MCT 45th Edition Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Creative Time 45th 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!


I have two cards for you today.  This first one uses the adorable You're a Great Catch stamp and die set.  For my card base, I used a cut from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge.  Then I took the water layer and trimmed it with one of the darling stitched wave dies included in You're a Great Catch.  There are actually two different water dies in this set!  Next I stamped the fish, bubbles, and plant and colored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens before die cutting them with the coordinating dies.  After adhering them to the card, I added some Glossy Accents to the bubbles and the fish's eye.  The cute little sentiment is just one from this set!


My next card was made using the darling little Find Joy in the Little Things stamp and die set, which is yours FREE if you are one of the first 150 shoppers today (more info below).  I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored it with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  I created a frame for the image using one of the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies and a couple of the Stitched Oval Dies.  I also used a die from Vintage Stitched Label for my sentiment.  There are THREE sweet little sentiments included in this freebie set!  Finally, I stamped, colored, and die cut two little fish and added them to the card.  The fish dies are included in Find Joy in the Little Things!

Here's a closer look at You're a Great Catch.  It is available for purchase now in the My Creative Time Store



Our "Freebie" for this release is this adorable "Find Joy in the Little Things" stamp and die set.  It will be given to the FIRST 150 shoppers!  If you are one of the first 150 shoppers, it will be automatically added to your package at the time of packaging/shipping.  Once the first 150 shoppers come through, the die will be available for purchase.  So if it's for sale in the store, you are not one of the 150.  No exceptions will be made.  This freebie die is not a part of the "bundle" and will be sold separately!
