The Craft's Meow - New Release Blog Hop!

Hello friends!  Today is release day at The Craft's Meow and I hope you've been enjoying the previews!  I can't wait to see what you make with these wonderful new sets!  If you're here from Jennie's blog, you're in the right spot.  If not, head over to the TCM blog to get started! 
I started off using a pre-made kraft pillow box (though you can probably find a template to make your own pretty easily online) and wrapped it with some wonderful purple baker's twine.  I stamped the label image and the sentiment from "Sweet Silhouettes" onto some white cardstock and cut it out using the labels 10 die.  I stamped the cupcake base from "Sweet Birthday" in purple into the center of the label and then stamped the frosting onto a sheet of light green patterned paper and popped it off of the label using foam squares.  I finished the label with a couple of pretty purple pearls.
In case you hadn't noticed, the color combination was inspired by this week's color story at The Play Date Cafe where TCM is the sponsor this week!  Head over there to see all of the colorful inspiration by the rest of the DT using stamps from TCM!

Thanks so much for visiting today and next up is Jessica!

Supplies:  Stamps (TCM), Box/Twine (Trendy Twine), Labels 10 Die (Spellbinders), Ink - Perfect Plum, Forest Foliage (SU!), DP - Lucky Charm collection (Dear Lizzy/AC), Pearls (Hero Arts), Foam Squares
