Happy 100th Birthday.....{MCT Cook & Craft}

Good Morning!
I am sharing a post today for MCT's Cook -N- Craft series where we get to make any kind of project BUT we also share a favorite recipe.
For my project today, I had a request from a friend to make a special birthday card for her grandma who is turning 100 on Tuesday. Since they are going to have a big birthday celebration, I also thought I would share one of my FAVORITE summer time salads that is perfect for a picnic, backyard b-b-que, or in my situation, a just because snack. 
Let's take a look at my card first....
The birthday lady loves to garden and her favorite colors are yellow, pink, purple and green. I incorporated all of those colors into my springtime inspired card.
I used several MCT stamps and dies and love the way this bright and cheerful card turned out!
I started with a kraft cardstock base, added a layer of white cardstock and then die cut the pretty polka dot designer paper with the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die.
Using both the XL Label Die and the Stitched XL Label Die I made the focal part of my card. The adorable Watering Can Die is from this past new release~ and I added some pretty flowers from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. 
Moving along on my card, I die cut the "100"  from the Stitched 4X6 Journal Dies and adhered them to my card front. Using the sentiment from Prehistoric Holidays, I stamped the Happy above the 100 and the Birthday below. I also added the "th" using the Write On stamp set.
Finally I finished my card by added a few hearts from another new release~ Thank You Mom.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now onto my recipe.....
Again it is such a yummy salsa perfect for chips and makes the best side dish to take to a party. Let me tell you it will be gone in no time and is highly addictive!!
Ingredients
1 (15 ounce) can black-eyed peas
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper

1 (4 ounce) can diced jalapeno peppers
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 cup Italian-style salad dressing
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

Directions
In a medium bowl, combine black-eyed peas, black beans, corn, onion, green bell pepper, jalapeno peppers and tomatoes. Season with Italian-style salad dressing and garlic salt; mix well. Cover, and refrigerate overnight to blend flavors.

Serve with tortilla chips

So I hope you have enjoyed my card and yummy recipe!

Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day......{MCT Too Die For Tuesday}

Good morning everyone!
I am sharing a card today for My Creative Time's 
"Too Die For Tuesday"
This is where we share ideas on how to stretch your dies.
Since Mother's Day is right around the corner, I got a jump start on making my MIL her card. 
She loves to color purple and here is the card I made for her....
I used lots of MCT dies for this card, and created an ombre effect using the More Stitched Edges Dies.  
I started by die cutting each of the purple cardstock colors with the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die~(size medium) Then using the wave die, I cut the each of the colors to the size I wanted, making sure each piece fit into the piece next to it....like a puzzle. I was able to have the stitching on both the tops and bottoms of each panel as well as the wave stitching thought each section. The sections were then taped on the backside and a piece of foam was added to pop the whole panel up onto the white cardstock mat.
Before popping it up and adding the foam to the backside, I used the newly released set~ Thank You Mom and die cute the flower right into the panel. Since it was now the negative section, I could add the green cardstock to the backside for the stem and I popped up the purple flower onto the front. Some fun dimension as well as a pop of color.
To complete my card, I die cut the largest of the Small Treat Labels in white cardstock and stamped my sentiment using again the new release set~ Thank You Mom

What do you think of my card? I hope I gave you another idea on how to use those awesome MCT dies!!!

So Many Books

Miss Emma has done it! Made an awesome bookmark die that comes with so many fun sentiments and dies!
One of the sentiments that comes with this set is the quote from Dr. Seuss that I just LOVE.
I used that sentiment and made a Dr. Seuss inspired bookmark.
I found some red/white striped designer paper and die cut that out with the bookmark die. Then using the die again, I cut a piece of black and blue cardstock that I trimmed down to make the layers.
Using my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment onto the center piece of cardstock and layered everything to make my bookmark. 
Adding an eyelet will make the bookmark last longer and several pieces of Trendy Twine were added for the top.
Finally, I die cut and stamped some of the new hearts from the So Many Books set and added them onto the bookmark.

Happy Easter....{MCT Made in Minutes}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to 
Made in Minutes 
with 
If you are new to my blog or  MCT's  Made in Minutes post, it is where we create something that could be created quickly or mass produced.

For my project, I made some sweet Easter treats using several MCT stamps and dies BUT I was able to make both of these projects from start to finish in under 20 minutes!
Take a look.....
So to make my projects I started with some cute designer paper from I believe Echo Park (???) and used the Treat Pouch Die to make my pillow boxes. 
Next I grabbed the tag from the Mini Chalkboard Tags set and stamped the sentiment using the Teeny Tag Holidays set.
Of course I needed to add a bunny and an egg so I pulled out the new Mini Bunny Dies and an oldie set~ Ears to You and die cut both the bunny and the egg. 
The tag was still missing something so I decided to add alittle grass using the Pretty Edges Dies. 
Once I had the tag all assembled, I attached it to my pillow box using some hemp twine. That twine was then wrapped around the pretty green ribbon which holds my pillow box closed tightly.
For the finishing touch I added alittle Nuvo Crystal Drop to each of the bunnies for their cottontails :)

So what do you think???
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!

