All The Mews That’s Fit To Print

TCPTUES277_Inspiration-Grap

Hi all! I having finally found a little time to stamp. And, with Nancy’s super fun Inspiration Collage to, well, inspire me, I created two cards AND a video to show you how I used the NEW Web Cutable.

First, this card.

ADEasel

This card uses Eat, Drink, and Be Scary. I used a web embossing folder to give the top of the card dimension. And, I used the Fancy Flip and the frames CutUps. Then, I added the Slime/Icicles to the inside of the card for even more color and texture. This card came together so fast, I had to make another.

ADmummyI used the NEW Web Cutables for the web and the spider and the Brains! stamp set with it’s FREE cutting files. Believe it or not, this card came together even faster than the last one. So, what was I going to do with all my free time? Well, make a video showing you how easy it is to use our Cutables. Check it out.

Easy, Right? There is still time to enter for this week’s Inspiration Challenge. Just post your card here using the InLinkz button.

TCP-Tuesday_276

Nancy here to remind you that there is still plenty of time to play in the current TCP Tuesday Color Challenge.  Link your projects on this post by Monday (10/13) at Midnight, EDT. Each project enters you for a chance to win some Cat Cash up to $15.

Here are a couple of the entries that caught my eye so far:

Joyce used the new Survivor set for an entry in the Hope You Can Cling To card drive benefiting those affected by breast cancer at Splitcoaststampers.

And Tricia used the Nature’s Hello set to combine our color challenge  with yet another challenge from the Hope You Can Cling To card drive.

Remember, you don’t have to use a Cat’s Pajamas image to win the challenge (but we love it when you do) and you can combine challenges just as these entries illustrate.

SSOct2014

Those of you who know me, know I love color. Usually the brighter and louder the better. But, this card by Tricia Traxler done so elegantly in just two colors has me reconsidering. Her soft, sophisticated coloring of the flowers from the Simple Blooms set is just beautiful and the dark blue sentiment just pops. Just lovely.

There were lots of pretties this month that I think really deserve a shout out.

TravelinManHow about this stunner by Brenda Nakandakari using “Travelin’ Man” and the Cloud Border and Toppers CutUps? So pretty with all the different patterns and textures.

YvonneBYvonne Basher creates a truly dreamy card using Wish.

P9250301_1Lynn Wallan-Smith has me head over heels that uses Take Off and the Toppers CutUps.

Tricia wins a selection of a future release and she did it just by playing TCP Tuesday. You could win too. All you have to do is play

Hop_22-1

YAY! It’s Release Day AND TCP Tuesday. A double whammy! I hope you were able to join us during Sneaky Peek Week. There were so many great cards and projects by The Cat Pack, that I know that I’m going to have to go through them all again and again.

But, today is all about TCP Tuesday. Julie is our Hostess with Mostess and she is challenging YOU to a color challenge.

TCP-Tuesday_276She is challenging you to use Light Gray, Rust and Dark Blue in your projects. The Cat Pack and Swanky Stampers want in on the challenge, so we are doing a Blog Hop, featuring our latest release! So, if you came from Kelli’s Blog, you are in the right place. If not, then go back to the very beginning at Julie’s Blog. You’ll be glad you did.

BooYall2For my card, I used our Fancy Flip CutUps to create this flip card, as well as The Birds CutUps. The stamps are from the Boo Y’all stamp set. I’ve always loved the movie “The Birds” by Alfred Hitchcock. Bodega Bay, where “The Birds” was filmed is just a hop, skip and jump away from my mother’s house, so when I go visit I always keep my eyes peeled. One of the most frightening things in that movie is the part where the birds just  lie in wait on jungle gyms and telephone wires. I shiver just thinking about it.

BooYall

But, for my card, I didn’t want as much fright, so I did the inside of the card in a much more friendly way. The cloak is a cross between grey and blue. The blue isn’t quite dark enough, but close. Okay, it’s not close, but I think that the paper works. I loved placing the birds here and there.

Now, it’s your turn. What can you do with those colors?

Here are the Details on how you can join in on the fun:

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted here on this blog as well as on our Splitcoaststampers forum and our Facebook 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 TCPTUES276. Only the entries uploaded to the Inlinkz button will be considered for Swanky Stamper at the end of the month.

SneakyPeakPeeks_07

It’s Day #7 of Sneaky Peek Week and the FINAL Day of Sneaky Peeks. I hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing The Cat Pack and Swanky Stampers strut their stuff. I know that I’ve enjoyed looking at all their wonderful cards and projects. I want to especially thank our Swanky Stampers, Brenda Nakandakari and Debbie Owens for playing along with us this week. I am so honored to see the beautiful cards that they created.

Today, the set we are Sneaky Peeking is called “Joy to the World” and features my very favorite penguins, Larry, Daryl and their other brother Darrell. And they are joyfully singing that the Holiday Season is almost upon us.

This set, and all the stamp sets, CutUps Dies and Cutables will be available on September 30.

