MCT 32nd Edition Release Blog Hop

It's the My Creative Time May Release Blog Hop!  I hope you arrived here from Emma's blog!  If not, be sure to head back there, so you don't miss a bit of the fun!  There are so many wonderful new stamp and die sets being released this month!  For today's hop, I'm showcasing Live, Love, Laugh, and be Happy, Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies, Build a Scripty & Watercolor Background, and Bunches of Fun Circles Dies.


I made a shaped card using the fun wavy circle from the Bunches of Fun Circles Dies.  To get the cool pattern on it, I stamped it with the watercolor stamps from Build a Scripty & Watercolor Background  with Seedless Preserves distress ink.  Then I inked over the whole thing with that same color ink with a blending tool (it was white paper to start).  The center paper was light blue, and I stamped the script stamp from Build a Scripty & Watercolor Background on it with Versamark ink.  The sentiment is from an older MCT set, Many Greetings.


Aren't these butterflies gorgeous???  I cut them out of white paper, using the Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies.  Then I stamped them with the coordinating stamps from Live, Love, Laugh and be Happy, again using Seedless Preserves distress ink, and inking up the full die-cuts.  Then I stamped the little butterfly "trail" with Versafine ink.

Here's a look at these new sets that I used today, available now in the My Creative Time Store!
