My Creative Time October Stamp Release Blog Hop!


The day you've been waiting for is finally here!  Today you get to see all four of My Creative Time's fantastic new stamp sets!  If you haven't been to Emma's site yet, head over there now to see her video introducing each of the sites.

I had so much fun using All Around Birthday Time for my project today.  I made this card for my aunt, who just turned 70 last weekend.  It's a little late, but hopefully the cuteness will make up for it!  She has a great sense of humor, so I think she'll get a kick out of the shocked looking flower.


I made my three flowers using the My Creative Time Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies.  For the center sentiment, I stamped "Look Who's 70" from All Around Birthday Time and popped up the flower with some pop dots.  I just love how All Around Birthday Time has individual numbers so that I can personalize cards for specific birthdays.  My other two flowers are stamped with Peachy Keen faces.  I cut the flower stems at 2" and 2 1/2" from the Walk in My Garden Cricut cartridge.



To create my grass, I cut it twice at 1 1/4" from Plantin Schoolbook.  The first layer is adhered directly to the card, but I used pop dots for the second layer to add some dimension.


For the inside of my card, I stamped my favorite "Happy Birthday" (I just love this font) from Emma's Gift Card Sentiments stamp set.

Recipe:

Papertrey Ink Kraft, Melon Berry, New Leaf, Orange Zest, & Harvest Gold Cardstock
My Mind's Eye "Lime Twist:  Fly a Kite," "Lime Twist:  Life of the Party," and "Lost and Found:  Rosy" Patterned Paper
My Creative Time "Scallop & Stitched Circle" Dies
My Creative Time "All Around Birthday Time" & "Gift Card Sentiments" Stamp Sets
Peachy Keen PK-491 Everyday Character Faces Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy, True Black, & Chai Ink
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
Copic Marker

***Giveaway Alert***

For my giveaway today, I have the All Around Birthday Time stamp set shown below, that I showcased today!  To enter to win, just leave a comment here by Sunday at midnight!
