TCP New Release: Hey Gillfriend!

It’s Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat’s Pajamas!  This week we’re going to show off SO many fabulous stamps, dies and accessories, so I hope you’ve got your seatbelt on, cause we’ll be inspiring you with great stampy stuff all week long!



We’re kicking it all off with Hey Gillfriend and Porthole CutUps Dies!  I happen to love any beachy, water or ocean themed sets, and this one packs a punch!  I had a blast creating an interactive design that’s all beauty in the front and party on the inside.





On the front of the card, I created a fun underwater background using my Copic Refills on some glossy paper, allowing the colours to blend and move with the help of some drops of blender solution.  It makes such a cool effect!  Over top I added the porthole using just the outer portion of the new die and place the pretty little mermaid on the inside.  She’s coloured up with Copic markers (colours at the end of this post), and then accented with a new set of Blue Moon holeless sequins in the store. 


Now for some fun!  On the inside of the card I created an interactive scene using another of the new dies TCP will be releasing this week.  It’s called Spiral Popup, and I used it to create “seaweed” that pops up when you open the card.  I placed different little creatures from the set onto the seaweed, swimming around.  Because of the springy action of the spiral they move around when you open the card too.  It’s so cute!  


On the sea floor I’ve added some more seaweed, anemones, shells from a new By the Sea shaker confetti mix in the store, and another curly haired mermaid.  A few stamped white bubbles make it look really underwater.  Scroll through for more pictures of the inside.  




I really had fun playing around with this fun set and die!  It’s a fantastic trio of stampy goodness!



Are you ready to win?  All you need to do to be in the running for a Gift Code to the TCP Store is comment on this post! The winners will be announced on the TCP Blog tomorrow!  

Here’s a peek at the cute new products I used today.  



Pop on over to these Kitties from the Cat Pack for more inspiration with today’s Sneak Peeks!

The spirals are so fun! I like the idea of using an already colored cardstock. Leaves you more time to create your scene. :)
