MCT 41st Edition Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the My Creative Time 41st Edition Anniversary Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from the very talented Jessica.  If you just happened upon here, you might want to head over to Emma's blog, to the beginning of the hop.  This is a very fun release, and I hope you are as excited about it as we are!


For my first project today, I made a card using the gerber daisy from Love YOU Bunches.  I stamped it in Black Versafine Ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I then watercolored it using some Tim Holtz distress inks.  The rectangles were all die cut with the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies, and I embossed my card base with the new Circle Stitching Pattern Dies.

The sentiment is also from Love YOU Bunches, stamped on a tag made with dies from the new Fun Stitched Tag Dies set!


For my second project, I made some fun stacked boxes that I found in the Silhouette Online Store.  I decorated the top box with pretty flowers using the new Jr. Rolled Flower Dies, along with leaves from the Stitched Pretty Flower & Leaves Dies.  


I love the new rolled flower dies.  They are so adorable in the smaller sizes!

Here's a closer look at the new sets I used on today's projects.  They are available for purchase now in the My Creative Time Store





**Freebie Stamp**


For our "Freebie" stamp for this release, we are giving away this ADORABLE stamp, "Every Little Thing..." to the FIRST 150 shoppers!  You do NOT have to add it to your cart; Emma and her shipping crew will automatically include it in your package, but ONLY to the first 150 shoppers!  IF you happen to come through AFTER the 150th shopper, no worries because this will be available for sale! Emma knows there will be questions on whether YOU made the first 150.  After the first 150 shoppers come through, then you will see this set available for purchase along with the new release items!  Just keep in mind, this stamp will not be included with the bundle.  It will be sold separately!
