TCP Sneaky Peeks- DAY 4

Well I told you this would be the best TCP release yet, and I wasn't kidding people! I know there are a few fans of the boys in black and white out there, so this sets for you!
What could be cute than a penguin flying a kite I ask you? This new set is called Up, Up & Away and will be available for purchase June 27, right after the Pajama Party.

I stamped 'Larry' and coloured his kite with copics to match the MME Lime Twist DP, cut him out and mounted him on cloud dp matted with olive CS. The sun is made from the new Cutup Sunflower Rosette die (cutting only one, leaving it flat) and Divine Twine in lemon. I then punched a 1 1/4" circle from double sided sticky paper, attached one side to the die cut DP sunflower. Next I peeled off the tape to reveal the sticky side and starting on the inside of the circle, wound the twine around and around, making sure there were no gaps between the twine. You have to keep in mind how 'even' you are in regards to the amount of space left on the sticky don't want to have no tape left on one side of the circle and 1/4" on the other!

For the grass, I cut 3 squares from various green patterns in the 6x6 pad and adhered their centers to a strip of CS so that I would be able to sew them together using a zigzag machine stitch. I then cut the green strip using the Grass Cutup die, cutting a second in orange patterned dp. The gorgeous ribbon treatment is TCP's new Seam Binding and all I can say is 'Ahhhhhh'...this stuff is to die for! I have used seam binding from other companies and this is the BEST! It is really high-quality- not flimsy like others, more of a solid thread count (I know- thats for sheets but I don't know how else to describle it! lol!)...and soft! Feels like silk!! And super colours as well!

Here's the inside. I have been changing my inside sentiments up lately  and stamping them all over- I used to be pretty fussy about having them dead center, but I like this new look for me;)
