My Creative Time August Sneak Peek #1


Can you believe it's already time for more My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Emma has come up with another really fun release!  Today we are sneaking a stamp set that a lot of people have been asking for:  Fun Vertical Greetings.  This set has six fun vertical sentiments that are designed to be used on the the Embossed Gift Card Holder!  They are perfect for when you decorate the gift card holder with the opening to the side instead of at the top.  I used the "Happy B-Day" sentiment for my project today, and it worked perfectly!  Of course, these sentiments could be used on other projects as well.


To make my presents, I used the largest of the Stitched Decorative Banner Dies, and then ran each banner cut through the Vagabond a second time, cutting the diagonal side of the banner with the straight side of the banner die.  I "tied" them together with some twine and added a little bone made with a die from Loyal Friends.


The cute little puppy and his bandana were also made with dies from Loyal Friends.  To get the woodgrain background on the front of the gift card holder, I stamped it with the Grainy Wood Background and Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

***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...

  28. Oh my gosh, that little pup is adorable. My MCT Loyal Friends set is in the mail to me as I type this. I ordered it over the weekend; but now I'm seeing this grainy wood background and saying whoa! And the way you used those banner dies as the gifts . . . what a way to stretch your dies. Nicely done.
