Squeezing in one last August new release card tonight. (I planned to post it for Saturday but the time got away from me. Whoops!) SO, our adorable Bunny is enjoying the dog days of Summer playing some BASEBALL!
The PLAY BALL digi set allows for sizing the main image in any size that you like. I made him super big to fit on this baseball shaped card. I printed and cut Bunny, the sentiment, and the ball using Silhouette Studio software and then added a slight offset and cut out. I added paper “stitches” so that I could create the ball. It’s all colored with Copics with tiny wood stars and thick stripe-y twine to tie it up. Wood pattern on the bat added with a thin marker.
Happy Tuesday everyone! Angela back with a fun card featuring another fun digital stamp – Superhero.
With the 4th of July coming up this next weekend I wanted to do a Red, White and Blue theme.
I printed my image on Copic Xpress It cardstock and colored with Copic Markers:
Bunny: N1, N3, N5, R20
Eye Mask, Cape and Shirt: R46, R35, R17, B18
White Gel Pen
I cut my cardbase to fit on a standard A2 cardbase using Blue cardstock. Next I cut a layer of pattern paper (from my stash from CTMH) and inked the pattern paper with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide- Chipped Sapphire. I cut 2 strips in red and inked them with the same Chipped Sapphire Oxide.
Next I cut a circle with white cardstock to mount my Super Hero Bunny on and inked with the same Distress Oxide Ink.
Next I used foam tape to pop up my bunny with. I cut the sentiment strip, and then handcut the banner end. I also inked the sentiment and then used foam tape to pop up and adhere to the card. Lastly, I used some enamel dots in White and Blue and some Stars in Red to carry on the Red, White and Blue theme.
Who would you give a card to and let them know they are your Superhero? For me it would be my Mom. I would love to hear yours!
Hey everyone! Angela back with a fun card featuring the digital image Kick Some Grass.
I just love these bunny characters and could not wait to make a card with this fella. Whereas I normally am all about layers and different patterns, this card, I wanted the image and the scene to be the star of the card, so I went a bit more simple. I printed the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock and then cut down.
I cut down piece of black cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Next I cut a piece of pink plaid pattern paper I had from my stash (Mintay paper pad in my stash) and cut a strip from the other side to be in the upper part of the card. I inked both papers with Archival Black Ink from Ranger. I added a black strip to break up the patterns.
I colored my image with Copics:
Bunny: W1, W3, W5, RV10, R20
Grass: YG63 , BG93
Flowers: RV02, RV10, R20, Y35
I used a cloud stencil, with Distress Oxide in Tumbled Glass to create clouds around my bunny. I didn’t do any fancy masking for this, just was lighthanded with my inking.
I added to a piece of light blue cardstock from my stash and added to the card. I cut the sentiment down and added to the bottom. I decided to add some hand drawn stitching to the sentiment and the blue layer. I also inked the remaining layers to carry on the feel of the card.
Lastly I added some black enamel dots to both bottom corners, to add the finishing touches. I can’t wait to give this to a friend and write a fun note in it. Hoping that this scene makes her smile and makes you smile as well.
Hi TCP friends! It’s Brenda with another fun card featuring our beloved Bunny and a plethora of May flowers called Bloom.
This digi set comes with the Bunny and 2 sweet sentiments.
For this card, I used Silhouette Studio software to resize the Bun and to isolate and enlarge some of the wonderful flowers from his bouquet. Information on how to resize and edit the TCP digis can be found in Alma’s video here.
The other thing you’ll notice is the fun Tri-Shutter Card Cutable. It was also cut using Silhouette Studio and is easy to assemble with a how-to video here. This card was started by editing, printing, and cutting the Bunny and flowers. All were colored with Copic markers and a little dab of Nuvo drops in the centers of the flowers.
The card itself and coordinating mats were cut using the Cutable. I folded the “shutters”, ran the ribbon and adhered the mats. The sentiment was printed on white cardstock and matted with a yellow cardstock square. Bunny was popped up, using foam tape, onto a solid and coordinating design paper circular mat. Finally the flowers were placed around the card using more foam tape to adhere as shown.
I hope you like my card and give these digis and Cutables a try. I also want to remind you the progressive sale on stamps, dies and stencils is still going on at 40% off. Don’t hesitate any longer, some have already sold out and once they are gone, they are really gone.
