TCP Sneaky Peak Day 3 {all is bright}

Sneaky Peek with the Cat's Pajamas is well under way. I'm so glad you stopped by today. There is a sweet Bun in the line up and you have already got a peek at him (he's come to life in the graphic below!). The stamp set is called All is Bright and I had some fun creating a pop up card for the first time. 
First is the outside. I used the gorgeous new Double Snowflake cut up. This die set includes 2 stunning flakes. I cut mine from silver glimmer paper. I selectively stamped part of the sentiment from All is Bright onto a layered up Fancy  Flip Frames and Fancy Flip  cut ups. 

The best part of this card is on the inside. Alma has created the coolest interactive die that is super easy to use. It's called Basic Pop Up.  Be sure to wat
ch the video on the TCP Blog to see how this die works. It might not look like much......but it sure packs a BIG PUNCH and gives you more that 1 option when creating pop up cards. I used two of the "ledges" to show off my Bun. 

I finished off the sentiment and used the Fancy Flip Frame again along with some smaller sparkly snowflakes cut with the  Snowflake Paper Lace cut up. This is one of my favorite TCP Cut ups! 

I thought I'd give you a side look at the pop out ledges I used for my card. You simply adhere your images to the front of the ledge.

TCP Sneaky Peek Day 2 and Catered Crop Finale

Thanks for coming back today for more TCP Sneaky Peek fun! Today I am combining my peek with the final Catered Crop challenge. If you didn't see the announcement then be sure to head over to Linda's blog for all the sad, but exciting details. Retirement has been good for her and it's time to let the Catered Crop Recipe Swap go. That's the sad part, but I'm soooo happy for Linda and all the new adventures she has been enjoying. 

My TCP Sneak Peek today was the perfect ending to my time with the Catered Crop.It always felt like home over there. The stamp set is  called Home for All Seasons. I created a fun little row of holiday houses. I used the matching new Cut Up dies, too. I loooove the embossed details included with one pass through. 

I added a sentiment to the label die from Fancy Flip Frames. I punched a hole and tied it on with some silver twine to create a  sweet little tag. In the back ground you'll see I used the Dots Cut ups to try to give a feel of snow.

It's time for the next awesome Cat's Pajamas release sneaky peeks. We have a whole week to show you what Alma has up her sleeve. LOTS of great things! You won't want to miss!

Up first is a stamp set called Official Grinch. It's full of super punny sentiments. I created a fun holiday Thank-you card. 

I pieced up the sweater and added the circle die from the Framed Up 2 cut ups to accent the sentiment. Here's a closer look.

Tracey's 25 Days Of Holiday Tags Blog Hop

Super excited to be joining Tracey's 25 days of Christmas Tags blog Hop. It's a day full of Reverse Confetti inspiration. Come check it out. 

I started with the Tag Me, Too confetti cut die and then added some of the fun Triple Chevies. I love those. I glittered up some of the new Let it Snow flakes, too. 

The sentiment is from the new, just released Seasonal Sentiments. I finished it off with some ribbon and twine and the teeny jingle bells from the Pretty Pink Posh store.

Sweet Sunday Sketchno.245 {cozy winter wishes}

 So happy to be here with you today and with another fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch. This one is simple and is open to many intretations. I can't wait to see what you all do with it. 

Here is my take on the sketch. I used some new LID stamps to make a festive wintery wonderland. The Echo Park papers were my inspiration for my color combo. 

The stamp set is Cozy Winter Wishes and I stamped the snowflakes and sentiment (gave it a bit of a wave for some movement) were stamped onto a Stitched Mats-rounded Rectangle die. I used the Pinking Edge Sentiment Flags for my little tabs and decided to finish it off with a sweet twine bow and mini jingle bells. 

Check out the sketch. 

Come Play along: simply make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of Karen's post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time).

Curtain Call-Pin Cushion Challenge

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!


photo source:

We have a new sponsor, STAMPlorations, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Pin Cushion!  A randomly selected participant in the Pin Cushion challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to use at  STAMPlorations, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I was inspired by the colors and patterns in the photo this week. I pulled out my Reverse Confetti stamps and dies and created this thank-you card. I stamped So Many Stars in the background and carried on the star theme with the star pattern paper cut with the Triple Chevies confetti cuts. 

I added more chevrons to the Tag Me tag and the Round About sentiment cut with a Circles 'n Scallops die.  This card makes me smile and I can't wait to find a reason to give it to some special. 

Stop by the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Pin Cushion for the challenge details and to play along with us!

Here's another look at the RC products I used today.
