The Craft's Meow January 2013 Release Previews - Day 3

Yay! It's finally the weekend. It could not come any sooner. I have more crafty time on the weekends so I'm really glad to have some time to play. I still have some DT projects that I have to finish but hopefully I'll have time just to join in on some challenges. 

Before I get to any of that, welcome back! Today is Day 3 of The Craft's Meow January 2013 Release Previews. We're introducing two sets today, Happy as a Lark and Lark Additions from Karen Baker. Lark Additions will be given out as a free gift for purchases of $50 and above.

The Craft's Meow

I made two coordinating cards for the two sets we're introducing today. First up is my Wishing You Happiness card. I stamped the flourish image from Beautiful Hymns onto the card. Then I adhered a strip of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye on the left side of the card. 

I also stamped 6 hearts in two shades of pink and die cut it into two sizes. I put the smaller one on top of the larger one and sewed it on.

 Then lastly, I stamped my sentiment on the side and rounded the edges of one side of my card. 

 I made another card and wanted it to coordinated with the first. So I used similar color tones and patterned papers.

 I adhered a big panel of patterned paper onto my card. Then I stamped the wood grain background, cut it and rounded the edges. Then I stamped the bird image and hand cut it. I adhered it on the woodgrain panel and stamped a sentiment on the bottom.

 I finished off the simple card by adding some twine and lace. I also added strips of washi tape on the side and adhered a flower over them. 

That's it for me! I'll be back with more TCM goodness tomorrow! Don't forget to check out what the other DT ladies made for you! And you'll have a chance to win this set on The Craft's Meow Store Blog. All you have to do is leave a comment!
