My Creative Time: Tag It Tuesday

Hi, today is Tag It Tuesday over on the My Creative Time Blog. I created a simple tag and a simple treat box that could be mass produced pretty easily. 


The tag and its layer were cut using dies from the Holidays Tag Stamp & Die Set.  The sentiment that was stamped onto the tag is from the Ears To You Stamp Set. The cute little chick and the broken shell are die cuts from the Hello Chickie Stamp Set.  A little Peachy face was added to the chick and it was colored in with a Copic Marker. A little twine bow was added to the shell and the same twine was used to tie the tag onto the treat box. 

The Long Treat Box was cut out of Kraft Card Stock. It was then embossed with a hexagon embossing folder to resemble chicken wire. Then a small oval die from the Scallop Stitched Oval Dies,  was used to cut out four openings in the treat box. Then each egg was pushed into the treat box from the ends to fit into each die cut hole. 

Products Used:

American Crafts Twine
Recollections Card Stock
Cuttlebug Hexagon 5x7 Embossing Folder
Peachy Keen Stamps: Raggedy Dolls, Teddy, and Bird Faces
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Black Versafine Ink
Copic Marker

The Long Treat Box was cut out twice in Kraft card stock. A pattern was stamped onto the long treat box die cuts using the heart and rain drop stamps from the Make A Splash Stamp Set. They were stamped using embossing ink along with clear embossing powder. The umbrella was cut out using dies from the Showers of Happiness Stamp Set.  Using one of the Stitched Belly Band Dies,  a strip was cut out to wrap around the treat box. The strip had to be cut down to a smaller size for the treat box. Then another strip was cut out using a die from the Fun Vertical Greetings Stamp Set. The sentiment from the Make A Splash Stamp Set was stamped on to a Mini Tag Die cut. A white twine bow was added to the top of the umbrella.

My Creative Time: Cook~N~Craft

Hi, today is Cook~N~Craft day over on the My Creative Time Blog. We are sharing what meals we are cooking or what snacks we are eating while we craft along with a project to share. I have been under the weather this past weekend so I have a yummy homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe to share after my project info. 


The Frame was cut out of the pretty pattern paper and glued onto the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die cut. The pretty Doily was cut out of vellum and then a white card stock Stitched Circle was added to the center of it. The Stitched Daisy Die was used to cut out four daisy flowers and their flower centers. The flowers were then pop dotted onto the white card stock center to look like a bouquet. Glossy Accents was added to the flower centers and then they were sprinkled with clear glitter. The leaves around the flowers were cut out using the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies.  The flowers were embellished with some clear pearlized sequins. The largest Stitched Banner had to be carefully extended to fit the sentiment that was cut out using the Mini Greeting Dies.  It was then all glued on to a baby blue card stock base.
