I am working on a cat scrapbook album and would like to add some texture to make it look like hair. Is there a stamp out there that might do the trick? I keep thinking using a brush or something just to get the textured lines. Not sure where I am going with this thought lol.

I didn't want to read and run, but I haven't seen anything like that! You could try using paint and brushing out white areas maybe? Ink wouldn't be any good. Or you could use white acrylic paint to dry-brush (put a little paint on the brush and then brush most of it off so you only have the brush marks left).

I did a page about visiting Borneo's Kuching, which means "cat city". I sanded cat scratches on the paper by bending it over the edge of the table and sanding it in parallel lines. That was effective. Good luck!

I haven't seen any stamps like that, but according to some other posts on here, there is plenty of FREE cat hair some scrappers can send you!!!!

I can be the first to volunteer!!!!

I made my own...I used scraps from some Stampin Up stamps and cut the pieces like shorter hairs, maybe 1/4-1/2 inch each. I used it to finish one of those cat face stamps(with only the eyes, nose and whiskers) and made the fur around the cat's face. I liked how it turned out myself. But I have more of the scraps and if you want some I would mail you some. It is pretty easy cutting with a sharp scissors. I can show a pic of the design after stamping and the stamps themselves if you want. I have done the design with yarn for the hair too and depending on the yarn I use, that turns out cool too.

You can try using flocking to make it fuzzy and soft.
