MCT 75th Edition Release Blog Hop & Sale! Love is in the air.....

Hello, it's Gaylynn here for the My Creative Time 75th Edition release, blog hop and sale.


Sentiment:  Congrats

For this card, I made  little heart shaker by combining two of the heart dies and layering My Mind's Eye papers and clear cardstock.  I added sequins, a congrats die-cut and tan hemp to embellish the card.  This kind of card is great for any congratulations theme, but especially for love occasions like engagement, wedding or even a bridal shower.  

My daughter just got engaged, so this little lovely is going out to her.  We are so excited for her.

MCT products used for today's project:
More Scalloped Heart Dies
XOXO Border Dies
Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More

Here is a look at the new releases that I used on today's card.

Birthday cake and flowers pastel handmade card.

This is a soft and sweet handmade birthday card featuring a pastel birthday cake with flowers.


Sentiment:  Wishing a very special person a very special birthday.

For this card, I used Copic markers to softly color the cake and flowers.  Then I framed the image using distress ink with masking.  I added a die-cut scalloped edge trimming and clear droplets for accents.

Here is a quick video tutorial on how this card comes together.

MCT 75th Edition Sneak Peek #2 ~ XOXO Border Dies

Today, I am sharing a sneak peek at another of the My Creative Time 75th Edition new releases.
This is from the die set releasing this Friday, January 19, 2018.
The set is called XOXO Border Dies.


Sentiment:  I love you.

I wanted a masculine love card, and so I left this without my usual bling and twine.  I left it simply layered with the xoxo, heart and love dies.  It was stamped a bit and then gold embossed.  The addition of the gold glitter paper for the love die was bling enough.

MCT Products used:
XOXO Border Dies (releasing 1-19-18)
More Stitched Scallop Dies (releasing 1-19-18)


Here is my card a little closer.
