Cat Nap - and another Dreamy Treat opportunity

I'm getting a strong message that everyone wants to win the JustRite Stamper! :-) Well here is another chance to register to win. Only one comment per post from now through Saturday. The winner will be announced Sunday evening. On this post, please tell me how you found the Dreamy Treat opportunity, and what is your favorite accessory for the JustRite stamper.

Did you know that we have a card gallery on the store's website? One section is just for JustRite Projects . Be sure to check it out!

Some of the NEW JUSTRITE PRODUCTS are in the store NOW! The rest of the new products arrived in their warehouse today and they have already started shipping them. I am crossing my fingers that they will be here Friday evening. I also ordered more of the JustRite stampers and some more accessories...so let's hope they arrive on Friday as well.

Don't miss the rest of the Dream Team's JustRite creations this week:

Charmaine - Wednesday 9/10

Kurtis - Thursday 9/11

Laurie Friday 9/12

Tosh Saturday 9/13

Now...is that what you came here for? Or did you really want to see a card? LOL! This stamp is from one of my favorite stamp companies, the Artful Stamper . Their images are just adorable, and they are sooooo much fun to color. The name of this stamp is Cat Nap .
I stamped it on watercolor paper using VersaMark Ink and embossed with JudiKins Detail Gold embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers. I used a damp paintbrush for blending and shading.
I stamped again on watercolor paper and cut out the head and holly so I could pop them up for dimension. You can see the dimension in the last photo.

The white part of the Santa Hat is White Liquid Applique sprinkled with Art Institute Crystal glitter. (I will have the glitter in the store soon.)

Gosh, I didn't mean for this post to be so long...but I had a lot to tell you!

Thanks so much for stopping by...and don't forget to register for the Dreamy Treat! Someone is going to win, and it could be you!

What an adorable card, Michelle!

Cheryl said...

Well Michelle, I have you in my google reader so I don't miss a post and that is how I found out about your dreamy treat. As for the JR accessory--I don't have a stamper so don't have any accessories yet so can't tell you that. Maybe that will change when I win. LOL!!
Love your card.

Jennifer said...

Michelle, this is so sweet! Oh I love it! OK, I'm quite the animal nut anyway but this is really sweet! Love all the detail!

Gabriela said...

Well isn't that the most adorable looking kitty and stamp? You've outdone yourself my dear. The cat looks just like my little girl's "late" kitty that just passed away 2 days ago. We're heartbroken but your card has lifted me. Thank you.

Mary (Happy Now) said...

I think the small letter set seems to be the way many stampers are getting some MAJOR mileage out of their JustRite Monogram stampers... I found the "Dreamy Treat" through the JustRite blog. Thanks!

Kerry J. said...

Love your card with all that liquid applique - so cute! I found you through you! I don't have a JustRite so don't know about accessories. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Charmaine said...

I found you through the Just Rite blog. I love all the different borders you can use...you can make so many different looks with one monogram.

I have your site on my Google Reader! I love your watercoloring! The Damask borders are gorgeous for the JustRite stamps - they add such a special touch for monograms!

Harriet Skelly (SCS hskelly) said...

I found you originally through Cammie's blog, but now I have you bookmarked on my computer! I don't really know what accessories are available for the stamper, as I never even seen one in person, so, needless to say, i don't really know exactly how it works. Maybe I'll win one soon!!!!! :)

I learned about this great contest from my email subscription to Just Rite Stampers. I would have to say the small type is probably my favorite - it really stretches the use of the monogram stamper.

Sheila said...

As for the Dreamy Treat, I don't have a JustRite Stamper YET *grin* but it appears that it has a DIY facet to it that would make it incredibly versatile, which I would ~love~!! I heard about your blog from Laurie Schmidlin's blog, which I subscribe to. But now I am subscribed to you both :) Lucky me :) Love ya'all's eye candy!! :) And what a ~pretty kitty~! ;) ~Sheila

leenda said...

Adorable card! I subscribe to your blog is how I learned of your prize. I think the different fonts would be my favorite accessory.

Susan G said...

Your coloring on this card is gorgeous! The red is such a rich tone. Thanks so much for offering the JR stamper. I'd love to win it.

JoAnn said...

Hi
I subscribe to your blog....never miss a card. I dont have any just rite stamps yet....but maybe this is my LUCKY comment !!! Thanks

Janet said...

I love your card. I think the white liquid applique with glitter just tops the whole card off. It is also a nice change to see it embossed with the gold. Nice! Oh and thanks for a chance to win the JustRite stamp set.

Sandi said...

I found the treat from the Just Rite email. I love Just Rite monograms and would love to own some accessories. I am looking to buy a new font.

jeneaevan said...

I found out through the JustRite email. I love the damask borders kit!

Jessica said...

What a cute card! I need to try that liquid applique stuff.

I found your blog through the JustRite blog. And I think the best accessory is the 10 Designer Centers & Borders. It's just so versatile!

Sally Gasparri said...

I subscribe to your blog so I won't miss anything. The 2-sided 2-color ink pad seems to me to be the most versatile accessory. It is reasonably priced and gives you several color choice options.
Thank you for giving away the JustRite Stamper, and I hope I win.

Hi - thank you so much for the chance to win this amazing blog candy. I'm subscribed to your blog, so I heard about it from you, and also from some other blogs I'm subscribed to - namely Amy,Charmaine, Kurtis, Laurie and Tosh! I don't have any JustRite products so I don't have a favorite as such, but I do love the look of the borders . . .

