MCT 50th Edition Release Sneak Peek #1

Are you ready for another fabulous week of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  These are just in time to add to your Christmas list!  Today we are sneaking a fabulous new die set called Mini Greetings.  It includes 8 phrases in a sweet font in an adorable little size.


Since Christmas is just around the corner, I knew I'd be needing some thank you notes.  I love to make 4-bar size thank you cards (3 1/2" x 5"), and the little "thanks" die from Mini Greetings is just perfect for this!  I smushed some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Seedless Preserves, on my craft sheet, and then used a watercolor brush to paint a background on a 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface Paper.  I distressed the edges of this piece with a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser before adhering it to kraft card base.  I then added the "thanks" die cut and some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.


I used the same technique for the second card, adding in Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, and Mustard Seed distress inks.

*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...
