My Creative Time: Tag it Tuesday

Hi, it's Tag It Tuesday over on the My Creative Time blog. Today, we have a photo/color challenge for our tags.
 
 
So here is what I came up based on the colors and photo.
 
 
 
I first started with MCT: Tag Die Layers and Tag dies for my base.
 
I then created the grass with MCT: Stitched Grass and part of a green tag.
 
The little watering can was cut from an svg from SVG Cutting Files. I added faux stitching to it with a white gel pen. I also wanted to create the look of the one watering can in the picture that had painted flowers on it. So I added a little flower from MCT: Way To Go Stamp Set.


 
I added the cute little flowers to the watering can from MCT: Pretty Stitched Flowers and Leaves. I added faces to each one from Peachy Keen Stamps: Kawaii Face Assortments. I then covered each one with glossy accents. I added little water droplets coming down from the watering can with my glossy accents.
 
For the sentiment I first cut out a speech bubble from MCT: Speech Bubble Sentiments Stamp Set. I stamped on the sentiment from MCT: What's Growing On? Stamp Set.
 
I added the cute little butterfly from MCT: Pretty Butterflies and Dragonfly Dies. I added some bling to jazz the butterfly up a bit.
 
I added ribbon along with twine at the top of the tag. Then I added some yellow twine to the watering can.
 
For more amazing inspiration please head on over to Miss Emma's blog!!
 
Have a wonderful day!! Happy Creating!!

For the camera, I combined the "new" Camera layer die with MCT: Stitched Camera Die, and the circles/heart from MCT: Picture Perfect. I added glossy accents to the lens part. 
 
I added the "oh snap" and "picture perfect" to the stitched "capture" frame from MCT: Picture Perfect.
 
 
I added the small star from MCT: 3 star Stitched Dies to the corner of the frame.
 
The little rik rak line is from the new MCT: Tag Die Layers.
 
I added the little smile and the heart also come from MCT: Picture Perfect.
 
I finished the by added the green arrow from MCT: Stitched "Capture" Frame and Arrow.

Peachy Keen Stamps: Trendspotting

If you are looking for the My Creative Time Day #4 Sneak Peeks please click here.

Hi, I am sharing a trendsetting project.
 
I am a bit late to the Smash Book trend but it's never too late to start. So I created my very first entry into my book. It's of my son's first day of 2nd grade.
 
 
I cut the cute little boy from Too Cute By Jessica's: School is Cool. For his face, I used PKS: 1410 Christmas In July Face Assortment. Before I added the face, I used a baby wipe to take the ink off of the eyelashes on the stamp to create more of a boy look. I colored the eyes in with a Copic  marker and chalk his cheeks. After I had pieced him all together I added white gel pen accents to his hat, hair, body, and backpack.
                       
 
 
 
 I added the cute little face to the apple using PKS-1403 Popcorn People. The apple and pencil were cut from My Creative Time's Love to Learn Dies. The title was cut from My Creative Time's Uppercase Fun dies, Lowercase Fun dies, and Number Fun dies plus add ons. I added white gel pen accents to every one as well.
 
I am so glad that I took the plunge and created my first Smash book page. A simple and fun way to scrap those special memories!
 
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful crafty day!
 
P.S.
 
We would love for you to join us in our August PKS Linky Party as well as our PKS 14-Challenge.
 
 
 
 

My Creative Time: Sneak Peeks Day #4

Today, is day #4 of Sneak Peeks for the My Creative Time's 35th Release! Today, we are sneaking the "Tag Die Layers" which coordinates with the MCT: Tag Dies.
 
 
 
I am so glad that Miss Emma created these!! I LOVE THEM!! Now I don't have to cut the shadowing layer by hand!!
 
They add just the right element to your tags.
 
So here is what I created using these new amazing dies!!
 
 
 
For my first tag, I decided to use the super cute puppy dog from MCT: Loyal Friends Stamp Set. The little fence, dog bone, and the paw print all come from this set as well. The little heart he is holding in his mouth is from MCT: Stitched Heart Layering Dies.
 
The sentiment is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink from MCT: Live Love Bark.
 
 
 
I layered the grass with MCT: Stitched Grass die and added the clouds from MCT: Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies.
 
I used MCT: Stitched Round Tab to cover the tag hole and ran Recollection's Paw Print ribbon through it. Then I tied it off with twine and added the paw print to it.
 
 

 
For this tag, I used the pretty bee from MCT: Bee Happy Stamp Set and MCT: Stitched Bees and Beehive dies. I colored the bee with Copic markers and used Stickles on his wings.
 
For his bee trail, I used a stamp from MCT: Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy Stamp Set.
 
I created the pretty flower using MCT: Flower Petal Dies and MCT: Pretty Stitched Flowers and Leaves. I added Stickles to the center.
 
 
 
I stamped on the sentiment also from MCT: Bee Happy Stamp Set onto the smallest banner from MCT: Trio Stitched Banner Dies.
 
 I added the tab cover to the hole from MCT: Stitched Round Tab and ran Recollection's Jute Ribbon through it. 
 
To finish the tag, I added a small heart from MCT: Stitched Sweethearts and XOXO's dies to the ribbon as well as enamel dots to the base tag.

My Creative Time: Sneak Peeks Day #2

Today, is day #2 of Sneak Peeks for the My Creative Time's 35th Release! I just love these paint splatter stamps to the moon and back!!
 
We are sneaking "Family is Everything Stamps and Dies".
 
Here is what I've created using these amazing new products!
 
 
 
I first started out by cutting out a white card stock rectangle using the MCT: Stitched 4x6 Journal Die.  I used the paint splatter stamps along with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, and Mustard Seed. These stamps made it so easy to create a cool background.
 
 
After I had the background matted and adhered to the card base. I added a strip of black cardstock to the front. I then cut out the word "love" using the new die.
 
Next, I used Versamark ink to stamp " Do all things with" with Recollections Snow Embossing Powder.
 
Then to finish the card, I cut out two pink little hearts using MCT: Sweethearts and XOXO's dies.
 

***Sneak Peek giveaway!***
We will be giving away the sets we are showcasing each day to ONE lucky winner! For example, the set we are showcasing on Wednesday, Emma will announce the winner of that on Thursday & the sets we are showcasing on Thursday, Emma will announce that winner on Friday in her video!

My Creative Challenge: Picture/Color Challenge

 
Hi, today over on the My Creative Time blog is a photo/color challenge based on the picture below. You can create a project using inspiration from the photo, the colors, or both!
 
 
 
Here is what I came up with-

 

 
When I saw the picture I automatically thought of creating a little orange using the MCT: Bunch of Fun Circles and MCT: Pretty Stitched Flowers and Leaves. I added a cute Peachy Keen face to it and chalked her cheeks. Then I finished her look by adding a little twine bow.
 
For the tag base, I used MCT: Just Tags. I added white gel pen stitching to the bottom layer of the tag.
 
 
 
I framed the little orange with MCT: Stitched Mini Frame I then added the part of the sentiment "You're sweet as honey" from MCT: Bee Happy Stamp Set.
 
I then adhered the little tag to a bag the candied orange slices.
 
I finished the project by adding a cute little MCT: Fun Sized Scallop Stitched Bow to the bag and added a faux pearl.
 
For more amazing inspiration please head on over to Miss Emma's blog!!
 
Have a wonderful day!! Happy Creating!!
