The Craft's Meow June Release Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to The Craft's Meow June Release Blog Hop! TCM is releasing  five fabulous stamp sets designed by Nina Brackett and Michelle Bertuzzi this month. I am featuring Nina's Celebrating You set today.


I never thought that I would use these colors in one card. LOL! I did an online search for fuchsia and I was amazed by the vibrant and saturated colors these flowers have.


I have always avoided using fuchsia, but it's such a pretty flower I had to give it a go.


I used one of the dies from the Grommet Tags die set to emboss the frame for the sentiment. Nina also designed a set of stamp (With Gratitude) to go with this die set, but the sentiment that I used is from the Celebrating You set.

One lucky commenters will win the entire release (that's all five stamps sets released today!) through a random drawing from one of the blogs on the hop. It might be this one! =) So be sure to visit all the blogs for another look at these fabby stamp sets. You have until 6:00 pm Pacific on Sunday, June 5th to enter for the drawing. The winner will be announced on The Craft's Meow Store Blog.

It's time to send you off to Amy Tsuruta's blog. I know she will have something fabulous for you!

Have a beautiful day and have fun hopping! =)



Thanks for stopping by!
