TCP Tuesday 304-Greetings

It's time for a new TCP Tuesday challenge at The Cat's Pajamas! This week's theme is anything goes, so it's a perfect time to pull out your TCP stamps and dies, especially if your goodies from last week's release have made their way to you . . . And, if you haven't shopped yet, don't forget that the entire store is 30% off (including the new releases) until December 1!

Greetings card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Cat's PajamasHere's a clean and simple holiday design I made using stamps and dies from the new release.  I die cut a wreath from kraft cardstock using the new CutUps Grapevine Wreath die.  After inking it with some distress inks, I adhered it to a cream cardstock panel. The "greetings" sentiment from the new Wreath Building Kit stamp set was stamped inside the wreath in gold ink, then heat embossed with gold for a nice pop. 

To dress up the wreath, I cut several poinsettias using one of the new CutUps Poinsettia dies.  I layered the ornamental poinsettia die cut over a solid vellum die cut, then curled the edges slightly before adding them to the wreath with foam tape.  The center of the poinsettia was dotted with a green crystal.  I matted the panel with gold cardstock, then adhered it to a red card base.

Ready to play along with our TCP Tuesday challenge?  I hope so!  Here are the challenge details:
  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog as well as on our Facebook page.
