For my second project today, I used the cute little Baby Bump Add-On stamp set.  You can create congratulate all sorts of people on an impending birth with the sentiment stamps included in this set!  I again used the Chunky Stitched Tag Dies to create my tag and added a watercolored banner from The Sky is the Limit and a cute little cow from Baby Steps.

Whimsical Smile


I love Papertrey Ink's Boho Rounds stamp set.  It's fun to just stamp with black ink and them color with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  The sentiment I used for this card is from PTI's Signature Greetings.

MCT Inspire Me Wednesday


It's another Inspire Me Wednesday with My Creative Time!  The inspiration for today's card came from a wonderful one from the talented Liz Munoz.  I needed to make a birthday card for my brother, and I knew this one would be easy to convert to a masculine style.

I started by making a stencil with the cloud edge die from More Stitched Edges and a piece of clear cardstock and then using it to ink up with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Stormy Sky.  I then added the city skyline stamp from Let's Paint the Town and trimmed the edge with one of the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies.

The sentiments and the Superman die are from the Have a Super Day set, and the starburst shape is from Super Tag Dies.

Hedgehog Birthday Card


Here's a fun little birthday card I made for my niece.  I found the hedgehog in Cricut Design Space and used My Creative Time's Stitched Circle Balloon Dies.  The sentiment is from MCT's Time to Celebrate.  I don't know why, but that hedgehog just makes me laugh.

Crocheted Beanie


Now that is summer vacation, I have lots of time for all of my different crafts!  I made this beanie for my friend's birthday.  I got the pattern, called the Tex Beanie from HatsbyElvee, on Etsy.  It worked up really quickly.  I used Canon Simply Soft yarn in Light Country Blue.

Of course, I needed a tag to use with my packaging.  I really need a stamp that says "crocheted," but I do not have one!  Instead I used Papertrey Ink's Just for You stamp set and Limitless Layers:  1 3/4" Circle Collection Dies, some older sets from my collection.

Birthday Card with the Cricut!


I made this card for my brother-in-law using my Cricut Maker and this week's free set in Cricut Design Space, Paper Pups!  He's such a dog lover, and I thought these images were so cute!  I wrote out a sentiment using a Cricut Marker and the Don Juan font.  The background is trimmed with one of  My Creative Times Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More to give it some more interest.

MCT Manly Monday


It's Manly Monday with My Creative Time, and I made a baby card welcoming the new little man in my friends' lives!

I used the adorable Hello Baby stamp and die set - my all time favorite set for making baby cards!  I love the giant onesie die!  Since my friends have decorated their nursery with a dinosaur theme, I die cut a cute little dinosaur with my Cricut and the Create a Critter cartridge.  The stars were all made with dies from 4x4 Journal Die + More, and I used the largest rectangles from MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies and Stitched Rectangular Dies & More for the background layers.
