Birthday Bunnies


Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! My boys turn 9 next week and I'm really not sure how that happened so fast! It's been a whirlwind for sure! Back when I was pregnant, I picked out some adorable little JellyCat plush bunnies for them. This little bunny from the Hoppy Spring set totally reminds me of those sweet bunnies, so I knew I had to use it on their cards.

I colored the bunny up with Copics, then hand trimmed (there are coordinating dies, but mine haven't arrived quite yet).  For the background I knew I wanted to use blue and green, because those were their colors and how we kept track of them. Blue outfits for Kellan and green for Trevor, until they were about 2 years old, and Trevor just HAD to be blue, too! So I created a smooshed background with twisted citron, mowed lawn, broken china, and peacock feathers distress oxides. When it was dry, I stenciled over it using the Starry Night Stencil and some Ocean Poppy paper glaze. I finished off with a simple birthday sentiment from the Make a Wish set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful week!

Final TCP Tuesday Challenge and a Progressive Sale!


Hi friends! Before I get to my card today, there's some big news in The Cat's Pajamas world! Here's what Alma has to say...

If there’s one thing that 2020 taught us is to be versatile. With so many people shopping from home and shipping and manufacturing times uncertain, and our need to spend more time with the ones we love, The Cat’s Pajamas has decided to go digital.
This allows us to bring you digital stamps and Cutables (for your electronic cutting machine) for a low price and immediate download. This means no waiting for your order to arrive and no extra expense to cover postage. Our digital stamps will be saved at 300 dpi so you can make the stamp as big or small as you want. You can even flip them to suit your needs or turn your stamps into t-shirts or signage or whatever you can image.
And since we are going digital, we are clearing out our existing inventory in a progressive sale. Starting in March, all our stamps, dies, stencilz and embellishments will be 20% off. The month of April, the discount will deepen to 30% off and May will see a 40% off sale. If we have any inventory left, June 50% off, etc.



With that said, this will be the final TCP Tuesday challenge. This month we're challenging you to create with flowers. There are lots of goodies in the shop that fit this theme, but don't sweat it if you don't have any... all brands of stamps are welcome for TCP Tuesday. 😁 Here are the challenge details...


  • To play along, upload your design to the Inlinkz link up on The Cat’s Pajamas blog
  • The Cat’s Pajamas products are NOT required, but we do LOVE to see them!
  • Winner is announced the first Tuesday of the following month and will receive a $50 gift voucher to The Cat's Pajamas store.


Oh my goodness, I know from personal experience how hard these decisions are to make. I hope y'all will help Alma clear out her inventory so she can move forward on this journey!  I thought the sentiment "Live more, worry less" from the Live More set would be appropriate for today, as I hope this is just what Alma is able to do!  I paired it with my absolute favorite TCP floral set, Still Life Bundle. I water colored with distress inks, then paired with a couple of the many backgrounds I made in Jenn Shurkus' recent Distress Techniques for Cardmakers Class. This was an amazing class, and I would highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! For more inspiration from the TCP design team, click on over to the Cat Pack links on the sidebar to see what everyone created for the challenge! I hope you find a little time this month to play along and shop the sale!
