Hi there TCP Fans! It’s Christine with you today and we’ve been in a heat wave for weeks. For us that’s not so pleasant without central air conditioning, so today I’m going to COOOL it off with some of the newest August Release goodies from The Cat’s Pajamas. I have two designs today, starting with this one called All The Trimmings.
Today I’ve got a dapper snow-Santa with a teal blue-green hat and bow tie to coordinate with that shapely carrot nose. He’s surrounded with presents from the set and placed on a fun background that uses a retired swirling snow die from TCP that creates indented pattern, and some fun sponging and spritzing with sparkly Shimmer Mist.
In real life those colours from the background paper and the presents match much better than how the photo captured it. I wanted the patterned paper to look like a wrapped package and the snowman design to appear as the tag accent to the present.
Now moving to something more warm and cozy, I used the Vintage Holiday Words digi stamp to create a woodsy warm Christmas card. I printed the digi in a very pale greyscale and then used very sharpened Prismacolor Pencils to add colour to the words and pine accents. It really gives the words a cozy softness that pairs with the woodland paper from Craft Consortium.
A few die cut accents from TCP retired dies add a pop of colour to coordinate with the paper, as well as a couple of enamel dot berries.
I’ll be back on Tuesday with more from the TCP Release, but for now here’s a peek at the New Release items I used today.
I hear you with the heatwave! I spend most of the time in front of the fan. Your card is too cool, maybe it will help. ;)
