The Cat's Pajamas July Sneak Peeks

Welcome to the The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek Week! We have some fabulous new stamps and dies which will be released on July 25 in the TCP store. Each member of the design team will be taking turns sharing creations and today is my day. Be sure to stop by The Cat's Pajamas blog everyday to see who is on the schedule.

On a top folded card base I created a striped background by stamping an image from the Watercolor Basics set across the front five times using daffodil delight ink. Using the Misti, I stamped the two floral images from the new Big Blooms set in black ink and then again in Versamark. After clear embossing the flowers, I stamped the two stems using images from the Sketchy Flowers set and a sentiment from the Simply Stacked Sentiments set.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps, PTI cs, Versamark, Stampin Up and Simon Says ink

This card features the new What's Up Gnomies set and as you can see, I kept it very simple. I first stamped the gnome and then masked him in order to stamp the mushroom and fence images. After coloring with Copics, I cut the panel with a stitched die and attached to a kraft card base.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps, Neenah and Bazzill cs, Memento ink, Copic Markers

For my third card I used another image from the new Big Blooms set. After inking up the flower with berry burst ink,  I lightly misted with water and then stamped onto a water color card stock background and did the same with the stem and leaves images using lemon lime twist ink. I then added more water to the stamped image. After the panel was completely dry, I stamped the flower centers randomly using Versamark ink, smooshing the stamp down hard to enlarge, then white heat embossed them. The background was water colored with pool party ink. I then cut out the banner from white card stock using one of the dies from the new Ribbon Banners CutUps and stamped the sentiment from the also new Banner Day set using berry burst ink.
