New Release for Sandra Caldwell

It's Friday and that means it's another new release day from Sandra Caldwell.  I always get a kick out of Sandra's adorable cats, but I gotta say, #1435 Cat in the Beanstalk has to be one of my faves.  I knew immediately I wanted to add some dimension to this fun scene so I printed the image several times so I could fussy cut and pop.  I had loads of green paper laying all over my desk from St. Paddy's Day projects so I had no trouble choosing colors or framing the fabulous image.

Here's a closeup of the little guy and his GIANT beanstalk.  He's colored with Copics with the leaves and cloud fussy cut to add more layers.  I love his expression and thought a bit of encouragement was needed so I came up with the sentiment I printed on a Die-version's die (with the dangling moon and stars cut off) and popped it at the top.

Finally the dimensional view.  I had a ball with  this new #1435 Cat in the Beanstalk and there's plenty more where he came from.  Visit Sandra's Etsy Shop (babycakesdnd) to see all the newbies and be inspired by the Dt makes in the Sandra Caldwell Stamps Fans FB Group.  Lots of fun games and prizes to be had there too, and the March FB Contest, "Bee Silly", is in full swing. Sandra has discounted 4 cute bee stamps to only $1.50 to join in.  Check them out HERE.

I'm entering this in the DL.Art March Linky Challenge, SUYP (cats only) March AG/St Cat-rick's Day challenge, Simon Says Wednesday a Bit O'Green, Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #53 AG, Your Scrapbook Place March AG (using Sponsor's Image) , Simply Create Too March Lots of Green (3/3), Glitter and Sparkle Use some Green, Classic Design Team Open March, World Wide Design Team Open #120Inspiration Destination #123 AG, and TTRCD AG week of March 14th

  11. Perfect sentiment choice for the image as the cat does look like he/she needs some encouragement. So glad you shared your creation at Simply Create Too.
