*H J*Y!! Another Sneaky Peek
Well, I'm back today with another Sneaky Peek at one of my favorite sets from this Merry Winter Release from The Cat's Pajamas. Take a look!
The stamp set is called J*lly H*liday. Yep, ya'll read that right...the little asterisks fill in where the "O's" should be. That's because that clever Alma has been up to her usual clever self and created this stamp set with fun little winter icons to use as the "O-fillers"!
I decided to use the Stamp Trio CutUps die as a backdrop for the "J*Y" stamp from the new set. I actually had to mask off each letter in order lengthen the word and center them in each stamp section, but it wasn't hard at all. I then colored the peppermint and punched it out with a circle punch and popped it up on top of a heart frame from the Heart Trio CutUps die. "O" and see the little twine? That's some of the new Christmas baker's twine also coming TONIGHT from The Cat's Pajamas after the Pajama Party right HERE on SCS---I LOVE IT!
Ok, remember I mentioned yesterday in THIS post about the Anywhere Ribbon Slide CutUps die and that I would show ya'll something way fun with it today? Check out the candy cane stripes ribbon background I made! I just started somewhere in the middle of that white card front, placed the die diagonally and cut. Then I just staggered the die for each row and cut again and again. Weaving the ribbon through was so easy and didn't take much time at all! Basket-weaving anyone?
Be sure and check out more inspiration and peeks by heading to Alma's blog, Dancing in Pajamas today and every day through next Tuesday to see what else is new and FABULOUS!!
Don't forget to visit us in the TCP forum on Splitcoast HERE. All you have to do is comment there to be IN IT TO WIN IT and you could win this stamp set!
SUSIE Q-TIP: Once I had all the ribbon woven through the card front, I just folded the ends over to the backside and taped it all down. Scotch Tape is your friend. Or as Buzz Lightyear calls it, "Multi-directional bonding strip".
