The Cat's Pajamas Blog Hop



Hello again my crafty friends.  For the last week, we have previewed The Cat's Pajamas new releases and now we're celebrating with a blog hop.  If you arrived here from Brenda's blog, you're in the right place.  If not you can start at the beginning at Kerry's blog. Hop through the entire lineup and prepare to be inspired!

My sweet card has a Valentine lovey dovey feel to it.  My favorite long eared bunny is part of the new Don't Be Koi stamp set. As well as the bunny, in this set there are four sentiments to choose from and a bucket of heart chum.  I stamped the hearts from the bucket below the heart on the fishing line.  Behind the bunny layer is the Round Bubbles Cutups die. I stamped the sentiment, then matted it and popped it up to make it stand out.  I laid two strips of patterned paper, popped up the bunny layer, and finished my card with some ribbon and the new Holographic Pink Holeless Sequins.  If you like sequins, you will love these!  You get four different sizes in the generous helping of goodness.  Also check out the Silver Saucers Holeless Sequins.  


 


Now hop on over to Wendy's blog to see her creative take on this fabulous new release.

Sneaky Peak #5



 Hello my crafty friends!  It's day 5 of Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas and today we're featuring the beautiful CutUps die set Enjoy. The set includes two dies, the word enjoy and the stitched background.  It's a good size to use on your cards or scrapbook pages.  Earlier in the week I used part of the stitched background as a cloud.  I love it when I can use my dies for more than their intended purpose.

My card today shows the Enjoy die as more than a sentiment.  It's actually the first element you see when look at the card.  I can see this being used with the new coffee themed Freshly Brewed Heaven stamp set and the new Coffee Clatch CutUps die set. 
Enjoy the newest release from The Cat's Pajama's.  I'm sure you'll find one or two products that you love!

The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek #3


 Hello my crafty friends!  It's day 3 of Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas and today we're featuring the adorable stamp set Freshly Brewed Heaven.  I love anything with a coffee or tea theme, so I was thrilled when I saw this set with matching dies.  The die set, Coffee Clatch will be featured later in the release.

My project today uses both the stamps and CutUps dies. I stamped the coffee mugs with saucers on patterned paper, then die cut them.  I cut off the saucer for one mug and stamped and cut the saucer out in a different color for the other mug.  The foam and steam in the mugs were also die cut from the Coffee Clatch CutUps die set.  Take a close look at the steam, so darn cute! I chose on of the cute sentiments and stamped it on pink paper.  A few embellishments and I have a sweet card to give to one of my coffee loving friends.

The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek #2



Happy New Year my crafty friends!  I hope this finds you happy and healthy in this fabulous new year.

We're changing things ups a bit at The Cat's Pajamas.  We'll have a new release every other month, and during Sneaky Peek Week, we'll showcase a new product every day.  The great thing is that the new products will be available for purchase on the day we feature them.   

The featured product yesterday was the super adorable Don't Be Koi stamp set which stars our favorite long eared bunny.   Check out The Cat's Pajamas blog to see what you might have missed.
 
Today, we're featuring the Always Believe stamp set which has this purrsonality filled kitty.  I know, so obvious, but I couldn't help it! Oh how I love this guy!  If you purchase the stamp set, you can download the cutting file for your electronic cutting machine for FREE! 

For my card I stamped the kitty and colored him with Copic markers, then stamped the umbrella on the yellow polka dot paper and fussy cut it out. For the sentiment, I stamped it, cut it apart, then matted each piece on red paper.  The cloud is die cut from the new Enjoy CutUps die, which will be featured later this week.  The set has the Enjoy die as well as the stitched shadow.  I die cut the bottom border using Wavy Stitched Border CutUps die, already available in the shop. I finished by embellishing with the new Holeless Sequins in Silver Saucers. These are truly some of the prettiest sequins that I've ever seen.  They're a little fancier than regular sequins and are soooo shiny!

November Release Day!


Hello my crafty friends.  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  

It's Release Day at The Cat's Pajamas and we're celebrating with a blog hop.  Available today are six new die sets and three new stamp sets.  If you hopped here from Deborah's blog, then you're in the right place.  If not, you can start at the beginning of the hop at Kerry's blog.

Before I show you my project, I want to remind you that The Cat's Pajamas is having a big sale.  You can get up to 40% off your purchase, including the brand new products being released today.  But hurry, the sale ends today, so get shopping before it ends!




I just love this cute little bunny.  He's always been one of my favorites.  This month he's available holding a flag or an umbrella in the new Look for the Rainbows stamp set. I showcased the umbrella bunny in my previous post, so this time the flag toting bunny makes his debut.  I colored him using Copic markers, then fussy cut his nose, the flag and heart out of pink patterned papers.  I die cut the sentiment using the new and fabulous Stitched Hello die set, and those delicate gold glitter arrows were die cut using the new Lacy Arrows die set which are FREE with a $65 purchase.  I used the Heart Rosette die behind the bunny layer.

I think that this would make a lovely Valentine card for a friend or family member.  Not sappy, just the right amount of sweetness to let them know that you are thinking of them.

Now hop on over to Alma's blog to see what she has created for your viewing pleasure.

Hello my crafty friends and Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are surrounded by family and friends on this special day.  I'll make it short this month so you can get back to spending time with your loved ones.  

The Cat's Pajamas is having a big sale!!  From now until November 27th, you can get up to 40% off all in stock items. This is a great opportunity to stock up on all of those items you've been keeping your eyes on,

It's Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas.  Available on Tuesday, November 27th are three stamp sets and 6 dies. The dies for this release are mostly big words, which I absolutely love. 

My first card is made with my favorite bunny from the new Look For The Rainbows stamp set. I also used the Wish Tag Duo die, which is currently available in the TCP shop.


 
For this sweet card I used the new Stitched Big Hugs die.  This die, as well as the other big word dies are very versatile.  They all can be used as I have used it here, or you can used just the words, which you will see on my next card.
 



For this card, I used the new Stitched Thanks die, but used the letters without the stitched background.  I also created the same card and used the stitched background with the Big Word Basics stamp set to create a card that looks slightly different.
 



For a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the store, comment on each of the designer's blogs on a daily basis including mine today and also on my Instagram account @lynnsprinkled. Winners will be announced on The Cat's Pajamas Blog and Facebook page each day.
