Sneaky Peeks - Snow Kisses

Have you been waiting for some new Cat's Pajamas stamps?  Of course you have, well your wait is over, well, almost over.  In just one short week the new stamps will be released, in the meantime we've got sneaky peeks for you and there's chatting over on the Cat's Pajama's Forum on Splitcoast Stampers.  Come over and chat because every day starting Wednesday there's going to be a lucky winner of a stamp set picked from the posts from the previous day.

This release is special because The Cat's Pajamas is 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.

Today's peek is "Snow Kisses".  The ever popular penguin is first up.  I get such a kick out of the penguins, and this fellow is no exception.  I don't know why but I'm always expecting them to be in trouble but they really are just cute fun loving guys.  This time there's just one penguin, and he's bringing a big old snowflake to you and snow kisses to you.  Also new in this release is the snowflake border.   This die is really cool because it only cuts on the outside and you can line it up to make it any length you need.

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!

Here's the deets:
stamp - The Cat's Pajamas "Snow Kisses"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and "Teal Zeal"
paper - MFT "Kraft" and "Sno-Cone" card stock; the Robin's Nest "Winter Retreat Snowflake"
miscellaneous - SU yellow marker; MFT "Oval" die-namics; the Cat's Pajamas "Snowflake" border and "Buttons" CutUps; baker's twine; snowflake bling; snowflake charm; Viva glitter pen
