My Creative Time ~ 32nd Edition Stamp & Die Release

Hello everyone!  And welcome to the My Creative Time ~ 32nd Edition Stamp & Die Release.  You should have arrived here from Liz's Blog, if not - then make sure you head back to My Creative Time so you can start at the beginning with Emma.  You definitely do not want to miss a thing!!!

For my project today, I am featuring the brand new Stripey Background, Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies and Live, Love Laugh & Be Happy.


As you can see, I branched out into something a little different today and made a Home Decor piece.  My sister moved back home to Arizona a few weeks back.  And since the last couple of years have been a little rough, I wanted to make an inspirational piece for her to put in her room.  All of the different elements have special meaning.  I absolutely LOVE how it turned out.  I think it's my most favorite gift I have ever made!!!


To start with, I used the MCT ~ Stripey Background in the upper left and lower right corners.  But I only stamped part of the background because I wanted to make them kinda look like piano keys.  The "Spread your wings and fly!" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy.  If you look closely, you can also see the little hearts in the corner.  I used the MCT ~ 4x4 Journal Die & More to cut those.


To cut the word "believe" I used the MCT ~ Lowercase Fun Dies.  I cut them in a soft gray cardstock from Paper Trey Ink.  I just wanted a "hint" of the word, kinda so you could see it, but it wasn't the focal point.


Next, and my favorite part, the beautiful beautiful butterflies.  I cut those with the smallest die in the MCT ~ Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies.  Now...the cool part...to get the perfect color (to match the wall color in her bedroom), I went to the paint store and grabbed a couple of those paint sample thingies.  That's how I got the graduated colors...I think they call that "ombre".  The tedious part...adding all of those tiny little pearls, but it was sooo worth it.


And the best part....my sister LOVED it!!!!   :)  Doesn't it match her room perfectly???  Love it!!!  Ok, now for the good stuff:

*****"Emma's Birthday Month FREEBIE"*****

Now, for my last Sneak Peek (and my most favorite!!)  This is an A2 size card and all of the cardstock is from Paper Trey Ink.  For those of you who are like me (not really that social media savvy) I decided to show you something a little different.  I used the # in the brand new MCT ~ Social Media Dies to make a fence.  How cool is that?!?!?  I just LOVE how this card turned out!!!


I cut the 2 layers of grass with the MCT ~ Stitched Grass Die.  Once again, the super cool fence is made with the MCT ~ Social Media Dies.  The pretty sunflowers are made with the MCT ~ Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. And the super pretty butterflies are made with the MCT ~ Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Die.


In the center of the flowers, I added a circle cut with the MCT ~ Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  The sentiment is from the MCT ~ Floral Sentiments.  And I added some pretty little pearls to the butterfly bodies and in the sentiment to highlight the "you".

My Creative Time ~ Day 3 Sneak Peeks : 32nd Stamp & Die Release

Hello everyone!  So what do you think of everything so far??  I know right?!?!  AWESOME!!!  Today is Day 3 of Sneak Peeks.  And we are all showcasing 3 new sets:  Anchors & Heart Dies, Make A Splash Die and Hey Sailor!


Since Memorial Day was a couple of days ago AND Father's Day is just around the corner AND my daddy was in the Navy...I just HAD to make this fun card for him!!!  All of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  And the fun patterned paper is from the Pink Paislee ~ Pen Pals collection.


To cut the kraft cardstock piece, I used the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die, but I cut it down a bit.  To cut the square piece on top of that, I used the MCT ~ 4x4 Journal Die & More.  I cut the waves using the brand new MCT ~ Make A Splash Die.  Above that, the super fun anchor and heart are cut with the brand new MCT ~ Anchors & Heart Die.  I added a bit of rope for a more realistic look.  The "I LOVE MY SAILOR!" sentiment is from the brand new MCT ~ Hey Sailor!.  And the "HAPPY FATHER'S DAY" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Lost At Sea.  The ink is Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.


For project #2, this is an A2 size card.  All of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  I used the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die for the background piece, but cut it down a bit.  I used the MCT ~ Make A Splash for all of the waves.  For a bit of fun, I added some Frosted Lace ~ Stickles to the water.  In the background, you can see the anchor using the MCT ~ Anchors & Heart Die.  I used the MCT ~ Fly Away With Me Dies for the clouds.  And the sentiment is from the MCT ~ Hey Sailor!


To make my life preserver, I used the MCT ~ Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  I wrapped some of  The Twinery ~ Maraschino Twine around it for the red parts.  And then for the rope around the edges, I used The Twinery ~ Charcoal Twine.


Totally loving the nautical theme aren't you?!?!?

