MCT Stamp/Die of the Month....MAIN STREET

Good Morning Everyone!!!
Can you believe it is November already????
It's time for the new......
 My Favorite Stamp/die of the month! 
Today we are featuring the AWESOME "Main Street Stamp Set"  
 If you have been waiting to get this set, you can do so now HERE at a sale price! 
Yep, this set will be on sale for the entire month of November! The sale will end on Nov 30th @ 12:00am PST!  

 I have 2 cards to share today using the Main Street stamp set and TONS of other MCT goodies...so lets take a look!
For my first card I used the designer paper as my inspiration and worked the card around that. I used only the kraft, red and white color combo and really love the way this turned out. I started with a white card base and added a layer of kraft cardstock and designer paper from Echo Park that I die cut using the largest of the Stitched Rectangular dies. Next I die cut a kraft Stitched Doily, a small Circle from the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies and layered those onto the card mat. I stamped on of the building from the Main Street stamp set and fussy cut it out to pop it onto the circle die. I did add some Wink of Stella glitter to the windows but you really can not see it in the picture :(. Using some matching red designer paper I cut the smallest of the Stitched Hearts Layering Dies popped that up onto the building and again added some Wink of Stella glitter. To finish my card up, I stamped the sentiment from the A Day in December stamp set, fussy cut that banner pieces out and using a small stapler, attached it to the top corner of my card.

For my next card, I tried something different, a single layer stamped card (not sure what the official name is..LOL!). I love the concept of this but I am not sure I like how this turned out. Maybe if my black ink pad was a bit juicier the street stamp would look better? Guess it is time to replace that...anyways here is the card.....
For this card, I started with a kraft cardstock base and stamped the scripty background using brown  into the center of the card. I did make a stencil using the Stitched Rectangle die and some acetate so everything lined up and was centered on the card. I then stamped everything inside of the stencil in layers, the Scripty Background first, the road from the Main Street stamp set next. Then the Whimsical tree over the top. I did add some Wink of Stella to the tree as well as some red stickles. To finish off my card, I stamped my sentiment using the Fun Variety on the Inside & Out set and added 2 more small dots of stickles to either side.
