One of two sneaky peeks....


Ready for day 2 of the October release sneaky peeks from The Craft's Meow? I hope so!
The Craft's meow

Now today we're sharing peeks of two more sets, but you'll only see one on my blogeroo today. Mr Postman is yet to bring the set, Winter Fibi and Lilly by Mabelle R-O, but I can assure you it's a cute set and I guess you'll have to check out the rest of the TCM DT for a good peek at it! :)

However, one set I can give you a peek at is the set, Christmas Cheer also designed by Mabelle R-O. This set has a fun, retro kinda feel to it - great for the guys or gals you're stamping for. I focused in on a funky snowflake stamp and a sentiment for yet another holiday card:

Let it Snow
Tips: Staz-on ink works a treat when stamping on glimmer cardstock.
Place small dots of adhesieve on the reverse side of the embossed snowflakes to avoid marks showing through the vellum.

Vellum. I forget how it can transform a project so easily! I simply stamped snowflakes over a panel of vellum with clear ink and embossed with white embossing powder. My bottom panel of card is actually glimmer cardstock (my camera hasn't picked it up). At first I was going to have snowy hills of glimmer cardstock, but changed my mind and kept it clean and graphic with a straight strip; we can say that the snow is falling evenly on this ground *wink*

Before you dash, be sure to get a good peek at not only this set but the set I haven't been able to ink up yet by checking out the TCM DT. And if you like what you see, then be sure to leave a comment on the TCM Blog by 9pm PDT tonight for your chance to win either set!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by today!

Catch ya later!

What a cool idea to stamp the snowflakes on vellum. It looks perfect. Thanks for the tip about putting the dot of adhesive behind the snowflake. Simply wonderful CAS card!

Duchess! How did you know our Canadian snow falls so evenly! LOL It was a red mitten day here and I was so glad I wasn't on duty :) We are praying for sunny weather Thursday when we head out to the pumpkin patch! Those snowflakes are adorable!
