Tackling the guys and sympathy...

Hey!

Welcome to Day 1 of The Craft's Meow July Release Sneaky Peeks!

The Craft's Meow

Today we're giving you a good sneaky peek of not one, but two sets!

First up is a set designed by, Elizabeta Kushner called 'Ladies and Gents'. This set will take you back in time and give your projects that gorgeous, understated elegance. I decided to create a tag for the Gents:

Just For You

Very simple but that's perfectly acceptable in my book when it comes to stamping for the guys (or should that be gents?!). I've even dared to add a sparkle to that top hat in the form of a clear gem for a bit of 'pizazz'

Next up, we're featuring a beautiful set designed by Karen Baker called 'Hope Blooms'. The set is exactly what its namesake suggests: beautiful blooms and sentiments of hope.

Sympathy

It's not only projects for guys I find difficult to create, but sympathy cards too. Yet Karen's set made me actually want to create a sympathy card! The delicate outline of the flower is suitable for more than a sympathy card too of course :)

So how about you getting a chance to win one of these sets featured today? Simply leave a comment on the TCM Blog by 9pm PST  today and two randomly selected peeps will win one of these sets - simples!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the amazing TCM DT whipped up with these sets and don't be afraid to say 'Hi' to our Guest Designer - Naomi Gong!

Before I dash - I just wanted to fill you in on why I've been slightly MIA recently.
  • It's the final week of term (I'm shattered!)
  • I have craft activities to plan and organise for the last two days of term.
  • I have general school work to complete before Friday.....!
  • I'm organising a summer school that starts next week!
  • Our Internet has decided to kaput at home :(
So at some point I'll be back properly! Thanks for you emails asking where I've been - I hope this explains my absence!

Catch ya later!

your sympathy card is so striking, clean and elegant. Those are so hard to make.

Miriam Prantner said...

Just such elegant projects. Love all the white, and I'm so glad to see that flower from Karen in real stamp and not digi form!

Maureen said...

elegant and gorgeous as ever, Duchess...just like you! Love the addition of a bit of bling for the boys...they need it too but in more subtle ways. And what a pretty sympathy card...soothing and serene and sure to comfort :) The end is in sight!! I know the craziness you feel...it's just got to be done! No carry over into next week! Hang in and thanks for the update!

Geri said...

Cute tag...and love the elegance and simplicity of the card!

Kara Lynne said...

Your tag and card both have such complete elegance. The subtle cream stripe under the ribbon and that black-line flower really capture the simplicity of a great sympathy card.

Debby said...

Wonderful Aimes! Perfectly classy and elegant :)

Lillian Child said...

Two of the hardest cards to make are masculine and sympathy ... you did an OUTSTANDING job with both of these. Black and white are so perfect and I just ADORE that top hat! Tanks for sharing!
