This by far is my favorite NEW RELEASE for JULY! The Thank Mew Stamp set! It has 3 adorable kittens and some incredibly adorable knitted smaller stamps as well as a few very punny sentiments!  What's not to love? Kittens, knitted hearts and sentiments like  "I'm not Kitten you" Because I really wanted the kittens to be the real star of my card I decided to mask and stamp all three kittens together on a simple white cardstock background. I colored my kittens using Copics.For my Copic Colors I used:Kitten 1:C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, Y21, Y26Hat: BG10, BG11, BG34, BG49Kitten 2: B000,...
