For the dads...


Yay for Friday! Yay for the weekend! Yay for Day 2 of the TCM May Release countdown!

Ready for a sneaky peek of yet another set? How about two new sets? Yup, today we're giving you a peek of two sets available from May 21st. Today's sets focus on the Dads and Grads - it's coming to that time of year to celebrate 'em!

'For my Dad' is a fabulous set designed by Michelle Bertuzzi and will cater for many of the guys in your family (and let's admit it, we've all struggled with a guy card, right?!) For my card I couldn't resist the image of the glasses resting on the books:


I masked a sentiment from the same set to give me the simple sentiment, 'DAD' meaning that this card could be for Father's Day or a birthday or even just a note card!

You can't see on my pic, but I added a nice dollop of Glossy Accents to the glasses - they look pretty cool but you'll have to take my word for it!

The next set we're featuring today is 'Grads and Dads' by Kaitlyn Ord and it has some fabulous graphic-style images. I immediately knew that I wanted to ink up the tie and play:


Pretty simple, but I wanted to keep the tie the main focal point. To add a little more interest, I created a collar around the tie with strips of paper.

So there you have it! A sneaky peek of two more fabulous sets to be released on May 21st. Be sure to check out the rest of the super duper TCM DT who will be giving you some more sneaky peeks of these sets today. Oh and if you fancy winning one of these sets yourself, be sure to pop across to the TCM Blog and leave a comment!

I'll be back tomorrow giving you another sneaky peek of another new TCM set up for release this month!

Catch ya later!

I love a good 'mask' job. It makes all our stamps more versatile when we can use part of the sentiment. Thanks for the reminder!
