MCT April Release Blog Hop!


Are you so excited?  You can finally get your hands on all of the awesome new stamps and dies from My Creative Time!  We've got a lot to share with you in this hop.  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!

My card today is showcasing the new I'm Here for You Rain or Shine stamp set and the new Stitched Boot Dies!  LOVE these!  I sized my card to fit into a small business envelope that I had laying around.  The cream base is 6 3/8" x 3 1/2".


Here's a close up look at those boots.  Aren't they adorable???  I love that they have layers, allowing us to create some really cute little boots that I wouldn't mind having as real ones to wear!


To make a fun border strip across the top of my kraft layer, I die cut some scraps of the same patterned paper as the boots, using the banner die from MCT's Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  I glued the pointy ends down on the kraft cardstock, trimmed the whole thing with my paper cutter, and then ran it through my sewing machine.  That sweet sentiment is just one of many in the I'm Here for You Rain or Shine stamp set!

Here is a closer look at the new products that I used on this card.  They are all available NOW in the My Creative Time Store!
