MCT July Release Blog Hop ~ all better!


Welcome to My Creative Time July Release Blog Hop!  Since I want you to have time to comment on all the blogs (that way you can have more chances to win) I'm going to keep this short!  

You should have arrived here from the creative Miss Kim, if not be sure to head over to our wonderful "boss" Miss Emma for the start!


This bandage holder was so quick to create!  I simply die cut the envelope, bandage and hearts with wool felt.  You do have to use wool felt, regular craft store felt will not work with dies.  Then adhered with fabric glue.  I still might add some DMC floss stitching for "cuteness"!

MCT What a Treat Wednesday ~ it's a bridal shower!



Good morning today is What a Treat Wednesday over at My Creative Time and I have a quick project to share with you today that doesn't look quick and makes the receivers ooh and awe over. :)  First I have to give you the background story...you may remember that we had a flood in our home on Christmas Eve which took out almost our whole house.  It took us 4 months to complete and left our kitchen looking really shabby after everything else was brand new.  So I decided to revamp/update the kitchen with new appliances, however I also planned to give my friend's daughter a bridal shower.  Yes, I'm a glutton for punishment :)  I really didn't plan this right...all I have is a cook top!  How can I give a shower without an oven or microwave?  Well easy...an Ice Cream Bar and Rice Crispy Treats for a favor.  The treats took about an hour to make 25 or so, I was happy with that!  Now how was I going to package them?  Easy with MCT stamps and Dies.


After die cutting the labels I took 4 acrylic blocks and positioned the stamps how I wanted them for each color.  So for blue I did the "k&e", and so on for each color.  I only had to stamp each label 4 times, once for each color.  I did have to spend some time getting the stamps positioned so the flower centers were place correctly, however just once.  To do all 25, including die cutting was about 1 1/2 hours.  I think that's really quick.


I added some MCT rosettes to the flower arrangements.

MCT Manly Monday ~ wish big!


Howdy happy Monday to you!  Today is Manly Monday over at My Creative Time.  I never have enough of these so I'm always happy when I'm assigned to create one :)

As funny as this might sound, this card was inspired by my kitchen redo.  I have been stripping paint off my cabinet doors (30 of them) so I can repaint them (they were chipping and peeling).  As the paint was being stripped off I was left with wood grain doors, kind of like the "wood" rectangle.  


To create the "wood" box I taped off with post it tape and inked the wood stencil, then with a darker brown distress ink I add a bit of shading.  For the Sentiment Label die, I made it longer to fit my die cut sentiment.

MCT Do Over ~ newlyweds!



Hello, today is "Do Over" at My Creative Time.  Now I'm sure you think a "do over" means you got it wrong the first time, no true.  To me a "do over" gives me chance to do something similar but with a different technique.  That's what I did today!

The first card I made last December and I LOVED it, however I've been practicing with different techniques of distress inks and blending on different papers.  


So I decided to heat emboss the dots and blend distress inks instead of the dry embossing like the card above.  I also used  Tim Holtz Specialty Paper which is very smooth which makes blending a breeze,  For the heart after I heat embossed it, I smooshed the water color for a marble look.

MCT June Release Blog Hop ~ hi!


Well we finally made it the hop!  Welcome to My Creative Time June Release Blog Hop, you should have arrived here from the talented Miss Kim.  If you just popped in to see me, then be sure to head to the start at Miss Emma (our fearless leader).  


First I dry embossed the Rectangular die on my card base.  Then after I heat embossed the sentiment on the label, I scored it instead of cutting it off at the top.  Then I folded it over the card, so the back a bit of interest.
