TCM: Side by Side

Hi There!

The Craft's Meow May release previews continues on day 3 on the TCM designers' blogs today.  We've been sharing projects daily leading up to the new stamps being available for purchase on May 21st.  Today, we are showcasing one of my favorite stamp sets from this release because of how versatile it is - I think I've paired it with almost all of the other new stamp sets from this release already!  

It's called Side by Side illustrated by Karen Baker.

I used a couple of sentiments on my first, soft and feminine card.  I love all the white paired with the floral patterned papers from My Mind's Eye.  A quick embellishment with a cherry blossom flower and leaves from Wild Orchid finished off the focal heart image.

My next card is so fun with the grey gingham and yellow polka dot papers from My Mind's Eye.  Lots of white to soften along with some of the flowers and another sentiment from the Side by Side stamp set.  I colored the flower withe Copics and embellished with a tiny pearl from Want 2 Scrap.

One more card today for you - this one uses the solid image from the Wildflowers stamp set which we previewed yesterday along with some more sentiments from Side by Side.  I stamped the flowers in white ink on dark grey paper and used more of the yellow polka dot and grey gingham papers.  This time I used Black Shimmer twine and a single yellow rose for the center of the bow.

I'm happy to have several wedding/love cards for my stash as there are quite a few reasons to need them in the next few months!  Do you have lots of summer weddings coming up too?

For all the other designers' projects with today's new stamp set, please hop over to The Craft's Meow blog for the photos and links.  Leave comments there for your chance to win today's stamp set for your collection!

Well you did it again. Great cards. My very favorite is the first one. I love all the layering, paper and embellishment choices. I love the sentiments you chose, especially the "inspiration" one. Beautiful!