Hello friends. It’s Christine and I’m popping in with a cute pair of cards from The Cat’s Pajamas April Digital Release! Have you heard TCP is going digital? Now there will be a constant supply of adorable designs to play with. It also means a big SALE going on too. More on that at the end of this post.
Today’s designs showcase some cute little bunnies enjoying Spring. I think the paper kind of bunnies are adorable, not so much when they are in my gardens. For this first design I’m using the new Bliss Digiwhich speaks to my book lover heart. This little dude is perched on a stack of books with a warm cup of coffee and enjoying some reading time. I had the perfect patterned paper to match where I wanted to go with this card from Echo Park called Coffee and Friends. I thought this sheet of patterned cups would be a great pairing to the design.
I’ve coloured the image with Copics to match the tones in the paper.
You can also see that I coloured some flower designs to the coffee cup on the book stack to match the designer paper, and then also added some flowered patterned paper on this great TCP cup and saucer die called Coffee Clatch CutUps Die. Doesn’t it make a great accent for the design?
Just a couple of enamel dots accent the card for fun.
For the next card I’m playing with another new bunny digi called Flutter By.
Here our favourite big-eared bunny is frolicking in the grass hunting butterflies. It’s a great little design to pop a sweet note to a friend.
Colouring is done with Copics in some blue-green and peach and gray shades.
For the background, I used an awesome TCP Stencil, Succulent, and Distress Oxide Ink (Evergreen Bough), and SU’s Blush Blossom ink with my stencil brushes to add the right tones of colour in the background to match the colouring. To anchor the scene I added TCP’s Grass Die that I love so much, as well as a bit of stitched grossgrain ribbon underneath to tie in the colours.
Because TCP is going Digital Alma is having a progressive SALE on all in-stock goodies. There are great deals to be had on stamps, dies, stencils and embellies. This month its 30% off! You discount will be applied in your cart. So don’t miss out! Thanks for joining me today!
Hi everyone! Angela here, with my first post on this awesome DT. Today I am sharing a card I made featuring the Flutter By Digital Stamp. Not only do I think this is the cutest image ever, but I absolutely love the sentiment that I used with the card. The image comes with 3 sentiments in total- but I knew I had to use this one- because I had just been teasing my husband about still giving me butterflies even after 16 years.
I printed the image on Neenah Classic Crest Cardstock and then cut with a Stitched Circle Die. I then cut a slightly larger circle with my pattern paper.
I tend to be a Spectrum Noir marker gal, but I decided to break out my Copics for today’s card.
Bunny: N1, N3, N5, N7
Nose: RV52, R32
Net: B00, B02, BG00, BG10, White Gel Pen
I made my card base a standard A2 Card, and then cut my patterned layer at 4″ x 5 1/4″. I used my distressing tool to rough up the card base as well as my patterned layer. I then cut a strip in the same cardstock I used for my base, and then cut a strip of pattern paper from the same pattern pack I used for my base layer, and circle. I then used my distress tool to distress the edges of my circles.
I cut a strip with the sentiment printed on it and then used the same cardstock from my base and middle strip, to layer my sentiment. I cut both pieces on an angle and used foam tape to adhere the sentiment strip to the bottom of the card.
A few enamel dots in coordinating colors added the finishing touches.
Don’t forget to check out all the helpful how-to videos on YouTube and don’t miss out on the 30% off sale on all in-stock stamps, stencils, dies, and embellishments in the TCP store. Get them while you can!
I hope you enjoyed my card, and I cannot wait to continue sharing with you!
I don’t know about you, but spring is my favorite season of the year. It’s Brenda here with 2 cute boxes perfect for spring or Easter, but they could be used any time of year. Their cuteness factor is off the scale.
The Carrot and Bunny Treat Boxes are 2 of the digital cutting files that are new in the TCP store. I’ve been having a blast learning about all the things you can do with digital images and cutting files. Alma has created a great how to video for the carrot here and the bunny here.
I used a Silhouette to cut the cardstock and patterned paper for all three of these boxes. The Carrot Box Cutable also include a PDF file so you can cut them even without an electronic machine. This carrot was cut from textured cardstock and some fun dotty and gingham design papers. I adjusted the size of the carrot to suit my needs using the Silhouette Design Studio.
