TCP Sneaky Peek {day 5}


We are getting closer and closer to release day with The Cat's Pajamas. I can't wait. Today's set is sooooo great. I love the giant moon and the crazy trio of penguins having fun. It's called Constellation Prize. I made a sweet little flat shaker card with some vellum and the awesome Stitched Clouds Cut ups. seriously LOVE those dies. I attached some vellum and added an assortment of sequins behind it.

I colored up the Constellation Prize image with my Copics and then did a little fussy cutting to cut them out. I added the to my card front and then stamped the sentiment with some Ombre inks on a Lemon Chiffon strip of card stock. 

here's a closer look. I also added a little bit of shimmer with a wink of stella clear glitter. More glimmer was added with some silver glitter paper and the Stars Cutups



If you don't have those yet, make sure to pop them into your card. I Love the outline dies. They rock.

TCP Sneaky Peek {day 4}

The fun continues with The Cat's Pajamas sneak peeks. What is your favorite so far, or should I ask favorites?? Maybe today's set is just what you've been waiting for. It's quite lovely. It's called Take Flight

 I chose to not use any of the birds and instead focused on the birdhouses. I cut a few from the coordinating Birdhouse Cut Ups and mounted them onto a Framed Up 2 circle. I added some embossed polka dots from Dots Cut Ups. A trio of Stitched Clouds were added to the background. Gosh those clouds are awesome!


I created a custom background with some of the hearts from Take Flight. I then added the sentiment in Blueberry ink. 





Here is the info you need to know about the release: 
  1. All the new stamps and cutups will be released on Tuesday, May 26th.

Totally Tassle REMINDER

**Please Scroll Down for my TCP Sneaky Peek!**


There is still time to join us for the Totally Tassel Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  

You have until May 25th at 8:00 AM CDT to be inspired and share your project!



The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

And don't forget We have a wonderful returning sponsor, Newton's Nookfor the Curtain Call Inspiration: Totally Tassel!  A randomly selected participant in this challenge will receive a $30 gift certificate to use at Newton's Nook while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!


I made a sweet festive tag. I really wanted to use more of the adorable Newton's Nook products (check them out if you haven't done so before), but I just couldn't help myself and HAD to use the super cool Tassel Confetti Cut by Reverse Confetti.  Here's a close up of it. I simply cut 3 pieces of gold tissue paper and then wrapped some gold twine around the top so I could attach it to the top of my tag. 

I used Tag Me, too to cut my tag shape, and snipped off the scalloped bottom. I then added a sentiment from Circle Sentiments onto a Circles 'n Scallops die. I topped that with the "congratulations" sentiment from Fancy Word Coordinates on the banner from Tag Me. I scattered some pretty sequins to complete the party feel! 









Have a great Thursday! See you back tomorrow for another Sneak Peek from TCP!

TCP Sneaky Peek {day 3}

We are day 3 into the Sneaky Peeks for The Cat's Pajamas May release! If you haven't checked out the past two days, be sure to scroll through and see what you missed. It's all good stuff! 

Today's set is called In Shape and there are some awesome sentiments to go along with the great summer image. I just love the lounging Bun. I used a pointillism technique for coloring up the bunny (lots of little dots in different shades of browns and grays to give some texture and highlighting). I also used the new Stitched Fly frame (with the word trimmed out). I really love the look of this open frame with the stitching....it's awesome and has so many uses. 




I added in a fresh and graphic flower using the Flower Button Cut Ups. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of designer paper in black ink. 



Here is the info you need to know about the release: 
  1. All the new stamps and cutups will be released on Tuesday, May 26th.
  2. For a chance to win today's set, leave a comment on each of the sneak peek posts and on the TCP blog
  3. Visit the new TCP Facebook page every day for the randomly drawn winner of the previous day's new set.   
  4. Save the date for the Pajama Party on Monday, May 25th from 8-10PM EST.

TCP Sneaky Peek {day 2}

The fun times have begun! Did you catch the kick off to The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek week yesterday?? All week long we will be sharing all the new goodies you can purchase on May 25! Don't miss what we shared yesterday. You can read all about it on the TCP Blog. 

This sweet guy is from the new set called I Are Fun. I stamped him onto x-press it blending card stock and then colored him up with my Copics. I then cut him out. 

I used the Stitched Clouds to create a playful background by using the negative space of the clouds and mounting the colorful rays paper onto a white card base. This allowed for the white to peek through with the clouds. I popped up my bear with foam dimensionals and scattered some pretty sequins about. 





Here is the info you need to know about the release: 



  1. All the new stamps and cutups will be released on Tuesday, May 26th.
  2. For a chance to win today's set, leave a comment on each of the sneak peek posts and on the TCP blog

TCP Sneaky Peeks! {day 1}

More excitement happening this week on the blog. I love being a part of a new release. I feel very blessed to work with some of the most amazing stamp companies out there! Today we are kicking off the May Release for The Cat's Pajamas



I had some color therapy time with this gem. I LOVE that hot air balloon! The stamp set is called Drop In. I think this makes a prefect card for any grad! 


I also paired it with some of my FAVORITE TCP dies ever!!! Here is a close up. 



 Check out that stitched frame.....it's a new Cut Up you can purchase next week. It's called Fly cut ups. It is a sweet little pocket page size, but looks great on card fronts too. It includes some great stitched clouds and a scipty word fly....it's soooo cool! Here I just snipped out the word "fly" to create the frame all by itself. I also added some of the new Stitched Clouds. I couldn't resist adding a little sweet stitched hill side, so I cut a Wavy Stitched Border and just trimmed it down to fit the bottom of my frame. Some sweet Orange Devine twine finished this card off. 

Be sure to join us all week for Sneak Peeks at all the new products and then on release night for the Pajama Party! 

For now, head to the TCP Blog and be sure to hop through the design team blogs that are sharing sneak peaks today. Leave comments for a chance to win it! Check back to the TCP Facebook Page to see if you are a winner!
