TCM October Previews - Christmas Blessings

Welcome back to the previews for The Crafts Meow's October release! 

The Craft's meow

It's day 2 of the previews for the new stamps being released on Monday October 21st, during The Craft's Meow New Release Blog Hop!

Today we are previewing a new set illustrated by Karen Baker called Christmas Blessings!

This set has beautiful sentiments, some that I didn't know I needed until I saw them ;^) and the images...LOVE!

I started out by stamping the star and reindeer on pattern paper from My Minds Eye Vintage Christmas pad, then I distressed and inked the edges. I punched a notebook edge along the top and added 3 heart buttons in corner. 
Isn't that sentiment perfect for these two images?  I added a button, ribbon, twine treatment to the sentiment banner. 

At the last minute I decided to add a couple cross stitches using twine to the base panel of the card. 

Don't forget to stop by The Craft's Meow Blog for a complete list of the designs sharing previews today and the links to their blogs.  
While you are there, be you leave a comment for a chance to win a Christmas Blessings set. 
   You have until 8:00 pm EST tonight to leave a comment.  

Thanks for check in with me today and I invite you to stop back tomorrow for a preview of Clare Buswell's new set!

Beautiful paper choices and embellishments that showcase the deer stamp. I like the buttons and the way you did the sentiment. Great job!

Wonderful card. I really like the way the deer peeks from the button.
