The Cat's Pajama's Sneak Peek Week!

Hello my friends!
It's my day for a few Sneak Peeks of the latest products in  The Cat's Pajama's April release!  Are you ready?  Alma is helping out with our Father's Day cards - masculine cards are often serious ... see if you recognize your Dad among these guys from Welcome to the Funny Farm!


[Don't we all think 'ours' is the 'best!'  ;]
 




These next two cards use the new Asian Spring set, and Mountain dies ... they are a bit more on the serious/artistic side ... I've purposely left them without a sentiment at this time,  but wouldn't they make wonderful thinking of you, or sympathy cards?

 
The mountain dies were used to emboss the impression of Mountains onto my water color cardstock, and provided a wonderful guide for my simple landscape painting with Distress Inks.
 
 
 
 
There's even more to share!  In fact, there are four stamp sets, and three dies in the April Release! 
I cannot wait until I can share more on April 24th!
Until then, are you commenting along the Sneaks?  Could gain you $10 TCP cash!!
 
 
 Good luck ... and thanks for stopping by today!!

The first card is so cute and funny. Great job on that one. The next two are beautiful and elegant. Love how you can get so many looks when cardmaking. Great job on each, Michele!

Beautiful cards. I especially love the penguins and how you stamped them all over the card for a great background.

These are so fun! gotta love those penguins.

Linda Callahan said...

Wow you can do it all girl! Those comical penguins are delightful and then you easily shift gears and create those beautiful soft scenes!

Bobby said...

You have this Asian thing covered, Michele. And yes they would make great sympathy cards. Those penguins are a hoot and a half with their little top hats and other paraphernalia.

Deborah said...

Michele your first card is absolutely hysterical I adore the penguin wearing the monocle! I have to say my favorite penguin is the last one with the beard very clever. Switching gears your Asian water color cards are stunning! This is not your typical Asian stamp set and that's what I like about it you really did it justice. Well done tfs.

Super Stick Chick said...

Beautiful cards, Michele! Your Asian themed cards look like art work and are so pretty. And those penguins are just so funny!

Patti said...

Nice! I am still laughing over the "Welcome to the Funny Farm" sentiment. My dad used to call our family the Funny Farm! LOL I haven't heard that in years : ) and you did a BEAUTIFUL job with the Asian Spring set and Mountain dies Michele!! These really would make wonderful Sympathy and Masculine cards of which I never have enough!!

Well done friend : )

Don't you just love that there are tools out there made by artists that let those who are not feel like it? The artsy stuff is way cool and way way cool are those funny lil penguins. Fun stuff.
