What a Treat Wednesday!

Good morning my sweet friends & welcome back to another "What a Treat Wednesday!"
Today my AMAZING team & myself have some FUN treats to share with you!
For my treat, I used my FAMOUS "Lollipop Holder Die!"  Ever since I came out with this die 3 years ago, this is probably STILL my most popular die to date!  I EXTRA LOVE it because you can create a treat using this die in NO TIME AT ALL! :)
All of my "All Around" stamp sets coordinate PERFECTLY with this particular die! I decided to use one of my "revised" stamp sets "All Around Everything II"
I've had a LOT of questions regarding this set along with the "All Around Eveything I & III" I was asked if I can sell the dies separate, the thing is that I cannot because all of the images are not the same   I suggested to a few of you IF you really like these "REVISED" sets, go ahead & sell your original sets so you can pick these "REVISED" sets up.  Hope this makes sense my friends!

Okay, back to my treat! ;)  If you would like to see HOW you put this lollipop holder together, you can see the video for it HERE

Here is a side view of it so you can see the "original Gourmet" lollipop!

Lastly, here is a close-up of it!

Tag it Tuesday!

GOOD MORNING & welcome back to another "Tag it Tuesday!"

I hope you are ALL keeping cool out there! Thank GOD the forecast change, it was "supposed" to be 107, but it is not going to be 104 today :(  I am SOOO NOT looking forward to this!  For those of you who are having rain, PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE send it my way??? Please??? We can SURE use it! 
I rested & kept my AC on full blast because that is the ONLY way I will survive this heat! Feeling much better today! I KNOW my PG&E will be a little high, but it's SOOO WORTH it! ;)

Okay, now onto my tag!  Since 4th of July is this weekend, I thought it would be fun to create a tag perfect for the occasion!  This is a PERFECT little tag to put on whatever you are bringing to a 4th of July party & it would make a SUPER CUTE presentation!

This tag was SUPER QUICK to put together.  I used my "Clean Color Real Brush" markers to color in my firecracker! I used "Primary Apple Red" embossing powder by WOW for my sentiment.  After I embossed the sentiment, I felt like my firecracker needed some embossing too! SO I just took a stylus that I had on my craft table & dipped it onto my versa mark ink pad & just dabbed it onto the firecracker in tiny sections on my firecracker.  I also used the same powder for my tiny stars as well!  Over all, I really like how it came out!

MCT Products Used:
~ My Little Firecracker (Revised)
~ Stitched XL Label Die

Made in Minutes!

Good morning my sweet friends & welcome back to another "MADE IN MINUTES!"  
I do have to say that I cheated a little bit :(  I'm not sure how the weather is in all of your states, but our weather is supposed to reach 107 by Tuesday!!!!!!! We've had pretty warm weather & it's kind of making me sick :(  I wasn't feeling to well after Anthony's tournament yesterday & just went straight to bed!  So I decided to look through my posts & came across this tag I had created last year for "Made in Minutes"!  This tag is an oldie by goodie AND there is also a video for it HERE

Do Over Thursday!

GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome back to another "Throwback Thursday DO-OVER"
Today my team & I are featuring cards similar to what we had made in the past that we were not happy with! So this is our chance to do them over!

Okay, when I first made this card, I did NOT LIKE IT AT ALL :(
So this was my opportunity to do it OVER! :)

Here is my "revised" card! ;)  As you can see, I switched it up & made it more masculine this time around!  Since it is a masculine version, I decided to not add the little hexy dies this time around! I did use the same stamp set, but added the "UR" from "Already Missing You" & I also used the "&" from my "Alpha Pack"! I just heat embossed the words using some white embossing powder, then I did some water coloring over it using my Peerless Watercolors! I just love the resist look of this card by watercoloring over the embossing words!  I then just used my Stitched Rectangular Dies to cut it out, added a little arrow & last added the heart sequin then adhered it to my standard size card base!!!  Even though I loved the colors from the first one,  I am HAPPY w/my manly version card! ;)

Now onto my TALENTED design team!  Click on each name to visit each blog to see what their original looked like before the "do-over!" ;)

Inspire Me Wednesday!

Good morning my sweet friends & welcome to another "Inspire Me Wednesday!"  Today my team has some GORGEOUS cards for you!  For my card, I found this card HERE on pinterest & it inspired my card I created here.  This was a VERY EASY card to put together! I "tried" to do an ombre watercolor background using my peerless watercolors.  As soon as it dried, I used my rectangular die to cut it.  Then I added the vintage stitched label dies using some vellum & some scraps of pattern paper! Next I used some vellum and more scraps to cut out my butterflies using my pretty butterfly dies.  Next, I stamped a sentiment from our newest set called Already Missing you.  I stamped it onto one of the stitched decorative banners.  Then instead of using adhesive to adhere it to my card, I decided to use my Tim Holtz mini attacher instead to attach it to the layer of my card!  It was missing something, so I went ahead & added some cream color hemp twine & created a simple bow!
Lastly, I adhered my layer onto a standard size card gray card stock base.   I wanted to add sequins SOOO BAD, but I put them on & for some strange reason, they were not flowing with my card today!;)  Hope you enjoy the simplicity of my card today.

MCT Products Used:
~ Already Missing You
~ Stitched Decorative Banners
