My Creative Time February Stamp Release Blog Hop!


Welcome to the My Creative Time February Stamp Release Blog Hop!  Emma's release this month has completely gotten me in the mood for spring!  If you haven't been to her blog yet today, head over now to see the video introducing the three awesome stamp sets AND some fun new dies!  

For my project today I am showcasing Hello Spring, a darling stamp set that includes layering egg dies!  I thought it would be fun to make a milk carton that could be filled with chocolate eggs.  I cut it out of kraft cardstock from The Paper Company with my Expression 2, using the Imagine All Wrapped Up cartridge at "Fit to Page."  I then added a layer of dark chocolate cardstock and a layer of patterned paper from Papertrey Ink's Pretty Pastels on each of the panels.


The front panel has one of my favorite images from Hello Spring.  It's actually wide enough to use on the short side of an A2 size card, but I only needed part of it for my project.  "Just 4U" is also from this set.


I love that Hello Spring has a circle sentiment to use with Emma's Scalloped & Stitched Circle Dies!  I added a little bling to the coordinating image.  To seal my box, I punched holes in it and tied some PTI Spring Moss grosgrain ribbon.


Here's another view of the box.  Aren't the little chicks adorable?  I colored them with some Copic markers.


Of course, I had to add one of my favorite Teeny Tag Sentiments, stamped on paper cut with the Teeny Tag Dies.


I love how the egg die is stitched AND has a layer!   This set also comes with adorable coordinating stamps to decorate your eggs, but I chose to use patterned paper this time.  Below is a pic of the entire stamp set and dies:
