MCT October Release Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ good friends!

Whoop Whoop today is My Creative Time's October Sneak Peek Day 1!  Today's sneak peek  is packed full of friendship sentiments you're going to be crazy for!

 For my cards I'm sharing with you, I used stamps from the new Friendships are Forever stamp set.

I had been wanting to try this "batik" style stamping for a while and thought this would be the
 perfect stamp set to accent it.  

To create the background, I stamped the solid flower stamp with versamark and heat embossed clear embossing powder.  Once it was cooled I folded the paper to give it the creases.  Next I carefully blended the inks as to not rip the paper.  I added some glossy accent dots then sprinkled fine glitter for a bit of sparkle.  I really love this look!

For the blue/green card, after creating the batik background, I used one of the oval dies.  I slipped the paper through the center of the die so it would only cut one side.  Then I did the same thing for the lower half.  When I attached the inked background pieces to my card base, I did it so they were touching on each side.  If you look closely you can see that it's actually two pieces.
