MCT Birthday Palooza

It's Birthday Palooza with My Creative Time!  Perfect timing, because I needed to make a birthday card for one of my students!  I thought she would love a shaped card, so I pulled out the MCT Party Hat Die Set and made one out of the larger party hat die.  The sentiment and bird are from Tweet Me, with the bird die from Fun Tweet Me Dies, and I used the Vintage Stitched Label Die for the sentiment!

Book Thank You Cards

We recently had a book fair at our school, and so many families were very generous in buying books for my classroom!  Luckily I had the perfect stamp and die sets for making thank you cards for them! To make this cute book shaped card, I used the Papertrey Ink Book Cover Card Die.  The stamp along the spine is from PTI's Bibliophile stamp set.  To decorate the cover I used a lot of My Creative Time products:  the "thanks" die from Hello Frame, a sentiment from Thankful Greetings, and pretty leaves from Little Stitched Leaves.

I made a lot of these cards, and I mixed up some of them by using the MCT Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies, always a favorite of mine!

Pretty Thank You

This little thank you card was inspired by one I saw by Danielle Flanders.  I loved her idea of using a stencil behind the Papertrey Ink Bitty Bouquet stamps and dies, and those little bouquets are so fun to play with!  The stencil I used is from the Heidi Swapp Stencils Minis Patterns.  The pretty sentiment is from My Creative Time's Floral Sentiments, and I also used one of the MCT's MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies for the backgrounds.

MCT Weird Holiday

It's time to celebrate a "weird holiday" with My Creative Time!  Did you know that October 20th is "Sweetest Day"?  I'm not really sure what that means, but I have the perfect My Creative Time set for the occasion:  Sweet Wishes!  I used it to die cut "sweet" and stamp my sentiment upon the cake that I made with the Birthday Cake Die.  To mix it up today, I created a z-fold card base by cutting my cardstock at the usual size of 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", and then I scored it at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4".  I thought this made for a fun different type of card for the recipient!

MCT Anything Goes

It's Anything Goes with My Creative Time!  Today I have fun birthday card that I made for one of my students' upcoming birthdays!  My school's mascot is a star, so I thought it would be fun to use one of the Bunch of Stitched Star Dies and add one of the Party Hat Dies to his head!  I made his face with a very old Peachy Keen face stamp.  Of course, he needed to be holding a little birthday cake, and the Baby Cake Die was the perfect size!  This is a big card to accommodate the big star, 6" x 6", and I used one of the More Stitched Edges Dies to give it a fun torn border down one side.  I finished it off with a sentiment from Time to Celebrate, stamped onto a banner made with one of the Stitched Decorative Banner Dies!
