Guest Designer for My Creative Time

I can not even begin to express how honored I am to be a Guest Designer today on My Creative Time's blog. Emma is so talented and her stamp sets are amazing! Thank you so much Emma for this opportunity!

Now on to the card! The card size is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2. I am starting to really like using that size because it gives me more room to be creative. The card base is cardstock from PaperTrey Ink in white. The "sky" layer is some random pattern paper from my stash it is cut a 5 1/4 by 5 1/4. The "land" I free handed using Bo Bunny dots paper. I also used the Bo Bunny dots paper for the girls dress and stroller. I love using that paper because not only does it cut beautifully with the Cricut, but give plain card stock a little interest. The house and the little girl were cut at 2 1/2 using the Kate's ABC's from Cricut. I LOVE this cart! The cuts are cute, but not too cute like some of the other Cricut cartridges. The flower stem is some ribbon I found on Etsy. I really like how it works perfectly with flower you make or purchase like the one I used here from Basic Grey. The sun up in the corner I free handed also and gave it a little face from Peachy Keen Stamps Click Here to purchase.

Now, to the most important part! The products I used from Emma. The die I used can be found Here . I used the Fancy Frame Die & Stamp Set. I really like this die! I used the stamp that comes with the die, but I removed the dotted line in the center so it wouldn't cover my sentiment before stamping. The sentiment I used is from my favorite set "So Grateful for You". I have to say I use this set a lot! It is my go to set for a thank you cards! I know if you visit her site not only will you see how talented she is, but I'm sure you will find something you will love from her store just like I have (many times, maybe too many). Well, I think that about covers it!
