My Creative Time September Sneak Peek #3


Good morning!  It's time for Day 3 of our My Creative Time September Sneak Peeks!  Today we are showcasing Emma's new stamp set, Whimsical Calendar Days, and die, XL Label Die.  This is another set that can be used in so many different ways.  I chose to use it in a Halloween card today.  This is an A2 sized card (5 1/2" x  4 1/4").  My cute witch is from the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art Cricut cartridge, cut at 3".


For the calendar, I began by die-cutting some cute My Mind's Eye Halloween paper, using the XL Label Die.  I then stamped the coordinating frame in orange.  This stamp set comes with one set of dates, but if you are using a month with less than 31 days, it is easy to mask off the days you don't need by covering them with scotch tape before inking (just remember to remove the scotch tape before stamping).  After stamping the dates and month, I used the little square that comes with the set to highlight October 31st.


I couldn't resist adding one of my favorite My Creative Time Halloween sentiments.  This one is from the Mixed Holiday Sentiments stamp set.  A pretty brad finished it off!


Listen up "My Creative Time" friends!  We are giving you an opportunity to win the BEST PRIZES during Sneak Peek Week, with a total of SIX winners being announced during Friday's Stamp release!  All you have to do is leave a comment HERE, as well as on the rest of the design team's blogs for a chance.  There are some AWESOME prizes with this release!  Here's what to do to qualify:

1.  Spread the word to the world on Facebook & to whatever connections you have about this release.  Let us know that you did so on My Creative Time's Facebook page, OR just tag Emma in your post!

2.  Just comment on ALL of the designer's blogs EVERY DAY during Sneak Peek Week!  That's ALL you have to do to qualify for the giveaways!

The winners will "randomly" get chosen, and Emma will announce all six winners on Friday, September 16th, at 8:00 AM PST, in her video during the release of this AMAZING new stamp collection and dies! Good luck!  Get onto Facebook now and start spreading the word!  And don't forget to stop by My Creative Time to see Emma's and the rest of the design team's projects!
