I'm thrilled to be joining several of The Craft's Meow designers in showcasing several new stamp sets being released on March 21. Today, we are showing two new stamp sets illustrated by Nina Brackett: Beautiful Spring and Mother & Father. If you've arrived on my blog from Jenny's blog you're on track for today's hop. If not, I'd encourage you to start at the beginning and enjoy the whole hop with me - I know you won't be disappointed!
My first card uses the Beautiful Spring stamp set along with our birthday sketch challenge:
You have until Saturday, March 31st to play along with our birthday sketch for a chance to win a fun prize! Check out TCM's store blog for more information on all of our challenges we'll be having during this release.

My next card uses a butterfly image from Beautiful Spring and sentiments from Mother & Father -
I stamped the butterflies in two shades of blue ink and trimmed them out. Some fun patterned paper from Echo Park added just the visual interest I was looking for without being too much.
