MCT ~ Inspire Me Tuesday

Happy Tuesday crafty friends! Today is "Inspire Me Tuesday" over at My Creative Time. This is when Emma  and the design team create a project using any inspiration piece. Our inspiration can come from anywhere. My inspiration came from my pantry and the last release! LOVED that release! My LOVE for olives green, black, stuffed with just about anything or my favorite one is in a martini glass! LOL!
Any hoo, I thought I would play with some older dies to see what I could do too use that AWESOME sentiment! Well low and behold if Miss Emma doesn't have the PERFECT circle dies. So I took the "Scallop & Stitched Circle", die cut that in green, then placed the circle from the "Build A Banner Kit" and die cut that circle out. Then just placed some red card stock behind the green and voila ~ OLIVES! What do you think?? Now for my toothpick holder I used the "Stitched 4x6 Journal Dies" , the little slash piece. I will link all my materials used below the picture.

Materials Used:
"Some Day's Simply Require..." (LOVE the name of this stamp set!)
Paper ~ PTI
Ink ~ Archival
Ribbon ~ PTI
That is it for me today! Make sure you see what inspired all the other super talented ladies! Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
