MCT 42nd Edition Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Creative Time 42nd Edition 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 project today, I created a fun 3-D hot air ballon with new The Sky is the Limit stamp and die set.  I first die cut the balloon in kraft and stamped the coordinating stamp on it.  I then die cut it three more times out of the rainbow chevron pattern and trimmed off the basket.  I scored each of these down the center and sewed them together down the score line.  After adhering the bottom of the three to the kraft balloon, I folded up the top two layers to get the 3-D effect!

The layers on my card base were made with the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More, and I stamped a sweet sentiment from The Sky is the Limit onto the patterned layer. Some cute puffy clouds made with the new Fun Stitched Cloud Dies finished it off!

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

The Sky is the Limit

Fun Stitched Clouds

**Freebie Stamp**

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!
