PPPR: Color Inspiration Challenge: You Rock!

 Hi, today I have a card to share that I created for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons: Color Inspiration Challenge. For this challenge, I used the adorable 80's Girl cutting file


When I saw the pretty colors, I just knew I wanted to use the cute little 80's Girl cutting file. For her face, I used Peachy Keen Stamps: The Moodies Face Assortment. I colored the eyes with a Copic marker and chalked her cheeks with Inkadinakado Chalk Ink. I added a cute little heart to the bow from My Creative Time: You Had Me At Meow. I added Glossy Accents to her shoes, earrings, and heart. 

For the base of my card and the American Crafts: Everyday pattern paper background mat, I used the My Creative Time: Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies. For the Recollection's pink paper mat, I used the More Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies



I cut out a pink strip using the My Creative Time: Stitched Belly Band Dies. I then stamped on the sentiment from Pink by Design: Sweet Grams using Versamark Ink along with Recollection's Black Embossing Powder. 

I finished the card by adding some bright pink sequins.

MCT: Favorite Die of the Month: Baby Word Die

Hi, today is the Favorite Stamp or Die of the Month over on the My Creative Time Blog. This month Emma has pick the "Baby Word Die" as her favorite!! If this adorable little die has been on your wish list you can find it here at a discount price! This set will be on sale the rest of January!

The sale will end January 31st, 2016 @ 12:00 a.m. PST! So you'll want to snag this up soon at a great price.

I decided to create a cute little tag featuring the "Baby Word Die" along with some other wonderful MCT products!!


I first traced the onesie die from Hello Baby Stamp Set onto Kraft card stock. Then I used a White Gel pen to create faux stitching around the edges. Next, I used the same die to cut out the gingham pattern paper onesie out.

I stamped the cute little giraffe also from the Hello Baby Stamp Set and then cut it out with the coordinating die. I colored the giraffe with Copic markers and chalked his cheeks with Inkadinkado chalk ink. I gave him a little bow that was stamped and paper pieced from the You Had Me At Meow Stamp Set.

I layered the giraffe on the onesie using Stitched Starburst Dies for the vellum starburst and Bunch of Fun Circle Dies for the white card stock circle.

I then cut the coordinating pieces of the onesie and the word "baby" out of white card stock. I colored them with a Copic marker and then added them to the onesie. I then stamped on the word "Precious" using the Teeny Tag Greetings. I added clear Wink of Stella to the "baby" word die cute as well.

I finished the little tag by adding a pretty bow at the top along with sequins to look like snaps on the onesie. This will look so cute on a present or gift bag. 



Products used:

Recollection's Card Stock
Recollection's Green Gingham Pattern Paper
Recollection's Vellum

My Creative Time: 51st Edition Release: Sneak Peeks Day 3

Hi, and welcome to day 3 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 51st Edition Release. Today we are sneaking the fabulous new Cute Tag Set. You are going to love these new tags!! 


When I saw these new tags I saw them in a couple different ways. For my first idea, I thought it looked like a present with a big bow on top. I cut out two of the inside tag layers in blue and orange card stock. I then stamped the Stripey Background Stamp II onto the blue card stock and cut off the top of the tag. I then proceeded to cut off the bottom of the orange tag. I glued them onto the outside layer tag and added on a piece for the top of the present that was cut out using the Vintage Stitched Label Die. Then I used the smallest banner from the Trio Stitched Banner Dies to create the ribbon on the side of the present. 

I stamped the adorable little dinosaur from the Prehistoric Holidays Stamp Set and cut him out with a coordinating die. I colored the spots in with a Copic marker. I accented them with a white Gelly Roll pen and clear Wink of Stella. I then stamped his little party hat and colored it in with Copic markers as well. I then cut the hat out with a coordinating die and added some Wink of Stella to it. 
I stamped the birthday sentiment onto a smaller tag using the Teeny Tag Greetings. Then I tied it around the tag using American Crafts Twine.  I pop-dotted the dinosaur and added him to the tag.

I finished by adding silver sequins to the tag.

Products used:

Recollection's Card Stock
Versamark Ink
Recollection's Snow Embossing Powder
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Copic Markers
White Gelly Roll Pen
American Crafts Twine
Silver Sequins


 The second way I saw this tag was that it look as though a flower was on the top. I created the base of the flower by cutting out one tag and then flipping the die to cut out the other side. Then I layered on the petals, leaves, and flower center from the Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves Dies on the base flower. I added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to the leaves.

I stamped on the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, also from the new tag set. Then I stamped the little floral image from the Cute Tag Set.  I colored it with Copic markers and cut it out with a coordinating die. I added clear Wink of Stella to it as well. 

I finished the tag by adding a couple of clear Pearlized sequins from my stash. 

Products Used:

Bazzill 'sRed Card Stock
Recollection's White,  Green,  and Kraft Card Stock
Memento's Tuxedo Black Ink
Copic Markers
Wink of Stella: Clear
Pearl Sequins

My Creative Time: 51st Edition Release: Sneak Peeks Day 2

Hi, and welcome to day 2 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 51st Edition Release. Today we are sneaking the wonderful new You Matter Stamp Set. This set has so many great sentiments!! I decided to pair one with the adorable little girl from You're A Hit Valentine Stamp Set.



I first stamped and colored the adorable little girl from the You're A Hit Valentine Stamp Set with Copic markers. I paper pieced her bows and dress from scrap paper I had. I chalked the cheeks with Inkadinakdo Chalk Ink and then cut her out with a coordinating die. I cut the gold heart out with another die from this set and pop-dotted it onto the original image.

For the card, I first used the Stitched Postage Frame Dies to cut out the pretty pattern paper. Then I matted it with light blue card stock. I then added a vellum doily that was cut out using the Bunch of Stitched Doilies Dies. I then layered on a white card stock circle that was cut out using the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. Then I added the little girl.

I first cut out a strip of vellum using the Stitched Belly Band Dies. Then I used Versamark Ink along with Recollection's Snow Embossing Powder to stamp on the sentiment from the new You Matter Stamp Set. I then finished the card by adhering the sentiment vellum strip and some gold sequins.

Colorbok: Light Blue Card Stock
American Crafts Pattern Paper
