My Creative Time: Do Over Thursday

Hi, today is Do Over Thursday at the My Creative Time Blog. I decided to recreate a Treat Sleeve I previously made using the new Handyman Stamp Set


I first cut the Treat Sleeve out of a paper bag I had from Staples. I then cut a window out using the More Stitched Circle Die and covered it with a piece of acetate paper. Then I glued the treat sleeve together. 

I cut out the Belly Band and labels out of red, white, and blue card stocks. I stamped the sentiment onto the white label from the new Greatest Handyman Stamp Set.

I stamped and the colored the cute little tools also from the Greatest Handyman Stamp Set. I then embellished the band and labels with the tools. The picture doesn't show it well but I added some Wink of Stella to the tools to make them shine. 

I then put in my chocolate chip cookie and filled the top with white crinkled paper shreds that I purchased at the Dollar Store. A fun way to thank that great handyman in your life and let them know how much you really appreciate their hard work.

My Creative Time: 55th Edition Release: Blog Hop


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 on over to Miss Emma's blog for the full hop order. 

Today I am showcasing the wonderful new "Circle Balloons Dies" and "Script Words Stamps (Freebie)".



I decided to create a fun baby card with mini Circle Balloons Dies shakers for my cousin who just found out she is expecting a baby girl in the fall. I used the original Bunch of Fun Circle Dies along with a paper piercer to create the sewing marks on the little balloons. The dots on the circles are the perfect spacing for sewing on paper. Then I filled them with a fun sequin mixture and sewed them up by hand.

The hills were created by using the top of the heart from the Heart 2 Heart Love Frame Dies. The cute elephant is from the Hello Baby Stamp Set. I added the new fun Script Words Stamp to look like the elephant is holding onto it with his tail.

My Creative Time: 55th Edition Release: Sneak Peeks: Day 3

Hello and welcome to day 3 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 55th Edition Release. We are celebrating Emma's birthday month with this wonderful release!! It is as amazing and grand as she is!! Today we are showcasing the new "Make A Wish Stamp Set".


I thought it would be fun to use the new candles from the Make A Wish Stamp Set along with the Stitched Pop Out Surprise Card Die.  


I cut the candles out using a die from the new set. I then colored the wick with a black marker and then cut the flame out with another die. I added Glossy Accents to the flames and then sprinkled clear glitter on top for a bit of sparkle. I finished them by adding a little twine bow to them.


I stamped on the sentiment also from the Make A Wish Stamp Set (which fit great on the card die oval). I then embellished the card by using the little confetti star dies from the set. I love how it all easily came together and all I need to do is add a gift card on the back.

My Creative Time: 55th Edition Release: Sneak Peeks: Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 1 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 55th Edition Release. We are celebrating Emma's birthday month with the amazing new release!! It is as wonderful and grand as she is!!

For today's sneak, we are showcasing the new "Greatest Handyman Stamp Set". 


My dad has a little work shop and so I thought it would be perfect to create a Father's Day card that mimicked the pegboard of tools he has using the fabulous new set. So I had to think outside of the box a bit on how I was going to create the pegboard look. I have directions on how I created my pegboard paper below if you are interested in creating your own. It was a bit time consuming but well worth it. 

I colored the tools from the Greatest Handyman Stamp Set with Copic Markers and then I added them to the card with small brads to look like they are hanging up. I then used a silver shimmer Wink of Stella on the gray parts of the tools and then added glossy accents to the handles.

My Creative Time: What A Treat Wednesday

Hi, today is What A Treat Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. I created these fun little popsicle treats for my son to give to his classmates on the last day of school. He still has a few weeks left to go but I'm trying to get them done ahead of schedule. 


I first cut out the little tags using the Just Tag Dies. Then I created the cloud background using Tim Holtz's Distress Ink and the More Stitched Edges. Next, I created the adorable little sun from You Are My Sunshine Stamp Set. I first inked the sun's edges with an orange ink. I added the glass from the You're So Cool Stamp Set and the mouth from the You Make Life Sweet Stamp Set. I added white gel pen accents to the glasses and chalked the cheeks. I then added the sentiment also from the You're So Cool Stamp Set. I added a couple of gold sequins to the tags and then tied them to the popsicles with orange twine. A simple and fun treat to give to his classmates at the end of the year. All they have to do is freeze them and enjoy!
