Hello everyone! So how did you like the Sneak Peeks this week? Isn't this a fun release?! Well, if you arrived here from the incredibly 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!
Ok, for my projects today I wanted to show you two totally different ways to use the same die.
So can you tell which I die I used in both projects???? It's the banner die that is included in the brand new My Creative Time ~ Fly Away With Me Sentiments stamp set!! Let's take a closer look.
The pretty blue background paper is from the SEI ~ A Fair Day collection. The white, black, and grey cardstock are all from Recollections. And the pretty blueish-green glitter paper is from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Cafe' Mediterranean cardstock stack.
This super cute plane stamp is from the brand new My Creative Time ~ Fly Away With Me Stamps. The die to cut out the base of the plane is from the brand new My Creative Time ~ Fly Away With Me Dies. These are two different sets, but believe me you are gonna want these dies!!! It's so much easier than cutting them out by hand. Isn't it cute?? I actually stamped the plane twice, once on the grey cardstock and then again on white cardstock so that I could cut out the windows and paper piece them onto the plane base.
Here is a close-up of the banner. Isn't it just perfect?!? It's actually two dies that layer together. The banner dies are included in the My Creative Time ~ Fly Away With Me Sentiments stamp set. And this "Have a good trip!" sentiment is also in that set. If you look closely, you can see that the banner is a little wavy. I love that! Especially Emma's signature stitching lines. CUTE!! The bow is made with The Twinery ~ Caribbean twine. (I think that's the smallest bow I have ever tied LOL). I also used some pop dots behind the plane and the banner for a little extra dimension.
This fun cruise ship is cut from the Life Is A Beach ~ Cricut Cartridge. If you look closely, you might be able to see that I used some chalk to color in the smokey trail from the smoke stacks on the ship.
The "Bon Voyage" sentiment is from the brand new My Creative Time ~ Fly Away With Me Sentiments stamp set. I also used the alphabet stamps in the My Creative Time ~ Anyday BINGO & Crossword stamp set to spell out "Alaska". My mom is going on an Alaskan cruise at the end of this month, so I'm sending this to her to wish her lots of fun. Also, in this picture you can see one of the cute little clouds from the cloud dies in the My Creative Time ~ Fly Away With Me Dies. All of the ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
Ok, now for the fun part! Can you tell how I used the banner die differently in this fun project? I used them to make tails for the Happy Birthday ribbons on these cupcakes. Isn't that fun??? Here are some close up shots:
All of the patterned papers for these ribbons are from Doodlebug Designs ~ Petite Prints. The solid color papers are either Recollections or Bazzill. The ribbons are made with the My Creative Time ~ Scallop & Stitched Circles Dies and the fun banner dies from the My Creative Time ~ Fly Away With Me Sentiments stamp set. All of the cute circular sentiments are from the My Creative Time ~ All Around Birthday Time stamp set. The cute little candles are from Jolee's Boutique.
And for a slightly different theme - how about this one:
If any of you still have some graduation ceremonies coming up, how about these??? The sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ All Around Everything stamp set and the fun little graduation hat and diploma are from the My Creative Time ~ All Around Everything Accessories stamp set.
Well my creative friends, that's it for me. I hope you enjoyed the two different takes on the super fun banner dies. Don't be afraid to 'think outside the box' and try something new. You never know what kinda of crafty goodness you will come up with! :)
