MCT Tag It Tuesday


It's Tag It Tuesday with My Creative Time!  The new butterfly dies from the Amazing Things set are so pretty; I just had to use a couple of them on a birthday tag!  I created the tag using the Chunky Stitched Tag Dies and then used one of the More Stitched Edges Dies to make a little area for the sentiment, which is from Wow! So Many Candles.  A few sequins finished off this tag!

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 89th Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have such a fun release for you this month!  We are kicking it off with two fabulous new sets:  A Friend Like You and Floating Cloud Dies!


Floating Cloud Dies is a die set that includes two different cloud edge dies, which I used on the background of my card.  It also includes a couple of actual cloud dies!  This is going to be a very useful set!  To give my cloudy sky a border, I trimmed it with one of the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies.

A Friend Like You contains stamps of 3 different birds, with coordinating dies, along with 6 great sentiments!  There are also a couple of tree branch dies!  Today I  used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to color one of the birds.  I chose the "a little note to say.." sentiment.

Tiger Birthday


Another birthday card for a student to share today!  This one is for a girl who loves black and turquoise, and her favorite animal is a tiger (she was born in the year of the tiger).  I found this cute die cut in the Cricut Jungle Chic cartridge.  The sentiment is from My Creative Time's Wow! So Many Candles, and I stamped it upon a die cut made with one of the Fun Speech Bubbles dies.  For the background, I used one of the MCT MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies, run through the Vagabond with the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls Embossing Folder.

Tea Thank You


One of my former students gave me a wonderful assortment of teas from DAVIDsTEA, and I knew I had the perfect stamp sets for making a thank you note!  Papertrey Ink's Tea for Two has the adorable teapot stamp, and Tea for Two Collection contains the coordinating die.  Tea for Two Additions contains the teacup and darling tag stamps.  For the background, I used a My Creative Time Stitched Postage Frame Die.

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 few of them for making a card today.  To make my ring, I used the More Stitched Circle Dies.  For the heart, I used a die from 100% Sweetness, which is retired, but there are MANY more MCT heart dies that can be used in its place.  The little bitty hearts were made with dies from 4x4 Journal Die + More.  "Thanks" was made with one of the Thank You & Frame Dies.  I had some paper that I had watercolored for another project and ended up not using, and it ended up working great for the hearts!  Definitely made this a quick project!

Wedding Card!


My friends just got married, and I had fun making this wedding card for them!  I embossed the background using the My Creative Time Stitched Hearts Background Die.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Just a Kiss.  The cute little cake, which I watercolored with some Tim Holtz Distress Inks, is from the MCT Wishing You Both the Best stamp and die set, and I backed it with some polka-dot vellum cut with one of MCT's Bunch of Stitched Doily Dies.

MCT I Need a Favor


It's I Need a Favor with My Creative Time!  There are so many MCT favor dies, and the gift card dies work great too, if you want to give out small Starbucks cards or cards to a local candy store.  I thought that could be fun for our Easter gathering this year! For this project, I used the Pretty Gift Card Holder Die.  This is a great die for making a quick project.  I decorated it with some grass made with the Stitched Grass Die.  Then I pulled out the new Basket Tag Dies set for the bunny and the little frame for my sentiment.  The sentiment is from Basket Tag Sentiments.

The Bunny Lollipop Holder Die is just the cutest!!!  It's very easy to mass produce for your Easter festivities.  It comes with dies for the nose, eyes, and eyebrows, but you can change it up however you want.  Since it cuts the lines for the insides of the ears, it was easy to make those in pink, and I decided to use googly eyes this time!  I also added the perfect little sentiment from Teeny Tags Holiday, stamped onto a die cut made with the Teeny Tag Layering Dies.

MCT Birthday Palooza


It's Birthday Palooza with My Creative Time!  I love this day, because it seems like I'm ALWAYS making birthday cards!  This one is for a boy in my class whose birthday is this week.  I had the idea to make a scene with a birthday whale!  It took a lot of different MCT sets:  the whale and the sentiment are from Get Whale Soon, the party hat is from Tweet Me and Fun Tweet Me Dies, the hook is from You're a Great Catch, and the cupcake is from Mixed Just for You.  I made the circle border and the shape of the card itself with some of the More Stitched Circle Dies.  A little Tim Holtz Distress Ink made the perfect "sea" background!

