Sharing Hope - TCPTUES367 Sharing Hope

Happy Quarantine Day 297,674...  I hope you all are staying healthy and doing well!

There is still plenty of time for you to get a little crafty and play along with the Cat Pack for TCPTUES Challenge of Sharing Hope.  For my card, I turned the super bear from the set Super in to a super doctor.  These hard working medical professionals all around the world deserve all the recognition and thanks possible. Where do you even begin? They are providing a selfless service to the public while sacrificing their own families.  Thank you to all who are still working to keep our fridges full and providing meals to those in need.  Just thank you....

For the main panel, I used the TCP Cut Up of Balloon Frame to make the window and adhered that to the main card.  I then popped up the image inside the frame.  The sentiment was stamped at the top and bottom of the frame and finished the card with a few of the TCP Cut Ups of Stitched Clouds.  I really like how this little guy turned out with the exception that I wish I had made his head cover a bit wider.  Otherwise, I like it.

We hope you will be able to join us and play along! Link your project to the TCP Blog and you could have a chance to win! Thanks for stopping by!

April New Release and Blog Hop - The Cat's Pajamas Stamps

Release day and blog hop is here for The Cat's Pajamas Stamps and there are so many fun sets and Cut Ups for you to add to your collection.  I hope you all have had some time to be a little creative and get lost in your creativity.  If you arrived here from the awesome Wendy's blog, you are in the right place! If not, start here.

Along with this fun blog hop is a new TCPTUES367 challenge! This challenge is about Sharing Hope and we could all use that.  The Kitty Cat Pack have put together an awesome hop and some beautiful hope creations.  

For the hop, I made a birthday tag using the new release set of Messy Birthday.  I am always using tags for gifts and it is one of my favorite things to create.  

I stamped the image an colored it in with Copics before cutting out the shape using TCP Cut Ups of Spring Tag Duo.  I then cut out a piece of patterned paper that would coordinate well and layer the back side with it.  I finished the tag with some ribbon and ready for gift giving.

For the TCPTUES367 challenge, I used the newly released set of Still Life to create this somewhat of a spotlight style card.  The sentiment of "Spring it on" speaks to telling the universe to not only bring along Spring, but whatever is thrown your way. You will overcome!! 

I first stamped the image where I wanted it on the top panel and coloring it with Copics.  I layered it on the black and blush colored cardstock.  I then used my MISTI to line up that panel to where I wanted the background and being able to pop up the layered colored panel.  I finished the card with a few rhinestones which is a little hard to see in the picture.

Thank you so much for hopping in and your next stop is the talented Melissa!

Day 6 - Sneak Peek - The Cat's Pajamas Stamps

Happy Saturday everyone! Although, I suppose that really doesn't matter right now, does it? : ) It's like everyday runs into one another and I really have to think what day it is. I hope you all have some beautiful weather to enjoy at least this weekend.

Today we are peeking into the new fun set of Silly Numbers.  Numbers are great for a variety of occasions and I love that these are not too big.  Perfect for smaller projects.

You can see there are coordinating Cut Ups to match the numbers.  In addition to the numbers, the 'Best Wishes' Cut Ups is new for the month as well and also makes for easy projecting making.  For my card, I used some patterned paper from my scrap stash for the background before layering over the Best Wishes die cut out.  The numbers were stamped in Memento Ink and cut out with the coordinating dies and popped up.  The card was finished adding another sentiment from the new release set of Messy Birthday to pop up below the numbers and some Stickles dotted for some sparkle.  Not sure I love that part, but with Stickles, once its on its on.  : )

I hope you all have been leaving a little love as you have been checking out the sneak peeks! Just leave a comment on either the Cat Packs blog or IG account for your chance to win a TCP Store gift certificate of $10. Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 5 - April Sneak Peek - The Cat's Pajamas Stamps

Day 5 of sneak peeks with The Cat's Pajamas Stamps!! Have you enjoyed seeing all the fun projects the Cat Pack have created? This release is so fun ad perfect for everything Spring. 

Today, I am sharing with you the new set called Get Your Sparkle On.  This set is super cute and wonderful to make pick me up cards.

I pictured this cutie running around swirling her wand around that I decided to use the TCP Flutter By die to create her trail of sparkle.  The image was colored with Copics and fussy cut out to be popped up.  Her crown was colored in with Wink of Stella in gold and topped with some Sakura clear glitter gel pen.  I then used that same pen to run across the swirls for a little sparkle.  The card was then finished with some pearls and rhinestones and the sentiment stamped directly onto the panel. 

Be sure to stop over on the TCP Blog to see all the fabulous creations for the week so far, but also be sure to leave a little love here or on my IG page for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the TCP store! Thanks for stopping by!

Sneaky Peek Day 2 - The Cat's Pajamas Stamps - Let There Be Cake

It's Sneaky Peek Day 2 for The Cat's Pajamas!  I hope you have had a chance to peek at yesterdays fun sneak and all the gorgeous creations the Cat Pack put together.

Today we are going to share a sneak for you called Let There Be Cake! This is a fun set that reminds me of cake maybe you'd find in Alice in Wonderland. : )  To keep with this fun and wonky look, I created an off center panel card to match the cake.

I started with a light green cardstock base and off centered my main layer panel.  The cake pieces were stamped using different Memento ink colors and layered on top of the cake stand after cutting it out and popping it up. I used the flag instead of candles and finished the card with a few pearls and rhinestones for some sparkle and two different sized ric rack ribbon at the bottom.

Be sure to head over to the TCP Blog to see all the wonderful creations made for you to get your mojo flowing during some down time you may have.  Are you
