TCM: Folk Art Blooms and Jar of Sunshine

Good morning!

Welcome to day 3 of The Craft's Meow August release previews!  Today's stamp sets are from one of my favorite illustrators - Nina Brackett and they are lovely, as are all things she designs.  I am so in love with the first stamp set called Folk Art Blooms.  

I stamped the flowers with a variety of Hero Arts shadow inks and then added some shading with coordinating Copic colors.  To soften everything I added some light brown chalk ink.

Nina's second new stamp set is a super sweet set called Jar of Sunshine.  The jar image coordinates with her Spellbinder Homespun die set.  I love this little jar image and the sentiments she included as well as all the embellishments for the mason jar image.  I die cut the jars with vellum and then stamped the images with black Stazon ink.  I added the lemon wedge and straw to my jar for a cup of lemonade!

My last card for today pairs the two stamp sets we are featuring today.  I die cut the jar image in vellum and stamped with Stazon ink again. Then, I die cut the jar a second time with some red polka dot patterned paper and added it behind the jar.  I added a ruffle trim from the coordinating Spellbinder set.  

I added my favorite flower image from the Folk Art Blooms and stamped in red ink and added some highlights with a dark red Copic, to make them look like red raspberries... so it could be a jar of red raspberry jam.  The leaves from the set were stamped in soft stone ink because I didn't want to add any other colors to the card - I was liking the reds, oranges, and grays.

To see all the other designer's projects with today's stamp sets, please hop over to The Craft's Meow store blog for all the photos and links.  Be sure to leave a comment there for your chance to win one the sets for yourself!

See you tomorrow with more new TCM goodness!
