Down goes the Blog


As you probably noticed I have not been keeping up with this blog.

I've been finding it really difficult to keep up with a blog, a Facebook page, a Splitcoastampers forum, Pinterest page and Twitter feed.

As a result, I've been slacking. Big Time!

So until further notice this blog is down.

You can find all things Cat's Pajamas like our TCP Tuesday Challenges on our Facebook Page and on our Splitcoaststampers Forum where you can post your cards for the challenge.

TCP Tuesday 231 and the Weekly Winner


For last Week's TCP Tuesday challenge, Jen brought us gracefully into Fall with this pretty Inspiration collage for the Inspiration Challenge.

Amy Rohl has got me thinking of warm fires after a fun day searching for just the right pumpkin. Warm lattes, stocking feet, just a great time to be inside with your family.

Nancy's  card combines the Inspiration Collage with the deconstructed sketch challenge. Love her use of textures here. She always surprises me.

Okay the word for Amy Sheffer's card has got to be stunning! Love, love, love the sweet bear and the use of the big leaf background is brilliant.


I'm nuts about Julie's card. Literally! 'Nuff said.


Then Lori's card is a simple and sweet card. The focus is the stamp and the coloring. Everything else supports it beautifully.



Now hop on over to Julie's  Blog. She is the Hostess with the Mostest for this week and your challenge is to do a shaped card! But it must be a Fall-themed shape! Think pumpkins, candy corn, apples, leaves, etc. Have fun!!

I want to see your card! Just add your entry to the inlinkz button below and join the rest of the peeps that played along with this challenge and you could win some Cat's Cash.

TCP Tuesday 230 And the Weekly Winner



Last Week's TCP Tuesday challenge was a delightful Sketch Challenge. Brought to you by none other than the fabulous Amy Sheffer. Amy is known for her wonderful scrappy designs and I love to see what she does with our stamps and dies each week.  This challenge she works her magic with this terrific sketch. Hop on over to Amy's blog and see what she did. Then come right back and check out the other Cat Packers.

Amy Rohl is missing her gal something fierce and she stamps out a super cute card that says she's missing "Ewe".

Julie's card is just bewitching. I've always loved Purple and Black as colors for Halloween. I just think it's so modern!

I don't know how Nancy does it, but she always is ahead in her stamping. Like this wonderfully funny card with Sprinkle.

Then Lori, stamps up a little magic herself. She uses orange and orange and more orange. Sounds like a lot of orange, but in Lori's hands it's just right.



Now hop on over to Jen's Blog. She is the Hostess with the Mostest for this week and she wants you to use this beautiful Fall Inspired Collage as your inspiration.

Then, Jenny makes a card with no coloring at all! Huh? That's right! The gal didn't color her card in this color challenge. But, you know Jenny. Her card is a bold and sassy as she is.
Nancy's card is right on trend with her use of Chevrons! Just love her pretty, sweet card.

Julie's card is scrappy, but clean and simple. How she accomplishes all that in one card is amazing?

Swanky Stamper for September

Yes. I know it's the middle of the month. And the Swanky Stamper is usually announced towards the beginning of the month.

I've had some requests, though, to push the choosing of the Swanky Stamper forward, to allow for those playing the end of the month challenges more time. I'm still considering that option, so this month, I thought I would try it out. So without any further ado, The Swanky Stamper of the Month is Wendy McGaffey.


Wendy Mcgaffey — Swanky Stamper for September

As a designer, I so appreciate the cleverness of a good design. Perfectly chosen paper. A well placed flower. Strong concept. Great colors. All work together to make a terrific design. Like this card by Wendy Mcgaffey. It has all of the things I mentioned and more. This card has so much going for it, if I were Wendy, I would be keeping it.
 

We had a lot of really fantastic players in the technique challenges. Like this one by Cindy Major. LOVE her use of patterns and textures. There is a lot going on in this card, but Cindy makes it all work beautifully.

This pretty, scrappy card by Cheryl Lea is another beauty. Delicate coloring. Wonderful textures, just an all-around pretty card, using our Commemorating You set and Stamp Trio CutUps Die


And Emma H. created this elegantly stunning card. White on white with just a pop of color! So sophisticated.

We had so many outstanding cards this past month. It was really hard to choose only one winner. But, congrats, Wendy! Great Job!

TCP Tuesday 224 and the Weekly Winner




Thank you for your patience, everyone. Blogger was not cooperating. But, lucky for me, I have several computer whizzes on The Cat Pack who helped me work around my issues.

For those of you who played in last week's TCP Tuesday Stamp Challenge, here is the place to put your cards. Susan was our Hostess with the Mostess and her challenge.....? Water!

Susan says:
I take care of the stamp/CutUps challenge and this week, the theme is:

Water, Water Everywhere!

Use any TCP stamp that implies water--whether liquid or frozen. (Sailing bunny, Puddle girl, Fun in the Sun, etc., even winter images/snow.) This should be super easy because there are so many! Combine your stamp choice with one of these CutUps dies:Wave Border or Snowflake
First, head on over to Susan's Blog. She has THE most darling gift bag/box for Christmas! Yes, I said Christmas! And it's just so sparkley sweeet. Take a peek.

Nancy always mixes and matches the paper on her cards to perfection! And this sweet one is no exception! Her waves really look like they are moving!

Amy's scrappy card is perfection! I don't know how she does it, but she always knows when to stop adding. All her cards are just right.

Jen's Winter card is as classic and original as Jen herself. And a little fun, of course.

Julie missed Lori's Color challenge, but decided to combine it with Susan's Water challenge with wonderful results. I love this image and her paper piecing. Is it just me that finds paper piecing so peaceful?

