TCP Sneaky Peek Week! Day 2: "Bloom"


Hi there! It's day 2 of Sneaky Peek Week for The Cat's Pajamas! That link takes you to Alma's blog where you can check out what pretties the Cat Pack have for you! I get to play this week because I was January's Swanky Stamper. :) As SS, I won all the stamps and CutUps from this new release, and I get to play all week! This set is called "Bloom," and I don't mind telling you when I saw this die that cuts the loopy flowers, I literally squealed! I have wanted a die like this for a long time, so cool that I actually WON this! Here's a closeup on Mr. Flower Bun.


He was Copic-colored, fussy-cut, Stickled, gemmed, and his nose was popped up. I backed him with some layered Nestabilities and the previously released TCP Grass CutUp, "puzzle-piecing" the layers together the way I like to do. Onto the fabulous flowers! 

They were cut out of 3 different colors of felt, and I used some pretty stickpins to hold the little felt corsage together. The piece with Mr. Flower Bun was stitched to some natural colored cross-stitch fabric, and the flowers were hot glued on. I then stamped the sentiment right onto the fabric:

This funky frame is from Target, and it's a bit less shiny in person. The final touch was a cluster of buttons to balance out the opposite corner from the flowers:


I hope you like my project! Go check out what the Cat Pack has to show you today! I'll be back tomorrow with another Peek!

xoxo, Noelle
