If you have made it here from Brigit's wonderful blog, then you are in the right place. If you have just stopped by or have gotten lost along the way please head to the My Creative Time Blog for the full hop order. 

Today I am showcasing the Cute Gift Tag Die, the Cute Santa Hat Tag Die, the Cute Stocking Tag Die, and the Mini Christmas Greetings (release freebie).






The first tag on the left was cut out using the Cute Gift Tag Die. The present had to be dissected a bit to make the peeking Santa fit onto the top. So the bow was moved to the middle of the present. A small circle was added to the middle of the bow that was cut of using a die from the Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves Dies.  The Santa was stamped and cut out from the Pocketful of Holidays set. The image was colored in with Copic markers. The sentiment was stamped on the bottom corner of the present from the Mini Christmas Greetings.


The middle tag was cut out using the Cute Stocking Tag Die. The sentiment from the Mini Christmas Greetings was stamped on the bottom of the stocking. The cute snowman was stamped and cut out from the Pocketful of Holidays set. The snowman was colored in with Copic markers.

The last tag on the left was cut out using the Cute Santa Hat Tag Die.  The sentiment from the Mini Christmas Greetings was stamped on the middle of the hat. The hat was decorated with chevron die cuts that were cut out using a die from the Tag Die Layers set. The elf legs were stamped and cut out from the Pocketful of Holidays set. They were colored in with Copic markers.

Each tag had some thin red ribbon strung through the hole on the top. Now they are ready to be placed on a present, treat, or even a card.

My Creative Time: Weird Holiday: Happy Teddy Bear Day!

Hello and welcome to another Weird Holiday day over on the My Creative Time Blog. The weird holiday I chose to make a card is Teddy Bear Day on September 9th. I decided to create a cute little teddy bear for this card using several amazing MCT products.



To create the bear, a head was first cut out using the Stitched Bat Die.  The body and the ears were cut off of the bat die cut. The larger bear ear circles were cut out using the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  The smaller bear ear circles were cut out using the More Stitched Circle Dies.  The white circles for the eyes were cut out using the Scalloped Stitched Circles.  The eyes were stamped onto blue card stock using the eye stamps from the Bat Sentiments.  Part of the eye was colored in with a white gel pen. They were then cut out using a small circle die from the You Are Spot On Stamp Set. The nose is a heart die cut from the Stitched Zig Zag Dies.  The nose was topped with Glossy Accents. The mouth is part of the tassel die cut from the Grad Night Stamp Set.  The oval the nose and mouth are on was cut out using the Scallop Stitched Oval Dies.  The body for the bear is part of a Stitched Favor Box Die cut. The little bow on the bear is from the Hello Chickie! Stamp Set.  The center of the bow is from the Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves Dies.  A thin Sharpie was used to draw the eye lashes and the little dots on the mouth. The mouth was also inked with a bit of reddish pink chalk ink. 

The bear was put on a white circle that is layered with a pink scallop circle. Both were cut out using the Scalloped Stitched Circles.  The sentiment is from the Beary Special Thoughts Stamp Set.  It was stamped onto a Vintage Stitched Label Die cut. The label was then layered onto a Sentiment Label Die cut. The card was then embellished with some sequins for a bit of bling.

My Creative Time: Tag It Tuesday

Hi and welcome to another Tag It Tuesday over on the My Creative Time Blog. I have a fun back to school tag to share today. 




A die from the Tag Die Layers was used to create most of the pencil tag. To create the scallop edge on the yellow tag, an edge from the Fun Stitched Edges was used. The sharpened pencil was created by cutting another tag down with the corner of a More Stitched Rectangular Die.  The pencil tip was created the same way and then cut down with a circle die from the More Stitched Circle Dies.  A die from the Vintage Stitched Label Dies was used to cut out the silver piece of foil paper.

The "Welcome Back!" sentiment and the little apple are both from the Love To Learn Dies + Stamps. The little face that was stamped onto the apple is from The Last Piece to Our Family Stamp Set.  The little face was also covered with Glossy Accents. The label they are all placed onto is from the Stitched Zig Zag Dies

Hello and welcome to another To Die For Tuesday over on the My Creative Time Blog. We are showing you new way to use Emma's amazing dies. Today I have some cute animal treat boxes I've created using the Stitched Bat Die and the Long Treat Box.


The Long Treat Box was used to cut out the pig body. The Stitched Bat Die was cut out in the same pink card stock as the treat box. The head of the bat was cut off using the More Stitched Circle Dies.  The inside of the ears are die cuts from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies.  The eyes from the Bat Sentiments were stamped onto white card stock using embossing ink and black embossing powder. The eyes were cut out using a die from the You Are Spot On Stamp Set.  The eyes were pop dotted onto the face. An oval was cut out using the Scallop Stitched Oval Dies for the snout. Two little black circles for the snout were cut out using the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies.  The hooves/legs were cut out and created with the Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  The little tail was created by cutting a small strip of pink card stock and curling it with a quilling tool.




The Long Treat Box was used to cut out the cat body. The Stitched Bat Die was cut out in the same gray card stock as the treat box. The head of the bat was cut off using the More Stitched Circle Dies.  The inside of the ears are die cuts from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies.  The eyes from the Bat Sentiments were stamped onto green card stock using embossing ink and black embossing powder. Part of the eyes had to be colored in with a White Gelly Roll Pen. The eyes were cut out using a die from the You Are Spot On Stamp Set. The eyes were pop dotted onto the face.




The nose is a heart from Stitched Zig Zag Dies.  The mouth is part of the tassel die cut from the Grad Night Stamp Set.  The little cheek circles are from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. The whiskers are from the Classy Girl Accessories.  The white center of the cat is the label die from the Long Treat Box.  The arms are die cuts from the Fun Vertical Greetings Stamp Set.  A black marker was used to draw lines for the paws. The two ovals were cut of for the feet using the Scallop Stitched Oval Dies.  The circles on the feet are from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies & the hearts are from the Carved Heart Stamp Set.  The tail was created using one of the Fun Stitched Edges and then it was curled a bit with a quilling tool.
