My Creative Time October Stamp Release Sneak Peek #4



Are you excited?  Today is our last day of sneak peek's before tomorrow's BIG reveal of the October My Creative Time Stamp Release!  For my project, I made a card that is perfect for sending to a friend who is long overdue a letter from me.  My favorite part of this card is the background paper.  I created this by first using the My Creative Time Stitched {only} Circle Die, running it through my Cuttlebug multiple times to create circles all over my paper.  I then stamped the adorable clock face and hands from the new All Around Birthday Time stamp set, which is being released tomorrow.  A fun feature is that the hands are separate stamps from the clock, which allowed me to create any time I wanted!


This cute grandfather clock is from the French Manor Cricut cartridge, cut at 4 1/2".  I ran the dark brown layer through my Cuttlebug with my PTI Woodgrain Impression Plate.


The sentiment is from another set being released tomorrow, Cherish This Moment.

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:

Wow! Love that background paper idea. Neat way to coordinate dies and stamps as a background. The woodgraining dimension on the clock is perfect.