BLAH...BLAH...BLAH.....{MCT National Weird Holiday}

Good Morning Everyone!
It is Weird Holiday over on the MCT page and today I am sharing a card for
Blah Blah Blah day which is celebrated on April 17th.

What is Blah Blah Blah Day?? 
According to the post found HERE ......
"Sometimes it seems as if everyone is a critic. Are you fed up with your nearest and dearest suggesting you lose weight, give up smoking or paint that ceiling? Or, even if nobody is hounding you, are you all too aware that you’re putting off until tomorrow things that should have been done yesterday?
If any of these questions strike home, then Blah Blah Blah Day is the opportunity to stop procrastinating and get to grips with all those stalled projects and broken promises right now!
This unusual holiday was created by Wellcat, a holidays and herbs company. It is celebrated around the world – if celebrate is the right word for this particular day. The best way to mark it is by digging out and dusting off those forgotten New Year’s resolutions and making another start on them, before the blahs and the blues strike all over again" 

Here is the card I made.......
To make my card I used several MCT stamps and dies. I just love using older sets that we sometimes tend to forget about.

I started with my usual A2 card base, white card stock mat and a Stitched Rectangular Frame Die designer paper mat. Next I used the super fun Stitched Restroom Peeps Dies and cut the lady out using more matching designer paper. Since it is Blah Blah Blah day, I grabbed the Fun Speech Bubbles Die and die cut those out of pretty striped designer paper (all the designer paper is from the Bowties paper pad from Basic Gray)
Each of the lettering was then stamped onto a speech bubble using the set Alpha Pack and then popped up onto the card front using foam squares.
The card was then put together adding the Fun Stitched Edge in the matching striped designer paper to the bottom of my card. 

A super fun card to design, put together and give out...don't you think??

Sending Hugs & Happy Thoughts.....{MCT Thoughtful Thursday}

Good Morning everyone!
I hope you are all having a GREAT week so far!!!

It's Thursday  which means time for another
Spring is in the air here so my card was inspired by some of the beautiful flowers that are starting to come into the stores around town using the newly released Beautiful Day set.
Take a look and let me know what you think.....
I got a little inky with my card today and played around a bit with masking....not bad for my first time I have to say :)
To make my card I started with a white card stock mat that was die cut using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die
Next I stamped the flowers randomly around the bottom of the card mat using the the Beautiful Day set. The flowers were colored using my copic markers and for some added dimension, I used my white gel pen and some white Nuvo Crystal drops for the centers.
Once the crystal drops were dry, I die cut the same flowers and laid them over the stamped images. Using Salty Ocean Distress Ink, I inked over the white card mat and when the die cuts were pulled up it left a beautiful colored background and a pretty white border around the flowers.
Moving onto the finishing touches of my card, I die cut a piece of black card stock and added the border using the set Pretty Edge Dies
The sentiment, also from the Beautiful Day set was stamped onto the banner die from Chocolate Greetings
One more flower colored with my copics was added above the banner sentiment to complete my card.

So what do you think of my card? I love the background and if you haven't tried masking yet, you really need to!!!

Birthday Wishes....{MCT Tag it Tuesday}

Good Morning everyone!!
It is Tag It Tuesday with My Creative Time 
and I am sharing a fun treat with a birthday  tag using the newest release Stamp/Die sets~ Long Treat Box Die & Make a Splash
Take a look.....
If you didn't get a chance to hop with us this past weekend, you can checkout all the awesome DT inspiration by starting HERE. This release (like all of Miss Emma's releases) was AWESOME and I am totally loving the new Long Treat Box Die!

I used that die with some pretty rainbow designer paper from DoodleBug Designs to make my treat box. Since I knew that I wanted to make a birthday treat with a balloon tag, I pulled out my Stitched Circle Balloon Dies and cut 2 of the smallest ones using matching colored card stock.
The smaller of the balloons was stacked onto the larger balloon, right above the sentiment from the new set~ Make a Splash.
I also added that small heart, also a die from the new set Make a Splash.
To complete my project, I wrapped a white ribbon around the treat box and tied it into a small bow. To attach my balloon tag onto my treat box, I did so with a cute mini clothes pin.
Filled with some treats, and maybe some $, this would make such a cute birthday present for someone special!

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!

Lucky...{MCT Whatever Wednesday}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to
Whatever Wednesday
with
My Creative Time!

For my project today, I made a St. Patty's day card for my husband using several MCT dies and stamps.
Take a look and let me know what you think....

To make my card I started with a kraft cardstock base, added a layer of polka dot green designer paper and die cut a piece of white cardstock using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die. 
Using the white cardstock and my MISTI, I set up the stamp sentiment and the die lettering so everything was lined up and even on the card mat. Once I was happy with the placement of everything, I taped down the lettering and stamped the sentiment in place.
Running my white cardstock mat through my Big Shot, I die cut the lettering out which was then taped onto the card base.
A fun design having the designer paper peek through the die cut lettering! Next I added the adorable stamped shamrock from the Mini Lolly Add On set and popped it up onto the card.
For my finishing touch, I used the new Pretty Edge Dies and die cut the tiny hearts to randomly glue around the whole sentiment.

Recipe:
