MCT 45th Edition Sneak Peek #3


It's day 3 of our July My Creative Time sneak peeks, and we have a darling new stamp and die set today that is just perfect for summer cards:  You're a Great Catch!  For my card, I made a background using some Tim Holtz distress inks in Peacock Feather, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire on watercolor paper, cutting it out with one of the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies.  I then created a little scene using 4 of the 7 dies included in this set, coloring them my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  There are also two different wave dies and a bubble die, which you'll see on a project later this week.  The sentiment, which I heat embossed with white embossing powder before inking up my background, is one of many fun sentiments included in the set.

*Sneak Peek Giveaway***

We will be giving away the sets we are showcasing each day to ONE lucky winner!  For example, for the set we showcase on Wednesday, Emma will announce the winner in her video on Thursday, and for the set we showcase on Thursday, she will announce on Friday, and so on...
