The Cat's Pajamas October New Release Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and welcome to The Cat's Pajamas October new release blog hop!!!
We have a great line up for you today, with the Kitty Kat Pack and a guests sharing creations featuring products from the new release.   

 You should have arrived here from Jessie's Blog.  If you simply wandered on over to say hi, then be sure to visit Brenda's Blog as that is where the hop starts.   After my blog, you will head on over to guest Lynn Collin's blog for more inspiration.

Up first from me is a card that has a removable ornament.   The new Scallop Duo Cut Up allows you to mix and match the inserts to create a custom design.   The outer scallop also works perfectly as a base for an ornament.

 I tried for a delicate historical feel with the paper and coloring.  To ensure the ornament is sturdy, I die cut the main outer scallop  twice, glued those together and used that as the base.
To make it easy to remove the ornament, a strip of paper was adhered to the back of the card, gluing down only the sides to allow the ribbon to slide through.   The knot in the ribbon helps hold it in place.

Here is a bonus card for the hop using another stamp from the Penguin Joy set.  I decided to go with the colors and paper used for the ornament on this one.
TCP Ingredients:  Penguin Joy Stamp Set

What a release!   Which set is your favorite?
