My Creative Time 75th Edition Release Blog Hop!!


Hello friends!!  Today we are showcasing the brand spanking new release from My Creative Time.

You should have arrived from the very talented Miss Kendra  . But if you got lost along the way, please visit HERE for the complete line up!! All the fun giveaway information will be at the bottom of this post!


This release consists of three amazing die sets which are perfect for all those up-coming "LOVE" cards you'll be making! Actually these dies can be used for so much more than your Valentines cards. Think anniversary, birthday and thinking of you cards!  So versatile!

I've made a couple of projects for you today using the new More Scalloped Heart Dies.  Let's check them out!!!



I decided to use a black card base, something I RARELY do but wow, did it ever make the pink cardstock pop off the page!!  These dies can be cut in so many different ways. Here, I used both the scalloped die and the co-ordinating stitched die to make a heart frame then just layered everything together and on top of each other. That beautiful "love" die cut is also in this set!! I partially inked up part of a sentiment from the Baked With Love stamp set to complete the look!

My second card uses the dies more like they were intended. To be layered.  I had a panel of cardstock that I had did a little watercolour on just laying on my desk so I thought what better way to use!  I used the largest scalloped die on that piece.


I used the stitched heart that layers perfectly and cut a piece of white cardstock.  I had enough of the watercoloured paper left to cut the sentiment out as well.  The super sweet mixer comes from the Mixed Just for You stamp set. I also masked off a portion of one of the sentiments in this set as well!

Before placing that beautiful heart on the card base, I added a strip of patterned paper to give some contrast.


I hope you enjoyed my creations using this fab die set! I know I had a blast making these cards and know that this set will be a staple in my craft room!!

Now onto the fun stuff!!

MCT 75th Edition Sneak Peek #3

Hello and welcome!!  Today I'd love to show you one of three die sets being release tomorrow from My Creative Time!!  This is an incredible release!! Keep reading for all the details on how you can win this die set!!

Today we are showing off the new Cute Heart Tag Die. Can you say unique??  This die set has so many possibilities!  Let's have a peak at my project...

I didn't think too much "outside the box" with this card.  I simply made the tag as intended out of white cardstock, and die cutting the layering pieces with some patterned paper.


That cute little girl image comes from the You're A Hit Valentine stamp set, which is actually ON SALE!!  I coloured her with a combination of Copic markers and Promarkers. And of course I just had to pop her up with some foam adhesive!  When you open the tiny little heart flap, it reveals the sentiment which comes from the I Adore You Kit, which I'm so sorry to say, has been sold out.


I made the card base out of the XOXO Border Dies, which were sneaked yesterday and are AWESOME!!  I simply cut two panels and adhered them together with Scor-Tape.

Before placing my tag on the front of the card, I adhered one of the partial hearts on the inside and finished off the sentiment.


isn't the detail of those border dies incredible?!?  I added some lace ribbon and twine to the top of my tag and foam mounted it on the base.  I added a little sparkle with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay pen on the heart, the polka dots on the dress and the bows in her hair. And that's my finished card!!

Made in Minutes with My Creative Time

Good morning, friends!!  Today, I'm sharing a not one, but TWO cards!!  This post shows just how easy it is to create multiple cards, quickly! Or one card, even quicker :)

I started by coming up with a simple layout that could be stamped at once. The Misti comes in super handy for this!


The floral image is from the sweet stamp and die set,  Hey There Little Lady.  The sentiment is from the Create Stamp and Die Set.  If you are new to My Creative Time products, almost every stamp set comes with co-ordinating dies!!!!

I stamped one panel with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the other with Versafine Black Onyx ink.


I used Copic markers and coloured pencils for some super simple colouring!!  These are meant to be quick, right??  When it came to putting the cards together, I did assembly line style.  I stamped both, I coloured both, I trimmed both and adhered everything at the same time.


To add a little more interest, I trimmed down the right side about 1/2 inch.  This actually creates a bit of depth and dimension without actually adding foam adhesive!!  Next, now this part did take the longest, was the die cutting of the word die.  It didn't actually have to take this long but instead of using foam adhesive to mount the "create", I cut the die repeatedly out of white cardstock to add the dimension.


I got all my elements together and adhered everything at once!


These two cards took about half an hour!! Here's a look at the completed projects!!





Thank you so, so much for stopping by today! I appreciate your visits more than you know!

Have a great day!!

Laurie
