{The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek - Day 2} Bearing Flowers

***Scroll down one more post for this week's All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge***


Good morning. I am so excited to be helping Alma and The Cat Pack with sneak peeks of the latest and greatest The Cat's Pajamas collection. How did I land this gig you ask? I was the May Swanky Stamper which means I not only scored some totally awesome new stamps and CutUps but I can also play along with the design team this week. If being a Swanky Stamper is something that interests you too, check out the details here. Afterall, you gotta be in it to win it!

Today's sneak peek features the latest version of P.J. the bear from the new "Bearing Flowers" set. I wiped away the flower portion of the image before stamping onto Copics X-Press It blending cardstock. After cutting the image with a circle Nestie I sponged around the edges with ink while it was still in the die. After coloring P.J. with Copic Markers, I then made a dimensional flower using the new and fabulous Rosette Sunflower CutUps, using pop dots to attach. The patterned paper is a mix of new (Echo Park Summer Days) and old (Ki Memories and Autumn Leaves). The Ki alphabet paper is one of my very favorite pieces of paper ever so I hoard it like crazy since it can't be replaced. Only something as cute as P.J. would make me cut into it. The bee brad on the flower is something I've had in my stash forever too. I love the sentiments in this set and had a hard time choosing which one I wanted to use.

And while I am at it, I'm using this card for this week's TCP Tuesday (TCPTUES164) which is - get this - use any TCP bear in your project. Hmm.....I don't think that was a coincidence!

  1. Super sweet Nancy! That bee brad is just the perfect complement to the whole project! I'm glad that I am not the only one who hoards their favorite papers. I will often purchase backups for my favorites.

  3. Congrats on getting the Swanky Stamper of the month, Nancy! I'm not surprised because you continually make the greatest cards just like this one! It's so fun and the papers are perfect. (my projects have to pass the 'KI worthy' test too before I use my hoarded papers on it!) Everything just goes together so wonderfully and the card makes me smile! :)
