MCT Sneak Peek #2


It's Day 2 of sneak peeks for My Creative Time February Release, and we are sharing the new Fun Tickets stamps and dies!  These are so much fun!!!  For my project today, I made a birthday card for my brother, featuring an envelope full of tickets.  To make the envelope, I used the MCT 3 x 3 Fancy Envelope Die.  Since my paper was not double sided, I cut out the bottom part of the envelope with one pattern and the top part from another.  They are both from Simple Stories Awesome collection.


Here's the ticket!  I die cut the main ticket in cream cardstock and the layer in kraft.  The fun part about this stamp set is that there are many premade ticket stamps, but also blank rectangular and oval tickets that allow you to use any small sentiments.  Here I used one from MCT's Celebrate Good Times.  I also die cut a cute little star button from the new Stitched Button Dies that are also being released on Friday. A little Thin Kraft Hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique secured them to my envelope.


"It's Your Day" is one of the tickets that comes with the stamp set.  I used "Celebrate" from MCT's Teeny Tag Greetings in the center of the ticket with the oval shape.  These are so much fun to play with, and I'm sure they will be popping up in a lot of my projects!

Sneak Peek Giveaway Time!
With all of our Sneak Peek Weeks, Emma likes to do some FUN giveaways!

*** This time around we are doing something a little bit different!  All you have to do is leave comments on our blogs!  You do NOT have to comment on every blog.  BUT, if you do, you will just have more chances to win!  The thing we are switching up this time is that Emma will be picking a winner each night and announcing the winner the next morning!  Example:  for Monday's sneak, leave your comments here and share on Facebook, and then Emma will announce Monday's winner on Tuesday morning!  That means a winner will be announced every day during sneaks!

*** SPREAD THE WORD TO THE WORLD ON FACEBOOK about this release and to whatever connections you may have!  Let us know on "My Creative Time's" FB page here that you did so!  OR you can just tag Emma in your post!

Good luck!

Log onto your Facebook, and let's start spreading the word!  And be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see what Emma and the rest of the design team have for you today!
