TCP Sneaky Peek Week day #3 "Soar"

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! Happy Thanksgiving! 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. This is my first Sneaky Peek this week, this set is called "Soar." My hubby is an aerospace engineer, and as such we love ALL THINGS outer space related 'round these parts! For a long time, both Ian and Collin had outer space themed rooms, but you may remember, we recently redecorated Ian's room. Anyway, I did a little happy dance when I saw these super cute stamps and dies. You could use this as a Christmas set if you wanted, there is the sentiment "meet me at the mistletoe" on here, but I personally think this will be great for inspirational cards and birthday cards, love love LOVE this! I also used two new CutUps on this, the "Star Rosette," and the "Holiday Topper." 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 used some cute papers that I hadn't used much of Technologic by Kaisercraft. There were so many cute ones in the pad, I had a hard time choosing! 

Colored Astro Bun with Copics and cut him out. I "filled" in the die cut star CutUp on the bottom, by cutting some more stars out of the scrap I had left from cutting the rosette, and using those inside the negative part of the die cut. 

I hope you like my card! 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! There will be a Black Friday surprise tomorrow regarding this release, and I'll have all the info here for you tomorrow, early tomorrow, so you can get a jump on that special surprise if you choose! :) Hope you eat too much turkey and pumpkin pie today! 

Biggest hugs, Noelle
