The Craft's Meow July 2012 Release Blog Hop

***Please scroll down for my WMSC 107 post.***


Hello again! I'm back one last time for The Craft's Meow July 2012 Release Blog Hop. You finally made it to the end! How was the release for you? See anything you like? Perhaps everything?! :) Did you just come from Jackie's blog? If you have then you're right where you should be. If not, you can start from the beginning at The Craft's Meow Blog.

Let's get right to it. I was very much inspired by a color challenge I saw over at The Play Date Cafe last week. I had no chance to join in their challenge but I still wanted to play with the colors anyway. So I used it on my card today.


I stamped the background with chevron stripes then adhere a strip of yellow patterned paper over it. I stamped a house image from Love Dwells Here on vintage cream cardstock then cut it out. I layered it over a label that I die cut.


Before I permanently adhered the yellow patterned paper, I zigzag stitched it. I also tied a ribbon around it to soften the look of the card.


I really loved this tag image in the set so I stamped it and cut it out, then added a little sentiment to it. I affixed it with some twine then added a button to finish it.


For my sentiment, I stamped this from Ladies & Gents then cut out the piece and adhered it with foam tape over the house. 


In TCM fashion, you have a chance to win ALL the stamps sets we've previewed this week. All you have to do is leave a comment on each of the blogs in the Blog Hop! Also, don't forget, TCM is giving Summer Time with Fibi and Lilly as the July gift for a minimum purchase of $50 over at the store.
