The Craft's Meow Release Preview Day 2


Welcome to our 2nd day of the newest Christmas releases from The Craft's Meow!  Today I have 2 more sets to show you;  they are called Winter Fibi and Lilly and Christmas Cheer, both designed by Mabelle R-O.  And Christmas Cheer will be our free gift with a $50.00 purchase this month!  Let's get started.

First up I made a little snowflake ornament using 1 of the 3 adorable images from the Winter Fibi and Lilly set.  Angel Lilly was stamped twice, once on white cardstock and again on a scrap of snowflake paper for her dress.  I added a little color to her face and paws, and glittered her wings and halo using a glue pen and some fine glitter.  I think this will really twinkle when put near a light on the Christmas tree.  

After piecing on her dress, I cut her into a circle with my Nestabilities circle die, framed it with a scalloped circle in blue, and then with 2 Nesties Fleur De Lis pendants.  (I have always thought that the pendant looks like a snowflake)  I stamped some small snowflakes in the background, added a gingham ribbon as a hanger and I was finished.  This will probably go to my little granddaughter for her tree in Texas.

Next up is my card using just a few of the images from Christmas Cheer:

I stamped a panel using the peace bird, piecing the leaf, with one of the sentiments and a snowflake/star.  That panel was framed up in red, and added to some panels from Authentique's Festive paper pad.  I added a green grosgrain stitched ribbon and some red metallic accents.

If you'd like to see more card samples using these 2 sets, please go on over to The Craft's Meow blog to see what the other DT members and our Guest Designer Emily Keaton did; don't forget to leave a comment there for a chance to win these 2 new releases!  And I'd love it if you visited me here again tomorrow to see the last 2 previews of this October release.
