{The Cat's Pajamas Sneak Peek} Nature's Hello and Simple Blooms

It's day three of the TCP Sneak Peeks and we have a "two-fer" today.That's right, we are revealing two sets!

First up is Nature's Hello which features P.J. I started out by stamping the image in the lower right corner of the main panel, then I used a Spellbinders Nestie to cut a circle on the main panel which also eliminated part of the flower in the image. I stamped the sentiment twice bending it so it would stamp along the curve of the circle cutout. The flower on the image was stamped separately and fussy cut after coloring it with Copic markers. Patterned paper from the Simple Stories DIY Boutique pad was slipped underneath the circle cut out and I popped up the flower P.J. is holding with dimensional dots. I cut another flower using two pieces from the also new Petal Posies CutUps anchored with an enamel dot.  

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and dies, Simple Stories dp, Bazzill and PTI cs, Doodlebug enamel dot, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Memento and Simons Says inks, Copic Markers

Next is the Simple Blooms set which I have to say is just gorgeous. I predict I will be using this set a lot. I worked with the Cutables for this set using my Silhouette to cut the matching bloom. Rather than using the cutout I used the reverse of it placing one of the dies from the Framed Up 2 CutUps turned on its side to cut it out. I stamped the image onto patterned paper with Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with Black Diamond embossing powder.

After stamping the sentiment, I slipped the stamped piece underneath matching it to the open space. All the patterned paper came from the Amy Tangerine Plus One pad. Silver thread, a button and several sequins finished it up.
