31 October....{MCT Inspire Me Wednesday}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another
Inspire Me Wednesday with My Creative Time!

Today's project was inspired by a few things...
~the newest release
~Halloween coming up (I know still in a few months)
and
~this adorable card I found on Pinterest HERE

Take a look at my Halloween invite and let me know what you think....
To make my invite, I used the coffin dies from the set~ Spooky Time and die cut the base to make a mini top folding card. I then layered the coffin card base with a piece of designer paper from my stash using the top stitched layer of the coffin die.
Next I stamped my sentiment into the center of the coffin using the newly released set~ Spooky & Creepy Night
To embellish my Halloween party invite, I added a simple orange bow to the top and a few die cut bats, also from the Spooky Time stamp/die set.
Finally to finish off my card, I die cut another top layer coffin piece in white to add to the inside of the card. That way all the party details can be added for the guests!
A super quick and easy project, one that can easily be mass produced and looks adorable if I say so myself :)

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!
I know the inspiration is AWESOME!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT Wednesday !!!

MCT 70th New Release BIG Reveal & Blog Hop

Welcome to the70th New Release from 
 This has been such an AWESOME week of  amazing inspiration from the DT~ don't you think???
But there is one more day of projects with so lets get started....

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!

For my project, I get to showcase the new
Build A Fall Wreath
take a look at the card I made using this set.....
I went alittle rustic with my card for today adding lots of texture by using my stamps.
To make my card I started with a kraft cardstock base and then moved along to work on my card mat.
I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die
and another piece in the kraft cardstock also.
On the kraft cardstock, I used the Grainy Wood Background stamp and some veramark ink for the cool texture of the tree.
I grabbed my More Stitched Edges Die for the torn paper look, cut the cardstock and placed the 2 pieces aside for later.
Moving onto the white cardstock....I pulled out a few of the different leaf stamps from the new Build a Fall Wreath set and randomly stamped them onto the cardstock using Distress Ink.
Once I had the stamping the way I liked, I layered the kraft pieces onto the white cardstock making just part of the stamping show.
To then complete my card, I stamped the sentiment, again from the new Build a Fall Wreath set, added the tree die cut from the Seasonal Greetings set and die cut some of the smallest stamped leaves to pop up onto the tree.
Some light inking around the edges, foam on the back of the card mat for some extra height and mounted onto my card base completed my project.

Now for the entire release.....

Next I die cut the new pumpkin using some scrap orange cardstock and then stamped the cute face from the new  Spooky & Creepy Night.
I did add that green leaf to the top of the pumpkin using the Love to Learn set~ it is actually the leaf for the apple but it works PERFECTLY for this pumpkin too!!
Moving onto the sentiment, I used the coffee sleeve die from the Coffee Break set to stamp onto. It is one of my favorites for sentiments on the Mini Lollipop Die, it just seems to fit great!
I assembled all the parts of my project, added a mini Original Gourmet lollipop and tied it all together with some Totally Brown Trendy Twine!

Just a Note....{MCT Tag it Tuesday}

Good Morning everyone!!

It is time for another Tag It Tuesday with My Creative Time
and I am sharing a fun back to school tag using the newest release Die set~ Stitched Zig Zag Dies

Take a look.....
I found the cutest mini post it notes a while back and just recently re-found them while cleaning out my desk. The new Stitched Zig Zag die (medium size) fit perfectly onto the front so I turned it into a tag for my post its.
Using the Zig Zag Die, I taped off the outsides so my stamping of the paper would stay inside the stitched section.

I used the Get Schooled stamp set and added my paper background. I grabbed the Many Greetings stamp set and stamped the "just a note" sentiment.
That cutie heart is also part of the stitched zig zag die set and fit perfectly above my sentiment.

Moving onto one of my favorite dies~ that fun pencil from the Love to Learn set. I die cut all the pieces, assembled the pencil and then popped it up onto the front of my tag.

The finishing touches to my tag was to wrap some Totally Red Trendy Twine around the notepad and tie my tag onto it with a simple bow.

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!
I know the inspiration is AWESOME!!!!

Using the sentiment die, I cut it out with some black cardstock and then adhered it to the front of the treat box.  A piece of acetate was placed in the window to hold the treats inside and allow for the sentiment to be attached.
To finish my treat box project, I added the sun die cut from the set~
You are my Sunshine.
A small added heart onto the layered More Stitch Circle Die completed my project.

You're the only fish for me!....{MCT Trending Now}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another
"Trending Now" with My Creative Time!!
Today's trending now is UNDER the SEA and the DT is creating projects inspired by the sea or beach.
I love fish and we have several fish tanks in our house so today's project is inspired by both our fish tanks and our recent trip to the beach where we did lots of fishing.
Here is the card I made....
To make my card, I started with a kraft cardstock base, added a layer of white cardstock and then die cut some designer paper (lawn fawn~Perfectly plaid) using my Stitched Rectangular Frame Die & More set.
Next I die cut the porthole using the Lost at Sea set. I layered a piece of blue vellum under the porthole as well as a piece of white cardstock that I die cut using the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. Some added mini brads completed my porthole.
That adorable fish, coral and sentiment all come from the set~ You're a Great Catch. I stamped both the fish and coral on scrap designer paper , die cut them out and popped them up onto the front of the porthole.
To complete my card, I added some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to look like fish bubbles.

Here are some pics from our recent camping trip in Myrtle Beach.
Fishing and crabbing right outside of our camper :)

And here are a few of our goldfish. We have had some of these guys for over 7 years and they are HUGE! Currently living in a 120 gallon fish tank and a 10ft swimming pool :)

Well that is all I have for today~
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!!!!
