My Creative Time :: Extra August Release Fun!

If you're looking for my BIG GIVEAWAY post, click HERE!

I've made quite a few projects this week, because I just couldn't stop playing with these stamps!

CAUTION: Picture prepared to be inspired!

My first project was created with the stamp set Treats for my Sweet. Halloween is always a favorite time of year for many kids, and this stamp set is a must have!
For this card, I used the Coffin Card file over at My Scrap Chick. It's such a cute file and it goes perfect with this particular sentiment. Everything was cut out with Silhouette Studio and my Cameo. I found my own font (Seven Swordsmen) for the RIP. I used black and white PaperTrey Ink paper for the card base. The pattern paper is from The Paper Studio. I used some Candy Corn Crinkle ribbon and the perfect little purple hemp twine is from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique

Ready for my second project?!
This project was created with the Piles of Smiles stamp set. I LOVE fall! It's my favorite time of the year and these sentiments and images are the cutest!
This adorable file is found over at SVG Cuts and is part of the September Scenes Stand up cards. Isn't it just so cute?
I used some Bazzill cardstock for the base of the card and all of the pattern paper is from the Autumn Splendor 6x6 paper pack by We R Memory Keepers. I used the Peachy Keen Scarecrow Boy stamp for my little scarecrow face. :) I glued some raffia down for the hay bail and then tied some brown hemp twine around it. The hemp twine is again from Liz's PaperLoft Boutique. If you haven't visited her boutique really ought to! She has just unveiled a new site and has some new items. Of course, I LOVE the hemp twine! Oh and she has awesome customer service and super fast shipping!

********** I just HAD to make a project with this new die! It's called the 3x3 Fancy Trifold Card! And it even comes with an envelope! It's b-e-a-utiful!
I decided to add my little Trifold card to an A2 sized card. This gorgeous pattern paper is from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Union Square. The card base was made up of Black and Vintage Cream PaperTrey Ink cardstock. I used the My Creative Time Flower Petal Die for the flower and topped it off with a black button and some more hemp twine. The banner is from the Poloroid die from the Just Simply Live set, and the Surprise sentiment is from the Gift Card Sentiments.

Emma has released some new Christmas stamp sets this time! I used the It's a Magical Season stamp set for this project.
For this project, I used some Kraft and Vintage Cream cardstock for the card base. The pattern paper is from the My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas 6x6 paper stack. All of the other paper is Core'dinations. I found these Christmas trees in the Silhouette Library and cut them out with my Silhouette Cameo. The buttons and twine are also from PaperTrey Ink. For my sentiment I used one of the new Stampin' Up ink pads called Primrose Petals. I totally recommend the new ink pads and if I could, I would trade all mine in and take the new ones in a heartbeat!

 The next Christmas stamp set I am showcasing is called From Our Family to Yours. It has a ton of images on it, I absolutely love the little holly stamps. :)
I used some black and white PaperTrey Ink cardstock for the base of my card. The pattern paper is from the new Teresa Collins Christmas House 6x6 paper stack. I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with this card, because I didn't want to cover up the gorgeous pattern paper. The Celebrate It ribbon is from Hobby Lobby, black hemp twine from Liz's PaperLoft Boutique, and a white button from my stash. don't forget to tune in tomorrow for the BIG release!!

Glora said...

WOW, WOW, WOW! These are all seriously AMAZING!!!! 1st of all that coffin treat box is AWESOME! I love the spider web paper and the ghost is just the right accent. 2nd that fall card has got to be one of my all time favorites. The colors are fantastic. I love the peachy face and I'm totally dying over that hay bale. That was total genius to do it with raffia it looks AMAZINGLY real. 3rd I love that trifold card on the front of an A2 card. The papers are BEAUTIFUL. 4th that Christmas card in non-traditional colors is gorgeous. I love those trees and the buttons in coordinating colors are the perfect accent. And last of all I love that holly card. The background paper is perfect and I love your stamped holly accent piece too.

I've totally heard good things about the new Stampin-Up ink, it looks like it inked up and stamped perfectly.

And of course you ROCKED the SVG'S. Hugs- Glora

LOL, I'm just realizing that coffin one is a card and not a treat box. Either way it is absolutely PERFECT!!!! Hugs- Glora

Beautiful!! Beautiful!! Beautiful!! I love each and every single one of your cards. The scarecrow one especially because I haven't seen a card like that before, that folds in different directions! Your coffin card is super adorable as well. I love the MME paper that you used for the tri-fold card.. Those Christmas cards make me so ready for it to be here already!
