My Creative Time Blog Hop

Today is the My Creative Time New Release Blog Hop! 

If you would like to start at the beginning, click here. If you have arrived from Lucia's blog then you are on the right track.

Lovin' the new stamp set ~ Build a Pretty Flower!  It's so universal to use and with watercoloring being a big thing with stamping these days, this set is awesome as it gives that watercolor look with straight stamping!!  You can stamp on any paper to "build your flower" or even cut out the flower to create a die cut look.  Also did you see the cutest little ladybug to build in this set??  I haven't stamped him yet but soon he will be added to my projects!!


Here I made this card with "building flowers" on the tag die.  

Here is a close up of the "build a flower" ~ love the watercolor look and how you don't have to be perfect with your stamping!!!
Products Used:
Paper: Simple Stories 
My Creative Time:
Build a Pretty Flower (new release)
Sprinkles and Twine

Was so excited to create a layout with some of the sets from this new release!  Found some pictures of my daughter on her bike and got busy!!  The bike die is absolutely adorable and I could design it to look just like my daughters bike!  Love that!!  The ampersand is huge right now and what better way to showcase than on a layout!  


Here is the layout I created using these two new sets.

Close up of the bike and ampersand dies ~ LOVE them!!

That flower stamp set is so awesome the way it has a dimensional look by stamping the layers. Your layout is fabulous. Love how you made the bike look like your daughters and the way you used the big ampersand for the title.
