It's our last day of  My Creative Time Sneaky Peeks, and we've got two GREAT ones to share with you today:   "Springtime in Paris" & "And Then Some".  Both these sets come with coordinating dies!!

I took on the "Springtime in Paris" set and made this lotion holder.  I found these mini lotion and shower gel bottles at Bath & Body Works and instantly knew they were perfect for this stamp set!  Isn't it a great gift!!  I'm loving the flourish stamps that come with this set  ~ add so much elegance to your projects.

 

Close up of box ~ sentiment stamp is from this set too!!  I used 2 label dies to make a "ribbon" banner look.

Day 3 ~ My Creative Time New Release

Hope you are enjoying the Sneaky Peeks so far.......this release is sooo much fun.

Today I am sneaking "Wishing You Were Here" & "Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves". The Wishing You were Here set is stamps and comes with coordinating dies.  Flowers & Leaves are straight die cuts and I LOVE them!!!  You may have seen last release where a couple of Design Team Ladies sneak peeked these for you!  I was a little unsure how to showcase the Wishing you were Here, but ended up loving the bench stamp with die!  I thought this was a perfect combo of stamps and dies to use on a CD calendar page for May.  Now I'll have to keep up with each monthly page as I go but this will not be a hard task with MCT products!!  Special bonus for you ~ here is the calendar to print for yourself here courtesy of Paper Crafts Magazine ~ enjoy!

Here is a close up of the flowers and leaves die cuts ~ I used the small flower stamps from Pretty Spring Wreaths to stamp in middle of die cut flowers, then added sprinkles.

Day 2 ~ Sneak Peek for MCT Release

Today I am showcasing "Main Street Stamp Set" and "Way To Go Stamp Set with coordinating dies".  I found this notebook on clearance at Michaels and knew I could cover the front flap with paper and do my own thing on it!  My daughter loves to write in notebooks so thought of her as I decorated the cover.  These two new sets were the perfect combination to completing this notebook!  Now my daughter can record her daily activities in her own "life" journal!

LOVE the new bike die!!  Isn't it adorable!!
I embossed the sentiment stamp to really highlight and be seen on the black background.

Try Me Tuesday ~ Ghost Stamping

Happy Tuesday!  It's Try Me Tuesday over at My Creative Time.
Today we are doing "Ghost Stamping" technique.  I've never done this before and researching all about it, I found a couple of different ways you can do it.  One way is to stamp your image with white ink and once dry, stamp same image over top with a color and offset just a tad so you have a white "ghost" of a shadow behind color.  Another way to do this technique is to stamp your image with white ink on white paper and once dry, rub a color over the stamped image.  This is the technique I tried as I just couldn't get a stamped image right doing the other technique.  The technique I did actually makes a dry embossed look to me but love how it gives a whole new way to use your stamps!!

Here is a close up showing how you can see the stamped images once colored with ink.  I just rubbed across the white stamped images with a sponge dauber to bring out the design.
Products Used:
Paper:  My Mind's Eye
My Creative Time:  Vintage Sentiments
Jellies:  Queen & Co.
Sewing Machine

Hope this inspired you to try this technique!!

Anniversary

It's my Anniversary this weekend and was totally inspired by a card on Pinterest here to create.  The stamping technique with a die cut was right up my ally to try!! I cut half a heart from the pattern paper, lined it up on my card base and then stamped with the large polka dot heart from Puffy Hearts Stamp Set.  Love how it turned out and know Hubby will like it too!!  Used 2 different stamp sets by My Creative Time to get the "happy anniversary" that I liked.
Products Used:
Paper: Canvas Corp.
My Creative Time: Chocolate Greetings  (for "anniversary")
Hello Chickie!  (for "happy")
Twine
