My Creative Time 98th Edition Release Blog Hop and Sale!!

Welcome this month's blog hop for the 98th Edition Release from My Creative Time!!  Even though this is a smaller release, it will have you covered for Valentines Day and beyond! Stay tuned to the end of this post for details on the Freebie and Sale as well as the full hop lineup!!

For my project today, I've used the Freebie Die for this month! It's the Fun Sized Heart Bow Die and it is adorable!! I've also made a shaker card, which I rarely do!!

I used and modified one die cut from the recently released Jar Treat Die to create a shaker.

This was very easy and I'll show you how!  Die cut the stitched layer of the jar, twice. Simply cut around the inside of one of the die cuts to create a frame. It doesn't matter that the top is open as this will have foam tape to seal it off. 

It can also be ugly under there as the "fabric" topper of the jar will cover it :)! On the second die cut (the one not cut up), I inked some light blue ink around the edges as well as adhered some die cut hearts directly on it. The sequins will shake around but the hearts will remain in place. I like this because there will always be something floating in the jar.

After the sequins were in place, I added the frame portion, with the acetate attached, one top. I pressed everything together to make sure it was sealed well.

The Fun Sized Heart Bow Die is actually a great size to decorate the jar!  I just went with a simple white bow to really contract against the pink jar topper.  I stamped a sentiment from the Jar Treat Sentiments onto a white circle cut using one of the smaller dies from the Bunch of Fun Circles Die Set.

I made a 4X4 inch card and embossed the front of it using a polka dot embossing folder. I adhered the jar and sentiment to the card base with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. And that's the finished card!!

There are two other sizes of Heart Bow Dies in this release and they are all just as sweet!!
