Sneaky Peek Week: Day 1 "Lean On Me" (TCPTUES261)

Hi there all you pretty kitties, are you ready for some Release week FUN?? Today is TCP Tuesday, as well, and the theme is "Encourage A Friend." Our Hostess with the Mostess Julie is giving you BONUS points if you actually mail or give the card to someone who needs encouragement. Here's all the TCPTUES deets:

  1. Each Tuesday a new challenge will be posted here on this blog as well as on our Splitcoaststampers forum and ourFacebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design using the InLinkz button below*. If you want to display your pretties on Splitcoaststampers use keyword TCPTUES261. Only the entries uploaded to the Inlinkz button will be considered for Swanky Stamper at the end of the month.
  3. You must have your project posted by Monday, 12 midnight EST to be eligible to win the week’s Cat Cash.
  4. Cards and projects must have at least one Cat’s Pajamas Stamp or CutUps die in the project.
  5. On the following TCP Tuesday, the week’s winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10.00.
  6. At the end of the month, The Swanky Stamper will be selected from all the weekly entries. The Swanky Stamper will receive some of the stamps from our next release and get to play along with us at our Pajamas Party and Blog Hop. AND… They’ll even get a special spot in the Gallery highlighting the project that won them the gig and a snazzy badge to display on their blog.
  7. The Swanky Stamper will be announced the First Monday of the month on Splitcoaststampers, Facebook page, and our TCP Blog

Of course it's also Sneaky Peek Week, and today we are peeking a GREAT set called "Lean On Me." All the new sets will be available for purchase at midnight EST next Tuesday morning the 25th!

Here's my card, I also used one of our new CutUps sets "Framed Up 2" it's got a fun flag die that can make a banner of any length! 

I did some reverse stamping on this card, how you do this is to get a "blank" stamp (like a large shadow stamp) or if you have a solid piece of stamping rubber/acrylic/photopolymer, you could easily make your own blank stamp. Anyhow, just stamp your image right onto the blank stamp,, and then stamp the blank stamp down and you get a mirror image of your original image. Pretty neat, huh? 

I and some fun layering up the sentiment at the top. There are so many cool words with this set, you can customize your own sentiment, which I LOVE. :)

That's it for me today, but I will be back several times this week with more Peeks!
