A Very Bunny Sneaky Peek

Sneaky Peek Week for the November release at The Cat's Pajamas continues today with a first look at the Bunny Christmas set!  It wouldn't be a TCP release without an appearance by everyone's favorite big-eared bunny, would it?  This set is one of six brand new stamp sets and four new CutUps die sets that will be available for purchase on Tuesday, November 17.

Ho Ho Holidays card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's Pajamas
I stamped the image on a matching piece cut with my Silhouette.  Did you know that Alma offers free Cutables cut files to match stamp sets with each release?  If you didn't, be sure to add the Cutables to your cart when you check out!  I colored up the bunny and stockings with Copic markers.  To add some dimension to the image, I adhered a little bit of white flock to the bunny's hat.

The image was adhered to an olive green card base over a piece of green patterned paper.  I've had this pile of October Afternoon paper scraps on my table for a while now (probably longer than I should admit to . . .) and the green panel made for a fun background for the image.  I stamped the set's "ho ho holidays" sentiment at the left edge of a red cardstock strip.  After edging the strip with some cream trim, I adhered it to the cardfront, tucking the top edge underneath the raised image.  I accented the image with a pair of copper brads, then adhered the panel to a cream 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 Bunny Christmas 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.

Here's where to find all of the Sneaky Peeks today:
