Card ~ Just A Note!


 Yippee, it's Friday!  I'm so happy it finally got here :)  I have a quick card to share with you today.


I stamped the flowers with PKS stamps, and used MCT dies to cut the felt flowers.  After adding some chunky glitter to the paper flowers, I attached them to the felt flowers.


To get that "opal" effect on the butterfly, I added stickles to the wings then when almost dry I added some glossy accents over it.

Thinking Of You!


Happy Wednesday, hope you're having a great week so far!  Today I have a really quick card to share with you.  We've had a super strange winter/spring this year, so I guess I've been really wanting it to be spring and stay spring.  In the SF Bay Area, we just aren't used to 80 degree weather and then the next day hailing peas!  I think that's why I was so drawn to a "springy" card!


I'm going to try to explain how I made the pink layer.  I had two small squares of the pink paper, not big enough for MCT tag die.  On the lower pink piece I ran it through my big shot three times using the side of my journaling die.  Then for the top pink piece I ran it through two on paralleling sides, then used my MCT stitched curly die to create the top knot.  Only you and I know that the pink piece isn't one complete piece. :)


I stamped the PKS watering can on vellum with stazon ink, then carefully cut it out,  and did the same thing for the flowers after coloring with copic markers.  Of course no card of mine would be complete without a bit bling!

Hello, welcome to day 3 of Peachy Keen Stamp April Release Sneak Peek!  Haven't you loved what's been sneaked by all the girls so far, I know I have!


Between the sentiment and the drink, they were screamin' for a wobble...so I had to do!  :)
Oh and those eyes!  I just LOVE those eyes!!!!  
I used the die cut girl for KaDoodle Bug, and just made a few alterations to her.  I just realized that I forgot to add her jewelry :/  now it's too late to do it.  I had planned to add a rhinestone necklace and earrings.  These will be added before I give it to someone, however for now you'll just have to imagine that it looks soooo cute!  lol!

MCT Sketch Challenge ~ Celebrate!




Welcome to My Creative Time's Sketch Challenge!  My post is going to be really quick so you have time to see what every one on the design team made.




As you can see I turned the sketch for my card.  I used the rosettes that were left over from my daughters wedding.  I should have saved them for a Thrifty Thursday post but I simply couldn't wait once this was in my melon!  lol!
