My Creative Time "Stamp of the Month" ~ I'm Lucky!

Hi everyone!  Do you ever have one of those days when you have so much to do and if one thing goes hay wire the whole day is out of sinc?  Of course you do, I know I'm not the only one!  As much as think I am!  lol!  Well that's how my day was yesterday!  However with all my mishaps, I was still able to get a card done for My Creative Time's Stamp of the Month!  Priorities, right!  :)

For this month's "Stamp of the Month" Emma ask us to make a CARD using any stamp from her first 3 editions!  That means I was able to look through and choose a stamp from 12 different sets!  Oh my goodness the ideas were flying!!!  In honor of the next holiday, I decided to use "I Believe in Leprechauns" set.  I wanted this card to be for a friend for any time of the year though! 






recipe:
Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge
oval cut at 1.81 x 2.29 out of card base, green and white strip
oval frame cut at 1.81 x 2.29 center and 2.24 x 2.84 outer
Stamping Cricut Cartridge
clover cut at 1.70 x 1.94
paper: PTI kraft, scraps for the rest

Today I wanted to share a fun little bunny card with you! 


I used Glossy Accents on the eyes and eggs!  You can't tell but in person it adds so much!

recipe:
Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge
circle cut at 3.5 and 3.75
doily, scrap paper, ink, ribbon, twine, button, copic markers, glossy accents, white pen, chalk

My Creative Time's February Sneak Peek ~ Day 2!

Hello my paper love friends!  Happy Valentine's Day, sorry I don't have "heart" project!  I'm kind of done with hearts! lol!  Did you hear that My Creative Time's February is having sneak peeks this week?   Oh my goodness they are so CUTE!  They are a mix of images, sentiments and a layering die.  Oh and of course My Creative Time's signature "all around" circle stamp to fit the Scallop & Stitched Circle dies! 

For today's project I decided to go way out on a limb and make a bookmark!  You've probably realized that I didn't use my cricut yesterday...and I'm not using it again today!  Let's just keep this our little secret...I don't want him to get jealous!  hehehe  I haven't given him up, I just wanted to switch things up a bit!  :)


I know it's little hard to see, but it's really cute in person!

This is a layering die, I only used one of the dies.  I cut it 4 time then scored in the middle and used Zip Dry glue. 

I used the Teeny Tag layer die for the tag and added bead to the ends.

recipe:
twine, paper scraps, embossing powder, beads

Now for the best part!!!

Monday Blog Hop ~ I Love You Sew Much Tag!

***This is my second post of the day, so please scroll down! 
You won't be disappointed! ***

Happy Monday and welcome to EAD Design's Monday Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the always creative Lauren's blog!  If you just popped in to see me, then you'll want to head over to EAD's blog for the start!

For today's project I wanted to play with some glimmer mist!  Experimenting with new things can be fun, but it doesn't always turn out like you picture it in your head!  I'm happy with the end result, however I'm sure there has to be a less messy way to use it!  (so Katie if you're reading this, I don't think you'd like it!  hehehe)






recipe:
glimmer mist, shipping tag, ribbon, button, twine, safety pins, heart pin
