The Craft's Meow Card set

CM-set-for-you-3

Hello everyone! I have a set of cards I made with the recently released Simply Delightful set, designed by Nina Brackett for The Craft's Meow! This set was so easy and fast I couldn't believe it! I know those of you who know my usual style are thinking.... CAS??? Grace??? LOL! Well, I have been working on trying to expand my style to include some CAS as they certainly are quicker to make, easier to mail, and lots of people actually prefer them.... so I needed to learn! :) All these cards are made on Gina K Pure Luxury white heavy card stock bases, and use similar patterns in different colors from a Me & My Big Idea paper pack called Posh. The inks that match perfectly are Su! Ruby Red, Old Olive and Only Orange. I stamped each design, then stamped the sentiments in black, then cut out by hand, and mounted on these gorgeous doilies from Cherry Lynn designs using pop dots. I added SU! white satin bows and that was it!

I love these new stamps! They lend themselves to simple stamping! For those of you who don't like to color, or who don't have time.... these are perfect! Hope you enjoyed my project and why not hop on over the The Craft's Meow to see all the goodies Lisa has for you!

I am entering this set in the following challenes:
Craft Us Crazy - Remembrance and/or love, Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Anything goes, Paper Shelter Challenge - #15 anything goes, Truly Scrumptious - #57 Anything Goes , Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes, Sweet Stamps - Medallions, Top Tip Tuesday - Use 2 or More Stamps,

Thanks for stopping and happy Memorial Day weekend to all my American friends!
hugs,
