TCM Preview: Life is a Carnival


Good morning!

I'm so excited about this next The Craft's Meow stamp set that we're previewing today.  It's called Life is a Carnival and is designed by Nina Brackett.  It's a HUGE stamp set filled with fun images and sentiments all about the carnival and fair!  So much fun to play with!

I used a couple of different images from the stamp set as well as the Just Sayin' stamp set to create my birthday card for today's preview.  After stamping all the images in black Versafine ink on patterned paper (my ink of choice when stamping on patterned paper because it's so crisp and black), I let it dry a bit and then did a bit of shading with my Copic markers before assembling it all together.

Contest now closed....

Now, for the fun part: Your chance to win this stamp set!  Check out all the designer's blog links on The Craft's Meow blog and leave comments along the way for your chance to be entered into the drawing to win the stamp set being showcased today!  Lisa will draw three names from all the comments entered by 10pm Pacific time tonight!  The winners will be announced on The Craft's Meow blog tomorrow night!


Have a great day!
Jessica
