TCP Sneaky Peek Week Day 2: Roll With It!

 Hello there inky friends!  I'm back with another sneaky peek!  Today at The Cat's Pajamas we're sneakin' a peek at two new products:  Roll With It stamp set and coordinating dies as well as the Christmas Cookies dies.  I'm sharing a card featuring the fun new "Roll With It" stamp set.  As a sneaky peek, this set is available for purchase today if you want to order it early.  This set is available as a cooking BUNDLE so check it out right HERE
To create my card, I started out by using the new Birch Forest duo stencilz and several fall-like ink colors to rub the leaves onto a piece of white cardstock.  After stenciling, I traced around most of the leaves with black Staedtler pen to add some dimension to the stenciling and to coordinate with the stamped image.  After that, I stamped and colored the bunny chef.  
After adding the stamped image to the panel with foam squares, I diecut the bottom with the Eyelets border die and then attached a piece of green cardstock to the bottom edge

To finish off my card, I mounted this panel to a pumpkin colored card base and my card was finished! 
Thanks for hopping over to check out my card.  I home it inspires you to create something too.  Please check out my fellow Cat Pack teamies as they share their own inspirational works!

Sneaky Peek Week: The Cat's Pajamas...Hey Boo!

Hey there inky friends!  Today is the first day of Sneaky Peek Week with The Cat's Pajamas!  This week we're sharing some fun inspiration featuring the newest stamps, dies and goodies from The Cat's Pajamas!  We're prepping for fall and this collection pulls out all the stops!  I know you'll be ogling over all the fun designs. 

To create my Halloween card, I started out by using the new stencil called "The Neighborhood" and some Pan Pastel.  I rubbed some dark plum and brown Pan Pastel over some green cardstock to create a nighttime spooky scene.  I then used my finger and some black ink to stencil the bats and added some flicks of acrylic paint here and there.  After distressing an A2 card base with black ink and the same stencil, I attached the green background to the card and attached a kraft diecut from my stash.  
Next, I stamped the tree, sentiment and the witch images from the new "Hey Boo" stamp set using my Mysti and then colored with colored pencils, Copics and acrylic paint.  Before attaching to the oval panel, I flicked some red, black acrylic paint and water onto the panel and let it dry.  I also used some golden paste to give some shine.  
To finish off my card, I added embellishes like golden thread, bling and some tiny star stamps.
Up close and with a bend of the wrist, this card shimmers and shines!

Thanks for hopping over to check out my creation.  Remember, many of my teamies are sharing projects today and you can hop over to their blogs for some yummy inspiration.  And know...If you love this witchy set, you can purchase it today!  Just head on over to the shop today!
