My Creative Time: To Die For Tuesday

Hi, today is To Die For Tuesday over on the My Creative Time Blog. The design team is showing how to use Emma's amazing dies in new ways. I used my dies to cut out the center of the Frame Die to create a shadow box look on the front of my card. I love how it turned out!


The pattern paper mat was cut out using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die. The flower was cut out using dies from the Stitched Daisy Die set and the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. All of the flower pieces were cut out using stiffened felt. The flower center was colored in with a Copic marker. The word "thanks" was cut out using a die from the Thank You & Frame Die Set


To create the shadow box window with the Frame Die,  several dies were used to cut out the center of the die cut. 




1. After the Frame is cut out, use the Stitched "Capture" Frame Die to cut out the middle of the frame.  

Partially cut out one side of the middle by only running the die through the cutting machine half way. 

 

Then very carefully, flip the die to the other non-cut side and match it up to the grooves of the cut lines. Then partially cut out the other side. 



2. Use the die from the 4x4 Journal Die & More Die Set to cut out the next area on both sides.





3. Use the smaller of the Treat Label Dies to cut out the bit of curved area at the top of the die cut on both sides. 


Then you will have your cut out Frame




Then the Frame was pop dotted all the way around it and added to the card to create the shadow box look.

Hi and welcome to Day 4 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 67th Edition Release. Today we are sneaking the fabulous new Stitched Favor Box. I love this new little treat box!! With school ending for the year, I thought these little apple felt boxes would be fun to give to teachers and friends with a sweet little treat inside.  I really love how they turned out.



The new Stitched Favor Box was cut out of three colors of stiffened felt and put together. The little flower was cut out using the Jr. Rolled Flowers in white felt. The little flower center was cut out using a die from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. For the apple stem, the bottom of the largest Stitched Large Balloon Die was cut out of brown felt. The leave is from the Stitched Leaves Dies. The three pieces were glued onto the one side of the tab so you only have to open the one side to get to the treats. 

The little worms were stamped and cut out with the coordinating die from the Grad Night Stamp Set.  Each worm was colored in with Copic markers and the cheeks chalked with pink chalk ink. The little bow ties were stamped and cut out by hand in red felt using a stamp from the You Had Me A Meow Stamp Set.  The little worms were all hot glued to the side of the felt apples.

My Creative Time: 67th Edition Release: Sneak Peeks Day 1

Hi and welcome to day 1 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 67th Edition Release. Today we are sneaking the fun new set call The Adventure Begins. This has great image stamps as well as the perfect sentiments to go along with them. Great for any person starting on a new journey in their life.
I decided to create a fun slider card with a hidden message behind the scooter.



 The scooter along with the balloons were stamped and cut out with the coordinating dies from the The Adventure Begins Stamp Set.  Part of the scooter and the balloons were stamped on card stock and cut out by hand. The tires and the seat of the scooter were colored in with Copic markers. 

The Cartoon Cloud Background Stamp was stamped onto a white card stock mat that was cut out using the Stitched Square Dies.  The same square dies were used to cut out the larger pattern paper mat. Both mats were layered with pink card stock mats that were cut out with a paper trimmer. 

For the slider, I cut out two strips of gray card stock using the Stitched Belly Band Dies.  Then on one of the strips I cut out the middle using a die from the Fun Vertical Greetings Stamp Set. To create the sliding effect for the scooter, two pennies were pop dotted through the opening onto the scooter. Then the strip was foam tapped onto the second strip of gray card stock. A strip of grass was glued to the top of the slider strips before the mechanism was glued down onto the card. The grass was cut out using one of the Pretty Edge Dies

The sentiment, also from The Adventure Begins,  was stamped onto the cute little Stitched Cartoon Cloud Die cut. The edges of the cloud were inked with a light blue ink. The cloud was then glued to the card and the balloons were then pop dotted onto it as well. To finish the card, the "Congrats" sentiment also from this new set was stamped in the little slider cut out for a fun hidden message.
