MCT Made With Love


Hello Sweet Stamping Friends!

Welcome to Day #1 of Sneak Peeks for the 83rd Edition New Release from My Creative Time!!


Today we are showcasing the NEW 
Made With Love

I love this new stamp and die set!!!
My sister creates a ton of wooden signs with sayings on that she gives as gifts, so I thought it would be fun to use the new set to create some fun tags for her to put on them!

I love the tag in this new set!  So cute!!  

The 'Handcrafted' and 'Just For you!' are two different sentiments in the set!!

This set is full of a bunch of different sentiment combinations!!

There are a few images in the stamp set as well!!  I didn't use any for these tags, but I did die cut the cute stitched heart from the dies in the set!!

Sweet Summer


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a fun layout to share with you using dies from Frantic Stamper!!

It's so hard to believe summer is pretty much over with!  Fall is definitely in the air around here!  So as I begin to dream about next Spring and Summer I thought I'd share this fun layout with you that I created a few months ago that I hadn't posted yet:
 I added some banners to the upper left corner of the layout, which are part of the Stitched Fishtail Banners (09636) die set!  I added a tiny popsicle to the one banner, which is part of the Popsicles (09938) die set!

I love the Large Popsicles (10436)!!  The are the perfect addition to this layout, in my opinion!!
The 'yummy' sentiment is from the Sweet, Yummy, Delish (10445) die se!

The 'You're the sweetest!' stamped sentiment is from the Cupcake Sentiments (CL-102) stamp set!
The die cut arrow is part of the Elementals #17 (10094) die set, which I used to point to my main title!

The elegant 'Sweet' sentiment is from the Sweet, Yummy, Delish (10445) die set!

And the die cut 'SUMMER' letters are from the awesome Brooklyn Alphabet (10415) die set!

I really like how this layout turned out!!

Be sure to check out all of Frantic Stamper's fun dies!!

Have a lovely day!

--------------------

First up I am featuring the cute new Silly Trash Monsters stamp set and coordinating die set!!

 I love these cute little monsters!  I colored two of the monsters to add to this card.  One I placed in the new Trash Can die cut!  The other I thought it would be fun to place upside down in the open area of the Circle Panel Die!!  

I thought the die cut circle panel was a great fit for these cute monsters!!

I had so much fun with this stamp set!!  I absolutely love Halloween!!  

I love the sweet trick or treaters in this set!  I colored all of them up and only one didn't make it to my card due to space!
I used the new  Wonky Door Die for the fun door that can be opened!!  I used the Halloween Words Die Set to die cut the '31' to act as the house number!!  Clever I thought!!

I used a gumdrop for a door knob!  The 'Have a spook-tacular Halloween' is from the new Trick or Treat stamp set!  And the die cut bat and spider web accents are from the Happy Haunting Die Set!

Behind the door I placed one of the trick or treaters with the 'Boo' sentiment, which is part of the Ghoul-tastic Halloween stamp set!

Happy Birthday Shaker


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a fun card to share with you using dies from Frantic Stamper!!

I absolutely LOVE the Optic Circle (10486)!!

I used it to die cut the circle from a white piece of cardstock, which I placed sticky tape behind.  I kept the optic circle in place and just removed all the negative pieces.  I then placed a piece of acetate behind, to create my shaker window.  So fun!!
I die cut a banner from the Stitched Double Fishtail Banners (09735) die set, stamped the 'birthday' sentiment near the bottom right from the Many Happy Birthdays (CL-072) stamp set!  I then die cut the Happy Line (10488) to add to the banner to create my sentiment and added the banner to my cardbase with pop dots to give some dimension!

I just love how it turned out!!

Made in Minutes with MCT


Hello Sweet Stamping Friends!


I'm joining in the post today on the My Creative Time Blog!

Today's theme is...

Made In Minutes

Not only do I absolutely LOVE the stamps from MCT, but I am completely in LOVE with all the super fun dies Miss Emma releases!!

The adorable Witch Hat Topper Die is so much fun to use!  You can create some super fun packages super quick!!

So I grabbed it for my post today, to create this fun witches hat topper:
I decided to create the hat with a fun piece of pattern paper!  Last time I created a solid colored hat, so thought it would be fun to use some striped paper this time.

I was going to add a sentiment to the package, but thought I would leave it as is!  I really like how it turned out!!

YUMMY!!

