Thanks so much for visiting again today! I have TWO new stamp sets to show you! They are Soaring High, by Nina Brackett, (which will be this month's free gift with a $50.00 purchase}, and Rejoice, by Kaitlin Ord Long.
I got inky with the Soaring High set, first clear stamping and white embossing the beautiful dove, then using some blue distress inks to make a background by inking an acrylic stamp with them and spritzing with water, then "stamping" the block over my embossed bird. I wiped off the excess inks, then sponged on some extra faded jeans ink to bring out the details in the stamp. To finish I overstamped the sentiment in black.
I was inspired by this wonderful sentiment in the new Rejoice set to make a rising sun design, using lots of different yellow and orange papers as my sun rays. I distressed most of the shapes with orange marmalade distress ink before gluing everything down to my yellow background.
I hope you'll visit The Craft's Meow blog to see what my team-mates and our February Guest Designer Lynn Mangan did with these lovely stamps. Leave a comment at The Craft's Meow blog by 8:00 PM PST tonight for a chance to win BOTH of these new set! And I hope you'll visit again tomorrow for the full reveal of all 5 new sets for our February release, along with a blog hop showcasing them (and a chance to win ALL FIVE new sets)!
