My Creative Time October Stamp Release Sneak Peek #2


 

I'm back with another sneak peek of the My Creative Time October Stamp Release!  If you love coloring, you will LOVE today's stamp set!  My cute box is cut from the Cricut Wrap It Up cartridge at 9 1/4".


I stamped this adorable birthday truffle from the My Creative Time All Around Accessories stamp set (being released this Friday) on a scalloped square cut from Mini Monograms at 2 1/2" real dial size and colored it with Copic markers.  The paper I used was white and didn't coordinate well with my star paper, so I distressed it with some PTI Chamomile ink after coloring my truffle.  I also added some Gloss Gel dots to give it some more interest.  This exact image is on the back of the box as well.


After tying up my box with some pretty satin ribbon from PTI, I added a tag made with the My Creative Time Curly Label Die, Inspiring Words {Accents} stamp set, and the Wow!  So Many Candles stamp set.  These three items are already available for purchase at the My Creative Time store.


I actually bought a truffle to put inside the box, nestled in some tissue paper.  Sadly, I don't know anybody having a birthday this week, so I had to eat it myself.  I wouldn't want it going bad!

Listen up "My Creative Time" friends!  We are giving you an opportunity to win some AWESOME 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 prizes that you do NOT want to miss out on!  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, October 21st at 12 AM PST, in her video during the release and blog hop of this AMAZING new stamp collection! 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!
