Well, I've been working feverishly hard on getting all my things made for the April release from The Cat's Pajamas, trying to play catch-up from last week when I was working feverishly hard on all those darn "out-of-my-wheelhouse" art projects. So I've been feeling a little giddy and decided to go for it and be a little mischievous with today's featured Sneaky Peek from The Cat's Pajamas.
This new set is called, AYE AYE, CAPTAIN, but if you'll notice, he's got a little something different going on...That's right, he's become "The Most Interesting Bunny in the World". He has traveled the world and is a bunny rich in stories and experiences. However, to have reached that golden status, our bunny here...had to have a mustache. That's where the new MUSTACHE CutUps die set was a true lifesaver. I just glued one of the tiny ones right on. Now, doesn't he just look like he'd say, "I don't always row gently down the stream, but when I do, I part the seas." Ok, now it looks like the bunny's gonna have to get a Moses costume. Or, maybe I just need a Dos Equis.
Here's a look-see at AYE AYE, CAPTAIN and the MUSTACHE CutUps Die sets:

SUSIE Q-TIP: As ya'll probably already knew, I love mixing patterned papers. I usually max out at 3 or 4 different ones on a single card. What works for me--A large bold, a medium scale repeated pattern that's not as "loud" and another pattern that may be small to medium in scale, as long as the colors work together. When pulling out papers, don't be scared...when they are in 12x12 sheets, that's a lot of paper, and a lot going on visually. Keep in mind you will only be using small "doses" of them on your card. Tie them together with neutral solids and a punch of color in an embellishment or 2. It's a good formula. Try it.
