Whale Time

Hi All! So are you guys ready for the weekend? I know I am! Well before we get started let me share this fun The Cat's Pajamas card with you. I used the newly released A Whale of A Time set along with new TCP glitter and wave CutUps. I paper pieced the cute whale with some October Afternoon patterned paper. The waves were cut out of vellum and TCP felt from the Singing the Blues collection. I'm telling you the die cuts through this felt like butter. You get crisp edges ever time! To add some more sparkle I added TCP glitter to the wave caps. I like how it turned out. Other details include some buttons using the new TCP CutUps and some Zva Creative rhinestones to mimic splashing water. Well, that's all I have for today but I have plenty more cards to share starting Monday. Have a great weekend!

I used the super adorable tea set called Toni's Tea Set. Yup, this set was created for our Cat Pack tea lover Toni Armstrong. Isn't it cute? The patterned paper is from October Afternoon. I also used my new TCP Cut Ups in the flower and button dies. The flowers and buttons are made with the new TCP felt. I love that stuff. It will be available in six collections that are pair by color combinations. This felt is top notch! The bow is the Divine Twine in Green Apple. To complete the card I added some Zva rhinestones.
