Hello...One Scoop or Two?



Welcome back!

We are celebrating Day Two of New Release Previews for


Summer is in full swing and today we have two
fabulous sets that will make you smile.

The first was designed by our newest designer
Mabelle R-O and is called
'Sweet Taste of Summer'




This set is full of fun images & I chose to go very simple for this card.
Those of you who visit often KNOW that I am not much of a color-er,
but this sweet set begs to be colored !
I love the design of these butterflies and chose to use them.
I used a few Copics to get the job done and added tiny pearls
for dimension.  The clouds were created by sponging ink
around a cloud template that I've had in my tool drawer for
over ten years.  It's one I never want to lose.



The next set was designed by our British designer, 
Amy Wanford called 'One Scoop or Two' . . .



What did I tell ya ? !  Just in time for summer !
There are so many possibilities with this set.
I can imagine using bold, bright, yummy colors...but I went pastel.

I just can't seem to capture white panels on cards very well
with my camera and light tent . . . but I love the patterned paper
from American Craft's 'Neopolitan' collection.
Perfect with these ink colors.


Make sure you pop by
and check out the fabulous-ness
from all of the designers.
TCM is giving away each 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 and I hope
you will plan to come by each day this week
so you don't miss a thing!

Oh my both are so sweet Julie!!! Absolutely love the sweet butterflies against your sky!! The little pearls are a perfect touch! Your ice cream cones looks so yummy!

Those butterflies are so cheerful and I love the statement that your second card makes with the cherry. Fun new sets!

Jocelyn Olson said...

These are both so sweet! I love how you colored the butterflies and the sponging of the sky is fantastic! The ice cream cones are so dreamy (or maybe I'm just dreaming of ice cream at the moment). Love it!

Yum! I could use some ice cream right now. We are at 94 degrees but the heat index has to be 110. Adorable cards. These look like wonderful new stamp sets.
