MCT April Release Blog Hop

Hello there My Creative Time friends and welcome to the April stamp and die release. If you came here from Cindy's blog you are in the right place, if not make sure that you start back at Emma's blog so you can get the whole blog hop in.

For my project today I made gift wrap for a present. I used 3 items from Emma's newest release. The background flowers that I stamped my wrapping paper with is from the Bloom Where You are Planted stamp set. The beautiful 'Happy Birthday' sentiment comes for the Floral Sentiments stamp set (I just stamped Happy and Birthday separately so they would fit on my tag). I also used both of the Rolled Flower Dies to make my flower. 


I have picked up a lot of fun new tips and ideas for these flowers this week from Emma and the rest of the team. For this flower I used 2 of each die cut to make my flower. I did a very loose flower (almost flat), one slightly tighter (but still fairly flat), one almost normal and one super tight and layered them all inside each other. It turns out to be a pretty good sized flower (about 2 1/2" instead of the 1 1/4" ones that I made yesterday). I think it makes the perfect little accent for a present.

Here you can see the dimension just a little bit better.


Here is what I used from the new release:
