The Craft's Meow Birthday Bash---Day 1


Well today is the day!  Today marks Day 1 of the festivities around here for The Craft's Meow Birthday Bash and their new release!  Can I get a woot woot?  Alright, first up did you see the newest designers for TCM??  Please welcome:  Karen Baker (stamp illustrator), Amy (Aimes) Wanford, Jennifer Cuthbertson, and Jackie Rockwell.  These ladies are way talented and I get to be among them for the month as a March Guest!

Today I get to show you a project using 2 new sets designed by Nina Brackett of Nina B Designs called Beautiful Spring and Mother and Father.  I LOVE creating cards like todays!  You know why?  I love to add embellishments and layers.  These types of sets are just my style....literally.  I could NOT wait to get my hands on this stamp set to use my most favorite technique on:  Emboss Resist.  **I did a photo tutorial on it last week and you can find it HERE.  It was also a featured technique last week over on the Moxie Fab World Facebook page!**  I've used the sketch below for my card today.



The Craft's Meow, in celebration of their Birthday during this week, is having daily challenges!  Today's challenge is to use the following sketch by Amy Tsuruta.  For complete rules on the challenge(s), please check out TCM blog for details.  There will also be prizes daily so leave those comments for your chance to win that days featured stamp sets!  The deadline to leave those comments is 9:00pm PDT, Friday, March 23rd.
