My Creative Time's August Stamp release BLOG HOP!

Today is the day, hurray!!!!!  My Creative Time's stamps are now available!!! Trust me ORDER EARLY!
You should have arrived here from Leanne's blog.
Today I am showcasing
"Gift Card Sentiments stamp" set and
the "Embossed Gift Card Holder"
For my first project I added the Gift Card Holder to a big tag.  A lot of times when I give a gift card I like to include a little something with it.  I made this tag to attach to a cute gift bag.  I made the flower with some burlap I picked up at a Scrapbook Expo and a Tim Holtz Bigz die.


My Supplies:

TPC Studio Girlfriends Collection
Hibiscus Burst Cardstock  -  PTI
Burlap from my stash
Sizzix Alterations Bigz Die - Tattered Florals
Crop-A-Dial and Eyelet
K&CO brad
Irock and Jolees gems
Worn Lipstick Distress Ink

For my second project I did a back to school theme.  I used the stitching stamps from the set to make a tic-tac-toe board.
For this I used:
Me and My Big Ideas School Days Pad
Pure Poppy Cardstock and Ribbon, Blueberry Sky Cardstock  -  PTI
Brads from Michaels
Aged Brick Distress Ink
Tonic Distress Tool
