A {beary} special blog hop!

It's here, The Cat's Pajamas Holiday Release blog hop! You may have arrived here from Jen's blog and if not, you can start at the very beginning with our TCP Tuesday hostess, Susan. I just can't say enough about the fantastic sets Alma has put together for this release, but of course, there's always a down side--how do you choose?! Alma has put together a Kitty Kat Pack for you, including: Give a Little, Penguin Christmas and Make Merry...easy peasy, huh?!

I'm going to show you two totally different looks using the same bear image from the set, Give A Little. The first is a gift tag personalized for baby, using another new set, Coolvetica Alpha. I spelled out "baby" with the alpha and colored my bear in shades of pink and green. The tag is outlined in cool new glass glitter from the TCP Holiday Glitzy collection, and it is divine! Because this is glass glitter, it requires a bit of staying power, so make sure you use a heavy duty adhesive, like 3M Scrapbooker's glue, or Crystal Effects.



My second feature is a Beary Merry Christmas card, paper pieced in Cosmo Cricket's Oh Joy papers. Paper piecing with a pack of coordinating paper couldn't be easier, so if you've never tried it before, Alma's images are a great place to start. I've also used the Holiday Glitzy glitter on my bear's hat and candy cane. If you look closely at the bottom portion of the card, you'll notice clear embossed snowflakes (more great stamps in this set). I really like the look of clear embossed images over patterned paper.

Now that you've had a peek at Give A Little, head on over to Leigh's blog for more delicious-ness!

What tasty tidbits you've shared! I wonder if you might also tell what copics you used to color these? I really want to make something similar to the top card for a friend who LOVEs that palette!
