My Creative Time 48 Hour Flash Sale!!

Hello everyone!! Hope you are having a fantastic day!! I am supposed to be participating in the 48 Hour Flash Sale and Blog Hop for My Creative Time which was also supposed to be my first official post as a new DT member.  But you can't control the postal service, can you?  My super, duper happy mail showed up this morning (a day late and a dollar short, so they say) so I got right down to business and created a couple of projects using the amazing new kit being featured today!!

ThIs is an EXCLUSIVE kit!!! Once they are gone, they are gone FOREVER!!!  This is an amazing and super fun kit, so PLEASE hop along with the incredibly talented Design Team!

And of course, as the title states, there is A SALE going on right now!  Don't forget to use the code FLASH at checkout to get 20% off of your "in-stock" only purchase.  

I introduce to you:

Isn't this amazing??  This kit is perfect for ALL your Valentines cards or even a "just because I love you" card.  The sentiments are just beautiful with one of my favourite MCT fonts.  The dies are incredible, and LARGE! And yes, that gorgeous stencil is also included!!

Let's take look at my projects, shall we?

Of course, I just had to use that stencil.  I traced the hearts using some water-soluble markers onto a piece of watercolour paper.  Then smoothed out the colour with water.

See that sparkle?  This was an experiment that luckily worked out.  I lined up the stencil, squished some Versamark Ink over top and used a Clear Sparkle Embossing Powder over top.  It's super pretty in real life!!  I then cut the large double heart die from the kit out of the same watercolour paper and used 2 of the same colours to create a soft look.

Before putting this card together, I cut down the heart panel using the largest die from the More Stitched Rectangular Dies Set. I stamped one of the sentiments from the kit so it would peek out from the pink heart.

I adhered the panel to a grey card base and placed a few sequins inside the dies to give it a faux shaker look!

My next card was a bit quicker to make.  I started by stamping the "love" from the stamp set and used the co-ordinating die to cut it out. This die can be used on its own as well!

I cut down a piece of white cardstock with the same rectangle die and this time used the stencil to dry emboss.  I've never done this before and had to watch a YouTube video to see how it was done :)

I did an inlaid die cutting technique by first cutting the large single heart (and inking it up), then taking the "love" die and cutting through the middle of it.  Make sense?  Here's a pic :)..

I made sure to leave all the pieces together on my cutting plate.  I popped up the die cut sentiment by cutting it multiple times, then simply placed the heart pieces around it.

To complete this card, I stamped a cute little sentiment and foam mounted the panel onto a kraft card base, and of course, added a few clear sequins.

So there you have it, kind of long post but I really wanted to showcase the versatility of this kit!  I hope you enjoyed!
