The Craft's Meow November Release Preview Day 2: Stitched Sentiments II

The Craft's Meow

Hello again, and welcome to the 2nd day of our November release of The Craft's Meow stamps!  Today our stamp set is called Stitched Sentiments Two, and it's exactly what it says, a second set of stitched sentiments, designed by Nina B!

For my first card, I used a flower and some leaves from the Stitched Flowers set, also by Nina, and paper-pieced them with papers from doodlebug design's Sugar & Spice collection.   I embossed my card base with a little flower folder by Sizzix.   My sentiment is just one from the new set which includes 6 other sentiments.


Here's my 2nd card, using a Christmas sentiment from the new set:


This one uses papers from Basic Grey's Aspen Frost collection, a Nesties Labels 20 die, some glittered snowflakes and a red pearl - really quick card to make!

I hope you'll visit The Craft's Meow Blog today and the rest of the week to see lots of ideas from the Design Team using this new set, plus 3 others.  While you're there, don't forget to leave a comment by 9 PM PST to win this new Stitched Sentiments 2 set!!  See you tomorrow for another preview!

Those flowers are one of my favorite sets (top of my TCM to get list), and I love how you layered/fussy cut them!
