TCPTUES 362 - Fall

Happy Tuesday everyone! 

There is still time to lay along in The Cats Pajamas Stamps challenge of Fall. The weather is cooler and the colors are quickly changing. There is much inspiration to get your mojo flowing for this challenge. 

For my card, I am using the TCP die sets of Leaves, Wreath Building Set, and the Big Little Alphabet. A very CAS card using patterned paper and the dies to created a very autumn colored card. For the accent stamped leaves and curls and sentiment, I used the stamp set of The Year of the Pig.

We hope you are able to play along and link up your project for your chance to win! Thanks for stopping by and have a great Tuesday!

Your Next Stamp Friday Challenge - Go Long!

Happy Friday!!

It's another fun challenge over on the Your Next Stamp's blog and it's a great one to get you out of your comfort zone.  Go long is the challenge and it is making a card in a size of 3.75" x 9".  This size is always fun to do since it is never a size we gravitate to in making a standard card.  I forgot how unique and fun it is creating with this size.

For my card, I am using the set of Party Pets.  I just love this set and the cute animals in it.

This is a single layer card which I created the cloud background with the YNS Puffy Cloud Border die and sponging in some Distress Ink.  The grass is cut using the YNS Stitched Grass die while the image was stamped and colored with Copics before cutting it out with the coordinating die and popping it up with some foam tape.  I used the YNS Mini Balloon die set for the look of other balloons flying away.  The card was finished with a few sequins. 

Leave a little love on either the YNS Blog, IG, or Facebook page and a random comment will be chosen to win a YNS Stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

The Cat's Pajamas Stamps TCPTUES362 - Fall

Happy Tuesday everyone!

It's a new challenge over at The Cat's Pajamas Stamps and it's all about Fall!  The weather has been so warm, it feels more like Summer than Autumn. But this west coast girl is not complaining.  I will soak in the warmth as long as I can. 

The Kitty Cat Pack have made some awesome creations around the season of Fall that you don't want to miss.  For my project, I created a diorama that is a bit out of the box but can't be done in various ways.  With the newest release that just happened with TCP stamps, there are some birch trees that is perfect.

This scene was made using the new Birch Snow Globe die and made for an easy diorama.  I started with the background sponging in some Distress Inks to get the "sky" how I wanted. The bottom color is actually a bit more of a deep purple with some grey, but as you can see, it looks a bit more brownish black.  I then added the birch layer by attaching that panel to the background with some accordion fold side pieces. I used the birds from the TCP die set of Birdcage for the added birds and then finished the scene by adding the frame on top of that layer with another set of accordion fold sides.   For the finishing pieces, I added some of the TCP Hole-less Sequins and the sentiment from another die I have.

Be sure to stop by the TCP Blog to see all the awesome creations and hope you can play along.  You can have a chance at winning by uploading your creation to the link! Thanks for stopping in and have a great week!

The Cat's Pajamas Stamps September New Release and Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday!! The new release and Blog Hop from The Cat's Pajamas Stamps is here! Just in time for your Halloween creativity to thrive.  This release is amazing with not only many stamp sets and dies, but some fabulous stencils!! If you arrived here from Wendy's blog, you are in the right place! If not, be sure to start here.

My first card here is using the Birch Forest Stencil set and the Peace Love Joy die. 

Using some distress inks, I used the TCP Big Beautiful Blending Brush to blend in the deer where I wanted to place him.  Then using the birch stencil, I created the background again using the brush and finished the card with the sentiment die which I cut out with some fun foam for the dimension before adhering it to the front.  It was completed using some TCP Clear Hole-less Sequins.

This second card is a bit over my head.  I apologize to all the Harry Potter fans out there, but I have never seen or read any of the series! (GASP!) SO! this set of Snapes Alive was a little challenging, since I wasn't totally sure of the sentiments and the meaning. lol! But that is ok! Just Bunny alone in a cloak and hat would make a great Halloween card. 

The background was made using the Twist Stencil brushing on a little distress ink. The Birch Snowglobe die was used in creating the die background for the image to be popped over it.  The image was stamped and colored in with Copics and the owl was popped up over a branch.  I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card base.

Thanks for hopping by and next up is the fabulous Christine! I hope you are making a list as you hop! :)


September Sneaky Peek - The Cat's Pajamas Stamps

Are you ready for another sneaky peek? Just one more day before you can get your hands on the new release!

Today, I am giving you a peek of an adorable set called Grab the Unicorn. These guys are just too cute and you will want to grab them. Well, the set, but you understand.  :)

How adorable is this set? I really pictured some rainbow colors and thought it would be fun to made a simple watercolor dripped background to add the image to. I used some Tim Holtz watercolor paper and Distress Inks for that.  I colored the image with Copics and fussy cut him out before popping him up.  The clouds were stamped directly onto the rainbow panel and watercolored in as well.  I then stamped the sentiment directly onto the panel and sprayed the whole front lightly with my homemade water shimmer. 

A lucky winner will win a $10 gift certificate to the TCP store just by leaving a comment here or on my IG page.  Also, you don't want to miss the other wonderful creations some of the kitties have done, so be sure to head over to the TCP Blog to see them all.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to hop along tomorrow with the kitty cat pack for the new release!  Have a great Monday!
