Sneaky Peek Week Begins

That's right, Sneaky Peek week kicks off today at The Cat's Pajamas with the first look at the latest release, coming Tuesday, November 25.  This release includes seven new stamp sets, four new CutUps die sets, and two new Cutables cut (or print and cut) files.

It's Purrrfect card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Cat's PajamasToday we're looking at the new Original Grinch set.  My card is loosely based on the current Deconstructed Sketch--I definitely took a few liberties with the layout!

Sprinkle's slightly too large sweater was paper pieced with a scrap of multicolored striped paper.  I used the CutUps Framed Up 2 dies to make the pair of layered circles behind the image.  There's lots of foam tape going on here, giving the image a bit of dimension.

I layered the finished panel on to a pair of layered panels wrapped with red baker's twine.  The top panel was machine stitched around the edge--it's been a while since I dusted off the sewing machine!  I stamped the "it's purrrfect" ssentiment on a pale pink circle and added that to the cardfront with more foam tape.  A few enamel dots add a whimsical touch to the design.

Be sure to stop by the TCP member company forum on SCS to chat with the Cat Pack and other TCP fans in our In It to Win It thread.  Each day until the release, one lucky commenter will win one of the brand new releases even before you can buy them!

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

Lori--you're here!

Finally, be sure to mark our release Pajama Party on your calendar.  We'll be partying in our member company forum on SCS on Monday, November 24 starting at 8:00 PM (EST).  I hope you'll join us for fun, games, and chatting.  I'll be there--most likely in my pajamas.  Going back to kindergarten has been exhausting and I'm ready for bed pretty early these days!
