The Craft's Meow Sneak Peak - Life is a Carnival

Welcome to day 2 of The Craft's Meow Sneak Peak previews! The stamp set today is called Life is a Carnival by Nina B Designs! Oh my goodness, you are going to trip over yourselves getting this stamp set! There are so many fun stamps in set - choosing which image to use first was really hard! But here is my card, fun isn't it?

I stamped the roller coaster image first on scrap paper and then on the pre-sponged white card stock. I wanted it to be int he background a bit. Then I used black embossing powder on the ferris wheel and just added a little color to the baskets. For the sentiment I used markers to ink up the stamp using different colors on the the main word. The DP for the top canopy was from (you guessed it) Echo Park - Summer Days.

Be sure to click on the other design team for some more amazing creations:
 
What would new release festivities be without chances to win prizes? Yep, once again, we'll draw THREE of you to win Life is a Carnival... one from each of three of the design team and friends blogs. You'll have until 10:00 pm Pacific tonight to make the rounds and leave comments. We'll announce the winners in tomorrow's post. Enjoy and good luck!!! 

This stamp set and more will only be available at The Craft's Meow Shop on July 1! 

Thanks for looking and don't forget to come back tomorrow for another sneak peek!
