TCPTUES153 - Colorful!

Hi everyone! This week we have a beautiful color combo to play with, hosted by the super-talented Tori...we hope you can stop by Tori's blog for all the details on how to play along! These colors just scream sunshine to me, and so does the fabulous brand new Easy Rosette Die that was released last week by The Cat's Pajamas - they've been a huge hit! And if you click on the link to the die, you'll also find the super video that Alma posted to show how to use the dies - it's all there for you!

It's a New Release Blog Hop!

Soooooo, hopefully you're joining me for the New Release Blog Hop by The Cat's Pajamas! If you are hopping through, you'll have arrived here from Carole's blog; if you want to start at the beginning, head over to Julie's blog - she's our Hostess for this TCP Tuesday Challenge.

Julie challenged us to think differently about the shape of our card...yikes! This was a tough one for me! I played around with some shaped dies and came up with this flower-type shape. But what I like best is the AWESOME grass die that is brand new for this release! I love how realistic it looks! The stamp set is called "Wet Puddle" and I was thrilled with how the paper piecing turned out for the little girl's coat and boots!

Thank you, as always, for stopping by! Next stop is Tracy's blog- have fun!

TCP Tuesday - Sweet!

I'm back with a functioning laptop again :) Just in time for Julie's TCP Tuesday challenge...and she has a "sweet" challenge for us to use candy on our cards...I just happened to have some Dove hearts around the house so decided to add one as an embellishment to my card. I think it makes a nice addition! I used the brand new "Got Love" set and included some paper piecing for the balloons.
In other TCP news, Alma is introducing a new feature called "Pick of the Litter" to showcase all the fabulous TCP creations out there! You'll be able to check out the latest Picks at The Cat's Pajamas' Facebook page or at our Forum on Splitcoast Stampers. Hope you can stop by!

Supply Challenge for TCPTUES141

Hi all, here we are starting a week of TCP Sneak Peeks to show off the brand new stamps coming next week from The Cat's Pajamas! Today Jen is our hostess and she's challenging us to use up our ribbon stash - but to use it for anything but a bow!
I used the soon-to-be-released "Bear Hugs" set. Isn't this little guy adorable? For my ribbon technique I simply attached loops of ribbon like little "tabs" on the left-hand side. I really like how it turned out! Thanks, Jen, for the challenge! Don't forget to upload your fabulous creations to Alma's blog so that we can all see what you've done with your ribbon - and your TCP stamp stash! HAVE FUN!

TCP Tuesday Inspiration!

Happy New Year! I'm your hostess for our first TCP Tuesday challenge of 2011 - and we're starting with an inspiration piece - this cute knitted hat from Little Missmatched. I took the "knitted" part and it made me think of The Cat's Pajamas' Divine Twine - so I pierced and stitched, and pierced and stitched some more to highlight this fun stamp set that will be available in just a couple of weeks (it's called "Got Love").
To play along (and be in with a chance to be the first Swanky Stamper of 2011), link your card to the post on Alma's blog and share your creation with us! If you're posting on Splitcoast Stampers, the keyword is TCPTUES140. Have fun!!
