Be Jolly, By Golly!

Sneaky peeks are starting today for the upcoming release from The Cat’s Pajamas! Seven new stamp sets and three brand new dies will be coming your way on Tuesday, October 29.  How exciting!

Today we’re showing off the new Peace, Joy, and Penguins set featuring our favorite penguin trio. The layout on my festive design is inspired by the current Deconstructed Sketch. I colored the penguins just a bit—when you’re this cute, you don’t need much extra, right?—then matted the colored image on a red cardstock panel.

I cut circles from three different coordinating patterned papers and adhered them to a piece of green dotted patterned paper. It took a few shifts and switches to settle on an arrangement I liked. The circles are topped with a strip of red stitched grosgrain ribbon. I set the image panel in place over the circles and ribbon strip. There was just enough room left to stamp the “be jolly, by golly!” sentiment at the bottom of the card in black ink and to scatter a few super sparkly silver sequins around the card.

Don’t miss the rest of the Cat Pack members sharing peeks of this new set today. Here’s where to find them:
