My Creative Time's August Stamp Release Blog Hop


Today's the day!  It's the My Creative Time's August Stamp Release Blog Hop!  I don't know how Emma does it, but each release is even cuter than the last!  You will love all four of her new stamps sets and the three brand new dies!  If you haven't been to Emma's site yet this morning to see her video introducing all of the new products, head over there now.

I made this card for my brother and sister-in-law, who just bought a new house.  The card is a 3 1/4" square, and I made a matching 3 1/4" envelope from the Walk In My Garden Cricut cartridge.  The aqua layer on the card is a 3" square, stamped with the Papertrey Ink Background Basics:  Twinkle stamp set.  To decorate the card, I used two of Emma's brand new stamp sets.  The first one, Small Talk, has this great dotted frame that is perfect for 3" cards.  It comes with lots of sentiments that fit in the corner of the frame.


However, for this card, I really liked the "Congrats on your new home" sentiment from Home Sewn, and it fit perfectly in that spot too!  Click here for ordering information!


There is an adorable house image on Home Sewn that fits perfectly into the wagon.  There are even little patches of grass to add to the sides!  I stamped my wagon twice, once on the aqua background paper, and once on red cardstock.  Before cutting out the red wagon, I heat embossed "WE'VE MOVED" onto it with white embossing powder.  I love how this gives it the look of a classic Radio Flyer wagon.


The grass is also stamped right on the background paper.  To make the house, I stamped it once on brown cardstock and once on yellow patterned paper before cutting them out and assembling them.  

Since packing takes a lot of energy, I made a coordinating box full of treats using the Cricut Sweet Tooth  Boxes cartridge.  The details on making the box are on my post on Everyday Cricut today. 


Card Recipe:

Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, & Dark Chocolate Cardstock
Echo Park "A Walk in the Park" Patterned Paper
My Creative Time "Home Sewn" & "Small Talk" Stamp Sets
Papertrey Ink "Background Basics:  Twinkle" Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate, Aqua Mist, & Ripe Avocado Ink
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

Papertrey Ink White Filigree Embossing Powder
