MCT's 3-D Wednesday

Missing You Mini Vase...

Happy Happy Wednesday Crafty Peeps! I hope your week has been crafty and productive so far. As for My Creative Time and Design Team Members, we have been having a Blast, playing with everything from the 24th edition release. I cannot wait until all of you start playing with the new stamps and dies too! Ok, for today's project we are to create a project other than a layout or card. I love... love... love 3-D Wednesdays because it gives me a chance to create home decor or gifts for my loved ones and friends. I try to use any recycled objects I have put away for a special creation. For today, I used a pyrex test tube ($.25) that I purchased at a huge flea market here in South Texas. Here are some shots of my project:

My Mom likes to collect different mini vases to put flowers next to My Dad's Urn. So, when I saw these Pyrex test tubes, I knew exactly what I wanted to create with them.
I added clear marbles in the tubes for dimension and to somewhat hide the flower stem.
I loved how I distressed the sentiment and tag. I wanted an aged look to it. The heart charm gives the tag an antique look also. A simple yet bright color bow was tied around the tube.
I used a styrofoam circle for the base. Covered it with faux wood grain pattern paper. Distressed the edges with brown fluid chalk. Used an Xacto knife to cut a circle for the tube to fit in the center. Adhered it with hot glue. Die cut some beautiful Butterflies with different scraps of pattern paper.
This beautiful Rose came from one of my rose bushes. It was another Inspiration for my project today. I bringing my garden indoors. It reminds me of why I LOVE being outdoors during Spring.

Good Morning Crafty Friends! I am so so excited Friday is finally here! I am pretty sure ALL of you will enjoy this Release. There is alot for you to see today. Hold on to your Crafty Hearts because this Release is... HUGE!!! So, enjoy your time hopping through My Creative Time 24th Edition Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop.

I will be showcasing the "You're So Brilliant" Stamp and Die Set. Here are some snapshots of my Project:

 I purchased a set of journals last month with a plan to create an "IDEA" Craft Journal. Since, it had a black, white, and grey color theme, it was perfect to add some vibrant yellow color to it.
I love love love the light bulb die! It is so cute and can be used in so many different crafty themes. I used the "Vintage Stitched Label" Die Set in white and another in black for light bulb background. Adhered bright yellow half beads on each end of the label. For the bulb, I used a color swatch paper from paint color swatches you find at paint stores. for the bottom of the bulb pieces, painted the pieces silver with a sharpie marker. Bright Yellow Ribbon was used to embellish and to be used as a bookmark as well.

The banner from the "Vintage Stitched Label" Die Set and sentiment stamped in black Ranger ink.

      Same technique was done as the banner from above.

Count Your Blessings Frame...

Good Morning All and Happy Wednesday! I truly hope all of you are enjoying all the crafty inspiration that My Creative Time and Design Team Members are showcasing all week. Before the huge April  Stamp and Dies Release on Friday. For today, some of us Design Team members, will be showcasing "Life Is Good" Stamp Set. Along, with "Stitched Mini Frame" and "Stitched Capture Frame and Arrow Dies". For my project today, I chose to use "Life Is Good" Stamp Set and "Stitched Capture Frame" Die. Here are shots of my 4x6 decor frame:

This week's tradegy in the Boston Marathon was a Huge Inspiration for my project.
I used Stickles in different colors to add dimension and shimmer to the die cuts.

I love this Sentiment! It can be used in so many different projects. Especially, for gifts or cards when giving to a loved one or dear friend.

If you have not purchased any of My Creative Time Dies before, Let me tell you, that the stitching around the dies is so detailed that makes the cut stand out even more. If you have purchased dies from My Creative Time you will definately agree with me. 
Well, that is it for now. I hope you all liked my project for today. Don't forget to stop by My Creative Time to view more inspirational and great projects from the rest of the DT.

Create a project of your choice using any 3 of the colors. If you really want to challenge yourself you are welcome to create with all 6 colors.
