Good morning!! It's Day 2 of Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas and today's set is sure to please! Bearing Flowers features our adorable PJ the bear and a giant sunflower . . . which leads into another one of the new CutUps dies, Sunflower Rosette! Oh my goodness the versatility of this die is going to floor you!! Be sure to check out all the peeks today to see what I mean - they are all listed on Alma's blog.
In all the Release week hubbub you may have forgotten about TCP Tuesday, but Susan's challenge this week is so fun and perfect for today since it's all about Bears!! She's challenged us to use any bear stamp from The Cat's Pajamas! So I took the challenged and used today's peeks stamp.
I just love PJ with his giant sunflower - so many great coloring and paper piecing possibilities!! It's difficult to see but I added some Glossy Effects to the sunflower center.
How about that Sunflower Rosette? LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! It's so unique, beautiful and like I said above, versatile! I used it very traditionally - I cut out 2, pleated them (the die scores them for perfect pleating!) and adhered them together. The center die also embosses the "seeds" so I filled each one with a tiny brown rhinestone. The die also has a leaf die but I used some yummy new seam binding for leaves this time, tying it at an angle.
Thanks for visiting today! Remember to visit the In It To Win It thread on Splitcoaststampers for your chance to win new release stamps each day this week!!
