Day 4 of the MCT April Sneak Peeks

Hi there and happy Thursday!!
Welcome to Day 4 of the Sneak Peeks for My Creative Time's April Release!!

Today we are giving you a sneaky peek of 2 sets called:

For my first project, I used the Springtime In Paris set:

I created a little border to separate the patterned papers by stamping one of the stamps from the set in a straight line and then just fussy cutting it out. I then used another stamp from the Springtime In Paris set to decorate my patterned paper by adding some pretty flourishes onto my striped paper. Isn't that Eiffel Tower awesome??? Yup! It's in the set also!! After I had that stamped and cut out, I popped it up with some foam adhesive onto a pink layer that I created using the Vintage Stitched Label Die. The Bonjour is also in the Springtime In Paris set. I stamped it onto the little banner from the Vintage Stitched Label Dies.

My Creative Time Products:

Other Products:
Cardstock: Recollections. Patterned Paper: Market (MME). Inks: Basic Gray (SU!), Jet Black Archival Ink (Ranger). Misc.: Ribbon, Foam Adhesive. Bling (Offray)

For my second project, I used the And Then Some set:

First off, how cool is that ampersand from the And Then Some set?? I absolutely LOVE it!!! So cool and I have a feeling I will be using it alot! I used the negative for my card front and popped it up with some foam adhesive to give my card a little more depth. To hold the easel card upright, I stamped a sentiment from the More of My Favorite Sayings stamp set onto the Stitched Curly Label Die & layered that onto the Curly Label Die and popped it up with some more foam adhesive. 
To create my little easel card box, I used a tutorial that I found HERE.

Here is a picture with the drawer open to see the hugs and kisses candies inside:
