The Craft's Meow - Day Two Previews!

Hello friends!  Welcome to day two of previews for the July release at The Craft's Meow!  Today we're previewing two new sets of a total of six that will be released on the 21st!

First up we have a wonderfully summery set designed by a new TCM designer, Mabelle R-O, called Sweet Taste of Summer.  I started off with some background papers and a journaling card from some beach-themed papers, stamped one of the sentiments from the set on the bottom and then stamped the adorable little swimmer, colored her with Copics, and adhered her to the card.   Too cute!!

The second card was made using a new set from Amy Wanford called One Scoop or Two!  How summery is this?  I have such wonderful memories of getting ice cream cones with my dad when I was little and going to watch city league softball games.  Really nice father/daughter time!  :)  For this card I stamped one of the backgrounds from Retro Foundations onto a pink card base, layered some recycled striped paper (box wrapping from my favorite cupcake store!), and then stamped the ice cream cones to match.  I finished the card with some Stickles sprinkels, a stamped tag and a twine bow.
Thanks so much for visiting today and I sure hope you like what you're seeing so far with these new sets - I've sure had fun creating with them!  Don't forget to comment on the TCM blog for a chance to win one of these sets and I'll be back tomorrow with a wonderful set from Nina Brackett!
