The Craft's Meow Sneak Peak - Lovely Birds

Oh what an exciting day! It is day 1 of The Craft's Meow Sneak Peak previews and the release is awesome! I am so excited to have been asked to help showcase this month's release and have had so much fun playing with these stamps! This first set is called "Lovely Birds" designed by Nina B Designs and they are lovely!  Here is my card:

I stamped the main image on white card stock and just lightly colored it with Copics. I used some crystal effects for the water. The flower centers were kind of an accident. I had put some yellow gemstones on them before running it through my Big Shot with the Spellbinder Die. I know - what was I thinking!? However - it turned out kind of neat so I left it! I used Echo Park (love that paper!) for the background, cut out some of the birds, added lace and there you go - some truly lovely birds! 

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 Lovely Birds... 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!
