These new sets are AWESOME!!

So to make my card, I started with a kraft cardstock base, added a layer of white cardstock and then a Stitched Rectangular Frame Die layer using designer paper from Lawn Fawn~Perfectly Plaid Fall set.Next I die cut all the pieces for the turkey and pocket. I used the matching designer paper from the same paper pad and paper pieced the cutie turkey! He was then popped up onto the front of my card inside my pocket. Lots of layers on this guy!!
The sentiment was stamped under where the pocket would be and for some extra detail I added a nest of brown thread behind the image.

Happy Pumpkin Day...{MCT Whatever Wednesday}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to
Whatever Wednesday
with

Today I have a Halloween Treat project to share that is perfect for class parties, friends or just to put in your little ones lunch.
Everything I used for my sucker holder is made using MCT stamps and dies!
Take a look and let me know what you think....

Didn't this turn out adorable?
To make my project, I started out with The Perfect Match die and folded and scored additional lines to fit around my sucker. Next using the Stitched Fun Ticket Dies I stamped my sentiment which is from the new Spooky & Creepy Night
That cute pumpkin is also from the new Spooky & Creepy Night set but I added the small leaf to the top of the pumpkin using the die from the Love to Learn set.
Finished off with a matching orange bow from my stash and my project is all complete.

So what do you think???
I hope you like my project!

Total cuteness when it comes to making your own pumpkin treat box! This easy to do project can be made with any color/design of cardstock.
For my project I found some scrap striped paper and used the Stitched Favor Box Die.
Next I stamped the sentiment using the new kit ~Frightful Greetings
For the stem of my pumpkin, I just die cut the top of the Stitched Favor Box in brown cardstock and layered it over the designer paper.
Finishing touches to my project~ I added a green leaf using the die from A Thankful Heart

I had so much fun with this new kit that I made not 1 project but 3 cards to share! Take a look at my inspiration using this new kit!

3 different cards using the same kit~ the possibilities are ENDLESS 

First up is my treat card.....
All of my cards use the same basic design. In this case a purple cardstock base layered with white cardstock and a top cardstock panel die cut using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die. Please note that the Stitched Rectangular Frame die is NOT included in this kit but can be picked up in the MCT store HERE.
Using some Wilted Violet Distress Ink and the new Stencil, I made the pattern in both corners of my cardstock. I also stenciled a scrap piece of cardstock that was used to wrap my candy.
The sentiment, from the new kit was stamped onto the front of the card, just under where I was going to place the candy. I did use a circle die to frame my candy piece, adhered the candy to my card front. 
To finish my card, I added a shear white ribbon bow and some purple enamel dots.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Up next is a spooky fun card using the new skeleton stamp/die.
To make this card, I started again with a black cardstock base, a layer of white cardstock and a die cut piece of designer cardstock from my stash.
Next I used the stencil on some white cardstock with Black Soot Distress Ink. Lightly adding a pattern to the piece that I then stamped the sentiment onto. 
Finally I stamped and die cut the new skeleton image on some white cardstock which was then popped up onto the front of the card along with the sentiment. Some added enamel dots finished my card.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My final card is a simple design using the stencil as a focal point.
I stenciled the design onto a piece of white cardstock using Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink.
The sentiment was stamped onto the panel in the center of the card.
Finishing my card up with some black and orange enamel dots and a simple Totally Black Trendy Twine bow.

Batty for You.... {MCT Manly Monday}

Good Morning everyone!

It is time for another 
Manly Monday!

Today I am sharing a card that I made with the newest set~ Stitched Bat Die and the matching Bat Sentiments set
Take a look and let me know what you think....
To make my card was actually pretty simple. I started with a kraft cardstock base, added a layer of white cardstock and a piece of designer cardstock from my stash that I die cut using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die
Next I die cut the adorable bat and added his cute face using some white embossing powder.
He was then popped up onto the front of my card with some foam squares.
The sentiment, also from the new Bat Sentiments set was stamped onto the Ribbon End Banner Die and also popped up with some foam squares.
Some Nuvo Enamel Dots completed my card.
Super cute card....maybe I will give it to my husband :)

31 October....{MCT Inspire Me Wednesday}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another
Inspire Me Wednesday with My Creative Time!

Today's project was inspired by a few things...
~the newest release
~Halloween coming up (I know still in a few months)
and
~this adorable card I found on Pinterest HERE

Take a look at my Halloween invite and let me know what you think....
To make my invite, I used the coffin dies from the set~ Spooky Time and die cut the base to make a mini top folding card. I then layered the coffin card base with a piece of designer paper from my stash using the top stitched layer of the coffin die.
Next I stamped my sentiment into the center of the coffin using the newly released set~ Spooky & Creepy Night
To embellish my Halloween party invite, I added a simple orange bow to the top and a few die cut bats, also from the Spooky Time stamp/die set.
Finally to finish off my card, I die cut another top layer coffin piece in white to add to the inside of the card. That way all the party details can be added for the guests!
A super quick and easy project, one that can easily be mass produced and looks adorable if I say so myself :)

I hope you like my project!!!
Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the DT made!

MCT 70th New Release BIG Reveal & Blog Hop

Welcome to the70th New Release from 
 This has been such an AWESOME week of  amazing inspiration from the DT~ don't you think???
But there is one more day of projects with so lets get started....

You should be coming from the VERY talented
but if you are just stopping in, make sure to head back to the start~ the AMAZING 
You are not going to want to miss a thing!

For my project, I get to showcase the new
Build A Fall Wreath
take a look at the card I made using this set.....
I went alittle rustic with my card for today adding lots of texture by using my stamps.
To make my card I started with a kraft cardstock base and then moved along to work on my card mat.
I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die
and another piece in the kraft cardstock also.
On the kraft cardstock, I used the Grainy Wood Background stamp and some veramark ink for the cool texture of the tree.
I grabbed my More Stitched Edges Die for the torn paper look, cut the cardstock and placed the 2 pieces aside for later.
Moving onto the white cardstock....I pulled out a few of the different leaf stamps from the new Build a Fall Wreath set and randomly stamped them onto the cardstock using Distress Ink.
Once I had the stamping the way I liked, I layered the kraft pieces onto the white cardstock making just part of the stamping show.
To then complete my card, I stamped the sentiment, again from the new Build a Fall Wreath set, added the tree die cut from the Seasonal Greetings set and die cut some of the smallest stamped leaves to pop up onto the tree.
Some light inking around the edges, foam on the back of the card mat for some extra height and mounted onto my card base completed my project.

Now for the entire release.....
