Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Celebrate Christmas BLOG HOP

***This is my 2nd post of the day.  For the My Creative Time ~ Black Friday Hop, please click HERE.***

Hello everyone!  And welcome to the 2-Day Celebrate Christmas Blog Hop with Peachy Keen Stamps.  Boy are you in for a treat...this hop includes both current and former Design Team Members and they have created some FABULOUS projects for you all.  You should have arrived here from the super talented Kristi's blog. If not, then make sure you hop on over there so that you can start from the beginning.  You don't want to miss a thing!


For my project today, I decided to make some fun cookie/treat holders.  I cut them with my Cameo and a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store.  But the main attraction is my cutie patootie little snow couple...aren't they just adorable?!?!


The solid green and solid red cardstock are from Bazzill.  All of the other pretty patterned papers are from the We R Memory Keepers ~ North Pole collection.


This sweet little lady is from the PKS ~ Snow Girl.  I paper pieced her outfit, added some chalk for her cheeks and used Copic ~  Sketch Markers for the nose and mouth.  And she's on pop dots for dimension.  At the top, the label is cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies. The "Merry Christmas!" sentiment is from the PKS ~ Christmas Greeting Words.  The ink is Vermillion ~ Ranger Archival Ink.


This handsome little fella is from the PKS ~ Snow Boy with Envelope.  I paper pieced his outfit as well, added chalk for the cheeks and used Copic ~ Sketch Markers for his nose and mouth.  He is also on pop dots for dimension.  At the top, the label is cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  The "Happy Holidays!" sentiment is from the PKS ~ Christmas Greeting Words.    And the ink is Cottage Ivy ~ Memento Ink.


Here are a couple of side views so that you can see the fun patterned papers.  :)   I also tied them off at the top with some beautiful Christmas ribbon from my stash.

Peachy Keen Stamps ~ "Happy Turkey Day!"

Hello everyone!  It's my day to post over at the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog.  Are you all ready for some good food this week???  I know I am!!!  So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I made a little decor for the dinner tables.  


Hee Hee!  Don't they just make you smile?  These are little 4x4 cards that I made to add to the Thanksgiving food tables.  The patterned paper is from the Recollections ~ Simply Autumn collection.  The turkeys are from the PKS ~ October 2012 : Kit of the Month.  


I stamped the turkeys onto Paper Trey Ink ~ kraft cardstock and then cut them out.  For something a little different, I used folded over flowers for their little tail feathers instead of the stamped feathers.  Hee!  Isn't that fun? 


I also paper pieced other elements like the scarf, the fork, the baster and the turkey's jiggly thingy.  The label is cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies. The "Happy Turkey Day!" sentiment is also from the PKS ~ October 2012 : Kit of the Month


Simple and cute and pretty easy to make. I hope you like them. Have a great day everyone! And HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

My Creative Time ~ 28th Stamp & Die Release : BLOG HOP

Hello everyone!  Yay...it's time for the My Creative Time ~ 28th Stamp & Die Release : BLOG HOP!!!  You should have arrived here from the super talented Amy's blog.  If not, then make sure you head on over to My Creative Time so that you can start at the beginning with Emma.  You don't want to miss a thing!  :)

For my projects today, I am featuring the brand new MCT ~ Circle Tab Sentiments.  


For my first card, I went with the CAS look.  The strips in the upper left corner are cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  All of those papers are from the Bo Bunny ~ Head Over Heels collection.  All 3 images in the bottom right are from the brand new MCT ~ Circle Tab Sentiments.  I stamped them onto white cardstock and then punched them out with a circle punch.  The inks are Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink & Vermillion ~ Ranger Archival Ink.  


