My Creative Time October Stamp Release Sneak Peek #3


It's Day 3 of the My Creative Time October Stamp Release Sneak Peeks, and we've got a fantastic one to share today!!!  If you have Emma's XL Label Die, you need this set.  And if you don't have the XL Label Die, you need it too!  Emma originally made this die to use with her Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set, which includes a beautiful whimsical stamped border.  To get you more use out of your die, she's created a new stamp set, XL Label Borders.  This set has fun new borders, including the snowflake one that I used on my tag!


To make my tag, I first die cut light blue cardstock with the XL Label Die.  I then stamped the snowflakes from XL Label Borders with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.  I also used my Crop-a-Dile to add an extra large eyelet.  I knew I wanted to pop up my snowman (created with the All Around Accessories stamp set that we sneaked yesterday), but I had a feeling that cutting out those twig arms would be tricky.  So, I inked up just the arms of the snowman, stamped them on my tag, and colored them with a Copic marker.


I then stamped the snowman again on white cardstock and colored him with Copics before cutting him out (minus the arms).  After popping him up on the tag, I gave his eyes some shine with Glossy Accents.


Here's a peek at the back of my tag.  The cute "to" and "from" are also included in the XL Label Borders set!  Be sure to stamp these before adding the popped-up snowman!


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:
