Blog Hop & TCP Tuesday

It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s TCP Tuesday Challenge Day. And, today it’s even more special because it’s Release Day and the start of something NEW. But, first, the TCP Tuesday Challenge.

TCPTUES280_Color Challenge Graphic-1Today’s challenge is a Color Challenge. Nancy is the Hostess with the Mostess for this challenge and she wants you to use Kraft, Red, and Black in your card or project. If you’ve been hanging with us for the past week, you know that TODAY is Release Day. And, that means a Blog Hop. If you’ve come from Kelly‘s Blog then you are at the very last stop. If you haven’t, click on over to Nancy‘s for the start of the Hop.

ADTStepHere is my card. I used the NEW Triple Side Step Cutable for this card and added the houses from the Home For All Seasons stamp set and the Village CutUps. I wanted the house to look like gingerbread, so I stamped in white pigment ink and used white embossing powder. Then I added some White Enamel Accents to the roof line and anywhere I thought snow would be. For the tree line, I used the Holiday Toppers CutUps.

This card came together really fast, mostly because of the Triple Side Step Cutable. You can see what I mean in this video. Once the main pieces where cut, I just had fun decorating.

So, now I have some good news and some more good news.

First, the good news.

Starting today we will be having a month long Blog Hop. And, you can play along. Just use anything TCP and you’re golden. Then, upload your card or project to the inlinkz button on the right side of this blog. On December 26 we’ll announce the winner of a $50 gift voucher. Yup, a little sumpin’ sumpin’ for your Holidays.

Now, the other good news.
