Thinking of you bird card ~ MCT Made In Minutes

Today, the My Creative Time team is sharing projects which were made in minutes.


Sentiment:  Thinking of you today and always.

For this card, I incorporated patterned paper for the background and solid blue paper for the topper.  The bird and the sentiment were stamped at the same time using the mini misti stamping tool.  The bird was simply colored with Copics.  The pieces were die-cut together when they would fit on the die-cut plate.  With a little twine and adhesive pearls, it was finished in less than thirty minutes.

Here is another look.


Supplies:  My Creative Time A Friend Like You, Lace Border Die and More Stitched Rectangular Dies;  Simon Says Stamp intense black ink for alcohol markers, Pink Paislee Moonstruck paper, mini misti, adhesive pearls, Copic markers B14, BG10, B01, YR0000 and twine.

Hop time ~ MCT 92nd edition release, sale and blog hop

Hi, it's Gaylynn here.  The My Creative Time 92nd Edition release, sale and blog hop has begun.
You may have arrived from Emily's blog.


Sentiment:  Welcome to the world little one!

This card was made from the bottle favor die.  I wanted to make a card with it, so after die-cutting, I trimmed the folds off.  This left a fun bottle shape, perfect for a baby card addition.  I made a heart accent from the negative heart area of a previous card.  I try to use up extra scrap pieces when I can.
Hearts and babies go together perfectly.

To the bride and groom.  Congratulations.

This is a fun wedding card featuring icons for the bride and groom.  I added a sentiment, lips, pearls, a mustache and a bow tie to the heart center.  It is always fun to do non-traditional wedding cards like this.  As an accent, I added a glitter scalloped heart frame.

Gold shimmer watercolor + variegated floral stamping

Today for Watercolor Wednesday, I am using gold watercolor for shimmer and also variegated stamping.



Sentiment:  You've made my day.

This card was made in two steps.  I first stamped the florals onto regular cardstock.  Solid stamps were used for this technique.  Variegated stamping was added in a lighter shade and then accenting in a darker shade.  The background panel was painted in gold watercolor with a shimmer look.  Everything was layered to finish.

The full article and tutorial are up on the Unity blog.
I also made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Wedding car ~ Day 3 MCT 92nd Edition Sneak Peeks

Hello.  The MCT team is sharing Day 3 sneak peeks of the 92nd Edition release.



Sentiment:
Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness.  Congratulations.

For this card I die-cut the car, the lace border and the sentiment.  I decided to make a silver glitter lace topper to include the sentiment.  And for the bride and groom's car, I used light gray, white and black paper pieces.  With a little foam tape, the car pops up.  This is easy to do with the amazing die-cuts in this release.

Baby Cuddles ~ Day 1 MCT 92nd Edition Sneak Peeks

Hi.  The MCT team is sharing Day 1 sneak peeks of the 92nd Edition release.




Sentiment:  Sending you lots of love and cuddles.

  Here is a sweet baby elephant gift card holder.  It was stamped and die-cut, along with a coordinating sentiment.  I used a pretty holder die-cut as well.  I wanted it to be neutral in green and ivory.  So much cuteness.
