Good Morning and welcome to Day 4 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 36th  Release!
So what did you think of yesterday's projects and sneak??? Pretty AWESOME right???
Wait until you see this set of stamps and dies!!

Today the DT will be showcasing projects using the new set~
All You Need is Coffee

This is so how I start out my morning...a cup of steaming hot coffee while the house is still quiet :)
And here is my inspiration....
How super CUTE are those coffee mugs?? And did you see that fun stitched embossed "steam"?? Plus I am so LOVING the new word die!!
So here is how I made this CAS card. I again used my new favorite die~ the Stitched Rectangle Frame Die for my card mat and added 2 of the new die cut coffee mugs. After positioning them where I wanted them, I used the "steam heart" and embossed it above the cups. For some extra sparkle, I colored it in using my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.
Next using the sentiment from the new All You Need is Coffee set, I stamped it onto the banner die from the Just Simply Live set. I die cut the "coffee" word using the matching pattern paper and finished off my card with some random enamel dots.

MCT 36th New Release Sneak Peek Day 3

Good Morning and welcome to Day 3 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 36th  Release!
Again another AWESOME day yesterday of sneaks right??? We have much more to share!!!!!

Today the DT will be showcasing projects using the new set~
A Thankful Heart
This beautiful set will surely make sending Thanksgiving cards very easy! The perfect sentiments and matching leaf dies are such a great addition to the MCT family!
Here is my inspiration for today.......
Can you tell I just LOVE that Stitched Rectangle Frame die??? I used it again on my card mat, this time die cutting it out using Kraft cardstock and stamping the Grainy Wood Background onto it.
Then using another die from the Stitched Rectangle Die set, I die cut an opening in the center of my card and then cut a very thin frame to add to the outside. I added the die cut "grateful" to the center then stamped the sentiment underneath.
Using the new leaf dies from this set, I die cut 2 different ones (can you see the beautiful embossed design that these have??? They are so pretty). Next I added them to the card front, under some natural hemp twine and a brown button.
Finally I embellished with some random enamel dots and my card was complete!

MCT 36th New Release Sneak Peek Day 2

Good Morning and welcome to Day 2 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 36th  Release!
So what did you think of yesterday's projects and sneak??? Pretty AWESOME right???
Well there is TONS more!!!!

Today the DT will be showcasing projects using the new set~
Wicked Fun Dies & Trick or Treat
I am super exited for these stamps and dies! I just LOVE Halloween time and these are so perfect for all your Halloween projects!
Here is my card for today.... Have to say I LOVE this one :)
OMG how fun is that spider and web?? Emma really knows how to WOW us all with her creativity when it comes to designing new stamps and dies!
Anyways I wanted to keep the spider, his web and the sentiment as my focal point so I made my card pretty simple. I again used my new favorite die~ the Stitched Rectangle Frame and die cut one layer in designer paper. I made a smaller rectangle shape using the same die to layer on top. Before adding the layer, I die cut the new web and cut it in half to place behind the top rectangle layer. I wrapped it with some Trendy Twine and adhered it to my card mat. Next I die cut that fun new spider, stamped my sentiment onto some white card stock and die cut it out using one of the Bunches of Circle Dies. 
I then popped the sentiment up onto the card as well as popping the spider up hanging down from the sentiment. I added a glittery enamel dot to the spot where the spider web hangs down to the spider and my card was complete!

we have been sneaking the rectangle stitched frames for a while now...getting you all super excited about this new die!!! So here is the card I made using this new set.... 
Aren't those card mats just AWESOME???  Sure love the stitching that Miss Emma added to these!! 
So here is how I made my card. I die cut 2 of the different shaped rectangle dies, one in white cardstock and the other in the designer paper. I added a smaller rectangle stitched die in between the two layers by using the same die and just manipulating the cuts to make the size I wanted. Next I die cut both of the new frames, again in my matching designer paper and stamped my sentiment onto the bottom right hand corner.
Next I added some of the leaf dies cuts from the Piles of Smiles set and tied them all together using some orange hemp twine.
I corner layer of burlap for texture and some random enamel dots and my card was completed!

