MCT Whatever Wednesday ~ celebrate!


Hello crafty friends!  Today is Whatever Wednesday at My Creative Time and it's a perfect time to try different techniques.  I'm not even sure what to call this technique, maybe dimensional die cutting.  


On the panel I stamped and copic colored the image, then (while holding my breath) I die cut the "celebrate".  Next I cut 1 white and 2 black "celebrate".  I inlaid the the white one into the panel and stacked the black ones on top.  The color one was added to the top.  Be sure you keep all the pieces from the colored one to add to the panel so it shows through.  This is easier than I'm explaining.  If I was to do this again I would of used black for the inlaid piece too.

Good morning and welcome to My Creative Time's 7 Year Anniversary Blog Hop!  I can hardly believe that Miss Emma and been creating her fun and fabulous stamps and dies for that long!  Time flies when you are having fun creating!  :)


I used one of the smaller square dies to create the card and covered it with the scallop square for the panel.  Then it was simply die cutting the cake popping up the "frosting" with foam tap and adding the Nuvo Drops and Glossy Accents.

MCT 7 Year Anniversary Release Sneak Peeks Day 2 ~ wishing you comfort!




Hello, today is day 2 of  My Creative Time's 7 Year Anniversary Sneak Peeks!   Like yesterday we have another fun and unique edge die called Circle Border Die. 
Honestly my pictures aren't doing it justice...
this will be an on going theme this week with my pictures. 

I created the border on the teal panel then attached to my card base, then inlaid with the rust centers.  Of course I don't let anything go to waste so I was able to make another card (see below) with the leftover rust circles.  Then I added the Flower Petal Die cut several times and layered.

MCT 7 Year Anniversary Release Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ thinking of you!




It's day 1of My Creative Time's 7 Year Anniversary Release Sneak Peeks! Today we have a fun and creative new die called Flower Border Die.  I really wanted to keep my card all white with just a touch of yellow.  However I knew that it would look terrible in the pictures so I had to add some color.  It was still difficult to photograph :(  Honestly my pictures aren't doing it justice...this will be an on going theme this week with my pictures.


I added a few Nuvo Drops to the pattern paper strip for added detail.

MCT Manly Monday ~ happy birthday!



Happy Manly Monday to you!  I have a card to share with you that looks clean and simple, however sometimes those take the most time.  :)


My card to day is filled with lots of stamping and masking...and I mean lots!  Once I cut all the masks it went pretty quick.  After all the stamping was done, I colored them nuts, nails, and jar with Copic Markers.  That part was quick.  :)  I couldn't find a color paper to go with the pattern paper so I Copic colored the edge piece.

MCT Throwback Thursday ~ happy bird-day!



Happy Thursday to you, welcome to My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday!  I'm going to share a "tweet" card I made using and older little set, Birthday Buddies.


For the background I used my "cloud stencil"(I made with the cloud edge die) and ink blended VERY lightly with distress ink.  It's so light the camera can barely pick it up, but in person it's perfectly light. :)
Next I die cut the square frame using two square dies taped together.  The images were stamped then colored with copic markers.  I also added details with gel pen, chalk and glossy accents.  I love glossy accents in person, but it never photographs well, especially when I use it on "eyes".
