Stamped Thank You


It's that time of year - thank you note time!  I felt like just doing some good old stamping with this card, and I pulled out an older set, Papertrey Ink's Embroidered Blooms.  I cut the stamped piece at 4" x 5 1/2" and added a strip of red cardstock to the top.  Easy peasy!

Rainbow Birthday


I've got another card today inspired by Online Card Classes' Rainbow Maker class.  I'm finally getting to watching those videos!  This one was a fun one to make.  I die cut a piece of Strathmore Bristol Cardstock with one of the My Creative Time Scalloped Stitched Square Dies (I used another one of these dies for the card base), and then inked up a little rainbow using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, and Blueprint Sketch.  I then placed one of Heidi Swapp's Mini Stencils:  Patterns on top and used the same colors to get the triangles. 

I thought this sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Bash Sentiments worked perfectly with the geometric background.  Some Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Confetti finished off this card!

Raccoon Birthday Card


I used another of the Cricut Woodland Whimsy Animal cuts for my card today.  I just think they are so fun!  To turn this one into a birthday card, I added a balloon made with one of the My Creative Time Stitched Circle Balloon Dies, and stamped it with a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Stylish Sentiments Birthdays.  Of course, I used one of my favorite rectangle dies from MCT's Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More for the background.

Owl Birthday


My niece recently turned 13, and I found the prettiest owl card in the Cricut Woodland Whimsy Animals cartridge to use on her card.  I added a couple of presents that I also found in Cricut Design Space and adhered them all to a rectangle made with the one of the dies from My Creative Time Stitched Rectangle Frame Dies & More.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Bash Sentiments.  I finished off the card with a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.

For my project today, I made a card using the new Chill Out.  I just love the darling little snowmen and sweet sentiments in this set!  I stamped the snowman onto Strathmore Bristol Cardstock and colored him with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  I then created a little scene for him with the Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Dies, along with one of the Fun Stitched Edges Dies, to create the snow.  A white Uni-ball Signo Pen was perfect for adding some snowflakes!

Lastly, I die cut circles using the Bunches of Fun Circles Dies and More Stitched Circle Dies to create a little place for my sentiment.

It's time for the My Creative Time 74th Edition sneak peek!  Hopefully you've seen all of the fun sets we've showcased this week for the overstock sale that begins tomorrow.  We do have one new set being released, and it's called Chill Out.  I'm loving this set with its cute snowmen and fun sentiments!


For my card today, I stamped one of the snowmen and the little envelope onto Strathmore Bristol Cardstock and colored it with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  The cute sentiment is also from the Chill Out set.

For the background, I die cut a circle using one of the More Stitched Circle Dies and added some "snow" that I trimmed with one of the Fun Stitched Edges Dies.  I cut my patterned paper, from Echo Park's Splendid Sunshine collection with one of the Scalloped Stitched Square Dies.

Card for the Camper


My sixth grade nephew was at Outdoor Ed this week, and we were allowed to send him a letter.  Of course, I had to make him a card, and this little moose on the Cricut Campin' Critters cartridge, was just perfect!  I made a background with the My Creative Time MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies and one of the Fun Stitched Edges Dies for the hill.  That cute patterned paper is from an old October Afternoon pack.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Summer Camp Stamp Set.

MCT Inspire Me Wednesday


It's another Inspire Me Wednesday with My Creative Time!  This summer I signed up for Online Card Classes's Rainbow Maker class, and I just finally had a chance to a watch a couple of the videos last weekend.  Carissa Wiley's cards inspired my card today.

I took the "thanks" stamp and die from Fun Notes and used my Misti to help me stamp it in rainbow colors.  I then layered it on top of a banner that I made with one of the Sentiment Label Dies.  I finished off the card with some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins in 4 mm, 6 mm, and 8mm.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog for some more inspiration today!

50th Birthday Card


One of my sisters just celebrated her 50th birthday, and this is the card I made for her.  I made that cool flowery background with the Papertrey Ink Mix & Mat:  Scallops dies.  The sentiment is from PTI's  Big Birthday Wishes, and I stamped it onto a banner made with one of the My Creative Time Ribbon End Banners.  I die cut the numbers with my Cricut Maker, using cuts from the Nursery Rhymes cartridge.  I finished off this card with some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins, in 4 mm, 6 mm, and 8mm.
