August TCP Tuesday Challenge

It's the first Tuesday of the Month! Which mean that it's TCP Tuesday! That means it's challenge day!

Last month was Tag You're It. 

This one is a Long, Tall, Challenge.

We tend to make the same size card. 4.25" x 5.25" or sometimes we get daring a do a square card or a bigger card.

Problem with these cards is that we have to buy special envies for the cards. Or for the square cards, we have to pay extra postage.

This challenge celebrates that under-used envelope, the long, tall one. The legal sized one. The Number Nine.

So, the challenge is to create a card that fits in the Long, Tall, Envelope. There are special challenges that come along with making a card this Long and Tall. The biggest one is it's shape. We aren't used to creating a card that is this long and skinny. What do you do with all that extra space.

The answer is, you use it. Take advantage of the long, flowing space, like I did here using my Waves CutUps and the Ship Happens stamp set. The little note is cut using the Toppers CutUps. The card was perfect for layers of waves and a cupful of sweet penguins floating away.

Lori Tecler brings in another penguin with her card. She paper pieces the kite from the Up, Up and Away set. It's just darling!

Kimberly also stamped up to this challenge. Check her out. She never disappoints.

Now, I want to see what you stamp up!
