To My Little Firecracker.......{MCT Anything Goes}

Good Morning everyone!
I am sharing a card today for My Creative Time's
Anything Goes Thursday!
Since the 4th of July is just around the corner, I made a cute celebration card using the newly released set~ Scalloped Stitched Circle
For my card I used designer paper from Doodlebug Designs~Patriotic Parade and even pulled out my prismacolor pencils!
To make this card I started with an A2 size card base, added a layer of white cardstock and then die cut the designer paper using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die.
Next I die cut the circle and then the matching scalloped circle using the new set~ Scalloped Stitched Circles. The circle die cut was through the designer paper, the scalloped circle was with some matching navy cardstock from my stash.
The sentiment, from the set~ My Little Firecracker was stamped inside the circle and then the matching firecracker was stamped and colored using my prismacolor pencils.
Some added star die cuts from the 3 Star Stitched Dies were added for some extra details.
So there is my completed card....what do you think???

Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the DT made!
I know the inspiration is AWESOME!!!!

But there is one more day of projects with so lets get started....

You are not going to want to miss a thing!

For my project, I get to showcase the following sets~
Pinwheel Centers (FREEBIE)
&
Small & Medium Stitched Pinwheel Dies

I am pretty excited about my project...take a look at what I made using these sets....
OMG how adorable are these hair clips?!?!?
I used the new pinwheel dies, both small and large to make 2 different size/sets of clips.
These were so super easy to make, I took it a step further and used my embroidery machine to make the clip covers, but you could also just cover the clips with some ribbon instead.
I used the dies to diescut the pinwheels and centers using felt. After putting the pinwheels together, adding a sparkle brad or pearl brad to the centers, I used my hot glue gun to attach then to the clips.
Easy peesy and ready to be worn!!

Now for the entire release.....

MCT 68th New Release Sneak Day 3.....{Happy 4th of July}

Good Morning !
It is Day 3 of sneaks for the
68th New Release from
Boy is this week flying by!!! But I sure hope you are enjoying all these awesome sneaks from the DT!
Today we are showcasing this releases FREEBIE die~ Pinwheel Centers along with the new Small & Medium Stitched Pinwheel Dies
and here is the project I made using these sets...

How super fun are these new dies!!!! For my project I made some 4th of July wands/party favors. The designer paper I used for both pinwheels is from DoodleBug Designs~ Patriotic Parade. I have a close-up of both so you can see...

This pinwheel is the smaller one...so super CUTE! See that center star..that is the FREEBIE (well one of the dies in the freebie set). To make this one, I die cut the pinwheel 2 times, putting it together with the sparkle brad and star center. Before attaching it to my polka dot straw, I attached some long white and blue ribbon. The whole piece (pinwheel, brad and ribbon) was then placed through a small hole on the straw to hold it all together.
For the sentiment, I use the Smallest of the Ribbon End Banner and stamped the sentiment from the Teeny Tag Holidays set.
Here is the larger of the 2 pinwheels. You can see the difference in the way the brad looks through the larger star center.  I assembled this one the same as the smaller one, used the Ribbon End Banners for the sentiment and stamped the sentiment from the set~ My Little Firecracker.
I can not get over how easy these are to put together and how fun they are!!!!!
I can not wait to make more projects with these!!

MCT 68th New Release!!!

Well today we have another Die set to showcase.
More Scalloped Stitched Ovals
and here is the card I made using that set.....

My sweet card uses several MCT products. Of course the sneak set~ More Scalloped Stitched Ovals was used as a frame for my cutie ice cream cone.
The ice cream set comes for the stamp/die set~ You Make Life Sweet and after cutting all the pieces and assembling it, I inked up the added face that comes with this set, stamped it onto the scoop and added some white gel pen and chalk.
I of course pulled out my favorite die~ The Stitched Rectangular Frame Die for the top layer of my card mat and used the More Stitched Edges Die for the ripped look at the bottom.
The sentiment is also from the You Make Life Sweet set and my card was finished off with some random enamel dots.

When I started to design my card, I pulled the Doodlebug Designs paper pad~Flea Market
and saw the sunflower sheet. I used that inspiration to design my card, of course using that paper pack for all the designer paper.
I used 2 different size circle dies and the matching scallop dies to make my sunflowers. The leaves were added using the Stitched Pretty Flower & Leaves Dies and A Thankful Heart set.
Moving onto the sentiment, I  used the Ribbon End Banners Die and stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Day set.
So foam to pop up the dies and sentiment and a little white gel pen completes my card.

Let's Have a Date Night......{MCT Weird Holiday Tuesday}

Good Morning Everyone!
It is Weird Holiday day over on the MCT page and today I am sharing a card for
Drive-in Movie Day
 which is actually celebrated today~Tue, June 6
and is considered an
Unofficial holiday but is celebrated in many countries

Here is the card I made for this fun and weird holiday........
To make my card, I used several MCT products. I started with a kraft cardstock base, added a layer of designer paper from Teresa Collins~Memorabilia collection, a layer of white cardstock and then another layer of matching designer paper.
For the white and top layer of designer paper, I took the More Stitched Edges Dies for the ripped look at the bottoms and then die cut the top layer using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More.
Moving right along with my design, I used the Date Night set for the movie tape, the stars and the sentiment and then added the sentiment onto the Stitched Fun Ticket Dies
The final touches to my card were added with a cute red stitched heart from the Stitched Heart Background dies and a trendy twine bow.

A super fun card to design, put together and give out...don't you think??

So Happy for you Graduate......{MCT Whatever Wednesday}

Good Morning everyone and welcome toWhatever Wednesday
withMy Creative Time!

Today I have a graduation card and matching treat box to share that I made in my kids school colors but of course these can be done in any color combo. 
Take a look and let me know what you think....
A while ago I did a tutorial for MCT on how to make your own stencil using MCT dies. You can look back at that project HERE.
I saved that stencil and used it to make the background of this card and to decorate the Stitched Favor Box Die. Those stars for the stencil came from the Bunch of Stitched Stars.
Once the background was inked up with my red distress ink, I stamped the sentiment using the new Grad Night stamp/die set as well as die cutting the grad hat to pop up onto the front of my card. A small enamel dot helped to hold the tassel in place as well.
Finally to complete my card, I die cut and layered all the pieces of the card mat using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die & More set.
A matching card and gift box all ready to give to the special graduate!

So what do you think???
I hope you like my project!
