Sneaky Peek Day 2

So, how'd ya like yesterdays first TCP Sneaky peek? Cute huh? I bet you're all crawling out of your 'fur' with excitement over the new release! I just so happen to think that it's the best TCP release so far (well, since I started noticing TCP anyway;) Today I have a card to show you that I just love..not to toot my own horn or anything;) Big Bear is BACK! He's a wee bit smaller than the previous Big Bears, but that's what I love about TCP stamps... same as PJ, Big Bears size varies so you can use him on various scales for whatever your needs are!


 I thought that this set would make a sweet little baby card, so I used MME's Fine & Dandy 'True Blue' paper. I think that line has the nicest baby boy colours! Instead of stamping the 'string', I decided to use TCP's linen thread and make my own bundle of balloons. I paper-pieced the balloons and boosted them up using dimensionals (the front balloon is even a bit more popped out with 2 dimensionals). The balloons were then covered with Crystal Effects. Big Bear is coloured with copics and he is popped up as well.
I did quite a bit of zigzag machine stitching. The 'sun' is TCP's cutup die, a SU! circle punch and a MME enamel brad tied with linen thread and popped up for some more dimension. The sentiment is punched out with SU punches.



And here is the inside. I used the Coolvetica alphabet and stamped out 'baby' and added another glazed brad. Lots of room for a message to the new mom:)

Hope you enjoyed my peek! Be sure to check out the DT's samples for today as well. Alma has a list of all the Cat's participating!
