Seas the Birthday

Well hello!  Welcome to The Cat’s Pajamas Summer Blog Hop!  We’ve had a fabulous Sneaky Peek Week with all the new sets, CutUps Dies and CutAble files.  It’s been so much fun to show it all off to you.  All the sets, CutUps dies and CutAbles are now available in The Cat’s Pajamas store.  Today we’re hopping along with The Cat Pack and friends to give you another peek at the sets.  You should have come from the lovely Wendy M’s Blog to start it all off.  

Today I’m showing off Seas the Birthday, our great new underwater themed set from our new artist, Tamara Hess.  It’s just so cute!  I decided to use one of our new CutAbles files to create this awesome Centre Step Design as an underwater ocean theme.  The CutAble files are great because they can be used if you have a cutting machine, or just downloaded as PDF and traced onto your design.  A great way to get more card styles in your design world!  

I took two of our fun little guys from the set and coloured them up with Copics, cutting them out to place on my scene.  

I created the top waves in the scene with the Wave CutUps Die to look like the white of the waves breaking, then brayered in the ocean beneath.  Next I added some ric rack seaweed into the scene for fun, and finally I added Picket Fence Distress Ink bubbles under the ocean.  

They’re just so cute and ready to celebrate the birthday! I love their funny little faces :)

If you flip open the centre step, this is what the inside looks like.  It’s sure a fun design for a card!  Below are the Copics I used. 

And here’s a peek at the set.  

Now to continue on the Hop you can head on over to the equally lovely Lisa’s blog for more of this fun hop!
