The Craft's Meow's May Release Blog Hop

Hi, crafty friends! I hope you have enjoyed the previews The Craft's Meow team has been showing the last few days. If you came from my friend, Michelle Bertuzzi's, blog, then you are at the right spot. Please check the TCM blog for the list of participants.

The release is finally here that includes two sets by me. Flower Garden and Sew Lovely. For my project today, I made a card set that uses many of the new sets. The first two are the more feminine ones. I stamped several images from the  Flower Garden set to create a colorful background on a 4" x 5.5" white cardstock. I then cut it in half and used them on two cards.

I used a sentiment from Sew Lovely on this one. The patterned papers are from scraps I had laying around. 
TCM3
This one uses a sentiment from Typically Teen set.
TCM4
Here's a close up of the butterfly embellished with buttons.
TCM-details
I also made two masculine cards using the same concept. I stamped the borders from Retro Foundations using inks that coordinate with my card set.
TCM-cards1
This sentiment is from Dads & Grads. Because they're meant to be masculine, I didn't put the butterflies, but big buttons instead.
TCM1
This sentiment is from Typically Teen. Twine in coordinating colors are perfect for this card set.
TCM2
Here are the new sets by me that are now available in The Craft's Meow store.
Sew Happy coordinates with my Spellbinders Licensed Design, Sewing Elements dies.
I am the last stop on the hop. Don't forget to comment here and everybody's blog for a chance to win the new stamp sets! And if you want more opportunities to win prizes, my NinaB Designs blog hop giveaway ends tonight. I will announce the winners tomorrow!
