Pain, Pain Go Away

One of my friends broke her foot last week, so I made this card to cheer her up.  The terracotta cardstock base is cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  To get the pinking shear look on my black layer, I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Papertrey Ink Pinking Shears Border.  The kraft patterned layer is from My Mind's Eye Kraft Fun Day Everyday Fun.  I got the sweet sentiment from My Creative Time's Pain, Pain Go Away stamp set

The cute girl is cut at 4 3/4" from the Cricut Paper Dolls Teen Scene cartridge.  I switched her up a bit by adding some Imaginisce Black Glam Rocks for buttons and a cute face from Peachy Keens Laughy Taffy stamp set.  I also made crutches for her by taking the pair from the Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge and using my Gypsy to adjust their size to match her.  They ended up being 1.06" x 5.97".

Birthday Banner Card

Here's a fun card made with My Creative Time's Build a Banner Kit.  The aqua base is A2 size, and I layered green cardstock on top of that.

Before adhering the white layer, I made a banner using the Build a Banner Kit, using letters from My Creative Time's Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamp set to spell out "HAPPY".  I sewed the banner to the white cardstock and then popped up the medallions and circles with dimensional adhesive.

This sweet sentiment is from My Creative Time's Teeny Tag Greetings, one of my favorite stamp sets!

with gratitude.

Here's yet another quick and simple thank you note.  For this one, I used a 3 1/2" x 5" green card base, and layered it with a 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" white piece that I cut from a little Recollections note card.  All of the stamping is from Papertrey Ink's Lovely Leaves set.

MCT 3-D Wednesday & a Winner!

It's one of my favorite My Creative Time events... 3-D Wednesday!  I love making little boxes, and this gable box from the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 cartridge is the perfect shape to store a set of 3 1/2" x 5" notecards that I made for a friend.  I used my Gypsy to see that cutting the box at 10 1/4" would be the perfect size for my cards.

I was so excited that my new My Creative Time Flower Petal Dies arrived just in time to decorate the box!  I ran them through my Cuttlebug with a variety of colors and curled the petals around my Gypsy stylus before adhering them together and adding buttons from my stash.  The adorable sentiment is from Emma's new Floral Sentiments stamp set, and I stamped it on cardstock cut with her Curly Label Die.  The coordinating frame is from the Inspiring Words {Accents} stamp set.

Here's one of the notecards I made, using another flower and a pretty sentiment from Floral Sentiments.  Be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see what Emma and the rest of the design team have to share with you today, as well as all of the winners from last week's blog hop!

Congrats to my winner of the Echo Park 6 x 6 Dots & Stripes Soda Fountain paper pad!  I will be contacting you for your address!
