My Creative Time July Release

Happy Friday!!!
Today is My Creative Time's release day. What a fun week it's been, full of new products and lots of fun inspiration! I know that I've had a lot of fun viewing the sneaks each day. If you've arrived from super fabulous Nikki's blog, then you are on the right track, if you would like to start at the beginning, click here.
This first card was made with the new My Thoughts are With You stamp and die set. I made a Christmas shaker card with the mason jar die, the Boughs of Holly Stamp Set and Winter Cheer Stamp Set. I filled it with some flake glitter and 4mm clear sequins. 
My second card was also made with the My Thoughts are With You stamp and die set, the  older Build A Pretty Flower Stamp Setand Surf's Up Stamp Set's. I used the "mirror stamping" technique for the seahorse on the right. You can see a video showing how it's done here. The video shows how to use your MISTI, but you don't have to have a MISTI to do the technique, in fact I didn't use my MISTI when I stamped him. Here's one showing how without the MISTI. My seahorse didn't come out as clear as the original, but it looks pretty good. I didn't have a pen that matched the color ink I used, or I would have colored him in a bit. Next time I use this technique,  I will use black or brown ink so that I can touch it up if I need to.
