MCT 17th Edition May Stamp Release Blog Hop!


Welcome to the May My Creative Time Stamp Release Blog Hop!  Did you stop by Emma's blog today to see if you were one of her lucky winners?  She has outdone herself once again this month, with lots of fun new stamps and dies.  They are all on sale until midnight tonight at the My Creative Time Online Shoppe!

For my card today, I am showcasing the Here's Lookin' At You stamp and die set.  I started with an A2 size kraft card base, and I used a black gel pen to create a frame, leaving room for my sentiment.


I used the stitched tie die to create my ties.  The polka-dotted patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink.  I used my Cricut Imagine All Wrapped Up cartridge to print the green patterned paper, and I popped that tie up with dimensional adhesive.


I love the fonts and the sentiments on this stamp set!


I stamped "Happy Father's Day" on the inside of the card.  Clean and simple for my dad!

Products used on this card:

Here's the entire Here's Lookin' At You set:
