{The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek and TCP Tuesday) Snow Kisses


The Cat's Pajamas is now 10 years old! Alma started making rubber stamps at her dining room table, hand cutting rubber and cushion and attaching them to wood blocks to sell to the local stamp stores where she was teaching.
And so much has happened to stamping in 10 years. But our love of stamping is still going strong. So this release, we are excited to celebrate the way we started. With rubber stamps. Not just any rubber stamps. Cling Stamps for easy storage and positioning. Perfect for those who love rubber, but also love the convenience and ease of clear. Limited Edition because these stamps are extra special, lovingly assembled at Alma's dining room table. Just like we did 10 years ago. So snap them up, because only a small number will be made. Her table is only so big.
There are five CutUps Dies in this release. Along with some "classics" that belong in every die collection, we are so excited to introduce our "Toppers" line. They are shapes that you can use the positive and negatives of to create borders and panels. They are open-ended so that you can create panels of any size using the toppers. You can place them individually or use them together. Endless possibilities!

We're kicking things off with a TCP Tuesday (TCPTUES237) supply challenge from our hostess Julie to use a wood element.

You can't have a TCP release without a penguin set so today we are featuring the new Snow Kisses set. I showcased "Larry" on a side step card. I stamped him onto Copics X-Press It cardstock and also stamped a couple of the small snowflakes from the set in Memento Pear Tart and Ranger Vermillion Archival Ink. I added a couple of more snowflake diecuts which were leftover from previous projects using the Snowflake Lace Paper CutUps. Do you spot the new CutUps? I used one of the new Holiday Toppers CutUps on the back "step" and then topped it with the sentiment. On the front "step" I added a pre-made element which matches the My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland patterned paper. The wood element for the challenge was a wooden button tied with the Holiday Divine Twine and used to anchor the scalloped border cut with the Queen of Hearts CutUps
