February TCP Tuesday 2013

Are you ready for the first TCP Tuesday Challenge of 2013?
I sure am. 

This challenge is a supply challenge. I am challenging you to bring out your existing TCP stamps and dies and use them in a new and creative way. If there is a Birthday Set, change it out so it can be used as a Holiday set, and vice verso.

If there is a TCP stamp set or die that has been challenging you so much that you haven't used it, I'm challenging you to pull it out and use it!

If you've only used our stamps and dies for cards, we are challenging you to use them in a scrapbook page, on a home decor project, to decorate a gift. Whatever. 

In this card I challenged myself to use our Heart Border die to create a rolled rose. I think they turned out pretty cute. And they were crazy easy to make. Check out the video to see just how easy.

Our dies, while they cut paper, can also cut fabric wood and acetate. The cut piece can be rolled or sewn or made into a three-dimensional project.

This challenge is to think outside of the box. I want you to use our stamps and dies in a way you might have not thought of before. Even if it's pulling out a stamp set that you've never used before. Get out your Cat's Pajamas gear and stamp!

And TCP Tuesday is now a month long challenge. Post your cards and projects on this blog to the right using the link to the right.

I hope you are inspired. Want to be more inspired?

Check out Nancy's pretty card. She put a little twist on a Holiday set.

Julie created a Sweet Valentine using an unlikely little man.

Lori pulls out the very first set she ever got, and it looks like it hasn't aged a day.

Wendy's creation has me all starry-eyed.

Want more inspiration?

Now here are the Deets.
