MCT 75th Edition Sneak Peek #3

It's our last day of the My Creative Time 75th Edition sneak peeks!  Tomorrow is the day you can finally see this awesome release in its entirety and get shopping!  But first, we have one last die set for you to get a peek at.  Cute Heart Tag Die is perfect for making a sweet little tag to give with a Valentine's gift or a special gift for that someone special any time of the year!


There are three parts to the Cute Heart Tag Die:  the base, which I cut in kraft, a layer to cover the front part (this tag opens like a card), which I cut in red, and another layer, which I cut in white with paper from the DCWV Woven Paper Stack.  You can keep it as simple as that, or dress it up a bit!  I added a little banner, using a die from 4x4 Journal Die + More and a sentiment from Ouch!

MCT 75th Edition Sneak Peek #2

Are you ready for another day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Today we have another fun new die set, called XOXO Border Dies!  This set includes four rectangular dies that have the most adorable XOXO stitching around the edges.  Perfect for Valentine's Day or a little love note!  It also has a nice sized "XOXO" die!


For my project today, I made a card using the new XOXO Border Dies!  I loves these adorable rectangles with the fun stitching!  For my card, I decided to cover the whole card base with some fun patterned paper from the Recollections' Girlsquad pack.  I then added a rectangle made with the smallest of the four border dies and layered flowers from Thank You Mom on top of it.  The cute "XOXO" was also made with a die from the XOXO Border Die set!  I finished off the card with a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.

MCT 75th Edition Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 75th Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have quite an adorable release to share with you this week!  First off is More Scalloped Heart Dies!  This set contains five dies - 2 stitched hearts, each with an adorable scalloped layer, plus a "love" die. 


 For my card today I used three of the new dies.  I cut "love" from black cardstock and layered it over the two heart die cuts.  Don't you love the teeny heart cut-outs in the scallops?  So adorable!  All of the patterned papers I used today are from a darling paper pad I picked up at Michael's, called Girlsquad, from Recollections.

I made the banner using one of MCT's Sentiment Label Dies. Since I was using the little heart dies from 4x4 Journal Die + More and had that set out, I used the large square die from that set to cut off the top of the banner to make it just the right size for my card.

Go-Kart Birthday


My nephew's birthday is next weekend, and he is planning a go-kart party, so this cut I found in the Silhouette Online Store was just perfect for his card!  I wanted some black and white checked paper to add to the card and didn't have any, so I found a free pattern online, uploaded it to Cricut Design Space, and then did a print and cut with my Cricut Maker.  Perfect!  Then, my background was looking a bit plain, so I used my Scor-Pal to add some embossed lines.  Finally, I added the perfect sentiment, from My Creative Time's The Adventure Begins stamp set.

MCT Birthday Palooza



It's a Birthday Palooza with My Creative Time!  We always need to make birthday cards, right?  I made this one for my sister-in-law.  She's just getting into mountain bike riding, so I thought the adorable little bike stamp from the Main Street stamp set would be perfect!  I inked it up using Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Bubble Gum, Orange Soda, Butter Bar, Green Hills, and Cornflower.  Then I used the die and a stamp from Happy Everything to make my sentiment.  Some Simon Says Stamp's Moonshine Confetti finished off this card.

Quick & Easy Thank You


If you're still working on thank you notes from the holidays, I have a very quick and easy idea for you.  I started with a piece of Strathmore Bristol cardstock, and made a 3 1/2" x 5" card base.  I inked up a small portion with Tim Holtz distress inks, using Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron.  Then, I just added a fun die cut (hearts from the new My Creative Time I Adore You kit) and a sentiment (from MCT's Hey There Little Lady).  Super simple, but I love how it turned out!

Sending You Love


I just love the new My Creative Time I Adore You kit!  I used it again for today's card, using the same Tim Holtz Distress Ink's, Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick, that I used last week.  After inking it up, I used the sweet "Love" die and cut twice, layering the die cuts on the card.  The "sending you" stamp is from a retired MCT set, Pain Pain Go Away.  A few gold Neat & Tangled sequins finished it off!
