Feelin' Groovy!

Welcome back to The Open Window !

It's Day #4 and the final day of New Release Previews for

Tomorrow will be the BIG TEAM blog hop and 
all SIX of the fabulous new stamp sets
previewed this past several days will be available for sale.

Today, we reveal our final two sets designed by 
my very talented friend Karen Baker.

This one is called 'Retro Foundations'
and it's uber-groovy !

I admit it . . . I LOVE disco and couldn't wait to get my design claws
on this disco ball !  I made it sparkle with Stardust Stickles.
The borders included in this set are absolutely fab and how about 
that sentiment ? !  I love using tiny rhinestones to 'hang' things . . .
birdcages, chandeliers and now this great disco ball.
The set comes with a chain as well.

This next stamp set is the May gift with $50 purchase called
'Typically Teen'

I know this set is going to get a LOT of use in my projects.
The abstract designs are perfect for all sorts of backgrounds
and shadow accents.

I love the Decorative Dress Forms dies from Spellbinders
and thought it would be fun to design a dress using
the 'spatters' in this set.  I used a variety of ink from A Muse Studio.
Keeping with a retro-feel, I created rings using 
Spellbinders Standard Circles dies.

Don't forget . . . this set can be yours when you order $50 or more
from The Craft's Meow and it all becomes available on Monday !

Make sure you pop by
and check out the creative work
from all of the designers.
TCM is giving away a new release set
each day, so make sure you leave a comment
on the blog for a chance to win!

I am so glad you stopped by today.
Tomorrow is the New Release Blog Hop,
so make plans to stop back.
