The Craft's Meow March 2012 Release Previews - Day 1

Hello! Welcome to Day 1 of The Craft's Meow March 2012 Release Previews! You are in for a whirlwind surprise this month! Aside from the release, TCM's design team is growing! Please help us welcome the newest members of the team.

But wait! It doesn't end there! We have special guests as well!

For Day 1 of the March previews, we are introducing 2 sets, Beautiful Spring and Mother & Father.  And since it's TCM's birthday Month, we have a sketch challenge to go along with Day 1. Here's the sketch and my cards for today's previews.

I have two cards for today, let's start with the first one. I made a card for the sketch challenge, combining both sets.

I stamped this beautiful flower from Beautiful Spring, colored it and added some glitter. I stamped it twice and layered a smaller piece over the bigger piece. 

Then I added the butterfly wings, sentiment banner and lace. 

For my second card, I used Beautiful Spring once more and made this sweet little card for my mom.

I made a little envelope from patterned paper and used a PTI die cut as the flap. Then I added the sentiment, ribbon and lace.

I stamped the butterflies and hand cut them, then adhered them in place.

I hope you enjoyed that! How are you liking Beautiful Spring and Mother & Father so far? You have a chance to win both sets over at The Craft's Meow Blog. Just leave a message, or join the challenge! Easy!

The deadline to leave those comments is 9:00pm PDT, Friday, March 23rd

The deadline for the challenge will be
9:00pm PDT, Saturday, March 31st
The rules will be posted on the TCM blog, so you can refer to them there.

Now head on to the other TCM girls' blogs. Make sure to leave them a message. We really love it when you leave messages. As for me, I'm really happy to read it when people like what I've made for them. :)

Come back tomorrow for more previews! See you then! :)
