{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, four fabulous new Cutups dies and two new Cutables are available now in The Cat's Pajamas shop.

As TCP Tuesday hostess I am first up on the hop. For this rotation I have a color challenge for you.  See the full details at the end of this post and also on The Cat's Pajamas blog.

I cut the tag from kraft card stock using a free Cutables set and then stamped the image from the Melt My Ice set onto it. I "spot" colored it with Copic Markers and added a paper pieced scarf. I also stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Vermillion ink. After adding a ribbon/button/twine treatment to the top of the tag, I attached it to the background panel. I added a star cut with the  3x3 Stars CutUps and anchored with a button, another button and the year which came from the Handmade for You set. All the patterned paper came from the My Mind's Eye Sleigh Bells Ring pad.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps, CutUps and Cutables, My Mind's Eye dp, PTI cs and buttons, Hemptique Twine, May Arts ribbon, Copic Markers
Copics: C00, N1, N3, R22, R24
