The Craft's Meow April Blog Hop

Sunday, April 7, 2013


Welcome to The Craft's Meow April blog hop! The theme this month is 'Friendship'. I used some of my favorite TCM stamp sets on this one, Happiness Is... (because I just love flowers!), Lovely Labels 18 and Cherished.


I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Happiness Is... stamp set onto some patterned paper and added some shading to the flowers with Distress Markers.


The label from Lovely Labels 18 I stamped using VersaMagic Aegean Blue ink and inked the edges with Distress Ink. The sentiment is a combo from Happiness Is... and Cherished stamp sets.


The butterfly patterned paper is from October Afternoon (Woodland Park) and I die cut it using Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles. The little butterfly I cut out from the patterned paper. Next up on the hop is the lovely Deborah Nolan. Visit The Craft's Meow Blog for the full list of participants. Enjoy the rest of the hop and have a great day! Here are the stamp sets I used on my card today.
