Introducing Potted Garden & Cottage Garden!


Hello, stampers! Welcome to the first day of our August release extravaganza! We're releasing SIX new stamp sets for your paper crafting pleasure on Wednesday, August 21st, and the previews start today! If you're a flower lover, you're going to love today's two sets: Potted Garden and Cottage Garden... both are amazingly versatile! Take a look at what our talented designers have created with them...

Edited to add: These are the first two of the three stamp sets designed by Clare Buswell, to debut here at The Craft's Meow! We had a bit of a mix-up last night when the posts went live. Due to crossed wires, there were two versions of today's post prepared, one with that information and one without. Unfortunately, the one without went live. We are VERY excited about Clare's illustrations... just wait until you see the entire sets. Swoon! 















Aren't they lovely? :)

I have a set of each Potted Garden and Cottage Garden to give away as prizes. All you have to do for a chance to win one of these sets is leave a comment on this post by 8:00 pm Pacific tonight. I'll draw the winners and announce them in tomorrow's post. Good luck!

I hope you'll join us tomorrow when we preview our next newest stamp set: Choose Hope. (I think you're going to love it!) See you then!
