The Cat's Pajamas February Release Blog Hop and TCP Tuesday Reminder

It is release day for The Cat's Pajamas! Three new stamps and three new die sets are now available in The Cat's Pajamas shop. We are celebrating the release with a blog hop and I am up first.

We are also a little over half way for TCP Tuesday #343 which is to feature an animal on your creation.

For once I am ahead of a holiday with these Easter goody bags. I created the tag bases using a combination of cardstock cut with a die from the Beaches CutUps and pattern paper cut with the Holiday Tag Duo. I stamped images from the new Family Forever set onto the white cardstock pieces and colored with Copic Markers. The image portion was attached to the patterned paper tag using foam tape and I added an enamel dot to each one. I also used the Eggs in a Basket die to create a basket tag with eggs decorating two of them with a cardstock bow using a die from the Presents set. For the other two I added a strip of double sided tape to the back and applied some scrunched up paper "grass" that I included inside the bags. I attached the tags to the gift bags using double strands of ribbon.

Here are the individual tags:
