MCT 87th Edition Release Sneak Peek #2

Are you ready for another day of the My Creative Time 87th Edition Release sneak peeks?  Today we have a wonderful new stamp and die set to share with you:  You + Me.  This set has two beautiful heart dies and nine sentiments in a gorgeous font! 


 Today I made a gift card holder for Valentine's Day.  I used the Gift Card Gift Box Die and then added the Stitched Belly Band wrapped around it.  Next I used one of the new heart dies from You + Me to make 3 hearts, stacking them for extra dimension, and I stamped one of the new sentiments on top.  Finally, I finished off the project by adding some silver sequins.

MCT 87th Edition Release Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 87th Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have such a fun release for you this month!  We are starting off today with a new die, LOVE Block.  LOVE Block will be free with your order this Friday, January 18, 2019, if you are one of the first 25 shoppers, beginning at 8 AM PST.  Once 25 shoppers come through, it will be available for purchase.


I decided that this cute little die would look perfect on a tag!  I die cut it twice, so that I could layer it, and then I adhered it to my tag, made with the Super Tag Dies.  A few hearts made with dies from the Kindness Stamp & Die set, covered in Glossy Accents were the final touch!

MCT 3D Wednesday


I't 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time!  Now that I've put away all of my Christmas decorations, my house is looking a little bare, so I decided to make a fun Valentine's Day bouquet!  I used both the Small Stitched Pinwheel and the Medium Stitched Pinwheel Dies.  The cute little hearts in the centers were made with the Pinwheel Centers Dies.  After assembling the pinwheels, I hot glued them to some bamboo skewers that I picked up at Target.  I popped them into a vase, and it was finished!

Thanks for Brightening my Day!


Here's another of the thank you notes I made for Christmas presents this year.  I used the Papertrey Ink Lighten Up stamps and dies.  By running the dies through my Vagabond multiple times with a variety of colors of cardstock, I ended up with enough different lamp bases and lampshades to make 6 different cards!  Some fun striped patterned paper worked great to ground the lamps.

MCT Gift Card Giving


Happy New Year!  We are starting a new segment on My Creative Time called Gift Card Giving!  There are so many adorable MCT gift card dies, which I just love, since I find myself giving gift cards often!  Today I used the Pretty Gift Card Holder.  I decorated it with a cute little cake made with the Baby Cake Die and a sentiment from Time to Celebrate!  A few sequins finished it off.  So quick and easy!

MCT Manly Monday


It's Manly Monday with My Creative Time! For my project today, I made a birthday card for my brother-in-law.  I used the Circle Border Die to trim the edge of my card base.  I thought it would be fun to fill in the circles with pops of color, and I was able to do that using the large single circle die included in the set to make the circles that I adhered behind the small circular openings.  For the larger circular openings, I used a die from You Are Spot On.  To make the border really pop (and to give myself a place to write a message), I lined the inside of the card with a piece of light blue cardstock.

Next I heat embossed my sentiment, from the Just a Note stamp and die set, with white embossing powder.  The beer bottles are a cut from the Silhouette Online Store.  I added star die cuts to them from the 4x4 Journal Die + More set, and layered both of them onto a circle made with one of the More Stitched Circle Dies.
