Hello everyone! And welcome to the super terrific "12 Days of Christmas" with My Creative Time! I'm so excited for this and I hope you are too! Many of you are probably already busy with decorating, shopping, wrapping and baking. But get ready, because we are hoping to inspire you with some great holiday project and gift ideas. Whatever your experience level, whatever your budget, whatever time you have available, I just know that you will find something that fits your needs. So sit back and enjoy as Emma and the MCT ~ Design Team bring you the "12 Days of Christmas".
I decided to start Day 1 with one of my favorite My Creative Time products ~ the Stitched Lollipop Holder Die. If you don't have this yet, it's a must-have item on your Christmas list!!! It makes treat giving so super quick and easy!!!
The patterned cardstock for the lollipop holders is from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Artic Wishes collection. The cardstock for the blue scalloped circles is from the Coredinations ~ Gemstones collection. You can't really tell in the picture, but it's kinda shiny and oh so pretty. The cardstock for the white circles and the purple banners are from Recollections.
For the top of the treat holder, I used the My Creative Time ~ Scalloped & Stitched Circle Dies. The cute little Snowlady is from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Christmas Tag Minis stamp set. I colored her in with Copic ~ Sketch Markers. The "Happy Holidays!" sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ From Our Family To Yours stamp set.
The cute little Snowman is also from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Christmas Tag Minis stamp set. And I used Copic ~ Sketch Markers to color him in too. How do you like my shading??? Trying to get a little better with it. ;) The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ Gift Card Sentiments stamp set. The banner tag is from the My Creative Time ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies. The bow at the top is made with The Twinery ~ Lilac Twine. The little flower gem is from my stash.
Here is a side view so that you can see how perfectly the See's Candies Lollipop fits in there! Also, you can see that I used some pop dots underneath the Snowman for some extra dimension.
Like I said, super quick and easy to reproduce . . . not to mention ca-ute! ;)
