Today is the final day of Sneaky Peek Week and I hope you’ve liked everything we’ve had to show you. Today we are wrapping up the week with a little peek of everything we’ve peeked so far. Today, it’s Designer’s Choice
Everything is available now. But, if you can wait until Jan 26, and want the entire release, or all the stamps, you can get them at a discount.
Julee Tilman creates a STUNNING background for this exercising pup. I think it’s so cute how she added the little “perspiration” on the puppies face and chest.
Finally, Brenda Nakandakari stamps up this cutie from the Sun, Please Stamp Set. This set has a hand drawn look and is perfect for coloring with colored markers or water colors
That’s it for now. The Cat Pack has more to show you, so I hope you check out each of the blogs below for a closer look and comment on each of them. You could win a $10 gift voucher. We’ll pick a winner each day this week from the comments on the blogs and post the winners here and on our Facebook page.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed the peeks at our November Collection with our daily mini- hops. I know that I’ve really enjoyed seeing what The Cat Pack have created with each of the items in our release. I love seeing an idea come to life. Ready for the final hop of the year?

For my card I used the Yeti to Party Bundle. I wanted to keep this one pretty simple, you’ll see why later on.
I took out my Misti and laid out the monsters from the Yeti to Party stamp set on a heavy piece of Neenah Solar White and flipped the lid over to get the stamps to stick.
I used Marvy Black Die Ink, because I knew that I wanted to color like Cristena Bagne did on her card and I knew the safest ink was the die ink
After the coloring, I took a white pen and added texture. I really love how this brightens up the monster. Then, I placed the dies over the images and taped them with washi tape to hold them in place when I ran them through the die cut machine.
Almost perfectly centered in the diecut. Easy peasy! Then, I cut circle from the corner of designer paper and stamped the “Yeti to Party” sentiment in the corner and added a wobbler to the back of the green monster.
But, what about all the rest of the monsters? Whelp! I used the SpiralPopup ( seen in the photo with the die cuts) to create a Party! A Virtual Party, if you will
After diecutting the SpiralPopup I placed a glue dot in the center and on the tab on the outside and closed the card. Then, I added the monsters to the popup. I stamped and colored an extra green monster to cover the end tab and stamped the sentiment on a little pennant.
I LOVE IT. I did a little video showing the wobble and the spiral when you open it up.

I hope you liked our Release Day Hop! And, don’t forget about our Sale. We’ve sold out of the Woof Stamp Set, and ordered more, so put in your order to lock in the price.
We are starting our Black Friday Sale EARLY! AND, it’s our biggest one yet. We are discontinuing a lot of our stamps and dies, so get them while you can.

YAY! It’s the official Release Day for our Winter in July Collection. If you’ve been patient, and want the entire collection at a discount, the Kitty Kat Pack is now available. If you just want the Poochie Pack, just the stamps at a discount, that’s available, too.
Before I go further, I would like to give a really big thanks to the ULTRA talented Leigh O’Brien. You KNOW I have ALWAYS been a fan of hers and I am honored that she was able to join us in this release. She has done some really fabulous cards, so check them out again, if you can. She rocks it out!
If you’ve come here from Cristena Bagne‘s blog you are in the right place. If you didn’t, then head back to the beginning of the hop, at Kerry Urbatch’s blog.
When Melissa Chipperfield first suggested the Peek-A-Boo Frames I immediately thought of an Advent Calendar. I thought it would be really great to have boxes that you could access using the little doors. As for the boxes….EVERYONE likes presents!
So, I went to the Dollar Tree and picked up 12 of their little wood drawers. I measured each of the boxes and drawers and cut paper to cover the front.
I glued the rows of the boxes together to form a tree, and then covered the openings with the paper squares. I didn’t glue the rows together so it would be easier to pack and to move it into different configurations. I kinda like the boxes askew.
Then, I cut out some green and red gnomes. They are so fun to give different personalities just by how you place their beard and hat and nose.
Then for a little more decoration, I used the Oh Christmas Tree Bundle to cut and stamp out the greenery and clustered them with the gnomes.

Happy Release Day! If you’ve been joining us all week, you know that The Cat Pack has been having a great time with our NEW Stamp Sets, Dies & Stencilz. Today’s Blog Hop is the cream of their projects and cards.
If you came here from Rebekah Weckerly’s blog you’ve reached the end of the hop. If you didn’t, or want to see it again, hop over to Kerry Urbatch’s blog. That’s the beginning of the hop.
