MCT March Release Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ happy birthday!


Good morning,,,
today is  My Creative Time March Release!  Can you believe it's that time again?
Boy, this year is flying by...

Welcome to Day 1 of Sneak Peeks!  We have a great week planned with new stamps and dies that you're gonna fall in love with!  There are brand new themed sets and some to coordinate with your favorites you already have in your arsenal. :)


Today we are featuring the Circle Stitch Pattern Die!  Let the creative come out and play with this new die!


The first thing I did was to use the die on watercolor paper.  Then I had some fun with distress inks, shine spray, and white chalk ink.  For the vellum "celebrate" I cut two and layered them.  It still has the softness of vellum, yet it can be read over the colorful background.


My Creative Time
Oh Deer ~ happy birthday
Whimsical Trees ~ large circle stamp
Soccer ~ small circle stamp ~ I cut the ball off, yep I did :)


Extras
Papertrey Ink Cardstock and Vellum
Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Memento Ink
Studio Calico shine
White Chalk Ink
scrap paper
Baker's Twine
