{The Cat's Pajamas Sneak Peek} Hello There


Is it already day four of the The Cat's Pajamas sneak peeks? Are you making a list of your favorites? Today we are showcasing the new Hello There CutUps.


I LOVED this die the minute I found it in my design team package. You can go as simple or as detailed as you want to be with this one. As you can see, I went simple even though I originally thought I would use it with the new Sketchy Flowers set to be showcased in a couple of days from now. Bear with me as I have a "grandmother" type story for this one. My daughter-in-law dropped off my two year old granddaughter bright and early one morning. So early, that my husband was still in the bed. So when he got up and walked into the family room with us, he said to her "well hello there sunshine". Thus, the idea was born for this card. 

I prepared the background by using the smooshing on acetate technique with Bright Buttercup ink onto Ranger Distress Watercolor card stock. I then stamped the sentiment from the also new Sending You set which will be featured tomorrow directly onto the panel using Orange Fizz ink. I die cut out the Hello There sentiment three times, layering them for added dimension. The "sun" was cut from patterned paper using a die from the County Fair CutUps which is one of my favorite dies ever. I topped the sun with an enamel dot and added some tiny yellow sequins to finish it up.
