TCP Septmember Release Blog Hop

Happy September Release from The Cat's Pajamas. All the new products are available in the  TCP Shop NOW! 

We also have a fun Blog Hop for you giving you another dose of inspiration with all the fun, new products. You should have arrived here from the talented Christine Okken's blog. If not then you'll want to start at the beginning with Almas' Blog

First up is my card for the current TCP Tuesday Challenge. It's a color challenge this time and I loved working with the colors. I had yet to use the new Birds Die, so I made sure to for the hop today. I also added a sweet sentiment from the Boo Y'all Stamp set. I selectively inked up the sentiment and left off the "I" and hand wrote in the question mark. 

Here's a closer look. I added the Clouds Border to my scene and along the bottom is the cool, Holiday Toppers cut ups. 

Here is the color board and the inspiration photo. 

I also wanted to play with the Fancy Flip Die and actually make a flip card. I was amazed at how easy this die is to work with. Alma has a great video showing all four card styles this die can do. 
I made a monster card for you today. Along the top I added some Slime/Icicles die and used the Fancy Flip Frames for layering. On the outside is Frank from Eat Drink and Be Scary. 

Inside I used the mummy from Brains I also inked up some of the elements from Vintage Halloween to fill in the empty spaces on the card. The web, spiders, and bats were perfect for the job. 

I had a really hard time photographing how this card works. Here is a shot of it standing up, Frank is on  one side and the mummy is on the other. It's so fun!

I'll send you on your way now. The faaaaabulous Noelle McAdams is next. 

Take a look at all the products I used on today's cards. I used most of the new products. It was a blast mixing and matching all the different stamps and dies. The Fancy Flip die is so fun to work with. 

Happy shopping and hopping! Thanks for all the love this week.
