TCM Previews: Beautiful Spring, Mother & Father

Welcome to The Craft's Meow's FIRST Birthday Celebration! We have lots of new and exciting things the next few days and I hope you can celebrate along with us.
I'm so glad you can join us today as The Craft's Meow's team previews two of my sets for March, Beautiful Spring and Mother and Father. Happy Spring is perfect for those who love to color. But even for those who don't, there are solid images in the set. I love to color, but don't always have the time to invest, so the solid images come in handy. Mother and Father is a sentiment set that honors our beloved parents, just in time for the upcoming Mother's Day and Father's Day celebrations.

For my first card, I stamped and colored the butterfly from Beautiful Spring with Copic markers in two hues. I did this previously on another butterfly and I received inquiries about how I did that. I'm no Copic expert (haven't had the opportunity to take a class since they don't come to Croatia :), but I will do a tutorial on this on a future post. The sentiments are from Mother and Father.
The lovely papers are My Mind's Eye. I stamped the line art flower image on the patterned paper. I die cut that border lace using Spellbinder dies. The gorgeous flourish bling is by Want2Scrap.
My second card is inspired by today's challenge, which is to create a card following this sketch, created by our very own Amy Tsuruta:
And here's my interpretation, using both Beautiful Spring and Mother and Father sets.I colored the flower and leaves with Copics. The papers are again My Mind's Eye.
Don't you just love that bling? I can't get enough of Want2Scrap products!
We have tons of new exciting things going on with TCM, including some new members of the team. Please welcome these talented ladies with us:
