TCP Tuesday 152 & Blog Hop!

Welcome to TCP Tuesday 152 (Technique Challenge) along with our new release blog hop! You may have hopped here from Jen's blog, and when you're finished, hop along to Leigh's blog. I'm sure each of these girls is sporting some serious eye candy, so don't miss out! Speaking of 'missing'...how about the "I Miss You" sentiment on my pinwheel pouch?! It's from one of the latest and greatest must-have sets from The Cat's Pajamas, Simply Said. Simply said, you really need this set...and the CutUps Pinwheels die...and The Tweetest Things...and the coordinating CutUps die called Home Sweet Home...oh, I could go on and on!

Today's TCP Tuesday Technique Challenge is to make a shaped card, so I've made a sort of 3-D card, if you will. This one wouldn't fare so well in traditional snail mail delivery mode, but what better way to tell someone you miss them than by hand delivering?! Anyway...the card is made using the CutUps Pennant, Pinwheels, Buttons & Big Scallop dies, along with two stamps from Simply Said. The pinwheels are attached to sucker sticks (I found mine at Walmart in the cake decorating/wedding section) after a brad was inserted through the pinwheel to secure all layers. The pouch was created by sewing the right and left sides of the pennant front to the scalloped felt pennant back, leaving an opening at the top, and a braid of TCP's Ivory Linen Thread is threaded through die cut buttons for a handle...clear as mud? I just may have directions for the entire project in the near future...

Enough rambling, you've got places to go, great things to see. Don't forget to hop on over to Leigh's blog now, and thanks for stopping here today!  Oh, oh...one last thing: Alma has great video tutorials on the TCP website detailing the know-how on making your very own pinwheels and rosettes!
