Hello everyone! Don't you just LOVE Sneak Peek Week??? This has been just the most beautiful release. Emma really outdid herself this time! If you came here from the super duper 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 projects today, I am showcasing the new My Creative Time ~ Bloom Where You Are Planted stamp set and also the new My Creative Time ~ Floral Sentiments stamp set. I am so super excited about this release, because it really inspired me to try out my Copic Markers. Make sure you let me know what you think! I'm still trying to figure it all out, but I just love how my roses turned out!
Since I think this stamp release is so amazingly BEAUTIFUL, I decided to go with a wedding theme for my projects today. What do you think?
Let's start with my all time favorite - the My Creative Time ~ Embossed Gift Card Holder Die. This is seriously the best thing ever invented!!! (Except of course for caller id...LOL...but I digress). All of the classic papers for these projects are from the Creative Imaginations ~ Simply Sentiments : Neutral 6x6 paper pad. The beautiful rose is from the brand new My Creative Time ~ Bloom Where You Are Planted stamp set. I colored it in with Copic ~ Sketch Markers. What do you think? Only my second time using them . . . but I think I'm addicted!! The beautiful "With Love" sentiment at the top is from the brand new My Creative Time ~ Floral Sentiments stamp set. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink. The "For your wedding" sentiment at the bottom is from the My Creative Time ~ More Gift Card Sentiments stamp set. I stamped it with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and white ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder. To finish it off, I added some Celebrate It ~ Wedding Collection Tulle and a couple of little red heart gems from my stash.
Next, how about a pretty little wedding favor. I made this with the My Creative Time ~ Bubblegum Treat Box Die. If you have never seen it before, it's absolutely awesome for little treats. But notice that I actually cut off one end to make it stand upright...just something a little different. I added another rose with some pop dots behind it for dimension and tied it shut with some tulle. Super simple! This would be perfect for some little chocolates or mints.
And finally, I have another little gift idea or even a little home decor item. I cut the frame from the Fancy Frames ~ Cricut cartridge. I added another beautiful rose with some tulle. And yes . . . that is a picture from my wedding! It will be 10 years this November. :) And just to give you a little perspective on size, the picture is actually a wallet size photo. These could be great little gifts at a wedding reception or maybe even little baby announcements. The ideas are endless!
Well my friends, I hope you liked my little wedding creations. Now for the good part...
