TCP November Release is Here and TCPTues!

The wait is over....It's time for the November Release by The Cat's Pajamas. I appreciate all the kind words you have all left over the past week. Thanks a bunch! Now it's time to shop!

I've got two cards to share today for the Blog Hop.  My first one is a bit soft and pretty with a surprise inside! I used one of the beautiful new Double Snowflakes and layered on a felt Heart Trio. I stamped a sentiment from Melt My Ice on the bottom right. 

This one is hard to show the actual movement on the inside, but my skating sheep ACTUALLY move thanks to the cool new Pop Up Pivot.


Here is a closer look at the cutie couple. I colored them up with Copic and then cut them out.  I also used another sentiment from the Melt My Ice stamp set. 


It's Tuesday and that means it's time for the next TCPTues challenge. It's a color challenge this go round and we hope you'll join us. Check out all the challenge details on Alma's Blog.



I loooove this classic color combo and it was a great way to show off the awesome new Home for all Seasons stamp set. I used the matching cut up die, Village.


I used the Holiday Toppers to create a snowy hill for my house and then I found a sweet little snowflake left over from the Snowflake Lacey Paper cut up, so I added that to the top with a scattering of sequins. 


That's it from me. I will send you on your way. The talented Lyn Wallan-Smith (Swanky Stamper) is up next. 



There is an AWESOME SALE GOING ON....GO SHOP!!!

Here is another look at the new products I used on today's cards. 







Have a great day!!!

TCP Final Day of Sneaky Peeks

One more day.....the Cat's Pajamas release is TOMORROW!!! We have one more set to show off, it's called Reindeer Kisses. It's A-dorable! 


I used the current Freshly Made Sketches no. 167 for my layout. I colored my reindeer on x-press it blending cs and then pieced him up onto the kraft layer. I used the Holiday, Celebration Topper cut up to accent my left side of the panel. It was the perfect embellishment. There are LOTS of great sentiments in this stamp set to choose from. This one is my favorite. 



Be sure to join the fun over in the TCP Forum at Splitcoast for the In It To Win It prizes and chatter! The party starts there!

Sweet Sunday Sketch no.246 {warm winter wishes}

**please scroll down for my TCP Sneak Peek and 25 Days of HOliday Tags post**

Good morning. It's a two post Sunday for me. I'm here with my Sweet Sunday Sketch for the week. I was itching to use the newest Reverse Confetti stamps and dies. I just Branch Out the Confetti cut


I created a snow-like background by stamping Whole Lotta Dots with Sweet Tooth Pigment ink on Sno Cone cardstock.  The sentiment is from Seasonal Sentiments. I love how this stamp set has holiday and winter sentiments so you can continue to use it after the holidays. 

I layered up a Let it Snow snow flake on top of the trees and added a sweet little red twine bow.  I used Lawn Fawn papers for my trees and the strip. They are soooo cute and I love the colors. 


Here is the sketch.

TCP Sneaky Peeks Day 6 (Tracey's 25 Days of Holiday Tags)

It's day 6 of the sneak peeks for the Cat's Pajama's November release.  That means we are another day closer to the big November release. 



 My little holiday treat gifty is doing double time as I am also joining in on Tracey's 25 Days of Holiday Tags blog Hop. I posted another tag earlier in the week and I have another one today, as I join the Curtain Call Crew to give more tag inspiration. I'm using the new TCP stamp set Handmade Holiday. It's so sweet and will be the perfect edition to all your gift giving this year. Make sure you go to Her Blog to see more tag inspiration. 


Here is a closer look at my tag. I used the Fancy Flip Frames to make my tag and layered it up with the circle stamp from Handmade Holiday.  I attached it to my treat bag (filled with some hot cocoa and candy canes) with some silver twine and a teeny silver jingle bell. Seriously, I love making tags from just about any shape. Adding a stamped image and some pretty ribbon always makes it shine!



I used a few other TCP products for my gifty today. I created my own polka dotted stencil with the Stencil Blanks and Dots cut ups. I used it to sponge on Festive berry distress ink. The muslin drawstring bags can be found in the shop, too. There are 2 sizes.....grab a few for your holiday gift giving.

TCP Sneaky Peeks Day 5 {wonderful time of year}

We are getting closer and closer to the big release day with The Cat's Pajamas. I hope you are enjoying all the beautiful and fun things we've been sharing. Today I went really simple, yet with the details in the Double SnowFlake dies, it turned out soooo stunning, don't you think? 


The sentiment is beautiful, too. It's from the Melt My Ice. I looooove the sheep in the set, but I wanted to really show off those new snowflakes. I added some pretty clear sequins and some smaller snowflakes cut from the Snowflake Lace Paper cut up.
