Valentine's treat container

Happy Friday my crafty friends and welcome to My Creative Time! 62nd Edition Release Blog Hop!!!  After an AWESOME inspiration week with the NEW MCT stamps and dies, today is reveal day!!! If you came from Liz’ Blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened to arrive here, you might want to start back at Emma’s blog, so that you don’t miss anything! 😉

Today I made a video with a closer look at the new release, you can watch it HERE.

 

After a variety of projects I’ve shared with you throughout the week I realized I hadn’t made any treat container, that’s why today’s project features a Valentine’s treat envelope showcasing the new “CHALKBOARD VALENTINES”.  It was super easy to make. I used a magnet closure which I explain in the video.  I hope you like it!!! 😀

Fringe Heart Tag using MCT "Heart Love Note Dies" Hello my crafty friends and welcome to MY Creative Time! final sneak peek day.  Today we’re showcasing the amazing and must have “HEART LOVE NOTE DIES”!!! 😉

Today I made a Fringe Heart Ornament Tag.  I was inspired by Maggie Holmes fringe tags from her “Bloom” collection.  I always wanted to make one.  I didn’t want it to be just a tag, I wanted to turn it into an ornament so I decorated the back.. It turned out pretty awesome!!! 😀Fringe Heart Tag using MCT "Heart Love Note Dies"

I die-cut several hearts using one of the heart shaped dies from the new “HEART LOVE NOTE DIES” and cut the fringes using a fine scissors.  I layered them and voila.. super easy!!!  I decorated the back using a scrap of ruffle that I’ve been using throughout this release and die-cut ‘Love’ from the same set.  To finish the tag ornament I sandwiched some twine and added gold sequins on both sides.  I totally love this project and I’m definitely going to make many more!!! 🙂

MCT – DECEMBER Sneak Peek Day #3 – Happy Love Day

Crate Paper "Hello, Love"  Hello crafty friends and welcome to MY Creative Time! sneak peek day #3. Today we’re showcasing  “CHALKBOARD VALENTINES” stamp set which also includes a frame die! 🙂

Today I made a fun layered card.  I used several MCT products.  I decided to keep using “Hello, Love” paper pad throughout this lovely release.  I die-cut several pieces: a picture frame (popped with fun foam), a banner and two stitched hearts. Products listed below.

I partially heat embossed one of the sentiments from the new “CHALKBOARD VALENTINES” and drew an outline with a TH Distress marker.  I sewed in the middle one of the stitched hearts in the middle and a ruffle which I later cut smaller to fit on the polaroid frame.  I fussy cut a slide frame from pattern paper and added sparkle glitter for extra shine.

To finish the card I added clear and gold sequins.
This card is pretty girly.  I think it’ll be perfect to give to a girlfriend.  😉

MCT – DECEMBER Sneak Peek Day #2 – Love Is In The Air Shaker Tag

mct-love-is-in-the-air-12-2016-1 Hello crafty friends and welcome to MY Creative Time! sneak peek day #2. Today we’re showcasing “LOVE IS IN THE AIR” which includes matching dies!!! 😀 

Today I made a shaker tag. I used several MCT dies.  I die-cut several clouds from “More Stitched Edges”  to make the background and die-cut the tag shape from “Tag Die Layes”.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the NEW “LOVE IS IN THE AIR”.  To make the shaker mechanism I used WRMK Fuse tool with a clear sleeve and I used the tag die as a template.  Finally I added sequins and tiny beads. 

To decorate the shaker card I stamped the lovely hot air heart shaped balloon from this new set twice, once on white CS and once on pattern paper,  fussy cut it and colored the edges to give it dimension. Later I die-cut its shape with the matching die and an extra piece in fun foam to make it pop.  Also, I die-cut two clouds from “Stitched Clouds” and “Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies”.

To finish the shaker card I added Wink of Stella to the hot air heart shaped ballon, washi tape and a glitter round tab.  I really love the way it turned out! 😉

MCT – DECEMBER Sneak Peek Day #1 – Pocket Tag

mct-mini-tag-dies-12-2016-2 Happy Monday crafty friends… Today we’re starting the week with fabulous sneak peeks at the 62nd Edition over at MY Creative Time!!!! For day #1 we’re showcasing our FREEBIE for this release the new “MINI TAG DIES 2”!!! Don’t forget that our freebie is for the FIRST 100 shoppers only. 😀 

For a long time I wanted to make a pocket tag and this new set was the perfect excuse to create one! 😉  I die-cut one of the dies from MCT “Tag Die Layers” and created the pocket to fit. For this project I used “Hello, Love” paper pad by Crate Paper.  Also, I used my mini sewing machine and stitched the sides to create the pocket.  I die-cut the new “MINI TAG DIES 2” twice.  I used one to decorate the pocket tag and the other was used as a tab to decorate the tag.  To decorate the pocket I used MCT “Friendships are Forever”.  I die-cut ‘friend’ onto gold mirror CS and used fun foam for dimension. I sewed a ruffle border and fussy cut a geometric heart. To finish the pocket tag I added pink ribbon. mct-mini-tag-dies-12-2016-1
I love the fact how one little die can add so much detail and personality to a project!!!  I hope you like the pocket tag as much as I do!!!

