MCT 73rd Edition Blog Hop & Sale!

Welcome to the My Creative Time 73rd Edition Release Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the very talented Jessica.  If you just happened upon here, you might want to head over to Emma's blog, to the beginning of the hop.  This is a very fun release, and I hope you are as excited about it as we are!


For my project today, I made a fun little K-cup holder, using a Lori Whitlock design that I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  I couldn't resist it after finding some Starbucks Hot Chocolate pods for the Keurig!  After assembling it, I used the new Hot Chocolate Season set to decorate it.  I stamped the hot cocoa mug on white cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating die, and then I also stamped it onto a piece of patterned paper so that I could paper piece it.  The three little white hearts were made with dies from this set.  I finished it off with one of  the cute sentiments, stamping it onto a tag made with one of the Stitched Zig Zag Tag Dies.  Lastly, I added some Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist Twill Ribbon and a little twine to tie it all together!


Here's a closer look at the Hot Chocolate Season.  It is available now in the My Creative Time Store


Starting THIS Friday, November 17, 2017 @ 8AM PST, our "Freebie" for this release is the  Perfect Matcha stamp set.  It will be given to the FIRST 75 shoppers!  If you are one of the first 75 shoppers, it will be automatically added to your package at the time of packaging/shipping.  Once the first 75 shoppers come through, the set will be available for purchase.  So if it's for sale in the store, you are not one of the 75.  No exceptions will be made.  This freebie set is not a part of the "bundle" and will be sold separately!

It's our last day of the My Creative Time 73rd Edition sneak peeks!  Tomorrow is the day you can finally see this awesome release in its entirety and get shopping!  But first, we have one last stamp and die set for you to get a peek at.  Hot Chocolate Season is an adorable set full of the cutest images, coordinating dies, and sentiments!


For my card today, I started by taking a piece of Papertrey Ink spring rain cardstock and using the stencil from the Christmas Greetings Kit with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Weathered Wood to created a fun background.  I die cut it using one of the Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out.

I then die cut a banner, using one of the Sentiment Label Dies, and stamped an adorable sentiment from Hot Chocolate Season.  The darling mugs are also from this new set!  I love all of the added details, such as the hearts and the candy canes!  So fun!  I colored the mugs with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.

MCT 73rd Edition Sneak Peek #3

Are you ready for another day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Today we are sneaking this month's freebie:  Perfect Matcha!  This is a fun set with 9 sentiments, and it's especially great if you're a fan of matcha tea.  However, there are plenty of other sentiments too, as you'll see on my card. Perfect Matcha is free with your order this Friday if you are one of the first 75 shoppers, beginning at 8 AM PST.


For my card today, I thought it would be fun to take the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from Perfect Matcha and do some repeated stamping, using my Misti to help me line it up.  I used inks from Papertrey Ink in Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest, Limeade Ice, Hawaiian Shores, and Winter Wisteria.  My card base, cut from PTI Stamper's Select White Cardstock, is cut at 3 1/2" x 5".

That adorable little owl is from the Grad Night set.  I took a little more time paper piecing him, but I like how he turned out.  His balloon was made with one of the Stitched Circle Balloon Dies.

MCT 73rd Edition Sneak Peek #2

Are you ready for another day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Today we have a sweet new stamp and die set to share called Just Brew It!  This is an adorable set full of fun coffee themed sentiments, images, and dies.


It's never too early to start thinking about holiday gifts!  Today I put together a cute card that holds a gift card for somebody who has been helping me a lot this year.  The sentiment and adorable coffee cup on the front are from Just Brew It!  I love that coffee cup!  I stamped it in white, kraft, and red patterned paper, so that I could paper piece it.  The sweet snowman was made with the Winter Snowman Dies.  I also used one of the More Stitched Rectangular Dies for the background, along with one of the Fun Stitched Edges Dies for the snow.


On the inside of the card I made my gift card holder, using the Tag Gift Pocket Die, and I stamped it with another fun sentiment from Just Brew It!

MCT 73rd Edition Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 73rd Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have quite an adorable release to share with you this week!  First off is Hey There Cute-Tea!


This set is full of adorable sentiments and really cute images with coordinating dies.  For my project today,  I thought it would be fun to make a cute tag to tie on to a little gift mug of teas!   For my tag base, I used one of the dies from Holiday Tags.  I die cut it once from Papertrey Ink kraft cardstock and once from some fun patterned paper from the Simple Stores Harvest Love collection.

The sentiment and adorable coffee cup, complete with tea bag tag are from Hey There Cute-Tea!  I colored the cup with Inktense colored pencils.

MCT Cook 'N Craft


It's Cook 'N Craft with My Creative Time! Let's start with the crafting.  The new MCT Christmas Greetings Kit has put me in the mood to make Christmas cards!  I used the ornament and star die from the kit, along with the "string" dies to hang my ornaments.  They are a little hard to see in the photo, since I used silver paper.  The J and the Y were cut with the Uppercase Fun Dies and the pine boughs were cut with dies from Fun Stitched Ornaments & More.  I used the Scallop Stitched Square Dies for the background.


Now onto the cooking!  Since I did this all on Sunday, I made one of my favorite lunch recipes so that I could fill up some bento boxes for a few lunches for this week.  One Pot Mediterranean Quinoa with Spinach is delicious!  Click here for the recipe.


I love these bento box containers that I bought from Amazon.  They come in a set of 4 and stack nicely in my fridge.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog for more cooking and crafting inspiration today!
