MCT 35th New Release Blog Hop!

Good Morning 
and 
Welcome to the much anticipated 
35th New Release from My Creative Time!

This week has been so much fun with the DT sharing amazing projects and inspiration! But we have one more day of AWESOME~NESS! 

Now 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! She really ROCKED this release (well she always does, doesn't she?? Of course!!)

Today I get to showcase the Picture Perfect stamp and die set.
I have 2 different and fun cards to share using this set. Hope you like them!

Here they both are up close and with all the details.....
For my first card I went CAS using the circle dies for the camera center and instead made a bulls-eye with the pieces. When I was thinking about my project for the hop, I sat looking though all the sentiments for a long time. Then it hit me :) I am forever forgetting birthday's and this sentiment would be PERFECT for a belated birthday card. So the inside (which I didn't picture~sorry) I made a computer generated sentiment, which says "Sorry I missed your birthday"
Now the best thing about a card like this is, you can use it for anything that you miss...LOL!

My Creative Time Products Used:
Picture Perfect (New Release)
Bunch of Fun Circle Dies
Stitched Mini Frame & Arrow Dies
Pre-Sneak Rectangle Dies
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For my next card I thought I would use another of the cute sentiments and make a fun card.
For this one, I used the fun new camera die and mini frame as my focal point. I added that adorable PKS face to the center...how cute is that????
I added some Celebration Trendy Twine and some random enamel dots to my pre-sneak card mats and then stamped the sentiment. Some glossy accents to the center of the camera and my card was complete.

My Creative Time Products Used:
Picture Perfect (New Release)
Pre-Sneak Rectangle Dies

Other Products Used:
Peachy Keen Stamps~PK-1400 Clowning Around Face Assortment
Celebration Trendy Twine
Enamel Dots, glossy accents, white gel pen, copics

MCT 35th New Release Sneak Peek Day 4

Good Morning and welcome to Day 4 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 35th  Release!

Aren't you all just LOVING the sneaks so far????? Well we have one more day of projects to share before the big reveal and blog hop!!!!!!
For our final day of sneaks,  the DT will be showcasing projects using the new set~
Tag Die Layers

This awesome set was designed by Miss Emma to coordinate with the Tag Dies...a favorite among everyone for sure!!!

 I have 2 projects to share using this set mixed with some of my favorite older MCT goodies.....

Here they each are up close......
My first project is a card I made using some of the layers that are included in the new release set, the "LOVE" as well as those zig zag dies....don't you just love the stitching running through them??? 
I started my card by layering 2 of the pre-sneak dies for next month as my card mat and then die cut the zig zags in rainbow colors. After adding them to my mat and stamping the sentiment from the Family is Everything new release I took the "LOVE" letters, added some glossy accents to them for the shiny effect and placed them in the center of the rainbow. Love this way it looks :)
CAS but in my opinion, so fun and pretty :)

  My Creative Time Products Used:
Tag Die Layers (New Release)
Family is Everything (New Release)
Pre-Sneak Rectangle Base

Additional Products Used:
glossy accents
scrap cardstock from my stash

and for my next project.....
For this project, I used the new Tag Die Layer to make a birthday tag. I started out by die cutting both the Tag Die as well as the new release Tag Die Layer in white, blue and black cardstock. I knew I wanted to make a shaker tag, so I added the blue shimmer cardstock underneath  the top layer, after adding the "happy b-day" sentiment (how fun right??? that is one of the new releases!!) 
For the shaker part, I die cut one of the balloons from the Stitched Party Dies set and added some blue sequins along with some small clear and light blue seed beads. I then finished off the balloon by adding a Totally Black trendy twine string and some more random sequins.

My Creative Time Products Used:
Tag Die Layers (New Release)
Additional Products Used:
Totally Black Trendy Twine

MCT 35th New Release Sneak Peek Day 2

Good Morning and welcome to Day 2 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 35th  Release!

Wasn't yesterday's projects just AMAZING??? Well there is LOTS more coming up this week!

Today the DT will be showcasing projects using the new set~
Family is Everything
and I have 2 cards to share using this set mixed with some of my favorite older MCT goodies.....

Here they each are up close......
I knew when I saw the paint splatters that I wanted to make a colorful card using the sentiment from the Happy Hunting stamp set. So using one of the stamps from the new Family is Everything set and some Tim Holtz Distress Ink, I randomly placed different splatters on my card mat. To add some extra embellishing to this card, I placed matching sequins on top of each stamped splatter.

 My Creative Time Products Used:
Family is Everything (New Release)
Happy Hunting
Pre-Sneak~Rectangle Base

Additional Products Used:
Sequins, Tim Holtz distress Ink

and for my next card.....
I LOVE the gorgeous word dies Emma has been creating. I just celebrated my 16 year anniversary with the hubs and made this with him in mind :)
I again sneaked a new die coming out next month as well as using the new Family is Everything word "love" die with those fun Stitched Restroom Peeps.
I shadowed the sentiment with another die cut in black to match my peeps and added a decorative border using the Fun Stitched Edges die. Since our wedding colors were red, white and black I kept to this color combo by adding a beautiful black crinkle ribbon bow to the top corner.

Back 2 School.....{Inspiration Wednesday w/MCT}

Good Morning and Happy Hump day everyone!
 It is time for another 
Wednesday Inspiration with My Creative Time 
where the DT makes a project of our choice based on an inspiration subject.

For my project, I used a card I found on Pinterest HERE as my inspiration.
I love the adorable back to school theme and design of it and knew that I could make it my own using some of Miss Emma's awesome My Creative Time stamps and dies! Plus I was able to use some of the new release stamps and dies :)

So here is my take on the inspiration.....
This card was very simple to put together and everything I used on the card besides the twine is from MCT. I started with a white card stock base and added a smaller mat of lined designer paper. Since my card is a school themed card, I did add the notebook die to the top.
Next I die cut the new Number Fun Dies from 1-7 as well as the adorable apple from the Love to Learn set. Each of the apples were cut using coordinating pattern paper...aren't they just so cute?
Finally I stamped the sentiment, using 2 different ones from the Write On set, masking parts of the sentiment to make my own.
To finish my card off, I added some Totally Red Trendy Twine.

My Creative Time Supplies Used:

Other Supplies Used:
Trendy Twine~Totally Red

So what do you think????? Want to see more projects?
Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the DT made!
I know the inspiration is AWESOME!!!!
