Christmas Blessings with The Craft's Meow!!

Pin It

Hello!!
Welcome back to the Second day of previews for
The Craft's Meow October Release, which will be available in The Craft's Meow Store on October 21st!!
Today's Stamp Set is called Christmas Blessings and it is going to be another MUST have set!! Karen Baker has designed another Amazing Set full of images and sentiments sure to please!! I decided to use the deer silhouette image and I was going for a Music Chalkboard look!! I white embossed it and beings these are clear stamps I was able to repeat my stamping and embossing for an even thicker look which I LOVE!! I used some dies from Simon says stamp to make my card design FUN and the notch at the top was the PERFECT  place to add the Northern Star!! I stamped it using some White LUXE ink and stamped it a couple times for a crisp star!! I then added some Rock Candy Stickles using a tooth pick to get it all the way to the edges of the star ends!! It really looks neat in real life!! I then added some vintage lace and ribbon to the bottom of my card and added some May Arts burlap twine along with a bow and some die cut holly leaves from some felt using a IO stamps die!! I finished it off with some vintage buttons!! For my sentiment I decided to go with a really Neat new product to me Ranger Black Embossing Puffs embossing powder!! This is SO AWESOME in real life and I was really happy with the look of even the fine sentiment!! The only down side to it that I found was if you use it on fine images it can easily get damaged!! Slobber from any 9 month old probably isn't good for most cards though!!  ;) Otherwise I was extremely EXCITED about this powder and I can't wait to use it again on a silhouette image!!
Here is my finished card!!



I hope you enjoyed my card for today and don't forget to go and leave a comment on The Craft's Meow Blog for your chance to win today's preview stamp set Christmas Blessings!!

The die cut edge the star is in is a nice design idea. Your embellishments look beautiful...the holly leaves with the buttons are pretty. I like the look of the sentiment even with the baby slobber ;) Great job!
