MCT Original Gourmet Lollipop Collaboration!

Good morning and welcome to our collaboration with the FABULOUS "Original Gourmet Lollipop" company!  We are ALL super excited to partner up with this company because they truly do have the BEST lollipops around!  Many of you are familiar with our famous Stitched Lollipop Holder Die, which fits the famous OG lollipops PERFECTLY!  Well, we just discovered the "mini" OG lollipops!  We LOVED them so much that Emma designed a brand new Mini Stitched Lollipop Die.  This new die fits the mini OG lollipops to PERFECTION!  Join us as we showcase BOTH sizes of these dies so you can see the difference!

I had so much fun using the Stitched Lollipop Holder Die and the Mini Stitched Lollipop Die to make Halloween treats!  I used patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Wicked  collection for the small treat and Papertrey Ink's Halloween Treats for the larger treat.  On the larger one, I also used the Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies, stamping "EEK!" from Happy Haunting in the center.  I then added a few bats made with the Wicked Fun Dies and I created a little strip at the bottom with a border stamp from Spooky Time.

For the smaller treat, I used the little scallop die that comes with it, but added a circle made with one of the dies from You Are Spot On.  The sentiment there came from Too Cute to Spook, as did the little spider stamp and die!

Here's a look at the side, showcasing the yummy OG lollipops.  FYI, the Pumpkin Latte flavor is DELICIOUS!!! 

And here's a look at the Stitched Mini Lollipop Die.

MCT Favorite Stamp of the Month

Today we are featuring another My Creative Time Favorite Stamp of the Month!  This month, it's one of my favorites, Wow! So Many Candles!  If this set has been on your wish list, you can pick it up here at a discount price.  It's on sale for the entire month of September!  The sale ends on September 30, 2016, at 12:00 AM PST.

For my card today I made a round card base, using two of the More Stitched Circle Dies.  I stamped circles of all different sizes and colors, using the circles stamps from You Are Spot On.  I then heat embossed a candle from Make a Wish, using clear embossing powder and Black Onyx Verasfine Ink.  I poked holes on either side of the candle with a paper piercer so that I could add a twine bow that would look like it was tied around the candle.  Lastly I stamped and heat embossed one of the many fun sentiments from Wow! So Many Candles and added a few Papertrey Ink Rainstones to finish off the card.

Here's a look at the whole Wow! So Many Candles set:

MCT "Do Over" Thursday

It's "Do Over" Thursday with My Creative Time!  For today's project I took a card that I made for Easter a couple of years ago (you can see it further down in this post) and redid it in a get well theme.  Sometimes with these cute MCT stamp and die sets, a simple card packs a big punch!  All I did for this card was make a 3 1/2" x 5" kraft card base, add a sentiment from the Ouch stamp and die set.  Then I added a cute bandaid that I made from a die in this set and some patterned paper from Echo Park's Sunny Days Ahead collection.

On the inside I added another sentiment, plus a little die cut heart, made with another die that is included in this set.  Super simple, but very sweet!

Here is my original Easter card I made a couple of years ago with the Hello Chickie! stamp and die set.  More details can be found here.

Cricut Horse Birthday Card

Another birthday card for a student today!  I love how I can easily personalize a card with my Cricut Explore!  Right now I have a month of Cricut Access, so it's easy to find just the right image.  The girl whose card I was making loves horses, and I found a cute one on the Old West cartridge.  I made a background using some cute patterned paper from Echo Parks' Birthday Wishes (Girl) collection, adding a hill, using one of the My Creative Time More Stitched Edges dies.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Stylish Sentiments:  Birthday.