Congrats on Your New Arrival....{Trendy Twine DT}

Good morning everyone! 

It is my turn to share a project over on the Trendy Twine blog!
All month long the DT is sharing baby projects using the Chocolate Cupcake and Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine.
For my project today I made some baby boy shower favors. I really LOVE the way these turned out!!!
How fun would these be to give to your shower guests? Now I made mine for a baby boy but change up the colors and add some Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine and you can make these for a baby girl too. To make these~ which is very quite simple, I used the Medium Candy Bags and wrapped my chocolate nuggets using matching blue and brown cardstock. Once they were all wrapped, I slid them into the candy bags and sealed them up, punching a hole in the top to add my tags.

Next, for my tags, I used the dies from My Creative Time and layered some white cardstock on top of the matching brown cardstock. I stamped my sentiment onto the bottom  using the Many Greetings stamp set from MCT and then using my Cameo and a file I picked up in the Silhouette Store, I cut the adorable elephant.
I popped him up onto the tag, adding a black enamel dot for his eye and then tied the tag onto the candy bag with a double bow of the Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine.
So aren't these fun???? Sure to be a hit at a baby shower for sure.

Trendspotting SEQUINS w/ PKS!

Hi everyone!
This is my second post for today :)

~If you are looking for my Inspiration Wednesday project with My Creative Time please click HERE or scroll down to the next post~

I'm on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog today to share a trendspotting project with you today.  
My inspiration came from a picture I saw on Pinterest of these sequins. 
Mercy Tiara: Scraproom Sunday: Sequin Storage
Pinterest image found HERE
I LOVE using sequins on my projects and making shaker cards and tags. Since I have a growing supply of sequins, I am always looking for ways to store them. Pinterest to the rescue :) I actually started storing my sequins in these little glass jars but quickly realized that there is no good way in my small craft space to organize them. So I took to another storage solution....
This is only a few of my sequins...It is the perfect storage solution for me! The container trays can be stacked on top and placed on a shelf..out of the way but still accessible when I am searching for the colors I need for a project.

Now onto my project....I love how fun a card or tag can be when it is made into an interactive one, such as a shaker. I have 2 shaker tags to share, perfect for adding to a treat or gift bag.
Since Halloween is right around the corner and Christmas will be here before we know it, I made these 2 holiday tags. Let's take a closer look at them.
 *******************
 My first tag is this cute Halloween one. I used some green and orange sequins for this shaker and added them to the center of a tag I designed in the silhouette studio. This is a very simple tag design, a basic tag shape with a smaller tag shape cut out of the center. If you have never made a shaker card, there are several tutorials on Pinterest and/or YouTube. They are very easy to make!
Anyways once my shaker part was finished I embellished the front with the pumpkin from the Cottage Cutz set and stamped his face using the Pumpkin Face stamp set. Before completely assembling the tag, I did stamp the inside of the shaker part with my Halloween sentiment.
I finished my tag off with some more randomly places sequins, a May Arts ribbon, a fun sparkly button and some Totally Black Trendy Twine.

*********************************
Here is my Christmas shaker tag. It was done the same way as the Halloween one, except I added green and red sequins inside the shaker part. I found this cute Christmas tree in the Silhouette store and just added my sweet PKS face to him. Some chalk and white gel pen to his cheeks for a little more cuteness and he was placed onto my tag. 
I finished off the tag in the same way as well. Some May Arts ribbon, a green sparkly button and some Totally White Trendy Twine.

So there is my trendspotting project. I know I love adding sequins to my projects.
These are a few other cards I have made using my PKS and sequins :)
Sequins make awesome embellishments
and
if you have yet to make a shaker card....you should really give it a try!
They are so fun and whomever receives one will surely LOVE it!!!

Hope you like these project and find some inspiration from it, thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT hump day!
