The Craft's Meow September Release Blog Hop!

Hi and welcome to The Craft's Meow September Release Blog Hop! If you came from The Craft's Meow Store Blog, you are on the right track. I am the first stop on the hop. Here is my cards for the hop.


I used Jennny's super duper cute Happy H'owl'oween for my first card. Don't you just love this ghost owl?


I embossed the Black Soot Core'dinations card stock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and paper pieced all the images using papers from the Mischievous collection by My Mind's Eye. I stamped the sentiment with PTI's Fresh Snow ink before embossing the black card stock.


For my second card, I used Nina's fabulous Fun{tache}tic set. I am so in love with all the fun mustaches and sentiments in this set. It's so much fun to create with them! =)


I chose to make a simple card. Sorry about the weird lighting on this photo. The 'stache and sentiment are stamped on a piece of patterned paper from the Dwell collection by My Mind's Eye. A couple of goggly eyes and some stitching finished the card. Easy peasy!

That's all I have. It's time to send you to Amy Tsuruta's Blog. I know she won't disappoint you! =) Don't forget to leave a comment on the release blog hop post at The Craft's Meow Store Blog for a chance to win these two fun stamp sets. Both stamp sets are available starting today at The Craft's Meow Store.

Have fun hopping!

Cute owl ghost card!

The embossed paper in the first card gave the creation a certain factor - like it needs few embellishment to paste on as it is already gorgeous by itself. and the googly eyes are funny and very cute when paired with the mustache. The patterned paper made the black and white embellishment pop out.
