May Stamp Release: "What's Growing On?" & "Tag Dies"


Welcome to My Creative Time's May Release!  Today we are showing you projects using "What's Growing On?" & "Tag Dies"


For the Flowers I used the "Flower Petal" die and "Stitched Circle" die.  The leaves are actually the candle from the new "Celebrate Good Times" die.
Supplies:
Hello Summer paper pad  -  Echo Park
Yellow Hemp  -  Liz's Paper Boutique
Martha Stewart Multi-blade Scissors for grass
Fancy Label Punch  -  McGill
Tumbles Glass, Peeled Paint and Spun Sugar Distress Inks
Black Gel Pen


 The "whiskers" I put on this card are from some burlap from Liz's Paper Boutique.  I pulled out sections of the burlap so only loose pieces would show.  Then I used the extra pieces to tie on the buttons.
Supplies:
"What's Growing On" stamp set  -  My Creative Time
Lost and Found Two, Breeze  -  My Minds Eye
Dark Chocolate Card Stock and New Leaf Buttons  -  Papertrey Ink
Rich Cocoa Ink  -  Memento
Walnut Stain and Peeled Paint distress Inks
