The Craft's Meow March Release - Day 1

Please check out my Waltzingmouse sketch and Sketchbook Saturday posts below as well!

Oh how exciting it is to finally start sharing the The Craft's Meow March release with you!! This is hands down the sweetest release that I had the pleasure to take part in, and it's also a humongous one! There are six new sets being introduced in the next five days, and each day you've got a chance to win one or more of them.

We are welcoming new Designers to our ranks: Jackie Rockwell, Jen Cuthbertson and my sweet CASE Study pal, Amy Wanford (Aimes)!
Joining us is also a brand new stamp designer, Karen Baker (I can't WAIT to see her designs!!), and two Guest Designers, Amy Kolling and Deborah Nolan.
That's what I call a reason to celebrate! :)

Today we are introducing two sets designed by Nina Brackett, Beautiful Spring and Mother & Father. I can't get enough of both, and I'm sure that you will be seeing lots of these in the weeks to come.
I combined both, on the card below. I pieced the flowers from Beautiful Spring with two layers of cardstock, that I lightly scrunched to add some texture.

Supplies: cardstock: PTI (Spring Moss, Rustic Cream), SU! (retired purple); stamps: The Craft's Meow (Beautiful Spring, Mother & Father); ink: Memento (Bamboo Leaves, Bahama Blue, Lulu Lavender, London Fog); Shapeabilities Fancy Tags; MFT Dizzy Doily die; pinking scissors; rhinestones: Kaisercraft

I used the Card Patterns sketch 156:



To give you some additional inspiration, we're giving you a new challenge on each day of the previews, and today there is this lovely sketch from Amy Tsuruta.
The deadline for all 3 challenges for the birthday week is 9:00pm PDT, Saturday, March 31st.



I designed one more card, with this sketch and the butterfly from Beautiful Spring. Such a gorgeous stamp to colour! I sneaked in the sentiment from Sent With Love, also by Nina.