Thanks

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I'm on the Dare 2B Artzy Blog today!!

I'm so excited to share this card with you!!  Not only is it a fun fold card, but it also features some of the amazing new products from D2BA, that I am in love with!!

So here is my instructions for a fun Tower Fold Card!!

I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock 8"x8"! This will be the main card base.  


I then scored opposite sides at 2".


Then along both those score lines I used a pencil and ruler to mark at 1", 2 1/4", 3 1/4", 4 3/4", 5 3/4" and 7". 


I then used my ruler to line up each of those marks and used a cutting knife to cut from score mark to score mark.

It should look like this:

Now you're going to score at 4" from the score line on just the 1" pieces...(4 scores total, I made them in red to show)

Then on the 1 1/4" (2 total) and 1 1/2" (1 total) pieces you are going to score 1" from both score lines we create(6 scores total):

This is how it should look...
How exciting!

Now time to decorate!!

Here is my finished card:
I LOVE how it turned out!!

I used the lovely Fall Harvest Collection Paper Pack for my pattern paper!!

Side view:
I used the new Foxy Greetings stamp set for the adorable fox and squirrel!  As well as the coordinating Foxy Greetings Die Set to cut the animals out after coloring them with my Copics!

I just love this fold, something different and so fun!


The cute little bird is also from the Foxy Greetings stamp set and die cut with the coordinating die set!  I thought it was a perfect addition to the die cut sentiment. 
  I used the Thanks Layer Die for my sentiment.  I love the layered die words from D2BA!!

The die cut sentiment was placed on top of two layers, which are from the Nesting Oval Scalloped Frames!


*Don't mind my fingers!!*
This is what the card looks like folded up:
How fun!!

Have a beautiful day!

My Craft Room

Hi Stamping Friends!!

So I have had these images edited for awhile now, but just haven't had a chance to post them!

We moved into our new house a little over a year ago now.  My Art Room and 4 Season's Room were the two rooms I was most excited for during the building process!

So glad it is over!

So here is my new Art Room:
 When deciding on what I all really wanted, my dream was to always have french doors into my art room!  I am so happy to get them!  I love the entrance to my space!!

I was also VERY excited to have some nice large windows in my art room!!  I love the natural light and the scenery out!!
I knew I also really wanted cabinets for organization!!   With moving I honestly can't believe how much stuff I had!!

At the end of my main work table, my husband created a shelf for me as you can never have enough storage!  As of now it hold all my containers with rhinestones and enamel dots, which I have in containers by color.  I also place my copic container on the shelf when it's not up in my sunroom!

Under the windows, my husband created a ledge for me, so I have pictures, handmade cards and some wooden stamps on display!

To the left, I have my cutting station, along with some of my paper!  I have some of my 6x6 paper pads on the counter for easy access.  There is more plain cardstock and 6x6 pads behind the middle doors.  My ribbon is in the left top and middle drawers, along with buttons.  My twine is on the counter.  One drawer holds my distress inks for easy access.  One drawer is random embellishments and then the last one on the right is all my pretty glitter and embossing powder!  The two bottom right drawers have scrapbook supplies.
In the right cubes I store my lovely Dare 2B Artzy products!!

I have my work station in the center under a window that faces the back of our land to a lovely pond and all kids of beautiful flowers!!
Another thing I knew I really wanted was a lovely chandelier above my work table!!

The middle storage shelf is used to store my handmade cards on the top shelf.

The next shelf down is all my lovely Your Next Stamp products!!  And the bottom two shelves are for my kids scrapbooks.

My other section of cabinets store all my dies, stamps, extra adhesive and inks!!
The far left, is where I take all my photos of my projects.  The main counter area is my die cutting station.  The storage drawers on the right house my lovely Frantic Stamper dies and my products from My Creative Time!  As well as all my lovely sequins!!  And other random dies!

My desk area and closet space:
 I decided I didn't want a door for the closet, so I have my husband make the opening large, to make it kind of like a gallery for paintings by my kids.  The storage cubes hold random things as well as the shelves on each side of the gallery.

 My daughter needed her own space, so we were sure to have an area for her:
All the lovely art work hanging on the walls was done by myself while I was in Art School or by my kiddos!

This place is definitely one of my HAPPY PLACES!!

It's just full of so much fun and color!!

I hope you've enjoyed a view of my work space!

Have a lovely day!!
