This is my 2nd post for the day...Wahoo! To see my Guest Designer post for "Obsessed with Scrapbooking" click here.
Hello everyone! It's time for the My Creative Time ~ November Stamp Release. Woot! Woot! For those of you who may be new to this, during the 3rd week of the month Emma releases her newest sets of stamps and dies. But before the big reveal, Emma and the Design Team get to tease you with some super fun Sneak Peeks. This month, we will be doing the Sneak Peeks on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - with the big reveal in a two day Blog Hop on Thursday and Friday. So are you ready??? Here we go...
For Day 1 of Sneak Peek Week, we are showcasing two "font-abulous" new font sets: the Circle Font & the Label Font. And I just couldn't help myself, so I made a project for each. ;)
First up the brand new Circle Font:
I know this is a bit more than a Sneak Peek...lol...I just had to show you the whole alphabet!!! ;) As always, Emma is a total rockstar - because she made this Circle Font so that it would fit perfectly into the little stitched circle die from the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit!!! The ribbon is from my scraps, but it's some of my favorite so I remember that I got it a Walmart. The button is from my stash and I threaded it with white ~ DMC Floss to tie a little bow.
The black and the white cardstock are both from Recollections. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival ink. The little red heart is from the MCT ~ Anyday BINGO & Crossword stamp set. The ink for that is red ~ Technique Tuesday ink. To highlight the "HI", I colored in those circles with a red ~ Prismacolor Pencil and then blended it with Odorless Mineral Spirits. For some fun, I added pop dots underneath each circle for dimension.
Ok, next up - the brand new Label Font:
I just love how this came out!! I can see hand-made Christmas Tags in my future this year!!! This tag is cut with the MCT ~ Tag Dies. The paper for it is from the Simple Stories ~ Handmade Holiday collection. The crinkle ribbon is from my stash. And the bow is made with Hemp Twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.
Isn't the Label Font AWESOME???? I just LOVE it!!! The cute Santa jacket is from the MCT ~ All Around Accessories stamp set. I colored it in with a red ~ Prismacolor Pencil and then blended it with Odorless Mineral Spirits. I added Glossy Accents to the belt and Star Dust ~ Stickles to the trim on the jacket. I added pop dots for dimension of course...you can never have too many pop dots...lol. The white tags that the "Secret Santa" is stamped on . . . well, that's a Sneak of a Sneak Peek. You will have to wait until later in the week to hear about that one. ;)
Well, I hope you loved both of my little projects for today! You are going to love this release...it's so much fun!!!
