MCT January Sneak Peek #4


It's our last day of My Creative Time January sneak peeks!  Have you made your wish list?  Today Emma and the design team are showcasing two new stamp and dies sets.  I've used one for my project today:  an adorable set called Best Bots Forever.  This is one of the cutest Valentine's sets ever, but I actually used it for a thank you note!  I made a card and matching envelope using the 3x3 Fancy Trifold Card Die and 3x3 Fancy Envelope Die, and decorated the card using the Stitched Message Bubble Dies and the Fun Speech Bubble Dies.


Now, that would have been a cute enough thank you card on its own, but how much more fun would it be to open it up and find a little puzzle?  To make this little cutie, I first cut the puzzle pieces with the new Stitched Puzzle Piece Dies (available tomorrow) and then stamped one of the adorable robots from Best Bots Forever.  Isn't he the cutest?  He comes with a coordinating die and a girlfriend too!  The sentiment is from My Favorite Sayings, and I found the stars in the  Trick or Treat stamp set.  I colored it all with Copic markers.

***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... ALL you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment on our blogs!  You are NOT required to comment on EVERY SINGLE blog, but the more you comment on, the better chance you have of winning!  VERY IMPORTANT, please leave your contact information with your comment, just in case "YOU" are the lucky winner!  For extra entries, you can spread the word about this release on Facebook, tweet about it, OR even instagram it! #mycreativetime!  GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY, & let's start spreading the word!

Also, we have ANOTHER very special giveaway this week:


Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have for you today!
