TCP Sneaky Peek Week day #6 "Tree-mendous"

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 "Tree-mendous." This cute bear is having a bit of a hard time stuffing that big tree into his igloo, wouldn't ya say? Too funny! I made a little canvas, this could be hung on the wall, or set on a shelf. I didn't paint the canvas, just used paper and ribbon to decorate it:)  

I used the cute "Treemendous" set and the "Holiday Topper" CutUps again! I really like that set of CutUps, think I may have used them on almost every project for this release! I also used two of my other TCP CutUps "Snowflake Lace Paper" and "Snowflake." They blend really well with the Snowflake 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 found a cute Christmas Tree ribbon in my stash, perfect color, and it sure made a cute accent to wrap the edge of the canvas in this. :)

I sure hope you enjoyed this Peek! Please check back tomorrow for another one. 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
