The Craft's Meow Sneak Peak- Nature's Beauty & Travel Time

Hello, hello!  I am so glad you could join me today!  I have some fun projects to share with you using the latest stamp sets being released at The Craft's Meow for April, so prepare yourself for picture overload!  We are also welcoming two special guest designers this month, Geri Freeman and Gini Cagle, so please be sure to visit with them for more inspiration.  The first set, Nature's Beauty is a lovely one.  Check it out:

To start, I layered on some patterned paper from Studio Calico's Classic Collection Vol. 2.  I adhered the strip paper, as well as a strip of light yellow cardstock impressed with woodgrain texture.

I then took the flower image and stamped it in two shades of purple, as well as my sentiment.

I tied some twine around the card and secured it with double buttons and a bow.

Lastly, I stamped a butterfly and colored it in with some Copic markers.

The next set, called Travel Time, is oh so trendy!  Kaitlyn Ord did a fabulous job on this one and because of the travel theme, I decided to use it for a scrapbook page!

To start, I brought out the April Studio Calico Kit, City of Lights.  Love the papers in the kit, so I chose the black and teal colors for my page.

For the stamping on to the page, I decided to heat emboss the images in white to make them pop and give the page more texture.

I added paint splatters as well as layered patterned papers.  And, I couldn't forget me new fav, washi tape!

I hope that you enjoyed the projects today, and get to take a look at my other team mates work.  Leave a comment on The Craft's Meow's Blog for a chance to win these two beauties.
