The Craft's Meow July Preview Day 3

Good morning!

I'm back with a couple more cards for today's The Craft's Meow preview day 3.  

Today we are using Nina Brackett's new stamp set called Love Dwells Here which coordinates with her Spellbinder Home Sweet Home die set.  While I don't have those dies yet, I didn't find it hard at all to use her lovely images and sentiments in this huge stamp set!  It's one of my favorites from Nina and I'm looking forward to using it a lot.  I'll have to start looking for the coordinating dies too, I think!

I used a variety of scrap patterned papers on my cards again.  I'm sorry I can't tell you the collections as I've been throwing scraps in my patterned paper basket for a long time now.I like how well the Orange Mandarin Twinery twine worked well with the reds and oranges on the first card. The orange, brown, and teal paper on the top card might be from My Mind's Eye but I'm not sure.  If you know, will you leave me a comment and let me know?  I was given some sheets of that paper and I've been hoarding it but would love to get some.  I also used it on my first card on the first day of previews on this post.

My second card was made using this month's current TCM sketch challenge.  I had to use my favorite Lil' Inker Designs mini bow die for it too... how I adore that die! lol!  This card uses October Afternoon scraps.

To view everyone else's cards for today's preview day, please be sure to hop over to The Craft's Meow blog for all the photos of the projects.

Have a great day -

love them both Jessica, but I think the second is my favourite - love the orange and brown colours, with the burst of blue as contrast.
