My Creative Time Blog Hop



Welcome to the My Creative Time blog hop, showcasing Emma's brand new stamps! Today I am showcasing the "Fun Borders" stamp set. This is such a cute one! I stamped my border on a light blue background four times with Versamark and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I think this makes a fun homemade patterned paper!


Next I made a 3.5" pocket card using the Sweethearts cartridge. I ran the envelope through the Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug folder and embellished it with champagne glasses cut at 2.5" from Sweethearts. For my pull-out sentiment, I used another new stamp set from My Creative Time, "My One and Only". Because this is one long stamp, and I needed something shorter for my little card, I stamped each word separately, covering the unwanted word with scotch tape when I inked it up.


Recipe:

8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Papertrey Ink Enchanted Evening Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
5 1/4" x 4" Papertrey Ink Kraft Cardstock
5" x 3 3/4" Papertrey Ink Spring Rain Cardstock
Papertrey Ink Rustic White Cardstock
Core'dinations Cardstock
Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls Embossing Folder
My Creative Time "Fun Borders" & "My One and Only" Stamp Sets
Versamark Ink
a la mode Clear Embossing Powder
Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate Ink
ColorBox Cat's Eye Chalk Ink
Papertrey Ink Rustic Jute Button Twine
