The Craft's Meow October Release Blog Hop

Please go here or scroll down to see the Polka Dot Door Hop post!

Hello again my friend!  So excited about today, because all of the sets, five of them to be exact, are now for sale over at The Craft's Meow!  You should have come by way of  Julie Ranae Murray's blog, if not, start here to find out what all of this is about!  Do you have a fav set so far?  I love them all, and had a hard time trying to decide which on to use for the blog hop today, but I settled on Jenny's set, Fall Fun and made two cards for you today.


For this card, I wanted to use the fun ladder image, propping the bird up on the top rung and another bird at the base, as if they are communicating and colored them in with Memento markers.  I impressed a frame image into the card and added some Harvest Gold buttons to accent my sentiment.


For my second card I used those cut little squirrels sharing a little nut love!  I die cut two hearts from red card stock and a banner stamped with my sweet sentiment and adhered them to my card with foam.  Now for the coloring, I went really simple with no shading and alternated the colors on them for interest.  I did stamp, color and cut out the little acorn and shaded it a bit.

I hope you've enjoyed this week's The Craft's Meow stamp previews.  Your next stop on the hop is   Lynn Miller, so stop on over to see what she has made!
