MCT Favorite Stamp/Die of the Month ~Bracket Sentiments

Morning everyone!!!
Today the MCT DT is featuring another "My FAVORITE stamp OR die of the Month! 
 This month we are featuring the fun Bracket Sentiments stamp set.  
If this set of stamps have been on your wish list, you can pick this set up HERE at a discount price.
This set will be on sale for the entire month of July! 
 This special will end on July 31st, 2015 at 12:00am PST! :) 

Using 2 of the sentiments from this stamp set, I made a sweet baby card......
That little elephant is just so super sweet and I thought matching it with the sentiment would make a cute baby card. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies for the mat and smaller mat piece then stamped the elephant onto one of the Stitched Doily Dies. 
I colored the elephant with my copic markers and added some Wink of Stella to his ears and feet.
I finished my card off by stamping the sentiment onto the card mat and tying some Dark Citrus Trendy Twine around the top in a simple bow. The entire card mat was popped up onto the card base using a piece of Fun Foam for some added extra dimension.

Bracket Sentiments

MCT Designer's Challenge....HB2U!

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another
MCT Designer's Challenge!

Here are the details for this NEW challenge:
~ Please use either the "photo inspiration" or the "Sketch" OR you are more than welcome to use BOTH to create a project of YOUR CHOICE! ;)
~ You must use at least ONE MCT item.
~ Deadline for the challenge will be on August 6th, 2015 at midnight PST!
~ Link your projects up to the Mr. Linky on the MCT Blog HERE
~ Last, but certainly not least, leave a comment & have a CRAFTY GOOD time! :) 

For my inspiration, I used both the sketch and photo to make a birthday card for my nephew.
I just love making shaker cards and since this is for my now 5 year old nephew, I thought he would get a kick out of this :)
I used my favorite card mat die~ the large Stitched Rectangular Frame Die and added some extra detail by stamping the Grainy Wood Background onto it.  Next for the shaker window, I used the frame from the 4X4 Journal Die set and altered it alittle by trimming the bottom off. Next I stamped my sentiment onto the cardstock that would be placed inside the shaker, added my sequins and sealed up the whole embellishment.
Finally I die cut some balloons using pattern paper and the Stitched Party Dies and popped them onto the front of my frame using some foam pop dots. Some hemp twine for the strings finishes up my card.

Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More

Let's Celebrate!

Good Morning everyone! It is my DT day over on the Trendy Twine Blog!

The 4th of July is just a few days away I have another fun project to share using the Large Kraft Pillow Boxes and my all time favorite Trendy Twine~the Stars and Stripes!
Did you know that you can emboss these Kraft Pillow Boxes??? I did this one with the stars embossing folder from Cuttlebug and it gave the pillow box such an awesome texture. 
I did keep my project on the CAS side to really showcase the embossing on the box as well as show that wrapping some of the gorgeous Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine around the box and attaching a sweet tag is just the finishing touches a 3D project needs.
Here is a close-up of the twine holding on the star tag. For my tag I used one of the star dies from MCT~Bunch of Stitched Stars . The sentiment is from the newly released Wishing You Both The Best and was stamped onto the banner die from the Vintage Stitched Label Dies. You can also see more the embossing and how awesome it looks. Some random sequins in the red, white and blue and this project is ready for the 4th of July celebrations (filled with some candy of course)

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Sweet Summertime Co~Blog Hop....Trendy Twine/SVG Attic

Welcome to the Trendy Twine-SVG Attic Sweet Summertime blog hop!  We are so excited to have you join us today!

At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of Trendy Twine and SVG Attic. You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will be at the top of your crafting lists!

You should be arriving from Migdalia blog
If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the Trendy Twine blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

Here is the project I created:
For my project I used the Hot Air Balloon Box from the Above It All set. Since I was using the beautiful Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine I used navy, red and white cardstock for all my balloon pieces. This file was a blast to play with...lots of pieces but very easy to assemble!

Here is a close-up of the basket part of the balloon. I used the Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine to tie each corner of the basket together. Also since this file is a box, instead of using the center part of the file, I swapped it out and placed one of the Skinny Candy Chutes from Trendy Twine and filled it with some M&M's.

The top of the balloon has this sweet banner. Both the die cut and the sentiment are from My Creative Time~Thanks for the Lift. Another bow of the Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine finishes up my project.

Already Missing You......{MCT Inspire Me Wednesday}

Good Morning everyone!
It's time for another
My Creative Time Inspire Me Wednesday.
If you are new to my blog or to what Inspire Me Wednesday is all about, it is
where the DT makes a project of our choice based on an inspiration subject.

My inspiration comes from the current
 MCT Designers Challenge Sketch and Photo Inspiration
You can find out all the details on this month's challenge by clicking HERE.
There is still plenty of time to get creating and play along!!

For my card I used both the sketch and I pulled colors from the photo inspiration and designed this card.
I flipped the sketch just a bit to add the new Stitched Doily Die in front of the banner piece. I wanted the pretty papers to be seen more as well as the details on the doily die.
Both the sentiment and that adorable flamingo are from the newly released Already Missing You stamp and die set! I just love that Emma is adding dies with all of her adorable images!!!

Welcome Baby.....{Scrapping the Little Things w/MCT}

Good Morning and Welcome to another Scrapping the Little Things with My Creative Time!
After this past week of amazing sneaks from the DT and another AWESOME new release, I used the new Hello Baby and Bunch of Stitched Doily Dies as my theme for this months PL cards. 
For my cards, I used designer paper from Lori Whitlock's~All About a Boy. As you can see I used several additional MCT goodies to help highlight those CUTIE new release stamp and dies!
Section 1 is simple 4X4 card which I added the baby onsie too. In addition to that die, I did add a small Stitched Star to the center.
The next section I used the Bracket Die as a place for my sentiment then left a nice sized space to add a picture. Finally for that 4X4 card I added the cutie baby cow which I colored with my copics.
To finish off my PL cards, I used the small 2X2 die and added 4 of the small Stitched Doily Dies. Then using the Uppercase Alphabet Dies, I spelled out the word BABY.

My Creative Time Products Used:
Stitched Bracket Dies

That is all I have for now.... I really hope you have enjoyed my  page!
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!!!!

MCT 44th New Release Reveal & Blog Hop!!!

Good Morning 
Welcome to the much anticipated 
44th 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!!)

I am so excited to share my cards I made today using this releases FREEBIE die set
Baby Word Die  along with the AWESOME Hello Baby  Set.
My first card is a baby boy shaker card using that cutie giraffe stamp and matching die set. I ended up using the Doily Die for the shaker part of my card and die cutting a circle into the center of the doily using one of the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. After filling the shaker with some yellow and brown sequins, closing up the shaker and wrapping some Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine around the whole card front, I started working on the front of my card. I die cut the giraffe and stamped him onto the die cut. Next I colored him with my copic markers and popped him up onto the front of my card. For the sentiment, I die cut the Baby Word Die in the matching brown cardstock and placed the sentiment on a slight diagonal so I could stamp the rest of my sentiment both above and below it.

I couldn't make a baby boy card without making a cutie baby girl card too...LOL so for this one I used the oh so adorable elephant! A completely different card LO for this one but I went about stamping and coloring the image the same way as well as the positioning of the sentiment. For the center border piece I did use the Rectangular Frame Die and just made the piece smaller to fit the image and sentiment. Some matching enamel dots and some Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine and my card was complete.
