The Cat's Pajamas August Release Blog Hop
Welcome to our August release blog hop at The Cat’s Pajamas. You should have arrived here from Swanky Stamper Joyce’s blog. If not, be sure to start at the top at Alma’s blog so you don’t miss a thing!
I thought I’d give this month’s TCP Tuesday challenge to make a tall, thin card one more try. I used the new Fly High set for this one.
I made an outerspace backdrop for the image with some blue cardstock stamped with the star trio found in the set and a portion of a debossed circle for a moon. Once the moon was in place, I used foam tape to put the bunny into the scene. I stamped the “fly high” sentiment under the image in black ink. The upper right corner of the scene is accented with a little pennant piece from then new CutUps Bitty Banners die set.
And, here’s one more card to share with some new goodies from this release. Here, I used the new Sassy Birthday set and the new CutUps Framed Up dies for a birthday card.
I used the chalkboard technique for the sentiment panel. And, yes, the oval sentiment from the Sassy Birthday set fits perfectly in the oval found in the new CutUps Framed Up dies! I used foam tape to attach the sentiment to a purple panel also cut with the Framed Up dies, then attached the panel to the cardfront over a gray notch-ended strip. I accented the sentiment with some purple and silver sequins.
That's all for me for now--I'm sure you'll be seeing more of the new releases here soon! Your next stop on the hop is Leigh. You don’t want to miss what she’s got to show off!
