Sending Birthday Wishes {The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek}

We're kicking off the first day of The Cat's Pajamas latest release with a TCP Tuesday (TCPTUES206) inspiration challenge from our hostess Jen. I don't know about you but I've been really wanting some new TCP goodness. This release came just in time as I was thinking about sending a search party after Alma!

Today we are featuring the new graphic set Commemorating You which is perfect for the postal themed inspiration piece. I started out by cutting a trio of stamps from plain white cardstock using the Stamp Trio CutUps. I then used 8 different stamps from the set to decorate them, including the sentiment which crosses over the three stamps. I finished them by sponging light blue ink on the backgrounds. The glassine envie came from my stash as well as the Making Memories button. I tied them both off with the fun Airmail Divine Twine. Trust me, if you don't have this yet, you need it!!

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and CutUps, Divine Twine, Basic Grey dp, Making Memories button

All the details for this TCP Tuesday challenge can be found on Alma’s blog as well as the list of the Cat Pack members who have a sneak peek today! And, don’t forget that Alma is giving away a set a day to someone that posts on the IN IT TO WIN IT thread on the TCP forum on SCS.
