Hello everyone! It's the fourth and final day of the My Creative Time ~ Sneak Peek Week...the big reveal is tomorrow!!! Just wait until you see all the new products...they are all soooo great!!! Today, Emma & the My Creative Time Design Team are showcasing two new stamps sets and two new dies: 100% Sweetness, Classmate Valentines and the Stitched Lollipop Holder Die. (Pssst....and I just have to say...they are my favorite of all the new releases this week!)
So sit back, relax and enjoy ~ it's gonna be a long post LOL :) ~ I have 3 projects to show you:
Yesterday was my anniversary with my husband. We have been together for 14 years and married for 9! (YAY!). This is the card I made for him. And I just have to start by saying...there are sooo many things I love about this card...I don't even know where to begin!
All of the ink is Memento ~ Tuxedo Black and Ladybug Red. For the beautiful calendar, I used the My Creative Time ~ Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set and the XL Label Die. The "Happy Anniversary" at the top and the dashed lines at the top and bottom of the card are from the My Creative Time ~ Gift Card Sentiments stamp set.
In the bottom right corner of the calendar, I stamped a little "I Love You" which is from the My Creative Time ~ Mom You Rock stamp set. In the bottom right corner of the card is a heart from the My Creative Time ~ Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamp set and the "Be Mine" sentiment which is from the awesome new My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set. ("Be Mine" is a sweet little phrase my husband always says to me. I just LOVE that it's a stamp in this new set! And he is gonna love that I included it on this card!)
But...my most favorite part of this new 100% Sweetness stamp set is that it comes with a Heart die included! Emma is giving the Stitched Heart Die away for FREE this month in celebration of her 1 yr anniversary of her product line! And the "love" that fills the heart is one of the stamps in the set!!!! Isn't it just beautiful?!? My absolute favorite things about Emma's products are how much thought she puts into her designs and how well all the products mix together!! Thanks Emma!!!
What's better than a whole lotta LOVE and all the colors of the rainbow??? This awesome LOVE stamp is also from the new My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set. The paper for the scallop shapes is my favorite Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints and they are cut with the My Creative Time ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies. The small white stitched circle is from the My Creative Time ~ Build A Banner Kit and the heart stamped in the center is from the My Creative Time ~ Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamp set. Along the top and bottom border is a sweet little "love you" stamp from the My Creative Time ~ This and That stamp set.
Here are some close up shots:
For the black background, I used the Cuttlebug ~ Polka Dots embossing folder to give it some dimension. I also used pop dots behind each LOVE flower. All the ink is Memento ~ Tuxedo Black.
Drumroll please......May I introduce the My Creative Time ~ Stitched Lollipop Holder Die!!!! Isn't it fabulous?!? Now, you may notice that for this project, I did something a little different. Instead of using it for lollipops, I used it to make place cards for Thanksgiving to go with my awesome turkey centerpiece that I posted last week (seen here).
Aren't they sooo cute?? I think after the Gift Card Holder Die...this is gonna be my new favorite!!! My brain is just swimming with all kinds of ideas on what it can be used for.
For these little place cards, the patterned paper is from the Die Cuts With a View ~ Harvest Gathering paper stack. The solid color cardstock is Bazzill.
Here are some close up shots:
All of the ribbon is Celebrate It ~ Sheer Creations. In the center is a Recollections ~ pearl. And all the names I printed from my computer. I may put a little chocolate mint inside, but I haven't gotten that far yet.
Aren't they soooo cute?? I just love them! You won't believe how easy it is to use this die! It makes treat giving so super simple. It's definitely a must have. But then again....I think that's true of all of Emma's product line ;)
