Baggin' some rays...

Hello sunshine!

Welcome back to the fourth and final day of the July sneak peeks at the The Craft's Meow! Once again I am joining Lisa and her team as a Friend of TCM and I have had such a blast playing along this week. :)

As I've mentioned before, there are four fantastic new stamp sets that will be released on July 1st (which is tomorrow, yeah!) at The Craft's Meow and today
we are showcasing Baggin' Some Rays. This is another set designed by Nina B Designs for TCM and all of the images are created for you to mix and match and build your own sunshiny image! There are also plenty of beautiful sentiments included that tie in perfectly with the sunshine theme but can also be used with loads of other images too.

"Holy sun rays Batman... she didn't use any Copics!"
LOL, how do you like my Robin impersonation? It's true though, not a marker was touched in the making of this card and it has been years since the last time that has happened! I can hardly believe it myself. It was so different to be searching through my colored ink pads rather than my markers when it came time to add some color, but different can be good. :)
There are no fancy stamping techniques or anything but I didn't need them because I let the mix and match capabilities of this set do all of the work for me. Then I just did some fussy cutting and relied on my monochromatic color scheme to pull this card together. I think this card is sure to bring a smile to someone's face, don't you?


Now what would new release festivities be without chances to win prizes? Yep, Lisa will draw THREE of you to win Baggin' Some Rays... one from each of three of the design team and friends blogs. For a complete list of who's got sneak peeks just check out the TCM blog. You'll have until 10:00 pm Pacific tonight to make the rounds and leave comments and Lisa will announce the winners in tomorrow's post... which also happens to be a fun blog hop celebrating the release so don't miss that!

TTFN!

Hi Amy. I love your card! It is just sooo full of sunshine and happiness. I always laugh to myself when you and I mention the say things. It's just too weird. My card for today has NO copics on it either. Hope you are having a great day. I ended up getting today off instead of working a half day, so I am GREAT! We all went for a walk and a dip in the pool. Now that's how I would love to start every morning. Hope you are doing good. Hugs, Lisa
