MCT Anything Goes!

It's Anything Goes day with My Creative Time!  I thought I'd take this opportunity to make a cute little spring birthday card!  I used the new Favorite Bunny stamp and die set for the perfect sentiment and the new Mini Bunny Dies to make my adorable little bunny.  It's hard to see in the picture, but I colored his eye with a Sakura Blake Glaze Gel Pen to give it some shine.  I then used the largest of the Stitched Circle Balloon Dies to make my pretty balloon, using some retired Papertrey Ink patterned paper.  I tied it with PTI Rustic Jute Button Twine.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see more fun projects by her and other members of the design team!

Selective Stenciling

I recently joined Stamp Nation, and I'm having fun watching the tutorials and learning some new techniques.  For today's card, I tried "Selective Stenciling with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens."  To do this, I took a piece of Strathmore Bristol cardstock, taped a mini Heidi Swapp stencil to it, and then selectively chose triangles to color in with my Zig pens.  Kind of fun!  I then trimmed down the piece with one of the My Creative Time Stitched Squares Dies Inside & Out and mounted it onto a 3" x 3" card base.  The sentiment is from MCT's Vintage Sentiments, and I mounted it onto a banner made with one of the MCT Vintage Stitched Label Dies, with the length adjusted.  A few Neat & Tangled sequins finished it off!

MCT 64th Edition Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the My Creative Time 64th 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 used a lot of the new sets to make my spinner card today!  To start off, I used one of the new egg dies from Scalloped Egg to die cut a window in my card base and in my white rectangle, which I had trimmed with one of the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies.  Then I used another one of the egg dies to die cut some pretty eggs, which I arranged around the window and topped with an Easter Basket, cut from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge.  Finally, I stamped the pretty greeting, from the new Favorite Bunny set.

To make the spinner, I used one of the adorable new Mini Bunny Dies to die cut one of the bunnies twice, adhering them together with a piece of sewing thread down the center.  I then taped the thread to my card base with some washi tape before adhering the white layer on top.  If you wind up the bunny before closing the card, it goes crazy spinning with the recipient opens it! 

Here's a closer look at Favorite Bunny and Scalloped Egg Dies.  They are available now in the My Creative Time Store
