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!

Back in time with TCP Tuesday!

This week Alma is having us go back through all our TCP Tuesday challenges (almost 150 of them!) and pick one of our faves - I chose TCP Tuesday 98 - paper piecing!

Feeling Lucky?

Susan is our fabulous Hostess this week for TCP Tuesday - and she's challenging us to think all about "luck" - make someone a good luck card or a St. Paddy's Day card using your TCP stamps! This kind of occasion is perfect for using the ever-popular "A Beary Good Year" set. Who can resist P.J. and all those accessories??

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!
