TCP Tuesday New Release Blog Hop....

Hi there and welcome to the The Cat's Pajamas new release blog hop!  If you've arrived here Leigh's blog, then you're in the right place.  If you've just happened along then head to Sony's blog to start from the beginning!

Tonight is the night when all of the fantastic sets you've seen peeked this week from me and my fellow Cat Pack girls are now available!  There are EIGHT brand new (and ADORABLE) sets plus two new awesome dies! 

Not only are we celebrating the release with a hop, but it's also TCP Tuesday and that means a new challenge!  Sony is our Hipster Hostess with the Mostess and she has given us a color challenge:



And here is my card!  Fun, fun colors!!  I used the new set, It Had To Be Mew!  Isn't Sprinkle so swanky in that top hat? 

So here are the details:  Sprinkle was stamped in Black Color Box Pigment Ink.  I love this ink when stamping solid images that need to be black, but it takes some time to dry and you need to be careful when coloring with Copics, because it can bleed.  The dp is Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934.  Her hat was paper pieced with one of the patterns in the pad.  I added some adhesive gems to her collar.  She was cut out and popped up for dimension.  Those awesome felt hearts were made with the new Heart Trio Cutups Die and felt from the Seeing Red Collection.  Some machine stitching and a Black Licorice Divine Twine threaded button finish it off!

Your next stop on this release hop is Susan!

Thanks for stopping by!
