Blog Hop with The Craft's Meow and Perfect Paper Crafting

Hello and welcome to my blog!!  Today I am hoping with The Craft's Meow and Perfect Paper Crafting as we showcase projects using products from both of these wonderful companies.  If you have arrived from Jinny Newlin's blog, you are in the right place, if you have happened upon my blog and would like to join us today, hop on back to the Perfect Paper Crafting blog to get started.

For my card today, I used the Folk Art Blooms and Potted Garden stamp sets from The Craft's Meow.  I also used the Perfect Squares and Perfect Layers tools from Perfect Paper Crafting.  Take a look at my card.....

I must admist, I have had the Perfect Layers tools for a few years.  I used them mostly to mat my photos for layouts, but I never really thought to use them on my cards and I must say that they really made the job so much easier...no more uneven matted borders (since I tend to just eyeball the alignment).  I also got to try out the Perfect Squares tool and I love the rulers on it....makes it so easy to get a square angled cut for my project.....

The flowers on my card are stamped from the Folk Art Blooms stamp set.  I used the Potted Garden stamp set to stamp the sentiment.....I am always in need of birthday cards.  ;)

Did you know that there is a huge sale on discontinued stamps going on over at The Craft's Meow.  Some of my very favorites are marked down for this sale, so hurry over and see if your favorites are still available at the wonderful sale prices HERE.

  18. Such lovely and sedate colors. Love how happy those great big blossoms are, but toned down to a very under-stated beauty with your color scheme. Perfectly layered, too.
