My Creative Time ~ "3D Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "3D Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we create anything besides a card or layout.


I know that Halloween is tomorrow, but it's never too early to start thinking about decorating the Thanksgiving Day table.  Hee Hee!  The first time I saw Emma's new bow dies, I just knew I wanted to decorate the napkins on the dinner table!!!


I used the MCT ~ Medium Stitched Scalloped Bow Die.  The pretty fall patterned papers are from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Pumpkin Patch Stack and the solid color cardstock is from Paper Trey Ink.  In the center I used the star burst die and the small circle die from the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit.  On the circle, I used the brand new MCT ~ Postcard Add-Ons for the sentiment and the little leaves.  I tied the napkin with some pretty green ~ hemp twine.  And then I added the tag using the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings and the brand new MCT ~ Teeny Tag Holidays.  The inks are brand new from Ranger called Orange Blossom and Potting Soil...perfect for fall!!!

Well, that's it for me today.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I will see you all again soon.

Now technically this is a Facebook Fan Page Hop...which means that you will be hopping through Facebook. But for those of you who wanted more info, I have all the details on my projects below.  Before we get to that however, I want to make sure that you all know about the fun prizes!!!  There will be a $25 Gift Certificate from Peachy Keen Stamps, a $25 Gift Card from KaDoodle Bug Designs and a $25 Gift Card from Too Cute By Jessica.  All you have to do is like each Facebook Fan Page & and leave a comment on each post along the way.  To start at the beginning of the Hop go HERE.  Have fun!!!


EEK!!!  Aren't they cute?!?!  Peachy Keen Stamps, KaDoodle Bug Designs and Too Cute By Jessica make such a GREAT combo I couldn't stop with just 1 card, so I made 2 cards!!   :)


For this first 6x6 card, all of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink and all of the fun patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Haunted Manor collection.  All of the cuts on this card are from the KaDoodle Bug Designs ~ Moonlight Monsters file.  I cut them all with my Cameo.


The faces for this sweet little couple are from the PKS ~ Piles of Smiles.  I added some cheeks with chalk and used a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll Pen for the eyes.


The scary little faces for the pumpkins are from the PKS ~ Make A Monster Face Assortment.  And the "Happy Halloween" sentiment is from the PKS ~ Halloween Minis.  I used pop dots everywhere for dimension.  And of course, I just had to add some googlie eyes to the silly little bats!  Hee!


For this second 6x6 card, all of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink and all of the fun patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Haunted Manor Collection.  This cute little couple is cut with my Cameo using the Too Cute By Jessica ~ Zombies file.


The face for this scary looking zombie is from the PKS ~ Make A Monster Face Assortment.  The clouds are cut with the MCT ~ Fly Away With Me Dies.  And the "Have a Peachy Keen Halloween" sentiment is from the PKS ~ Nikkity Knack Cat Gang.  The little picket fence is cut with a Martha Stewart ~ Border Punch.


The silly face for this sassy little zombie is from the PKS ~ Monster Mash Face Assortment.  The tombstones are cut with the tag dies in the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit.  To decorate the tombstones, I used the PKS ~ Dress Me Ghost and the PKS ~ Nikkity Knack Cat Gang.  I used pop dots on pretty much everything, as well as lots of chalk to messy things up a bit.


Well, I hope you love my fun Halloween cards for today.  Don't forget that this is a Facebook Fan Page Hop.  To get started at the beginning go HERE.  Have a great day everyone!  And HAPPY HOPPING!!!

Another Halloween treat...full of what else...more candy!!!  Hee!


I think this one might be my favorite so far, because I'm soooo loving that bow die!!!  I cut this using my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  This is actually a 3D card, but I stapled a bag full of candy corn inside to make it a little treat holder.  The black cardstock is Bazzill and all of the patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Haunted Manor collection.


I cut the beautiful bow using the MCT ~ Small Stitched Scalloped Bow Die.  In the center, I added a little circle using the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit.  And the "for you..." and the bat are from the MCT ~ Holiday Tickets.  


