Trust me....he'll love it even if you don't!


Welcome back for day 3 of the countdown sneaky peeks from The Craft's Meow!
The Craft's meow

As you already know, we're getting festive with this release and today we get to give you a sneaky peek of two more sets - one of which is designed by myself.

First up is a fab set by Karen Baker called Holiday Foundations. I love the grungy feel to it! Now for my sneak peek, you'll either love it or hate it. The good news is that I reckon the recipient will love it.

Merry Christmas

I've been hooked on the TV series and comic graphic novel The Walking Dead. So has my guy. I couldn't help but create a Christmas card inspired by it when I combined those distressed candy stripes, cool font with the splatter stamp from Karen's previous set, Typically Teen. So this card is heading to my guy this year - trust me, he'll love it even if you don't! *wink*

Next up is a set that I designed that is free when you spend $50 at the TCM Store this month. O Christmas Tree takes the stress out of mass producing and masking with your holiday stamping. No more cutting isosceles triangles out for masks and stamping patterns through to make Christmas trees; the hard work has already been done for you! :)

O Christmas Tree

See what I mean? No masking involved, simply stamp and go (to the post office to post this to someone!) There's a variety of trees in the set as well as sentiments, so it takes some of the boredom out of mass producing too - bonus!

Now be sure to leave a comment on the TCM Blog by 9pm PDT tonight if you fancy the chance of winning one of these set! Oh, and while you're over there, take a peek at what the rest of the TCM DT whipped up (especially if you're not a fan of my zombie inspired Christmas card!) :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Catch ya later!

Debby said...

Your first card is fabulous and he's just going to love it! I do too but my heart was won by your set Aimes - that is one set that is just perfect for CAS lovers :)

Karen B. said...

So I've got a Crafting Confession: I wondered how you got the red to mist so perfectly! Ahh, great to see TT used again. Love both these cards, the first so graphic and the second so perfect. Wonderful, wonderful stamp set you've designed.

Lagene said...

Great cards, Love your CAS tree!

Jennifer Rzasa said...

Haha...I really do like that first card. My husband and I have been reading the Walking Dead since I think 2 yrs ago- we love it! It's fun to watch the series now too (even though we already know what will happen!) I'm not sure what splattered zombie blood has to do with Christmas, but I'll roll with it! :)

Both cards look AMAZING! That new set rocks!

Brenda said...

Beautiful cards. I love Karen's set as well.

Maureen said...

I love it, Duchess! I'm not sure which card I want to call for my Christmas card! There is a sweet place for it beside my most fabulous mitten card :)

Jenny said...

Fun card for your guy :0)
