May’s TCP Blog Hop!

We’ve had the best time showcasing all the fun and fab new goodies in our May Sneaky Peek week at The Cat’s Pajamas.  I think there was a little something great in there for everyone!  Today we’re wrapping it all up with a Blog Hop to celebrate.  You should have come from the wonderfully clean and classy creativity of Melissa’s Blog at Inked Regards.  

Today I have two cards to show you, one in cool shades and one in warm shades.  

This first design uses our new Folk Art Flowers Bundle for that adorable flower filled watering can.  I used my MISTI to makes sure I got a really solid inked impression on the blooms and can, and added a little die cut heart as accent.  I’ve placed it on a scalloped circle using TCP’s  Going Round and Round Cut Ups Die, and then inked up the sentiment with the lovely Scripted Sentiments stamp set.  I found the perfect matching paper in my stash with folksy flowers in these same hues. 

Next up is this long-necked cutie patootie!

Seriously, how cute is a giraffe carrying his bag of carrots with a neckerchief?  Adorable!  I used the new  Hay Neighbor and coordinating Farming CutUps Dies for this set.  I gave him some fun colour with Copics and then placed the carrots and his cute little self onto a base cut with TCP’s   Mailbox CutUps Die  and then accented with a sweet puffy white cloud cut with TCP’s Stitched Clouds Die.  For that pretty orange gingham paper, I cut out the bottom edge with TCP’s  Clouds and Balloons CutUps Die to mimic the shape of the spots of the giraffe and then added a little green with TCP’s  Grass Border CutUps Die.  

A few enamel dots, some twine and the sentiment pull it all together sweetly.  Here’s a peek at all the NEW MAY goodies I used today.  

It’s been so much fun to create for you!  Now you can head on over to see the ever talented Julee Tilman at Poetic Artistry.

If you get lost along the way be sure to pop back to Alma at The Cat’s Pajamas blog.  Thanks so much for your visits and comments this week!  Enjoy your shopping!
