MCT June Release Sneak Peek: Fly Me to the Moon

by Veronica

Hey there! Today I'm "sneak peeking" the newest release from My Creative Time. The stamps and dies used in today's project with be available for purchase TOMORROW!

Click image for larger view.
This card is 4" x 4". The sky layer was originally a white piece of glossy card stock. To create the moon, I punched a 1-3/4" circle out of a scrap piece of card stock. I used that punch-out as a template, laid it down onto my white glossy piece and pressed my Versamark stamp pad right down on it. I then embossed the Versamark circle with clear embossing powder. Using Stampin' Up!'s Night of Navy ink pad, I brayered the ink onto my glossy card stock. Once it was dry, I used a baby wipe to remove the ink from the embossed moon.

The corners were punched with Stampin' Up!'s Ticket Corner Punch and the scallop is also from SU! After layering my cardstock, I wrapped some SU! Pool Baker's Twine and tied it into a bow.

After die cutting the hot air balloon (MCT's Fly Away With Me Dies) in my two patterned papers (orange and pink), I stamped the coordinating image (Fly Away With Me Stamps) directly onto my cut-outs. The sentiment (Fly Away With Me Sentiments) was stamped onto the first banner die (included in the sentiments set) and layered onto the second. The sentiments in this set are not wavy, but are very pliable so that you can 'wave' them onto your acrylic block to fit the banner perfectly.
