Kind Words

Thank you for all the kind words and encouragement yesterday as The Craft's Meow designers and myself introduced Inspired by Audrey, my first stamp set design with The Craft's Meow! Today we are introducing Vintage Rides, by NinaB and Owl Journaling by Jenny Suchin Designs.

The 
Craft's Meow


So I branched out and tried something new...I attempted a letterpress look for the cool and sleek vintage car but unfortunately my lack of photography skills doesn't do it justice. (Even the husband commented on how cool it looked, so you've got to trust me on this one...)


This card features just two stamps from Owl Journaling, I went a really clean and simple approached. The colors were derived from the current Embellish Color Challenge: Chevrons.


Please stop on over at The Craft's Meow Blog to find see peeks of each designer's takes and links to their blogs. You can even win the sets revealed each day- details are on the The Craft's Meow Blog!

  14. Oh my gosh Karen, the more I saw of your Audry set yesterday the more I can't wait to see the whole thing!

    Love this little car card. My brother has a 57 Chevy my dad bought for him in high school and rebuilt it. It's still his pride and joy after all of these years! This card reminds me of him! When his girls were teeny tiny they wanted to ride in the "Chebby"!!!
