The Cat's Pajamas New Release Blog Hop and TCP Tuesday

It is release day for The Cat's Pajamas! All seven of the new stamp sets and three fun new Cutups dies are available now in The Cat's Pajamas shop.

Since it is release day that also means a blog hop. I hope you arrived here from Wendy's blog. Wendy is one of our newer Cat Pack members and I am sure she had something creative to show you. If not, head on over to Alma's blog to start at the beginning.

My card today is pulling double duty as it is also for the May TCP Tuesday challenge which is to design a card with clean lines, minimal elements, areas of white space and few or no embellishments.Less is more. Full details are on the Dancing in Pajamas blog as well as the link to add your project.

I inked up the Life's a Beach bunny again, allowing part of the image off the page. I used one of the new Small Sentiments stamped onto the arrow cut with the Talk to Me CutUps. I cut the top portion with the Big Scallop CutUps which remains a favorite die. The paper is from the Sweetwater by Bazzill Basics Lucy's Crab Shack pad. I love this sheet but have a bone to pick with Sweetwater as the most beautiful beaches in the world located on the Gulf Coast are under-represented. You will notice that I colored the beach East coast style. It's hard to explain "sugar white" beaches to someone who has never experienced them.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp and CutUps, Bazzill Basics dp, Doodlebug and PTI buttons, Copic Markers
Copics: Bunny-E40, E41, E42; Sand-E81, E84, E87; Drink-YR12, YR16, YR18; Umbrella-YG0000, YG21, YG01, W00, E81

That's it for me. I hope you have enjoyed all the previews, chatting and the shopping! To continue the blog hop, please pop on over to Noelle's blog I know she has something fabulous to show you.
