MCT 86th Edition Release Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 86th Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have such a fun release for you this month, and I am so excited about today's sneak!  It is a gorgeous new stamp and die set called Amazing!


This set has the most beautiful flower stamps with coordinating dies!  I stamped them onto Strathmore Bristol cardstock and colored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  They really are such a huge focal point of the card, that the only other thing I needed was a strip of striped patterned paper and then my sentiment, from the Springtime Smiles stamp set.  I think it makes for a beautiful sympathy card.

*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!

Sporty Birthday Card


A boy in my class celebrated his birthday recently.  Since he is very sporty, I found cuts of a soccer, ball, basketball, and football in Cricut Design Space that would work perfectly!  I then made a background by putting strips of painter's tape across some white cardstock, inking up the remaining space with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Twisted Citron, and then adding some white polka dots using Hero Arts Hero Hues Unicorn Ink and a Heidi Swapp stencil.  A sentiment from My Creative Time's Time to Celebrate finished off this card!

MCT Thoughtful Tuesday


It's Thoughtful Tuesday with My Creative Time, a time to just let somebody know you are thinking about them.  I've always loved the little Watering Can Die, and I thought it would look cute filled up with some flowers from Thank You Mom.  I inked up a bit of a stamp from Get Schooled to give some interest to the background.  A sentiment from Friendship are Forever was perfect to finish off this card!

MCT Throwback Thursday


It's Throwback Thursday with My Creative Time!  Time to pull out those older MCT sets and make a fun project!  For my card today I used one of my favorite winter sets - last year's Chill Out, for the cute snowman, and the adorable The Adventure Begins set for the balloons.  I watercolored them on some Strathmore Watercolor paper. The sentiment is from Time to Celebrate.  Of course I used some MCT staples for my layers:  Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More and Stitched Postage Frame Dies.  I just love pulling together stamps and dies from old sets to make something new!

Birthday Shaker Card with Tulle!


I'm working my way through Online Card Classes' Clean & Simple Holiday, and I was so inspired by Jennifer McGuire's shaker cards made with tulle!  I thought it would be fun to try making a birthday card using this concept.

I started by trimming my light blue panel with one of My Creative Time's Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies.  After positioning this on top of my folded white card base, I ran it through my Vagabond with one of MCT's Stitched Circle Balloon Dies.  This cut through the blue piece and left an impression on the white card base, so I was able to remove the blue piece, nestle the die into that impression on the card base and run it through again.  This time it cut through the front of the card base and left an impression on the back part, so I opened up the card base, nestled the die into the impression on the back part, and ran it through a third time, with the card open.

Now I was ready to adhere a piece of tulle to the front of the card base, and another to the back of the blue piece.  I did this using 1/8" double sided tape, right around the edge of the balloon cut out.  Next I adhered the balloon string die cut and the "celebrate" die cut, which came from the MCT Let's Party Word Dies.

Now I was ready to put some sequins on top of the tule on the card base, add some liquid adhesive on the blue piece and put them together!  Such a fun card!

MCT 5 Days of Christmas - Day 5

Hello, and welcome to our 5th day of the My Creative Time 5 Days of Christmas!  Today we thought we would surprise you with a variety of ideas!


For my project today, I made a cute little treat box our new Sleigh and Sleigh Bed Dies!  I just love these!  And, I thought it would be fun to have the snowman from the Cute Snowman Gift Tag Die leading the sleigh (or maybe he was just hit by it - not sure).  Either way, he's pretty cute up front!

MCT 5 Days of Christmas - Day 4

Hello, and welcome to our 4th day of the My Creative Time 5 Days of Christmas!  Today we will all be showcasing some quick and easy gift card holders!


For my project today, I made a fun little gift card holder using the Gift Card Gift Box Die.  This little box is the perfect size to decorate for any occasion!  I pulled out one of my favorite Christmas sets to embellish it:  No Peeking.  The stocking die from this set is just too cute, and I love how the sentiments fit onto it perfectly!  I finished off this project with some pretty twine and a few sequins.

MCT 5 Days of Christmas - Day 3

Hello, and welcome to our 3rd day of the My Creative Time 5 Days of Christmas!  Today we will all be showcasing some quick and easy cards!


For my card today, I decided to use a watercolor background that I'd made for another project some time back and ended up not using.  I thought it made a nice background for the Winter Flake Dies.  I then made a panel using silver and white pieces of cardstock, die cutting openings in them, using the Scalloped Stitched Circles Dies.  The sentiment is from Christmas Wishes.  I tied a bit of baker's twine onto this front panel and then popped it up onto the card base using some dimensional adhesive.

