Are you ready for another fabulous release with The Cat's Pajamas? Alma always comes up with some super fun dies that can be used for all occasions and stamp sets that always makes you giggle. This release has some perfect dad and grad images and sentiments that will hit home.



You should have hopped over here from the talented Julie's blog.  If not, be sure to start there so you don't miss a thing!  For my first card, I am using the new set called Welcome to the Funny Farm.  I just love it!  And I really didn't plan it to be just like the blog hop image!




I made this card CAS to keep the focus on these cuties and perfectly stated to match! :)  The image was stamped and colored in with Copics.  It was complete with a few self-adhesive pearls.

For my second card, I am using the new set of Change the World. Perfect for that upcoming grad who will soon move mountains.  The sentiments in this set are just what is needed to support the next generation.




The image was stamped and colored in with Copics before fussy cutting it out. The paper is one from Basic Grey while the top panel is cut out using the TCP CutUps of  Framed Up.  The card was complete by popping up the image and sentiment, adding a few dots around the frame, and some ribbon.

Your Next Stamp - Feature Day - Spring Showers

Happy Sunday everyone!

It's time for the Your Next Stamp Feature Day with the DT and the theme this month is Spring Showers.  This is a great theme with all the wonderful sets the YNS Store has to offer with flowers and Spring.  But no other set came to mind for me than this one I used called Puddles of Fun.


I stamped the image and colored it in with Copics before cutting it out with the coordinating dies.  The patterned paper is from the YNS Spring Time collection and cut out using the Chunky Grass die, which by the way, is on sale in the YNS Store for only $1 !! For the raindrops, I used the new Raindrop die and popped up the image next to the sentiment.  The card was finished with some fun, yummy gumdrops for added color.

Be sure you stop by the YNS Blog to see all the wonderful creations the DT have made and leave a little love for a chance for you to win a stamp set of your choice!! Thanks for taking a peek!

April Sneaky Peeks for The Cat's Pajamas Stamps



It's time for April's Sneaky Peek with The Cat's Pajamas Stamps and this release is ready for all your celebrations.  


The first card I am sharing is one using the new set of Asian Spring.  This is such a beautiful set and one I really had to try my hand at coloring on cardstock with colored pencils.  I love the look this gives and I think it was a perfect choice to pair with this set.


Since this set does not have any sentiments, I used one from the set of Simply Said and kept it simple.

For my second card, I kept is really CAS and hope you will be able to see what I see IRL. :)   Using the new set of 'Tini, I heat embossed the image on the front panel and added the new Cut Up of Cheers above it.

The glass was embossed with both a white detail powder and an iridescent clear for some sparkle.  The "wine" was also heat embossed using a garnet colored powder, while "cheers" was cut out using a white sparkle card stock.

Unicorns Rock! Your Next Stamp Friday Challenge

Unicorns are all the rage right now. So why not add a fun stamp set to your collection? This new set from YNS is super cute and fun to color - Unicorns Rock..  It is perfect to pair with the current sketch challenge which is what I did to create this card.





I had some left over glitter card stock cut outs which came in perfectly for this sketch.  I stamped the image and colored her in with Copics before cutting it out with the coordinating die.  The sentiment was stamped and popped up to have the swing come down from that.  The panel was cut out using the YNS Stitched Rectangle die set and the card was finished with some gold glitter pen over the stars and some Wink of Stella over the mane.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you play along with us to link up your creation on the YNS Blog!

Thanks a Melon - DT Dare Your Next Stamp

Happy Wednesday! It's time for another Your Next Stamp DT Dare and the theme is Gratitude. I am sharing with you a card made from the new release of One in a Melon and the new release of Watermelon Slice die.  This stamp set is a fun set perfect for so many occasions.


I paired the main image and die with the new YNS Watermelon Party paper collection to tie the whole look together.  I used the image to "sit" on top of the watermelon with the sentiment stamped at the top. The stitched panels were made using the YNS Stitched Rectangle die set. Simple and perfect to express your gratitude.

April New Release - Your Next Stamp


It's hhheeeerrrre! The April release for Your Next Stamp! Did you get a chance to see all the fabulous creations from the DT? There is so much fun and "Summer" in this release.


For my first card, I am using the One in a Melon set.  This is adorable and perfect to pair with the watermelon slice die the yummy new Watermelon Party paper collection that is being released too.




I used the new paper collection as my background before layering it the Doily Trio one for the flamingo to be popped up over.  The sentiment was added and I thought it would be nice to outline 'melon' with a coordinating color.  But it didn't turn out as well as I wanted.

For my second card, I am using the super cute set of Unicorns Rock.  Unicorns are in and this set is perfect.






I colored in the image with Copics and cut it out with the coordinating die.  For the glitter panel, I took a piece of cardstock and covered it with Versamark before adding some iridescent embossing powder over it for lots of sparkle.  A silver glitter heart and some glittered gumdrops were the added finishing touches for this little cutie. This set will be a cute one to color up!



Of course Karen has a fabulous discount to offer with this new release so you don't want to miss that!  Thanks for hopping in!

Fur friends need fun selfies too and this adorable set is perfect! : )  For my card, I stamped the images and colored them in with Copics before putting them in the frame over the patterned paper.  Each frame is popped up while I added a sentiment on the bottom one and a sentiment in a fishtail banner across the center.  The card was finished with some gumdrops.

TCPTUES345 - Spring - The Cat's Pajamas

Happy Tuesday crafty friends!

Today is a new TCPTUES challenge and it is all about Spring!  I don't know about you, but I am very ready for Spring.  I've been patiently waiting for it to arrive, but Winter is taking its time to make a stage left departure. In the meantime, come play along with us and link up your creation for a chance to win a TCP store gift certificate.

For my card, I am using the new release Cut Up of Butterfly Trio to create this partial die cut edge card. 


The inside was made to match the colors of the butterflies and the sentiment heat embossed in white.  It was finished with some self-adhesive pearls to pretty it up a little more.  While this card front could be made to have the angle you want to be cut and then placing the butterflies over it, the focal technique is to stamp and cut around that image partially. So my card was done in three parts due to the lacy style of the butterfly and putting the cardstock behind it and then partially cutting out the edge with the Cut Up.  I still like how it turned out and will definitely need to make another one using a stamp.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by the TCP Blog to see the other beautiful Spring creations the cat pack!

Party Time - Your Next Stamp Friday Challenge

Happy Friday!

There is still time to play along and link up your creation to the YNS Challenge for this fun sketch and color challenge.  This is a perfect sketch to use some washi tape you may have been wanting to use. 

For my card, I am using the cutest set of Snorkel Fun Penguin paired up with the sketch.



I stamped the image and masked it before sponging the background with some Distress Inks and sprayed with a little water.  The image was colored with Copics and I used some patterned paper from Authentique.  The card was finished with some Gum Drops and a little bit of washi tape at the top before adding a little fishtail strip with the sentiment.

We hope you will be able to join us in this challenge for your chance to win a YNS gift certificate! Be sure to stop by the  YNS Blog to see all the fun creations some of the DT members have made.  Have a great weekend!
