TCP Tuesday 126

It's Tuesday! And it's a blog hop, too. We're kicking off our 12 NEW Stamp sets and 4 NEW dies with a super TCP Tuesday Blog Hop. If you came from Sony's blog, you are at the end of the Blog Hop. But make sure you start at the Amy's blog, for the beginning of this awesome hop.

She's Mad for Plaid. She's challenging us to use plaid in our designs. Since I went to Catholic School, I wore plaid from 1st through High School. For years, I refused to wear plaid and the sight of it made me cringe. Needless to say, many, many years have gone by and I've embraced the plaid. Here is my take on the challenge.

Yes, I totally love the new pennant die. You get 4 dies in the package. Two big ones, and two small ones. Here I've made a Halloween Banner using our newest Halloween/Fall stamps. Can you see this?

Here is a close up of the letters.

I used "Babydoll" to stamp the word "Spooky". This is, by far, my most favorite Alphabet.

Then I used "Mwah", Little Devil, Witchy, and Who's This to stamp out the characters.

Added bats punched from a Marvy Punch.

Colored with Gamsol and Colored Pencil.

The finishing touch? Spiderwebs, of course. I love this project so much I'm going to be teaching it at tradeshow in Orlando to Stamp and Scrapbook stores.

Want to play along?

Oh, so sorry - just going back through the challenges and just noticed this one says TCP stamp is required...not always... so I guess I didn't read well enough! Please remove mine then.
