The Craft's Meow February 2012 Release Blog Hop

Hi! We've finally come to the end of our previews. I hope you've enjoyed every day of it and have been inspired by the TCM design team. It's not quite over yet though, today is The Craft's Meow February 2012 Release Blog Hop

If you've just come from Iwona "Chupa" Palamountain's blog then you're in the right place. If not, head on over to The Craft's Meow Blog and start there. :) 

For the blog hop, I've combined Sew Lovely and I've Got Your Number to make my card. Let's get to it then...


I've made a sweet 16th birthday card. I wanted it feminine and yet fun at the same time. I used I've Got Your Number and made a sweet little background panel. I also used it to make the sentiment for my card. 


I stamped the B image and hand cut it, then stamped day on the label from Timeless Tags.


I stamped these button images from Sew Lovely and die cut them. Then I sewed them over some lace. Aren't they cute??? I told you they could be used for more than just vintage themed cards. 


As always, you have a chance to win prizes over at the TCM blog. All you have to do is to leave a message on EACH of the DT members' blogs. Lisa will randomly pick a winner. Here's the blog hop order for your reference. 


Before I go, there's just one more surprise I have to leave with you...we have a very special release kit from Ivana Camdzic. You can view it over at the TCM blog as well as the TCM store.

    1. @SugarGem: I used SU inks as well as VersaMagic Chalk Ink on the buttons. I find that chalk ink always goes on perfectly without much effort. With dye inks, you have to make sure you inked it well and maybe use a foam mat underneath.
