The Craft's Meow Release Blog Hop

Howdy friend!  I am so glad you wandered my way!  As you are probably aware from this weeks posts, The Craft's Meow has six new stamp sets available for purchase in the store as of now!  We are celebrating with a fun blog hop today, where, by leaving comments on each designers blog, you up your chances to win all six sets!  So, you should have arrived from Lin Brandyberry's blog, if not go to TCM blog for a complete list and all the details.


For my projects today, I chose one of my fav sets, Holiday Foundations, by Karen Baker.  I also paired it with Mabelle R-O's Christmas Cheer set.  For the first card, I started with an aqua base and stamped the snowflake border stamp across the front with versamark ink.


I then die cut the Frightful Edges die from Lifestyle Crafts, to look like melting snow, and then glittered the edge with Mica Flakes (this is as close to glitter as I get folks).


Lastly, I stamped the bird, cut it out and paper-pieced the leaf, adding red rhinestones as berries.  I then stamped my sentiment repeatedly in black ink.



For my next card, I used the same combination of sets.  Starting with the multi-line image in Holiday Foundations, I stamped at a diagonal on the left side of the card base, adding the solid image in a darker green after I had stamped my sentiment.  The crooked bottom portion, is again, testament to my late hour crafting, lol!


I then stamped and cut out the ornaments from Christmas Cheer, popping those up after tying around my twine bow.



I hope you were inspired this week by the projects you've seen!  Head on over to Mabelle R-O's inspiring blog to see more fabulousness with these sets (available here) and leave her some love.  Thank you for visiting!!
