My Creative Time 77th Edition Sneak Peek Day One!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the first day of Sneak Peeks for My Creative Time!!


This release is super pretty and perfect for your spring cards! Today we're taking a look at the new Tulip Frame Die and Springtime Smiles Stamp Set. These two beauties were made for each other!

I started by die cutting the Tulip Frame Die out of the centre of an A2 sized white card panel. I used the negative portion of the die as a mask and inked 3 different Distress Inks through it onto another white card panel.


I ended up cutting the ink blended panel down with the largest die in the More Stitched Rectangular Dies.  As for the die cut itself, I left it white.

I added some strips of foam adhesive to the back of the die cut and adhered it directly over the ink blended section.


This turned into a very clean, simple and elegant card that I think could be used for a sympathy card.  However, I choose the "Miss You" sentiment.


I decided it needed a bit more contrast so I trimmed down some black cardstock to create a mat. I added a few black enamel dots and although it's hard to see in the photos, some clear sparkle pen to the tulips.


This is just the most beautiful die and I can see many, many uses for it! Think shaker card or using the frame or flowers by itself!!  

Now onto the giveaway details!!
