Hi there! It's that time again! Welcome to The Craft's Meow May 2012 Release Previews!!! We have wonderful stamp sets in store for you this month! So stay tuned and make sure you stop by every day until May 21 for a preview of the stamps to be released this month.
It's going to be an exciting week! Please help us welcome our May guest designers, Annette Allen and Sharri Seffens!
Let's get started! Today we're introducing Flower Garden from the amazing Nina Brackett. This is an amazing mix and match set that you are absolutely going to love! I know we all probably have several flower sets already...but a girl can never have too many!!! :)
So here's my project for today's previews. These were my favorite blooms in the set. I stamped them in different shades of blue-green for my background. Then I heat embossed this gorgeous image from Sent With Love to make the bottom panel of my card. I zigzag stitched it onto my main background panel.
I die cut an oval vintage cream cardstock and stamped my sentiment on it. It's also from Sent With Love. I matted that with another die cut label from Spellbinders. I added the pearls for a little bling. The butterfly is a punch from Martha Stewart Crafts.
After I finished the top part of my card, I thought that something was missing on top. It seemed like I left a lot of space there. So I took my punch from Martha Stewart and added the lace edge to my patterned paper. Almost all the patterned papers used are from My Mind's Eye.
You have a chance to win Flower Garden! All you have to do is leave a comment on The Craft's Meow Blog! Easy! Peasy! Make sure to check out what the other TCM girls and guest designers made for you!
