Sweets for the Sweet (The Cat's Pajamas Sneak Peek)

Before you finalize your TCP shopping list, The Cat Pack has two more days of sneak peeks for you. Today we are showing you projects using the new Love Stinks stamp set featuring those cute little penguins.

I picked up this pretty pink Valentine lollipop just the other day while traveling home from our North Carolina trip thinking it would be fun to use on a sneak peek project. I attached it to a pre-made paper doily  with double sided tape (package of heart doilies came from a craft store). To further secure it I threaded some Rose Seam Binding through two of the holes at the bottom, then wrapped around the lollipop stick, ending in a bow. I stamped one of the penguins in the set onto Copics X-Press It, cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities and then colored with Copics. I used my Fiskars fingertip knife to cut a slit at the bottom of the heart image, and then inserted a patterned paper heart cut with the Heart Trio CutUps. I placed dimensional dots underneath to give it some lift. I made a tag shape from an older piece of American Crafts patterned cardstock using a pre-made tag as a template, attaching the stamped image which was layered onto a Martha Stewart paper doily. The sentiment also came from this set. I tied the completed tag onto the lollipop stick with some Peppermint Divine Twine that is also new to the TCP shop. Easy, fun and a perfect Valentine for a sweet little girl I know.
