Guest Designers: Jeanne & Kim S.!

Good morning, My Creative Time fans! Jeanne here, from Jeanne's Paper Crafts, as a guest designer while Emma is away taking care of her family. Take care Emma...we got this! :)

On my card today, I am using one of My Creative Time's earlier stamp sets, 100% Sweetness. It is actually one of My Creative Time's Valentine sets, but can use these sentiments at any time!

The hexagon card base is a shape in the Silhouette Library. I duplicated the shape, flipped it and then welded the two of them together to create the base. It measures just under 5 1/2 inches in width, and a little less in height, but I don't recall the actual measurement. I cut it out in PaperTrey Ink Kraft cardstock. To create the top layer, I used the internal offset feature and cut it out in My Mind's Eye Rosy 6x6 paper stack.

I found this adorable Frog Prince SVG file designed by Lisa Norris over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. Isn't he just the cutest?! He was cut out in Core'dinations cardstock. The pattern paper is also from the My Mind's Eye Rosy stack. It has some of the cutest papers in it! I really love all of the new papers from My Mind's Eye, it's quickly becoming one of my favorite paper companies. :)

Well, that's it from me today! Don't forget to stop back by tomorrow for another super cute My Creative Time project!  

And now, a project from Kim:

Hello, this is Kim Score from Paper Punch Addiction and I'm excited to be sharing this new technique with you while Emma takes some time off to care for her son.  Today I'm going to show you how to create what I call a "Showcase" card.  This is a modified easel card which has a popped out frame in front of it and another popped out element in front of the frame.  This technique can be modified in so many ways to showcase different kinds of elements.  For my card, I used the Fly Away With Me stamp set paired with the Fly Away With Me die and Fly Away With Me Sentiments.  The stamps and dies all coordinate beautifully!

Please visit my blog to download the step by step tutorial.  Thanks!