For a bit of a different look, I did something a little more fun.  How about a gift card???  All of the super cute papers for this card are from the Echo Park ~ Bundle of Joy collection.  To hold the gift card, I cut out two pieces using the MCT ~ 3x4 Stitched Journal Die.  I adhered those together on three sides, leaving the right side open to slide in the gift card. The little baby stroller is from the MCT ~ Classy Girl Accessories.   The sentiments are from the brand new MCT ~ Fun Variety on the Inside & Out.  The arrow stamp is from the MCT ~ Circle Tab Sentiments.  The ink is Coffee ~ Ranger Archival Ink.  To assist with sliding the gift card in and out, I attached the MCT ~ Stitched Circle Tab.


I hope you liked the two different looks today.  This release is just fun fun fun!

I used the same ornaments on this card.  The pretty papers for this one are from the Bo Bunny ~ Silver & Gold collection.  And the pretty gold sparkly paper is from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Glitzy Glitter Stack.  The "Merry Christmas!" sentiment is also from the brand new MCT ~ Fun Variety on the Inside & Out.  The ink is Vermillion ~ Ranger Archival Ink.

My Creative Time ~ "Totally Treats Tuesday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for "Totally Treats Tuesday" with My Creative Time.  I don't know about you, but I can't believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  Where has this year gone?!?  Anyway, for my treats today, I thought I would make some chocolates to add each place setting at the Thanksgiving dinner table:


As you might notice, I did them up a little different this time.  These are the little Hershey Nuggets that would normally go in the MCT ~ Treat Box Slider.  But this time, instead of putting them in the box, I just tied them up with some hemp twine.  Aren't they fun?


To wrap each one, I used the scalloped die in the MCT ~ Treat Box Slider set.  All of the fun patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Happy Harvest collection


I cut all of the tags using the tag dies in the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings.  The "Happy Thanksgiving!", "Treats just for you.", and the "For my Turkey!" sentiments are from the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Holidays.  The "Thankful for you" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Piles of Smiles.  The ink is Coffee ~ Ranger Archival Ink.


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 for the latest MCT ~ November Release!!!!

Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge #13-46 : "Anything Goes"

Hello everyone!  It's time for the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge # 13-46 : "Anything Goes".  The guidelines for this challenge:  Create a project using Peachy Keen Stamps...anything goes!


I made this card for a sweet bloggy friend that's going through a rough time.  I think it can sometimes be hard to make "Sympathy" or "Thinking of You" cards.  It's always good to have one on hand for when you need one.

This is a cute 5x5 card.  All of the patterned papers are from the We R Memory Keepers ~ Harvest collection. The scalloped square shape in the center is cut with a Spellbinders Die.


This cutie patootie little bear is from the PKS ~ Thinking of You Bear.  I colored her with Copic ~ Sketch Markers. I paper pieced the heart.  I added a sweet little bow with hemp twine, and put a sequin and little pearl in the center.  I put the whole piece on pop dots for dimension.

That's it...super simple.  Make sure you head on over to Peachy Keen Stamps to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  And I can't wait to see what you all create...so get your craft on!!!  Have a great day everyone!  I will see you all again soon.

My Creative Time ~ "3D Wednesday"

***  This is my 2nd post of the day.  For the Peachy Keen Stamps & Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons ~ Thankful Blog Hop - please scroll down to the next post.  ***


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 make anything besides a card or a layout.


Mmmmmm!  Doesn't it look good enough to eat?  Hee Hee!  I cut this fabulous piece of pie with my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  All of the papers are from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Autumn Melody Stacks.


I made the tags with the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings.  And the "Happy Thanksgiving!" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Holidays.  The ink is Coffee ~ Ranger Archival Ink.  I attached the tag with some fun hemp twine and added a little flower embellie in the center.


So, of course you can't have pumpkin pie without whipped cream!!!  So to make that, I used the MCT ~ Scalloped Stitched Rosette Die and the MCT ~ Rolled Flower Die.  So pretty!!  In the center is a little Recollections ~ pearl.


The leaves are from the MCT ~ Piles of Smiles.  They would be so pretty to just sprinkle all over the Thanksgiving dinner table don't you think?  Well, this fun little treat was super easy to make and would be fun to fill with treats for your holiday guests!!!  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.
