Welcome to the My Creative Time 48th Edition Release Blog Hop! Today is a happy day, because finally it’s release day for all of the wonderful products you’ve been seeing in the sneak peeks throughout this past week. I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest designer project. You should have arrived from Veronica’s blog, but if you’ve gotten lost anywhere along the way, you can always pop back to the start at My Creative Time.
For my hop project today, I have made a friendship card using two of the fabulous new sets from this month’s release, the Best Friends Background stamp and the Friendships are Forever stamp and die set. This fun watercolor card is a petite 3.5″ x 5″. But what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for with plenty of color and a bold graphic design.
I really love working with watercolors because you get the most beautiful blend of colors, and no two pieces ever turn out exactly the same. For my card, I began by stamping the adorable Best Friends Background stamp in Versamark ink onto a panel of watercolor paper, and then heat embossing with black embossing powder. I let the edges of the embossing fade off for a shabby distressed finish. Then shades of blue and green Distress ink were added with a very wet paintbrush.
The sentiment was made from the Friendships are Forever stamp and die set. I did some partial stamping for the “forever”, and completed the greeting with the complementing die cut. Layered both onto a strip die cut from last month’s versatile Stitched Belly Band set. Then topped all with a bit of trim and sequins.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I am the last stop along the hop. But before we go, here’s a bit of information for you about today’s release.
For our “Freebie” stamp for this release, we are giving away this ADORABLE “Bestie” die to the FIRST 150 shoppers! If you are one of the first 150 shoppers, you do not have to add this set to your cart, as it will be entered automatically. After that, this set will be available for purchase in the shop, along with the rest of today’s release.
