It's Release Week at My Creative Time and today we're showcasing two new sets: Main Street + Way To Go.
These sets are great for many occasions and work well for more masculine cards as well. I've used them to create a birthday card for my oldest brother, Donal.
Have you ever had an idea in your head that seems like it will be AMAZING. For this card, I had planned on using the bicycle die from Way To Go (I'm sure you've seen it in other sneak peeks today) in front of the buildings so that they looked farther away. But instead, it just blocked the buildings from view. So I had resigned to leaving the road empty.
That was until...
I showed The Hubs. Knowing who the card was for, he said, "It would be really cool if you had a little runner there!"
I love that man.
The little runner is from You Are Here, while the rest of the stamps are from the new sets. Of course, I also thought it would be a fabulous idea to cut out all the little windows in the buildings. I wasn't too fond of the idea when I was halfway through and sick of cutting them out, but I had already committed.
Donal is a new runner and is one of the many family members who will be joining The Hubs and I in running for Hope Water Project. He's running the Detroit Half Marathon in October.
Thanks for dropping by today! Head over to Emma's blog to see what the other designers have created.
I hope you were inspired!
