Special Friend Blend


This sweet little card was made for a friend who organized a birthday tea for me.  Don't you just love it when you have the perfect stamps and dies for an occasion?  I used the Papertrey Ink Tea for Two stamp set and dies to make my teapot and the Tea for Two Additions, along with the Teacup Die, to make the teacup.  They are so cute!  To ground them, I cut a little oval using the My Creative Time Stitched Oval Die.  The sentiment is from Tea for Two.

MCT 66th Edition Release Blog Hop & Sale

Welcome to the My Creative Time 66th Edition Release Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the very talented Jessica.  If you just happened upon here, you might want to head over to Emma's blog, to the beginning of the hop.  This is a very fun release, and I hope you are as excited about it as we are!


I had fun making another bookmark for our hop today!  I can't get enough of the new So Many Books stamp and die set!  For this one, I used the bookmark die to die cut a white bookmark and a small piece of rainbow patterned paper for the bottom.  I also trimmed this piece with one of the Fun Stitched Edges Dies.  I then stamped the sentiment from So Many Books and added a sweet stack of books, which I watercolored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.

Here's a closer look at So Many Books.  It is available now in the My Creative Time Store


Starting THIS Friday, April 21st, 2017 @ 8AM PST, our "Freebie" for this release is the PRETTY  Watering Can Die.  It will be given to the FIRST 75 shoppers!  If you are one of the first 75 shoppers, it will be automatically added to your package at the time of packaging/shipping.  Once the first 75 shoppers come through, the set will be available for purchase.  So if it's for sale in the store, you are not one of the 75.  No exceptions will be made.  This freebie set is not a part of the "bundle" and will be sold separately!

I had fun doing some watercoloring with distress inks to make these bookmarks.  You can see below the colors I used.  The quotes stamped are from So Many Books, as are the sweet little flowers.  The cute little owl is from another new set from this release, Grad Night.  I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.

MCT 66th Edition Sneak Peek #3

Are you ready for another day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Today's set, Grad Night, is a must have for this time of year.  It has your traditional graduation images with coordinating dies, along with some cute ones too!  And, of course, there are plenty of great sentiments!


I created my own custom-made background for this card, heat embossing the graduation cap multiple times on Strathmore Bristol cardstock and then inking it up with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mustard Seed.  I trimmed this with the 4" Stitched Square Die and then stamped one of the new sentiments on a Ribbon End Banner.

I just love this cute little worm!  I colored him with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, heat embossed his cap with white embossing powder on black cardstock, and then cut both with the coordinating dies.  Fun little graduation card!

MCT 66th Edition Sneak Peek #2

Are you ready for another day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Today we have another darling set to share with you!  It's called Healing Wishes, and it is has four of the prettiest flower arrangements (stamps plus dies), along with a bunch of sentiment stamps!


For my card today, I did some "ink smooshing" with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mustard Seed and Abandoned Coral on watercolor paper, and added some splatters of Black Soot.  I then drew a frame with a Sakura Black Glaze Gel Pen, leaving a space for a sentiment from Healing Wishes.  The pretty flowerpot of tulips, also from Healing Wishes, was stamped on Strathmore Bristol cardstock, and I watercolored it with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  Just wait until you see the three other flower arrangements.  They are all adorable!
