TCP Tuesday #373

 


It was so nice to visit autumn while I was making this card.  Two of our islands hit record high temperatures yesterday.  I am very grateful the trade winds have returned, it makes the heat a little more bearable.  The joke here (Hawaii) is you can tell it's autumn when people start wearing socks with their slippahs (that's what we call flip-flops/thongs here).

Sets from the new release, Follow Your Arrow and Simply Blessed, are just perfect for this challenge.


  • I started this card by stamping the teepee and the sweet fox from Follow Your Arrow onto Bristol paper.  The were both colored with distress reinkers.   I chose to fussy cut the images, tho you could use the free cut files provided here.  
  • A kraft A2 card blank was the base.  The sentiment from Simply Blessed was stamped on a tag cut using Portrait of Mew CutUps.  
  • A patterned paper panel was cut 4x 5.25".  The Going Round & Round CutUps was used twice to cut the scalloped circle and circle from the patterned paper and just the scalloped circle from a coordinating solid cardstock.  This was pieced together as above.
  • The hemp twine was wrapped around the patterned paper panel 3 times and the sentiment was tied to it with a bow.
  • This panel was popped up on fun foam and adhered the the kraft base as shown above (leaving room for the twine since it was a little bumpy).
  • The teepee and fox were adhered with foam tape as shown above.
  • Leaves were cut from fall colors using Simply Blessed CutUps.  There were glued on the tag and behind the images.

We would love to have you join us this month at TCP Tuesday.  Here is a rundown on the details -

  • We will announce a new challenge monthly on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and don't forget our Facebook page. 
  • To play along, just upload your project to The Cat’s Pajamas blog using the InLinkz button.
  • You don't have to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp, digi, die or Stencilz, but if you have them we would love to see them.
  • On the first day of the new challenge, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge entries and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $50. 
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!  Take good card!

Aloha,
Brenda
