The Craft's Meow

Hello!!
Hope you had a Fabulous Weekend and that your Monday is off to a Great Start!!??
Today we are here to Introduce to you the October Release from The Craft's Meow!!
All of these sets are available NOW in The Craft's Meow Store!!
You should have come here from the Blog of our Amazing Guest Designer Kimberly Crawford!! If not, you can start from the beginning on The Craft's Meow Blog!!
 I have three project to share with you today!!
First a card I made using the Holiday Poinsettia the Inside Christmas Stamp Sets!!
I started by stamping the Holiday Poinsettia main image onto my cardstock and Embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder!! I then die cut an arched window from some Vintage Music Paper using a MFT Die and then I die cut an Ornament shape using another MFT die out of the same Vintage Music Paper!! I wanted to share a New Technique with you, but I'm still in the process of moving and I don't have my Video Camera set up yet so I will be sharing a really AWESOME Technique with you soon for creating my Ornament!! (Think Nov. 7th for our Monthly Blog Hop)
I added some ribbon and a gem cluster along with a tag that was die cut from Oatmeal Cardstock using a WPlus 9 Tag Die!! I stamped the Sentiment from the Inside Christmas Set!!





 
For my Next Project I wanted to share a really FUN and SIMPLE Tag that could be made in minutes to decorate all of your Holiday Gifts!! I die cut some Arched Tags using dies from MFT!! I stamped the CUTE Tree Image from The Under the Tree Stamp Set and the sentiment from the Christmas Lantern Stamp Set!! I used my Faber-Castell Aquarelle Water Color Pencils to water color the image and then I added some Yellow Stickles to the Star!! I took the New Hero Arts Gold Shadow Ink and edged the tags and then I stamped the To: and From:  from the Holiday Poinsettia Stamp Set and the Decorative small line from the Inside Christmas Stamp Set on the back side of the tag!! I added the twine and the ribbon and my Gift Tag was finished!!


My last card was really FUN and really SIMPLE to make!!
I used a Memory Box Die and pieced it together using black, green and some white cardstock that I covered with some Rock Candy Distress Glitter!!  I also added a some scrap of Vellum that I inked with some yellow ink to back the house with soft glow coming from the windows!!
I inked the trees and the house with some white ink to give them the look of fallen snow!! I stamped the Northern Star image from the Christmas Blessings Stamp Set and added some Distress Stickles!!
The inside was die cut using a Sizzix Label Die from a cardstock piece covered with Rock Candy Distress Glitter and then I stamped the Sentiment from the Inside Christmas Stamp Set!! I LOVE the simple, but detailed design and think these would be pretty easy to reproduce!!!

I get to watch the combines from the house but not from inside looking out. It looks like Greyson and Grandpa had a fun day and no babies were hurt ;) I like your first card with the ornament. It looks like vellum...Beautiful. The tag is cute and looks fun and fast...I like the scroll stamped by the to & from. I like the sparkle and vintage look of the last card. Great idea to add vellum to the windows. I really like the Inside Christmas sentiments. They look pretty and have wonderful sentiments. Great job on your projects.
