You octopi my heart.


Hello! Here is a card I put together using a background I made with distress inks as "homework" for the Background Check class at OnlineCardClasses. The octopus and greeting are from the Beach Babies Digi set by PeachyKeenStamps. The cutest face ever is from the Sweet On You Face Assortment by PeachyKeenStamps. I colored the octopus with my Copics. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies, Stitched Oval Dies, and the Vintage Labels Dies all from MyCreativeTime

I hope you have an awesome Friday!

MCT Tutorial Thursday- Just a note


Hello! It's tutorial Thursday at MyCreativeTime. Today I have a little photo tutorial showing the making of my jar background using the My Thoughts Are With You set

1. Use the jar die to make a stamp out of fun foam. 
2. Stamp the jar in a random pattern to make the background. 
3. Use the jar stamp to add the image over the solid jars. Wonkily. ;)
4. Add greeting from It's All About You on circle over vellum circle. 


I used the Bunch Of Fun Circles dies for the circles. I finished it off by adding wink of stella to the jars, and a few sequins.

p.s. Forgot to say that I just use tape runner to stick my fun foam stamp to the acrylic block. When I'm done with it, I just toss it. Then I use an alcohol swab to get the sticky off the block. :) Works great, and cleans the ink off your block!

Just a gnote.


Hello! Today is day 2 of the Background Check class at OnlineCardClasses. I played along by masking a plaid background. I used hot lips, sunshine, jellybean, scuba, and wisteria inks from SimonSaysStamp. I stamped the sweet gnome from the You Gnome Me set by MyFavoriteThings and colored him with my Copics. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies and the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies by MyCreativeTime.  I love how bright and happy this turned out. :)

I hope you're having a great week so far!

Too hot! Hot Damn! Make a dragon wanna retire man!



So I was walking on my treadmill watching Uptown Funk on YouTube, and this card popped into my head. I finished up my miles, and then I made it happen. :) If you haven't heard Uptown Funk {live under a rock perhaps? ☺} you MUST watch/listen to it! It's the most positive and super fun song! And, if you're looking to get some exercise motivation, you need this on your playlist! :) Anyhoo, here is my super duper FUNKY dragon....

{click photo to enlarge} 

Is he funky, or is he FUNKY??? HAHA! I used the adorable Faceless Dragons Digis and Dragon Family Face Assortment from PeachyKeenStamps. His shades are from the Beach Babies Digi set by PeachyKeenStamps. I added the lyrics from Uptown Funk, and bam! My vision was realized. :) I colored him with my Copics. I added wink of stella to his wings, horns. and toes. I used the sakura glitter pen on his shades. I added glossy accents to the horns, shades, and toes. 

I hope you have a super FUNKY FRIDAY! And I hope this card put a big ole' smile on your face!

Just keep swimming...


Hello! I hope you're having a great week. For my card today I used this cute Mermaid SVG from MissKateCuttables. I cut her out of white cardstock with my Cricut Explore. I cut her out of white so I could color her with my Copics. After I colored her tail I went over it with squiggles with my lightest BV color to make "scales"...and then I also added rock candy stickles to her tail. I also added rock candy stickles to her top and coated that with glossy accents. I gave her a bow, and added wink of stella to that. Her incredibly sweet face is from the In The Garden 2 Face Assortment by PeachyKeenStamps. The greeting is from the Beach Babies Digi set by PeachyKeenStamps. She is on a Wobble so she wiggles and swims. :) I've used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies, Stitched Oval Dies, and the Vintage Labels Dies all by MyCreativeTime

Hello! It's What A Treat Wednesday at MyCreativeTime. I used the fabulous Stitched Lollipop Holder Die to make this treat for my hubby. I also used the new Stitched Starburst Dies and the Vintage Labels Dies for the greeting banner. The fishy and the greeting are from the You're A Great Catch set. I stamped the fish on patterned paper, and shaded with Copics.
