MCT April Sneak Peek #2


Are you ready for another day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  There are two new sets being showcased today, and I'm sneaking the new Way to Go set!  You will just love this set:  an adorable bike with so many fun layers, plus lots of coordinating sentiments!  For my card today I created a scene using a tree from the Cricut Just Because Cards cartridge, cut at 12.3".  I stamped the foliage with the soccer ball from the MCT Soccer stamp set and embossed the trunk with Papertrey Ink's Woodgrain Impression Plate.  The grass was made with MCT's Stitched Grass Die.


Isn't this bike from Way to Go just the cutest thing ever???  I decided to put flowers in the basket, but there are dies for other options as well.  To make the books on the bike rack, I cut the bike rack out of four colors and then just trimmed off the bottom part and cut off the edges to make various "sizes" of books.


The sentiment is made up of two stamps from the set.  There are lots of mix and match options.  I made the sun with the MCT Build a Banner Kit.

***Sneak Peek Giveaway!***
We will be giving away the sets we are showcasing each day to ONE lucky winner!  For example, for the set we showcase on Wednesday, Emma will announce the winner in her video on Thursday, and for the set we showcase on Thursday, she will announce on Friday, and so on...
ALL you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment on our blogs!  You are NOT required to comment on EVERY SINGLE blog, but the more you comment on, the better chance you have of winning!  VERY IMPORTANT, please leave your contact information with your comment, just in case "YOU" are the lucky winner!  For extra entries, you can spread the word about this release on Facebook, tweet about it, OR even instagram it! #mycreativetime!  GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY, & let's start spreading the word!
