TCP-June Release Sneaky Peeks Day 1

It's an exciting week up  ahead. The Cat's Pajamas has new stamps and Cutups releasing. You won't want to miss out. I have a sample for each day this week. We are kicking things off with a the TCPTues Challenge (it's a color challenge, see graphic below) and this sweet penguin set called Strange and Wonderful!

I used my favorite circle frame from Framed Up 2 to showcase this new penguin, Strange and Wonderful. I stamped him in momento tuxedo black ink and colored him up with copics.  I used a stippled marker technique to create a playful background for him. 

Check out those butterflies! They are NEW!!! Those teeny tiny ones are actually cut outs from the larger butterfly! Brilliant, isn't it?!! The die is called Butterflies

Come play along with this week's TCPTues Challenge. Use these colors and link up. All the details are on the TCP BLOG.

  1. I love this card Lisa - the framed up penquin is adorable as is the scattering of butterflies.

  2. LOVE the stippled background you made... I cannot master that no matter how hard I try! The penguin is so cute, and the pink polka dots are fantastic! And the butterflies...how sweet and clever are those dies?!?!?!

  3. Adorable and an awesome layout too!

  4. So pretty! Love your stippled background and how you framed the penguin inside the opening of the circle die cut.


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
