MCT April Release Blog Hop ~ believe!






Whoop Whoop, it's finally here!!!!  April Release Blog Hop for My Creative Time! 
 I'm going to get right to it :) 

You should have arrived here from the fabulous Miss Kim.....  If not, please head over the Miss Emma's for the start, this way you don't miss a thing!


For this card I created a shaker card with a few twists...  The first twist is I made shrinky dink feathers for inside my shaker.  The second twist is my shaker is a see through window!


It's difficult to see I added wink of stetta to the feathers on the card base.  So in person the feathers have a little sheen to them.  My wink of stella was getting low so I added some water to the tube.  It really thinned it, maybe too much for most projects.  However not for this look, it was the perfect amount of shimmer!

MCT April Release Sneak Peek Day 4 ~ enjoy the little things!



Happy Thursday my paper lovin' friends!  Today is Day 4 of My Creative Time's April Release Sneak Peeks!  How exciting we only have to wait one more day until the Blog Hop and shopping begin!!!  Hasn't this release been fun!  I'm loving the "revamped" hot air balloon...and today we are sharing the "revamped" plane...and just as fun!

I have two projects to share with you today.  This first one is the "freebie" stamp (there are some rules that apply to the "freebie" stamp).  I wanted to created something totally different...


First I painted stripes on canvas (2"x2" canvas), then I stamped the image twice on cardstock.  One I die cut out for the shape, the other I fussy cut the banner and popped it up on the full image.  Lastly I outlined the die cut with gold gel pen.


For my next card I  die cut clear cardstock to create a stencil then inked in several blue distress inks to create the "sky".  I colored the plane and banner with copic markers, and used wink of stella and glossy accents on the plane.  A few gold stars later and voila it was completed!  :)

MCT April Release Sneak Peek Day 2 ~ just because!


Whoop Whoop it's day 2 of My Creative Time's April Release!  Didn't you love those stars and stamps yesterday?  So many possiblilities!

Today we are showing Believe in Your Dreams stamp and die set!  
Oh my this is another homerun!  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

To create this card it required a bit of masking and stamping.  After stamping, I used water color pencils to color the feathers.  When they were dry I added some wink of stella for shimmer.

Then again once the feathers were dry, I placed the masks over the feathers, then splattered the droplets all over.  When I finished the splatters I removed the masks.

MCT Trending Now ~ follow your dreams!



Hello crafty friends, today is "Trending Now" over at My Creative Time!  Have you noticed all the stencils at "M"s or "HL"?  They're every where, but these "babies" aren't the stencils from the eighties!  LOL!  Well did you know that you can take you dies and create your own stencil?  I'm going to try to explain what I did to create this card.


The first thing I did was die cut the three cartoon clouds from a 4 x 6 piece of chipboard, spacing them far apart.  Next I took the negative part and used it as a stencil to create the background.  I randomly used the stencil and versamark ink for the clouds then used clear embossing powder and heat set.  Once it was cool, I used distress ink for the sky.

Before you go out and buy more stencils, take a look at your dies or what dies you want to purchase  to see what you can create.

MCT Scrappping The Little Things ~ happy birthday!


Good Morning crafty friends, today is Scrapping The Little Things over at My Creative Time.  Being on the schedule for "scrapping" is really a blessing...it gets me motivated to get my pages completed.  Mixing Project Life style or pocket pages with My Creative Time stamps and dies makes getting pages completed as easy as 1, 2, 3!!!
My layout is a birthday party for my niece, she turned 40, it's so hard to believe that she's that old.

With Sympathy...



Hello, happy Friday!  
I have a watercolor card to share with you today.  You're not getting tired of water coloring, are you?  I hope not, since I'm having so much fun experimenting with different ways to watercolor!  I know, that sounds wierd since it's a "sympathy" card.  
This card for an artistic friend who recently lost her husband after a long illness.


For this card, I stamped the flower using Tim Holtz Distress Ink, then I used Stampin' Up marker (regular ones) to do the water coloring.  I think that most any water based marker would work.  After everything was dry, I added drops of glossy accents.

MCT Designer Challenge ~ just a note!





Good morning, 
it's time for another Designer Challenge over at My Creative Time!  This really is the best kind of challenge because you get to choose the challenge.  What?  You need me to say that again?  Yes, you get to choose the challenge...you can choose between the colors, the picture, the sketch, or any combination.  See why I  say it's the best kind!




To create my card I first embossed the leafy stamp with clear embossing powder on the oval background.  Once it cooled I water colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink with a yellow.  After it was all dry I die cut the oval.
Then on water color paper I stamped the flowers and leaves and water colored them with Stampin' Up ink pens.  Again once dry, I die cut all of them.  
After I assembled all the pieces, I added wink of stella and glossy accents to the flowers.

MCT Tag It Tuesday ~ happy bird-day!



Happy Tuesday crafty peeps!  Today is Tag It Tuesday over at My Creative Time.  This is a fun feature where we get to create tags.  But you say "hey, that's a card" yep, you're right...but there is a tag on it!  hehehe 
I made this card for a friend of mine...I hope she receives it before she sees it here ;)


I set out to make a round tag, however as I was working it, this is what came out!  Sometimes that's what happens :)  I water colored  some paper then die cut the tag (that helps it not warp as much).
