Butterfly Kisses Blog Hop

Welcome to Release Day with The Craft's Meow! I hope you have enjoyed the previews. Aren't I blessed to have such a great group of talented ladies showcasing my stamp designs? They are a treasure for any stamp designer and I get to be theirs through TCM! What a treat for me.

But, before anything else, I just want to note that the Fly Free set from yesterday's post was inspired by no other than Sarah Martina. The brilliant open birdcage with butterflies was her idea and I just merely interpreted it with my pen. She deserves all the credit for that beautiful concept!

Today is a hop with more prizes up for grabs. You should have come from The Craft's Meow's blog. If not, you should begin there to get all the details for the hop.

The Butterfly Kisses set, as I have already mentioned, was inspired by my girls. The fairy is a silhouette of my youngest, who had hair just like this when she was 3. My middle child is a big fan of Tinker Bell, so she was so tickled when I showed her this little fairy. And my oldest helped with the sentiments. And all three love to blow on these dandelions. So, they're having a ball now as these weeds are everywhere.

Butterfly Kisses coordinates with Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime collection.
Butterfly Kisses 2
Here's my 2nd card using the butterfly image.
Butterfly Kisses 1
Sarah Martina has created a fabulous kit using these papers and stamps together as well. You will want to check it out, along with the new stamps on The Craft's Meow's blog.

These are today's prizes. You can find the details of the giveaways on The Craft's Meow's blog:
  1. Butterfly Kisses stamp set (being showcased today)
  2. Lush 2 Turquoise Prize Package from My Mind's Eye!!! Includes one each of the patterned and flocked papers shown, plus all the accessories! Thanks again Nick!
  3. Sarah's Butterfly Kisses Card Kit
Once again, 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 (May 1st) to make the rounds! The winners will be announced in tomorrow's post.

Now, you need to hop on to my very talented friend, Alice Wertz. I know you will not be disappointed.

  2. Nina! Nina! Nina!! Your first card just took my breathe away - it is now my favourite set - you have combined the beauty of silhouettes with the wonder and childhood memories of Dandilions and captured the illusive beauty of the butterfly! All this is inspired by your daughters - it is beautiful and has stolen my heart my friend. It has made my heart smile! Thank you Nina, for you commitment to excellence and the beauty you bring to us all! God bless you! {{{hugs}}}

  6. Wowsers Nina....these cads are works of ART!!! The 1st card made me smile deeply as it also reminded me of my little girl...and I love the simplicity and innocence of it. The B'flies in the 2nd one look like they are soooooo easy to cut out (always a plus). Love them both. So well done.

  31. Oh Nina! This is my favorite of all! We have a huge "fairy fetish" in my family - we started a collection of fairies for my daughter when she was little and we add a new one at least once a year - she is almost 17. The rest of us draw them, read about them, stamp them, etc. I had to have the Tink and friends cart for my cricut as soon as it came out... And I still love blowing dandylions even though they scatter and make more work for me. I have to have this set - as soon as i can fit it in my budget :( You are so talented and i love your stamps!!! And I have rambled on way too long :) But Thank you for creating this set!!!
