to add texture.
