MCT "Do Over" Thursday

It's "Do Over" Thursday with My Creative Time!  This is the day to take an old project you've made and give it a new look!  For today's project I took a card that I made a couple of years ago (you can see it further down in this post) and redid it, keeping the layout, but changing the colors and some of the elements.  Both cards are 3 1/2" x 5".  For today's, my background piece is inked up with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers, and Mustard Seed.  After blending the ink, I spritzed it with my Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer, and once it dried, I ran the piece through my Vagabond with one of the More Stitched Rectangular Dies.  I trimmed off the right side to make it fit my card base, and then added a black piece for the right side, which I trimmed with the same More Stitched Rectangular Die, along with one of the More Stitched Edges Dies.

Next I added a sentiment from the Happy Haunting stamp set, a cat made with a die from Spooky Time, and a web and spider made with dies from Wicked Fun Dies.  I covered the spider with Glossy Accents.

Here is my original card.  More details can be found here.

Pug Birthday Card

One of my students is OBSESSED with pugs!  I knew I had to make a pug birthday card for him, and I found the perfect cut in the Silhouette Online Store.  I added some googley eyes, which I thought was a great touch, as well as some Glossy Accents for his nose.  For the background, I die cut a rectangle using one of the My Creative Time Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies and ran it through the Vagabond with the Cuttlebug Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  I finished off the card with a sentiment from the retired MCT Celebrate Good Times stamp/die set, stamped upon a die cut made with one of the MCT Stitched Square Speech Bubbles.

Stack of Presents Birthday Card

I couldn't resist picking up the Gifts of the Season stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink!  This is such a cute set that can be used for the holidays, or, as you can see on this card, for birthdays!  I die cut the presents in white cardstock, and then used the two stamps that give all of the different patterns, using PTI's Aqua Mist and New Leaf inks.  I then added a few more die cuts and popped them up with some dimensional adhesive, stamping some of them with Raspberry Fizz ink.  A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins added some interest.  I covered the base of the card with a die cut made with the PTI Cover Plate:  Stripes Diagonal Die.  Finally, I added a sentiment die cut made with one of the My Creative Time Mini Greetings Dies.
