MCT October Release Sneak Peek ~ holiday hugs!


Howdy, today is Day 2 of My Creative Time October Release Sneak Peeks!  I made a darling 3x3 card and envelope for today's project.  This card is the perfect size for gift giving!


For the background I use Distress Inks and a piece of acetate to create the lines.  Since the gingerbread image is tiny it didn't take much time to color her in :)  A little white gel pen, wink of stella, and glossy accents makes this sweet girl come to life!

I also stamped the image with VersaMark on the envelope to coordinate with the card.

MCT October Release Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ sweet treats!


Good mornin' it's day 1 of My Creative Time October Release Sneak Peeks! Today I get to share with you two projects using two different candy cane dies! I think you're going to love both of these!

My first project is a sweet card using the Stitched Candy Cane Background die which I used on the background panel of my card. I love how subtle it is, though you could water color it for a bold look.



For my second project I used the Sweet Candy Cane die on a tag. The background was stamped in VersaMark Ink using a Misti to make my life easier! :)


I added a bit of Glossy Accents too.

10/11 MCT Whatever Wednesday ~ better together!


Happy Wednesday to y'all!  Today over at My Creative Time it's Whatever Wednesday and it's just that...whatever we want to do!



This card required a lot of masking, ink blending, and coloring...which I'm really into right now. :)
I first stamped the images then used masking paper to cover them, then ink blended the background.
Next I made a stencil using the cloud die out of quilting stencil material.  Easy and fun to use with distress inks.  After the background was complete I colored the images with copic markers.  I always add chalk to cheeks with white gel pen, and glossy accents to eyes.  I think it gives them personality!

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.
