Earlier this week, the Teamies have been sharing the sneak peeks of six new stamp sets to join the TCM family. You had multiple chances to win win one of these sets, and I hope you were the lucky ones! If you weren't, fret not!
You've got the ultimate chance to grab ALL SIX sets, simply by visiting and commenting on each stop in the hop!
The deadline to comment is 9:00pm PDT, Sunday, June 23rd.

I'm sharing two cards with you today. The first one features my favourites from the release, Stitched Flowers and Stitched Sentiments from Nina Brackett. I absolutely LOVE this whimsical bouquet, it's perfect for colouring! I pulled out my Copics, added some shading to bring the blooms to life and outlined them with light grey marker for further impact. Then I stitched some colourful buttons to the center of each.
A couple of days ago I filled the sentiment with Copics too, this time I left it as it is. Let me tell you, these sentiments are so much fun!!



The card also features some My Mind's Eye papers (Stella & Rose), Kaisercraft lace and my favourite striped twill ribbon.

I based it on two recent challenges, ISSC20 sketch and cQc#142 colours:



For my next card, I put together some utterly lovely Basic Grey papers and die cuts (pb&j), and the stamps from Lovely Labels 14 and Oh Deer.
I first stamped the flowers from Lovely Labels 14 on white card, with Memento Angel Pink. Then I stamped the sentiment from the same set, with Memento Love Letter on pink card and cut out the banner.
The deer from Oh Deer was paper pieced with the BG paper, and I'm pretty happy with how I matched the pattern with the stamp.


This time I used the Card Patterns sketch 170:



From here, jump on over to Jackie's blog! Thank you for visiting, have fun hopping along with us :)
Don't forget, that one of the newly released sets, Summer Fun is your June's Gift w/ $50 purchase in the TCM Store!!
