Happy 6th Birthday {TCP Tuesday}

Welcome to the the first TCP Tuesday challenge of April. The Cat's Pajamas is in the process of making some wholesale changes to TCP Tuesday which we will debut in May. In the meantime two changes are effective immediately. First of all, we will rotate challenges on a two week basis so you will have more time to complete your projects. Secondly, we have changed our incentive to $10 Cat Cash for the winner but if the winner uses a TCP stamp or die, then the prize is $15 Cat Cash.

I am your hostess with a What's Your Number? challenge. Use a number on your project; this can be a stamp, die-cut or even with numbers on your patterned papers.

I combined several of the newest TCP products to create a 6th birthday card. I started out by creating a shaker using the Framed CutUps 2, using Doodlebug sequins for the shake-ables and placing a number on the background piece cut with the new Numbers plate. I layered the shaker onto a piece cut with the Heart Rosette CutUps. I stamped the sentiment from the Your Number is Up set at the top directly onto the background panel alternating with Stampin' Up Gumball Green and Strawberry Slush inks. I also stamped the "th" onto a small circle cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities, matting it onto a flower cut with the Flower Button CutUps and then placing it on the shaker frame. The birthday sentiment was stamped onto a flag banner cut with the Easy Rosette CutUps.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and CutUps, American Crafts dp, Bazzill and PTI cs, Doodlebug Sequins, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Stampin' Up inks