Melissa Ritter said...

I found out about the Dreamy Treat opportunity from the JustRite blog. woo hoo

I don't know which one will be my favorite as I just ordered the large monogram stamper yesterday with some accessories. I ordered the medium/large number set, the small letter set, and the Special Occasions Font w/3 borders.

I can't wait to play with them!

Val said...

What a cute card! It's hard to believe that the holiday season will be here soon! I found the Dreamy Treat "chance to win" from your blog. My favourite accessory for the JustRite stamper (if I had one) would be the Special Occasion Font and Border kit.

mamabearsk said...

Him, found your contest from Stamin Kub's site. I don't have any of your stamps yet, so don't know what accessory I would prefer. I would love to have the chance to try them out.

Wow this is awesome I'd love to win one. Thanks so much. All the projects and card are beautiful.

KSinMT said...

I am having trouble leaving a comment. I have tried about 5 times and I hope I am not leaving 5 comments. Anyway, I came over yesterday from Just Give Me Stamps blog. I don't hae a favorite but maybe the little letters would be great. I think the kitten card is adorable. Kathy

Jen said...

Our cat loves to curl up in and under any blanket, sweatshirt or open pillowcase that she can get into! LOL
Love the card... beautiful work. TFS!

justmyopinion12 said...

I love the Special Occasions Kit! I would love to win the blog candy, especially after dealing with IKE! Yikes! I saw the info about the blog candy on the Stamper's Dream website.

pammy jo said...

i found you from Laurie's 'just give me stamps', and boy am i glad i did - your blog is so much fun! i like that you can use the alphabets by themselves, and that there are 3 different borders to create different monogram looks :)

Laraine R said...

The justrite blog sent me here. Great cards and blog!! Thanks for sharing.

lovetostamp said...

I think I found you through Sharon Johnson. I love ordering things from you. I love everything I have purchased from the JustRite Line - I can't pick just one thing. There are a lot more items I want to add to my collection. Your card made withn the cat nap stamp is so cute. I have been hooked on Penny Black's cute stamps but will have to check out the Artful Stamper line.

Elaine M said...

I originally found you through another's blog -- now you're on my list and I check your blog out all the time knowing I'll find something wonderful

I really like the Damask Monogram -- It just looks so "dressy"

Nancy said...

Such an adorable card! I have pictures of my cat with a santa hat on... he has kind of a "get this thing off me or I'm coming after you" look - not so much the "aren't I cute" look that the can on the stamp has. LOL Cats are fun, aren't they?

Amy said...

Ahh, what a cutie! She's absolutely irresistible! Thanks for sharing the great inspiration and giving us another shot and the fun blog candy! Oh yeah, I forgot what you actually asked...I have your blog in my reader so I read your posts every day.

Tracey said...

What an adorable card!! I found the dreamy treat from the Just Rite Blog :) And - my favorite part about the Just Rite stampers have got to be the little letters...hands down!

Mary B said...

Even though I've ordered from your store before, I didn't know about the blog until reading about it on the Just Rite page. I love all the different borders available, even though I don't have many...yet. Thanks for the chance to win such wonderful candy!

Ruth Earle said...

Very cute card. One more chance for the Just Rite kit. Thanks

julie said...

I found you through the Just Rite newsletter. My favorites are the different borders. Thank you.

Linda D said...

I found the Dreamy Treat through an email I received from JustRite Stampers today! The different borders that you have for the monograms are great...changes the look completely! Awesome card!

mnhyrkas said...

Hello, I came via Amy W blog. Now I've subscribed via Google reader. I'm intrigued by the JR stamper as my Karen Foster snap stamps are well loved, but know that those are not available any longer. I've got my eye on those numbers for sure!

amazingpapergrace.com said...

I read you every day!! I would love to delve into the Justrite products!

Carol Sisk said...

I found out about the Dreamy Treat through my daily Email from JustRite Stampers. I don't have a favorite accessory yet, because I don't have any of the stampers yet...though they are on my "must have" list.

Ruby Craft said...

What a sweet card! I love all things Christmas! I heard about your blog/blog candy and JustRite from Laurie Schmidlin's blog. I don't have a JustRite stamper yet, so I don't have a favorite accessory yet either. I do love that there are many different fonts though.

I 'happened' upon this site through one of the finalists' blog... I've been wanting a monogrammed address stamp, and yours may be just the ticket! Love all your blogs, Arielle

I found this site through the Just Rite blog. I think the best thing Just Rite has come up with is the rectangular stamper and font sets to spell out anything you wish.

I am so sorry, I was laughing so hard about the post about your date preparations and thoughts that I forgot to tell you how wonderful I think your card is with the pinecones. It's awesome! I also love this cat nap card- too cute! I found out about the 'Dreamy Treat' opportunity and your blog from the Just Rite blog and I am so glad that I found your blog :). I don't know what my favorite accessory would be for the Just Rite stamper because I have to wait until next week to order mine, but I have a hunch it will 'all' be my favorites :D.

Sara said...

Found this through the JustRite blog. I don't know about my favorite accessory because I don't have anything by JustRite but I've seen SO MUCH done with many of their products.

PaperAddictJenn said...

I found the Dreamy Treat on Laurie's blog, which I started looking at months ago. I don't have any JustRite products YET, so this would give me a jump start to begin my collection! It's hard to choose which one I want to order first--they are all so awesome!
