Jin's Pusheen cards


So while I was at my local stamp store the other day, I came across one of Mama Elephant's latest releases. The Favor Bag Accessory (- Cat ) is a set of metal dies that you can use with a die cutter, like the Sizzix Big Shot, to cut out the different layers to make a cat. I had actually gone inside the store hoping to find the Bear version of the set but they were all sold out. Seeing that the store only had 1 last set of the Cat dies left, I grabbed them.

Guide re-posted here with permission.

At first, I was a little confused. I wasn't really sure what all the little parts that came in the set were for. Luckily Mama Elephant has put up a guide on their site that explained everything. The guide even included some ideas of what you can make with the set. I was thrilled!

Oh lookie! Mama Elephant shared my photo! 

I was going to make some beige and orange cats with the dies when I noticed the Pusheen bluetooth speaker on my desk. OMG! Why didn't I think of it sooner? I can make Pusheen with these dies!


The first cards that I made with the set were these Pusheen shaped cards. Aren't they the cutest? I can use them as notecards and I'm going to slip one into my youngest daughter's lunch box.


Next, I made a simple Hello card. One can never have enough Hello cards. Especially one with a Pusheen on the front.


Actually, come to think of it, I seem to always run out of Birthday cards too. So I made a couple of those using the same idea as the Hello card. I just added a hat to the card and changed the greeting to "Happy Birthday". Easy peasy!


Although I enjoy using my Silhouette Cameo to make paper cutouts, these metal dies were very fun to use too. In fact, I enjoyed using these dies so much, I think I'm going to have to get the Bear and the Bunny versions. Hope I can make a panda out of one of them!

    1. I bought it from the Impress store at UVillage. If you are headed to the Tukwila store, you may want to give them a call to check for availability first.

    2. Thank you. I wasn't sure if it was okay to mention store names.
