MCT: 46th Edition Release: Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the My Creative Time: 46th Edition Release blog hop! 

If you have made it here from Cindy's blog then you are in the right place. If you have just stopped by or have gotten lost along the way please head on over to Emma's Blog for the full hop order.

Today, I am showcasing the adorable new Prehistoric Holiday’s stamp set  along with some of my other favorite MCT products. I just love this cute little dino and he looks so cute with the little spikes I added as well. 






I used the new Stitched Squares Inside and Out dies to create the base of my card and one of the mats. I then used the 4x4 Journal Die to create the background for my little dino scene. Then I matted them both with orange Recollection's card stock. 

I first added my thought bubble to my scene using the Large Cloud Bubble Edge die. Then I flipped it to create the dirt on the ground for my scene. Easy Peasy! I stamped on the sentiment from the new Prehistoric Holiday’s stamp set onto my thought bubble. 

I stamped and colored the cute little dinosaur, the palm trees, and the little clumps of grass with Copic markers. I wanted to spice up the dino, so I knew I would have to fussy cut him out. To create his spikes, I used a Stitched Starburst Die and then colored them with Copic markers to match the him. I added white gel pen accents to his feet and eyes. I finished him by adding a tiny heart to match the sentiment from the Seasonal Greetings Stamp set



I cut out the sun's circle for the face using the Bunch of Fun Circles and then stamped on the face from the new Too Cute Too Spook stamp set. I accented his eyes with a white gel pen and then chalked his cheeks. Then I layered the circle onto the sunburst from the Build A Banner Stamp set

I pop dotted the sun, the dino, and the tree top onto the card. I finished by adding a cute little heart on the speech bubble from the Sky Is the Limit stamp set and some sequins.

For my card base and mats, I used the new Stitched Squares Inside and Out dies. They make creating a card a cinch. I cut out a vellum square so that the pattern paper behind him still showed through. I used the fun new stitches die from the new Too Cute To Spook stamp set to embellish the vellum square and to help adhere it down. 

I stamped and colored the cutie patootie little dinosaur from the new Prehistoric Holiday’s stamp set with Copic markers. Then I cut him out with the coordinating dies. Love not having to fussy cut the images all the time. I then stamped the sentiment also from this set using Versamark ink along with Recollection's snow embossing powder. I pop dotted my little dino onto the vellum square and finished by adding a few blue mini sequins.

MCT: 46th Edition Release: Sneak Peeks Day 2

Hi and welcome to day 2 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 46th Edition Release. Today we are showcasing a super cute Halloween set called Too Cute Too Spook


I first cut out two Polka Dotted Vellum pieces using the Mini Gift Bag die from the Chalkboard Birthday Stamp and die set. . I adhered them together to create the full little bag. This die is a must have!! I love how easy it is to put together. 

I stamped and colored the cute little mummy with Copic markers from the new Too Cute Too Spook. I also chalked his cheeks just a tiny bit. I added the tiny heart that I cut out using the glasses die from the You Had Me At Meow Stamp set. After I was finished with the mummy, I cut out the Just Tags die layers. I added the sentiment also from the new set on the tag with Versamark ink and Recollection's black Embossing Powder. I finished by adding the stitches and the cute little spider also from the new set being sneaked today. 

I used American Crafts Twine to tie handles on the bag and to tie the tag onto the bag. Then I added my Hershey's kisses in my goodie bag to match the sentiment.

MCT: 46th Edition Release: Sneak Peeks Day 1

Hi and welcome to day one of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 46th Edition Release. Today we are sneaking the new Stitched Squares Inside and Out dies and the Fangtastic Day stamp set.


I first started out by cutting out the Milk Carton Die in black Recollection's card stock. I then cut out another milk carton in the spider web pattern paper. I cut off the ends of the spider web carton and adhered the part that was left onto my original milk carton.

I then stamped and colored the cutest Dracula ever from the new freebie stamp set for this release, Fangtastic Day. I colored his face and clothes with Copic markers. I didn't have a black Copic marker, so I just used a Crayola one for his hair. Then I chalked his cheeks and added white gel pen accents. I finished by cutting him out with the coordinating die. 

I pop dotted him onto two layers of squares cut with the new Stitched Squares Inside and Out dies. I used Vellum to still show the pattern paper behind Dracula. I added four spiders to the corners from the Wicked Fun dies to frame him. 

I stamped on the sentiment also Fangtastic Day onto the vellum Fun Stitched Tag die cut using Versmark ink along with Recollection's Snow Embossing Powder. Then I layered it onto another tag from the Mini Chalkboard Tags stamp set. I finished the tags by adding a little bat onto the vellum tag. I  clipped the little tags to my milk carton with a Recollection's mini clothes pin.

My Creative Time: Inspire Me Wednesday

Hi today is Inspire Me Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. We are creating projects that we were inspired either from another project, a picture, or anything really. I was inspired by a little lady bug outfit my daughter was wearing. Since she is still little it made me think of the oh so cute onesie die. I thought the little lady bugs would look so cute on there.  


I first cut out a card using the adorable Hello Baby Stamp Set . I then cut out a red card stock onesie to layer onto the card. I cut out the bottom of the onesie from the set and adhered it to the bottom. For the little scallop ruffles at the top I used the ice cream die from the You Make Live Sweet Stamp set. It worked out perfectly. 

I stamped as well as cut out the lady bugs, the flowers, and the leaves from the Hey There Little Lady stamp set. If you don't have this set yet, I think it is a must have. I colored each little bug, leave, and flower with Crayola markers. I then stamped the sentiment also from the Hey There set onto a Fun Stitched Tag die. I finished by adding a some sequins all around the onesie.  


Here is the outfit that inspired my project.
