The Craft's Meow Preview: Potted Garden and Cottage Garden

 Today starts the previews for six new stamp sets which will soon be available through The Craft's Meow on August 21.  All the designers' projects can be seen over on TCM's company blog along with their links for more details, so be sure to check them out.  Today we are featuring two stamp sets, first one designed by our own Clare Buswell, Potted Garden:
I stamped the image using Versafine Oynx Black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. The tulips were coloring using Copics and I paper pieced the pot. The background patterned paper was embossed using an embossing folder.
Next is another set by Clare Buswell called Cottage Garden:
 I die cut a piece of white cardstock and stamped and embossed the bench image (using the same ink as mentioned above) and then stamped the garden images/sentiment. While still in the die, I sponged gently using Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts large daubers and Memento ink.
I'll be back tomorrow with another card from The Craft's Meow August stamp set release!  This is such a great release and I had so much fun playing with all of the new sets! of each of these stamp sets will be given away to a
lucky commenter from the TCM blog. 
Deadline to leave comments each evening is 8 pm PST.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Just love your creations but have to say, that bench is so gorgeous. Must try that technique of colouring too.

The bench is lovely. I like how you stamped the flowers and did the sponging. Nice job with the copics and I like the ribbon, button & twine on the first card. Great job!
