TCP Sneaky Peeks Day One

TCP - Strange and Wonderful
It's here!  Sneaky Peeks at the Cat's Pajamas new release. It's so exciting to be able to show you the newest stamps and dies that will be for sale in just a few more days.  I know that every TCP lover is sitting on the edge of their chair waiting to get their hands on them.  It's just about a week away, Monday,June 16  is release day and in the meantime you will be treated to peeks everyday.  Check out our fearless leader Miss Meowy's blog for all the info you need and links to all the Cat Pack's blogs.  

The Penguins are a favorite character among Cat fans.  They often appear in threes so I'm not sure if this is Larry, Larry or Darryl but he sure is cute surrounded by all those flowers.  If you're like me you've had trouble getting a good impression of the penguins.  Well, I discovered that when I put a foam pad under my paper I got a perfect impression.  That one little step made a major difference in the quality of my stamped images.  I hope that tip helps you too.  If you still have problem spots they should be small enough for a touch up with a blender pen.  

Today's also the start of a new challenge at the Cat's Pajamas.  The new challenge TCPTUES268 is a color challenge "Kraft, Rose and Vanilla".  Now that's a combination that I adore so it was easy to pull this card together and I'm sure you'll have no problem getting a card or project put together, hey you've got two weeks, so join the fun and maybe you'll win some cat cash.

Besides the new stamp set I've used the new "Petal Posies" Cut Up on this card.  It's yummy isn't it.  I've also used some of my all time favorite TCP products which you will find on lots of my cards.  I love "Divine Twine" and ever since the Cat's Pajamas started carrying it I've been addicted, it's on almost all of my cards.  I don't think I could live without it.  Then there's two of my favorite Cut Ups - the "Toppers" and the "Chevron" Cut Ups.  So much fun on one little card...

Here's the deets:
ink - My Favorite Things "Black Licorice" for image and "Kraft" for sentiment; Memento "Angel Pink" for sponging on edges
paper - Copics X-press blending card stock;  My Favorite Things "Kraft", "Insulation Pink" and  "Lemon Drop" card stock; Bazzill "Buttercream" card stock; My Mind's Eye Lost and Found "Market Street" dsp pad
miscellaneous - copics; the Cat's Pajamas dies "Petal Posies",   "Toppers" and "Chevron" Cut Ups; Pink Divine Twine; Spellbinder's Oval dies; sun charm; Close To My Heart Bitty Sparkles
