Monday Madness... Imagine That - Shaped Card

Hello My Creative Time friends. Today is another Monday Madness... Imagine That over at My Creative Time. We are all making shaped cards using our Imagine or patterned paper. I'm using Emma's stamp set called My One and Only. I thought that this 'eternal love' sentiment might look kind of fun done up with an aged look. This isn't my normal style, but I think it is good to try new things.


This heart cut is from the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge. Since I don't have an Imagine I used some patterned paper from PaperTrey Ink. The paper is usually red and white and I inked it up with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The swirly heart layer and banner were cut in white paper and inked up with two shades of distress ink. I dotted around the edges of my heart and added some red rhinestones. And of course the sentiment and banner are from Emma's My One and Only stamp set.

Make sure you drop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have in store for you! Hugs- Glora

Items Used:

Sweethearts Cricut cartridge
My Creative Time Stamps - My One and Only
PaperTrey Ink - In Bloom patterned paper
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Black Gelly Roll Pen
Adhesive Rhinestones

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I know, Valentine's Day hasn't even come and gone yet... but I got my beautiful Peachy Keen stamps in the mail and could not wait to start playing with them. So I imagine you will be seeing a fair share of St Patty day projects mixed in with my Valentine ones for a bit.

Anyway, I think this is the CUTEST leprechaun I have ever seen so I just had to make him up. Seriously, it seemed like he was just smiling at me daring me not to stamp and color him ;).


Do you see that beautiful patterned paper. It is a brand new Peachy Keen Stamps background stamp called Lucky Day Shamrock. I used my favorite background stamp technique and I stamped it with a watermark ink pad. Then I sprinkled it with CLEAR embossing powder, heated it up with my heat gun and VOILA a beautiful, glossy, embossed background. The cute little leprechaun and sentiment come from the Kiss Me Leprechaun stamp set. And for the golden colored piece behind the leprechaun I cut out Emma's XL Label Die and stamped it with one of the coordinating XL Label Border stamps.

Okay that is it for today. I hope you are having a wonderful and lucky day! Take care! Hugs- Glora

Items Used:

*My Creative Time stamps - XL Label Borders
*My Creative Time Dies - XL Label Die
*Peachy Keen Stamps - Kiss Me Leprechaun
*Peachy Keen Stamps - Lucky Day Shamrock

*Clear Embossing Powder

Valentine's Day Decorations featuring Peachy Keen Stamps

Hello sweet Peachy Keen fans today I have posted this fun project over on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog. I made these cute little dangling decorations, they are very simple to make and are about 2 feet long. I made 3 different ones to use as Valentine's Day decorations.


Are you interested in making some of these? Well here is what I used to make them. First, I cut this heart from the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge at 5". I cut 3 white scalloped hearts and 6 pink hearts so that I could make them double sided. They swirl around a little and I wanted both sides to be equally as cute. For the adorable faces I used some of the beautiful 4" face stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps. Yes that is right 4" faces. I'm completely in love with them and my mind has been swimming with all the possibilities. I used the faces called, PKK-03 4" Happy Lash Simple Smile, PKK-05 4" Happy Lashes - Open Mouth and PKK-06 4" Happy Lash Mouth Open w/ Tongue Out.

Here is a little closer look at the face with the tongue out:


For the swirl piece all I did was take a spiral shape from the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge. Here is a picture of what it looks like when it is first cut out:


I cut it at 4 1/2" but you could cut it smaller or larger depending on how long you want yours to be. I punched a hole in the piece at the very center and one at the end of the spiral. Then I put some twine through the holes and tied a knot to make some little loops. The top twine loop so that I can hang my decoration up and the bottom one is to attach the dangling double sided hearts. The weight of the heart on the middle part pulls the spiral down and makes a long whimsical decoration.

I think I will be making some of these for each holiday using these awesome 4" faces. I'm thinking shamrocks, easter eggs, ghosts, snowflakes, the possibilities are endless...

I also want to show you a close up of each heart real quick because I think these faces make the hearts look SO sweet! Just imagine how cute these hearts would look as a 5" shaped card for Valentine's Day.

For this one I used: PKK-06 4" Happy Lash Mouth Open w/ Tongue Out




And this one has PKK-05 4" Happy Lashes - Open Mouth


Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you were inspired to try something fun and different. Have a super Peachy day! Hugs- Glora

Wishing you the Best Birthday Ever!

