My Creatvie Time Sneak Peek Day # 2

Good morning! Today is day #2 of My Creative Time September Mini Release Sneak Peeks with Emma and the design team. Emma has a FABULOUS mini release that you don't want to miss! So head on over to Emma's blog to get all the details! Click here.

Today I will be the using the Present sentiment/ image from the stamp set "Just For You" along with the new "Just Tags" . Can I just say  ~ I LOVE this little stamp set and dies! I know I say this ALL the time but I really do! I decided to make two cards today! I wanted to show you that these dies can be used on cards as well. Plus I also wanted to show you the little present sentiment/image can be used for birthdays or a just because card! It doesn't just have to be for Christmas!

So for my first card I decided to step out of my comfort zone and use some soft and subtle papers and colors! I LOVE this paper ~ some sweet bloggy friend sent me this paper pack  and I just LOVE it! So I die cut the "Just Tags" in two different patterns.  I LOVE the fact that these layer  and the top die has Emma's signature stitching ~ Thank You Emma! I inked my stamp and added some crinkle ribbon to the tag. I decided to add some jute from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique ~ it went so perfectly with the pink paper! I have had these faux pearls made by Recollections forever ~ I just wanted to add a little bling. Inked up my edges with some Tim Holtz ink. I decided to not add any other sentiment on it! I just want the person receiving it to know their friendship is like a gift! I know corny right???

 
Onto my second card! I wanted to make a masculine birthday card! I never  have enough of them and again ~ not my comfort zone! But with this new release ~ it was actually rather simple to make and I am quite pleased with both my creations! I used the present sentiment/ image, from the new stamp set "Just For You" and the new dies "Just Tags" . This time I decided to use some embossing powder for my sentiment/ image. It embosses PERFECTLY!  My birthday sentiment is from "Wow! So Many Candles" and stamped on the tag from last months release " Just Simply Live" stamp set. My hemp and burlap is from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique. I couldn't help my self by adding that ~ nothing seems right with out a bow of some sorts! LOL!
 
 
 
Anyway that is it for my projects today! Make sure you head on over to Emma's blog and see all the AMAZING creations that Emma and the design team have created for you  ~ I know you WON'T be disappointed!!!

  16. As everyone has already said, "both tags" are awesome.. i can't decide which i like best.. would love to be the friend that received such a beautiful tag, and i love the idea of no sentiment so she will know her friendship is a gift, what a beautiful thing idea (she is lucky to have you as her friend, i am sure she will cherish it as she cherishes your friendship... the masculine one is great (when Alex was little if he wanted me to remember something he would say, "burn it into your memory"... i am going to burn this one into my memory for when i need a masculine tag. hugs
