Heart to Heart Spotlight #7 - TCP

The Cat's Pajamas!
(Check out the new release Candyland Christmas---ADORABLE!)

Alma (the owner of this swanky stamp line) is a doll. I have had the pleasure of meeting her a couple of times and I can tell you that she is such a sweet and unassuming person (with a rockin' sense of humor)!

When I sent out an email to Alma asking if she would like to sponsor the Heart to Heart blog candy she wrote back "Whatever you need". She sent me a HUGE and HEAVY box of fun stuff to give away......That sums up Alma. Huge heart and great talent.

My first card features this pup (Puppy Love)--he is so cute and I just had to make a little Valentine with him.

I overlayed the swirl cut cardstock over white cardstock. I added red stickles over all the red in the stamped image (around the heart and the heart antenna and collar). I added a little silver clip at the top of the image and tied some fun ribbon to it. Isn't he adorable?

Materials used: Stamps-Puppy Love (The Cat's Pajamas); Memento Tuxedo Black ink; stampin up real red marker; red stickles (Ranger); cardstock-white, red (SU!); ribbon (Offray); hardware clip (We R Memory Keepers); Swiss die cut cardstock (Creative Imaginations); rub-on - Cherished Memories (SU!); dimensionals (SU!).

I had to make a card with one of my favorite TCP sets- It's a Mod, Mod World. Love this rocket--it is so fun to play with. So I decided to make a birthday card for a four year old boy.

For this card, I paper pieced the rocket. I used my Cuttlebug numbers embossing folder to add some texture and cut out the number 4 from an embossed piece for the tag. (I REALLY need to get some number/letter dies--any suggestions?!)

I added some punched stars to make the rocket look like it is heading into the sky.


The final touch is some rocket "smoke" which I created by cutting thin strips of designer paper and rolling them around a paint brush. Then I attached them under the rocket "thingys"?--what are they called--exhaust pipes? No clue....just like it!



Materials used: Stamps-It's a Mod, Mod World (The Cat's Pajamas); cardstock-very vanilla (SU!); Designer Paper-Zoom Collection (Crate); Cuttlebug (Provocraft); Numbers Embossing Folder (Provocraft); Fiskars Threading Water Punch; Jumbo eyelet (SU!); hemp (Hobby Lobby); dimensionals (SU!); star punch (SU!).

Alma--You Rock! Thank you so much for donating a million bajillion things to the Heart to Heart Blog candy. The drive was such a success in no small part to caring people like you. Love ya!

Coming next week: Gina K Release and some fun altered projects! Coming soon--my one year blogaversary---it's gonna be FUNTABULOUS!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

So cute! I love the TCP images, but I don't own any yet. My husband would know the actual, real term for those exhaust pipe thingies (He's a crew chief on F-16s), but that's what I call them too!
