Oh Deer . . . It's Summer Fun !

Welcome back to The Open Window.
So glad you could swing in today because it's
Day Four of the New Release Previews over at

and today there are TWO fabulous previews to share.

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.

The first set was designed by our own team member
Amy Wanford
and is so adorable!  It's called 'Oh Deer'

How fun is this set? !
It was a pretty simple card to make because I paper-pieced
the sweet deer using an argyle pattern from Authentique.
I colored the little stumps with one Copic and die cut
my favorite clouds from Lil' Inker Designs.
OH!  The sweet little butterfly pattern is Echo Park
and is adorned with tiny pearls.

Now for something completely different . . .

 Next up is this month's limited time gift with $50 purchase
designed by Kaitlyn Ord called 'Summer Fun'

I loved the chevron pattern from the Sweet Day collection
from Echo Park and decided to cut out just a section as my background.
I then stamped the beach ball on the reverse side of the same sheet.
Another fabby pattern !
I stamped the sentiment and done.
A fun summer-time card.

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 Thursday !

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.

What cute stamps! The Oh Deer set reminded me of a visit to a deer park in Japan. The very tame deer would come right up to you. So sweet!
