The Craft's Meow October Release Preview Day 4: Holiday Poinsettia and Inside Christmas

The Craft's Meow

Welcome back to our final day of previews for our October release stamp sets at The Craft's Meow!  Today we are showcasing you TWO of our newest sets!  

This first one is designed by Nina B, and she calls it Holiday Poinsettia.  It has a gorgeous main image, with 6 different choices for sentiments.  Here's what I made with it:

I thought this gorgeous flower was perfect for paper-piecing, so I found some subtle tone-on-tone papers for my flower and leaves, and pieced them to my ivory background, adding some gold pearls to the flower center.  After adding my sentiment, I framed my panel with some bias-striped dp and then mounted it to my red card base.

Our 2nd set today is called Inside Christmas, and it was designed by Karen Baker to be used on the inside of our Christmas cards.   But, as you can see, it works just as nicely on the front, too.

I paired 2 of Karen's sentiments with this beautiful hand-made flower that was a gift from a treasured friend, along with a Cuttlebug Floral Oval die, a Darice embossing folder on the card base, Ranger silver super fine detail embossing powder and silver pearls.  Inside Christmas is our free set with a $60.00 purchase this month. 

Please visit The Craft's Meow Blog to see the cards that my talented teamies have made with these 2 newest sets.  While you're there, don't forget to leave a comment by 8:00 PM PDT tonight, and Lisa will draw 2 names, each of whom will win 1 of these sets!  The winners will be announced tomorrow as we unveil our new sets and begin our traditional Blog Hop!  See you then!
