Hello friends! It has long been a dream of mine to be on a design team where I can showcase new releases and I am thrilled to be a new designer for The Craft's Meow!! March is such a special time to TCM because it is their first birthday and along with three new designers, there are two guest designers this month, Amy Kolling and Deborah Nolan! I'm so happy to be crafting along side all of you!
Without further ado, here are my samples using two new wonderful sets designed by Nina Brackett! "Beautiful Spring" is a set chock full of wonderful spring images from florals to butterflies with both outline and silhouette stamps!
I stamped one of the silhouette florals from the set in green ink at the bottom of the white panel and then stamped the large outline butterfly onto some patterned paper and then again on the white panel. As you can see in the photo below, I folded the wings upward so you could see the outline underneath. I love the look that technique gives!
I finished the card with some green micro beads for the flower centers and some sheer burgundy ribbon that complimented the patterned paper and card base.
This next card features the "Mother and Father" set, also designed by Nina Brackett! I chose to make a Father's Day card and stamped the father image once in the center of a cream panel using dark brown ink and then again multiple times using a lighter brown ink. I love how the sentiment pops! Well, I hope you enjoyed these previews today - I had such a fun time using these stamps!
Before I let you go, I wanted to tell you that there will be giveaways on The Craft's Meow blog and birthday challenges to play along with each day of the birthday festivities! Head over to the blog for all of the details! To whet your appetite, the challenge today is a sketch challenge with this beauty by Amy - Thanks so much for stopping by today and I'll see you tomorrow with more new goodies! Oh, if you haven't already, head over to my DT announdement post and leave a comment for a chance to win you choice of sets from The Craft's Meow!