Hello everyone!  Wasn't yesterday great???  Welcome back for Day 2 of Sneak Peeks.  Today we are all showcasing 2 new sets:  Lost At Sea & Stripey Background.


This is a 5x5 card.  The solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  And I used some fun shiny silver paper that my sweet friend and DT sister - Miss Kim sent me.  :)


For the fun background, I used the brand new MCT ~ Stripey Background and some Navy ~ Hero Arts Shadow Ink.  That square piece is cut using the MCT ~ 4x4 Journal Die & More.  The fun porthole, whale, water, and sentiments are all from the brand new MCT ~ Lost At Sea.  And to cut the speech bubble, I used the MCT ~ Stitched Round Speech Bubbles.  For a little bit of fun, I added some square brads to the porthole, added some Frosted Lace ~ Stickles to the water and tied a bow with some hemp twine.


Of course I can't just stop at one project!!!  I cut this tag using the MCT ~ Tag Dies.  Once again, the porthole, the lighthouse and all the sentiments are from the brand new MCT ~ Lost At Sea.  The label at the bottom is cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  And the small tag is cut with the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Dies.  To finish it off, I added some more brads to the porthole, and added some seam binding ribbon and tied a bow with some hemp twine.

My Creative Time ~ Day 1 Sneak Peeks : 32nd Stamp & Die Release

Hello everyone!  It's time for Day 1 of Sneak Peeks for the My Creative Time ~ 32nd Stamp & Die Release. For those of you who may be new to this, it's when Emma and the Design Team show you some fabulous Sneak Peeks of all the items in the new release.  Then, on Friday, when the release goes live, we have a super terrific Blog Hop.  Are you all ready for some fun???  Let's get this party started!!!

For Day 1 of Sneak Peeks, we are all showcasing three new sets: Speech Bubble Sentiments, Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, and Build a Scripty & Watercolor Background.  And of course everything is just so much fun - I had to make 3 projects!!!


This is an A2 size card.  The black and the white cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  The sparkly silver paper for the wedding rings is from the DCWV ~ The Twinkle Glintz Stack.  And at the top, I used some vellum for the word bubble.


For the background, I used the brand new MCT ~ Build A Scripty & Watercolor Background.  I embossed it with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and Clear ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder.  At the top, I used the brand new MCT ~ Speech Bubble Sentiments for the word bubble, the "you are" and the "lucky to have each other." sentiment.


To cut the wedding rings, I used the brand new MCT ~ Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  To differentiate between the two rings, I added some pretty bling to the bride's ring.  Then for a little pop of color, I added a pretty red rose from my stash.


This is also an A2 size card.  The card base is made with Paper Trey Ink cardstock.  And all of the other fun patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Hip Hip Hooray collection.


The fun scalloped shape in the background and the "hello" are from the MCT ~ Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. The labels are cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  The "birthday boy!" sentiment is also from the MCT ~ Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  The balloons are cut with the MCT ~ Stitched Party Dies.  I added some bows with hemp twine and a little bling to the sentiment.


Lastly, I cut the tag using the MCT ~ Tag Dies.  I stamped the background with the MCT ~ Build A Scripty & Watercolor Background.  The ink for that is Soft Granite ~ Hero Arts Shadow Ink.  The "you are" and "appreciated!" are from the MCT ~ Speech Bubble Sentiments.  The label is cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  To finish it off, I used a bit of seam binding ribbon, hemp twine and a pretty red rose.


I hope you like my 3 projects.  I think you are really going to LOVE these sets!!!    :)

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Thrifty Thursday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make a project using our scraps or other recycled materials.  


This is a standard A2 size card.  All of the different colors of cardstock are from my Paper Trey Ink scraps drawer...woot woot!  I cut this fun nurses hat using my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.


I cut the letters for "congrats" using the MCT ~ Lowercase Fun Dies.  And then up at the top, I made a tag and added a sentiment using the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings.  I added a simple bow with some hemp twine and that's it!

My Creative Time ~ "Whatever Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Whatever Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make whatever we want.  Hee!  It's already graduation time here in Arizona, so I have a fun graduation card to share with you today.


Isn't this fun?  I cut this card using my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  I love that you can easily choose the paper colors based on the particular school colors!  This is an A2 size card and all of the papers are from Paper Trey Ink.


On the inside, I created this fun graduation message using the MCT ~ Here's Lookin' At You & the MCT ~ Follow Your Dreams.  And of course, it wouldn't be a graduation card without a little money!!!  So I used the MCT ~ Stitched Gift Card Pocket Die.  Isn't it perfect?!?  Super simple and easy to mass produce if you needed to. 


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 tomorrow.  Have a great day everyone!
