MCT 48 Hour Flash Sale Blog Hop!

Good morning and welcome to another "48 Hour Flash Sale Blog Hop!"  Today we have a special FLASH sale going on because we have two new items that are available for sale NOW!  Since we just celebrated our 5 year anniversary, Emma thought, "Why should we end the party now... right?"

Don't forget to use the code FLASH at checkout to receive 20% off your ENTIRE (in-stock) purchase!  Sale is happening NOW (Friday, 2/5/16), and will end on Sunday, 2/7/16, at 7 AM PST.

Now, you should have arrived here from the very talented Jessica.  If you just happened upon here, you might want to head over to Emma's blog, to the beginning of the hop.  

We have two brand new items to celebrate this sale!  First is an adorable new stamp and die set called Mad for Plaid.  I used the stamps from this set to create my plaid background piece.  There are solid stripes in various widths, and then I masked off my cardstock with post-it tape to make an even wider light pink stripe as part of my pattern.  After making my piece, I used one of the Stitched Belly Band Dies to cut a heart in the center and make a shaker card.  The sentiment behind the clear cardstock is from Belly Band Sentiments.

On this next card I used the second new set, a die set called Stitched Hearts Background.  You can see where I used the fun die that created an embossed string of hearts across my card.  I also used a couple of the heart dies included in the set to cut my larger hearts from patterned paper.  I used the 4x4 Journal Die + More for the teeny hearts!  The sentiment is from Puffy Hearts Just for You.

Here is a closer look at both of the new sets:
