Happy World Card Making Day & The Craft's Meow October Release Blog Hop



Happy World Card Making Day and welcome the The Craft's Meow October Release Blog Hop! If you came from The Craft's Meow Store Blog, you are on the right track. Here is my card using the elegant As We Gather Together set.


I first stamped the leaves using barn door and wild honey distress inks on watercolor paper. The sentiment is then stamped with walnut stain distress ink. Mr. Turkey is stamped with vintage photo distress ink. I spritzed water on the stamps before stamping each time.


That's all I have. It's time to send you to Amy's Blog. I can't wait to see what she came up with for the hop! Don't forget to leave a comment at The Craft's Meow Store Blog for a chance to win ALL the new stamps released today. You can also find all the new stamps at The Craft's Meow.