I LOVE Halloween. Especially Vintage, Victorian Halloween. I’ve been wanting to do a Home Decor piece. I was inspired by these crystal balls, and when I saw them I knew I had to do a set Cat’s Pajamas style.
I glued candlesticks and a vase from the Dollar Tree together with E6000 and topped them with little glass cups that I recycled from a package of Creme Brûlée from Costco and spray painted them gloss black.
I used our NEW The Neighboohood Stencilz to create the inside of these balls on acetate using permanent ink. I rolled them up and inserted them and glued a ring of fairy lights to the base of the ball so that I could light them up at night.
Spooky flowers and leaves adorn the top of the stands for a truly Victorian feel. The globes nestle comfortably in the flowers. I added the spider on the globe for extra creep.
Here’s a video, showing how I created these crystal balls. They really were fun to put together and came together really quickly
This month’s Sneaky Peek Week went so very fast! I’m going to have to go though all the pretties posted along with today’s Blog Hop. If you want to take a second look at all the lovelies The Cat Pack created for the hop, check out the links below.
It’s FINALLY Release Day and I am so excited to bring you this awesome collection. Throughout the week we’ve been showing you all the great stamps and dies and how you can use them in your cards. Today, we are going all out and the ENTIRE Cat Pack is hopping.
If you came from Brenda’s Blog, you are at the end of the hop. If not, go to Melissa’s Blog and start there.
For my card, I decided to go the black, white, and yellow combo route. For a little twist, I added a little grey in the stripe and divine twine.
I’ve been itching to use our NEW FolkArt Bundle and the Flutter ByDie. So, of course I had to pull them out for my hop card. I really love how the Flutter By die pierces, cuts, embosses and stitches all at once. It give a wonderful sense of movement. I’m going to be using this die again and again.
This card uses Versafine Clair black ink and my favorite Marvy in yellow. I have yet to find an ink that stamps detailed stamps and has so many colors. I did use my Misti and stamped a couple of times to get really good coverage of the stamp. The white is Stampin’ Up craft ink that I embossed in detail white powder.
I also wanted to play in the TCP Tuesday Move It Challenge so I pulled out my new favorite interactive die, the Spiral CutUps. It’s so easy to make the inside of your card pop with this die.
I pulled out the Butterfly Trio and cut 4 white butterflies. I also cut 3 butterflies using the Flutter By Die and put them on acetate strips for more height and movement. I’m really proud of this little card. Here’s a little video on how I made it.
If you want a second look at The Cat Pack, take another peek. The cards are definitely worth it. C’mon! You know you want to.
We LOVE Coffee here at The Cat’s Pajamas. And, tea and cocoa. So, it’s no wonder that we are one of the Super Sponsors for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop.
As a Super Sponsor we’re giving away 2— $25 vouchers as a grand prize and 2— $10 Flash Prize vouchers. Want to play along? Just create a card featuring our favorite, maybe yours too, beverage. 😉 Then, link it to the hop here, by May 10th. If you need more info, click this link.
Now, let’s look at what The Cat Packers have created.
Finally, Cristene Bagne brings a smile to my face with the adorable penguins from the Big Cups Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the Sponsored by Stamp Set, and stamped on a “stamp” from the 4 Seasons Duo Die.
I’m so glad you were able to take a peep at how crazy about coffee we are.
Now it’s your turn. Take a look here for more players in the hop and then create. Good Luck.
Hey Y’all. It’s RELEASE Day! I hope you are as excited as I am. I don’t know about you, but I was still thinking Christmas and Holiday until the first week of January. So, when I went to stamp it was such a joy to stamp and use products that weren’t Holiday or Christmas. I really, really enjoyed playing with our January Collection.
We’ve had some wonderful cards from The Cat Pack this Week and some truly inspiring cards from Special Guest Designer, Julee Tillman. We were so blessed to have her join us and are so blessed that she is joining us in this blog hop.
If you came to this post from Wendy Mcgaffey then you have come to the end of the hop. If you didn’t, go back to Kerry Urbatch’s blog, the start of the hop.
You know the saying “business in the front, party in the back”? When, I make cards like this, that saying is my guide. I tend to make the front of the cards a little plain, since the excitement will come when the card is opened.
The front is just a couple of different patterned paper and the NEW Stitched Enjoy CutUps. What is so great about this die is that it’s a deeply etched die, which means that you can cut a thicker material than regular. I glued together 3 layers of black cardstock, let it dry and cut through it for dimension. It also makes the word a little less “floppy”, if you know what I mean.
