MCT Whatever Wednesday ~ Happy Spring!




Hello peeps, it's Whatever Wednesday at My Creative Time!  
That means that we can do whatever we want, so I cam up with this mini spring banner.


To create this banner, I first glued burlap to paper using basic glue stick.  After it had dried I ran it through the Big Shot and the Tag Die with a shim.  The hole for the tag didn't cut all the way through, which worked out perfectly, since I wanted the holes on the edges for the hemp to be strung through.


I stamped the sentiment on canvas, the frayed the edges a bit.  The bunnies and flowers are cut from felt and the tails are from pom pom trim.  I think the bunnies turned out so cute!

banner-for-fb_page-midmonthrelease_rvsd
Good morning!

We have some super cute projects to share with you that feature additional stamps being released TODAY that go perfectly with our  Faceless Chickens and Chickie Faces that were released earlier this month.  The response to these has been outstanding, so you know this just HAD to happen!
You should have arrived here from Peachy Keen's Blog, if you’re hopping along in the set order, but if you just happened stop by to see me, then you can go back to the beginning at The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and start from there so you don’t miss one wonderful project.
Grab your favorite beverage and relax with us for a few minutes as you take in the talents of our team, and be sure to leave comments (and a way to contact you, if you win) along the way for a chance to win all four sets in this release!  That’s right!!  One lucky person who hops and comments with us today will win all four of these sweet stamp sets!  Thanks for joining us today and ENJOY THE HOP!!!

I have two birthdays this week, one of these is for a friend and the other is for my niece.
Isn't this the cutest chicken!!!  I love him with the sunglasses, but I couldn't just stop there...I had to put his head on a wobble!


The red and white paper is actually another new stamp!  If you look closely you can that my stamping was a bit blotchy, this is only because my stamp needs to be re inked.  I thought about re stamping it, however I ended up liking that it wasn't perfect. :)


Oh and more sentiments to go with the chicks!  Tons of fun, quirky, and corny sayings!  You're going to love them!  I stamped the chick twice and cut out one of the heads and added the wobble behind just the cut head.


Since the chickens are so fun to work with I had to make another one!

MCT Tag It Tuesday ~ Sweet Friend!



Happy Tuesday my crafty friends!
  Before I get started with my project, I wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU for taking time out of your life to stop by my little spot.  This blog has given my lots of joy of creating projects and making new friends, which really means YOU have given me lot of joy!  So again thank you!!!! :)

 Today is Tag It Tuesday over at My Creative Time!  Tags are so fun since you can add them to a card base, hang them on a bag, or even leave them by themselves in an envelope.  For this tag, I think I'll add it to a card base...we'll see :)


If you look closely, you can see I add white embossing powder on the background with Spring Chicken background flowers stamp.  On both butterflies I used clear embossing powder, heating, dipping into the powder, repeating a few times.  This created a thick almost epoxy feel to them.


Did you realize that I created a tag within a tag?  :)

Today project is a envelope card, basically a flat card with a glassine bag as an envelope.  This could be left in a lunch, someone's car, or in a gift bag with the gift.  You could even add the whole thing to a larger envelope to be mailed.  :)

MCT Thrifty Thursday ~ HB2U!


Hi crafty friends, today is Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time!  
That means we on the design team are suppose to use scraps, and/or reuse something to create a new project.  The only thing that's suppose to be new is the base (card or layout).
I always keep extra die cuts in this decorated mason jar that I got from a friend (Katie).  I popped the top out of the ring so it always open and just toss any die cuts that I don't end up using for a project.  Sometimes it's something I stamped that I may not be happy with the outcome...I still keep it.  Why?  Cause you never know, you just might use it.  :)
Well, this is what I pulled out of the jar...plus some scraps and my card base.

The lined paper was one of those items that I had stamped a few weeks ago but it didn't stamp evenly, so I threw it in the jar.  However for this project it didn't matter if it wasn't perfect, it added to the look.  :)
