Sneak Peek #3 - My Creative Time September Stamp Release

Wow, this week is flying by. Welcome to day 3 of sneak peeks over at My Creative Time. Today we are showing a die and a stamp set. The Die is called the XL Label Die and the stamp set is called Whimsical Calendar Days. This set is another one that could be used for all sorts of projects.

First I made a really simple birthday card (the beautiful shape around the calendar is the die). I also used Wow! So Many Candles stamp set for the birthday sentiment:


How fun would these be for all sorts of birthday and anniversary cards, not to mention holidays and special events?! Oh yes and scrapbook pages and more! So many possibilities.

Another thought that I had for this stamp and die set was to make a small shape card. Something you could just stick on a gift or hang off the edge of a gift bag.

If you don't know how to make a shape card out of a die and would like to see a short video tutorial click HERE.

This is what the inside looks like:


I made the shaped card out of white cardstock and then I cut an extra die cut in patterned paper to layer on top of the front. I used a heart punch and some glossy accents to highlight the special day.

  41. Aha, I made it 2 days in a row. The wedding stuff is done as far as what can be done in advance so I had to stop by today to see what all you're up to. This has been a really busy week for you too it looks like. I don't know how but I missed that unbelievably adorable Mickey Jack-O-Lantern you did last year. That is one of the cutest things I've seen. In case I don't make it back before your "guest star" week is over best wishes & I'll be back next week to see what I missed.
