My Creative Time June Sneak Peek #1


Are you ready? My Creative Time is releasing four brand new stamps sets this Friday! Be sure to stop by for our design team blog hop Friday morning to see them all in action! Today I'm giving you a sneak peek of a sentiment from the "Encouraging Quotes" set. I made my A2 sized card by first stamping the sweet sentiment on white cardstock and then using a ruler and pen to draw my frame. My watermelon is cut at 2 3/4" from the Preserves cartridge. After I cut it, I ran it through my Cuttlebug with a Papertrey Ink button die to create the bite out of it.

Don't forget! You have until Wednesday to take part in My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday Challenge and be eligible to win all 4 of Emma's stamp sets that are being released this Friday!!!

Also, if you comment on the sneak peek posts by Emma and the design team this week, or you share about Emma's new releases on Facebook or Twitter, you might win one stamp set of your choice!
