The Craft's Meow September 2012 Release Previews : Golden Days/Good Times

Hi there friends! A storm passed through NY yesterday and everyone was on tornado watch. Tornadoes in NY? I've only been here for 4 years but I've always thought that tornadoes only occur in the South and Midwest. Thankfully, our neighborhood was unaffected. I hope it wasn't so bad in other areas though.  

Anyway, let's get down to business. Welcome back to Day 4 of The Craft's Meow September 2012 Release Previews. We have two new sets for you to preview today. Golden Days by Karen Baker and Good Times by Kaitlyn Ord

The Craft's Meow

For my first card I used Golden Days. This is a wonderful fall themed stamp set perfect for the coming season. I took one of the leaf images from the set and stamped an upper and lower border image on a piece of kraft cardstock. I punched he corners with a SU corner punch. Then I adhered a strip of striped brown patterned paper in the middle.

I die cut the banner pieces and letters from patterned paper and plain cardstock. For the smaller banner pieces, I stamped more images from Golden Days on it before adhering it to the larger banner pieces. Then I layered the letters over it.

I adhered the banner using foam tape. Then ran a piece of twine through the holes that I had punched earlier. I also stamped my sentiment under the strip of patterned paper. Lastly, I tied a gold ribbon around the top part of the card. 

Onto my second card. For this one, I used Good Times. This is a wonderful set for people who not only make cards but scrapbook too! It's great for project life too! :)

I started my card with a strip of vintage cream cardstock. I stamped the chevron pattern on it and adhered it on the top of a patterned paper panel. Then I took out some of my left over scraps of patterned paper and stamped the banners on them. I hand cut them and  ran them through my sewing machine. I adhered them on the main panel side by side like so. :)

Then I die cut a doily, a circle and a scalloped circle and layered them one over the other.  I also stamped this label and a sentiment on it and attached it on top of my stack. I added the die cut felt leaves and mini wooden clips on the side.

I adhered everything over a kraft card base. 

I'm looking at the clock and it's 1:00am now. I am officially tired. :) The black tea doesn't seem to be working anymore so I'm going to finalize things here.
