Yummy Challenge

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon has a "Yummy Challenge" going on til today and I was inspired to create a project to submit!  The newest file, Lemonade Cup is too cute and I love the lemon!!  This hand soap, Lemon Meringue Cheer, I thought would be perfect to add a tag with this lemon for a quick gift.  The label on the hand soap also inspired me to use the cutting file, Breakfast Sweets, where I used the muffin cut to create a lemon meringue inspired cupcake!!  Too Cute!!



Products Used:
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Cutting Files:  Breakfast Sweets and Lemonade Cup

I love post-it notes, actually anything "note" related so I have a blast designing note holders!!  Here I made an easel back card that holds some post it notes.  
 The new tag layer added that perfect touch to decorate the front of this note holder.
 If you can see in the background, I used the zig zag die that comes in this set too!  The "LOVE" is also a part of this new die set!
 Close up of the tags, Love and zig zag.  I also used the sentiment stamp from another new release stamp set we showcased earlier this week, "Family is Everything".  I highly recommend purchasing this whole release bundle as everything coordinates with everything!!!  Gotta LOVE it!!

Day 2 ~ Sneak Peek for MCT Release

Day 2 of  sneaks for this months My Creative Time's 35th release!
Today we are showcasing "Family is Everything" which is a stamp set with coordinating dies!  This set is super fun with the ink spot stamps that come in it!  I loved using these stamps and made two cards to show!

This first card, I cut out the "love" die on white cardstock, then with the positive left on the cardstock, I inked away with the ink splotch stamps!!  After I was done, I removed the cut "love", glued in the negative pieces and then glued to the card front to have the cardstock color show through ~ how fun is this!!

 Here's a close up ~ almost looks like I cut "love" from pink cardstock and glued on top.
 My Creative Time Products Used:
Family is Everything (new release)
Paper: Scraps
Twine and Sequins

For this card, I actually used the positive cut "love" from the first card cause it looked so neat all stamped up!!

 With the ink splotches in the background, the "love" die cut looks perfect on the front!!

Tag it Tuesday ~ photo/color inspiration

Today is Tag It Tuesday over on My Creative Time blog.
We are using this photo/color palette for inspiration.  I used the picture and colors as inspiration ~ love the colors and the bike with flowers gave me a great starting point for my tag.

I used the fancy tri-fold card die as the base for my tag and then added the stitched 3x4 journal die to the center to "hide" the score lines from the card die.
Then I just added the sentiment and dies that inspired me from the picture.  This tag will be great to add to a gift bag or even compliment a scrapbook layout.
