I used white Papertrey Ink cardstock to die cut the carton.  After I made all the folds and die cut the shamrock, I watercolored the rainbow.  Yep, that's right another watercolor project...lol!

MCT February Sneak Peeks Day 3 ~ hello!



It's Day 3 of My Creative Time's February Release Sneak Peek!  Well as you can see a lot of us on the design team have been in a watercolor mood this release ;)  I hope you're not too tired of them since I have another one for you today!  lol!

My card I'm sharing with you today is made with the new Hello Frame Die!  This die fits perfectly with the 3x4 Journal Die, which is what I used to watercolor the background.


I cut two Stitched Rectangle Frame Dies in small and medium.  The small one is with vellum, then I used an embossing folder for more texture.  I stamped the sun, then watercolored it with a little ink .

MCT February Sneak Peeks Day 1 ~ hey there!


Happy Monday to you!  
Yippee, I'm having a great morning so far...it's a day off work for President's Day and it's
 My Creative Time's 40th release!  Can you believe that Miss Emma has had 
40 releases!!!  Crazy!  Right?!  This release is filled with cute and darling 
images and sentiments.  Oh and a special "treat" you get to see later in the week :)

So today is Day 1 of February's Sneak Peeks.  There will be four days of sneaks and we'll end the week with a blog hop and then the SHOPPING WILL BEGIN!!!  :)  I hope you enjoy!

Well, I better get on with my cards so you can see what the other gals have created!

Aren't these little chicks ADORABLE!!!!  I created the sky background with watercolor paper and distress ink.  The little chicks are colored with copic markers, with a bit of chalk on their cheeks.


For my second card, I use SU ink to watercolor after I heat embossed the sentiment.  Since I was doing a quick wash of color without soaking the paper, I was able to use PTI paper.  Once it was dry I sprinkled gold shimmer spray and sequins.

MCT Trending Now ~ birthday wishes!


Hello friends!  I'm sorry I haven't been around this week, just been busy with the everyday things of life.  Oh I had been working on some watercolor cards that I'll share soon.  :)

Over at My Creative Time it's Trending Now!  Today it's all about the BIG BOLD STRIPES, DOTS, and CHEVRONS!  They are so HOT right now and I LOVE THEM!!!  I really wanted my card to bright, bold, yet feminine.  


It's somewhat hard to see in the picture, but the yellow dots are much brighter in person.  The first thing I did was white heat emboss the flowers on watercolor paper.  Then I used distress ink to watercolor the flowers.  After they were dry I fussy cut them, added wink of stella and glossy accents.  I love adding the glossy accents to the petals and leaves to look like morning dew.

For the frame, stamped the bold black chevrons,  Now I wish I had made them closer together or added the dotted chevron in between.  Funny I was going back and forth of whether to add it or not, but was so afraid  I would mess it up, that I left it off.  No guts, no glory...lol!

MCT Designers Challenge ~ happy birthday!


Happy Thursday and welcome to My Creative Time's Designer Challenge!  This is a great challenge since you get to pick the challenge.  That's right you can choose to use the photo for inspiration, the colors, or the sketch.  Of you can use all three, totally your choice!


For my project I choose to use all three!  the colors were so fun and the party theme with a robot was just perfect for MCT's newest set Best Bots Forever Stamp Set!


On the background I used a stencil to lightly ink the bubbles then highlighted with Wink of Stella.  I had fun creating all the patterns on the paper with stamps...that's right I only used solids.  Also I didn't have the right shade of hemp, so I quickly colored my white hemp with a copic marker.  This was a new trick for me and wasn't sure it was going to work...but it did :)

MCT What a Treat ~ happy valentine's day!



Good morning, it's Wednesday, that means it's "What A Treat" Wednesday!  Some of us girls on the design team at My Creative Time are creating treats and/or treat packaging.  

I had some left over candy canes and white chocolate from Christmas and didn't want it to go to waste...while on Pinterest last week I found a smaller version of these.  I thought they'd be a great way to use my goodies, and give something to my coworkers.


For the tag I stamped red on red for a subtle look (it shows up more in person), then quickly added the other items.

Of course after I had already made the heart suckers, I thought of a different look.  Adding the stick to the other side to create an arrow!  Oh that would have been way cuter!  Oh well maybe next year :)

MCT Made In Minutes ~ love!



Hellooo :), today is Made in Minutes over at My Creative Time and I have two quick projects to share with you! 

When I was putting away Christmas decor I realized that my "noel" votive holders could be "love" by simply adding a "v".  So that's what I did...well sort of :)


I quickly cut two "Heart 2 Heart" dies, one in silver glitter and one in red glitter.  Then added a bit of a non permanent adhesive.  It's sort of a "v", right!



Then for my 2nd project I die cut the 3 hearts in red glitter, pink glitter and gold paper.  I then randomly sewed them together to make a banner.

Scrap glitter paper

Have a great week!
