BLACK SATURDAY SPECIAL! TCP Sneaky Peek Week day #5 "Merry Everything"

The Cat's Pajamas is now 10 years old! Alma started making rubber stamps at her dining room table, hand cutting rubber and cushion and attaching them to wood blocks to sell to the local stamp stores where she was teaching.

So much has happened to stamping in 10 years. But our love of stamping is still going strong. So this release, we are excited to celebrate the way we started. With rubber stamps. Not just any rubber stamps. Cling Stamp sets for easy storage and positioning. Perfect for those who love rubber, but also love the convenience and ease of clear. Limited Edition because these stamps are extra special. Lovingly assembled at Alma's dining room table. Just like she did 10 years ago. So snap them up, because only a small number will be made. Her table is only so big.

Hi all! I am so excited to play along with the Cat Pack at The Cat's Pajamas this week! I am able to do this because I was chosen as The Swanky Stamper in July for this card. So I get the whole new release for free, and get to share with you all the goodies I'm making with these fun new things this week. The Sneaky Peek today is called "Merry Everything." 

... and I suppose you may be wondering what the BIG Black Friday/Saturday surprise is? Hmmm? Well here you go! 

******It's our 10th Anniversary and we've decided to give a little something back this year. So on Black Friday and Saturday you can purchase all our NEW Limited Edition stamp sets and dies EARLY. Yup, that's before the official release. AND we'll give you FREE shipping in the US and FREE International Shipping on all orders over $65. Happy Anniversary from us to you!*****

You can see I went very CAS on this card, just using the new "Holiday Topper" CutUps instead of a main stamped image, and then used the sentiment only from this cute set. I love the way it turned out, but the cream on cream sentiment was a bit tough to photograph. But don't you think these two Buns are super cute, too? 

Here's some more info on the CutUps: There are Five CutUps Dies in this release. Along with some "classics" that belong in every die collection, we are so excited to introduce our "Toppers" line. They are shapes that you can use the positive and negatives of to create borders and panels. They are open-ended so that you can create panels of any size using the toppers. You can place them individually or use them together. Endless possibilities!

I added a wee bit of Diamond Stickles for snow and heat embossed the sentiment with a clear embossing powder/Dazzling Diamonds glitter mix. Gave the card a bit of a nativity feel with a single large star, the negative part of the Star Topper CutUp. So, I used 3 of the 4 CutUps in this set. This is a simple card, and one that it would be easy to make several of for your Christmas cards. I hope you like it! :) Please check back tomorrow for another Peek. Please check out the Cat's Pajamas Thread on Splitcoaststampers to see what the Cat Pack made with these cute stamps and to check out the other Sneaky Peeks! 

big hugs, Noelle
