TCP Tuesday 179, In It to WIN It, and a SNEAKY PEEK!
Well, I'm back (again, can ya'll believe it?!) Today kicks off SNEAKY PEEK WEEK for The Cat's Pajamas, and I'm super excited about it--ya'll are going to LOVE these new toys! Seven new stamp sets and 4 new CutUps dies that are so FUN!
Along with today's sneaky peek, if ya'll didn't notice, it's Tuesday and time for another TCP Tuesday Challenge from The Cat's Pajamas! I'm ya'll's hostess this week and since this new set, ADMIT ONE, is our peek for today, I thought it would be fun to HYPE THE TYPE! Yes, the challenge for this week is to use those alphabet and sentiment stamps from The Cat's Pajamas in a unique way!
Like I mentioned, the Cat Pack is peeking this new "ticket-making" ensemble stamp set called ADMIT ONE. I'm telling ya'll--I had THE.MOST.FUN. stamping this ticket and card! Every one of the little elements on the ticket is a stamp. And even more fun? I used the new BIG TICKET CUTUPS die that coordinates with the set. I LOVE IT! I had seen *another stamp company* show how to make your own thick chipboard embellishments with dies, so I thought I'd give it a try for my ticket. I cut 3 tickets from blank chipboard (a little thicker than a cereal box--which is ideal--and they cut like buttah!). Then I glued them together with the actual ticket glued on top. Easy-peasy!
Ok, now for some business to take care of:
1. Find all the details on how to play along in this challenge on Alma's blog HERE or on our Splitcoast forum HERE.

Ready. Set. GO!!
SUSIE Q-TIP: As I was stamping this, it was super easy to line up everything (on the ticket and on the dotted patterned paper that I stamped) because I used a ledger paper and just followed the lines to get it all straight. You could also use grid paper or anything with lines on it.
A tip to the SUSIE Q-TIP: Luckily I cut the die out with the lines pretty straight. This is just the ticket.
