It is release day for The Cat's Pajamas! All seven of the new stamp sets and five fun 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 fabulous and oh so 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 (TCPTUES207) challenge hostess which is to include flowers on your project.
It is a rarity for me but today's card does not feature any stamping with the exception of the sentiment which is from the Simply Said set (a very good set to own by the way). I really wanted to showcase the new Window Panes CutUps as it was my favorite die set in the new collection. I especially like it because the also includes four small dies of which I have used three on this project, the cat, bird and clay pot.
I was really going for a "barn" look on this so I used the distressed wood panel paper for the barn and the darker version for the window. Most of the flowers came from the punchouts from the Lacy Floral CutUps die. I threaded them onto stems and inserted them in the clay pots allowing them to curl up into the window. Other flowers were scattered in the double layer of grass cut with the Grass Border CutUps. I perched the cat on the window sill and the bird at the top. I'm sure that kitty is admiring the flowers instead of eyeing the bird above. Right?
