Sneaky Peek Week! Day 3: "Go! Fight! Win!" (aka Broncos Bun)

Hi all, well I know I haven't been around much lately, but I'm about to fix that in a "Meowy" BIG way! It's Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas! Yea! We have SEVEN fab new sets to show you this week and three awesome new CutUps. You are going to LOVE this release! So many fun winter sets for holiday projects, and some other cute surprises, too. :) Today we are peeking "Go! Fight! Win!" for your perusal.

I also used this new CutUp die, "Dots." I will be using this a lot FOR SURE! Such a fun plate. :) 

I got these stamps in the mail while I was out of town, but I knew Football Bun was in the package (ok, lets just call him Broncos Bun, because we all KNOW there aren't any other good NFL teams, don't we??) ;) Anyhow, we got home from said road trip, and my son's 13th birthday was 48 hours later. He is a MAJOR Broncos fan, so I knew without a doubt what my first card would be! :) This card is a bit smaller than A2, it measures 4" x 5 1/4." 
I also used the Big Scallop CutUp on the top of the card. I made the front panel first and then cut a piece that was the same width but longer. I scored it at the height of the front panel, then beyond the score, I cut off with the Big Scallop. Then, I just adhered the back of the Big Scallop to the front of my card panel, for a fun card. This is a great technique to use for card making when you have a strip of cardstock that is the width you want, but not long enough. 

I knew I wanted there to be a layer of separation between Broncos Bun and the card, so I created a little landscape circle. I punched a circle of light blue card stock. Then I die cut a strip of Grass and a strip of Clouds. Then, I used the punch on both those die cut strips so the edges would match perfectly. Adhere it all together and you have a landscape for your character to sit on. Or, in this case, run on. 

Of course, I used Broncos colors, and added some green for impact. On the top of the card there is a strip of glitter tape (another goody from my package from Rebecca) and a wood banner that I stamped the sentiment on. A few candy dots are the only other embellies needed. 

Here are some details you need to know:
1. All the new stamps and dies will be released on Tuesday, October 29.
2. If you're IN IT TO WIN IT, visit the TCP Forum at Splitcoastampers to comment and chat on the IN IT TO WIN IT thread every day for an opportunity to score some new TCP goodies.
3. Save the date for the Pajama Party on Monday, October 28 from 8-10pm eastern time.

And that is all for me today! Hope you can pop by the other blogs of the Cat Pack!! Links are on the right there.

Hugs and Purrs, 
xo, Noelle
