MCT 53 Edition Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Creative Time 53rd Edition Release Blog Hop!  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.  This is a very fun release, and I hope you are as excited about it as we are!


For my card today,  I used the new Fun Notes!  I just love this set!  I started by taking a 5" x 7" piece for my card base.  I then lay the "hello" die right near the bottom of it, and ran it through my Vagabond machine with the top plate only covering the bottom half of the die.  This way just the bottom part of "hello" was cut out, and I was able to use a straight edge and a craft knife to cut across on each side and between the letters.   I then stamped "hello" with the coordinating stamp and also stamped "sending you a little" from this same set.  I also added a few aqua hearts made with dies from Carved Heart.


To finish off the card I scored it at 3 1/2" from the bottom of the back side, and I added a 3/4" strip of patterned paper from Echo Park's Sunny Days Ahead across the bottom of the inside, so that it peaks behind the "hello" when the card is closed.

Here's a closer look at Fun Notes.  It is available now in the My Creative Time Store


Our "Freebie" for this release is this adorable "Mini Butterfly Dies".  It will be given to the FIRST 150 shoppers!  If you are one of the first 150 shoppers, it will be automatically added to your package at the time of packaging/shipping.  Once the first 150 shoppers come through, the set will be available for purchase.  So if it's for sale in the store, you are not one of the 150.  No exceptions will be made.  This freebie set is not a part of the "bundle" and will be sold separately!
