TCP Sneaky Peek Week! Day 1: "Commemorating You"


Hi there! I am super excited to share my first card for The Cat's Pajamas "Sneaky Peek Week" with ya! As January's "Swanky Stamper" I won the entire release for free and I get to play along this whole week! :) I was so excited, I made a card with each of the seven new sets to share with you! I also got all the new CutUps; and used them as well. On this card, I used this "window" CutUp, and the stamp set "Commemorating You." This CutUp is SO cool, and it also cuts out little shapes inside the windows. There's a tiny cat, a flowerpot, and a couple vases, so versatile! I was trying to make a man card. The border piece along the bottom is a new CutUp, too. I thought it reminded me of chef's hats, and since there's a tiny chef on here, I used it for that. But it could also be hearts or I'm thinking you could even roll a strip to make a flower. Can't wait to give that a try! This set has stamps that are meant to coordinate with the Stamp Trio CutUp, bummer I don't have that one, I could have made some fun stamped stamps! ;) May need that one for my collection now that I have these stamps to go with it. I started out by die cutting the window, and then I brayed ink on my woodgrain embossing folder, and dry embossed. I then laid the window cut woodgrain piece on the blue piece so I could figure out where to stamp. There's lots of little words in this set, and you can make so many different sentiments! I made two different ones for this card. I stamped the chef and punched him out. There are 4 different little chef silhouettes in the set. SO cute!! 

Well, I hope you like my card! Check out the TCP blog to see what the Cat Pack came up with for this cute set! See you tomorrow with another card, as I mentioned last week, you might just get sick of me this week. ;)

hugs, Noelle
