The Cat's Pajamas January Release and Blog Hop


It is release day at the The Cat's Pajamas! Seven new stamps and four new die sets are available for purchase in The Cat's Pajamas shopThe die sets coordinate with four of the stamp sets and will be available to purchase separately or as a discounted bundle. There is also additional discounting known in the TCP world as the Kitty Kat or Poochie Pack.

We are celebrating the release with a blog hop. If you arrived here from the very creative Julee's blog you are in the right place. If not, then please return to Kerry's blog because her beautiful project is the beginning of the hop.




For my first project, I stamped the oh so sweet bunny in a cup from the Make Tea set onto a pierced Neenah cardstock circle. I also stamped and diecut the butterfly from the Year of the Rat Bundle and the floral spray from the Follow the Bunny Bundle. All were colored with Copic Markers then two small images were attached using foam dots. I prepared the card front with patterned paper strips and stamped the sentiment and flourish from the Simply Said said directly onto the panel. The image circle was attached with two layers of cardstock for dimension. 


Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and dies, RC dp, PTI cs, Altenew and PTI ink, Copic Markers
Copics: Bunny-E40, E41, R00, R02; Cup-B0000, B41, B91, B93; Flowers-R0000, R81, W00, E81, Y0000, Y11, YG01, YG03; Butterfly-Y000, Y11; Shadows-B0000




For my second simple project, I stamped and die cut the bunny and feather duster using the Follow the Bunny Bundle and then colored with Copic markers.  I cut a tag from two pieces of patterned paper using the Spring Tag Duo die although I shortened it a bit and then stamped the sentiment from the Don't Feed the Dust Bunnies set. The images were attached using foam dots and seam binding ribbon finished the top. Wouldn't this be cute attached to a housewarming or shower gift along with a basket of cleaning supplies? 
I am a very practical gift giver especially for newly weds. I still can remember how much money it took to acquire the basic supplies.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps, dies and seam binding, Lawn Fawn dies, Altenew and Simon Says ink, Copic Markers
Copics: Bunny-W00, E81, E50, E51, R02, R05; Feather Duster-N1, N3, N5, Y000, Y21

{The Cat's Pajamas Sneak Peek & TCP Tuesday Reminder}


I have taken a month break from cardmaking but I am back with the first day of seven The Cat's Pajamas sneak peeks. There are 7 new stamp sets and 4 new die sets in this release. The die sets coordinate with four of the stamp sets and will be available to purchase separately or as a bundle with special pricing.  All the new products will be available for purchase as revealed throughout the week with the full release on January 28 at which time there will be additional discounting known in the TCP world as the Kitty Kat or Poochie Pack. 


Today we are highlighting the new Spring Cleaning set which also perfectly goes with the January TCP Tuesday #364 Challenge of Spring Forward. You have until the end of the month to complete a project for the challenge for a chance to win a $50 gift voucher to the TCP Store.


I stamped and die cut two of the images using the new Spring Cleaning stamp and die bundle, then colored with Copic markers. For the image panel I created a cutout using the Balloon Frame Die on a white linen panel then backed with patterned paper and added a patterned paper border at the bottom. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the panel and the stamped images were attached with craft foam. A few enamel dots finished it up.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and dies, RC dp, PTI cs, Doodlebug enamel dots, Altenew ink, Copic Markers

I haven't made a card since mid December so it has been great to get back in the saddle again so to speak.
