Sneaky Peek-Anything Is Possible

The Cat's Pajamas is now 10 years old and we're celebrating with a new release! Alma started making rubber stamps at her dining room table, hand cutting rubber and cushion and attaching them to wood blocks to sell to the local stamp stores where she was teaching. And so much has happened to stamping in 10 years. But our love of stamping is still going strong. So this release, we are excited to celebrate the way we started. With rubber stamps. Not just any rubber stamps. Cling Stamp sets for easy storage and positioning. Perfect for those who love rubber, but also love the convenience and ease of clear. Limited Edition because these stamps are extra special. Lovingly assembled at Alma's dining room table. Just like she did 10 years ago. So snap them up, because only a small number will be made. Her table is only so big.

Here’s my card featuring the new Soar set (yes, the bunny's back again!) and the new 3x3 Star CutUps dies, too. I used this week’s Mojo Monday sketch for the card. The big circle panel made the perfect moon-like backdrop for the rocketship riding bunny! The circle is debossed with a circle pattern and sprayed with a little (okay, maybe more than a little . . .) shimmer spritz for a sparkly look. The two smaller circles are also debossed with a dotted pattern, but on a smaller scale to match their smaller size.

I stamped the set’s “anything is possible” sentiment in navy ink on a turquoise strip. It’s anchored with a pair of stars, die cut with the new CutUps 3x3 Star die.  I cut the smaller one from wood paper to squeeze in a wood element to fit this week’s TCP Tuesday challenge.

Be sure to stop by TCP forum on SCS to check out more Sneaky Peeks from the Cat Pack and to chat with other TCP fans on the In It to Win It thread.  Every day during Sneaky Peek week, one lucky In It to Win It commenter  will win one of the new releases!  I’ll be back with yet another sneaky peek tomorrow. Today  I’m looking forward spending some time today with the people—and the puppy—that I’m thankful for. Chloe the cutie puppy and I are going to spend some time at the dog park, her most favorite place in the world, before having dinner with my family later on today. I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with family and friends and food--and maybe some football, too!
