Sneaky Peek-Joy to the World

Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas wraps up today with a look at the new Joy to the World
set.  Tomorrow will be the big release of seven new stamp sets, four new CutUps die sets, and two new Cutables cut files.

Joy to the World card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Cat's Pajamas
Here's my card featuring the new set.  I colored TCP's penguin trio using Copic markers, then used foam tape to adhere the colored image to a green dotted paper panel.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I added a little white flock to the pom pom on the striped hat to give the image a little texture.

The set's "joy to the world" sentiment was stamped on a red banner strip die cut with TCP's CutUps Framed Up 2 die.  I added the sentiment to the top of the patterned paper panel, then accented it with a green button tied with black twine. The finished panel was adhered to a gray card base.

We've got lots of fun planned for the week leading up to the big release.  Be sure to stop by the TCP member company forum on SCS to chat with the Cat Pack and other TCP fans in our traditional In It to Win It thread.  Each day, one lucky commenter will be chosen to win one of the new stamp sets before you can buy it.  Don't miss out on the fun--and the chance to win!

Don't miss what the rest of the Cat Pack has created using this new set.  Here's where to find them:

Lori--you're here

And, don't miss out on tonight's Pajama Party in the TCP member company forum on SCS. After a long day of teaching kindergarten, I'll definitely be wearing my pajamas when it's time for the PJ party!  There will be games, treats, and surprises . . .
