TCM November Release Blog hop!


Welcome to The Craft's Meow November release blog hop!

If you are hopping along in order, you should have arrived here from Jenny's blog.  If not, I encourage you to start at the beginning of the hop so you won't miss out on any of the beautiful projects we've prepared with the 7 new stamp sets that are available for purchase today!

My first card uses Nina's beautiful Vintage Snowflakes.  I went clean and simple and choose to stamp the image and sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkle with detail silver embossing powder, and heat emboss.  I love that technique for Christmas cards as it just suits the season, I think!

Card Details
Stamps: Vintage Snowflakes (TCM)
Ink: Versamark
Card stock: DCWV Christmas and Winter mat stack; Stampin Up
Other: Doily; silver detail embossing powder; Spellbinder nestability dies; SU ribbon; gems



I couldn't resist playing with Jenny's Happy Hoolidays stamp set one more time.  This Santa owl is so cute!  I wish I would have let the diamond stickles dry just a bit longer before adding the Christmas red stickles as you can see in the photo the glitter glues ran just a bit. For some reason it's much more noticeable in the photo than it is in person! lol!

Card Details
Stamps: Happy Hoolidays (TCM)
Ink: Versafine black

Card stock: DCWV Christmas and Winter mat stack; Stampin Up
Other: Heart button; Spellbinder dies; Copic markers; Stampin Up border punch; liquid pearls; Twine from The Twinery; stickles; black sakura glaze pen

Next up on the hop list is Julie!  If there is a link break along the way, you can find the full list of designers in the list below as well as on The Craft's Meow blog.



Happy Hopping!  Be sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to win some fun prizes!  All the details can be found on The Craft's Meow blog!
