Sorry Sneaky Peek

Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas continues today with your first look at the new Show Me the Monkey stamp set.  This set is one of six brand new stamp sets that will be available for purchase on Tuesday, July 28, along with five new CutUps die sets and two new Cutables cut files.

Sorry Sock Monkey card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's Pajamas

Here's my card featuring the set's sock monkey image.  I used Copic markers to color the image in classic sock monkey colors, then cut it out.  It was adhered to a cream panel using foam tape.  For a whimsical touch, I added the set's balloon image in the monkey's hand.  The panel was layered on to a piece of dark brown cardstock, then adhered to a kraft card base. 

I stamped the sentiment on a large red circle, then added it to the cardfront using foam tape.  After cutting a banner strip from kraft cardstock using one of the CutUps Framed Up 2 dies, I tucked the strip underneath the right side of the sentiment.

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 Show Me the Monkey 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.

  8. I Love the Sock Monkey. It always tickles my funny bone! There are so many great sentiments and accessories in this set. All will go well with the two or three Cats PJ Sock Monkeys I already have". One is a little tiny Sock Monkey and the other is all stripes I think. They will be so much fun to create with.
