The Craft's Meow April 2012 Release Preview: Day 4

Hello there! Welcome back to the final day of The Craft's Meow April Previews. Not to worry though, it may be the last day for previews, but we have our blog hop tomorrow. So more inspiration for everyone! :) 

Today we're featuring Giddy Up by Nina B Designs. It's actually going to be a gift set for those who buy any TCM product over $50. So yay! :) Like all Nina B Designs stamp sets, this set is gorgeous! Wonderfully intricate and with a lot of matching sentiments. 

I came across this color combination while I was perusing my favorite blogs. It feels like my mojo has been down for weeks now. So when I feel that way, I just look at other people's beautiful work and afterwards, I feel so much better and want to get inky! :)

 For my card, I used an Ocean Tides card base and zigzag stitched a Die Cuts with a View patterned paper over it. Then I stamped my pretty horse on some Vintage Cream card stock and hand cut it. Sorry about the ink on the horse. My brown ink was down to it's final breath and my refills hadn't arrived yet. I had to squeeze the last bits of ink to make this. 

After I finished inking the edges of the horse I though that my patterned paper needed a little bit of something. So I heat embossed this beautiful doily from Simply Delightful.

I added this strip of crocheted lace that I got from a store in Etsy. I can't remember what the store's name is because it's been closed for some time now. But I usually buy several yards of lace specially if I really like it.

For my sentiment, I die cut this circle piece and stamped this beautiful frame for it. Then I stamped the sentiment inside. Again, trying to squeeze out all of the brown from my ink pad. I'm glad to report that my refills came this week and my Chocolate Chip ink is back in business! :) 

I framed my circle sentiment piece with a doily die cut from Papertrey ink. I think this might be my favorite doily die cut so far. :)

I hope you've enjoyed today's Giddy Up inspired card. Be sure to visit each of the girls on the TCM team for more Giddy Up inspired cards and creations. 

I'll see you all again tomorrow for the big blog hop! Oooh I almost forgot! Head on over to The Craft's Meow Store Blog, Lisa is giving out a Giddy Up stamp set to one lucky winner! All you have to do is leave a comment! Thanks for stopping by today! See you tomorrow. :)
