The Craft's Meow January New Release Blog Hop

The Craft's Meow

Today is the day that our new January stamps are being released at The Craft's Meow, and it's our custom for the Design Team to have a Blog Hop using all of the new stamps!   You should have arrived here from      Karen's blog.  I made 2 cards for you today.



My card uses one of  Nina B's Beautiful Hymns, backed by some repeated stamping of a motif from the older Lovely Ovals set.  All I needed to add were the paper roses and a grosgrain ribbon.

                 Lovely Ovals

And my 2nd card is full of hearts:


This one uses woodgrain hearts from Karen Baker's Lark Additions set, which is our free set this month with a $50.00 purchase, and the sentiment is from Many Thanks.  I love how the hearts also give an impression of a forest of birch trees.  I think this would be a good card to send to a man.

     


You can now view and purchase the new January sets at The Craft's Meow Store!  Your next stop is at Lindsay's blog.  Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop, because we're giving away all FIVE new sets to one lucky person!  You'll have until 9 PM PDT, Wednesday, Jan. 23rd to leave a comment at each blog to be eligible for the prize.  If you happen to get lost along the way, just go to The Craft's Meow Blog for a list of all the blogs participating and to see all 5 new sets revealed.

Hi Lin, found you on pinterest for buttons I think & was so thrilled to see you quilt & make cards! (I have worked in fabric stores for a long time & I sold stamps when I had a candy making store 25 years ago. The best part is, I hear your heart through what I've seen. I believe that in Blessing others, we bless ourselves.
Sew Grateful--your Soul Sister,
