Sneaking a Peek at the September TCP Release

Are you in it to win it?  That is the question!   I hope the answer is yes, because wouldn't you love the chance to win a gift certificate to The Cat's Pajamas Store?!  It is Sneaky Peek week, which means next Tuesday new items will be arriving in the TCP Store.   

Each day between now and next Tuesday, a different member of the TCP team will be sharing peeks at the new release.  My day is today and I have 3 cards for you using the 3 new stamp sets and 1 new die set.

Up first a clean and simple Christmas card that is just a wee bit non-traditional as I went with cream and black.  
Santa's beard is part of the new Christmas Cookies stamp set and the large bold sentiment at the bottom is from the Big Holiday Words stamp set.   To create the frame around the beard, I used the coordinating Beard die set.

Here is another using the Christmas Cookies set.  This time it is paired up with the Ornaments die set.

Finally, something for our latest TCP Tuesday challenge which is looking for a fall or winter holiday creation.   I went with a spooky card featuring the new Creep it Real stamp set.

Of course, when a cute bunny is involved it make it creepy cute!

Here are the challenge details:
• Each month a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
• If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
• You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
• On the day of the next challenge the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $50.

Here is a recap of all the new goodies featured on today's cards...

That's it for now!  Leave a comment here or on my IG posts (where I go by julie_elak)to be entered in the draw to win a $10.00 TCP store  Cat Cash Voucher.  If you leave a comment on both then that it twice the odds that you may win!  The winner will be announced on the TCP blog tomorrow.

Set a reminder for next Tuesday when the release hits the TCP store and the team will be back with a new release blog hop and more inspiration!
