MCT December Stamp Release Blog Hop!

Today is the day that you can finally see the full December My Creative Time release!  If you just stumbled upon here, you are going to want to start at the beginning, at Emma's blog, where she has a video showcasing the ENTIRE release!


For my card today I used the new Stitched Scallop Heart Die Set.  Aren't these hearts gorgeous?  I kept this card pretty simple so that the intricate cut of the die would really pop!  I cut the hearts out twice in kraft cardstock and once in cream.  After cutting one of the kraft sets right down the middle, I arranged the hearts in a row on a kraft card base.  The cream hearts are glued on top of kraft ones, to give them a little more dimension.


Before adhering the small heart down, I stamped it with a sentiment from the new Lots of Love stamp set.  I just adore the elegant fonts on this one!  I also added a teeny tiny heart from the new Stitched Heart Layering Dies to give my card a pop of red.  It's so easy to make an elegant card with these new products!

Here's a peek at the stamp set and the two die sets that I used for this card.  They are for purchase NOW, and don't forget that there is a sale going on!  You can use the code NEWYEAR at checkout in the My Creative Time Store  to get 20% off your entire purchase!  Yes, that is even including ALL of the stamps that are 40% off right now here!  This sale will end on Sunday, January 6th @ midnight PST!




And, for more fun, Emma designed this special stamp as a "THANK YOU" for all of your support throughout 2012!  With all of her ups and downs this year, you were ALL there to support her in any way possible!  Emma will FOREVER be grateful to each and every one of you!  With that said, she is offering this mini stamp set for FREE to the first 150 shoppers starting at 8 AM PST today.  NO SPECIAL CODE is needed.  If you are among the first 150 shoppers, you will automatically have it included with your order.  ONE per shopper, please.  If you miss out on being one of the lucky shoppers who gets this for free, no worries because Emma will be offering it for sale for those of you who "have to have it!"


***BLOG HOP GIVEAWAY***

For our blog hop giveaway, there will be two winners chosen from ALL of the comments combined!  The first winner will have a "GUEST DESIGN SPOT" for our next release, and the second winner will win a $25 GIFT CARD to the My Creative Time Store!  All you have to do is leave a comment here along with the rest of the design team's blogs AND also leave a  way for us to contact you.  Emma will use random.org to pick the lucky winners.  All you have to do is leave a comment on all blogs in this hop for more chances to win!  The deadline is Sunday, January 6th at midnight.  Emma will announce the winners on her blog on Tuesday, January 8th.

Lovely card! I like how you used the kraft cardstock and also used the one die cut in kraft and put it split and upside down to add more texture and interest. TFS!

Glora said...

Katie, this is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! you do such an amazing job at everything you do. I loved all of your sneaks this week and look forward to trying your chocolate candy with the aluminum foil and just a bit of chocolate showing through. What a genius idea that was. Sorry I didn't mention it early but life has been crazy. Thanks for all the inspiration! Hugs- Glora

Cathryn said...

LOVE the look of this card Katie!! You are so right the heart really pops! Great job! Love and Hugs, Cathryn :)

Bridget said...

I really love this card -- it is such a great idea! It also would be a super easy card to mass produce, plus you will get big muscles working the cuttlebug :)

I just love how much the cream and pure poppy really pop off the kraft.

I also really love the way you put the products pictures used at the end of your post.

Kim H said...

Kaite ~ Can you say LOVE!!! What a CUTE and PERFECT way to use these dies! I LOVE the heart right side up and then the 2 hearts that anchor it up side down! The Kraft card stock with the white and a hint of red & black ~ CLASSY!!!! LOVE it! I apologize for just commenting! Happy New Year Sweet friend!
