My Creative Time's April Release Blog Hop


Emma has done it again! Today she is releasing her four brand new My Creative Time stamp sets, and they are FABULOUS! All of them are available for purchase on her blog! To celebrate, Emma and her design team are having a blog hop showcasing the new stamps. For my project, I created a coffee mug gift card holder using the coffee mug from the Cheerful Seasons cartridge.

I couldn't resist this sentiment from My Creative Time's "My Favorite Sayings" set. The flower was cut from Kate's ABCs.

I was able to create a pull out holder for a gift card by doing a little bit of welding on my Gypsy and utilizing my scissors. Here's a video showing how I did it.


Recipe:

DCWV Summer Dream Stack
Core'dinations Cardstock
Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate, Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding, & Rustic Cream Cardstock
My Creative Time's "My Favorite Sayings" Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate Ink
ColorBox Cat's Eye Chalk Ink

If you didn't start the hop at My Creative Time, I recommend you go there to see Emma's video announcement. Here is the line-up for the blog. Your next stop is the extremely creative Glora of Glora's Crafts!


If you comment on all of the blogs in the hop, you'll be eligible to win one of nine of Emma's special edition "Bonus Stamp"! Each of us will be giving one away. You have until Sunday at noon Pacific time to comment, and Emma will announce the winners on Monday.
