My Creative Time November Release Sneak Peek #2

Good Morning my friends!  Today is Sneak Peek #2 for My Creative Time's November Release!  This is a BIG ONE so get ready!!  Today I am showing you some of the new set Slam Dunk.  I don't usually do sports cards but I enjoyed doing these!  My twins play soccer and baseball so I really should be doing more sports projects.  Now I have some fabulous stamps to use!
For the net on the hoop I recycled some mesh from a bag of chocolate coins. (I have to admit I was quite proud of myself for that one!)
Even the sentiment on this set fits perfectly in Emma's Gift Card Holder die.  I used a 1" circle punch for the basketball stamp.
I used my Gypsy to flip and weld this basketball cut into a shaped card.  Emma's Scallop and Stitched Circle die set also coordinates with these stamps.
 Supplies I Used:
and Gift Card Holder die  -  My Creative Time
Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge
Patterned Paper from The Great Travel Stack  -  DCWV
Bazzil Basics embossed paper and Orange Glitter Cardstock  -  Michaels
Orange Zest and True Black Cardstock  -  Papertrey Ink
Black Diamond Stickles and Sparkly Black Brads
Black Soot and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks
1" Circle Punch  -  Marvy
Twine from the mailing supplies section of Michaels
Archival Ink Pad  -  Mr. Cricut Crazy
