My Creative Time January Release Blog Hop

Good Morning!  Today is the day My Creative Time's January Release is revealed Yaaaaayyyyy!!!  You should have arrived here from Cassandra's Blog.  If not you can start at the beginning here.
This is a release full of beautiful stamps and dies!!!  I have enjoyed working with My Creative Time's new products this week and I'm sure you will too!!

Ok on to my project.  I am showcasing "More Gift Card Sentiments".  This stamp set coordinates with the Gift Card Holder die and the sentiments are perfect to use on any of your creations.
I used the same stamp for both the Wedding Card and Gift Card Holder.  I masked the word shower with tape for the sentiment I put on the Stitched oval die.
 I cut out the glasses once in patterned paper and layered another cut of clear plastic over them.



This is the More Gift Card Sentiments Stamp Set.  Please go here to see the FULL RELEASE!

Supplies I Used:
Cricut Cartridge Elegant Edges for base of card cut at 6"
Cricut Cartridge Sweethearts for glasses cut at 4.5"
Chateau Lavender Stack  -  DCWV
Grafix Craft Plastic
Plum Pudding Cardstock and Silk Ribbon  -  Papertrey Ink
Rose Ribbon  -  Tonic
Vintage Photo and Dusty Concord Distress Inks
Crochet Thread and Pearl
IRock and Gems