Lori, used the same little girl in her card, but the look is totally different. Lori has me panting with her coloring!

And Jenny's bold and happy card is just the perfect end to this challenge with her striking paper choices.

Did I say end? Actually, not the end. Just add your entry to the inlinkz button below and join the rest of the peeps that played along with this challenge and you could win some Cat's Cash.

TCP Tuesday Update

I have gotten a lot of questions about my blog lately, regarding the fact the challenges that I post are not as timely as they have been.

Many of our Design Team post on different days of the week. And, unless you follow all of them, (which you should, because they are really awesome) it's a little hard to know who is posting when.

I tried to post each day that the team would post, but that was a challenge in itself.

So, being the executive, I've made the executive decision to post a recap of the week on Mondays. A recap of the challenge with links to the Design Team members who participated in the challenge. For you, it gives you a place where you can easily find links to all the Cat Pack who played along. For me, it gives me a little extra time to fill orders, and draw.

I am sorry if it caused any confusion!

TCP 223 and the Weekly Winner


Last Week's TCP Tuesday's challenge for the week was a Color Challenge! Our Hostess with Mostess was Lori! And she challenged you to use Rose, Sunshine, and Teal in your project.

Lori says:
It’s my turn to host the TCP Tuesday challenge and I picked the colors for week's challenge with hot summer days in mind.   We’re playing with a bold and bright mix of colors combination—rose, sunshine, and teal. Feeling the heat, right?
Amy is feeling the heat with her pretty scrappy card. She uses lot's of pretty die cut shapes and the stamp is the focus of this card.

Nancy puts a twist into her card and shows that these colors are not just for Summer! They are also perfect for when the chill is in the air.

Amy puts a vintagey look into her card. Love all the different textures and the playfulness that make up this card. So pretty!

And I ADORE this sweet card by Jen! Just a wonderful mix of shapes and and patterns. And her jaunty little cloud? SWEET!

The TCP Tuesday Challenge and Weekly Winner


TCP Tuesday's challenge for the week was a Technique Challenge! And our Hostess with Mostess was Julie! Her challenge? To use Washi Tape!

What is washi tape? Washi tape is Japanese "Masking Tape". It's thin, and comes in wonderful patterns and textures and Washi Tape is HOT!!  Our challenge today is to pull out your Washi Tape stash and actually use it, on a card or project!

Julie says:
I took a quick look around and there are so many interesting and fun ways to use it!! I am definitely going to try some of the cool things I saw, but today I used it to die cut with!  By nature, washi tape is pretty thin so if you layer it on a piece of cardstock so you should be able to run it through your die cutter with no problem!

Want to see more washi tape goodness? Here is what The Cat Pack did with their washi tape.

So take a look at what Julie did with washi tape! Does it want to make you pull out your stash!

How about Nancy's pretty card? She uses washi tape as a background and the main focus is on the stamp and Nancy's wonderful coloring.

Or Amy's Scrappy Card. I must admit, that scrappy cards are really hard for me to make, but Amy's cards always make me want to try.

The beauty of washi tape is that it tends to be a little see through, as well. So when it is overlapped, it gives a whole new look. Like Jen's clean and simple card. Very simple, but very sophisticated.

And Lori's fun design. Her washi tape takes center stage.

Want to play along? Just add your entry to the inlinkz button below and you could win some Cat's Cash.

Swanky Stamper for August



One of the best things about stamping is that no cards are alike. Even when given the same template to work with, like this Sunglass template that Julie Masse created, each card was different. Like this happy, joyful card that Cyndi Bundy created. Just full of fabulousness. She has it made in the shade. Cyndi is our Swanky Stamper for August

TCP Tuesday 221 and the Weekly Winner

TCP Tuesday's challenge for this week is brought to you by the Hostess with the Mostess, Amy Sheffer. And this week it's a Sketch challenge. And here is the sketch:



Make sure you check out Amy's card. It's full of scrappy goodness that Amy does best.
And while you are at it, check out the other Amy's card. Amy mixes and matches patterned paper within an inch of this card's life. And darned if she doesn't make it look easy. (Well, easy if you are Amy, that is.)

Susan makes the sweetest journal for her daughter using this sketch, proving how versatile it really is.

Julie's Birthday card is really a delight! Love her colors and use of the Mustache CutUps!

I hope you are inspired to pull out your stamps and CutUps dies and play along using our sketch as your inspiration. Just add your card below. You could win $10 in Cat's Cash for playing.

TCP 220 Challenge and the Weekly Winner




TCP Tuesday's challenge for this week is brought to you by the Hostess with the Mostess, Susan Liles. And this week it's a stamp challenge. And here is the challenge:

Use any TCP Bear stamp. This should be super easy because there are so many! Combine your bear stamp with one of these CutUps dies:
Queen of Hearts or Apron Border

Susan has a delightful card using Quality Time as her stamp set of choice. It features not one, but two of our bears. A Momma bear or Poppa bear and a baby bear.

Amy is in a beary scary Halloween mood with her Spooky card. Drop by her blog and say "Boo"

Nancy shows off a beary special Christmas card in July. At the rate she is going, she won't have to make any cards come December. Now that is planning ahead.

And Jen's card is the perfect way to say "I love you" in a beary special way.

Julie's Birthday card was designed for her niece, but any age would love this beary cheerful card.

I adore this beary charming card by Lori. Such a simple graphic card that packs a visual wallop.

I hope you are inspired to pull out your Bear stamps and stamp a card or two. Just add your card below. You could win $10 in Cat's Cash for playing.
