My Creative Time: My Favorite Die

Hi, today we are featuring "My Favorite Die" over on the My Creative Time blog. This month we are showcasing the "Stitched Capture Frame with Arrow Die". If this set of dies have been on your wish list, you can pick this set up HERE at a discount price. This set will be on sale the entire month of June! This special will end on June 30, 2015 at 12:OO A.M. PST! 


I just knew I needed to make a baby card using the super adorable elephant from the new Hello Baby Stamp Set. I stamped and colored him with Copic markers. Then I gave him a little bow from the You Had Me At Meow Stamp Set. I cut his trunk slightly to make him look like he was holding the heart balloon from the Best Bots Forever Stamp Set.

For my card base and mats, I used the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies. After I had all the mats on the card, I added the Stitched Capture Frame with Arrow Die

I added the pretty doily from the new Bunch of Stitched Doily dies to the frame and adhered the cutie patootie elephant on it.  

I combined two word dies to create the sentiment I added to the frame. The "baby" word die was a freebie from this month's release and the "oh" is from from the Picture Perfect Stamp Set.

I finished the card by adding some pearl sequins from my stash.

My Creative Time: 44th Edition Release: Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the My Creative Time: 44th 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 beautiful new Bunch of Stitched Doily dies along with some of my other favorite MCT products.



I've notice lately that burlap and lace are a big trend in weddings the last few years. So that got me thinking of the beautiful new doilies. Which I decided it would be fun to make a wedding gift combining the two.

I first cut out both Tag die designs in the burlap paper from DCVW. Then I cut out a circle in the banner tag using one of the smaller circles from the Bunch of Fun Circles dies. I folded the banner tag in half and hot glued it onto the scalloped edge tag to create my wine tag. So fun and simple to do.

Then I used one of the Jr. Rolled Flowers along with the leaves from the Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves dies to add a pretty embellishment at the top of the tag.

 I cut out a doily using the Stitched Doily die and adhered it onto the tag. Then I layered two more doilies onto the original stitched doily using the new Bunch of Stitched Doily dies. The combination of them all together is just gorgeous.


I stamped and colored the pretty wedding cake from the new Wishing Both the Best stamp set. I added Stickles to the flowers to make them shimmer. I then added the two little love hearts also from this set onto the cake. I then stamped the sentiment onto the Vintage Stitched Label die.

I added two pearl sequins from my stash and then added it to the wine bottle.

My Creative Time: 44th Edition Release: Sneak Peeks Day 4

Hi and welcome to the 4th day of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 44th Edition Release. Today we are sneaking the adorable new Hello Baby and this months freebie, "Baby" word die.


I first cut out a card base using the cute little onesies die from this new set. Then I cut out another onsies in pink card stock. I embossed it with a Darice folder. I apologize that I don't know the correct name of the folder.

I stamped and colored the super adorable little giraffe using Copic markers. I then added the little bow from the You Had Me At Meow stamp set and the tiny heart also from the Hello Baby set.

I added the onesies accents pieces. Then I added one of the beautiful new doilies with a pretty Scallop Stitched Rosette on top. I had to add a small circle from the Build a Banner set to cover up the hole in the center. Then I glued the little giraffe onto the scallop. 

I used the wonderful new Baby die, which just happens to be this month's freebie. Then I finished the card by adding some pearl sequins to the onesies.

A cute by simple baby card! Would be great as a gift bag tag as well.

My Creative Time: 44th Edition Release: Sneak Peek Day 3

 Hi and welcome to day 3 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 44th Edition Release
Today we are showcasing the beautiful Already Missing You stamp set. Aren't these flamingos so pretty?!! I think so!!


I first cut out a aqua blue card stock rectangle using the Stitched Rectangular Frame dies. I then used the Watercolor background stamps with Versamark Ink and Recollection's Snow embossing powder to create a fun background.

I cut out a pretty Stitched Doily in a lighter shade of blue. Then I used a large circle punch to cut out the center. I placed a yellow circle in the cut out to look like the sun. I stamped and colored the two pretty flamingos, from the new set, with Copic markers. I cut out another doily in the aqua card stock and then cut out the waves using the Make a Splash die. I then accents the scallops with bright pink sequins.

I tied American Crafts twine onto the rectangle and accented it with the beautiful flower. I colored it as well with Copic markers. 

I stamped the sentiment onto a label from the Fun Stitched Tag dies. Then accented it with more bright pink sequins.

Now I want to take off on a tropical vacation!!

Hi and welcome to day 1 of sneak peeks for the amazing My Creative Time's 44th Edition Release. Today we are sneaking the beautiful new Bunch of Stitched Doily dies. So glad that Emma came out with more beautiful doilies. 


For my card base, I used the scallop circle from Bunch of Fun Circle dies. I then used Stitched Doily die to layer on the scallop. Next, I layered three sizes of the new Bunch of Stitched Doily dies as well. 

I stamped on the sentiment from the Shine Bright stamp set using Versamark ink along with Recollection's gold embossing powder. 

I then cut out three flowers using the Jr. Rolled Flower dies. After I put them together, I added gold Stickles to the end of the petals. I adhered them onto the card and accented them with a couple of leaves cut out using the Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves dies.

I finished the card by adding a few gold sequins from my stash.

My Creative Time: What A Treat Wednesday

Hi, today is What a Treat Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog and I have a simple Father's day gift bag to share. 


I first cut out two white card stock gift bag pieces using the new Chalkboard Birthday stamp set die. I then used the little three little mustache stamps from the Here's Lookin' At You stamp set to create a custom background on the gift bag.

I cut out a gift card holder in white card stock using the Stiched Gift Card Pocket die and stamped on the same background to match the bag. I then adhered it to one side of the bag and then glued the entire bag together. Love that the pocket fits perfectly onto the bag.


I stamped the little "Cool Dad" from the Fun Tickets stamp set onto the Stitched Fun Ticket die cuts. I ran black ribbon through the gift bag for handles and then tied the ticket onto the ribbon with black twine.

I stamped on the "Happy Father's Day" also from the Here's Lookin' At You stamp set onto a Fun Stitched Tag label die. I accented it with silver sequins from my stash. 

I added the gift card along with some white tissue paper. 


Here is what the bag looks like with the custom mustache background stamping.
