MCT September Mini Release Blog Hop


Welcome to the My Creative Time September Mini Release Blog Hop!  This release may be mini, but the new stamps and dies are AWESOME!  You should have arrived here from Jeanne's blog, but if you just happened upon here, be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see a video showcasing the new release!

For my project today, I used the dies from the brand new Just Tags stamp and die set to create a little banner!


As you can see, the tags come with a layer, and the smaller size has Emma's signature stitching.  I used the Mischievous paper line from My Mind's Eye and used the coordinating brads to attach the twine to the back of each piece.  For this one,  I stamped a spooky ghost from the MCT Treats for My Sweet stamp set onto kraft paper, colored it with a white gelly roll pen, and cut it out.  The sentiment is from the MCT All Around Halloween stamp set, stamped onto a banner cut with a die from Just Simply Live.


This cute sentiment is also from Treats for My Sweet, stamped onto paper cut with the Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies.


I stamped this adorable pumpkin and witch's hat from Treats for My Sweet on kraft paper, colored the pumpkin with Copics, and cut them out.


More cuteness from Treats for My Sweet!


For the last piece, I stamped the spiderweb, spider, and sentiment from Treats for My Sweet, and I also used the dies from Teeny Tag Greetings for the sentiment.  Using the new Just Tags made making this banner a breeze!  Here's a look at the whole set:

I had not thought of making a banner from this cute little die...the tags are perfect for it. Maybe if I start a Christmas one now (when I get the die) it might be done in time to enjoy before Christmas is here. I am so slow :( Great job on your banner. I love the chicken wire on the frame on the wall...perfect for hanging different projects.