F192001746

The best thing about Lori Tecler‘s card is….well everything. She stamped out one of the sentiments in black on a red banner and stamped and beautifully colored the penguins. Then, she added a little bit of fluff to the top of the middle Penguin’s hat. It’s a very simple card. Simply beautiful.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABrenda Nakandakari  uses the Fancy Flip CutUps to create the base for this card and used the label from the Fancy Flip Frames to make the center of the card a shaker. Just stunning.

tcpSept14-joy to the world-1Lisa Henke also used the Fancy Flip CutUps but just for the mats of the card. Then, sprinkled on a couple of snowflakes from the Snowflake Lace Paper CutUps. The penguins stand on Icing CutUps and add a bit of whimsy to this pretty card.

Noelle McAdams creates cheery card using our Twisted Card Cutables and our FREE Cutting File for this set. It’s so pretty closed.P1220424-imp

And super cute open. What is really great is that she uses different color inks on the sentiment for a wonderful look. And the penguins are colored AND paper pieced. Just lovely.

It’s Day #6 of Sneaky Peek Week and hold onto your hats! Yes, we’ve got the Holiday Spirit with this great Holiday sentiment set.

Sometimes, it’s hard to get into the Holiday Spirit, but not so with this set. This set is pure graphic goodness that you can mix and match with any of our CutUps Dies or any of that great Holiday paper you’ve been hoarding. I don’t know about you, but during the Holidays I am short on time. So, these big sentiments are easy to make into fast and fabulous cards.

This set, and all the stamp sets, CutUps Dies and Cutables will be available on September 30.

TCP-Sparkly-Birds-CO-0914

Christine Okken has the right idea. She found some great Holiday paper, embellished with The Birds CutUps and a sentiment from the Big, Fat Holiday Sentiment set and instant card. Fast and easy! And, truly beautiful.

IMG_3885

Cheers to Kelli Hull for this festive idea. I can picture giving a whole set of these as Hostess gifts. After all, one needs glasses for all the wine and cider that all the rest of the guests bring. Lucky for us, Kelli is giving a tutorial on her blog on how she created this.

P1220437-imp

Noelle McAdams creates this card that reminds me of shopping for Christmas trees. She used our Chevron Cutables for the dotted paper and topped it with  one of the sayings placed it on a label cut from our Fancy Flip CutUps.

tcp-sssc-merry little

Lisa Henke has the spirit! What a sweet card. The sentiment is stamped and layered onto the scalloped squares from the Fancy Flip and Fancy Flip Frames CutUps. (I dare you to say that 5 times fast) and then a simple, but darling embellishment band from the Slime/Icicles CutUps, a button, snowflakes and a bit of ribbon.

It’s Day #5 of Sneaky Peek Week and I hope you are loving the Peeks at the New sets that The Cat Pack is bringing to you.

The set we are debuting is called “Brains!” Before there were Zombies, there were Mummies, and I’m pretty sure that they had a taste for brains, as well. This funny mummy was designed by the very same illustrator that draws the Long-Eared Bunny, and I think he’s just as sweet.

This set, and all the stamp sets, CutUps Dies and Cutables will be available on September 30.

Brains-small

Julie Masse is kicking today’s peek off with this great set! A little something to help you unwind and a spooky easel card made with our Fancy Flip CutUps. The great thing about the Fancy Flip CutUps is that not only can you use it to make Flip Cards, but also, two different types of Easel Cards.

NancyTCP Brains! Gift Set 2

Nancy Thomas takes this stamp set and the Eat, Drink & Be Scary stamp set, and creates the MOST wonderful cookie decorating kit. Nancy TCP Scary PopUp Candy 3

Check out this super fun spatula holder that she created from the Pop Up Candy Treat Holder. The gal has got skills.

Brains1And speaking of skills, Brenda Nakandakari has got loads and loads. She creates this scary scene using the Slime/Icicles CutUps and the label die from the Fancy Flip CutUps. And, how darling are the bats that she made from ribbon? Very!

It’s Day #4 of Sneaky Peek Week and hump day in Sneaky Peek Week terms. Where did all the time go?

Vintage Halloween is the set that we are Sneaky Peeking today. And, like all of our past Vintage sets, this one was designed to go along with our Framed Up set of CutUps. I love doing these Vintage sets because they really set a mood. They are great stamped in color or just in classic black. Try them embossed with detail embossing powder for that extra shine.

This set, and all the stamp sets, CutUps Dies and Cutables will be available on September 30.

-2 Wendy McGaffey, has the idea! This stamp set is CLASSIC in gold stamped on black for that sparkley, but spooky look.

Nancy Thomas TCP Vintage HalloweenNancy Thomas takes this stamp set in a decidedly modern direction and it’s simple stunning stamped in black on kraft. She adds “31” from our Numbers CutUps for a pop of color.

Debbie Owens uses the bats, cobwebs, and sentiments stamped on the Bitty Banners to add a bit of whimsy to her card.

Vintage-H-small Julie Masse made my heart thud a bit louder when I saw this awesome card. She stamps up the image on patterned paper and used the Stencil Sheets with the Dots CutUps for the background. LOVE how she stamped the bats on top of the dots.
