{The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek} Tree-mendous

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 Stamp sets 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 she 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!

This release will be available for purchase on November 27.

Today's we are showing you Tree-Mendous which I have featured on a simple step card. I colored up big bear with Copics, paper piecing his belly and then fussy cut him out. I used the Pennant CutUps to create a big Christmas tree, decorating with buttons and tinsel twine, topping off with a star cut with the 3x3 Stars CutUps. I also used the Holiday Toppers to create a winter landscape on the front step, adding the sentiment to a piece cut with the smallest piece from the Circus Panels CutUps.
