America's Favorite Pastime! {Trendy Twine DT project}

Good Morning Everyone!
It is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog and I am here to share another "Summer Night" project using the featured products of the month~
 Aqua Midnight along with the Clear Pillow Boxes
When I think of summer nights, I think of sitting outside watching America's Favorite Pastime~ Baseball!!! Since my son plays, we spend many of summer nights at the ball field and a wildly popular ball park snack are sunflower seeds. 
Using a Small Pillow Box, I filled it with a very generous serving of sunflower seeds. Next I wrapped the gorgeous Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine around the pillow box to keep it sealed extra good.
I added a cute heart tag, a matching mini clothes pin and held it all in place by tying the ends of my twine into a bow. I actually used 4 different My Creative Time stamps and dies for the tag. The Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies was for the heart. Then for the sentiment and circle I used the Scallop & Stitched Circle die along with the Grand Slam stamp set. Finally for the baseball stamp and the circle die cut, I used again the Grand Slam stamp set and the smallest of the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine - Aqua, White, & Black Bakers Twine 
10 Clear Pillow Boxes, Medium

Here is the card I made using one of the sentiments from this set.....
I found this great card on Pinterest that I used as my inspiration for this card. I am trying to find the pin again so I can link back to it too. I of course forgot to pin it to my board so if and when I find it I will add it here!
Anyways for my card I used the newly released Stitched Squares Inside and Out for the focal point of this card. I backed the cut outs with some designer paper from My Minds Eye and then stamped the sentiment from the Springtime in Paris set.
Some enamel dots and 2 Stitched Stars finished up my card.

For my card today, I get to showcase the new set~ 
Fall Friends!
I used the Stitched Squares Inside and Out (new release) to make a square shaker card, this one unlike yesterday's mini cards seen HERE is a 4x4 size. I used the sweet pumpkin, leaves and acorn stamps and dies from the Fall Friends as the focal images for my card. Once I got the base of my card die cut out and all the layers assembled, I filled the center square with some orange, green and brown sequins..the color scheme for my fall card.

Next I die cut the pumpkin stamp and one of the acorns and colored them using my copic markers. They were then both popped up onto the front of my card using some foam adhesive.

Here is the close-up of the leaves and acorns placed in the top corner of my card. I die cut and colored these with my copic markers and embellished with a small hemp twine bow. Some random sequins on the card front and my fall card was completed.

MCT 46th New Release Sneak Day 4

Morning everyone and welcome to Day  4 of sneaks for the 
My Creative Time 46th New Release!!
I hope you have enjoyed all the AWESOME projects so far this week. We have one more sneak to share....
Prehistoric Holiday’s

For my projects today, I used some of the added elements and sentiments in this new set to make some mini holiday cards. 
I started out the same way with all 3 cards. I used the new Stitched Squares Inside and Out set to make the base of my cards. Each card measures 3x3 and is so adorable!
I layered the above card with some black cardstock, designer paper from Doodlebug Designs and then a smaller white cardstock square. I stamped my sentiment and placed everything aside to color and die cut the party hat. I colored it using my prismacolor pencils and embellished it with some gold stickles to match the pattern paper. Some Totally White Trendy Twine finished off my card.

My Christmas card was done the same way as above. I used My Minds Eye designer paper for the second layer, colored my santa hat with my prismacolor pencils and embellished it with some diamond stickles. I added the beautiful Candy Cane Trendy Twine to finish this card off.

My final card is this cutie Halloween one. Besides using the new set Prehistoric Holiday’s, I added the adorable spider from the Too Cute To Spook set. Embellished with orange stickles and Totally Orange Trendy Twine finished this card off.

And here are all 3 cards together! I am so loving these fun cards and can not wait to give them to friends!

Morning everyone and welcome to Day  3 of sneaks for the 
My Creative Time 46th New Release!!
It has been such a GREAT few days of sneaks so far and we still have a few more ADORABLE sets to sneak!
Today the DT is showcasing the new stamp and die set~
Fall Friends
another totally ADORABLE set!
For my card today, I played along with the Freshly Made Sketches 200th Sketch challenge which our AWESOME Miss Emma is sponsoring. I used the below sketch and designed my card around the sentiment "Nuts about You" from the new Fall Friends stamp and die set. I started my CAS card off by stamping the Grainy Wood Background stamp onto some kraft cardstock. Next I stamped my sentiment from the Fall Friends stamp set and die cut the "U" using the Uppercase Fun Dies. I used the "U" as a "somewhat fork" in a tree and added some of the fun new acorn and leaves, again from the Fall Friends stamp and die set. Colored with my copics and popped up with some foam dots for added dimension finished off my card.
Here is the sketch that the Freshly Made Sketches DT will be using for this challenge! If you have some extra time, we would LOVE it if you joined in and played along!!! All the details can be found over on their blog HERE starting at 8:00am EST

MCT 46th New Release Sneak Day 2

Morning everyone and welcome to Day 2 of sneaks for the 
My Creative Time 46th New Release!!
Yesterday was packed with AMAZING inspiration showcasing 2 new products!
Well get ready for today because the DT will be sharing another AWESOME stamp and die set~
Too Cute To Spook!
My card for today uses several older MCT stamps and dies which I combined with the new Mummy stamp and matching die from the Too Cute To Spook set and the Stitched Square Die. I wanted to make my own background paper so I used the Build a Chevy Background and Slate and Smoke Hybrid Ink. I stamped my sentiment directly under my square die cut and embellished the remaining card around that focal point. I used one of the Stitched Sweetheart dies, the sweet new XXXXX border die, some random enamel dots and then stamped and die cut the adorable mummy. The picture does not show the added wink of stella I added to him but in real life he is full of sparkle!

Stitched Squares Inside and Out & Fangtastic Day (Freebie)

Isn't that Vampire just too cute??? I LOVE him and he is going to be perfect for all those fun Halloween projects!!! To make my card, I used several older MCT dies and paired them up with the highly requested new Stitched Squares!! 
Like I always begin my cards, I used the largest Stitched Rectangular Frame Die and die cut my card mat. Next I used 2 of the new Stitched Square dies and made a mat for my vampire. I embellished the square mat using the small heart die from the Stitched Layering Hearts set and saved the cut out for the sentiment bubble. I also used the Stitched Decorative Banner die and some enamel dots. The sentiment, which is also part of this releases Freebie, was stamped onto a Fun Speech Bubble die, popped up using some foam adhesive and embellished with the extra heart die.
Finally to complete my card, I stamped and die cut out the cutie Vampire and colored him using my prismacolor pencils. He was then popped up onto the square mat right under the speech bubble. 

"FREEBIE STAMP"

Our "Freebie" for this release is this ADORABLE "Fangtastic Day" stamp and die set. It will be given to the FIRST 150 shoppers!
