MCT Manly Monday ~ saw it was your birthday!




Hello, it's Manly Monday over at My Creative Time, so I have a fun "manly" card to share with you!


I used copic markers to color in the fun tool images and then added some Nuvo Drops for more interest.  For the banner I cut a small strip then used the edge of a die for the zig zag edge...easy peasy!

MCT September Release Sneak Peek Day 2 ~ just for you!


Hello paper peeps, today is day 2 of My Creative Time's September Release and I've got a few projects to share with you!  We are showcasing the Cute Gift Tag Die, Cute Stocking Tag Die, Cute Santa Hat Tag Die, and Mini Christmas Greetings stamp set. The Mini Christmas Greetings just happens to be this month's "freebie" set and coordinates perfectly with all the these new tag dies.

I have to apologize again for my photos, my good camera is still on the "fritz" and I've been using my iPhone. I haven't been happy with the results :(


These tag dies can be used by themselves as a tag, attached to a card, or by cutting the image off the tag portion and adding to a card (see the birthday card).

MCT September Release Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ christmas wishes!


Welcome to day one of My Creative Time's September Release Sneak Peeks! Even though this month we have only two days of sneaks, don't think that we don't have a lot to share with you! Today I get to show you Pocketful of Holidays and Pocketful of Holiday Sentiments set. This set covers Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Oh and there's a fun pocket stamp and die included! If you look closely you will see the elf is actually a witch!


Do you have tons of pattern paper pads that you'll never use for scrapbooking? Mainly because the papers looks dated (yes just like fashion) or you don't scrapbook anymore. Well I certainly do! I found this pad of pattern cardstock that I thought would be perfect for boxes...and they were!

MCT Tag It Tuesday ~ shower with love!

***Disclaimer*** I've been using my iPhone to take pic's since my big camera died :(


Hi, happy Tuesday to you!  Yep you get to see me two days in a row and it's not release week!  :)  Today is Tag It Tuesday at My Creative Time but because I needed to make a card for a friend's shower I decided to make a card with a tag on it. 


It's really hard to see in the picture but I stamped a grid background with VersaMark Ink on the yellow panel.  I also stamped hearts with VersaMark Ink on the green banner.  
For the tag I stamped the umbrella with Distress Ink for a "not line watercolor" on watercolor paper. and colored it with Distress Inks.  Once it was dry I stamped the sentiment in VersaFine ink several times with a Misti to get a real crisp look.

MCT Made In Minutes ~ wicked halloween!


Howdy, today is Made In Minutes at My Creative Time!  I wasn't on the schedule for today but did a fill in for our Miss Nikki who has had to evacuate her home with her fur babies due to Hurricane Irma.  So I really had to due this card in minutes :)  Thanks to this fun stencil that came in My Creative Time's first monthly kit it was a breeze!

For the panel I ink blended a few colors of Distress Ink, then die cut the rectangle.  After die cutting the broom (3 layers) I added glossy accents to the handle and thin hemp.  An embossed banner and this baby is done!

MCT 3-D Wednesday ~ spooky & creepy!




Hi, happy September, today is 3-D Wednesday over at My Creative Time!  For today's project I made a 3-D card which was super easy and still fits in an A2 size envelope.


To create this card I first cut the base 10.25 x 4.25, then I scored it starting from the left (long side horizontal) at 1/2", 4 1/2", 5", 9  1/4".  Next I choose a square die to cut the window of one of the large scored area.  This will become the front of your project.

For the inside of the card I cut a 4.25 x 4.25 white square and ink blended the background for a creepy sunset.  Once I heat set it I stamped the tree and the sentiment.  The cute vampire and mummy were stamped then colored with copic markers.

After everything was dry I attached the background and creepers to the box card and glued the box shut.

MCT Thoughtful Thursday ~ my thoughts are with you!


Hello, today is Thoughtful Thursday at My Creative Time.  I created a card that none of us really like to create...a sympathy card.  Like masculine cards, sympathy card can be difficult to do.  I really try to not make them to ornate.



For the background I stamped first with one color, then for the next color I went slightly over the first color and did the same for the next color.  Just as if I were ink blending, but with a stamp.  Using my Misti I was able to stamp the purple flower (I know it looks black) several times to get a crisp, solid flower.

MCT Too Die For ~ hb!


Happy Tuesday to you!  Today is Too Die For over at My Creative Time, this where we show different ways to get more use out of your dies.


To create this card I first die cut the "H and B", then with the Misti I was able to stamp the "happy birthday" in a repeat pattern.  Now had I been thinking ahead, I should have stamped first, then die cut the letters and used the "H and B" on another card...then I would have had two cards completed at the same time.  :)  I use foam tape to pop up the white panel and added some enamel dots.
