When I was at the Heirloom Productions Rubber Stamp Show, I was drawn to artist Paula Best‘s rubber stamp store. Click the hyperlink to see my video, where I focused on some of her art. I bought a handful of stamps from her table and one of them was for a very special purpose: my mom’s birthday card. I come from a family of cat-lovers and when I saw this stamp with all these cats, I knew it would make her smile. She loves Kliban Cats, Laurel Burch and other artists’ cats so this stamp seemed fitting for her.
It was just a loose piece of grey rubber and another store sold extra thick foamy adhesive that was clingy on the other side. Recently I took the time to make all the loose rubber stamps usable by attaching them to the foam and cutting around them. Here is the cat card I made for my Mom’s birthday. I am happy to report she enjoyed the card. Which cat is your favorite? I made three of the cats resemble mine and my parents’ felines but my favorite is the little Siamese guy.
