TCP Release Blog Hop plus {TCPTues152}!

Hi there!  It's Release Day at The Cat's Pajamas and we're celebrating with a Blog Hop!  If you've arrived here from the mind blowingly talented, Leigh, then you're in the right spot.  If you've just happened along you can start from the beginning at the Fabulous Julie's Blog.

Everything you've seen during Sneaky Peek Week is now available at the TCP Store!

We're also combining this hop with this week's TCP Tuesday challenge, TCPTues152!  Julie is our Hostess with the Mostess and she challenged us to make a shaped card.  The catch?  No rectangles, squares or CIRCLES!!  This was a tough challenge for me, but I came out on the other end with a card!  LOL! 



I used the just released Wet Puddle and paired the darling Audrey with a Cloud Card Template from Paper Smooches.  This, my friends, is a one layer card.  I don't do one layer cards successfully!  What do you think?

I printed the template on PTI White cardstock and cut it out with scissors.  I stamped the oval for the puddle (an old Amuse stamp) and then embossed the entire template with the Seeing Spots embossing folder.  Audrrey was colored colored with Copics, her raincoat and rainboots paper pieced with the gorgeous Emma's Shoppe papers by Crate Paper.  Some twinkles were added to the buttons on her coat.  I made her rainboots and the puddle shiny with some Ranger Glossy Accents.  Some felt clouds finish the card.


Detail shot.......

Your next stop on this hop is to the hilarious and also mind blowingly talented, Susan!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cute, cute, cute, Miss Jackie. Her wellies and the shiny puddle are perfect and love the embossed cloud. Maybe all clouds should be polka-dot, me thinks!

Julie Masse said...

Actually, I really LIKE the one layer card on this, the shape and the texture give it LOTS of great dimension. I ordered this set last night, can't WAIT until it gets here! :)

Simply beautiful. I love that you made it only one layer. The cloud shaped card is perfect for this image - Very creative!

I don't think you're allowed to say that you don't do one layer cards successfully anymore... this is darling, Jackie! LOVE that shaped card (so cute & so Kim!)

Wendy said...

I am with you, one layered is not my thing! I keep thinking it is missing something but I love this idea, a different shape and then you forget about a layer! Very sweet girl!
