MCT 77th Edition Release & Blog Hop!

Welcome to the My Creative Time 77th 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!


As soon as I saw these new sets, I knew I wanted to use them to make a card for my mom's birthday!  I decided to die cut the Tulip Frame Die out of Strathmore Watercolor cardstock, and then I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to watercolor it.  After die cutting the frame die again out of a square made with one of the Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out, I nestled the watercolored piece inside of that cut.  To give it a little more dimension, I die cut the separate tulip flowers that are included in this set and added them on top. I added a sentiment from Springtime Smiles, a few Papertrey Ink Rainstones, and that was it!  So easy, but that frame die really packs a punch!

Here's a closer look at Tulip Frame Die and Springtime Smiles.  They are available now in the My Creative Time Store
