MCT Scrapping The Little Things ~ epcot!



Hello friends, today is Scrapping The Little Things over at My Creative Time.
So that means I get to share a wee bit of my recent vacation to Florida.  One of our stops was a day at Epcot!  This was our first time to Florida, so were not used to the weather...at all!  :)

Even with the heat we still had a good time and got to enjoy all the fun/food Epcot had to offer.


It's so hard to capture all this park has to offer when it come to ALL the beautiful flowers and plants.

I created my title card with some quick stamping and copic marker coloring.  Since these images are small the coloring took hardly any time at all...and coloring is so relaxing too!

MCT Tag It Tuesday ~ happy birthday!


Hi, I have a cute little tag to share with you since today is Tag It Tuesday over at My Creative Time.  I  love having tags on hand for different occasions.  This way they can easily be added to a card base or hang from a gift bag for quick wrap.  :)


To create the sentiment banner, I used the banner die from Chocolate Greetings.  By partially cutting the paper, then turning the die and letting the already cut portion hang off the platform, then cutting the flat end again.

MCT July Release Blog Hop ~ my thoughts are with you!


Hey Hey Hey you made it to Friday...let the hopping and shopping begin!!!  That's right 
My Creative Time July Release is officially on sale, so I will totally understand if shop first then hop :)

If you're ready to hop then you should have arrived here from the talented Miss Kim.  Or if you just happened to pop in to see me, you will want to head over to our fearless leader Miss Emma!


For my card I used the new set My Thoughts Are With You.  I decided not to use a sentiment yet, so  I can stamp one inside when I'm ready to use it.  I thought this card could be used for several occasions.


To color the images, I used distress inks and a paint brush.  After it was completely dry, 
I added wink of stella, stickles, and glossy accents.

MCT July Release Sneak Peek Day 4 ~ to my friend!






Wow, today is already Day 4 of My Creative Time's July Release Sneak Peeks!  This week has gone by so fast...but that's a good thing, so the shopping can begin sooner!

Today I get to share with you "Hey There Little Lady" stamp and die set!  This set is just darling!! 


To create this sweet little tag, I first die cut the tag then embossed the lower portion with an embossing folder.  Then quickly stamped the images and sentiment.  Since the images are tiny, it didn't take long to color them with copic markers.  :)  I also added a little bit of copic marker in blue to give a hint of sky.

MCT July Release Sneak Peek Day 2 ~ love!





Hi, welcome to day 2 of  My Creative Time Time July Release Sneak Peek!  Wasn't yesterday's "sneaks" fun!!!  I am so in love with the new Stitched Sunburst Dies that I had to use it again today.  

Today I get to share with you the jar set. there are so many possibilities with the new set.  I made this card for a coworker for her bridal shower.  When you first see it you might think it's only for sympathy cards.  However I'm here to show you that it's for way more than that.  :)


I'm not sure why the colors aren't accurate, it's actually navy not black.  It's so much prettier in person.  :)


I used the Tag Layer Dies and Tag Dies to create this card, but if you know me then you know that I will change up the dies.  That's exactly what I did with the Tag Layer die.  With some creative cutting, I was able to make it thinner and shorter that the actual die is.  This created more background die to show.

MCT Inspire Me Wednesday ~ thinking of you always!



Good morning and happy Wednesday!  Today is Inspire Me Wednesday over at My Creative Time.  This feature is about taking the everyday things around us and how they are able to inspire creativity.  My project today wasn't inspired by any one thing but a place, Florida.


Since Emma has revised some of her favorite sets which includes some new dies.  It has reminded me of what sets I have and haven't used in a while, like the "all around" sets.  I mixed the newly revised "All Around III" with "Already Missing You" set.  I think is works perfectly together!

I colored the flower and flaming with copic markers then added a little wink of stella to the flower.

MCT Designer Challenge ~ happy birthday!



Hi crafty friends!  You probably have been wondering where I've been...or not.  :)  Well, I went on an extended vacation.  We started our vacation in Nashville for my daughter's college graduation.  Then we were off for Disney World, Bahamas, and Savannah!  I loved every minute of it (I'll post pic's later)

Well enough of me, lets get to the project at hand :)  Today is Photo/Color/Sketch Challenge over at My Creative Time!  This is the best challenge since you get to pick what you want to do.  
Whether it be the photo, color, sketch or all three, it's YOUR CHOICE!



I decided to use some of the colors and the sketch for my card.  I also used the Newly Revised My Little Firecracker set.  Aren't those teeny tiny chrome stars DARLING, they are part of the revised set!

MCT June Release Sneak Peeks Day 4 ~ a little something!


Well today is Day 4 of My Creative Time! June Release!  Hasn't it been a fun and adorable release!  All the projects have been FABULOUS!!!!
Today we are featuring the most darling "baby" stamps and dies! 


I stamped the sweet baby animals with a "masking" technique.  Once they were stamped I colored them with copic markers.  Oh I loove my copics!  After they were colored, I added chalk for cheeks and glossy accents to there eyes.  I just love those fun button dies too!!!  I stamped a cute sentiment inside, however I didn't get a picture of it, and I've already given this card away.  I had a baby shower two days after the anniversary party.  This release came at the best time for me!
