Swanky Stamper of the Month

It was another hard month over here at The Cat's Pajamas. Hard, because we had soooo many really stand out cards to choose from to award the coveted title of Swanky Stamper of the Month.

Take a look at some of the awesome entries that came in to meet the TCP Tuesday Challenges.

Noelle McAdams did this card for the Technique/Supply challenge. The challenge was to use ribbon in a different way. No BOWS! Don't you just love this? Such a pretty, girly card, and perfect with one of the bunnies from our Tutu Much set. I love the ruffles the ribbon make at the bottom of the card. Like petticoats peeking out from under a skirt.

Nancy Thomas created this card for the same challenge. She used ribbons as the rays of the sun. And the whale from our Whale of a Time set looks pretty happy jumping around in all that water created from our Wave CutUps Die. Such a sweet card, and such a different way to use ribbon.

And here is another other card for the same challenge that just blew me away. Lori Tecler used the Whale of a Time set for this card and even gives a how-to on creating that awesome wave that spills out onto the rest of her card.

Jodi Collins stamped up this pretty little card for the Color Challenge. The challenge asked you to use the colors, Black, red, kraft or white and yellow. Jodi used one of our newest sets Got Love and when I saw this card I said the exact same thing. "Hello Gorgeous"

And then there is this stunning card by Jenny Peterson for the Color Challenge. She uses our Pennant Cutups, our Inside Pinking CutUps and our Big Scallop CutUps , AND the Bear, from our Big Bear set. I just LOVE this card.

And, did I mention that she did the inside, too?

Such a beauty of a card. I know I'm going to be casing this card, for sure.

And then, Chris Veneruso dances into my heart with this stunner. She uses It had to be Mew to dazzle us with her entry for the Stamp Challenge. The challenge was to use any stamp with "love" or "heart". And I fell in love with her paper choice and that ruffled ribbon.

Such a tough decision, you see, to pick just one. But, I knew it had to be done.

Jenny Peterson — Swanky Stamper of the Month for February.

This was Jenny's entry for the Stamp Challenge. She uses Like You A Latte for the sentiment and her main image. I love that she scattered various sizes hearts and stitched them in that drapey way. I love the papers she chose and the raincoat on that little fella. And the hair. Wow that hair is to die for. But I think I love that covered button with the Divine Twine the most. Right now, that is. There is lots to love about this card, and I love each and every bit of it.

Thanks for featuring my card. It's such a thrill to see up there.
I loved that ribbon on the heart, gotta go leave some love on her blog. All the cards you featured are gorgeous.
And Amy's pencil case is a really great project. I gotta make one of them.
