Dinosaur Birthday Card

One of my students love dinosaurs, so I had to use a cut from the Cricut Dinosaur Tracks cartridge for his birthday card.  For the background, I used the My Creative Time Stitched Rectangular Frame Die, along with one of the More Stitched Edges Dies.  The sentiment, which I heat embossed with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, is from MCT's Prehistoric Holidays.

MCT Inspire Me Wednesday

It's Inspire Me Wednesday with My Creative Time, and today I made a birthday card inspired by this fun card by Laura Bassen.  I loved her cut up watercolor background!  I thought it would be fun to make a brick design for mine.  I started by using Tim Holtz distress inks and just watercoloring stripes of different colors on Strathmore watercolor paper.  When the stripes dried, I flicked on some water droplets and then blotted them off with paper towel.  Then I used one of the More Stitched Rectangular Dies to die cut lots of little rectangles and adhered them onto my card base in a brick pattern.

I also watercolored the cute turtle from the new Sea You Soon set.  I love this adorable little guy!  For the sentiment, also from this set, I die cut one of the Ribbon End Banners.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog for more Inspire Me Wednesday fun!

50th Birthday Card

I made this fun card for a friend's 50th birthday, creating the background using the Papertrey Ink Boho Rounds stamp set.  I cut the numbers from the Cricut Nursery Rhymes cartridge and finished off the sentiment with a stamp from PTI's Big Birthday Wishes!

MCT 67th Edition Release Blog Hop & Sale

Welcome to the My Creative Time 67th 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!

I had fun making another treat box using the Stitched Favor Box for our hop today!  I just love this die!  It makes it so easy to make a quick little treat or favor.  How fun would it be to whip up a bunch of these this fall for your kids' teachers or, if you are a teacher like me, for your colleagues?  I used some fun patterned paper from Echo Park's Teacher's Pet collection and added a tag made with a die from Fun Stitched Tag Dies, heat embossed with a sentiment from Write On.  So easy!

Here's a closer look at the Stitched Favor Box.  It is available now in the My Creative Time Store

MCT 67th Edition Sneak Peek #4

It's our last day of the My Creative Time 67th 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 die for you to get a glimpse of today.  We have a new treat box die called Stitched Favor Box, and it's ever so cute!

There are two things I love about this die:  it fits perfectly on a 6x6 piece of paper (I used Echo Park's Fine & Dandy here) and no adhesive is required to put it together!  There are two slits that allow you to slide the tabs into!  This would be extremely easy to make for an event such as a baby shower and throw a few piece of candy inside.

I decorated mine with a cute little birthday tag today.  I created it using the Mini Chalkboard Tags set.  But really, the possibilities with this die are endless!

*Sneak Peek Giveaway***

We will be giving away the sets we are showcasing each day to ONE lucky winner!  For example, for the set we showcase on Wednesday, Emma will announce the winner in her video on Thursday, and for the set we showcase on Thursday, she will announce on Friday, and so on... ALL you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment on our blogs!  You are NOT required to comment on EVERY SINGLE blog, but the more you comment on, the better chance you have of winning!  VERY IMPORTANT, please leave your contact information with your comment, just in case "YOU" are the lucky winner!  For extra entries, you can spread the word about this release on Facebook, tweet about it, OR even instagram it! #mycreativetime!  GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY, & let's start spreading the word!

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have for you today!
