TCP Tuesday is Back!!

***This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for my Sweet November for All That Scraps project.***

After a long hiatus, TCP Tuesday is back. Only, we've changed it up a bit and the details are at the bottom of this post - along with a special surprise!

To kick things off we have a supply challenge for you. We are challenging you to bring out your existing The Cat's Pajamas stamps and dies and use them in a new and creative way. For example, if you primarily use your stamps for cards, how about changing it up a bit to use them on a home decor piece or a scrapbook page? Or, if you have a TCP stamp set or die that has not been used before pull it out and use it! Or use a stamp set in a way in which it was not originally intended which is what I did with my card.

I had one stamp set from the last release that I didn't get a chance to use during the preview week which was The New Nice set. Although the sentiments were all Christmas related, I didn't let that stop me from making a birthday card instead. I colored the gifts in a variety of happy colors and then cut out the image, attaching it to the embossed circle. I then went in search of another set that had a birthday sentiment. I found one from the Birthday Bunny set and it was stamped onto one of the pieces from the Circus Panels CutUps. The sawtooth border was cut with the Big Pinking Border CutUps.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and CutUps, My Mind's Eye and Simple Stories dp, Craft Concepts embossing folder (Hexagon Illusion), Spellbinders Nestabilities. Copic Markers
Copics: BG0000, BG01, BG53, YG0000, YG01, YG23, YR0000, YR01, YR12, R01, R02, R05, W00, E81

So, here's the scoop. 
  1. The First Tuesday of the Month Alma will post a challenge on her blog. The challenge will also be posted on our Splitcoaststampers forum and on our Facebook page
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design on Alma's blog using the InLinkz button. (The challenge button will be posted on the right hand column of her blog so you don't have to search around)
  3. The Challenge will be a month-long challenge and you can play as many times as you like during that month.
  4. Cards and projects must have at least one Cat's Pajamas Stamp or CutUps die in the project.
  5. On the First Monday of the Month a winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and crowned Swanky Stamper. 
  6. The Swanky Stamper will not only be acknowledged as the Swankiest Stamper for that month, but will also receive some of the stamps from our next release and get to play along with us at our Pajamas Party and Blog Hop. AND... They'll even get a special spot in the Gallery highlighting the project that won them the gig AND as snazzy badge to display on their blog.
