TCM May Release Preview - Day 2

Good morning!
Welcome to day 2 of The Craft's Meow May release previews.

I am so glad you stopped back because we are showcasing two new stamp sets today.
First up is a great stamp set called For My Dad illustrated by Michelle Bertuzzi.
This set is geared towards Dad’s but would also be perfect for any man in your life!  It has some classic images with sentiments to match.

My card uses the telephone image and matching sentiment which I heat embossed using black embossing powder. I used some scraps of pattern paper from Basic Grey’s Little Black Dress and a Ric Rac die for the strip in the center of the card.

My next card feature’s Grads and Dads illustrated by Kaitlyn Ord.
This is a great set with fun sentiments and images for graduates and Dad’s. I do not have any graduation stamps so I was thrilled to add this on to my collection.

I have a nephew that is graduating this year so I made a graduation card.
Don’t you love that graduation cap! I could not resist making the tassels out of twine for the caps.
I used my Scor Buddy to add the scored lines around the congrats sentiment. The pattern paper is from Authentique - Genuine pack and the Hat’s Off sentiment fit perfectly in the little tag on the paper.

Please make sure to check out the other designer’s projects and leave them some love J. You can find the links to their blogs and find out how to win one of stamp sets we previewed today by visiting the The Craft's Meow store blog! 

Stop back tomorrow – we are featuring another new set by Nina Brackett!