Birthday Slider Card




I pulled out an older die set to make this card:  the Papertrey Ink Movers & Shakers:  Sliders.  I haven't made an interactive card in a while, and they are always so fun for the recipient!    I made the green base for the slider with one of My Creative Time's MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies and then decorated it with a cupcake from MCT's Celebration Tags and butterflies from MCT's Mini Butterfly Dies.


When you pull the tab, you see the sentiment!  All of the stamps I used are from PTI's Movers & Shakers Sentiments.

MCT Tag It Tuesday


It's Tag It Tuesday with My Creative Time!  I'm just loving the new Celebration Tags set, and I had to pull it out again today!  This time I made a tag with it, but I again made a "smooshed" rainbow watercolor background, because I just love how it makes that cupcake pop! I used every single one of the dies in the set, along with the stamped sprinkles and one of the sentiments.  This really is a great set for making a quick and adorable birthday tag!

MCT Just Cards


It's Just Cards Day with My Creative Time, a day to share some fun cards!  I got a little bit inky making this one.  I started by ink blending some Tim Holtz Distress Inks on some Strathmore Bristol Cardstock and then die cut "hello," using the Big Hello die and a few envelopes, using the Signed, Sealed and Delivered set.  To the card base, I added a strip of patterned paper that I trimmed with one of the More Stitched Edges dies.  I think it all came together pretty nicely!

MCT Manly Monday


It's Manly Monday with My Creative Time! For my project today, I made a Valentine.  I tried to give it a little bit of a masculine twist with the colors and the argyle patterned paper, which I trimmed with one of the MCT Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out.  The heart was cut with a die from You + Me, and the sentiment is also from there.  The heart stamps are from A Sloth Holiday.  I die cut the cute little dog with a die from Loyal Friends, and the envelope is from Signed, Sealed and Delivered.

Birdy Birthday


I had fun making this birthday card with a Cricut cut from the Straight from the Nest cartridge.  I used one of the My Creative Time More Stitched Edges Dies to make the grass.  The sentiment is also by MCT, from the Tweet Me stamp set.  I stamped it onto a die cut made with the Papertrey Ink Double Ended Banner Die.  Some sequins finished off this card!

Heart Doily Dies includes three beautiful dies and I used two of them for my card today.  As you can see, they aren't just for Valentine's Day projects.  They can dress up a thank you note, or a birthday card, a love note...  Since I needed to make a thank you note, I just cut two of them and added a "thanks" die cut that I made with one of the Mini Greeting Dies.  I thought that some fun patterned paper in the background and a few sequins were the perfect touches to finish off this card!

MCT 3D Wednesday


I't 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time!  Now that I've put away all of my Christmas decorations, my house is looking a little bare, so I decided to make a fun Valentine's Day bouquet!  I used both the Small Stitched Pinwheel and the Medium Stitched Pinwheel Dies.  The cute little hearts in the centers were made with the Pinwheel Centers Dies.  After assembling the pinwheels, I hot glued them to some bamboo skewers that I picked up at Target.  I popped them into a vase, and it was finished!

Thanks for Brightening my Day!


Here's another of the thank you notes I made for Christmas presents this year.  I used the Papertrey Ink Lighten Up stamps and dies.  By running the dies through my Vagabond multiple times with a variety of colors of cardstock, I ended up with enough different lamp bases and lampshades to make 6 different cards!  Some fun striped patterned paper worked great to ground the lamps.

I am so excited for this new set!  I love mailing my handmade cards, and this set contains so many fun sentiments for decorating the envelopes!  But, there is also the cutest little mailbox image that I used for the birthday card I'm sharing today!  I stamped it onto Strathmore Bristol cardstock and colored it with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  I then mounted it onto a little background that I die cut using one of the Stitched Postage Frame Dies.  The sentiment is from Thanks for the Lift, and I stamped it onto a die cut that I made with one of the Vintage Stitched Label Dies.

Below you can see how adorable one of the sentiments from Signed, Sealed and Delivered looks when stamped on an envelope!

MCT Gift Card Giving


Happy New Year!  We are starting a new segment on My Creative Time called Gift Card Giving!  There are so many adorable MCT gift card dies, which I just love, since I find myself giving gift cards often!  Today I used the Pretty Gift Card Holder.  I decorated it with a cute little cake made with the Baby Cake Die and a sentiment from Time to Celebrate!  A few sequins finished it off.  So quick and easy!
