TCM May Release blog hop


Good morning!

Welcome to the day we've all been waiting for: all the new TCM stamps for May are now available for purchase!  The designers from The Craft's Meow are joining together for one last time this month to showcase all the new release stamp sets in honor of the big day!  If you've arrived on my blog from Jen's blog you are right on track for today's hop - if not, please consider starting over at the beginning and check out all the links along the way so you won't miss out on anything along the way!  Be sure to leave comments along the way too, so you can be entered in today's huge prize!  (more details on that on TCM's blog post!)


The Craft's Meow


My first card uses three of the new stamp sets:  Flower Garden, Retro Foundations, and Typically Teen.  I was going for a masculine feel for this card - like many of the others I've made for this release...

Card Details
Stamps: Flower Garden, Retro Foundations, Typically Teen (TCM)
Ink: Versafine black

Card stock: DCWV Natural stack
Other: Buttons; Ribbon; wild rose flower; copper stickles; Copic markers





My next card uses three sets as well: For my Dad, Grads & Dads, and Typically Teen.  I think this could be for graduation or even celebrating an accomplishment from school or work... I love that sentiment from the Typically Teen stamp set!

Card Details
Stamps: Typically Teen, For my Dad, Grads & Dad (TCM)
Ink: PTI colored; Versafine black
Card stock: Solid SU & PTI; dictionary
Other: PTI doily die; MFT label dies; buttons with shore and buttercream twines from The Twinery; copper nailheads



Next on today's hop is the amazing Annette!  Haven't she and my sweet friend Sharri done a phenomenal job as our guest designers this month!?  If you lose you way along on the hop, please pop back over to TCM for all the links!

Happy Hopping!
Jessica
