TCM:: Holiday Release Blog Hop


Welcome to the The Craft's Meow Holiday Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Jinny's Blog. (For hop details and a complete link listing, please visit The Craft's Meow Blog.) I really enjoyed working with this month's release, it is gearing me up for the Christmas Holiday that is just around the corner.

The Craft's meow

I've showcased three sets from the release in today's card. To acheive the look, I started with some cream patterned paper and stamped the postage image from Holiday Poinsettia. I then layered the angel image from Christmas Blessings and stamped a sentiment from Inside Christmas. (Inside Christmas is the new free gift with $60 purchase, or it can be purchased separately.) I bordered the sentiment with one of the scroll images from that same set. To give the panel a vintage, old postcard look, I ink distressed the edges and some of the panel itself. The panel was then layered on top of some patterned paper and adhered to a cardstock base.

As usual, you will have a chance to win all five stamp sets that are being released! For a chance to win, please visit the design team members' blogs, leaving comments along the way. A winner from all comments left on one of the blogs. You have until 8:00 pm Pacific on Wednesday, October 23rd to complete the hop and leave comments.

I'll send you over to our guest designer, Kimberly Crawford, for your next stop.
