MCT Birthday Palooza


It's Birthday Palooza with My Creative Time!  I love this day, because it seems like I'm ALWAYS making birthday cards!  This one is for a boy in my class whose birthday is this week.  I had the idea to make a scene with a birthday whale!  It took a lot of different MCT sets:  the whale and the sentiment are from Get Whale Soon, the party hat is from Tweet Me and Fun Tweet Me Dies, the hook is from You're a Great Catch, and the cupcake is from Mixed Just for You.  I made the circle border and the shape of the card itself with some of the More Stitched Circle Dies.  A little Tim Holtz Distress Ink made the perfect "sea" background!

Birthday Slider Card




I pulled out an older die set to make this card:  the Papertrey Ink Movers & Shakers:  Sliders.  I haven't made an interactive card in a while, and they are always so fun for the recipient!    I made the green base for the slider with one of My Creative Time's MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies and then decorated it with a cupcake from MCT's Celebration Tags and butterflies from MCT's Mini Butterfly Dies.


When you pull the tab, you see the sentiment!  All of the stamps I used are from PTI's Movers & Shakers Sentiments.

MCT Tag It Tuesday


It's Tag It Tuesday with My Creative Time!  I'm just loving the new Celebration Tags set, and I had to pull it out again today!  This time I made a tag with it, but I again made a "smooshed" rainbow watercolor background, because I just love how it makes that cupcake pop! I used every single one of the dies in the set, along with the stamped sprinkles and one of the sentiments.  This really is a great set for making a quick and adorable birthday tag!

I am so excited for this new set!  It seems like I always need to make a birthday tag, and this set with the adorable cupcake and banner dies, along with all of the coordinating sentiments that fit into the banner, is just too cute!  Now, even though this set includes an adorable shaped tag, today I didn't use it, because I wanted to use the rest of the dies on a card!  I used a smooshing technique to make a fun rainbow watercolor background and then added my adorable little cupcake, complete with heart topper!  The sprinkles stamp is included in the set too, and I heat embossed it with platinum embossing powder.  I love the sentiments that fit perfectly in the banner - this one is just right for my niece!

MCT Just Cards


It's Just Cards Day with My Creative Time, a day to share some fun cards!  I got a little bit inky making this one.  I started by ink blending some Tim Holtz Distress Inks on some Strathmore Bristol Cardstock and then die cut "hello," using the Big Hello die and a few envelopes, using the Signed, Sealed and Delivered set.  To the card base, I added a strip of patterned paper that I trimmed with one of the More Stitched Edges dies.  I think it all came together pretty nicely!

MCT Manly Monday


It's Manly Monday with My Creative Time! For my project today, I made a Valentine.  I tried to give it a little bit of a masculine twist with the colors and the argyle patterned paper, which I trimmed with one of the MCT Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out.  The heart was cut with a die from You + Me, and the sentiment is also from there.  The heart stamps are from A Sloth Holiday.  I die cut the cute little dog with a die from Loyal Friends, and the envelope is from Signed, Sealed and Delivered.

Yay! It's Your Birthday!


I have another birthday card made with a Cricut cut for you today!  This one is from Animal Antics.  I love this little turtle on a skateboard!  I added a birthday cake made with the My Creative Time Baby Cake Die.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Stylish Sentiments:  Birthday.  I think this will be the perfect card for one of my third grade boys!
