The Craft's Meow Release Preview Day 3


Good morning, all!  I'm back again today with the last 2 sets of Christmas stamps being released tomorrow! They are O Christmas Tree, designed by Amy Wanford, and Holiday Foundations, designed by Karen Baker.  Let's start with the O Christmas Tree set.

This large set contains 6 different patterned trees, plus many, many sentiments and some accompanying elements for the trees.  For my card I made a winter background using blue and white cardstock, stamped my sentiment, and added snowflakes to it with a Darice embossing folder.  Then, using 2 different green shades of cardstock, I stamped and cut out my trees and arranged them across my landscape.  I added a bit of glitter along the edges of the snowy hills.

Now here's my card using the Holiday Foundations set.  It is full of wonderful graphic elements and sentiments, most of them with a really unique texture built in, giving a worn look.

I decided to make this one using just kraft and red, and this made a really simple, almost masculine card, using the argyle pattern.  Love this set!

Want to see more?  Please visit The Craft's Meow blog today to see my teammate's wonderful creations using these 2 stamp sets; if you leave a comment there, you'll have a chance to win them both!  Then come back tomorrow to see all of the sets revealed, along with a blog hop!  See you there!

These cards are fabulous, Lin! I love your groups of trees on the first (in different sizes--clever!), with the glittered snow edges. And red and kraft are so fun for Christmas. That's a fabulous CAS design!!
