Fly High

The Cat's Pajamas just had another super SWANKY release this past Tuesday and since I received my order yesterday (yes....Miss Meowy ships THAT fast) I just had to get my favorite set from the release inky.  I'm squeeking this in for the final few hours of the August TCP Tuesday challenge to create a card that will go in a long, tall envelope.

Fly High

Do you ever see a stamp set and immediately have an idea pop in your head?  Well, as soon as I saw this adorable Bun Bun Ears of Doom (BBEoD for short as us long time TCP fans call him) set called "Fly High", I absolutely knew what I wanted to create.  I think this one will get slipped in my youngest sons backpack (he loves anything to do with space).  The inside has the "You are a Star" sentiment stamped inside.

I don't know if you can tell, but the card is a slider.  BBEoD floats along on the card.  Don't worry though, he is tethered to the Mod, Mod World (retired TCP) rocket piloted by the uber reliable Poochie by some divine twine.  Below on the "red planet" is the sweetest little martian that you'll ever see Love Robot (both he and Poochie are available as rubber stamps in the TCP store).  I debossed a polka dot pattern on the planet for some fun texture.

Here is a detail shot showing the slider a little better.

Thanks for stopping by!  I have another fun card idea for another one of my new sets.  Don't know if my idea will work with this particular challenge, but I do plan getting another set inky hopefully tomorrow!




Hello!  I recently held an ATC swap on the TCP member forum over on SCS.  There were 10 TCP fans including myself who participated in this swap and there was a lot of itty bitty eye candy to be had.

Here is the ATC that I created for the swap.

Looking for Rainbows

The stamp is called Hare Today and features the bunny that us TCP have affectionally named Bun Bun Ears of Doom (or BBEoD for short).  You are just doomed to love him once you see those long ears!  LOL!  I made the rainbow by coloring clear bling with my Copic markers.  I have always wanted to try this and I don't see myself purchasing colored bling going forward.  Super easy technique with the Copics.  The ATC has a little paper piecing going on and BBEoD is stamped on SU Shimmery White cardstock with just a hint of Copic coloring.  There is some divine twine around the bottom and a super sparkly cloud (Doodlebug Glitter Cardstock) die cut with the Cloud Border die from TCP.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a clear overlay (couldn't fit in the sentiment any other way).  

Hope you're having a wonderrful day!

Stamp-A-Faire Meet and Greet

Today is the long anticipated Stamp-a-Faire!  Last night I tidied up my workspace so I would actually have more than a 6x6 area to work in and got my SAF stamps sets (and maybe a new release stamp set or two) put away in TH folders (well really the HL brand).  I'm ready!

Here you can see my desk (there IS white space under there...LOL!

And here is a self portrait of me (REALLY wish my arms were a bit longer) wearing my Stamp-a-Faire apron.
