My Creative Time: Anything Goes: Emoji Favor Boxes

Hi, today is Anything Goes over on the My Creative Time Blog. My friend wanted me to help create some treat party favors for her daughter's Emoji birthday party. She had seen these awesome favor boxes on Pinterest and they inspired me to create my own favor boxes with a bit of a twist. She wanted one to be special for her daughter's birthday and her son requested I create a Poop Emoji one. I never thought I would be creating a Poop Emoji but thankfully Emma had the perfect die to help make one! I think they all turned out pretty cute!


Each little favor box was cut out using the Stitched Favor Box Die and each favor box had a Peachy Face stamped onto it. All of the faces have a MCT product with it on it as well.Each one has a little saying that coordinates with the Emoji that was stamped onto a Vintage Stitched Label Die cut. 

The little Smiley Emoji has a Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow added to the top to make it special for the birthday girl. The sentiment is from the Greatest Handy Man Stamp Set

The Poop Emoji was cut out using the ice cream die from the You Make Life Sweet Stamp Set.  The bottom of the die cut was cut off by hand. The sentiment for this favor box is also from the You Make Life Sweet Stamp Set



The Nerdy Emoji's mouth was colored in with Copic markers. The little bowtie is from the You Had Me At Meow Stamp Set.  The sentiment was made by using a couple of stamps from the Write On Stamp Set.

The Heart Eyes Emoji's eyes are from the Stitched Heart Layering Dies.  The sentiment is from the Be Your Best Selfie Stamp Set.

The Laughing Emoji's tears were stamp and cut out with the coordinating dies from the Showers Of Happiness Stamp Set.  The tears and mouth were colored in with Copic markers. A white gel pen was used to accent the eyes. The sentiment is also from the Be Your Best Selfie Stamp Set.



The Cool Emoji's glasses are from the Berry Special Stamp Set.  The outside of the glasses and the mouth were colored in with Copic markers. The glasses were accented with a white gel pen. The sentiment is from Snow Buddies Stamp Set.

The Kissy Emoji's little heart is from the 4x4 Journal Die & More.  The winking eye was accented with a white gel pen. The sentiment is from the Seasonal Greeting Stamp Set

The Tongue Out Emoji's tongue is a petal that was cut off from the Stitched Petals Dies.  The tongue was then colored with Copic markers. The eye lid and mouth were colored with Copics as well. The sentiment was made up using a couple of stamps from the Bracket Sentiments Stamp Set

Hi, today is Thoughtful Thursday over on the My Creative Time Blog.


The little kitty cat was stamped and cut out with a coordinating die from the You Had Me At Meow Stamp Set. The little face was carefully masked so it didn't stamp and then the little cut outs for the whiskers were cut off by hand with scissors.  Then a Peachy kitty face was stamped onto the cat image. Copic markers were used to color in the face and add stripes on the kitty. A white gel pen was used to added accents and color in the end of the tail. The collar was also stamped and cut out from the You Had Me At Meow Stamp Set

The little flower by the kitty was created by combining the grass from the Home Sweet Home Stamp Set and the little flower from the Way To Go Stamp Set. The flower was colored in with Copic markers and the grass was colored with a distress ink. The circles on the Doily were cut out using the Bunch of Fun Circles and the More Stitched Circle Dies

My Creative Time: To Die For Tuesday

Hi, today is To Die For Tuesday over on the My Creative Time Blog. The design team is showing how to use Emma's amazing dies in new ways. I used my dies to cut out the center of the Frame Die to create a shadow box look on the front of my card. I love how it turned out!


The pattern paper mat was cut out using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die. The flower was cut out using dies from the Stitched Daisy Die set and the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. All of the flower pieces were cut out using stiffened felt. The flower center was colored in with a Copic marker. The word "thanks" was cut out using a die from the Thank You & Frame Die Set


To create the shadow box window with the Frame Die,  several dies were used to cut out the center of the die cut. 




1. After the Frame is cut out, use the Stitched "Capture" Frame Die to cut out the middle of the frame.  

Partially cut out one side of the middle by only running the die through the cutting machine half way. 

 

Then very carefully, flip the die to the other non-cut side and match it up to the grooves of the cut lines. Then partially cut out the other side. 



2. Use the die from the 4x4 Journal Die & More Die Set to cut out the next area on both sides.





3. Use the smaller of the Treat Label Dies to cut out the bit of curved area at the top of the die cut on both sides. 


Then you will have your cut out Frame




Then the Frame was pop dotted all the way around it and added to the card to create the shadow box look. 

Products Used:

Simple Stories Pattern Paper
Paper Studio Card Stock

Hi and welcome to Day 4 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 67th Edition Release. Today we are sneaking the fabulous new Stitched Favor Box. I love this new little treat box!! With school ending for the year, I thought these little apple felt boxes would be fun to give to teachers and friends with a sweet little treat inside.  I really love how they turned out.



The new Stitched Favor Box was cut out of three colors of stiffened felt and put together. The little flower was cut out using the Jr. Rolled Flowers in white felt. The little flower center was cut out using a die from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. For the apple stem, the bottom of the largest Stitched Large Balloon Die was cut out of brown felt. The leave is from the Stitched Leaves Dies. The three pieces were glued onto the one side of the tab so you only have to open the one side to get to the treats. 

The little worms were stamped and cut out with the coordinating die from the Grad Night Stamp Set.  Each worm was colored in with Copic markers and the cheeks chalked with pink chalk ink. The little bow ties were stamped and cut out by hand in red felt using a stamp from the You Had Me A Meow Stamp Set.  The little worms were all hot glued to the side of the felt apples.

Hi and welcome to day 2 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 67th Edition Release. Today we are sneaking the new set call Sea You Soon. This set is so adorable!! I just love the little turtle!!

Then a circle was cut out of the mat using the More Stitched Circle Dies.  Another piece of card stock was stamped with the same background stamp and a smaller circle was cut out using the same circle dies. The circles and the mat were glued together to give the look of a porthole window. To finish the look, the black jewels were glued all around the small circle. 

To create the underwater ocean background, another white mat was cut out using the Stitched Square Dies.  Then it was inked with three distress inks and water was sprinkled onto to create the look of bubbles or things floating in the water.
