My Creative Time Sneak Peek Day 1

Good Morning 
and 
Welcome to Day 1 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 31st Release!
MCT April New Release

Today we are sharing projects using 
 Spring Wreaths and Build a Pretty Flower

I have 2 cards to share with you today....one using each of the new sets.

My first card is one I made to give my mother-in-law for her birthday. She loves the color purple and I wanted to keep the flower from the new Build a Pretty Flower set the focal point. 
Using 3 stamps from the set, I stamped the petals using Dusty Concord Distress Ink and layering the the second petal stamp on top using versamark onyx black ink. I just love how these stamps layer! So pretty! Then for the stem, I used the Peeled Paint Distress ink. I did add a rhinestone to the center of the flower for a little extra sparkle and layered the sentiment using one of the new ones from the Pretty Spring Wreaths set. I added some machine stitching for the border and my card was complete. 

For my next card I made a sweet Mother's Day card using the Pretty Spring Wreaths stamp set.
I used scrap papers from my every growing pile and cut a fancy border using the Fun Stitched Border Dies and attaching it to my card using a zig zag stitch. That beautiful wreath was stamped using Peeled Paint Distress ink and a few random flowers were stamped on top using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. To finish my card off, I added some Posy Trendy Twine

So what do you think? I know you will all LOVE these new stamps! They are so much fun!!
