MCT December Release Blog Hop ~ happy birthday!


Well we made it to Friday and My Creative Time December Release Blog Hop! I hope you enjoyed this week's sneaky peeks! Lets get to the hop so the shopping can begin.
You should have arrived here from Kim's fun blog! If you didn't, be sure to head over to the start at Emma's fabbie blog...this way you don't miss a thing!

I created a "spinner" card today, basically the balloon image is suspended with thread within the window.  If you spin the balloon then shut the card when the recipient opens it the balloon will spin.  It just adds to the fun!  :)


To create the clouds, I die cut the cloud edge on clear cardstock and used it as a stencil.  Just another way to get more mileage out of your dies.

MCT December Release Sneak Peek Day 4 ~ fill my heart!


Only one more day before the shopping begins for My Creative Time's December Release!  Today we are sharing with you Heart Love Note Dies. 
 I used one of the dies to create a see through shaker card.  That's right there is a window through the front of the card and the sentiment is stamped on the interior of the card base.


To allow enough room for the beads I doubled up the craft foam.


You can see how I finished the inside of the card with the window.

MCT December Release Sneak Peek Day 3 ~ valentine greetings!


Howdy it's day 3 of My Creative Time December Release Sneak Peek!  Today I get to share with you Chalkboard Valentines stamp and die set!  I think you're going love these!

For my card, I wanted to make a "gate opening" card.  So I used the "label" die included in the set to create a "flap" for the opening.


After I attached the flowers, I used wink of stella and glossy accents for the centers.  Also I corner chomped the corners with the 1/8th size (it's hard to see).  
Add a few sequins and it's done...easy peasy.  

You can see I used one of the sentiments for the inside of the card.  Are you wondering why I added a white die cut square inside my card?  It's because I like white on white...well yes and no.  It's really because I stamped the sentiment, then smeared it.  ARG!!!  I hate when that happens!  
So I die cut a rectangle and stamped again.  Mistakes can usually be fixed :)

MCT December Release Sneak Peek Day 2 ~ very special!


It's Day 2 of My Creative Time December Release Sneak Peek! Today I'm going to share with you "Love is in the Air" stamp and die set! I Looove this set of sentiments and this fun "heart air balloon" stamp!


This card was simple and quick to complete...my favorite!  Really not much to explain here...however I wanted the gold hearts to match the balloon embossing so I created my own gold glitter paper.  I used VersaMark ink on a scrap paper then heat embossed the glitter embossing powder.  Once it was cool I die cut the hearts.  After I attached them to my card, I added glossy accents for an "embellished" look.

MCT Trending Now: Let It Snow ~ joy!



Hi!  It's Trending Now over at My Creative Time, and today's theme is "Let It Snow"! 
 I chose to make festive winter card.


To create the tag background I ink blended on a white tag, then added drops of water and gold shimmer for interest.  On the wood snowflake I colored it with Wink of Stella for more shimmer.

Today I have a sweet card to share with you!


This card looks more time consuming that it is.  I first die cut the background with the circles, then stamped the birdies with Memento Ink and colored with copic markers.  Next I die cut the birds, hat, and branch, then assembled.  For the banner I heat embossed the sentiment.  Super quick and fun card!

MCT 5 Days of Christmas ~ counting the days!


GOOD MORNING my friends! Today is Day 2 of My Creative Time 5 Days of Christmas. This week my Design Team Sisters at My Creative Time are working on a treat this week for our “5 Day s of Christmas”. You will see tons of AMAZING ideas from tags, treats, cards, gift card holders, etc.... to get your holidays off to a “crafty” good start! We all hope you enjoy everything you will see this week!   

Today we are sharing "treat holders"!  My treat holder is actually an Advent Calendar.  (sorry about my pictures today. I had a hard time photographing the glitter paper).



This may seem time consuming, however it really isn't.  Just pick out 4 coordinating 12x12 papers (thicker cardstock works best).  Oh a little bit of glitter paper too!  Then die cut and glue away...


Inside the matchbook a Ghiradelli Chocolate Squares is attached with a glue dot.
