MCT August Release Blog Hop ~ pumpkin spice!


It's Blog Hop Time!  Welcome to My Creative Time August Release Blog Hop!  Since we have a long line up I'm going to get right to it...
You should have arrived here from Miss Kim,  if not head over to the start at Miss Emma!


To create my card I did masking and watercoloring using Distress Inks.  On the inside of my card I thought it would be fun to add a gift card holder and fill it with an SB card.  I know not an original gift but who doesn't know when SB pumpkin season starts!

MCT August Sneak Peek Day 4 ~ spooky!


Happy Day 4 of My Creative Time August Sneak Peeks!  Haven't all the projects for the Design Team been wonderFALL!  :)  Just think you only have one more day before you can purchase any of these for yourself.

Today I get to share with you Spooky Time stamp and die set.  I wanted to make the coffin die into a card.  So I folded my cardstock in half and placed the die so the fold was inside the die at the top.  This way the die wouldn't cut the top leaving the fold intact.


For the tree I heat embossed clear powder using VersaMark ink.  Also on the hat I did a few layers of heat embossing with clear powder.  For the candle flame in the skull, I used copic marker and then a bit of glossy accents.

MCT August Release Sneak Peek Day 3 ~ eek!


Well we are half way through My Creative Time August Release Sneak Peeks, yep so today is day 3!  I really hope you've enjoyed the week so far!  I'm not sure if I'm suppose to tell you this, some of the stamps used for my card is part of the "freebie" set (details will follow on Friday)!  How cool is that!


So to create this card, I first used a grey Distress Paint with a linen stamp.  Once it was dry, a watercolored the background, and again let dry.  Then I ink blended to create more depth.  Lastly I stamped the witch.  On the black cardstock I heat embossed the "halloween 31" in what I thought was Ultra Fine White, however it must of been clear.  I was really disappointed at first, but then I realized that I liked the tone on tone look.  So win win!  I used VersaMark ink for the "eek" words for more tone on tone look.

MCT August Release Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ candy corn kisses!


Hi, today is the start of My Creative Time August Release!  Fall is here so I hope you're ready for a change of seasons with some AWESOME stamps and dies!  I'm so excited I get to share with you Candy Corn Kisses stamp and die set.  Well all I can say is CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!  And I'm glad they aren't real because I can never stop eating them once I start.  :)


For my card, I decided to do "no line" watercoloring, this is one of my favorite techniques.  To accomplish this look, simply stamp in a light color on scratch paper then (2nd generation stamping) stamp on your paper you want for your project.  Then watercolor with Tim Holtz Distress ink.

MCT Tag It Tuesday ~ party time!



Hello, today is Tag It Tuesday at My Creative Time.  First off I want to say I'm sorry for the poor quality of my photos today,  I had my card made and realized as we were leaving for a party that I hadn't taken my photo and quickly used my iphone to take the picture. :/


To make this tag I heat embossed my images and then watercolored the candles.  Once it was dry I added the stickles and glossy accents to the flames.  Super easy!

MCT Trending Now: Mixed Media ~ happy birthday!


Hello, today is Trending Now at My Creative Time, the theme for today is mixed media!  Now I'm sure when you hear mixed media, you're probably thinking dark and masculine.  I'm here to say it doesn't always have to be that.  :)


I created this sweet birthday card by first heat embossing white circles, then watercoloring the background.  For the elephant, I stamped it using the "stamp off" technique, then watercolored it.  Lastly I added the "happy birthday" banner and the #1.

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 July Release Sneak Peek Day 4 ~ color my world!


Hey Hey Hey only one more day before you purchase this new release!  That's right tomorrow you can order the whole My Creative Time release!  But before you can I want to share with you "Paint the Town" stamp and die set, this set is both fun and sophisticated!  


First I heat embossed the "skyline" in white, then water colored the rainbow sky.  Lastly I tied the black hemp around the top before adhering to the card base.  I tried to keep my cards this week clean and simple, which if you know me is sometimes harder for me.  I'm an over the top kind of girl for most things in my life :)
