MCT Sneaks Day 1

Hello! It's day 1 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking 2 new sets...Whimsical Trees and Seasonal Greetings. I've used both sets on this sympathy card. I stamped and gold embossed the trees from Whimsical Trees on patterned paper from the Indian Summer collection by Basic Grey {OLD lol}. I also gold heat embossed the greeting from Seasonal Greetings. Finished it off with some gold sequins.

MCT Thrifty Thursday

Hi! It's Thrifty Thursday at MyCreativeTime. My card today uses the alternate background I made for THIS card. And sticking with the thrifty-ness...I also recycled my design from that card. {I just flipped it} On with the deets... I stamped the background with the grid from the Get Schooled set with soft granite shadow ink. I stamped over that with the stars from the Trick Or Treat set with neon orange Hero Arts ink. I used the same inks to stamp the chevrons with the Build A Chevy set and cut it out with the Bunch Of Fun Circles dies. 
I made the sunglasses with the die from the What's Growing On set. I cut it out 5 times and glued them together. I made "glass" part by coloring the back of vellum with a black marker. It's looks cool in real life. The greeting is from the Treasured Moments set. I finished it off with sequins.

Happy birthday, Monster! :)

Hello! Today I played with brand spankin' new PeachyKeen goodness! :) I used my silhouette to cut out the new Blue Monster Peachy Pieces. I cut him out in white, and inked him up with tumbled glass, broken china, salty ocean, and chipped sapphire distress inks. I used antique linen distress ink for his arms and legs. The adorable face is from the new Squee Face Assortment. So cute! I ♥ him! 
I stamped my sky with the fabulous Cloudy Day Background from PeachyKeenStamps with soft pool Hero Arts shadow ink. I free hand cut the hill and inked it with lime green shadow ink. I combined 2 sets to make the greeting. I used the Sentiments For September 2014 set for the "happy birthday"...and the "monster!" is from the August 2014 set.

MCT Tag It Tuesday

Hello! It's Tag It Tuesday at MyCreativeTime. Today we have the above photo and color combo for inspiration. As usual, I've put my tag on a card. :) Here it is...
Bright enough for ya? :) I started by making my background. I made it by stamping the grid pattern from the Get Schooled set with soft granite shadow ink. I stamped over that with the trio of stars from the Trick Or Treat set using lime green shadow ink. I stamped "Ride it and Fly it" repeatedly with lime green and neon orange Hero Arts inks. I then used the Stitched Round Tab, Arrow, And Tag Die to cut it out.
I stamped the "if the broom fits" from the Trick Or Treat set with charcoal shadow ink. I used the circle from the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies. The neon orange strip is a tag cut in half from the Tag Layers dies {inked with neon orange ink}. And the broom is from the Wicked Fun Dies. To finish it off, I added wink of stella to the broom...and of course, some sequins. :)

MCT Made In Minutes

Hello. It's Made In Minutes Monday at MyCreativeTime. I made this card for Emma's sister who lost her sweet dog Raider last week. :( Breaks my heart to hear of someone losing a furry baby. 
I made the card base and layer with the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More dies. I die cut the window for the sequins with the Live Love Bark set. 
I stamped the name on the banner from the Stitched Vintage Label Dies using the Alpha Pack

p.s. The most time consuming part about this card was gluing down the sequins. You could make it much faster by substituting some pretty patterned paper instead. :)

MCT Designer Challenge


Hello! It's time for another Designer Challenge at MyCreativeTime! This time you can use either the photo above or the sketch below {or both!} as your inspiration. :)


I chose to use the photo inspiration. Here is my card...


I used the Rectangular Stitched Frames And More set for my card base and layer. I made the circle for my moon with the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies. Then my favorite part, gluing the sequins. :)


The bats and the greeting are from the Wicked Fun Dies set. I added wink of stella glitter pen to the bats, and then coated them with glossy accents.
