Hello everyone! What a super fun Sneak Peek Week! Isn't this such a cute release??? There's a little something for everyone - coffee, tea or hot chocolate - I just love it!! Well, 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. In 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 am showcasing the new My Creative Time ~ Tea Party stamp set. And this time, I wanted to show you something completely different so that you can see how versatile this set can be:
Ok, so I'm back to my favorite rainbows :) they are just so cheerful - I love it! Anyway, the white, the black and the gray cardstock are from Recollections. If you look closely, you can see that I embossed the gray background piece with the Polka Dots ~ Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.
The cute little cupcake or muffin stamp is from the new My Creative Time ~ Tea Party stamp set. The super fun candle embellishments are from Jolee's Boutique. Aren't they so fun?? I just had to get them. They are the perfect size for my little cupcakes here. I colored in the chocolate frosting for the cupcakes with Prismacolor ~ Pencils and then blended it with Odorless Mineral Spirits for a smoother look.
The perfect "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ Polka Dot "Surprise" stamp set. The polka dots in the "Happy" match perfectly with the embossed background!! Love it! (to get a closer look - click on the picture to enlarge it) All the ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
For the rainbow in the center, I simply used Prismacolor ~ pencils and then blended with Odorless Mineral Spirits again for that smoother look. I just love doing that...looks almost like watercolors rather than pencils and it's really easy to do..so give it a try. I got my OMS at Walmart for pretty cheap. And you will find it in the paint section of the store, not the crafts section. Hope that helps. :)
If you look closely at the little white squares, you can see that I inked the edges with the different colors of the rainbow to match the particular candle. All of the inks are Technique Tuesday. Also, I used some pop dots behind the squares as well for some extra dimension.
Well my creative friends, I hope you enjoyed this bright and cheerful birthday card. And just in case you happen to be one of those people who don't really drink coffee, tea or hot chocolate, I wanted you to see a different look with these stamps. Once again . . . this release is a MUST HAVE!!! Emma so totally ROCKS doesn't she?!?! :)
