Hello everyone! It's that time of month again . . . no not that time . . . hee hee. It's time for the My Creative Time ~ January Product Release! If you're new to all this fun, here are the details: every month, Emma with My Creative Time releases brand new stamp sets and dies. And she and the Design Team get to tease you with "Sneak Peeks" for four days with the the big reveal being on Friday. Oh . . . and of course there are giveaways too! ;)
So today is Day 1 of Sneak Peek Week and the My Creative Time ~ Design Team will be showcasing projects with 3 new sports stamp sets: Fast Pitch Rocks, Grand Slam and Soccer. For my project today, I am using Fast Pitch Rocks.
Isn't she a cutie?!?! I knew I was gonna love this stamp set the minute I saw it. I actually played softball for 12 years when I was younger . . . 3rd base baby!! Boy, those were the days. If I tried to play now, I'm sure it wouldn't take me long to pull a hamstring or throw my back out. LOL
Ok, back to the card. The solid color cardstock is from Recollections. The really cool patterned paper in the background is from the Me & My Big Ideas ~ CHAMPS paper stack. My cute little All-Star Softball player is cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls ~ Cricut cartridge. The red striped paper for her jersey is from Doodlebug Designs ~ Petite Prints (the reverse side). Her super cute face is from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Winter Wonderland Face Assortment. I used a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll pen for her eyes and a little pen work on her hat and shoes. I also used a black ~ Zig Writer pen for some pen work on her jersey. And I added a little chalk for her cheeks.
In the upper left corner of the card, I used the My Creative Time ~ XL Label Die and the My Creative Time ~ Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set for the border. And as you can see, I cut the label in half. Inside, I used the My Creative Time ~ Fast Pitch Rocks stamp set for the fun phrase.
In the bottom left corner of the card, I used the My Creative Time ~ Sports Sentiments stamp set for the "All Star". The little stars are from the My Creative Time ~ My Little Firecracker stamp set.
In the bottom right corner of the card, I used the My Creative Time ~ Fast Pitch Rocks stamp set for the "Softball". All of the ink for the card is either Memento ~ Tuxedo Black or Technique Tuesday ~ Red ink.
I just love her!!! I hope you do too.
