MCT Sneaks Day 3 - "Whoa Baby"

Hello! Today is day 3 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking the new Alpha Pack stamp set and Trio Stitched Banners. For my card today I started by stamping the card base with the new Grainy Wood background. {yes, woodgrain on a baby card...I'm addicted to this stamp! don't judge} For all my stamping I used pink pastel colorbox fluid chalk ink. It's really light, so a little hard to see in the pics. Sorry about that. I cut the 3x4 Jounal die...and used the baby carriage die from the Classy Girl Accessories set. I traced the opening on cardstock and glued my sequins. {My fave thing to do} :)
I cut the banner from the new Trio Stitched Banners dies. And I stamped my own greeting using the fabulous new Alpha Pack stamp sets! You NEED this set! :)

MCT Day 1 of Sneaks! 3 cards!

Hello! Welcome to day 1 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking 3 new items...The Grainy Wood Background, Fun Letter Background, and the Large Cloud Bubble Die. On this first card I used the Grainy Wood Background {stamped with soft brown shadow ink} and the Large Cloud Bubble Die. I used the 3x4 Journal die for my base for the scene.
I cut the sweet puppy with the Loyal Friends set. His face is also from that set. I made the grass with the Fun Stitched Edges dies. The greeting is from the Live Love Bark set. And here's my next card...
For this card I used the new Fun Letter Background. I inked it up with pale tomato, orange soda, and butter bar Hero Arts shadow inks. 
I cut the window with the 3 Stitched Stars dies. The greeting is from the My Teacher Rocks set. And here is my last card for today...
For this card I white heat embossed the Grainy Wood Background. I then sprayed it with picked raspberry and squeezed lemonade reinkers and water in mini misters.
I used the Large Cloud Bubble die to cut the piece for my greeting. I used the happy die from the Happy Thoughts set. The "for you" is also from the Happy Thoughts set. I finished it off with some sequins.

A card for a super boy...you can make him a card too!

Hello! I took a little break today from making sneaks for the MyCreativeTime release next week{which is super awesome by the way} to make a card for a little boy named Danny. I saw his story in a few different places online. Danny has an inoperable brain tumor and wants to receive cards...they make him smile. You can read his story HERE. I sure hope you'll consider sending him a card as well. I made this little super boy with the Create A Friend Cricut Cartridge. I cut him at 4 inches and gave him his cute face from the 1 1/8 Boy Mates faces from PeachyKeenStamps
I put him on a wobble so he wiggles/flies. The inside says, "Wishing Super Danny a super day!" I kept this really simple to make sure that "Super Danny" is the star of the card. :)

Again, you can read Danny's story HERE. Please PLEASE send him a card. :) 
Here's his address

Danny Nickerson
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA 02035


MCT Challenge

Hello! It's time for another MyCreativeTime challenge! This time we have the above photo/color palette to use as inspiration. So summery and fun! Here is my card...
I stamped the background with the Build A Chevy set in pale tomato, fresh peach, and green hills Hero Arts shadow inks. I cut the cone and scoops from watercolor paper using the Celebrate Good Times set. I colored the scoops with the same inks as the background. To finish, I added rock candy distress stickles to the scoops. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to play along and see more creations!

MCT Inspiration Wednesday "Hello"

Hello! It's Inspiration Wednesday at MyCreativeTime. Today I don't have a picture of my inspiration, I just wanted to make a background with masking and do a raised die cut greeting. I used the Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves Dies to cut masks from some acetate. I then created my background sponging on ink and masking as needed. {mask off the flowers after inking to add the leaves} I made the little dots using the Pretty Spring Wreaths set from MyCreativeTime. I used the following Hero Arts Shadow Inks on my card...Bubble Gum, Fresh Peach, Lemon Yellow, Mint Julep, and Passion Flower. 
For my greeting, I used the Hello die from the Speech Bubble Sentiments set. I first cut it from my masked background panel. I then cut it 7 more times from white cardstock and glued them all together with the die cut from the background panel on top. This way the greeting looks like it's floating off the panel. :) To finish it off, I added glossy accents for shine. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more projects. 

Have a great day!

A PeachyKeen Ornament Card

Hello! I hope you're having a nice Friday thus far. For my card today I used the new set from PeachyKeenStamps called Christmas Trees And Foliage for the ornament and the sprig of greens. I stamped the foliage with green hills shadow ink. I stamped the ornament and colored it with my prismacolor pencils. Then I colored over that with my Wink Of Stella glitter marker...and over that I added glossy accents. :)
I drew in the string and bow with a black pen. And for the card base, I stamped the Candy Stripe background from PeachyKeenStamps with bubble gum shadow ink. Pssst...the Candy Stripe Background is on sale. ;) 

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
♥ Nikki ♥