MCT – 48 Hour Flash Sale Blog Hop

manly-valentines-card-02-2016-1

Good morning and welcome to another “48 Hour Flash Sale Blog Hop!”  Today we have a special FLASH sale going on because we have 2 new items that are available NOW for sale HERE! Since we just celebrated our 5 year anniversary, Emma thought….. “Why should we end the party now……right?” 😀  If you came from Kim’s Blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened to arrive here, you might want to start back at Emma’s blog, so that you don’t miss anything!

Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner I decided to make two Valentine’s Day cards.  For the first card I’m showcasing the NEW “Mad for Plaid”.  This is an awesome stamp set.  You can customize your own plaid background with the colors and lines you want!!! 🙂

manly-valentines-card-02-2016-2

Since the background is the focal point I didn’t want to use many decorative elements.  I die-cut different pieces: a big heart from “Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies”, an envelope from “Mini Stitched Envelope Die” and to close it a tiny heart from “Carved Heart” and ‘happy’ from “Happy Everything”.  I heat embossed “Valentine’s day” onto vellum paper.  To finish the card I added gold thread and a thin border of glitter CS.

The second card is a watercolored card. Just like the first card I wanted the background to be the focal point.  I used the NEW “Stitched Hearts Background”. 🙂

I used Tim Holtz Distress ink pads to watercolor the hearts. For the sky I used Kuretake ZIG Clean Color markers.  I stamped a partial sentiment from “Puffy Hearts Just For You” and die-cut ‘love’ from “Love Die” in gold glitter CS.

Here is a closer look at the lovely stitches.  I also added Wink of Stella to some hearts… I think this die is to die for!!! 😉watercolor-valentines-card-02-2016-2

LA&C ~ Reto #2

¡Hola Chic@s!
Como bien sabes se aproxima el día de San Valentín, del Cariño, de la Amistad o como le quieras llamar. Y para empezar a inspirarte hoy en Latinas Arts & Crafts te traemos un nuevo Reto. El cual es fabuloso, perfecto y te ayudará a arrancar tu creatividad para esta ocasión.  El Reto #2 consiste en elaborar una tarjeta, una cajita o un LO y siguiendo los lineamientos presentados en el recuadro.

Luardon-Latinas Arts & Crafts-Reto 02_a

Para este reto quería crear una cajita tipo almohada (Pillow Box) la cual me parece perfecta para regalar, le puedes incluir cuanta cosita quieras y escogí  la imagen Lil Boo’s XoXo de nuestro patrocinador Lacy Sunshine, esta imagen no solo es linda sino tierna también!  La he coloreado con marcadores COPIC siguiendo la paleta de colores propuesta.  Utilicé varios corazones en distintos materiales:  brillantina-glittler, papel metálico-foil, pegatinas-stickers acolchonadas y por último un corazoncito de madera.

LA&C Reto #2

Para esta cajita he utilizado un troquel y una hoja tipo cartulina de 30.5 cms x 30.5 cms (12″ x 12″) es muy sencillo de hacer; puedes encontrar plantillas en-línea.  Las dimensiones de la cajita ensamblada son 12.5 cms x 17.8 cm x 4 cms (5″ x 7″ x 1.5″).  Como regalito he incluido una libretita para notas y un sin fin de golosinas, para que mi amiga tenga un dulce día 😉

Ahora que has visto muchas ideas te invito a participar en el Reto #2; nuestro patrocinador Lacy Sunshine obsequia un fabuloso >>>PREMIO: 3 imágenes a elegir.  Podrías escoger esta, nada mal, ¿eh? 😉

For my hop project, I made a Valentine’s card,  no surprise, huh? 😉  I created the background using a stencil and embossing paste.  I added a library card and attached a paper edge cut from the “Fun Stitched Edges” dies and wrapped it with twine.  I stamped tons of greetings from the “Chocolate Greetings” stamp set in little pieces of colored CS and glued them together to create a fun custom paper.

luardon-MCT-29th Release Blog Hop1

 

I used the typewriter from the new “Once Upon A Time” stamp.  To take it to another level, I added some glossy accent to each key.  In a wood veneer speech bubble I embossed one of the sentiments from the same stamp set .  To finish it, I added a little sparkle heart.  I know you’ll LOVE and have LOTS OF FUN with this Edition Release!!!
