It's time for another awesome week of My Creative Time sneak peeks! I've got a lot to share with you today, because we are sneaking THREE of the new sets today! First off is a fun stamp and die set called Speech Bubble Sentiments. I used it on this graduation card for my son Eric. I can't believe that he is graduating from high school this week!
I started with a 4 1/4" x 11" blue card base and used the speech bubble die to trim off one end. I then made a red layer to adhere behind since red and that shade of blue are Eric's school colors. "Hello" is one of three word dies that comes with this set, and "graduate" is one of the many coordinating stamps! I die cut the graduation cap using a die from an older set, Here's Lookin' at You.
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment and "Class of 2014" from Follow Your Dreams. The diploma is also from Follow Your Dream. I stamped it onto white cardstock and then fussy cut around it before adhering it to the card. A little white stitching with a gel pen finished off the card!
For this next card, I am showcasing a beautiful watercolor stamp from the new Build a Scripty & Watercolor Background. Doesn't it make a gorgeous sky? This is a card for a teacher friend of mine who is packing up with her husband and moving halfway across the country to open up a restaurant in Colorado. I thought this sentiment from Way to Go was just perfect for them. The cute little bikes are also from Way to Go, and I cut the hills with one of the Fun Stitched Edges Dies.
Lastly, I have a little birthday card showcasing the new Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. You are going to love these unique dies! As you can see, the circles cut out with little dots around the edges, but if you use the negative, you get stitching! So fun!
For my background on this card, I used a watercolor technique that I learned from Tim Holtz in Online Card Classes' Watercolor for Card Makers, using his mini distress inks and a Heidi Swapp stencil. I then turned one of the circles cut with the new circle die into a cute little face using a Peachy Keen stamp and added a speech bubble with one of the MCT Stitched Square Speech Bubbles and a sentiment from Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments!
