MCT 34th Edition Release Blog Hop


It's here!  Today is the day you can get a really good look at the fun My Creative Time goodies we've been showcasing this week and put in your order!  If you just happened upon my blog, you might want to head over to Emma's blog, which is the beginning of the hop.

For my card today I made a background by stamping the new Grainy Wood Background  in brown ink on kraft cardstock.  I just love this background stamp!


Next I went through my patterned paper scraps, pulled out a rainbow of bright colors, and cut banners using the new Stitched Decorative Banners dies.  I adhered them to the background with a little bit of adhesive and then secured them with some stitching across the tops.


I used one of the fonts from the new Alpha Pack to create my sentiment, heat embossing it with white embossing powder.  The arrow was die cut with a die from Sttiched Round Tab, Arrow & Tag Dies and the teeny stars were cut with dies from 4x4 Journal Die + More.

Here's a closer look at the three sets I used on today's card.  All of them are available for purchase now in the My Creative Time Store




** Freebie Stamp **


Emma is offering this "DREAM BIGGER" stamp to the FIRST 100 shoppers!  YEP, you heard that right, this stamp will go to the FIRST 100 shoppers for FREE!  You do NOT have to add it to your cart; Emma and her shipping crew will automatically include it in your package, but ONLY to the first 100 shoppers!  IF you happen to come through AFTER the 100th shopper, no worries because this will be available for sale! Emma knows there will be questions on whether YOU made the first 100.  After the first 100 shoppers come through, then you will see this set available for purchase along with the new release items!
