Craft’s Meow Preview Day 4!

Greetings! I’m back for our fourth day of previews of this month’s stamp set release atThe Craft’s Meow


Today’s featured sets are:


Golden Days,” September’s free gift with a $50 purchase! It’s an elegant seasonal set, perfect for making Fall and Thanksgiving cards!

and


“Good Times,” a set for all the Project Life fans out there…there are several banner/callout elements, some fun sentiments and a versatile chevron background stamp!

My first card features images and a sentiment from “Golden Days.” I created a custom background by stamping and heat embossing the leaves from the set over some marbled patterned paper. 


My first round of embossing was with clear powder; the second round was with gold detail powder. The frame for my sentiment is from the “Good Times” set.

other supplies: gold, clear and clear embossing powder, watermark ink, designer paper (Basic Grey Indian Summer), clear seam binding ribbon, cardstock.
If you’d like a chance to win these sets, all you have to do is leave a comment on The Craft’s Meow blog by 9PM Pacific Time tonight (September 20).

The Craft’s Meow Previews: Day 3

Greetings! I’m back for our third day of previews of this month’s stamp set release at The Craft’s Meow


Today’s featured sets are “Fall Blessings” and “Fall with Fibi and Lilly”…both of these super sweet sets are designed by Mabelle R-O. and are perfect for Fall and Halloween!

My first card features images and a sentiment from “Fall Blessings.” I stamped and colored a couple of the pumpkins and used foam tape to add dimension:


other supplies: card stock, patterned paper (Basic Grey Oxford), Spellbinders Labels 25, Copic markers, adhesive rhinestones, buttons, twine, foam tape, sewing machine, opaque clear marker, ink (Brilliance Graphite Black).
I originally made the first card without realizing that I didn’t make a card with the other set. So, last night, I made this card with “Fall with Fibi and Lilly.”

Since the first card had a bold look to it, I wanted to make a softer-themed card, so I stamped the main image on a parchment-looking paper with lighter ink, and used light colors of Copics to color it in. (I also used the leaf background stamp from the “Fall Blessings” set to create a little background.):


other supplies: brads, seam binding ribbon, patterned paper (Authentique), ink (SU Crumb Cake), foam tape.

If you’d like a chance to win these sets, all you have to do is leave a comment on The Craft’s Meow blog by 9PM Pacific Time tonight (September 19).

I’ll be back tomorrow with previews of TWO more new sets, one of which is the free gift that you’ll receive with a $50 purchase!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
