My Creative Time September Stamp Release Blog Hop


The day you have been waiting for is finally here!  Today is the official release of the brand new My Creative Time stamps and dies!  You will just love these sets - they are so much fun to play with!  If you haven't been to Emma's site this morning, head over there now to see her video introducing all of her new stamp sets and dies!

Anyday Bingo & Crossword is my FAVORITE of this release!   I love Bingo cards, but I've never purchased them because you are limited to what is pre-printed on them.  Emma's set is so much fun because it comes with a complete alphabet and adorable little images for the "free space."  The possibilities are endless!


I decided to make a Christmas card because I've been dying to use the My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found Christmas" 6x6 stack that I bought this summer.  I love the vintage look to this paper, and I thought the letters and numbers on the Bingo card were a great match for it.  I first stamped my Bingo card on one of the patterned papers from this pack, using dark chocolate ink.  I cut it out, rounded the corners, and inked around the edges.  I then stamped "MERRY" and the Christmas tree, using colors of ink that coordinate with my papers.


Because the patterned papers have such a vintage feel for them, I used my Gypsy to find an old-fashioned stocking.  This one is from the Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge, cut at 3 1/4".  I really wanted to pull in the scarlet cardstock that I used for my card base, so I cut the layers with this color.  It looked a little plain to me, so I dressed it up by stamping the layers with a pattern from the new Build a Banner Kit and some dark chocolate ink.  I then attached the stocking to the card with a My Mind's Eye brad and some crinkle ribbon.

***Giveaway Alert***
For my giveaway today, I am giving away the Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamp set shown below, that I showcased today!  To enter to win, just leave a comment here by Sunday at midnight!
