It's time for TCP Tuesday and NEW STAMPS and DIEs!

Hi All! It's Release Daaaay! Which means that today is the very first day that you can purchase all the stamps and dies that you've seen Sneaky Peeked all week long.

AND that means that our FABULOUS design team AKA The Cat Pack are having a blog hop. If I am the first person you have hopped to, start at the very beginning at Jen del Muro's blog. 
If you came from Kimberly Gajewski's Blog, then you are at the very last stop. HI!

I hope you liked the peeks that you saw this week. I know I did. I just had to break out the NEW Sock It To Me set and the Heart Swirl. I just think the monkey is so much fun. And the Heart Swirl is CLASSIC. That CutUps will get a lot of use from me.

And once I got started stamping I had to use our NEW background stamp, the Heart & Lock Background. We made it in cling rubber so that you can paint on it, press it into hot UTEE, whatever! It's rubber, so it will take a lot of abuse. I just used the top of the stamp with white in. I just love the pretty border! 

And then I used the Words of Love Stamp set for the sentiment. It's just chockful of classic sentiments and words that can be stacked or used separately. This is going to be a set that gets a lot of use from me. The birds are from the Home Tweet Home CutUps. 

I hope you like the cards and the cards from the Blog Hop. You can get all the NEW Stamps and Dies on our website, today.

If you've been playing along with us for TCP Tuesday, I don't have to tell you what the challenge is. You may have done our challenge or maybe you've been stewing on in. NOW is the time to do it! You have until the end of the month to post your pretty on the inlinkz button to the right. You could win our next release!

Here is the challenge:

This one is a color challenge with a twist. It's a Neutrals Challenge. I want you to use White, &/or Cream &/or Craft &/or Black PLUS one color. Now here is the twist. I want you to limit yourself to one patterned paper and 2 layers. (The base is not a layer and neither are embellishments)

Our Cat Packer's have stamped up their cards! If you need another look, go back to Nancy's, Lori's and Susan's Blogs!

And Go Forth and Stamp!
