Happy Easter From The Craft's Meow!

  Hello friends! Veronica here to share a card I created for today, Easter Sunday! I am very happy to be here today, and I hope that you are enjoying the day with your families.

   To create my card I used the sets "Easter Blessings", and "Holiday Foundations".

Celebrate with Cake!

Happy Friday TCM Fans!
It's Sharri with you here to day to share a card I made using a couple of fun stamps sets which I love because they can be paired up with so many of the TCM sets! 
The 'cake' and heart with the Celebrate sentiment are from Love Dwells Here. The cake stand and the bow are from Take The Cake. I did a bit of fussy cutting so I could pop up the bow and heart on the cake to add dimension to the card. 
The papers are from an older My Minds Eye paper pack called Stella Ruby - Hattie. 
I threaded the black gingham ribbon through the top of the lace and tied it with a bow.  I finished off the card  by adding tiny rhinestones to the cake stand and the top center of the heart.

These are the sets I used:

Love Dwells Here
Take The Cake
Thank you for stopping by the blog and have a fantastic start to your weekend!

Here for you Anytime

Hello! Clare here with a card for you today using the fabulous Vintage Clocks and Cherished stamp sets.

I love the Vintage Clock set, all those beautiful details. Here I just stamped one of the clocks using VersaFIne Onyx Black and colored with some Distress Markers. The pretty background paper is from Introspection by Prima Marketing.

For the sentiment I combined two elements from both Vintage Clocks and Cherished stamp sets to personalize my card.

Here are the great stamp sets I used to make my card. Have a great day!

Birthday Wishes

Lindsay with you today, to share a fun little card with you, using one of our newest sets, Sweet Birthday.  I also paired it with Good Times

To start, I adhered a lovely piece of gold cardstock onto a white card base.  Cutting a panel of white cardstock, I masked and stamped a cluster of balloons, and taking a black multi-liner, created the strings.  Lastly, I stamped the banner, cut it out and added a sentiment from the Sweet birthday set.  

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  I hope you find some time to get crafty with your stamps!

Paper: Marshmallow Bazzill, Gold Michaels
Stamps: Good Times, Sweet Birthday The Craft's Meow
Ink: Gold Encore, Onyx Black Versafine, Love Letter Tsukineko
Embellishment: Sequins Studio Calico
Tools: Black Multi-liner Copic

Birthday Greetings

Hello friends!  Lin here, with a birthday card, since it's our birthday month here at The Craft's Meow!

I stamped the open horizontal chevrons from our Geometric Foundations stamp set onto 4 different colors of solid and printed papers from Graphic 45 Secret Garden Patterns and Solids paper pad, then cut the chevrons apart and repositioned them to form these vertical chevrons.  I lifted a few of them here and there to give some added interest and dimension, and added some adhesive jewel stickers to the top of each column:

Then I just stamped the birthday sentiment from Stitched Sentiments and colored in the letters with markers that matched my colors.  

I hope my card inspires you to try something a little different with your stamps, too.   Please visit The Craft's Meow Store  to see these and more of our beautiful stamp sets. While you're there, be sure to visit our new Gallery to find lots more inspiration from my TCM teamies!   Enjoy your day!

Our March New Release Blog Hop and Birthday Celebration!!!

Hello, friends! We've made it! Made it to our March release, and made it to TWO years in business! We couldn't have done this without you, so thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

Before we jump to our blog hop, I want to announce something new that is starting today for The Craft's Meow! We finally have an official Gallery!!! Yes, that's right!!! A place where you can go for inspiration and where all the cards/projects are sorted by stamp set. I am especially grateful to my ladies, who have uploaded their cards in time for the release. More cards and projects will be added regularly, so be sure to check there whenever you need some inspiration or just a lovely browse through some incredible art.

There is a link to the Gallery along the top of this blog. Each stamp set in the store now links to its own album in the Gallery, and the Gallery albums link back to the stamp sets in the store for easy reference. If you discover any glitches or missing links along the way, please do let me know. This is a work in progress.

We also have a fun surprise for you today over on Deborah Nolan's blog, so be sure to check that out! Deborah will be doing video tutorials for us on a regular basis, so watch for them here in the future. :)

Okay, I'll bet you're ready for the full reveal of the stamp sets, right? Here they are!!!

The Craft's Meow is proud to offer clear stamps that are made in the USA from high quality photopolymer resin that resist yellowing, including recycled products that help keep our environment green. These polymers are designed and produced for the printing industry and are meant to carry and transfer ink, which is why they stamp so well.

We have a blog hop for you today so that you can get another peek at our newest stamp sets! The hop begins on Clare's blog and is linked from there, but we've included the entire link list just in case there's a break along the way.