Here's a side view so that you can see the dimension.  So much fun don't you think?  Of course, I had to add more googlie eyes...I just love them!!!  ;)

So for my projects this week, I decided to focus on some quick and easy Halloween Treat ideas.  These would be great for your kids, co-workers, neighbors...anyone actually.    ;)

How many of you remember making silly ghost lollipops when you were little?  If I remember right, I think we used Kleenex and a black marker...lol.  So I decided to make mine a little more crafty...  


Okay, these are seriously the easiest little treats to make ever!!!  I covered each lollipop with White ~ Tulle. Slapped on some googlie eyes.  Added the tags.  And voila...done!  You could mass produce these in a heartbeat!!!  


To make the tags, I used the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings.  The black and white cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  The inks are Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink, Monarch Orange ~ Ranger Archival Ink and Grape Juice ~ Hero Arts Shadow Ink.  I tied them on with some colorful hemp twine.  And of course, who doesn't love a good old pair of googlie eyes?!?

Here are close up shots of each:



Hee!  They are so cute!  And oh so easy to make!!!  Hope you liked them!

My Creative Time ~ October Stamp Release : BLOG HOP

Hello everyone!  What a fabulous week!  I say this every month, but Emma's products get more AMAZING with every release!!!  Well it's time for my favorite part...the My Creative Time ~ October Release : BLOG HOP!! You should have arrived here from the super talented Amy's blog.  If not, make sure you head back to My Creative Time so that you can start at the beginning with Emma.  You definitely don't want to miss a thing.

For my projects today, I am featuring the brand new MCT ~ Scallop Stitched Envelope Die.  And since it's October, I decided to focus on Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


Unfortunately, I think all of us know someone who has suffered from breast cancer.  So I decided to make a set of supportive note cards that you could either give to your loved one as they battle through their illness, or possibly to even donate the whole set to a charity.

Each one is made with the brand new MCT ~ Scallop Stitched Envelope Die.  And all of these super terrific patterned papers are from the Me & My Big Ideas ~ Breast Cancer : Fight Like A Girl Stack.

Here are some close ups of each one:


To decorate the envelope, I used the MCT ~ Medium Stitched Scalloped Bow Die, the MCT: Scalloped Stitched Rosette Die, the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit, and the MCT ~ Postcard Add-Ons.  I also used pop dots for dimension.  For the inside note, I used the MCT ~ Stitched 3x4 Journal Die and the MCT ~ Race For A Cure. The inks are Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink and Bubblegum ~ Hero Arts Shadow Ink.


To decorate this card, I used the MCT ~ Medium Stitched Scalloped Bow Die, the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit and the MCT ~ Postcard Add-Ons.  I used pop dots for dimension.  And I embossed the heart with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and white ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder.  For the note card, I used the MCT ~ Stitched 3x4 Journal Die and the MCT ~ Race For A Cure.


To decorate this one, I used the MCT ~ Scalloped Stitched Rosette Dies, the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit and the MCT ~ Postcard Add-Ons.  For the note card, I used the MCT ~ 3x4 Stitched Journal Card and the MCT ~ Race For A Cure.


To decorate this one, I used the both the MCT ~ Medium Stitched Scalloped Bow Die & the MCT ~ Small Stitched Scalloped Bow Die; as well as the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit and the MCT ~ Postcard Add-Ons.  For the note card, I used the MCT ~ Stitched 3x4 Journal Die and the MCT ~ Race For A Cure.


And to decorate this last one, I used the MCT ~ Medium Stitched Scalloped Bow Die, the MCT ~ Scalloped Stitched Rosette Die and the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit.  For the note card, once again I used the MCT ~ 3x4 Stitched Journal Die and the MCT ~ Race For A Cure.


Well, I hope you loved all of my Breast Cancer Awareness Note Cards.  I just love how they all turned out!
