MCT 51st Edition Sneak Peek #2

We've got another day of My Creative Time sneak peeks today, and you will love the stamp set we are sneaking!  You Matter is fill of inspirational stamps in a big bold font.  These are perfect when you want to give a little encouragement to somebody you care about!


For my card, I splattered some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Ground Expresso onto my cream card base by smooshing some of the ink onto my craft mat, adding water to it with a watercolor brush, and then flicking the watercolor brush toward the paper.  Once it dried, I added the sentiment from You Matter, and then I created my cluster of stars.  I stamped some of them, using the solid star stamps from Hello Baby, and the outlined star stamps from Thanks for the Lift.  I pulled out some of my patterned paper scraps and made a variety of stars using the Bunch of Stitched Star Dies, adhering some of them with dimensional adhesive to give it more interest.
