The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek Day #5

Today, I am happy to be your TCP Day 5 Designer!

This month, The Cat's Pajamas is releasing THREE new stamp sets, FOUR new CutUps dies, and TWO seasonal Cutables.  All will be available in the TCP Shop on September 12th.

Before I show you the new goodies, our TCP Tuesday Challenge is in session! 

How would you like to win a $50 gift voucher to the TCP shop?  It's as easy as this:

• Each month a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
• If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
• You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
• On the day of the next challenge the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $50.

It is starting to feel like Fall in Michigan, and I DO think of Halloween as a holiday!  That's why I'm thrilled to see the BUN dressed, and on board for Halloween in my first card, using one of the new release: "Creep it Real."

I've used the  Clouds and Balloons CutUp to give dimension to this spooky night sky. 
Now did you happen to notice the zoom in his broom?  It's a bit of magic that happens when one looks at older products with new eyes!  I've snipped just a bit of  "Heart Swirl" to give his broom some turbo-power!  Could a night sky be complete without stars?  Me thinks NOT, and these are perfectly wish-upon-able!


Next up: "Big Holiday Words" the perfect words for the holidays... even when the holidays are - you know - hectic?

"Define Good" has this harried little Bun...a set, and sentiment, I can truly get behind!
I've simply heat embossed JOY, and stuck the Bun behind his stack of gifts. HO was turned into OH - and oh have I had holiday gatherings like this - haven't you?!


"Christmas Cookies" contains stamps that are so wonderful to heat emboss... here is the beautiful Dove, clear heat-embossed on my favorite untraditional holiday color, and I perched her on a shaker card:

"Holiday Tag - Duo Dies" made such a beautiful shaker! 
a sweet friend sent me those darling snowflakes!
 

That handsome stag makes for a little more masculine card:

 
This time he was simply stamped onto another of those Duo Dies, and I added a little Bow Tie.

Okay... now for more good news... it's time to tell you that YOU can win a $10 gift voucher for a product that makes you purr ... are you... 
 
Simply leave a comment below, and on each of the designer's Sneaky Peek post, to be entered.  The winner will be announced on the TCP Blog, and Facebook, each day during the release!


Tomorrow you'll be treated to another sensational Sneaky Peek from Jessica Rone ... you can find all the week's Peeks at the TCP blog and Facebook page! 

Thanks for stopping in today... be sure to stay tuned for our release next Tuesday!

Your cards are great Michelle! I especially love the one with Bun Bun the witch!

So much awesomeness here, Michele! I love the details on the first card (the embossed and debossed clouds, the "exhaust" from the broom). The bunny peeking through the "Joy" is brilliant and I may have to CASE that! The tag shaker is a stunner - so gorgeous and elegant! Loving the bow with the twine around the middle on the last card!

You are so clever, Michele...and such an asset to the DT! Really clever designs and 'out of the box' uses for all of these fabulous stamps and dies! My fave? The swoon-worthy dove and vellum tag on your shaker card...But, I do LOVE them all!

Oh my! Your cards are adorable!!! I can't decide which one I like the best!

Linda Callahan said...

Adorable cards! The big eared bunny is one of my all time favorite stamping characters! Why don't I have one of his stamps? Think I need to fix that!

Nora N. said...

I am loving the broom card-especially the fun sentiment!! The tag card is fabulous as well. GREAT projects!!

Stacey f said...

I really love the dove! The colors are gorgeous! I would love to try to make something that beautiful. The dove calls to me anyway, I am a former hospice worker(16 years). The dove was present in our hospice home, and brought peace, calm and hope. Such a nice card, that would bring all of those things to a loved one this holiday season!

Lisa Petrella said...

Fabulous sample projects, Michele!!! I especially LOVE the one with the stag tag and the woodgrain bow with the yummy green twine!!! Wowzers!!

Cat Craig said...

It looks like your and TCP are the perfect match, Michele. You know just what to do with those stamps to make them shine.

Pam Sparks said...

Fabulous cards Michele! I keep scrolling back up to that tag!

Lisa Elton said...

Holy guacamole!! Creep it real...that is too much fun, what a cute card!!! And that bunny nose peeking through the O is such a fun idea. Your peak a boo shaker tag is beautiful and quite elegant. Then of course you know I love the polka dots with that super duper sweet woodgrain bow. Amazing work Michele, I love each and every one!

Sharron said...