Hello, and welcome to our 2nd day of the My Creative Time 5 Days of Christmas!  Today we will all be showcasing some quick and easy treat holders!


For my project today, I made a cute little treat box using some of my favorite MCT products!  For the box itself, I used the Milk Carton Die. I then adorned it with the snowman from the Cute Snowman Gift Tag Die!  I just love this little guy!  I finished this project off with one of my all time favorite MCT stamps and dies - the Teeny Tag Layering Dies, stamped with a sentiment from Teeny Tag Holidays!

Today is our 1st day of our 5 Days of Christmas!  We will all be showcasing some quick and EASY tags!


Since I knitted up a cowl as a gift for somebody special, I just had to make a tag to go with it!  I used the tag die from Made with Love, but I ran it through my Vagabond with the top plate just covering half of the die and then slid the die down to make a longer size tag before putting the top plate on the other half, running it through the Vagabond again.  The "knitted with love" sentiment and the adorable heart ball of yarn stamp and die are all from Made with Love.  I found the "ho ho ho" sentiment in the Mini Christmas Greetings stamp set, and the darling little tree die cut is from the Holiday Tag set!

Christmas Wishes is full of those perfect sentiments you are always reaching for when making your holiday projects.  I heat embossed one onto my adorable little puppy in a coffee cup die cut, made with the new Cute Mugs set, also being released tomorrow!  I thought it would be fun to make this circle shaped card look like an ornament, so I used the More Stitched Circle Dies to make the card base and then added the ornament holder and bow dies from Fun Stitched Ornaments & More.

Ninth Birthday Card


I just love this snake cut from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge!  He usually holds the number 8, but it's easy to swap out the numbers in Cricut Design Space.  I made this card for one of my students.  A quick watercolor of the background and a sentiment from My Creative Time's Prehistoric Holidays finished off the card!

MCT 3D Wednesday

MCT Made in Minutes


It's Made in Minutes with My Creative Time!  There are so many MCT goodies that are perfect for making quick projects, and I used a couple of them for making a treat box today:  the Mini Gift Box Die and the Reindeer Lollipop Holder Die!    The Mini Gift Box Die makes an adorable little treat box all on its own, but how cute is it when you attach this reindeer head from the lollipop holder die to the front of it?  To cover up the holes on the front of the reindeer die cut, I added a fun bow made with the Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow Die.

Here is a closer look at Just a Little Something:

Birthday Flowerpot Card


We recently celebrated another birthday in my classroom, and I used Lori Whitlock's Card Kit Flower Pot, which I purchased from the Silhouette Online Store, to make this cute little card. The cut comes with the flowers and little scalloped circles that go in the center of them.  I added leaves made with My Creative Time's Stitched Leaves Dies and MCT's Stitched Button Dies for the centers of the flowers.  I cut the flowers with papers from my scraps and popped them up with dimensional adhesive.  The tag was die cut using MCT's Chunky Jar Accessories and stamped with a sentiment from that same set.


The card pulls out of the flowerpot, leaving a big area to write a message.  So fun!

MCT Tag It Tuesday


It's Tag It Tuesday with My Creative Time!  It's finally feeling like fall around here, so I thought I'd made a pretty tag that would be perfect to tie onto a Thanksgiving treat!  I used the Tag Dies and Tag Die Layers for my tag base.  The adorable pumpkin is from the Pumpkin Lollipop Holder Die - such a versatile die!  Finally, I made the sentiment using stamps and a die from Build a Fall Wreath.

Celebrate!


I pulled out the Papertrey Ink Celebrate Big stamp and die set for this card, and it was easy to pull together a fun party look!  I used the My Creative Time Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Dies to dress up the background, added a few sequins, and that was it!

Monday, October 22, 2018

MCT Thoughtful Tuesday


It's Thoughtful Tuesday with My Creative Time, and I decided to pull out the beautiful Tulip Frame Die to make a "thinking of you" card.  I adhered the die cut onto a watercolor background that I created using Tim Holtz distress inks.  I then layered this onto one more layer of black cardstock, cut with one of the Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out.  The sentiment is from Mini Spring Greetings.  Since I was using a white card base, I also added a little white heart die cut, made with a die from 4x4 Journal Die + More.  I kind of like how this turned out with a sunset silhouette look!

This die actually is a set of two dies - one for the bottom of the box and one for the top!  I just think it is the cutest thing!  I made mine out of some fun Halloween patterned paper so that I could use it to give a gift card for my son for Halloween.  I decorated it with the adorable ghost from the Stitched Spooky Ghost Die collection and then made a tag using stamps and dies from Open if You Dare.  So easy!

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!