Here is the inside.
I love coffee and I wanted to show the energy that coffee gives me. So, I used the NEW Coffee Clatch CutUps to cut up different papers to paper piece the “characters” and used acetate strips to pop them up and dance.
Once I finished the card, I decided that I needed to add stitching to the cups. Unfortunately, I think that I had too much of my favorite beverage and the “stitching came out a little wonky. Plus, I was a little lazy and did this after the cups were attached to the acetate. Note to self: Don’t be lazy.
I do love this card, though. I hope you liked my card and our Blog Hop. I encourage you to take another peek. I know I will.
It’s FINALLY Release Day here at The Cat’s Pajamas! I know that you’ve been enjoying all the Sneaky Peeks that The Cat Pack and UBER Special Guest Designer, Julee Tilman have created. They have really showed off our October Collection.
Since today is Release Day, we’ve put together a really great Blog Hop for your viewing pleasure. If you came from Wendy McGaffey’s blog, you are at the right place. I’m the end of the hop. If you haven’t, go back to the start, to Michele Ferguson‘s blog.
For my Blog Hop card, I decided to go a little vintage.
After I created the base of the card, I pulled out the Wish Tag Duo and cut two tags, one patterned and one black and tilted them a bit so that the black acted as sort of a mat.
Then, I colored up the Gnome from the NEW Gnome for the Holidays Stamp set. To make the gnome even more special, I added a wee bit of puff paint to the brim of the hat and the poms on his shoes. I have to say I love the Holidays cause it’s practically the only time I can bring out the puff paint. 😀
I cut the snowflakes from the blue paper. I used paper that I purchased from Michael’s and it was really thin, so I mounted it on white paper the same size as the blue. Then, I inset the silver snowflakes for a bit of shine.
I hope you liked the cards and the blog hop. If you missed anyone, here is a list of the Hoppers.
Wow! It’s the middle of June and SUMMER is here! And, so is Sneaky Peek Week. On June 26, we’ll be releasing 3 New Stamp Sets and 4 NEW CutUps. Each day, one of our talented Cat Packers will be featured to show off their take on these goodies.
I may be a bit behind the times but the first time that I ever heard the word “Adulting” was on VanderPump Rules. That means doing adult things like buying “real furniture” and buying a home. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get tired of “adulting” and just want to PLAY! So, this card is perfect. It features our NEW Penguin Summer Stamp Set and a NEW to the shop alphabet set, Big, Little, Alphabet. This set is all lowercase and nearly 1.5″ high. It is a great size and has quickly become my new favorite die set.
This next card features the NEW Liquid Therapy Stamp Set. The black panel is edged with the Eyelet CutUps. Deborah creates the lime with our NEW Margarita CutUps!
After seeing Deborah’s great cards, I had to get inky. So, I pulled out the NEW Penguin Summer Stamp Set and the NEW Going Round & Round Die and create this fun slider/roller card. The NEW Going Round & Round Die contains four dies that cut 6 shapes, including 2 slots. It’s such a fun die set, that is so perfect with our New Penguin Stamp Set, I knew I had to add it to the shop. Check out how easy it is to use this set.
That’s all for today!
I hope you liked Deborah Anton‘s cards today. Stop by her blog and instagram (beadnstampn) and leave her a message. You could win a $10 gift voucher just by leaving a comment. Leave a comment. We’ll pick a winner each day this week and post here and on our Facebook page. Don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see even more goodies.
Finally! It’s RELEASE DAY! I am so HAPPY to bring you April’s NEW Release. 4 Stamp Sets and 4 CutUps Dies. (the Eyelet CutUps is a FREE gift with a $65 purchase) If you love PUPPIES then you will love this release!
If you came from the MOST TALENTED Nancy, then you are in the right place. If not, then go back to Deborah! You won’t be sorry if you do. There is so much to see.
So here is my card. I have a friend who had a Boston Terrier. Madison was a little princess that won everyone’s heart, so I had to take this puppy from the NEW Whee! Stamp Set and color it like her. I created a little shaker filled with stars as a background for her, using the circle frame and used the bone as an embellishment.
To color up this pretty, I used colored pencils and gamsol even on the patterned paper that I paper pieced on the pillow. I fell it love with this little puppy so much that I had to use my precious stash of sparkley hearts. She’s worth it.
This card is also my contribution to the TCP Tuesday DieCutting Challenge. There is still time to enter. Check the deets here. That’s it for me. If you want a direct link to the rest of the hoppers, here they are.
