MCT 86th Edition Release Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 86th Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have such a fun release for you this month, and I am so excited about today's sneak!  It is a gorgeous new stamp and die set called Amazing!


This set has the most beautiful flower stamps with coordinating dies!  I stamped them onto Strathmore Bristol cardstock and colored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  They really are such a huge focal point of the card, that the only other thing I needed was a strip of striped patterned paper and then my sentiment, from the Springtime Smiles stamp set.  I think it makes for a beautiful sympathy card.

Sporty Birthday Card


A boy in my class celebrated his birthday recently.  Since he is very sporty, I found cuts of a soccer, ball, basketball, and football in Cricut Design Space that would work perfectly!  I then made a background by putting strips of painter's tape across some white cardstock, inking up the remaining space with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Twisted Citron, and then adding some white polka dots using Hero Arts Hero Hues Unicorn Ink and a Heidi Swapp stencil.  A sentiment from My Creative Time's Time to Celebrate finished off this card!

MCT Thoughtful Tuesday


It's Thoughtful Tuesday with My Creative Time, a time to just let somebody know you are thinking about them.  I've always loved the little Watering Can Die, and I thought it would look cute filled up with some flowers from Thank You Mom.  I inked up a bit of a stamp from Get Schooled to give some interest to the background.  A sentiment from Friendship are Forever was perfect to finish off this card!

MCT Throwback Thursday


It's Throwback Thursday with My Creative Time!  Time to pull out those older MCT sets and make a fun project!  For my card today I used one of my favorite winter sets - last year's Chill Out, for the cute snowman, and the adorable The Adventure Begins set for the balloons.  I watercolored them on some Strathmore Watercolor paper. The sentiment is from Time to Celebrate.  Of course I used some MCT staples for my layers:  Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More and Stitched Postage Frame Dies.  I just love pulling together stamps and dies from old sets to make something new!

Birthday Shaker Card with Tulle!


I'm working my way through Online Card Classes' Clean & Simple Holiday, and I was so inspired by Jennifer McGuire's shaker cards made with tulle!  I thought it would be fun to try making a birthday card using this concept.

I started by trimming my light blue panel with one of My Creative Time's Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies.  After positioning this on top of my folded white card base, I ran it through my Vagabond with one of MCT's Stitched Circle Balloon Dies.  This cut through the blue piece and left an impression on the white card base, so I was able to remove the blue piece, nestle the die into that impression on the card base and run it through again.  This time it cut through the front of the card base and left an impression on the back part, so I opened up the card base, nestled the die into the impression on the back part, and ran it through a third time, with the card open.

Now I was ready to adhere a piece of tulle to the front of the card base, and another to the back of the blue piece.  I did this using 1/8" double sided tape, right around the edge of the balloon cut out.  Next I adhered the balloon string die cut and the "celebrate" die cut, which came from the MCT Let's Party Word Dies.

Now I was ready to put some sequins on top of the tule on the card base, add some liquid adhesive on the blue piece and put them together!  Such a fun card!

For my project today, I made a cute little treat box our new Sleigh and Sleigh Bed Dies!  I just love these!  And, I thought it would be fun to have the snowman from the Cute Snowman Gift Tag Die leading the sleigh (or maybe he was just hit by it - not sure).  Either way, he's pretty cute up front!

MCT 5 Days of Christmas - Day 4

Hello, and welcome to our 4th day of the My Creative Time 5 Days of Christmas!  Today we will all be showcasing some quick and easy gift card holders!


For my project today, I made a fun little gift card holder using the Gift Card Gift Box Die.  This little box is the perfect size to decorate for any occasion!  I pulled out one of my favorite Christmas sets to embellish it:  No Peeking.  The stocking die from this set is just too cute, and I love how the sentiments fit onto it perfectly!  I finished off this project with some pretty twine and a few sequins.
