The Craft's Meow Preview Day 1



Wow - it's time for previews for The Craft's Meow's newest range of stamps designed by the uber talented Nina Brackett - these stamps will be debuting instore on May 1st (Pacific time). I have been totally awestruck by what the DT gals have done with these stamps - Lisa has gathered a truly amazing group of crafters and I am so honoured to be a small part of it.

Before we get started, I want to give you an overview of what to expect over the next few days. ;)

A release this exciting needs LOTS of prizes to celebrate, and LOTS of prizes are what we have for you! Each day of previews there will be not one, not two, but THREE prizes up for grabs!!! Today's prize offerings are:

* Simply Delightful Stamp Set (being showcased today)
* A My Mind's Eye Hazel 6 x 6 paper pad from the Stella & Rose collection
* A My Mind's Eye Gertie 6 x 6 paper pad from the Stella & Rose collection

The prizes will be awarded based on random drawing from the comments left on THREE of the Team blogs listed below! You won't know whose blog has the prize... neither do we until Lisa draw from a hat...so you'll want to leave a comment on each blog for more chances to win. But please play fair... only ONE comment per blog!

You have until 11:00 pm Pacific tonight (April 28th) - (that's 4pm on the 29th for me here in Melbourne) - to make the rounds! The winners will be announced in the Preview Day 2 post over at our blog HERE.

And if you want a chance to win the ENTIRE May release all you have to do is "LIKE" our facebook page - Lisa is giving away one full set per 100 followers!!! You can find the link on our blog sidebar HERE.

Today's preview set is called Simply Delightful and I've used the main stamp from the set to create a "stained glass" centrepiece. Some texture with the embossing, doily, ribbon and cameo button set it off. I had soo much fun colouring this in - you know I LOVE to colour - and it's really NOT as hard as it seems if you start with the lightest of the colours in a group and then progress up too the smaller, darker areas.

So off you go! Enjoy your first looks at Simply Delightful!!!

Geez Debbie, the first thing that struck me about this is that it looked like a stained glass window. It is simply stunning as is the cameo. Don't think I have ever seen a cameo on a card before!! The dry embossing just ups it a bit more. Magical card. ooxx
