This set is part of the new Cat's Pajama release which is going to be available on June 16. To keep you busy while you wait hop over to Miss Meowy's (Alma, our fearless leaser) blog Eat, Play, Stamp to see what the Cat Pack (her fabulous design team) has created with the new stamps and dies. Also stop over at Splitcoast Stampers TCP Forum and leave a comment on the In It To Win It chats for a chance to win a stamp set.
As soon as I saw these flowers I thought that they could be used to make a gift card set. I usually don't make CAS (clean and simple) cards but I thought these stamps would make a statement on their own. Oddly, it probably too me as much time to figure out the card even though there isn't that much to think out.
The photo's lighting isn't the best, the paper and the ink is Stampin' Up Crisp Cantaloupe so imagine that the actual cards are a little pinker looking.
Once you know what you are going to do these cards are really fast to make so if you need a quick gift you can make these in short time. Besides the stamping on the top layer I've used a retired Stampin' Up corner punch which gives the card a little something extra, it's one of my favorite embellishments.
This cards would look good in any color, so if you are making them as a gift if you know the recipient's favorite color that would make the gift that much sweeter. To make a really special gift wrap them up in a silk scarf and tie a pretty bow around them. OR, if your friends are of a different persuasion put them in a little sack and tie them around the neck of a bottle of wine - that would be the ultimate hostess gift for my friends.
I am having the greatest time playing along with the Cat Pack. I can't thank Alma enough for this opportunity. I hope you're enjoying the sneaks and that you'll be back again tomorrow.
There will be peeks up to and including Monday when the stamps are available. On Tuesday there will be a follow up blog hop. That's going to be so much fun so don't miss any of the fun, stop by the Cat's Pajamas everyday for the latest news and to see the peek of the day.
