Release Day Hop & new TCP Tuesday 152!

It's TCP Tuesday AND it's Release Day at The Cat's Pajamas - one of the best days ever! :) We had a blast at the Release Party in the TCP Forum on Splitcoaststampers and now it's time to end the Release Week festivities with the Cat Pack Hop!!

I'm super excited to be the Hostess with the Mostest this week which means it's a Technique Challenge.  I challenged the Cat Pack (& you!) to Make a Shaped Card - use your imagination, find a template, use a fun die, or just freehand your idea, as long as it's not a square, rectangle or circle (unless it's a flower). 

I used The Tweetest Things for my card taking my inspiration from the adorable birdhouse that is both in the set AND one of the dies in Home Tweet Home

Cutting the birdhouse was pretty simple, the fold it at the bottom so when you open it the house comes forward.  I used 2 double ended banners die that comes as part of the Easy Rosette Cut-Ups die for the roof.  As you can see I also used the bird die (and stamp) as well as the house die (and stamp) from the Home Tweet Home Cut-Up and the Easy Rosette Cut-Up.

It's time to hop on over to Sony's blog . . prepare to be amazed!! When you finish up the hop and your shopping, remember you could win $10 in Cat Cash if you choose to play along with this week's challenge!  Check out all the deets on Alma's blog and below. Happy hopping!

1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.
2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the guestbook at ALMA'S BLOG or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keyword TCPTUES152 for this week's challenge.

5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
