MCT Manly Monday ~ celebrate u!


Happy Monday to U!  Today is Manly Monday over at My Creative Time!  Sometimes I have trouble creating masculine cards, so I'm always happy when I'm on the schedule for Manly Monday.  It forces me to do it :)
Now I have to admit that I had this great card planned in my head...and then I started to create it...then the crickets started chirping.  I put it all together and was NOT happy with it...boring and flat.


I just stared at it I knew it needed texture but embossing folders were out of the question since I had it all glued together.  You just can't start adding bows, buttons, and sequins to a "man" card :) 
 Then it hit me...GLOSSY ACCENTS!  It's amazing how little dots of glossy accents brought this card to life.  
If you look closely you can see where I added the slash embossing between the "u" and the footballs.  I added a "U" die to complete the "celebrate U" sentiment.

MCT What a Treat Wednesday ~ witchy poo!



Hi, today is What a Treat Wednesday over at My Creative Time!  I have a project using the new 
Mini Lollipop Holder to share with you today.  This is the cutest size, perfect if you need to make a lot of treats!


First thing I did was to heat emboss the witch, then I ink blended over the cooled heat embossed image.  I started with the lightest color mustard and ended with sapphire.  I love to ink blending!

MCT October Release Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ christmas shaker!


Hi today is day 1 of My Creative Time October Release Sneak Peeks!  
I had a lot of fun playing with Fun Stitched Ornaments & More.  There are 3 different ornaments with stamps to coordinate! 


To create the outline of the ornament, I used a circle die to cut out the center of the ornament.  
The actual die for the circle ornament is solid.  Don't you just love the wispy evergreens!  
I think they are so pretty!
