Holidays, TCM Stylee....


Happy Monday! Happy sneaky peeks to commence here for the October release at The Craft's Meow!
The Craft's meow

As we hit the October release, we're getting very festive (good for a procrastinator like myself!) and today we're sharing not one, but two sneaky peeks of two sets available from October 25th. We're also welcoming on board with us as a guest designer for October, Emily Keaton!

First up is Christmas Angels by Nina.B which is a set that begged me to go traditional with my seasonal stamping:


Super simple but that's my style when whipping up Christmas cards (and cards in general I guess!). I like to produce a few of the same design (not too many - I can't mass produce as my brain gets bored easily!) so it needs to be simple and it's a total bonus if it's flat for posting too *wink*

I decided to stick with the traditional combo of red and green for my next project which gives you a sneak peek of the set, Hearth and Home by Elizabeta Kushner.

happy holidays  

Tip: Add detail with a white gel pen to give the shine-factor - because your colouring's 'worth it'! :)

A simple tag that involves repeatedly stamping that cluster of holly and colouring. Not one for mass production as it took me a while to colour this little tag with my markers!

Right, that's two sets sneaky peeked - another four to go! Take a peek at the rest of the TCM DT and if you like what you see today, then be sure to leave a comment on the TCM Blog by 9pm PST tonight. One randomly selected peep will win today's sets!

Catch ya later!

Love your beautiful cards, Aimes. I'm with you on mass producing - have to change things up a bit to keep it exciting, right? Love your Christmas tag - beautifully colored and so worth the extra time!

You've really showcased your talents with these two projects, I was wondering how cool your card would come out for the Angel set and you did not disappoint, I LOVE it!

Maureen said...

LOVE that Christmas has hit the blog, Duchess! With the bit of snow we had, I'm in the Christmas mood! LOVE the CAS of the first and the green of the holly on the's reminding me of St. Patrick's Day green! LOL

Amy, thanks so much for your warm welcome! These projects are absolutely lovely. Your Noel card is simple yet elegant, and I am amazed by your coloring on that eye-catching tag. Can't wait to see your projects for the rest of the week!
