My Creative Time ~ Sneak Peek : Day 1 June Release

Hello everyone!  Yippee . . . it's that time of the month again! It's time for the My Creative Time ~ June Product Release!!!  For those of you who may be new, Emma with My Creative Time releases her newest stamps during the 3rd week of every month.  And before the big reveal, Emma and the MCT ~ Design Team whip up some fabulous Sneak Peeks for your inspiration.  Are you ready?  Let the fun begin!

This month there are 3 new sets for your viewing pleasure: Fly Away With Me & Fly Away With Me Sentiments & Fly Away With Me Dies. Half of us will be you showing you sneak peeks today and the other half tomorrow.  The super fun Blog Hop will be on Thursday, June 21st.

This release is just so cute, that I had to make two cards for you today.  The best part is that there are so many sentiments in this set.  And the way that Emma designed them ~ they can easily be mixed and matched.  The two sentiments that I am showing you today are "Flying by to say ..." & "Hi"

Yes!  Yes!  Yes!  All of that crafty goodness comes from all the different dies in this set!  Can I get a WOOT WOOT?    ;)

The white, black and grey cardstock are all from Recollections. The pretty blue sky paper is from the SEI ~ A Fair Day collection.

Isn't this plane so cute?  The plane is a die in this set and the stamped plane image fits perfectly inside.  For this little plane, I actually stamped it twice - once on grey and once on white cardstock.  Then I cut out the little white windows and added them to the grey plane base.  This just gives it a little fun dimension.

That cloud die is just so perfect!  There are actually two size clouds in this set.  For this card, I used the smaller cloud.  The paper for the cloud is from the beautiful shimmery Coredinations ~ Gemstone collection.  In my silliness, I used the "Hi" stamp to look like the plane wrote "Hi" in the sky.  I hope you can tell.  I had to do it about a billion times before I like how it all looked...lol...and it's still a little crooked.  Oh well. If you look closely, you can see that the "Hi" underneath the cloud has a little Recollections ~ Pearl to dot the "i".

Here are two of the 27 different sentiment stamps in this set - "Flying by to say..." & "Hi".   The ink for all the stamping is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.

I used various size pop dots underneath the plane and a couple of the clouds for some extra dimension.  Simple, but cute I think.   :)

For my next card, I did some fun paper piecing:

I know!  I know!  Super fun right?  Don't you just love this hot air balloon?  Have you ever been on one?  It's on my Bucket List...hopefully some day!

Ok, for those of you who don't know what "paper piecing" is, I will see if I can explain it.  What I did was stamp this hot air balloon image onto 5 different papers: the red, yellow and blue patterned papers are Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints; the solid red cardstock is Recollections and the kraft cardstock for the basket is also Recollections.  I used the hot air balloon die in this set to cut out the background.  Then I also stamped the image onto the white Recollections cardstock as well.  

Now for the fun part:  I cut out each piece individually - thus, "paper piecing".  It's really not that hard!  The toughest part is deciding on your colors and design.  Then you adhere them all down using the base image on the white piece as your guide. Kinda like putting a puzzle together.  EASY PEASY as Emma would say!  ;)

Here's a good shot of the two different sizes of clouds.  Aren't they perfect?  If you look closely, you can see that for some of the clouds I used plain white Recollections cardstock and then some of the other clouds are from the Coredinations ~ Gemstone collection cardstock.  Don't you just love Emma's signature stitching around the edges?  Perfect touch!

And here is a close up of the same sentiments.  These are only 2 of the 27 sentiments that come in this set!!!  All mix-n-match ~ you are gonna love it!!!

The pretty sky blue background is the same as the first card. It's from the SEI ~ A Fair Day collection.  You can see that once again I used different size pop dots for dimension.  And now for the BEST part:

I put the hot air balloon on an Action Wobble!!!!  Isn't that sooooo cool?!?!?!

Well my creative friends, that's it for me today.  Hope you liked all the fun.  Don't you just want to go on vacation now?  LOL

Beautiful cards! You ALWAYS do such a FANTASTIC job :) The airplane is so stinkin' cute. I know my 2 year old son would just love it. What I love about the hot air balloon card is that some of the clouds are popped up and the others aren't -- what a great idea!

Thanks so much for sharing!

I love these whimsical new images. Darling pearl accent on the "i". Don't worry about the "hi" being crooked...Sky writers are impressive, but they're never perfect either! Love the paper piecing with the slight white border, too. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Crafty Pink Butterfly said...

I love how you stamped all the hi's.

Danielle Lee said...

Both cards are really nice. I really like how the "Hi" trails behind the airplane. Thanks for sharing.


Scrappin with the bug said...

Beautiful cards. I love the way you made the smoke - great job.

Love the Hot Air Balloon card and the paper piercing. It's so pretty.
