Espressily for You....{MCT Made in Minutes}

Good Morning everyone!
I am up on the MCT Blog today with a Made in Minutes project to share!
This project was so fast to make, super cute and is super easy to reproduce. I ended up making 3 for a friend to give to her daughters teachers :)
Take a look at my project and let me know what you think...
I apologize now, and didn't realize when I was making these GC holders that the Coffee Gift Card Holder die is currently out of stock :( Hopefully Miss Emma will get more in before the holidays because these are so easy to whip up to give GC's in.
To make my project I used the Coffee Gift Card Holder die for the base, turning these into a card as well for writing a little message inside, die cut in kraft cardstock.
My friend asked for a teacher theme for these so I grabbed some designer paper to match her idea for the layer of the GC tops. 
The rest of the pieces were die cut using white, black and red cardstock as assembled onto the GC base.
For the sentiment, I used a saying from the Just Brew It! set. That set is retired unfortunetly but it worked for what she wanted.
I finished off the GC's with some enamel dots in the corners and these are ready to be given as gifts.

Open if you Dare....{MCT Manly Monday}

 Good Morning everyone and Happy Monday!
It is time for another Manly Monday post with My Creative Time and I am excited to share my project with you all.
With Halloween right around the corner, I have a spooky manly card to share using some of the newly released MCT stamps and dies.
Take a look at my card and let me know what you think...
I need to start off by saying that I hate spiders so to me this is a spooky card...LOL!
To make my card I started with a kraft cardstock base, a layer of black cardstock and a piece of designer paper from an older Halloween pack. The layers were die cut with the Rectangular Frame Dies and Layers set and attached to my card base.
For the focal point I used the newly released Big Web Die, cut in black cardstock and added to the card front.
For the spiders I used the Trick or Treat Dies and added them to the web using some thread. I love the thin thread for that realistic spider web threading.
For the sentiment, I used the Layered Banner Dies and a new saying from the Halloween Banner Sentiments set.
I popped the sentiment onto the front of the card, in the middle of the web to help hide where I added the thread for my spiders.
A spooky manly card for Halloween is complete :)

Well I hope you have enjoyed my Halloween Manly Monday card!

Happy Birthday pumpkin.....{MCT birthday palooza}

  Good Morning and welcome to another
My Creative Time Birthday Palooza post day!
Today I am sharing a fun shaker birthday card using some of the newly released MCT stamps and dies.
Take a look at my project and let me know what you think....  
 To make my card I started with a kraft cardstock base, added a layer of white cardstock and a top layer of adorable pumpkin designer paper.
I used the new Pumpkin Treat Topper Die to make the shaker part of the card and filled the inside with some holiday orange sequin mixes.
I added the eyes to the top of the shaker pumpkin, the stem as well and those cute leaves from the Pumpkin Lollipop Holiday Die set.
For the sentiment, I used the Gift Card Greetings set for the banners and the "happy birthday" saying and grabbed the "pumpkin" for part of a sentiment from the Teeny Tag Holidays set.
I added both banners to the bottom of the pumpkin to complete my Fall/Holiday inspired birthday card.

My Creative Time's Gift Card Giving post!
Today we are showcasing Gift Card projects using of course MCT stamps and dies!
Take a look at my project and let me know what you think...
For my project today I used the adorable newly released Pumpkin Treat Topper and added him to the front of the Fancy Gift Card Holder Die. 
I started with a kraft base and added the layer of designer paper, also cut using the Fancy Gift Card Holder Die.
For the pumpkin I used black and orange cardstock with a brown cardstock stem and a part of the vine in green cardstock from the Plant Dies set.
I went and popped up the pumpkin up onto the front of the gift card holder and added my sentiments.
The "to" and "from" are from the Gift Card Greetings set and were stamped onto the top of the holder.
