TCP Release Day Blog Hop



After a week of sneak peeks, it's finally release day and the Cat Pack is having a blog hop!  You should have arrived here from Deborah's blog (if not, you'll want to be sure and start there so you don't miss anyone). 





I couldn't stop with just one card, so you'll see two from
me today! I had fun mixing up the Conversation Hearts stamp set and the Nested Hearts CutUps in a little L-shaped corner collage design - one of my fave layouts.  See that little XOXO border above the washi tape?  It is one of the sentiment stamps that was repeatedly stamped in Smoky Slate ink.  

I've also used the Always CutUp which can be yours for FREE when you order $65 in products...or...it's also available for purchase!   

For my second card, I watercolored the background with Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries and Seedless Preserves distress inks. 




I lined up sentiments from a previously released TCP set - Words of Love - on my MISTI, then inked up with Versamark and heat embossed with Stampendous' Detail White embossing powder.  I love the subway art look that this gives!  A trio of Nested Hearts CutUps and some sequins finished it up!  I have to give credit for my design to Jennifer McGuire for inspiring me with her card and video seen HERE.

Next on the hop, you'll head on your meowy way to Wendy's blog to check out her new release creations!

I want to say a big THANK YOU to Nancy Thomas for inviting me to join the Cat Pack this month!  It's been a pleasure and I appreciate the warm welcome from everyone!

Beautiful cards!! I just ordered my MISTI & I can't wait to get it!! I really like non-traditional colors and your first card is lovely!

Deborah said...

Wanda I love both of your cards. The first one is lovely and the fact that you went with non traditional colors shows that these sets can be used all year round. Of course your second card speaks to the traditional love/Valentind card. So glad you are in the hop tfs.
