My Creative Time ~ Day 4 of Sneak Peeks

Hello everyone!  It's Day 4 of Sneak Peeks for the My Creative Time ~ 37th Edition Stamp & Die Release. I hope you have had a super fabulous week full of creativity!!!

For Day 4 of Sneak Peeks, we are showcasing the brand new set:  Oh Deer.


I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned this before, but I used to hate making tags. But that was BEFORE I found Emma!!!  ;)  To make this tag I used the MCT ~ Tag Dies and MCT ~ Tag Die Layers.  I also made it a little shorter than normal to change things up a bit.  The solid colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  And the pretty patterned paper is from the Authentique ~ Faith collection.  The "thank you" is from the MCT ~ Sports Sentiments.  And the "You're such a deer" sentiment is from the brand new MCT ~ Oh Deer.  The ink is Coffee ~ Ranger Archival Ink.  I added some fun burlap ribbon and tied a bow with hemp twine.  Super simple and easy!

****SNEAK PEEK GIVEAWAY*****

My Creative Time ~ Day 3 of Sneak Peeks

Hello everyone!  It's time for Day 3 of Sneak Peeks for the My Creative Time ~ 37th Edition Stamp & Die Release.  For today I decided to do something a little different...

For Day 3 of Sneak Peeks, we are showcasing the brand new set:  Winter Cheer.


Ok, so you might be thinking "where's the winter cheer"?  LOL  Well, that's the something different I mentioned. I wanted to show you how to use a themed set in a different way.  :)  This is an A2 size card.  The mats are cut with the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More.  The ribbons and the heart in the center of the card are cut with dies in the brand new MCT ~ Winter Cheer.  Technically they are for something else (you'll have to wait and see!!!) but I decided to use these dies in a unique way to give you a different look.  The sentiment at the bottom is from the brand new MCT ~ Seasonal Greetings (showcased earlier this week).  And the arrow at the top is from the MCT ~ Stitched Capture Frame & Arrow Die.  The solid colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is from the MAMBI ~ Breast Cancer Support stack.  I finished it off with some gems and a bow made of hemp twine

My Creative Time ~ Day 1 Sneak Peeks

Hello everyone!  It's Day 1 of Sneak Peeks for the My Creative Time ~ 37th Edition Stamp & Die Release! It's gonna be a great week, so let's get started.

For Day 1 of Sneak Peeks, we are all showcasing 2 brand new sets:  Whimsical Trees & Seasonal Greetings.


I know when it comes to giving gift cards, most people either love it or hate it.  Well, I'm one of the ones who loves it...especially when you can make them look so fun!!!  This is cut with the MCT ~ Embossed Gift Card Holder Die and the paper is from the Authentique ~ Faith collection.  To decorate the front, I used the brand new MCT ~ Whimsical Trees.  To stamp the trees in the background, I overlapped them using Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink and Bamboo Leaves ~ Memento Ink.  The fun paper for the tree that I cut is from the  Echo Park ~ Home For The Holidays collection.  The sentiment is from the brand new MCT ~ Seasonal Greetings.  I added a bow at the bottom with some hemp twine.  And all of the fun hearts are cut with a little die in the MCT ~ Seasonal Greetings.  That's it super simple, but fun too.

My Creative Time ~ "Made In Minutes"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Made In Minutes" with My Creative Time.  This is when we make a quick and easy project in 20 minutes or less.


Sympathy cards are always hard and this one was for a furbaby.  This is an A2 size card.  The card base is from Papertrey Ink and the pretty patterned paper is from the Authentique ~ Faith collection.  I used the largest die in the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More for the background.


The heart is from the MCT ~ 100% Sweetness.  The sentiment and the paws are from the MCT ~ Live, Love, Bark.  The ink is Coffee ~ Ranger Archival Ink.  I added a couple of little flowers from my stash.


And on the inside, this sentiment is also from the MCT ~ Live, Love, Bark.


That's it...super quick and simple.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  Have a great week everyone!  I will see you all again soon with some fun pictures of my next Disneyland adventure!!!  ;)  Has anyone guessed what my Disney Halloween costume is going to be??????

My Creative Time ~ "Stamp/Die of the Month"

Hello everyone! Guess what???  BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND --  "My Favorite Stamp/Die of the Month"! Today we are featuring one of our FAVORITE dies "Stitched Restroom Peeps".  If you have been waiting to get this set, you can do so now HERE at a sale price. Yep, this set will be on sale for the entire month of October! The sale will end on Oct. 31st at 12:00 am PST.  


Also, for a bit of inspiration, the Design Team is using the following photo (from Pottery Barn) for a bit of inspiration.


For my card today, I decided to use the colors in the photo for inspiration.  Now since I'm from Arizona, I can't really think of these as San Francisco Giant colors...LOL.  So I decided to use the orange, green and brown and think of them as Fall colors.  Sounds much better don't ya think?  Hee!


This is a standard A2 size card.  The solid colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  And all of the fun patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Friendly Forest collection.  I used the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More to cut the two mat pieces.


The main attraction of course are the super cute MCT ~ Stitched Restroom Peeps.  Behind them, you can see that I used the MCT ~ Stitched Doily Die (one of my faves!).  


At the bottom of the card, I used the small leaf die in the MCT ~ Piles of Smiles.  And then for my sentiment, I used a combination of stamps and die from the MCT ~ A Thankful Heart.


A perfect fall card for your sweetie. Hope you like it.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  And don't forget to hop on over to the store to snatch these cuties up while they're on sale.  Have a great day everyone!  I will see you all again soon.

My Creative Time ~ "What a Treat Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  And welcome to another "What a Treat Wednesday" with My Creative Time!  Yay...it's finally October!!!  What better way to start out this month than with a little Halloween Treat!!!  ;)


My "treat bag" is just a simple brown paper lunch bag.  I cut off some excess at the top so that it would fit the size of my tag better.  To cut my tag, I used the MCT ~ Tag Dies and the MCT ~ Tag Die Layers.  The black cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.  The fun patterned orange paper is from the Recollections ~ Halloween Basics collection.


To cut out the circular opening, I used one of the circle dies in the MCT ~ Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  Inside, I used a fun clear treat holder and inside that - I added some fun sequins and beads.  Around the outside, I added some fun Trendy Twine ~ Orange Licorice twine.  At the top, the "Happy Halloween" and little bat are from the MCT ~ Wicked Fun Dies, as is the little spider in the lower right.  (The big spider in the lower left is actually part of the patterned paper).  To finish it off, I added some white crinkle ribbon and a bow with black hemp twine.


Well that's it for me today.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a great day everyone!

ps....It's officially just a little more than 2 weeks until my next visit to Disneyland with my sister.  We are going to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.  Any guesses yet on our costumes???  Last year we were Minnie & Mickey.  This year....?????????
