TCM April Release Blog Hop!


Welcome!

Today's the day - all the new April stamp sets are now available for purchase online through The Craft's Meow store!  We are celebrating together by doing a large group blog hop and if you leave a comment along the way on the hop, you will be entered into a chance to win this month's entire release!  If you're following along the hop, you should have arrived here from Jenny's blog... if not, please consider starting at the beginning at The Craft's Meow company blog, so you won't miss out on any of today's projects!

I have two projects to share with you today.  My first one uses the sweet little butterfly images from the new Nature's Beauty stamp set along with this month's free with $50 Giddy Up stamp set.


Card Details (4.25 x 5.5)
Stamps: Giddy Up; Nature's Beauty (TCM)
Ink: Tsukeniko Versamagic

Card stock: DCWV Linen Mat stack 
Other: PTI Label 3 & fence dies; Tim Holtz hardware; Want2 Scrap rhinestones; Copper nailheads
**********


Next, is a bright birthday card that I made with Nina's new Vintage Rides.  I wanted to go with some funky bright colors for the car and thought it would be cute having some balloons tied to the trunk.  I took some liberty adding a flower to the bow but think it will still work for a boy or a girl birthday card.  I love having cards like these in my stash!
