MCT November Release Sneak #1

by Veronica

The November Release from My Creative Time is here! This month, Emma is releasing eight (count 'em, EIGHT) new stamps sets (one includes a coordinating die) and one awesome, versatile die. You will LOVE THESE!!

Today I'm showcasing one of the three 'mini' sets: Touchdown. This set has some great stamps in it! It would be perfect for a "Football Mom" or to use for birthday invitations - even a Superbowl Party invitation! I have to admit - I was a bit stumped at first with how this stamp set would work for me. I started to think outside of the box and knew just what to do with it!

Whenever my husband travels for work, I always stick a little card in his suitcase for him to find when he gets to his hotel. It's just a nice way to let him know that I'm thinking of him and can't wait for him to come home. Being a proud graduate of the University of Michigan, he is a die-hard Wolverine's fan (Go Blue!)! I made this card to make sure that he knows that even though Denard Robinson is a great quarterback, HE is my MVP!

I kept the foundation of this card pretty simple to make the white heart really POP. I stamped words from the new sets Touchdown ("Touchdown", "Offense", "Defense") and Sports Sentiments ("Football") in Versamark ink to make the watermarked background.

After stamping the words on the background, I cut the heart out of the center of the card stock using the new die included with another FABULOUS stamp set being released this week (100% Sweetness). I also cut out a white heart using the same die to layer behind the cutout.

The "MVP" sentiment is from MCT's new Sports Sentiments set and I used two separate stamps from You Had Me at Chocolate (just mask the words that you don't want to stamp with a post-it note or printer paper) for the "you are my".

I popped the background paper up from the card base (there's also another layer of blue card stock under the background paper that you can't see in the photos) and 'sunk' the white heart into the card to get the dimension.

  6. Veronica - I'm not a huge sports fan but I like how you used this to make a card that didn't look like a sports card. I love that this card could be used for an anniversary, sweetest day etc. What a great job. Thanks for sharing.

  24. Oh My Goodness Veronica... where to start with your card! I noticed you did a printed background with the same stamp sentiment and yet it totally transforms to something different with the diff color used. Perfect touch adding the heart in the middle. Fabulous Work Veronica!

    Many Sweet Creations...
