The Cat's Pajamas New September Release Blog Hop

It is release day for The Cat's Pajamas! Three new stamp sets, four new die sets and two new Cutables are now available in The Cat's Pajamas shop. We are celebrating the release with a blog hop. If you arrived here from our newest kitty Michele's blog you are right on track. If not start at the beginning at Julie's blog. 

I couldn't resist using another image from the Christmas Cookies set. This time around though I wanted a more masculine look. We have several "bachelors" on our Christmas card list and I always seem to struggle finding one for them when I sit down to address and mail. The image was stamped in black and them cut out with the matching Yes Dear die.  For the card base I used the Big Scallop CutUps to cut the bottom of the card front, added a tiny strip of patterned paper and stamped the sentiment from the Big Holiday Words set using schoolhouse red ink. I attached the deer with foam tape to a circle cut from another patterned paper and then added a small strip of the same paper on the inside of the card.

And for my second project I used another of the new Cutables, the Ginger Bread House Treat Box to create a fun Christmas goody package.

I cut the box out from kraft card stock and sponged all the edges with white ink. The box was easy to assemble and then the real fun began with decorating it with the various pieces. I glittered all the "candy" pieces and the ends of the icicles and then attached all the pieces. There are a variety of ways to decorate this so there is really no wrong way. The "chimneys" at the top act as the closure. Here are a few more views:
