Sneaky Peek Week Begins!

Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas starts today! Six brand new stamp sets, five new CutUps die sets, and two new Cutables cut files will be available for purchase on Tuesday, July 28. We're also kicking off a brand new TCP Tuesday challenge.  The theme is anything goes, so get out your TCP stamps and play along!

Hello Baby card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's Pajamas

Our peeks are starting today with a look at the new baby themed Shake, Rattle, and Roll stamp set.  I used one of the set's sweet bouncing baby bunnies to make this simple baby card based on the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch.  I rotated the orientation of the elements in the image panel to work with the image I picked.  The bunny was colored with Copic markers.  For fun details, I paper pieced the bunny's diaper and gave her a fluffy tail, courtesy of some white flock, and a girly twine bow.

I used foam tape to adhere the image to a square panel made from the same patterned paper as the bunny's diaper.  The set's "hello baby" sentiment was stamped near the top of the panel in pink pigment ink.  After matting the image panel on rose cardstock, I layered it on to a white panel, then adhered it to a rose card base.

Want to win one of the new releases before they're even available to purchase?  Of course you do!  For a chance to win the new Shake, Rattle, and Roll set, just hop along and comment on all of the participating Cat Pack member blogs and the TCP blog today.  One randomly selected winner will be posted on the TCP Facebook page tomorrow.

As always, TCP Tuesday Challenge participants have a chance to win a Cat Cash prize (with a little extra thrown in if you use TCP stamps/dies) and to be named the Swanky Stamper of the month, which earns you a slot in an upcoming TCP release blog hop along with a selection of stamps from the release!  Be sure to link up your card on the TCP blog for a chance to win.
