Are you ready for a fun week of sneak peaks of an awesome new My Creative Time release? There are so many great sets this month! Okay, let's get started! For my first project today, I made a card using the new Build a Pretty Flower stamp set. I started with an A2 size white card base. Then, to get a red layer that would match my flowers, I took a piece of kraft cardstock and inked the edges of it with Hero Arts Red Royal ink, the darker shade that I used in the flowers. The next layer of the card is a stripe from Simple Stories SN@P Color Vibe. I cut the kraft layer at 2 3/4" x 5 1/2" and stamped a sentiment from the older MCT set, Floral Sentiments.
Build a Pretty Flower is filled with all sorts of stamps that have layers to give your flowers dimension. I decided to stamp the main layer of my flowers first with Hero Arts Pale Tomato Ink and then added the next layer with Red Royal Ink. For the outline layer and the stems, I thought it would be fun to heat emboss them with white embossing powder. I then colored in the leaves and the center of the flowers with Copic markers.

Now, for this tag, I used the other set we are sneaking today, called Pretty Spring Wreaths. To make this tag, I first took some water color paper and painted it using some old Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores and Simply Charteuse re-inkers. Then I used one of the dies from from MCT's Tag Dies to cut my tag. Pretty Spring Wreaths comes with three different wreath bases, and then there are lots of different flowers and other embellishments that you can use with them. I stamped my base with Hero Arts Cup O' Joe ink and then added some flowers with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Fired Brick, Picked Raspberry, and Seedless Preserves. The sentiments are also from this stamp set.
