MCT October Release Sneak Peek Day 2 ~ Believing Is Seeing!



Welcome to Day 2 of My Creative Time October Sneak Peeks! 
Didn't you love all the projects from yesterday!  These girls just totally blew me away with their creativity!  

While on Pinterest I found this fun Santa printable.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to embellish it with the holly and berry dies!


The chrome paper is perfect for this picture, however I didn't have any red metallic paper.  So I grabbed my red copic marker and colored it!  Perfect!

I love how easy you can take a beautiful printable and make it your own with a few dies!

MCT October Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ With Sympathy!



Whoop Whoop it's Monday, the first day of October Sneak Peeks for My Creative Time!  I'm so in LOVE with all the new stamps and dies, they are so versatile too!  I really love how creative you can be with them.  Oh and how you can mix them with previously released sets!!!

For today's card I did a some stamping, die cutting, and a bit of watercoloring!


To create the watercolor tree, I first stamped the trunk, then I cut the oval tree top out of scratch paper.  I then layed the negative over the top of the trunk and splattered watered down ink.  I use brick red, a musturd yellow, and moss green.  Once the splatters were dry I remove the "negative scratch paper"  then added a few more splatters and "leaves" at the bottom of the trunk.

Again once dry I added the sentiment and small amount of gold pen.  It's hard to see in the picture, but trust me, in person it really adds alot. :)

MCT Thrifty Thursday ~ Just Hitched!


Happy paper peeps, it's Thrifty Thursday over at My Creative Time!  
So I'm sure you're looking at this cake and wondering what does it have to do with Thrifty Thursday.  I made the cute little banner out of scraps!  However you'd never know it once it was all put together with the cake :)  


I couldn't decide which yellow to use, since I didn't know the color of the sunflowers, so I went with the piece that I could get enough star burst out of.

Sometimes things just end up working out :)

I first attached the burlap to the kraft paper, then ran it through my big shot with the die.



I think it turned out so CUTE and no one would have ever thought it was just scraps!

PKS October Color Challenge ~ Thankful for you!


Hey Hey Hey, it's time again for another Peachy Keen Stamps Color/Photo Challenge!  I LOVE everything about Fall!  Unfortunately it hasn't really even become fall where I live.  Just when I think it's coming, another heat way hits.  However as I write this, I kind of think it may just be on it's way!!!!  Oh one can hope, right?! 

Well since I'm waiting for the leaves to turn and start fall, I came up with this card to get me in the mood!


I used a die to cut out the "windows" for the raccoons to peek through.  Aren't they so darling!  Oh by the way, the raccoon faces are on sale right now too!

MCT Inspire Me ~ Give Thanks!



Hi Everyone, I hope you're week is a happy one so far!  Mine seems to be, no complaints yet :)

Today is Inspire Me at My Creative Time, and that means we are sharing what inspired us to create our project.  I get inspiration from many different places.  Sometimes it's a pillow, a dress, or even landscaping.  More often though, it's a room.  Especially one that's been carefully thought out, 
with many layers and textures.

So as you can see my inspiration for my card is the living room below :)

Thanksgiving Mantel



I almost think I should have saved this card for Thrifty Thursday since I made it with scraps! :)

Tag ~ Special Deliver!


Hi paper peeps, I have a quick post to share with you today!  I've been having fun with my copic markers this past week, trying different techniques.  

This little peanut is just ADORABLE, and I think I've made even cuter with subtle polka dots. :)  


A little glossy accents to his eyes and bow tie finish him up.  Oh my goodness, I just realized that I never added his pink cheeks :(  Oh well, I've already given him away...

Happy Monday!  It's Face Day over at Peachy Keen Stamps!  I'm excited to share with you a fun and spooky card using Make a Monster Faces.


The skeleton face is from Poseable Skeleton and sentiment from Halloween Sentiment and Label.  Don't you love the purple eye shadow on the skeleton!


Almost no "peachy" face is complete without an Action Wobble...so I had to add one!  :)

MCT Scrapping The Little Things ~ Friends!


Hey Crafty Friends!  Well I thought with the start of October meant that fall was here...I was so wrong!!!  California has had another heat wave...will this summer ever end???  Which brings me to 
today's feature, Scrapping The Little Things at My Creative Time!  Since I'm SO ready for fall, I decided to create PL style cards with fall colors.  We are also using a sketch for our layouts.  


As you can see the sketch appears to be for a card, but don't let that stop you from turning it into a layout.  I used it to create one of my PL cards.  


I stamped the flower image with a pale gray ink, then colored them with copic markers.  The pale outline gives it an almost watercolor effect.  I added some glossy accents to the center of the flowers.


I love using papers that appear to have layers to my advantage.  All I needed to do is add some hearts, a banner, and a bit more glossy accents.
