The Craft's Meow June Release - Day 1

*** It's also my FIRST post for the WPlus9 June Release Sneak Peak -Day 1. Don't forget to check it out here.***


Hello again bloggies. I'm going to be a very, very busy little bee this weekend until June 1st. Lisa, from The Craft's Meow has another round of gorgeous stamps for everyone this month of June. For this release we have stamp sets from the extremely talented, Miss Nina Brackett. We also have a fun, fun, fun stamp set from the amazing Michelle Bertuzzi! :)


If you love flower stamp sets, you are going to fall in love with Celebrating You. Whether you're a Copic master, or a Copic newbie, or even if you don't like coloring...you are going to enjoy these images! Here's my card for today's sneak peek.



I'm not very good with flowers...even any plant for that matter. The only plant I ever tried to take care of was a cactus that died within a week after I got it. Lol! Nina informed us that these gorgeous blooms are called Fuchsia flowers. Aren't they gorgeous?! I'm pretty sure these will stick around for me for a looong time. Haha!

I kept my card pretty simple for this stamp set. The blooms did all the work actually! :) I just put together some patterned paper from Melissa Frances and Basic Grey. Then I adhered them onto my card base and stitched the edges. I used this gorgeous strip of lace to separate the top and bottom part of the card. I don't remember where I got the lace from, but I got it right as the etsy store was closing. I also added some Artisan Elements by Pink Paislee to add a little more drama to the card. :) How do you like it so far?



AND NOW, for the exciting part...PRIZES...What would new release festivities be without chances to win prizes? Yep, we'll draw THREE of you to win Celebrating You... one from each of three of the design team blogs. You'll have until 10:00 pm Pacific tonight to make the rounds and leave comments. We'll announce the winners in tomorrow's post. Enjoy and good luck!!!


Don't forget to look through our fabby list of awesome designers! They have more in store for you. :)
