My Creative Time ~ "What a Treat Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  And welcome to another "What a Treat Wednesday" with My Creative Time!  Yay...it's finally October!!!  What better way to start out this month than with a little Halloween Treat!!!  ;)


My "treat bag" is just a simple brown paper lunch bag.  I cut off some excess at the top so that it would fit the size of my tag better.  To cut my tag, I used the MCT ~ Tag Dies and the MCT ~ Tag Die Layers.  The black cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.  The fun patterned orange paper is from the Recollections ~ Halloween Basics collection.


To cut out the circular opening, I used one of the circle dies in the MCT ~ Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  Inside, I used a fun clear treat holder and inside that - I added some fun sequins and beads.  Around the outside, I added some fun Trendy Twine ~ Orange Licorice twine.  At the top, the "Happy Halloween" and little bat are from the MCT ~ Wicked Fun Dies, as is the little spider in the lower right.  (The big spider in the lower left is actually part of the patterned paper).  To finish it off, I added some white crinkle ribbon and a bow with black hemp twine.


Well that's it for me today.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a great day everyone!

ps....It's officially just a little more than 2 weeks until my next visit to Disneyland with my sister.  We are going to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.  Any guesses yet on our costumes???  Last year we were Minnie & Mickey.  This year....?????????

My Creative Time ~ "Try Me Tuesday"

Hello everyone!  And welcome to another "Try Me Tuesday" with My Creative Time.  For today's "Try Me" technique, we are making our own stencils with MCT Dies.  I don't usually use stencils all that often, so hopefully you will like how my card came out.  ;)

To make my stencil, I used some clear acetate, the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More and MCT ~ Stitched Heart Layering Dies.  Then of course I had to add in my favorite rainbow colors of Mini Distress Inks.  


If you look closely, you can see the stencil at the bottom of this photo.  I used the largest rectangle in the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More to cut my piece of acetate.  Then I used all three hearts in the MCT ~ Stitched Heart Layering Dies and randomly placed them on the acetate and cut them out.

 
The cardstock for the card base, the word "Smile" and the arrow are from Papertrey Ink.  The white cardstock is actually watercolor paper.  I was originally going to do this in a watercolor format, but that didn't work out too well...LOL.  Once again, I used the largest rectangle die in the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More to cut the watercolor piece.


Next, I used the pretty frame dies also in the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More.  Don't you just love the pretty stitching?!?  Inside, the word "Smile" is from the MCT ~ Happy Thoughts.  And the "You are loved so very much!" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Puffy Hearts Just For You.  I made it into a shaker card and put some pretty rainbow sequins in there.  ;)  The arrow is from the MCT ~ Stitched Capture Frame & Arrow Die.


Next, I laid my stencil on top of the watercolor piece.  And then dabbed in my favorite rainbow colors of Mini Distress Inks: Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Faded Jeans, and Seedless Preserves. And for a bit of something extra, I added a few sequins to some of the hearts.


Well I hope you like how my project came out for today!  And I hope this motivates you to try something new too!  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I will see you all again tomorrow.  Have a great day everyone!

My Creative Time ~ 36th Edition Stamp & Die Release : BLOG HOP

Hello everyone!  And welcome to the My Creative Time ~ 36th Edition Stamp & Die Release!!  You should have arrived here from Liz's blog.  If not, then make sure you head back to My Creative Time so that you can start at the beginning with Emma.  There is so much crafty fun, you definitely don't want to miss a thing!!!


For my projects today, I am featuring the MCT ~ All You Need Is Coffee.  And I decided to make a couple of fun little gifts that would be perfect for co-workers, neighbors, teachers - anyone really!


Hee!  Isn't this so cute?!?  I used my Cameo to cut this little k-cup holder with a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  All of the different colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  And every fun little element to decorate this piece is from the brand new MCT ~ All You Need Is Coffee.  


I heat embossed the hearts on the cup with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and Clear ~ Embossing Powder.  And then I just finished it off with a bit of ribbon at the top. Super quick and easy to make or even mass produce.


Next is a fun little gift card holder!  I got this fabulous idea from my DT Sister ~ Cindy.  You can see her creation/video here.  To begin, I cut the base using the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die.  


I used one of the dies in the MCT ~ Fun Stitched Edges to cut this pretty scalloped border.  Then I used the MCT ~ Coffee Background stamp to emboss the background with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and Clear ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder.  The cute little coffee cups are from the brand new MCT ~ All You Need Is Coffee.  And I heat embossed the patterns on each.  And as you can see, I tucked a little gift card into the pocket.  :)


Next, I made this fun coffee bean holder using the MCT ~ Treat Box Slider.  Now in order to have a little fun and see the beans inside, I used the largest die in the MCT ~ Stitched Decorative Banners to cut the window. Also, to hold the beans inside, I cut two boxes - the bottom layer is in regular cardstock and then I did a top layer in acetate so you can see through to the beans.  The fun polka dot paper for the box itself is from the DCWV ~ the Gilded Paper Stack.  The "thanks" is from the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies and More.  


Aren't these just perfect for gift giving?!?!?  Love them!  Wahoo!  :)
