Sneaky Peek Week: Day 1 "Strange and Wonderful" and TCPTUES 268

Hi all! Today marks the beginning of SNEAKY PEEK WEEK and I hope you will be checking in this week with us to see the fab EIGHT new stamp sets, 3 die sets and 2 new Cutable files! The proceeds from our Cutables will be going to support Julie Masse's adoption process for a baby girl from China! The Cutables work with a Silhouette, or if you don't have one there are print and and hand cut versions for those of us less technologically advanced (i.e. me) ;)

You can be In It To Win It! Be sure to stop by the TCP member company forum on Splitcoaststampers In It to Win It thread. Each day of Sneaky Peek Week, one lucky commenter will win one of the new stamp sets!
Today is also TCP TUESDAY! Kelli is our Hostess with the Mostess this week, and she is inspiring me to get out of my blues/greens/browns comfort zone with this color challenge!
Here's the palette:

And we are Peeking this darling set called "Strange and Wonderful" today! Such a fun set!
I am also Peeking the Butterflies CutUps today! There are two dies in this set, the smaller of the two creates even tinier butterflies with the negatives from it's wings! So fun! Check it.
I used the Diamond Fold Card technique shown here on Splitcoaststampers for the top of my card. Then, I cut one of the flaps off and created a kraft mat with white card stock card for the bottom and attached it to the other flap.

I made my card a wee bit bigger than the tutorial shows, but it ended up being an odd size, so I made a custom envelope following the directions here on ScorPal's website. 

Oh, and you might just see a hint of another Peek that's coming later this week behind the sentiment there, but ya didn't hear that from me. ;)
That's all for me today! Be sure and stop by the other Cat Pack blogs for their takes on the challenge and this set! :) 

And, don't forget to join us for our Pajama Party! :)
