The Craft's Meow October Release Day 2 - Christmas Blessings


Welcome to The Craft's Meow October Release Day 2!  


The silhouette images in this set are beautiful!  The deer image from Christmas Blessings by Karen Baker, is just right for beautiful Christmas cards, but also for masculine cards throughout the year!

If you're not in the holiday spirit yet, you will be after you check out all of the gorgeous creations over at The Craft's Meow store blog!  While you're there...make sure you leave a little love!  Lisa is giving away this new set, Christmas Blessings, to one lucky commenter on store blog, so go check it out for your chance to win!    

Make sure to check in tomorrow for Day 3 of the TCM October Release...we will be featuring a fantastic new set created by Clare Buswell!


The Unscripted Sketches #226 was a great layout to showcase this serene scene!  I'm linking up to Word Art Wednesday Challenge #102 and Simon Says Stamp: Christmas/Happy Holiday!


I inked up the deer image in Momento Rich Cocoa Luxe ink and heat embossed it for a little texture and shine.  The star was inked up in Ranger Antique Linen distress ink, then detailed with a sequin.  After a bit of stitching, button, twine, and a sprinkling of sequins...here is one Christmas card ready for the mail in November!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Great tip on using the stamp for manly cards throughout the year. I like the stitching and embellishments. The sequins give it a little sparkle and shine. Great job!
