Sneaky Peek-Meowy Christmas

The sneaky peeks continue today at The Cat's Pajamas with a look at The New Nice, a set featuring Sprinkle, one of TCP's most beloved characters--and a special sale.  It's TCP's 10th Anniversary and we've decided to give a little something back this year. So on Black Friday and Saturday you can purchase all our NEW Limited Edition stamp sets and dies EARLY. Yup, that's before the official release. AND we'll give you FREE shipping in the US and FREE International Shipping on all orders over $65. Happy Anniversary from us to you!

I made this clean and simple holiday card for today's peek using the current sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch.  It also fits this week's bloggers challenge Countdown to Christmas theme. I stamped Sprinkle in Versafine’s black ink—it’s my favorite for inking images I want to be a nice, solid black. The gift boxes are colored in red and green with a little bit of silver gel pen mixed in on some of the ribbons for some sparkle. I stamped the set’s “meowy Christmas” sentiment in the open space next to the image.

The colored panel is matted on a green panel, then layered over a festive red and green chevron patterned strip I set across a red card base. The chevrons kind of go with Sparkle's retro vibe!

  1. Pretty card Lori - like the traditional Christmas colors and the chevron paper. Thanks for the tip about Versafine Black, I will have to try it, I am unsatisfied with all my black ink pads... and I have like 4 of them! Hope your Thanksgiving was a good one!