I made this card with a darling and special little 3 year old in mind. She LOVES elephants and the colors pink and green. So I thought this cute card with an elephant holding 3 balloons from its tail would be a hit with her and I was right :). She loves it and I'm so glad.


This darling elephant is a stamp by Peachy Keen Stamps and is called Happy Go Lucky Elephant. It is just too cute and did you know that this darling stamp has just been made into a die as well. You can pre-order the die at a sale price through January 30th HERE. And of course the stamp I used is already available for purchase. The balloons are a paper punch I've had for years and the PERFECT birthday sentiment is from the Wow! So Many Candles stamp set by My Creative Time.

I hope you are having a FABULOUS day. I will be back on Friday for a fun Peachy Keen Valentine's Day project. I hope to see you then. Hugs- Glora

MCT January Release Blog Hop

Hello My Creative Time friends. Today is the big day where you can grab all of these beautiful stamps and dies that we have been showing you this week. If you came here from the talented Cindy's blog than you are in the right spot. If not, make sure to start back at Emma's blog so you don't miss a single thing!

For the blog hop Emma asked me to feature her brand new Script Type Background. This set includes 2 beautiful 3x3 backgrounds. They are so pretty and full of inspirational words. The first one is more of a script style and the second is more of vintage typewriter style. Both a very fun and pretty. I have made a couple of quick projects with this set. The first is a card.


The background on the squares and on the hearts are from this set. I just alternated them back and forth. The heart die and the big sentiments are all from the already released 100% Sweetness set.

I also made a cute little box using the Script Type Background for the patterned paper (since the stamp is 3x3 and I needed a 6x6 piece of paper for the die, I just stamped it 4 times). I used the beautiful new Bubblegum Treat Box Die for the box and the AWESOME Be Mine bonus stamp set for the grungy heart and sentiment.


These would definitely make for some cute and easy Valentine favors.

Here are pictures of the newly released stamps that I featured today.

MCT January Stamp Release Sneak Peek #1

Hello My Creative Time fans and welcome to another sneak peek week. Today I am featuring one of Emma's newest stamp sets called Fast Pitch Rocks! It is an awesome set for the softball players in your life.

I made a gift card holder for the coach for the end of the season along with a card.


I made my own background paper for both of these using the softball sentiment off of the Fast Pitch Rocks stamp set. For the gift card I did use a sentiment from Emma's already release Sports Sentiments set as well as her Embossed Gift Card Holder, but everything else on the gift card and card come from the Fast Pitch Rocks stamp set. For the gift card I used a technique that I saw my DT sister Katie use on a basketball card. I was hoping to give the effect of her swinging at the ball.

Happy Valentine's Day Gift Card Holder

I am having lots of fun with my new My Creative Time stamps and my new Peachy Keen Stamp of the Month set so I decided to combine them for a cute little project. I wanted to share another quick sneak of a beautiful sentiment on one of Emma's newest stamp sets. I just LOVE this font. Emma's big sneak peek and release week starts Monday morning and you won't want to miss out. Here is a little something to help get you excited for next week. 


I used Emma's Embossed Gift Card Holder, along with a sentiment from one of her new stamp sets. I also used a sweet little angel from the new January 2012 Stamp of the Month set by Peachy Keen Stamps. Isn't she so sweet? I wish my coloring did her full justice.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will join in the linky party going on over at the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog right now. And I hope to see you back here bright on early Monday for the start of Emma's January stamp release sneak peek week. Have a great one! Hugs- Glora

PKS Linky Party

If you are looking for Debbie (DD's Crafts) 50th birthday blog hop, please scroll down 2 posts or click HERE!!!

Hello Peachy Keen friends. It is my first official Peachy Keen Design Team post and I'm super excited to share a couple of cards that I made with the January 2012 Stamp of the Month set by Peachy Keen Stamps. It is a super cute and very versatile set. I also wanted to let you know that we will be having a linky party over on the PKS Challenge Blog so that all of you can link up a Peachy Keen project too! I hope you will all join in the Peachy fun!

My first card uses the largest heart on the January 2012 Stamp of the Month set. I also used the XOXOXOXO A-2 Background Stamp for the background.


