The Cat's Pajamas Winter Release is officially available in the TCP store, and the Cat Pack and Swanky Stampers are celebrating with a blog hop. If you've been following the hop already, you should have arrived here by way of Tracy. If not, head over to Lori's blog to begin.
Since it's Tuesday, we also have a brand-new TCP Tuesday Challenge. Lori's challenge is to Go Vintage. I started with some vintage-style Parcel Tags from the City Sidewalks collection by Collage Press. The gingerbread man is TCP's new Man CutUps die. I cut him out of one of the City Sidewalks 8x8 papers, distressed him with some ink, and adorned him with some black vintage buttons. Behind him is a glittered chipboard frame from the depths of my chipboard stash, a cardboard circle, and a lace doily. At the top, I tied on some crinkled seam binding and crochet trim, then added two rusted jingle bells. The tag hanging from the gingerbread man is stamped with one of the sentiments from the new Homemade for the Holidays set. I'm soooo loving this die and set and have quite a few more gingerbread man projects in the works! This one looks so much better in real life. I wish you could see the sparkle on that chipboard!
Your next stop on the hop is one of our fabulously talented Swanky Stamper guests -- Cyndi Bundy.
