TCP Tuesday 298-Hello There!

It's Tuesday,  so of COURSE I had to get out my stamps and CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas so I could play along with the TCP Tuesday challenge!! This week's challenge is a new one, and we have your favorite challenge.....it's ANYTHING GOES!!


I decided to pair a couple of sets and a few CutUps to create this colorful, fun card. It was super fun, and quick to make, too! I used MFT cardstock in Lemon Drop, Orange Fizz, and Sour Apple, and my buttons/ribbons are from there in those colors as well. I used the Shake, Rattle & Roll set for my cutesy little bunny, and paired it with a sentiment from the Simply Stacked Sentiments set. It was stamped on the Luggage Tags CutUps. I used my favorite CutUps, the Stitched Clouds, and used the Inside Pinking CutUps along the bottom...then mostly covered it up...but you can kinda see it. 




Here are the TCP products I have used:






  • Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat's Pajama's Blog as well as on our Facebook page.
  • If you want to play along you just upload your design using the InLinkz on the TCP blog. If you want to display your pretties on Splitcoaststampers use keyword TCPTUES298. Only the entries uploaded to the Inlinkz button will be considered for Swanky Stamper at the end of the month.
  • You must have your project posted by the Monday, 12 midnight EDT before the next challenge to be eligible to win the Cat Cash.

    Seas the Inspirational Birthday

    This past week we posted the Inspiration Challenge for our two week Tuesday Challenge at The Cat's Pajamas. Our challenge this time is a super fun Inspiration Challenge, which I have included the graphic for below. I loved the fun colors, and the beach theme, and that's what I went with.


    I used the super cute new Seas The Birthday set from The Cat's Pajamas for my card. Lots of buttons were used, not only because I love them, but they make me think of water bubbles...and that's just fun, lol!

    Here is the inspiration photo:

    I'm Krafty and I Know It-Saturday Challenge

    Hey there friends, family, stampers, krafters, and lonely wanderers of the interwebs, welcome to my blog! It's time for another Saturday challenge from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  I haven't posted much lately, and I would say I was sorry, but I haven't felt well, so I have just been laying low, and feeling sorry for myself. That always makes us feel better, right? Wrong, it doesn't. Don't agree with me, it's awful. I'm my own worst enemy sometimes, but you know what...every day is a new battle, and new day to prove that I am stronger than I was yesterday because I DID get up, and try again. It may not be pretty, but I did it.

    Anywho, enough of the Dr. Phil stuff.....I am here with my challenge card....cue the triumphant horns, and angels singing.....


    Our theme is buttons and bows....ok, force me to use buttons and ribbon. I concede, stop twisting my arm. (You'd think I'd paid them to make this challenge just for me, VICTORY IS MINE). I used some MME Halloween paper, again, because, well....I haz new Halloween stamps and I like that creepy, awesome holiday. My sentiment is from Becky's fantabulous Spool-tacular Sentiments set. Oh, and I used some buttons...and made a bow....and threw in some googly eyes so it could see where it was going.


    So, here's all the going's on, and need to know stuff....cause you need to know, right??!!

    We always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!! In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card!! You can enter as many times per month as you'd like!!

    Have you joined the Kraftin Kimmie's Krafty Friends fb group??  It's the best place to keep up with all of the goings on as well as sharing YOUR creations and getting inspired by other Krafty Friends' creations!!! I hang out here sometimes, it's fun, you'll like it....join us.....you know you wanna....

    Frugal Friday specials are up NOW! Also, I believe there are still some Halloween Kard kits available but you'd better get them quick because when they're gone, they are GONE!



    Now create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp and be sure to use our THEME as a starting point for your creation!!!  You will have until August 28th at 11:55 pm EST to get your entries in!
    Pull out those fabby stamps and play along!  Have some krafty fun and join us this week!! 

    Well, stampers, that is it for me for now....have fun out there, and don't do anything I wouldn't do....which leaves the world as your oyster pretty much....except for bungee jumping, that's just crazy.
