MCT 3D Wednesday


It's 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time, and I thought it would be fun to come up with a treat design for our next big holiday- Halloween!  The Stitched Favor Box makes a perfect pumpkin, paired with leaves from A Thankful Heart.  I made the tag with the Teeny Tag Layering Dies and a sentiment from Teeny Tag Holidays.  That cute patterned paper is from a discontinued Papertrey Ink set - Halloween Prints.

MCT Inspire Me Wednesday


It's Inspire Me Wednesday with My Creative Time, and I modeled my card today after the cutest card that I found on Pinterest!  To do so, I cut a rainbow of stripes of cardstock and adhered them both to my white card base, and to another piece of white cardstock.  I then die cut the separate piece of cardstock with the largest scalloped die from Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Dies.  I added a sentiment onto this layer from the Sea You Soon set.  Next I die cut a scalloped square, using one of the Scallop Stitched Square Dies, and then die cut a balloon in the center of it, using one of the Stitched Large Balloon Dies.  I attached this piece to my card with some dimensional adhesive.  I finished off the card with some Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Confetti.

Vintage Truck Box Card


When I saw this vintage truck box card cut on SVGCuts.com, I just couldn't resist!  Isn't it the cutest? I made it for my dad's birthday, so I added a present to it with, using one of the My Creative Time Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out with one of the MCT Cute Bow Dies!


For the sentiment on the side, I used a stamp from MCT's Prehistoric Holidays.

MCT 69th Edition Release Blog Hop & Sale

Welcome to the My Creative Time 69th 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!


My card today is showcasing the new Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Dies!  I got a little inky with this card.  I used the largest of the scalloped rectangle to make a die cut out of Strathmore Bristol cardstock, and then inked up a rainbow with distress inks.  I then die cut "hello" with the Big Hello die and some hearts, using dies from Hey There Little Lady, from the center, where it wouldn't show, once I covered it.  I had to be careful to place all of the dies exactly where I would want to place the die cuts on my white layer, so that the rainbow colors would match up with the scalloped layer.  The rounded white rectangle was made with the largest rectangular die from Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Dies.

Here's a closer look at the Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Dies.  It is available now in the My Creative Time Store

MCT 69th Edition Sneak Peek #3

It's our last day of the My Creative Time 69th 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 set of dies and a freebie for you to get a glimpse of today.  


The last die set is called Big Stitched Flip Flop!  How cute is this?  It's perfect for your summer projects!  It comes with this GIANT flip flop, and a scalloped layer to put behind, which I didn't use on today's project.  Beside the flower embellishment that I used, there are also a heart and a star!  I had fun using different textures on my flip flop.  For the flower, I used the DCWV Canvas Mat Stack, and for the strap, I used the DCWV Gauze Paper Stack.  A few days ago I had tried inking up a piece of Strathmore Bristol cardstock with distress ink, laying a Hero Arts stencil on top, and spritzing it with water.  It didn't quite turn out how I envisioned it, but I thought it was kind of a cool look for the base of my flip flop.  The fun sentiment is from Sit Back & Relax - Revised, and I used the new Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Dies to ground it all, popping it up from my card base with some fun foam.  Some Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Confetti finished off this card.


For my next card, I had a little inking fun!  I cut a piece of Strathmore Bristol cardstock the size of my card base and inked it up with Salty Ocean and Peackcock Feathers Distress Inks.  I then added a white layer made with one of the Scalloped Stitched Square Dies, stamping on a sentiment from Make a Splash.  For the presents, I used one of the Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Dies and one of the Scalloped Stitched Squares Dies, inking both of them up with distress inks. The adorable bows on top of the presents were made with this month's freebie, Cute Bows, which is free with your order tomorrow if you are one of the first 75 shoppers, beginning at 8 AM PST.

MCT 69th Edition Sneak Peek #2

Are you ready for another day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Today we an awesome new die to share called Stitched Square Box!  This is perfect for little treats, a small jewelry gift, or fun block decor!


I'm in the process of making a new library corner in my classroom, and I thought it would be fun to create a cute little decoration with this new die.  I was able to use the colors I'm using in my classroom this year too!  On each block, I added a white square, made with one of the Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out.  I then added letters made with the Uppercase Fun Dies, plus a heart made with one of the Stitched Heart Layering Dies.  I thought these would be really cute in a baby's room too, spelling out the baby's name!  Or they could be used for a baby shower!  Really, the possibilities are endless with this die!
