Bring on the Sneaky Peeks--and the Cake, Too!

Today’s the start of Sneaky Peek week at The Cat’s Pajamas. We’re showing off the newest TCP stamps and dies that will be available for purchase on Tuesday, August 27.

Here’s a look at the new Bring on the Cake stamp set. My card’s based on the current Deconstructed Sketch. I colored the bunny and cake image and fussy cut it, then used foam tape to adhere it to a white panel. The panel’s layered over a pair of coordinating solid cardstock panels that I arranged on a brown panel with a strip of patterned paper across it. A little bit of machine stitching gave the panels some nice definition. I attached a strip of pink grosgrain ribbon at the bottom of the image panel, then used a piece of foam tape to adhere a kraft circle with the set’s “bring on the cake” sentiment to one end of the ribbon.
