The Craft's Meow March Release Blog Hop



Welcome to the finale of our 2nd Birthday Celebration at The Craft's Meow!!  Today is the day that we unveil all 4 newest stamp releases at The Craft's Meow with a blog hop!  Before we get down to business, we are also announcing today the debut of our brand spankin' new Gallery at The Craft's Meow!!  Now when you see a stamp set you are interested in, you can find all kinds of card samples using it, right there in our store!  Please come visit us there!

Coming back to the Blog Hop, I hope you've enjoyed all the gorgeous creations so far from my teamies!  You should have arrived here from Julie's blog.  If you'd like to begin at the start of the Hop, just visit The Craft's Meow Blog for a listing of all of the blogs participating.  Once you get started, you will be linked to the next blog in line.  

I've made 2 cards today using the new stamp sets, so let's get started.  This first one uses stamps from Mabelle's Sweet Birthday set:


I used the balloon stamp, stamping it 3 times for each grouping and changing up the colors between green, dusty turquoise and blue.  I added one of the smaller elements from the set, and then overstamped one of the sentiments in black.  I framed my stamped panel in a paper from Lawn Fawn's Bright Side Collection.   Here's a reveal of the Sweet Birthday set - don't you just love all the fun elements - there's something for everyone! 


For my 2nd card I used Nina's Sweet Silhouette set:


All of the papers are from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Madison Avenue collection.  I added a doily, some seam binding dyed with spun sugar distress ink, and some pink pearls.  Love how this one turned out! 

An here's Sweet Silhouette, which is our free stamp with a $50.00 purchase this month:


You can now view and purchase all of the new March sets at The Craft's Meow Store!
