MCT July Sneak Peek #1


It's time for a week of sneak peeks of another fabulous My Creative Time release!!!  Today we are sneaking two awesome background stamps and a fun die!


I used the new Large Cloud Bubble Edge Die on this sweet birthday card for my dad.  I die cut "Happy" out of it using a die from Happy Thoughts and die cut it again out of patterned paper, and then nestled the patterned paper cut into the negative space.  The "birthday" sentiment is also from Happy Thoughts.


One of the new background stamps is an awesome woodgrain called Grainy Wood Background.  I stamped it on the fence that I made with one of the dies from Loyal Friends.  I've already used this stamp on a TON of projects!  The sweet little pup is also from Loyal Friends, and I made the grass with the Stitched Grass Die.


Now the second background stamp we are sneaking today is what I used to make this gorgeous alphabet background.  It's called Fun Letter Background.  I inked it up with Hero Arts Butter Bar ink and stamped it on Papertrey Ink Harvest Gold cardstock.  I love the look it created!  Both of the background stamps are really big so that you can use them on A2 cards that are orientated horizontally or vertically!


I made a little cluster of embellishments with some of my favorite My Creative Time products.  For the ticket, I used one of the Stitched Fun Ticket Dies, stamped it with an image from Holiday Tickets, added "goodbye" from Many Greetings, and then "summer" from Have Fun in the Sun.  The star was cut with one of the 3 Star Stitched Dies.  For the circle embellishment, the green circle was made with one of the dies from Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, the cream circle was made with the circle die from Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies, and it was stamped with a sentiment from All Around Everything and an apple from All Around Goodies.