Isn't she a cutie? I just love that face. I colored her by inking her up with Distress Ink and Versafine inks in 3 shades of red (I've seen my DT sister Nikki do this with distress inks and had to try it). From there I did a little paper piecing. I will admit that I was too lazy to cut out all the little flowers so I added some Prima flowers and pearls instead. I also found out that this darling sentiment from the January 2012 stamp of the month set fit perfectly on Emma's Stitched Oval Die.

And here is my second card, I just could not get this idea out of my head until I made her up:


I used the smaller angel from the January 2012 Stamp of the Month set and colored her up. I trimmed her wings and halo off and added a face from the Just Baby Faces stamp set by PKS. I hand cut and inked up her legs. The bed is cut from the Sugar and Spice Cricut Lite cartridge. And the perfect sentiment for this scene is from Emma's Pain Pain Go Away stamp set.

Here is a closer look at this stamp set. Just imagine this full sheet of stamps at 8 1/2" x 11". They are big beautiful stamps. And there are SO many possibilities with this set, I just love the options just from interchanging the faces...


Make sure to stop by the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog to see what awesome inspiration the design team has for you and to link up your own Peachy Keen project too. Hugs- Glora

Monday Madness... Imagine That (Congratulations on Your Baptism)

Hello My Creative Time friends and welcome to another Monday Madness... Imagine That. For these projects we always make something with our Imagine Machines or something Imagine like if we don't have an Imagine. I don't have an Imagine so I used patterned paper and a background stamp to make my card Imagine like. 


Emma had asked us to use the colors chocolate, teal and red. I also got to use her Many Greetings stamp set. I LOVE this set because it has a little bit of EVERYTHING on it! This was PERFECT timing for using this stamp set too because my daughter just got baptized on Saturday and it had the perfect sentiment for that. The girl on this card may look a little older than you might expect for a baptism card, but in my church children don't get baptized until they are 8. My little paper doll's darling face is from the Happy :Lashes Face Assortment by Peachy Keen Stamps. I also did some clear embossing on her dress with the Sweet Lace background stamp by Market Street Stamps. I really love the white on white effect it gives.

Make sure to hop on over to Emma's blog to see what she and some of the designers have for you today! Have a wonderful day! Hugs- Glora

3D Wednesday with My Creative Time

*If you are looking for the Simply Crafts Challenge scroll down or click HERE*


Welcome My Creative Time friends to another 3D Wednesday. Today I am going to feature one of Emma's newest Valentine sets called Classmate Valentines. I just love this set to pieces. It is going to be SO perfect for making Valentine's with my girls for their friends, cousins and classmates.

For my project today I have made a couple of heart favor boxes. The first one is a darling little bear.


These little containers are the perfect size for 2 or 3 little bags on M&M's or Skittles. The container comes from the Tags Bags and Boxes Cricut cartridge. I used my Gypsy to size these at 11.5" wide and I was able to fit two heart containers on a piece of 12 x 12 cardstock. I used the Classmate Valentine set along with Emma's darling Scallop and Stitched Circle Die set and then tied it off with a pretty piece of twine.

My second one is almost identical except that I used the darling little kitty and its coordinating sentiment:


I hope you enjoyed today's project. These would be super fast and easy to mass produce and make with your kids too. Make sure to drop by Emma's blog and see what she and the rest of the design team came up with too! I know there will be tons of beautiful inspiration! Have a wonderful day! Hugs- Glora

Make a Wish, Fairy Birthday Card

My daughter recently had a birthday and she made sure to tell me what kind of a birthday card she wanted. She wanted TinkerBell's fairy friend Fawn on it. This is a very fitting choice for my daughter because she LOVES animals and Fawn is an Animal Fairy. Anyway, I had two options for Fawn my TinkerBell Cricut cartridge or some EK Success Fairy Stamps that I have had for a couple of years. I just happened to be in the mood for coloring so the stamps won over the debate. And here is her card:


The beautiful orange background paper is made with a background stamp by Market Street Stamps called Punched Tin. I stamped it with watermark ink then embossed it with clear embossing powder! I always love the way the clear embossing turns out! The beautiful sentiment is from My Creative Time's Polka Dot Surprise stamp set! This was one of Emma's earlier sets and I just find myself using it over and over again. I LOVE it!

Here is a little bit of a close up of Fawn (I used some Crystal Stickles on her wings and colored her with Copic Markers):


I hope you are having a terrific day! Take care! Hugs- Glora
