The Cat's Pajamas July Release and Blog Hop

It is release day at the The Cat's Pajamas! Three new stamps and four new dies are now available in The Cat's Pajamas shop. We are celebrating the release with a blog hop. If you arrived here from Michele's blog then you are right on track. Otherwise start at the beginning on Wendy's blog.

I stamped the image from the new Oh Buoy set onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out. To prepare the image panel, I used a die from the Holiday Window Duo CutUps to cut from white cardstock, then sponged some clouds onto the top portion of it using a stencil and tumbled glass distress ink. I used the new Rollings Hills die to cut two pieces from green parakeet cardstock and added to the bottom portion of the image panel. The colored image as well as two arrows cut from kraft cardstock using the new Arrows CutUps were attached using foam tape. The background was created with a patterned paper and white cardstock cut with the new Liners CutUps. The sentiment from the new One Liners set was stamped with kraft ink.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and dies, PTI dp, Neenah, PTI and RC cs, Ranger and MFT ink, Copic Markers
Copics: W00, E81, B40, E41, E42, E44, R20

My second card is a clean and simple one. I used the new Liners CutUps once again although I cut only the straight edges eliminating the heart or star icon. The liner strip was cut from patterned paper. I stamped the image from the Watercolor Basics set with daffodil delight ink then stamped the flower image from the new Critter Camp set in black and the sentiment from the Simply Said set onto the liner strip. The panel was attached to a soft stone card base using a layer of craft foam. A trio of enamel dots provided the finishing touch.

  1. Cute and pretty cards. I like the arrows on the first and the polka dot strip on the second.

  2. What great ideas for the cards. I love the liners without the heart or star card. It's terrific when you find new ways to use the product
