Define Good




The Cat's Pajamas released some new stamp sets and Cut-Ups dies tonight at their release party on Splitcoaststampers. Being the lucky retailer that I am, I already had some of the new stamps and dies in my possession a week ago, so I decided to get this new "Define Good" stamp set inky tonight and also to put the new dies to a work-out!

I used the TCP Tuesday challenge from last week for this card. The challenge was to be inspired by the chair posted on the TCP blog, and when I looked at the pattern on the chair I immediately thought of this green designer paper with the dots all over it from the Basic Grey "Jovial" collection. I guess a lot of the paper got covered up by embellishments and such, but you can still see some of it! :) The layout for my card comes from Jen's Sketch for You to Try from this past Saturday. I colored this cute image with Copic markers, as usual!
I decided to try cutting my Cut-Ups snowflake out with white felt, and with a few extra shims of cardstock, it cut beautifully! (Is that not the neatest snowflake die you've ever seen?) I added some dribbles of glue here and there on the snowflake then sprinkled on some Diamond Dust glitter for sparkle. I used some of the TCP "Divine Twine" to secure my button to the snowflake, too. Another new Cut-Ups die is seen hiding behind the snowflake... that's the new Icing die and it makes me want to devour a box of Hostess cupcakes every time I see it! A few other finishing details include using my Sentiment Flag die from Lil' Inker Designs for the sentiment, and some Polar White Flower Soft to dress up my bunnies Santa hat!

Oooh, it's so much fun to have new products to play with! I hope you like my card! Thanks for stopping by!