The bunnies were cut from textured cardstock. I made one a bit bigger than the other by resizing the image before ungrouping it in the Silhouette Design Studio. Cardstock scraps were used to cut the eyes, cheeks, ears and nose. Instead of using the fun 3D bow in the cut file, I decided to use some springy ribbon I had on hand. Just look at that cute little tail popped up on foam squares.
Don’f forget to check out all the helpful how to videos on YouTube and don’t miss out on the 30% off sale on all in stock stamps, stencils, dies and embellies in the TCP store. Get them while you can
If you are like me and trekked out to the stores for Easter goodies, you are aghast at the cost of treat holders or baskets. So, why not make your own? Our NEW Bunny Treat Boxes are made using our downloadable Cutables. Because they are .svg and .dxf files, you can make them any size you wish and use any paper you have that will go through your electronic cutting machine
These cuties have an open box in the center where you can place your goodies, and closes with this cute bow tie. Not a fan of the bow tie? You can always add a ribbon instead.
The back of the bunny has fluffy tail. I could imagine a whole table of these cuties or in an Easter Basket holding even more goodies. The Bunny Treat Box Cutable is darling, and so easy to make. Check out the video to see how easy.
Then, get out the rest of our New Easter Digis and Cutables. They are downloadable in your TCP account or receipt right after purchase.
And, don’t forget. We are clearing the warehouse of all our physical product as we go digital.
Happy Hump Day! It’s Day #4 of Sneaky Peek Week and today we are laser focused on SPRING. To me, Spring is all about green and growing and birth. So, for this Peek I designed this cute set of baby animals. They are perfect buy themselves or embellishing a card. I didn’t get cute with the name of these guys. I figured they were cute enough as it is. I call these dies Lamb/Bunny/Chick
This set of dies available now, along with the rest of our January Release. If you can wait until Jan 26, and want the entire release, or all the stamps, you can get them at a discount.
Wendy McGaffey starts us off with these darling tags. You can use them on cards or on your Easter Baskets. If the stitched Lamb/Bunny/Chick weren’t cute enough, they come with a carrot, egg shell and little hooves to decorate the animals.
This set of dies comes with the stitched chick as the base body. If you want to make a bunny, just place the bunny head over it. To make the lamb, add the head and hooves. Then, embellish with whichever accessories you wish.
This little card from Brenda Nakandakari’s shows off what I mean. The adorable bunny card is super clean and simple. The bunny stands on a field of flowers holding its adorable stitched carrot. Just darling.
It’s a super cute pillow that can be hung from a chair or a door. I think it’s pretty amazing.
Here’s a closer look. Leigh O’Brien adds beads for the eyes and ribbon stitching for the ears of the Lamb and Bunny for even more interest. The NEW Grassy Patches die cut adds a great base for all the little figures.
And there are more goodies to be oogled! Check out The Cat Pack’s blogs below for a peek at how they used ththis adorable CutUps. Comment on each of them and you could win a $10 gift voucher.

Happy July! Can you believe that Summer is halfway through? Today, we are celebrating with the first day of Sneaky Peek Week. Our official Release Day is July 30, which is when you can get our entire release. But, if you can’t wait, you can order whatever has been Sneaky Peeked the day that we Peek it.
I’m kicking off the beginning of the week with this DARLING long-eared bunny. There is nothing better on a hot summer day than relaxing in a field of flowers. At least that’s what the bunny is thinking.
This card from Melissa Chipperfield is just too sweet. Her bunny’s nose is the only thing colored, but he is still a stand out. The sentiment and 3 stripes to suggest the sun and it’s a subtle addition that finishes off this card.
I love this card by Nancy Thomas. She stamps the bunny off to the side and I think that’s awesome. Beautifully colored, he IS the star. For even more fun she uses a stamp from our Watercolor Basics Stamp Set as the “sun” and stamps the sentiment on it. Brilliant!
Finally, Cristena Bagne creates a sweet scene with the NEW Kickin’ it Stamp Set. Check out her blog for a closer look. Her coloring is just wonderful and I love the addition of the dainty gingham. It really pulls the whole thing together.
