My Creative Time - Sneak Peek Day 1 - November Release

Hello everyone!  Are you ready for some footballllll?  Oops LOL I mean - Are you ready for the My Creative Time ~ Sneak Peek Week?  It's a good one, just might be the best one yet!!  Let's get to it...

For today, the My Creative Time Design Team will be featuring two stamp sets:  Sports Sentiments and Touchdown.  Ok . . . now . . . ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALLLLL????


Aren't these just great???  For those of you with kiddos in sports - you are gonna love this release.  Using my all time favorite - the My Creative Time ~ Gift Card Holder Die, I made these great 'thank you' gifts for your team's coach.  The football is cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls ~ Cricut cartridge.    In order to give it that football texture, I embossed it with the Tiny Bubbles ~ Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I also added the stitching with a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll pen


The sentiment at the top is from the brand new My Creative Time ~ Sports Sentiments stamp set.  In the lower, right hand corner, I used the My Creative Time ~ Stitched Circle Die and the brand new My Creative Time ~ Touchdown stamp set.  For the ink, I used Memento ~ Rich Cocoa for the stamping and Colorbox ~ Chestnut Roan for the distressing around the edges of the gift card holder.  The cool ribbon/fibers are from my stash....doesn't it look like the hash marks on the football field??
