My Creative Time's 8th Edition Release Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!! I hope that you have enjoyed this week of sneaky peeks! Today is finally here and you can officially see the brand new spankin 8th Edition stamp sets wooo hooo!! These are available for purchase @8 am pst!! Be sure to hurry and get your order placed I have a feeling these will sell out FAST!!!

For my project today here are the two stamp sets that I used.....




I decided to make a little home decor project using the cricut cartridges Jolly Holiday's, Winter Frolic and a 8 x 10 canvas (you can purchase these at HL or Joann's). I used my Gypsy to size and arrange everything the way I wanted and then cut it all out with my expression. To get started on my canvas, I first painted on a layer of Gesso. I then used some acyrlic paint (Americana) to "try" hee hee to make a snowy looking background! I then took a small brush and white paint to make little dots to represent snow. After that had dryed, I then glued down each piece using Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive. I then used Staz On to stamp the two sentiments from Happy Mail and All Around Christmas. Now the next few steps are kinda a blur, I think I added everything other than the kitchen sink to add some shine and sparkle bahahahaha!! Lets see I know I added some Mod Podge and while that was drying I misted it with some Tsukineko SIlVER shimmer spritz  and completely had a HEART ATTACK because I was wanting to use the FROST one lol!!! So here's where everything started to get fuzzy trying to get the silver to not be so powerful hee hee. I misted with the Frost (hoping and hoping that would help) which did help some. I then used stickles and started out by just doing a few spots, but then just thought oh what the heck, so I squirted a glob and smeared it all over with my finger!!! And do you believe with ALLLLL that glitter and shimmer it's STILL hard to get that to show up in a picture!!! But TRUST me it's VERY, VERY shiney :) I then finished it off by using my crocodile punch to make two holes and some ribbon to be able to hang it! Here are some closer shots of Emma's stamps...




I just love Emma's new stamps!! Aren't they awesome!!!!! She has also created a embossing die that coordinates with this set!!  Here's a picture of it!



And some more exciting news....
