MCT 29th Edition Sneak Peeks: Lovey Dovey Cards

by Veronica

Hey there! Welcome to Day 2 of Sneaks for My Creative Time's newest release (available this Friday). This has got to be one of my FAVORITE releases so far - there are so many different ways to use these stamps and dies!

If you've read my blog for awhile, you know that I like to celebrate Valentine's Week with The Hubs. We don't exchange gifts for Vday or make a big fuss out of it, but I like to give him little cards and notes for the seven days leading up to Vday to remind him that I'm thinking about him (and that he owes me a dinner out soon *giggle*).

This release is perfect for little love notes! Check out what I did with Puffy Hearts Just For You:


The sentiment and polka dot heart background are from the new set. I stamped one of the classy girls in Keepin' It Classy from the skirt down and Stickled her dress and heels. I also used Fun Stitched Edges for the scallop border.

I also used a couple of sentiments from Puffy Hearts Just For You on this next card:



This Love Mail card features the brand new Mini Stitched Envelope Die. I stamped the mailbox image from All Around Everything Accessories, drew the base and colored it all in (tip: I used a white gel pen to color in the letters inside the mailbox).

The little stitched heart line is from the new FREEBIE for this release: Fun Stitched Paper Airplane (see the "Exciting News" below). I added a few clouds (Fly Away With Me Dies) and some liquid applique snow to finish setting the scene. The tiny heart next to "Be Mine" is from You're Too Cool which some of my fellow DT members 'sneaked' yesterday.

My last card for today is a very simple design with a lot of PUNCH:

This card showcases the large heart die from Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO. I simple cut out a bunch of hearts in a neat color combo, folded them in half, glued them together and pop-dotted them onto my card. I stamped the script background from Script Type Background onto the vanilla heart for some elegance.

The chevron at the bottom (Build a Chevy Background) adds a touch of masculinity to this card, too.

  48. The Hubs is lucky to be on the receiving end of all of these love notes. The 3D idea is clever and manly. I like the script stamping too. On card 1 I like the background stamping and the Stitched Edge die cut. The Stickles show up great in your picture. Clever to use part of a classy girl for this one. Card 2 is so cute with the snowy scene and the envelope flying away. Fabulous job on all of your projects.
