MCT 79th Edition "7 Year Anniversary" Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the My Creative Time 79th Edition Release Blog Hop!  This is Emma's 7 Year Anniversary!  It's hard to believe we've been enjoying her fabulous stamps and dies for that long!

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 project today, I took the new Circle Border Die and used it to trim the edge of my black card base.  I thought it would be fun to fill in the circles with pops of color, and I was able to do that using the large single circle die included in the set to make the circles that I adhered behind the small circular openings.  For the larger circular openings, I used a die from You Are Spot On.  To make the border really pop (and to give myself a place to write a message), I lined the inside of the card with a piece of white cardstock.

Next I heat embossed my sentiment, from the Script Words stamp set, with white embossing powder.  That adorable cake was made with the Baby Cake Die, our freebie this month (more info on that below).

Here's a closer look at Circle Border Die.  It is available now in the My Creative Time Store

Starting on Friday, May 18, 2018 @ 8AM PST, we will be giving away this ADORABLE new Baby Cake Die to the FIRST 50 shoppers!  If you are one of the first 50 shoppers, it will be automatically added to your package at the time of packaging/shipping.  Once 50 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 50.  No exceptions will be made.  This freebie set is not a part of the "bundle" and will be sold separately!
