My Creative Time - September Release - BLOG HOP

Hello everyone!  And welcome to the My Creative Time  September Release  Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from Liz's blog then you are in the right place.  If not, then go here to start at the beginning...you don't want to miss a thing.  :)  

For my project today, I am showcasing, the "Whimsical Calendar Days"  stamp set and the "XL Label Die".  I am so glad I had the opportunity to show you this set again so that you can see how versatile this set can be.  This card is a totally different look than the one I did on Wednesday.  Here is my final project for the week:


The white cardstock is from Recollections.  The pretty snowflake patterned paper in the background is from the Echo Park Paper Co. ~ Wintertime paper collection.  For the snowy hills, I used the Divine Swirls ~ Cuttlebug folder to emboss white cardstock.  And then I added some Star Dust ~ Stickles to give it that snowy sparkle. 


The circles for the snowman are cut from the George & Basic Shapes ~ Cricut cartridge.  The top hat is cut from the A Child's Year ~ Cricut cartridge.  I added some white stitching with a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  The super cute face is stamped with the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Winter Face Assortment stamp set.  And I used colored pencils to color in the carrot nose and corncob pipe.  Oh...and did you notice that I used real twigs for the snowman's arms?  Too cute, right ?!  LOL


For the sentiment, I used the "Gift Card Sentiments" stamp set and the "Stitched Oval Die" released last month.  For the ink, I used Memento ~ Tuxedo Black and Ladybug Red.  The calendar is of course from the "Whimsical Calendar Days" stamp set.  And it is stamped on the image cut with the "XL Label Die".  Here are the pictures of these two new releases:




And guess what you lucky duckies:

***************************************
GIVEAWAY ALERT

Well, that's it my friends.  I was the last stop on this super fun Blog Hop.  What did you think?  Wasn't it great?  Just in case you missed anyone, here is the lineup again:


I hope you had a wonderful time.  This has just been the best week ever!!!  Being a Guest Designer with Emma and her FABULOUS design team has been an absolute blast and it is something I will never forget.  THANKS again to EMMA for such a great opportunity.  THANKS to all of the DESIGN TEAM members for all of your wonderful support.  And THANKS to all of YOU for making it all the way to the end of the hop to visit me on my last day with these wonderful and talented ladies.  I hope you have enjoyed my creations this week.  I sure enjoyed making them.  And I loved sharing them with you all.

Hope to see you back here again real soon :)  Now hurry up and go shopping!  You don't want to miss out on all these GREAT new stamps and dies.  Happy crafting my friends.
