My Creative Time ~ "Made In Minutes"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Made In Minutes" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make a project that takes about 20 minutes or less.


My card for you today is a Sympathy Card.  They can be so hard to make, so most of the time I like to keep them simple.  This is an A2 size card.  The cardstock is from Paper Trey Ink.  


The sentiment is from the MCT ~ Floral Sentiments.  And the little swoosh is from the MCT ~ You Are Fabulous.  I embossed them all with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and Clear ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder. The flowers and ribbon are from my stash.


Well that's it for me.  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!

My Creative Time ~ 33rd Stamp & Die Release : BLOG HOP

Hello everyone!  And welcome to the My Creative Time ~ 33rd Stamp & Die Release BLOG HOP!!!  You should have arrived here from Liz's blog.  If not, then make you sure head back to My Creative Time so that you can start at the beginning with Emma.  You definitely don't want to miss a thing!


For my project today, I am featuring three brand new sets:  Stitched Bees & Beehive Dies, Bee Happy and Surf's Up.


Ok, are you ready for this?  Guess what I used to make the flower petals for my pretty sunflower????  Yep, it's the surf board die from the brand new MCT ~ Surf's Up!!!  I also embossed each petal with one of the patterned stamps in the set.  I used Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and Clear ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder. For the center of the sunflower, I used one of the circle dies in the MCT ~ Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  The cardstock for the petals is from Paper Trey Ink.  And the patterned paper for the flower center is from the Bo Bunny ~ Double Dots collection.  For the flower stem, I used a wooden dowel and wrapped it with some fun ribbon from my stash.  The little jar is actually a recycled gravy jar.


I cut the super cute little bees with the brand new MCT ~ Stitched Bees & Beehive Dies and then stamped them with the co-ordinating stamps in the MCT ~ Bee Happy.  I colored them in with a yellow ~ Zig Marker and added some Star Dust ~ Stickles to their wings.  For a little dimension, I curled their wings to make it look like they are in motion.  I cut the label with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Die.  And the perfect sentiment is from the MCT ~ Bee Happy.  All of the ink is Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.


So what do you think?  Wouldn't this just brighten anyone's day?  I love it!  :)

My Creative Time ~ Day 4 Sneak Peeks : 33rd Stamp & Die Release

Hello everyone!  And welcome back to the 4th and final day of Sneak Peeks.  What a week don't you think? Today, we are showcasing 3 new sets:  Loyal Friends, My Kids Have Paws & Live, Love, Bark.  And I have 2 cards to share with you today - one is a little different and the other a bit more traditional.


By now, I'm sure many of you have seen just the cutest doggie projects ever.  But in case you don't have a furbaby at home, I thought I would show you a different way to use that dog house.  I know....right?!  Hee!  ;) This is an A2 size card.  All of the different colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  To cut the white piece in the background, I used the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die.


You can see here that I used the dog house die in the brand new MCT ~ Loyal Friends and I just tilted it to the right and now...it's an arrow.  How fun is that?!?!?  


Then, I used a die in the MCT ~ Happy Thoughts to cut out the "Happy" and then the "birthday" and heart stamps are from this set as well.  I cut the "43" using the number dies in the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die. The little "rd" is from the MCT ~ All Around Birthday Time.  The inks are Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink and Rose Bud ~ Memento Ink.


Of course I also had to make something more traditional for these sets, because they are just too fun!  This is also an A2 size card.  And all of the different colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.


I used the bone die in the MCT ~ Live, Love, Bark to cut this fun pile of bones and wrapped them with some hemp twine. The super cute little doggie sitting on top of the pile of bones is from the MCT ~ Loyal Friends. Both sentiments are also from this set.  And I used some Simple Stories ~ Enamel Dots to highlight the birthday greeting.


At the bottom, you can see that I used the MCT ~ Stitched Grass Die to cut the grass.  Then you can see the traditional use for the fun little doggie house from the MCT ~ Loyal Friends.

For the board on the left, I used Hero Arts Shadow Inks ~ Soft Purple, Green Hills and Pool. For the board on the right, I used Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks ~ Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry.  To cut the clouds, I used the MCT ~ Fly Away With Me Dies.  The "Surf's up!" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Surf's Up.  The ink is Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.


The "Have a great vacation!" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Sit Back & Relax.  It's hard to see, but for the sand - I added a little Clear ~ Wink of Stella.

My Creative Time ~ "Tag It Tuesday"

Hello everyone!  Today is another "Tag It Tuesday" with My Creative Time.  And since watercolor is the new craze, I thought I would give that a try too.   ;)


I used the MCT ~ Tag Dies to cut out my tag.  Then, I used the new Tim Holtz ~ Mini Distress Inks to do the watercoloring on my background.  To cut out my pretty little flowers, I used the MCT ~ Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies.  In the center, I added some Simple Stories ~ Enamel Dots.  And the perfect sentiment is from the MCT ~ Bloom Where You Are Planted.  Not bad for my first try at watercoloring don't ya think?

My Creative Time ~ "Whatever Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Whatever Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  It's a day when we make whatever we want.  So of course, I went with a rainbow!!!   ;)


I just love the way this card turned out!!  All of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  And the swirly blue patterned paper in the background is from my scraps drawer.  To make the card base, I used the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die and extended it to be longer and then folded that to make the card.


To make my super fun rainbow, I used the MCT ~ Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  I cut out each piece, taped them together in the back and then cut them in half to make the rainbow.  At the bottom, I used the MCT ~ Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies.  And of course, popped everything up with pop dots for dimension.


To make the center of the sun, I used the MCT ~ Stitched Circle Die.  And to make the rays for the sun, I used the geotag from the MCT ~ Never Be Lost.  The face is from the PKS ~ The Cornies Face Assortment. Then, in the upper right corner, I used the MCT ~ Square Stitched Goody Dies and the MCT ~ Treasured Moments for the sentiment.


Super cute I think...and hopefully enough to cheer up any one's day.  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!
