The Craft's Meow: Preview Day One!








Hello!

Welcome to Day One of The Craft's Meow Previews!

the craft's meow.

You're going to love the new sets for this month!

Let's get this party started, shall we?!!!

We welcome thee spectacular Naomi Gong as our July Guest Designer!



I spent some quality time with Naomi this Spring...she's definitely a whipper snapper:)

Okay, onto the previews!

First up is

Hope Blooms
{stamp illustrator:  Karen Baker}


I'm thrilled that this came out...you may have recognized it from The Craft's Meow recent Birthday Bash....

Here's how it inspired me:


Working with my clean & simple side....I wanted the bloom to steal the show....whaddya think?  Isn't the quote perfect?  Such an inspirational saying and one that would be truly appreciated by someone going through some rough patches....

Next is

{stamp illustrator:  Elizabeta Kushner}


Eli designed a fab vintagey set.  I decided to load up my card with color and goodies...


With just stamping the old-fashioned bike, I think it makes it *pop*....for those that know me, know how much I adore color....love it...can't get enough of it.

I was inspired by The Craft's Meow July Sketch:
