My Creative Time ~ February Stamp Release - BLOG HOP

Hello everyone!  What a great Sneak Peek Week...don't ya think?!?  Now it's time for the BEST part . . . the BLOG HOP!  If you came here from the super talented Amy's blog, then you are in the right place.  If not, then make sure you go back to My Creative Time so that you can start at the beginning with Emma.  You don't want to miss a thing!

For my project today, I get to showcase the new My Creative Time ~ Happy Hunting stamp set.  Many of you probably know me enough by now . . .  to know that I can't help but to also include other stamp sets & dies - because ALL of Emma's products work so perfectly together.  So here is a complete list of all the My Creative Time stamp sets I used in my project today:

XL Label Die

Here is my super fun Birthday Bouquet:


Sorry for the weird picture, it was hard to get a good close shot with the whole thing in it.  I will have some closer shots down below and if you want a closer look - click on the picture to enlarge it.  It looks way cooler in real life!!

So in case you can't tell - I don't have one favorite color . . . I love the WHOLE entire rainbow.  :)  And that's one of the reasons why I just love this new Happy Hunting stamp set. It includes the most perfect sentiment, so I thought I would show you a different look using this great sentiment stamp besides the Easter projects I have been showing you this week.


Isn't this sentiment perfect?  "Wishing your day is colorful, bright & cheerful"  I just LOVE it!  I used the MCT ~ XL Label Die that I cut in half.  For the border, I used the MCT ~ Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set.  And I stamped the sentiment from the MCT ~ Happy Hunting stamp set  with Technique Tuesday black ink.  The bow is made with the most beautiful Celebrate It ~ 360 ribbon.

Moving up the bouquet, you can see that I used the heart die from the MCT ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set.  I used Recollections ~ white cardstock and the pretty flower background stamp from the MCT ~ Spring Chicken Backgrounds stamp set.  I stamped one in each color using Technique Tuesday ~ red, orange, yellow, green, blue & purple ink.  


Continuing up the bouquet, you can see that I used the MCT ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies.  The patterned paper for the scallop shape is from the Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints collection (the reverse side from the polka dots).  The white cardstock is Recollections.  Inside the circles, I used the MCT ~ All Around Birthday Time stamp set "Happy Birthday" & "Sweet Birthday Wishes" sentiments.  I used the same Technique Tuesday ~ red, orange, yellow, green, blue & purple ink.  In the center, I added matching buttons threaded with white floss tied in a cute little bow.  


Also in the bouquet are colored hearts cut with the heart die in the MCT ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set.  The awesome polka dot paper is my favorite Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints.


You can also see if you look closely some fun little coiled wires with pretty little iridescent flowers attached to some of the leaves.  Now I have to admit (just so you don't give me too much credit) . . . this whole little tree with the cute little fence at the bottom - I bought from Michaels.  It was an Easter tree with little eggs all over it.  But the minute I saw it, I knew I wanted to do something different with it.  So, I got out my handy dandy Tim Holtz ~ Tonic scissors that can cut ANYTHING and I snipped off all the little eggs.  And in their place I put all the little hearts & scallop flowers.  Then voila . . . a super cute Birthday Bouquet!  I really hope the cuteness shows through.


Well, that's it for me.  I hope you love my fun birthday bouquet.  ;)   Now let's talk about the good stuff...
