TCP Sneaky Peek Week
It is a wonderful day to be a fan of The Cat's Pajamas stamps! Today is the 1st day of Sneaky Peek Week and I've been lucky enough to play along with the Cat Pack with the amazing new stamps and CutUps dies!
Just so you know, the official release party will take place on Monday, October 28th, at 8:00
PM EST in the TCP Forum at Splitcoaststampers. There is always a lot of fun to be had, extra Sneaky Peeks to admire and fabulous prizes to be had!
Now I bet you're wondering to yourself "How did she get this sweet gig?". Well today is also TCP Tuesday (so my card is doing double duty for Sneaky Peek Week and as my challenge
card). The challenge for October is an anti embellishment challenge and there is still time to play along. This month it is all about the stamps and not the embellishments. Your challenge is to create a card with little to no embellishments, certainly no more than 2 and no buttons, gems or twine. Catch Alma's eye and you could be the next Swanky Stamper (and it really is a pretty sweet gig to have)!
The set today is called Peace, Joy, and Penguins. I just smiled when I read the included sentiments in this set. The "Dear Santa I can explain...." sentiment is so going to be used in my December Daily this year when the boys are writing out their lists to Santa. Now Larry, Darryl, and Darryl are doing their very best to behave themselves. And they seem to be doing a pretty good job, except for Darryl there in the middle.....
Now in keeping with the anti-embelly challenge, these little guys have been colored with Copic markers. For my bling (that isn't really bling), I accented my coloring with a few Wink of Stella glitter pens and a smidge of vintage German glass glitter is on Darryl's hat. There is also a tiny smattering of sequins (sequins are NOT gems...or so I keep telling myself). Anyone who knows me knows that this was a tough card to make. :-)
Now do yourself a favor and head on over to the TCP Forum and chat it up in the In It to Win It Thread. Every day, Alma randomly selects one lucky commenter from all the comments to win the stamp set peeked that day.
Well what do you think? Did I manage to catch this trio's sweet personalities?
