TCP September Blog Hop!


Well gang it’s been so fun hanging with you all week for the September Release at The Cat’s Pajamas!  All the fabulous sets and dies are now available in the store and we’re going to show you one more round of inspiration with this month’s great products... 

You should have come from the amazing Nancy’s Blog on the Hop....



Today also kicks off another TCP Challenge.  This one is from Julie and it’s a great blend of colours to play with.    We hope you’ll join us!  

I have a friend who was just diagnosed with skin cancer.  I’m grateful that the treatment seems straightforward and everything looks very promising.  But I know from experience, those words when you’re diagnosed never feel good.  So, I’ve pulled together this little card for her as a little note of encouragement.  



The fabulous thing about this set - Survivor - is that you can customize the ribbons for any situation.  The colour for skin cancer is black...so I’m stretching it a wee bit with the gray tones - but regardless, I know she’ll get the message.  I’ve designed this awesome Twisted Easel card with the new CutAble file from Alma.  That lady is so ingenious with her designs and it was a snap to make.  I found this great paper in my stash,  MME's - Come Away with Me, that worked great with the rust tones and deep blue.  


Here’s a closeup of the colouring.  I also used the Fancy Flip Die and Fancy Flip Frames with the card, a few faceted gems, and some copper cording.  



Isn’t that a powerful message?  I love it.  It’s a wonderful stamp set!  





Here’s the Copics I used for colouring.  



Now you can head on over to one of our fabulous Swanky Stampers of the month to see what she has in store for the hop!


Thanks for the TCP fun this week!
