It is release day for The Cat's Pajamas! All seven of the fabulous new stamp sets and four new Cutups dies are available now from The Cat's Pajamas shop.
Since it is release day that also means a blog hop. I hope you arrived here from Jenny's blog where I am sure she had something super creative for you to enjoy. If not, head on over to Julie's blog to start at the beginning. Julie is this week's TCP Tuesday (TCPTUES192) challenge hostess which is to include embossing whether wet or dry to your project.
Today's card features the latest OuOu image called Warm Fuzzies. I paper pieced most of the image using various papers from the Basic Grey Jovial pad. I replaced the scarf fringe with white pom poms and added a tiny heart over the barrette image. The skin, hair, boots and the bird were colored with Copic markers. For the embossing portion of the challenge, I used the Snow Flake Lace paper CutUps to emboss rather than diecut and used it for the background panel for the image. I added the sentiment which made me laugh the first time I saw it. I am so not a winter person and generally ask "is it spring yet" before December is over. Since I used patterns and colors from a Christmas paper pad, I wanted to make sure it had a winter look and not a Christmasy vibe so I added the background paper from a Fancy Pants pad and kept the color scheme simple. I used one of my very favorite CutUps, the big Snowflake to add to the wintery theme, making the hole in the center a bit larger so I could thread the Cream Seam Binding through it to tie a bow. A few buttons from the Sweet Things Button set provided the finishing touch.
