Release Day and TCP Tuesday

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.


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:
