The Craft's Meow August Release Blog Hop

Today is The Craft's Meow August Release Design Team Blog Hop! I hope you stopped by from Gayatri's blog. If not, I would love for you to join us from the start at The Craft's Meow Blog because someone is going to win the entire collection of new releases and it could be you! 
Today I have a card to share using Nina Brackett's newest set Folk Art Blooms:
Love the solid floral images in this set. I stamped mine using Clearsnap ink and sprayed some Dylusions on the card base before adding the flowers I had fussy cut.
 
For this next card, I used new set (illustrated by Clare Buswell) Dream Catcher which is August's Gift with $60 purchase...
  I created the background by applying various distress inks to a white piece of cardstock. Then I set a stencil over it and misted with water, roll a paper towel over it and voila....instant pattern!!  After that I stamped and embossed the image :)
 
Would you like to win these new TCM stamps???
 To have the BEST CHANCE TO WIN the entire collection of new releases,
pay a visit to our designer's blogs, leave a comment where you can and cross your fingers
