My Creative Time ~ "Favorite Stamp of the Month"

Hello everyone!  And welcome to the newest My Creative Time  feature ~ "Favorite Stamp of the Month".  Once a month, Emma and the Design Team are going to feature an oldie but a goodie.  This month is the:  You Had Me At Chocolate stamp set.


If you own this stamp set, we would LOVE to see ANY old projects you have made or any NEW projects using this stamp set!  My Creative Time is having a "You Had Me At Chocolate" link party!  Please link up your projects HERE to Mr. Linky on My Creative Time's page.  If you do not own this set, it's your LUCKY day because it's on sale HERE!  Go pick up your set before they sell out!  We are ALL looking forward to seeing your projects!   ;)


So here is my new creation using the My Creative Time ~ You Had Me At Chocolate stamp set:

I made this beautiful flower for the top of this little gift box.  The flower is cut from the Flower Shoppe ~ Cricut cartridge.  All of the patterned papers are from the K & Company ~ KP Valentine paper stack

On the flower petals I stamped the "I Love You..." & "I Love You more..." sentiments from the MCT ~ You Had Me At Chocolate stamp set.  Get it?!?  Instead of "he loves me" - "he loves me not" I did "I Love You..." - "I Love You more..."  Don't you just love that?!?  ;)  Sometimes I crack myself up!  LOL

Anyway, the ink for the sentiments is Memento ~ Rich Cocoa ink.  Also, I inked the edges of all the petals in the flower with Color Box ~ Chestnut Roan ink.  In the center of the flower is a big brad from a 'really big brad' set I have.  Can't remember where I got them or the maker...sorry.  For a little vintage feel, I wrinkled many of the petals, as well as curled up many of the edges for dimension.

Here is a front side view.  The pretty ribbon is Paper Trey Ink ~ Berry Sorbet ribbon.

That's it!  These flowers are super fun and also easy to make.  If you don't have the Flower Shoppe ~ Cricut cartridge . . . I highly recommend it!!!

And for a little extra fun, I thought I would show you some past projects made with the My Creative Time ~ You Had Me At Chocolate stamp set:
