My Creative Time ~ Day 4 Sneak Peeks : 31st Stamp & Die Release

Hello everyone!  Ok, here we are...Day 4 of Sneak Peeks for the My Creative Time ~ 31st Stamp & Die Release.  Fun!  Fun!  Fun!

For Day 4 of Sneak Peeks, we are all showcasing two new sets:  Springtime in Paris and And Then Some.


We all know that you can never have enough Thank You cards on hand, so I decided to do something different and make one in French.  :)   This is an A2 size card and all of the different colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  To make the background, I used the "Merci" stamp from the brand new MCT ~ Springtime in Paris.  


For the tag, I used the MCT ~ Tag Dies.  I cut the beautiful Eiffel Tower with a die in this brand new MCT ~ Springtime in Paris.  Then I used the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings to cut the smaller tag. And then I once again stamped "Merci".  The inks are Jet Black & Vermillion ~ Ranger Archival Inks.  I added some crinkle ribbon with a bow made from hemp twine.  And for a bit of bling, I added a heart gem to the smaller tag.


I decided to stay with the red, black and white theme for this next card too.  Such a striking color combo I think.  All of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  And the patterned paper in the background is from the DCWV ~ Forever & Always Stack.  


The "Congratulations" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Vintage Sentiments.  The "to the perfect couple" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Many Greetings.  I cut the top hat using the MCT ~ I'm A Lucky Girl.  The cute little dress is from the MCT ~ Girls' Night Out Stitched Dies.  The super cool "&" symbol is from the brand new MCT ~ And Then Some.  I used the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings to cut the small tag and for the "Mr. & Mrs." sentiment.  And I finished it off with a pretty white flower from my stash.

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Whatever Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make whatever we want!!  :)  We had a first birthday in our extended family this past week, so I made this sweet little layout.


These are 6x6 pages.  All of the patterned papers are from the Pebbles Inc ~ Special Delivery collection.  And the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  


The white background piece is cut with the MCT ~ 3x4 Stitched Journal Die.  (Note that I stretched it longer using Emma's fun technique with dies).  The cupcake is made with the MCT ~ Celebrate Good Times.  I cut the number 1 with my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  And the fun flame is cut with the MCT ~ Never Be Lost.  I added a fun little bow with some hemp twine.


I used the MCT ~ Square Stitched Goody Dies to make some photo spots.  And then I decorated those with some little hearts from the MCT ~ Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies.  The label is cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  And the sentiment is from the MCT ~ Gift Card Sentiments.


I cut the photo mat using the MCT ~ 4x4 Journal Die & More.  And at the top I used the MCT ~ Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies.


At the bottom, I used the MCT ~ Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies again.  Aren't they so cute?  Everything on both pages is adhered with pop dots for dimension.


Well my creative friends, that's it for me today.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I'm almost done being so super busy and will hopefully get back to my regularly scheduled crafting!!!  ;)    Have a great day everyone!

My Creative Time ~ "Inspiration Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Inspiration Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make a project using some kind of inspiration.  The inspiration could be a color palette, a movie, a picture, a view, anything at all really.  Wait until you see what I found!!!  LOL


Ok, you all know how much I love the colors of the rainbow right?  Can you believe that I actually found a rainbow pack of contact lens cases?!?!  How fun is that!!!  So using that as my inspiration, I made this fun rainbow card.


All of the different colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  I used the MCT ~ Stitched Hexy Dies to cut the colored pieces.  Then I used the small stitched circle die in the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit.  And I stamped those with the letters from the MCT ~ Anyday BINGO & Crossword.  I popped each of those up for a little dimension.  And then for the borders, I added some strips of bling that I had in my stash.


Here is a closer shot so that you can see all the beautiful stitching!  I just love Emma's dies!!!


Well that's it for me today.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I've been a little busy lately, so not much time for crafting.  I hope to see you all again really soon.  Have a great day everyone!!!
