The Cat's Pajamas August Release and Blog Hop

It is release day at the The Cat's Pajamas! Two 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 from Christine's blog you are right on track.

I used the new Birthday Cake die to create a multi-layered cake. Using images from the new It's All About the Cake set I stamped the candles  using green parakeet and summer sunrise ink onto the white base. The cake layers were stamped using hawaiian shores and hibiscus burst inks. The "icing" was cut from hibiscus burst cardstock and then went over with a clear Sakura Gelly Roll pen. To prepare the background, I used the new Balloon Frame to create a cutout from white linen cardstock and then backed with patterned paper. After stamping the sentiment from the Critter Camp set the assembled cake was attached using foam tape. A patterned paper border strip at the bottom of the card base along with a few enamel dots provided more festive color.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and dies, Doodlebug dp, PTI cs, Doodlebug enamel dots, Sakura Gelly Roll pen, PTI and Simon Says ink

Now hop on over to the oh so talented Michele's blog.
