The Cat's Pajamas January Release Blog Hop

It is release day at the The Cat's Pajamas! Four new stamps, four new dies and two colors of holeless sequins are available for purchase in The Cat's Pajamas shop. We are celebrating the release with a blog hop. If you arrived here from from our extremely talented guest designer Julee's blog you are in the right place. If not, then please return to Kerry's blog because she is the beginning of the hop.

I have three projects to share with you today.

First up is a card featuring the adorable Don't Be Koi set. I actually trimmed an inch off the bottom of an A2 size to make a smaller card. The patterned paper was cut with the Grass CutUps and applied to a white background. The bunny and pail of hearts were colored with Copic Markers and then fussy cut out. After attaching to the card base with a layer of craft foam, I added the hearts between the bunny ears cut with dies from the Nested Hearts CutUps. I cut the small heart dangling on the fishing pole with a die from the Alpacas CutUps.

Next up is a tag I created for a small welcome home gift for someone who just got out of the hospital and loves iced coffee, especially of the flavored variety.

I cut the tag from brown cardstock using a die from the Spring Tag Duo CutUps, then the matted word cut from green and white cardstock using the new Stitched Enjoy CutUps. For the coffee cup, I stamped the top image from the Freshly Brewed Heaven set onto Neenah cardstock using soft stone ink, then cut out with the matching die plus the rest of the coffee cup from cardstock and patterned paper using dies from the Coffee Clatch CutUpsthen attached to the tag using foam tape. A few enamel dots and twine in the tag hole finished it up.

One last very small project. I used the tag die from the Holiday Tag Duo CutUps to cut from Neenah cardstock although I shortened it to about two inches long. See, I told you it was small! After stamping the image from the Spit Happens set, I colored with Copic markers and then attached to the small vase using twine. This is also a small gift.
