Trio of Flowers


Here's the birthday card I made for my mom this year.  I made a frame using the My Creative Time MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies and added a banner to the bottom using a die from Papertrey Ink's Cloche Quarters.  The sentiment, as well as the plants in the center, are from PTI's Cloche Quarters:  Spring Fillers.  The other two plants are from Cloche Quarters:  Summer Fillers.

MCT Birthday Palooza!


It's Birthday Palooza with My Creative Time!  I made this happy birthday card by using the stencil from the A Sunny Hello Kit with some Tim Holtz Distress Inks to give my background a fun rainbow look.  I trimmed this with one of the Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out.  I then added "happy" from Happy Everything and stamped "birthday," also from this set, onto a banner made from one of the Stitched Decorative Banner Dies.  A few sequins finished off this card!

I made this card for a friend who could use a little encouragement.  The darling bike and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink's Pedal Pusher.  I trimmed some patterned paper with one of My Creative Time's More Stitched Edges Dies.  Hopefully this card will put a smile on my friend's face!

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!

MCT 89th Edition Release Sneak Peek #1

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.


Then on the inside of the card, I stamped "Thank You" from Hey There Little Lady.

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.
