MCT-Fave Stamp Of The Month- Bonjour


Hello! It's time for Favorite Stamp Of The Month again at MyCreativeTime. This month it's the Springtime In Paris set. For my card, I started by die cutting a panel of watercolor paper with the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More dies. I then white heat embossed the Eiffel Tower and greeting from the Springtime In Paris set. I used distress inks and water to paint the scene. I wanted to bring in the pink of the patterned paper, so I added little dot flowers with a distress marker and went over them with a smidge of water. Easy peasy. :)

p.s. It's going to be quiet around here for a while, we're a Navy family, and it's time to move again. In fact, the packers come in the morning!  :)

If I come back as a zombie....


Hello! I am so excited for the new show Fear The Walking Dead that is starting tonight, so I made a zombie card today to celebrate it. :) I used the awesome Faceless Zombie Kids 2 set by PeachyKeenStamps. This set is only 5 bucks! If you want it, hurry because when it's gone, it's gone. I colored her with my Copics. I added dots and stripes to her shirt. The greeting is from a set that it no longer available, sorry. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies and the new Stitched Square Dies Inside And Out by MyCreativeTime. I blended Fog and Smoke SimonSaysStamp inks for the background. 

I hope you have a zombie-tastic evening! :)

I wheelie like you!


Hello! I made a card to play along in the current Lawnscaping Challenge. Here's my card...


I used the adorable Wheelie Like You stamp set and the Wheelie Like You Lawn Cuts dies. I used the wheel die to partially die cut, so it is all one piece. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig tool to stamp the wheel on the die cut piece.  I embossed the bottom with a dots embossing folder. I colored my hamster and wheel with Copics. I fussy cut out the hamster, and put him in his wheel. The sweet greeting is also from the Wheelie Like You set by Lawn Fawn. I blended some Sea Glass ink by SimonSaysStamp behind the wheel...and finished it off with some sequins. 

I hope you're having a great weekend. :)

♥ Nikki ♥
