TCP Tuesday 274

Good morning!  It's Tuesday and time to play along with TCP Tuesday over at The Cat's Pajamas!  The current challenge is a super fun sketch - simple but really great for all occasions! I'll be using this again for sure!

I used Simple Blooms which is a lovely floral silhouette set.  I used some pretty paper from Simple Stories which, when paired with a great stamp set, made this card just come together with quickly!  I used some TCP CutUps dies as well - Queen of Hearts border CutUps die and Butterflies CutUps die.

Check out all the details about the challenge on The Cat's Pajamas blog and the Member Forum at SCS - there is Cat Cash up for grabs so play along for your chance!  Also, do not miss the amazing new Chevron Cutable file that Alma created - I cannot wait to give it a try!!

Have a great day!

TCP Tuesday - Anything Goes!

Good morning everyone! I've got two cards to share with you today for The Cat's Pajamas. The first one is from the last TCP Tuesday challenge which was a sketch challenged and I totally forgot to post my card! It's been done since the release but silly me didn't post it.

So I used Aye, Eye, Ifor this card and made a cute little play on words with the awesome sentiments and images Alma included - this set is so much fun!!

Fast forward to the current TCP Tuesday Challenge - Anything Goes! I love these challenges because no one has am excuse lot to play along, literally "anything goes!!"

I used Life is Like Ice Cream for this card, just love the long-earred bunny in the ice cream dish! The sketch is pretty simple here, just let's the bunny shine!!

TCP Tuesday 269!

Good morning!  It's TCP Tuesday and this is the last week you have to enter this challenge.  But never fear, we are also having a Summer Blog Hop and the prize is fab so be sure and play along!! Check out the TCP Blog for all the info about where to link up.

Nancy is the hostess for the TCP Tuesday challenge and she's given us a great inspiration challenge.  Check out the picture.  Now, I know the "normal" thing to do would be to go with the red, white and blue, patriotic theme but I guess I'm not normal! :)  I went with the floral theme - I just love those little flowers on the cake and since we have brand new flower CutUps dies and stamps I just went with it!

I used the Simple Blooms stamp set that is a gorgeous floral silhouette set!  I had a bit of mixed media fun with the set (which will give you tons of additional ways to use these pretty stamps!).  I used some fun ink sprays and water and sprayed them directly on my carft sheet.  Then I dragged my tag through the colors and let it dry.  I also used a few ink sprays and stencils to add some additional interest.

Finally, I simple stamped my silhouette flowers using black ink right over all the color - I just love the beautiful contrast you get!

To add just a bit more, I used the new Petal Posies CutUps dies and some book paper to add a pretty embellishment to the tag and behind it. It's bright and cheery and I hope you'll give this a try - so fun!

Thanks for visiting today! Hope to see you on the hop! :)

Play Ball!! More TCP New Release!

Good morning!  I have a couple cards I made for The Cat's Pajamas' release this week that I didn't have a chance to show you - wanna see?

This set is called Play Ball!! Isn't the long-earred bun adorable with his bat and hat!?  I decided it was the perfect opportunity to make a Flip Card.  It was super easy following the fabulous Flip Card Video Alma made (btw, check out all the great videos while your there - lots of fun tutorials!)  I love the way this card moves, and yet it still fits in a regular envelope!

I had fun making a baseball out of the circle panel using the Inside Pinking CutUps die.  Once I had the circle cut out I just added the lines using a black pen.  I then cut the pinking die from red paper and then cut it close to the bottom so that I was just left with the little points - these were perfect for the baseball's "stitching"!

And here is the "flip side" or inside of the card.  I used the die as as guide and bent the sentiment to fit in the circle! {love}!  The 3x3 Stars CutUps die (which must be on backorder right not, sorry!) was perfect for a few great embellies.

I hope you give this Flip Card a try, it's so fun and sure to impress the recipient! Thanks for checking in!

Release Day Blog Hop!

Welcome to the release day hop at The Cat's Pajamas!  We've enjoyed 7 whole days of sneak peeks and now you can finally order all your favorite new goodies!!  Don't forget about the Kitty Kat Pack and the Poochie Pack - convenience and savings!

You should have arrived here from one of our Swanky Stamper, Brenda's blog. If you need to start at the beginning, please visit Lisa Henke.

I'm so excited to share this project today because I just love the stamp set, Nature's Hello, the new Petal Posies CutUps dies and the new Butterflies CutUps dies! The other thing I used for this card is the new Card in a Box Cutables file.  It was so easy to make this card using the Cutables file - no measuring!

I used a heavier, double-sided patterned paper to cut my box from so it eliminated the need to cut some of the mats which was nice! But I had so much fun using the flowers from the die set to coordinate with this fun set!

I used acetate to attach my flowers so that they appeared to be floating!

One of the really cool features with this Cutables file is that it folds flat to fit in a regular A2 size envelope! Really!

The other thing that's special is that for the next 2 months, The Cat's Pajamas will be donating the proceeds from the sale of these Cutables to my family's Adoption Fund!  I am so blessed by the generosity of Miss Meowy!!! MWAH!

Speaking of Alma, she's the last stop on this Release Day Blog Hop so pop over and see what she's got for you!  Thanks for joining us and don't forget to shop!!

Sneaky Peek Day 5 - Bubbles Happen!

Happy Saturday to you all!  It's day 5 of Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas and today's set is another one with our cute, cuddle little penguin - Bubbles Happen.

Straight to the card folks - I have to say that one thing I really enjoy about these penguins is that they are easy to color. Now don't judge, I love to color! But sometimes, it's just nice to know that you can grab a cute penguin stamp and make a quick, adorable card! This one certainly qualifies.

I love white cards but I wanted to make the bubbles a bit special so I paper pieced them with some fun colors.  Wouldn't gingham bubbles be so cool!?

Some things to note:
1. All the new stamps and dies will be released on Tuesday, June 17.

2. If you're IN IT TO WIN IT, visit the TCP Forum at Splitcoaststampers to comment and chat on the IN IT TO WIN IT thread every day for an opportunity to score some new TCP goodies.
