Happy Friday!! This week's TCP Tuesday challenge at The Cat's Pajamas is a fun one from our Hipster Hostess Susan and is brought to you by the letter M! Susan's stamp/die challenge is to use any stamp (from The Cat's Pajamas of course) that begins with the letter "M" - such as mustache,mug, monkey, magic wand, muzzle (as in a bear's muzzle), music, etc. We also have to use the Pennant CutUps dies on our card somewhere.
My card has a Mussie tussie on the stamp - that's my M word! :) I used the Bloom stamp set because I just love the Bun Bun with his mussie tussie bouquet - perfect for Mother's Day don't you think?!
Now, can you tell how I've used the Pennant CutUps dies? I used the large pennant and cut several from different papers (from 2 LilyBee Designs pads, Handmade and Double Dutch). I then adhered them to my card in a sunburst pattern around where I was going to place my image (to make that easier, I lightly traced my circle on the cardstock so I could see where it would be). After everything was stuck down, I trimmed the edges flush with the card - super easy!
I added some faux stitching using a thin black marker, it just gives it a little extra oommph!
So now it's your turn - head over to Alma's blog or our TCP Forum on Splitcoaststampers for the details on TCP Tuesday. As always you could win $10 Cat Cash just for playing! Have a wonderful weekend everyone and Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!
