The Craft's Meow's Simply Delightful

The day I've been waiting for is finally here! Today marks the very first day I get to preview my very first stamps with The Craft's Meow. The TCM team is previewing the Simply Delightful set, which will be available for purchase on May 1st.

Simply Delightful has a big lacy image, which is the focal point of my cards below. It also has flowers, leaves and 3 sentiments. These stamps also coordinate well with the new My Mind's Eye's Stella Rose papers, which are so lovely.

I wanted to show you two different style cards using the same stamps. The first one is my favorite, shabby chic.

Simply Delightful 1
And if you're a frequent visitor to my blog, you know how much I love to make and give away card sets. Here's a CAS (clean and simple) design to make them easy to mass produce. I just used strips of patterned paper and stitched them on the front. I picked the cardstock colors based on the colors of the patterned papers.

A release this exciting needs LOTS of prizes to celebrate, and LOTS of prizes are what we have for you! Each day of previews there will be not one, not two, but THREE prizes up for grabs! Today's prize offerings are:
  1. Simply Delightful Stamp Set (being showcased today)
  2. A My Mind's Eye Hazel 6 x 6 paper pad from the Stella & Rose collection
  3. A My Mind's Eye Gertie 6 x 6 paper pad from the Stella & Rose collection
The prizes will be awarded based on random drawing from the comments left on THREE of the Team blogs listed below! You won't know whose blog has the prize... neither do I, actually, until I draw from a hat...so you'll want to leave a comment on each blog for more chances to win. But please play fair... only ONE comment per blog!

You have until 11:00 pm Pacific tonight (April 28th) to make the rounds! The winners will be announced in tomorrow's post.

Here is the rest of the TCM Crew's blogs where you can feast on some yummy eye candies:
