MCT February Release Sneak Peek Day 3 ~ birthday bunny!



Welcome to Day 3 of My Creative Time February Release!  Today we get to explore Favorite Bunny Stamp and Die Set.  I want you to know that this sweet bunny isn't just for Easter.  There are eight sentiments and only three are Easter related!  This makes me "hoppy"!  :)


For the background I used VersaMark ink and Wood Grainy Background Stamp.  Memento ink and Copic markers were used for the bunny.


Of course I had to add some wink of stella and glossy accents to ears, belly and tail.  Chalk and white gel pen was added to the cheeks.  As I was putting this card together, I realized that I hadn't used buttons or tried bows for a while because I was all thumbs.  :)

MCT Weird Holiday ~ umbrella day!


Hi, today the girls and I from My Creative Time get to share with you a weird holiday in February, I chose Umbrella Day 2/10!  So happy early Umbrella Day!

Yes, the elephant is light and hard to see, but in person it's better. :)


To create my card I first stamped the "heart raindrops" on the grey paper strip.  On Bristol paper I used the "stamp off" method to create the light lines for the elephant and umbrella.  Next I watercolord them with distress inks.

2/1 mct 3D Wednesday ~ heart bow box!


 
Hello, today is 3D Wednesday over at My Creative Time!  This feature has been updated from What a Treat Wednesday.  We wanted to be able to share with you all types of non card projects, so I hope you enjoy it!

I wanted to make a treat box for Valentine's Day to hold a few kisses.  
The bubblegum box is perfect for that!


I stamped the heart with versamark ink in a random pattern, then assembled the box and added the bow.  It really couldn't be easier than that.

MCT Too Die For Tuesday ~ happy birthday!


Today over at My Creative Time we have a new feature call Too Die For Tuesday!  This is where we will try to show way to get more mileage out of your dies.  Dies are investment and I know I want to get the most out of them, so I assume you do too. :)


I was able to use the negative of the "happy"and the positive "balloon" for the second card.  My vision was for the first card, however I quickly realized that I had all the makings for a second card.  How many cards have I been throwing away! :)


The white card is all inlaid except for the fun star.

MCT January Release Blog Hop ~ thank you!


Welcome to My Creative Time 63rd Release Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Kim's fun blog!  If not then be sure to head over to Emma's wonderful blog for the start!

To create this "stained glass" look, after die cutting the pouch I stamped the flower on the outside with stazon ink.  Next I used copic markers to color the image on the inside of the pouch.  When coloring with copics on clear cardstock, you will always have streaking.  So use it to your advantage and make the streaking purposeful.  

For the label I stamped only part of the sentiment, then added the "thank you" die on the first layer of the small treat label.  I didn't fill the pouch with the Junior Mints for the picture...you wouldn't have been able to see the flower.  :)

MCT January Release Sneak Peek Day 2 ~ party time!


Hi, today is Day 3 of My Creative Time 63rd Release Sneak Peek!  I have a super fun project that would be awesome for any birthday party!  A fun treat holder and the small label die, which just happens to be the freebie are to "die" for!


This took lots of die cutting and some paper piecing, and heat embossing the darling label to create.  If I were doing a bunch of these for a party I would put in a cello bag and add a bow at the top!  

I only used the back layer of the label die, there is also a smaller one with stitching.
