You are not going to want to miss a thing! She really ROCKED this release (well she always does, doesn't she?? Of course!!)

Today I get to showcase this releases FREEBIE stamp set~ 
HELLO You.
All the details on how you can get this set for free is listed at the bottom of my post..but if you have been following all the sneaks this week I am sure you have purchased your new release already before even hopping along....RIGHT?!?! It is another must have for sure!!
Here is the card I made..... I just LOVE that vine and really wanted to highlight that as my focal point. To make my card, I started with a kraft cardstock base, added a layer of black cardstock and then using the largest of the Stitched Rectangular Dies, added a layer of designer paper from DCVW. Since I knew I was going to use the sentiment that is also included in this set, I die cut one of the Stitched Sweethearts and stamped the vine directly over the heart and spilled the remaining image onto the printed designer paper. For alittle more added detail, I pulled out my neglected sewing machine and ran a single line through the center of the heart.
Next I stamped my sentiment onto the bottom right hand corner..dont you just love that scripty font of the "LOVE"? I know I do!!!!
Then to finish my card off I added some enamel dots to the top corner of the heart and around the sentiment. I also added a few to the vine...so pretty!!

Peachy Keen Stamps November New Release.

What did you think of yesterday's projects?? Super CUTE right??
Well today we have more AWESOME new stamps to showcase and ADORABLE projects to share :)
I LOVE making holiday treats to hand out so for today's project I made some candy sticks using the sweet new Happy Snow Couple 1 1/8" faces.....
I just LOVE these happy faces!!! I stamped them onto one of the MCT stitched circle dies and then colored them in using my copics and my white gel pen.
Next for their hats, I used the MCT St. Patty's day hat which actually worked AWESOME for these guys! Since these are Christmas candy sticks, I used the holly leaves and a berry for their hats and then tied the tags onto the candy sticks using some Candy Cane Trendy Twine.
BTW~ I did fill them with the new Mint M & M's...YUMMY!!!!
These were so fun to make and I can not wait to hand some of these cuties out to my friend's little ones. They would make GREAT school party favors too!!!

My Creative Time 38th  Release!
Today is the final day of sneaks before the big reveal and blog hop!!! It has been such an awesome week of projects but we have one more set to showcase.......

Today the DT will be showcasing projects using the freebie set~
HELLO You

I used this stamp set and made a set of 4 cards (2 pictured) to give to my MIL. I went CAS to showcase the gorgeous new image!
Hope you like them!!!

Here is my card up close! Isn't that greenery so pretty! I just LOVE it!
To make my card I used the new stamp and some Peeled Paint Distress ink to stamp the image onto the bottom corner of my stitched frame die. Then using one of the sentiments also from this set, I stamped it right next to the image.
To add some dimension to my card, I die cut some of the tiny flowers from the Way To Go set using scraps of pattern paper from my stash. I then popped them up with some small foam squares and added some tiny pearls and enamel dots.
2 very CAS cards that I think are so pretty to give as a gift set! The best thing about these is you can change the sentiment to fit any occasion!

Another AWESOME day of projects yesterday right?? Well today is going be be just as FABULOUS!!!

Snow Buddies and Winter Snowman Dies
OMG wait until you see these sets!! Total CUTENESS!!

For my card today I used the new snowman dies along with the new oval dies to create this....
Don't you just LOVE that snowman?? He is super cool...LOL!!! To make my card, I started with a kraft cardstock base, added a layer of white cardstock and then a rectangular designer paper die cut. I knew where the snowman was going to be placed so I stamped my sentiment using the new Snow Buddies stamp set. Next I die cut the oval where my snowman was going to be placed and set that aside to cut the pieces for the snowman. With matching pattern paper, I cut those adorable mittens and the scarf, the snowman in white and the hat, buttons and glasses in black. You can even see his adorable stick arms which were die cut in brown and are all part of the new Winter Snowman Dies set. He was then assembled and placed onto the oval die cut.
Here is another angle of the card and you can see the dimension I added by popping up the mittens and scarf. Some enamel dots and my card was completed!

MCT 38th New Release Sneak Day 2

Good Morning and welcome to Day 2 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 38th  Release!

What did you think of yesterdays sneaks and projects?? Pretty AWESOME right?? Well wait until you see what Miss Emma came up with for today's sets!!! I know you guys are going to LOVE them!!!!

Today the DT will be showcasing projects using the new sets~
Stitched Window Dies & Accessories and  Window Sentiments & Flowers 

For my inspiration today, I have a CAS holiday card to share and after many attempts to make it just right (in my eyes of course) I think this card turned out beautiful.
Let me know what you think :)
For this card, I had pictured in my mind a city building all decorated for the holidays. Lights lite up on the sidewalk with wreaths and holly decorating the poles, frosty windows from the warmth inside the house and the cool air outside as well as the decorated windows.
So now that you know where the design came from for this card, I tried to recreate it in my card.
I started with a white card base and added a Stitched Rectangular frame using some red cardstock. Next I die cut the window and the window ledge and added some vellum to the back to give the frosty look. I popped that up onto the card from using some foam pop dots and added the sweet sentiment below.
Next I used the lamp pole from the Wishing You Were Here set, adding yellow lights for that soft glow :)
Finally I die cut some holly leaves from the Boughs of Holly set (a MUST have for the holiday season....LOL I have used them for the past 2 days) placed them on the pole and the top of my window and finished my card off by adding some glittery holly berries.

MCT 38th New Release Sneak Day 1

Good Morning and welcome to Day 1 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 38th  Release!

Miss Emma has another AMAZING new release and the DT can not wait to share all of our projects with you! We all know you are going to LOVE everything in this release.
So sit back and get ready for a GREAT week of inspiration followed by our blog hop on Friday when we will show you all the entire new release and it will be available for purchase!

Today the DT will be showcasing projects using the new set~
Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies

I know that everyone is going to flip for these!!!!! I know I did when I saw that Emma was releasing them :)

Anyways I have 2 cards to share today...both using these AWESOME new oval dies.
So for my first card I made a holiday shaker card.....
I used designer paper I picked up from Michaels for my card base and then using 2 different sizes of the Stitched Oval Dies, I made my embellishment piece.
I die cut the bottom layer in white cardstock and then die cut the same size for the top layer in the matching red cardstock (I know the picture doesn't really show it but the reds do indeed match!) Then using the smaller oval die, I cut a window out in the red oval.
I added some acetate to the window and stamped my sentiment on the white cardstock for the inside of my shaker. Then filling my shaker with some Christmas sequins from My Craft Spot, I attached the whole embellishment piece to the front of my card. Some added holly leaves and berries from the Boughs of Holly set and my card was complete.

From Our Family To Yours

For my next card, I made a birthday card using 2 different sizes of the new Oval Dies and several other MCT stamps and dies....
For this card I used designer paper from Echo Park~That's My Boy paper pack and did a random LO using one of the Stitched Oval Dies for the base of the design, layering two tag dies and 2 stitched stars onto the oval. I added some hemp twine to tie the two tags together and placed some enamel in a random pattern. For the sentiment, I used the smallest Oval Dies and stamped the "Birthday Wishes" from the Teeny Tag Greeting set.
A fun masculine birthday card this turned out to be.
