MCT & Original Gourmet Lollipop Collaboration!

GOOD MORNING 
welcome to our collaboration with the 
FABULOUS “Original Gourmet Lollipop” company! 
We are ALL super excited to partner up with this company because they truly do have the BEST lollipops around! 
Many of you are familiar with our famous “Stitched Lollipop Holder Dies” which fit the famous OG lollipops PERFECTLY! 
Well, we just discovered the “mini” OG lollipops! 
We LOVED them so much that Emma designed a brand new “Mini Stitched Lollipop Die”. This new die fits the mini OG lollipops to PERFECTION! 

Join us as we showcase BOTH sizes of these dies so you can see the difference! 
Totally LOVE this new die...look at how adorable it is.....

Here is a closeup of my 1st project using the new Mini Stitched Lollipop Die
How adorable is that little pumpkin! I used the mini die from the All Around Holiday's set and added the cutie face from the You Make Life Sweet set. I added him then onto a small stitched circle die which fit perfectly into the center of the new scallop for the lollipop die.
Everything was then popped up onto the front of the lollipop die but after I threaded some ribbon through the front to hold the lollipop in place. A simple bow tied the whole project together along with my matching sentiment.

Scary, Scary......{MCT Manly Monday}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to 
Manly Monday!
I have a super cool Halloween card to share today using a stencil technique...take a look


Since this is a manly card, I went monochromatic adding just a hint of color with the orange nuvo crystal drops.
I used the spider web die and made a stencil, inking the image onto my card base. For those who are interested, I will be sharing a tutorial on Thursday using this technique :)
Next I stamped my sentiment onto a sentiment label die and popped it up onto the card front. 
Some black and orange nuvo crystal drops and a bat die cut completed my Halloween card!!

Believe in the Magic of Christmas....{MCT Inspire Me Wednesday}

Good Morning and welcome to another
Inspire Me Wednesday with My Creative Time!

My inspiration today came from  Pinterest.  
I found this cute Christmas card  HERE and used the inspiration to make my own version of a Christmas card using all MCT stamps and dies. 
Take a look...
So I am totally in LOVE with the new deer die cut!! I die cut him out with kraft cardstock and then added the grainy wood background onto him for some extra details. A shiny red nose and he was placed aside as I finished the rest of my card.
I used beautiful wintery themed paper from Carta Bella and the Bunch of Fun Circle dies for the focal point. 
For the sentiment~from Boughs of Holly, I stamped the "believe" onto a rectangular frame and then make my own layer for the back. I wanted it to pop alittle more against the white circle.
Finally the remaining sentiment was stamped onto a banner die and my card was ready to assemble.
Lots of popped up pieces gives the card some fun added dimension.

MCT 59th New Release Sneak Day 3

Good Morning and welcome to Day 3 of sneaks for the 
59th New Release from My Creative Time!!!
Are you LOVING what the DT has been sharing so far? Pretty FABULOUS right?!?!?

Today's new set is another AWESOME one and one that I know you guys are going to snatch up right away...
Baked with Love
and here is the cproject I made using one of the sentiments from this set.....
I just LOVE how this turned out!!!! 
To make my project, I used the Holiday Tags set for the base and layers of the tag. I also used the same set for the Santa. I did size it down a tad to fit onto my tag layer so that I could use the new sentiment from Baked with Love.
Some added NUVO crystal dots finished off my tag. I am obsessed with those BTW..LOL!!
Since these were cookies for Santa I had to package them extra special, using a clear box from Trendy Twine and adding a big decorative ribbon for my tag to attach to.

MCT 59th New Release Sneak Day 2

Good Morning and welcome to Day 2 of sneaks for the 
59th New Release from My Creative Time!!!
Today new set is another AWESOME one.....
Chalkboard Christmas
and here is the card I made using one of the sentiments from this set.....
To make my card, I started with a white card stock base and layered some designer paper on the bottom half of the card base.
Next I centered my sentiment using my MISTI and stamped it first masking the holly leaves to stamp the sentiment in black and then masking the sentiment to stamp the holly leaves in green. Some tiny red bling were added for the berries :)
Finally I wanted to add a little more to the card so I grabbed a piece of scrap kraft card stock and the ripped paper edges die.
