My Creative Time 70th Edition Release Blog Hop

Image may contain: text

Welcome to the My Creative Time 70th Edition Release Blog Hop! Today is a happy day, because finally it’s release day for all of the wonderful products you’ve been seeing in the sneak peeks throughout this past week. I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest project. You should have arrived from Ruthie’s blog, but if you’ve gotten lost anywhere along the way, you can start back at the My Creative Time blog.


We are huge Halloween lovers here at my house, so for my project today, I couldn’t resist making a spooky sweet gift set for a surprise treat for my daughter who’s just recently headed off to college. Can’t wait to see her face when she gets a hold of these!


These cute treats were made with the new Stitched Bat Die and the matching Bat Sentiments stamp set, which is the freebie set for this month’s release. I absolutely love how versatile this bat is, and know it’s going to be a big hit this holiday season. Makes the most adorable candy holder, and works great on cards, layouts, and home decor projects, too.


I am the last stop along the hop, so thank you so much for joining us!

And here’s more information for you about today’s release.

My Creative Time 70th Edition Release Week- Scallop Stitched Rosette

Image may contain: text

Hi everyone! It’s sneak peek week over at My Creative Time for their 70th Edition Release, and I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest designer project. Today is the first day of peeks, and Emma is showcasing a new die called the Large Scallop Stitched Rosette.


This new die is a larger version of Emma’s previously released rosette dies, and if you have that earlier set, you can now create three different sizes of the most adorable rosettes. Now how fun is that?


Once assembled, these new rosettes measure about 3.25″ wide, and are perfect for adding to all sorts of paper crafting and home decor projects, and even gift packing, too.


I added my rosettes to some gift tags made from the Stitched Squares Inside & Out die set, and topped them with accents die cut from the Bunch of Fun Circles die set. Little banner strips were stamped with Halloween sentiments from both the Prehistoric Holidays and Too Cute to Spook sets from previous releases.

Pursuit of Happiness with Therm O Web

Happy Wednesday, Crafty Friends!


Memorial Day weekend is quickly approaching here in the States, and in honor of the holiday, I have got a patriotic card project to share with you today featuring the new Therm O Web Fancy Foils and Foil-Mates product line by GinaK Designs.


I love a good vintage-inspired Americana design, and this older Freedom paper collection from Authentique is one of my all-time favorites. I absolutely adore the contrast of the shiny bright deco foil pattern against the aged background. Such a great shabby-chic combo.


Of course Americana is all about the stars and stripes, which I’ve added here with the new GinaK products. The background striped panel is one of the new Foil-Mates sheets, foiled with Gina’s new Red Velvet Fancy Foils. I used her Premium Cardstock and some of her new dies, too, to create the framework and accents. A great way to add some detail to a simple journaling card focal piece.


I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!

My Creative Time 67th Edition Release Week- Stitched Favor Box

Hi everyone! It’s sneak peek week over at My Creative Time for their 67th Edition Release, and I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest designer project. Today is the last day of peeks, and Emma is showcasing a new gift-packaging die called the Stitched Favor Box.


This new die makes the cutest little favor box, and you will love how easy they are to put together. Perfect for making in bulk for parties, weddings, or any special occasion. I love the shape to these, and they are a good size for any number of small treats and gifts.


These favor boxes are absolutely adorable on their own, or can easily be dressed up to match any theme or event. I added a bit of ribbon through the top slit of the box, and accented with a hand-stamped tag. That sweet rose is from the Jr. Rolled Flower Dies, and the tag is from the Fun Stitched Tag Dies…. both previously released sets from Emma’s collection. The sentiment is from the new Sea You Soon stamp and die set, available tomorrow. The paper is from an older collection from Authentique called Harmony.

A Southwest Christmas with Therm O Web & Art Impressions

ai-thermoweb-swap

This week, the Therm O Web team has the great pleasure of joining up with our friends at Art Impressions! Art Impressions has just released five fabulous new sets for Christmas that I know you are going to adore. And I’m so excited to be able to offer you a chance to win the entire new collection. Keep reading below for more details on that!

audreypettit-thermoweb-ai-warmestwishescard
I made two holiday cards with the adorable Southwest Christmas stamp set, and I’d love to share the first with you here today. For this card, I decided to go with a rather nontraditional color palette to really embrace the southwestern style of this fun set. So I went with some traditional candy stripe red, but then paired it with the warm tones of natural cocoa brown.

audreypettit-thermoweb-ai-warmestwishescard2The patterned paper is from Authentique’s Festive collection, and the brown cardstock and ink are Stampin’Up’s old Close to Cocoa. I stamped the cowboy Santa image onto watercolor paper, and colored him with Zig Clean Color markers. And then I die cut nesting circles for my Santa frame. The background was stamped repeatedly with adorable chili peppers from the set to add a little spice to the design.

audreypettit-thermoweb-ai-warmestwishescard3
The sentiment is included in the Southwest Christmas set. I stamped it onto a small watercolor strip using the matching cocoa ink, and popped the banner onto the bottom of the image using a bit of foam tape. Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen was added to Santa’s knapsack and vest, and the bows on the chili peppers, as well. And for a final touch, I added sequins from 28 Lilac Lane.

Nestled Jewelry Making with Authentique

Happy Friday, Friends! Today I have something completely different to share with you. I recently tried my hand at some very simple jewelry making, using Authentique’s beautiful fall collection, Nestled.

AudreyPettit-Nestled-FallPendants
I love trying new things, and projects like this make me wonder why I don’t more often. Although I have no idea how to complete intricate jewelry pieces, these chain pendants were sooooo easy to put together. And I love finding extra ways to use some of my paper crafting supplies.

AudreyPettit-Nestled-FallPendants2
I ran across the maker of these jewelry foundations this past summer at my local stamp show, and I was immediately smitten. The pieces are made by a company out of New Mexico called Craft Fantastic, and they have everything you need for making unique one-of-a-kind jewelry. You simply adhere the clear bauble to your favorite image using their liquid adhesive, let it dry for 30 seconds, and then trim around the shape. Press it into the foundation with a tacky dot, and viola.

AudreyPettit-Nestled-OwlKeyring
There’s tons of pieces to choose from, in a variety of shapes and styles, and even images already made to fit. But I went with some favorite stickers from Authentique’s Nestled collection for mine. So fun! SO easy! And really a great gift idea, too.

Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Thankful Pockets with Sizzix

Hello Friends! Today I have another fall Thanksgiving project to share. This time, thankful pocket place settings that I made for Sizzix using brand new dies from Brenda Walton’s Everyday Favorites collection.

AudreyPettit Sizzix ThankfulPocket
These fun pockets would be a perfect addition for your holiday Thanksgiving table this year. The pocket design is so easy to put together, thanks to the help of this fabulous new Library Pocket die by Brenda Walton. And I love that there is plenty of room on the insert for adding journaling cards and handwritten notes. I think these would be fun for guests to write down what they are most thankful for this year on the bottom of the insert, and then tuck them away in the pocket for safekeeping.

AudreyPettit Sizzix ThankfulPocket2

I dressed the front of my pocket up with lots of pretty trims, and a pair of Millinery Leaves from another of Brenda’s fabulous new dies. The embossed dots and Distress ink color palette add an extra burst of cheer. And I really love that bit of rustic Kraft thrown in. Such a perfect fall look.

AudreyPettit Sizzix ThankfulPocket3
I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for creating these pockets up on the Sizzix blog, if you’d like to see more. Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day.
