MCT April Release Sneak Peek #1

Hello and welcome to My Creative Time April Release Sneak Peeks Day #1! Well when you think Emma over at My Creative Time can't top last months release ~ she does it again!!!! This release is by far the best yet! So many beautiful and fun things. This release is so versatile  ~ just you wait and see!

For my cards today I used the umbrella image from this release, "All Around Everything Accessories". This stamp set has so many ADORABLE little images that fit PERFECTLY with Emma's Scallop and Stitched Circle Die. I LOVE her signature stitching around the circle ~ because you don't have to add it yourself.
So for my first card I colored the umbrellas, used a circle punch and pop dotted them on a strip of black paper. To give them a little color I decided to use my MCT scallop die and adhere them to the back of the black strip of paper. Adds just that little touch of color. Then I used MCT Fancy Frame die to stamp my sentiment from " Happy Hunting" stamp set. I LOVE that sentiment ~ so cheery! I decided to use the stitching from the stamp set "Gift Card Sentiment" to add that little detail!


For my second card I decided to paper piece the umbrella. I have a wedding shower coming up and thought this would be perfect image and sentiment for it! I used MCT Scallop & Stitched Circle die. I stamped the round sentiment from new "All Around Everything"stamp set. I used some nesties for all the layers and added a big bow! Simple and easy.

  31. I love how your umbrellas stand out on the black and clever to put the scallops behind...very attractive. I like the stitching added to the label background...great idea for a great card. The shower circle sentiment is great on your pretty card also. You are right I did think she could not top the last release.
