My Creative Time 48 Hour Flash Sale & Blog Hop!!

Good afternoon & welcome to another "48 Hour Flash Sale!" This sale is for 48 hours ONLY that is going on right NOW & will end on Sunday,  February 4, 2018 @ 7am PST.

I'm so sorry that I'm late to this party!  I picked up my goodies from the post office this morning and got to work!  Better late than never, right??!  You should have arrived from the lovely KENDRA!!

We have an AMAZING new kit we are showcasing!  This kit will consist of a stamp set with coordinating dies along with a coordinating STENCIL!  I am SUPER EXCITED to share this new "EXCLUSIVE" kit with all of you!  Now, since this is an "EXCLUSIVE" kit, basically once these kits are sold out, they are gone FOREVER!  

This is SUCH A FUN kit, I cannot wait for you to see all the projects the team has created using it! Don't forget to use the code FLASH at checkout to get 20% off of your entire "in-stock" only purchase! 

I introduce to you:




Isn't this just the most beautiful kit??!!  The dies make it super classy and the stencil brings out the fun of it too!!  Let's have a look at what I've created:)

This is card is super happy and I think would cheer up just about anyone!  I chose rainbow-esque Distress Oxides in the colours Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Wild Honey and Peacock Feathers. By moving the stencil around and only using the clouds, I was able to create this background.  I trimmed the panel down using the XOXO Border Dies which leave that beautiful embossed detail!!



I cut the girl with the umbrella out of white cardstock and white heat embossed the sentiment onto the umbrella itself then inked it up with the Twisted Citron ink.  I contemplated leaving it like this but then decided to add a bit more colour by cutting it a couple of times with some patterned paper.  I trimmed certain pieces to give her a dress and some boots!!


To make the die cut pop a bit more, I simply added a "shadow" by die cutting her out of some grey cardstock.  The heart embellishments also come from the dies in this set.

My next card is not quite so "in your face" bright:)!  I lightly inked the raindrop portion of the stencil with a combination of Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks onto some white cardstock and cut it down using the largest die from the More Stitched Rectangular Dies.  Again, I shifted the stencil slightly to achieve more of a layered look.


I cut the girl out of white cardstock again, and did two layers of gold heat embossing to give her a smooth, shiny look.  I also did the same with the three hearts.  I created the ground by using one of the dies from the More Stitched Edges Die Set and heat embossed the sentiment directly onto it.  I used foam tape to adhere the sentiment panel and also on the top portion of the girl to give some dimension.


This is such a beautiful kit, I absolutely LOVE it!!  You won't be disappointed when you receive it!!
