Social Stamping - Out of the Box

Kelly Kent's Social Stamping Covid Blog Hop theme is Out of the Box this week and it certainly had us all thinking hard. I started down the track of using new product - as in getting it out of the box, and I've combined that with making a Pop Up Box card. Again that seems appropriate given the last one I made was for my demonstration in Perth last November.

I've used a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock for my box and mats of Whisper White with Flirty Flamingo as the feature panels on the top half and Cinnamon Cider for the bottom half.

The greeting is from Butterfly Gala in Black Memento ink on Whisper White - chopped up and the edges were run across the ink pad to frame them.

The little paw print is from the Pets Dies and I've used the negative so that I just had one paw, not the three the die cuts (although I thought after a circle punch would have been another option).

Next task was lots of fussy cutting from the Playful Pets DSP. 

To carry on with the theme, the big grumpy cat in the background is sitting on a box made from a scrap of Basic Gray cardstock,

The Flirty Flamingo cardstock was run through the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. I'm loving the texture this folder gives!

If you've ever owned a cat - you know they can have several personalities, and I love the look captured on this evil little black cat!

Next up we have my lovely CASEing the Catty crew friend, Siobhan:

Thanks again Kelly - for the chance to social stamp and for stretching our imagination x


  1. Such a great card in a box! Love all the cats you find hiding in different parts of the card.

  2. Yes!!! This is great Sandra. I really love the colours and styling for your pop up kitties. Kelly x

  3. Love it Sandra! As I have said before these cats are so funny! I love their little personalities, what a great box card xx

  4. Great box card Sandra, your cats all have a personality, especially the grumpy one at the back x

  5. Fab way of bringing these cheeky cats together and out of the box!

  6. Out of the box, indeed! THis reminds me of the children's book My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes. I'm impressed with all that fussy cutting and just how many cats you've managed to use here. My favourite is the little black one who is chasing his ball of yarn around the corner. So cute!
