Birthday Cake Card ~ MCT Birthday Palooza

Today, the My Creative Time team is sharing birthday projects.  Here is a birthday cake card with die-cuts and stamping.


Sentiment: Happy birthday to you.

For this card, my intention was for it to be a masculine card.  But then came the polka dots, flower trim and adhesive gems.  I gave in to the urge to make it girly.  :)

I used distress ink around the cake and paper trimmings.  Then, of course, added embellishments and twine.

Supplies:  My Creative Time Birthday Cake DieTime To Celebrate and Metal Adaptor Plate; Sizzix Big Shot, Ranger archival ink and distress ink; adhesive gems, twine and My Mind's Eye paper.

Have a great day.

Handmade patterned paper~ 3 watercolor floral cards from 1 panel.

For Watercolor Wednesday and I made three floral watercolor cards from one sheet of stamping.  This is a fun way to create your own watercolor patterned paper designs.


Sentiments:
You deserve something beautiful.
Happiness.
You spread love & kindness wherever you go.

Sometimes I like to make my own patterned paper.  For these cards, I made a half sheet of floral watercolor flowers with embossed stamping.  It was easy to watercolor, trim and then assemble for three different card designs.


For this card, I trimmed for an A2 size background panel.


A diagonal strip of the florals was added to a wider sentiment panel for this design.


I used the diagonal corners to create this design, with the sentiment in the center.

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

Birthday or anniversary hearts card. ~ MCT Made In Minutes

Today, the My Creative Time team is sharing "made in minutes" projects.
I decided to make use of a few leftover die-cut pieces to speed up the card making process.


Sentiment:  Wishing you a year of happiness & love.

This one was made in less than ten minutes.  I had a leftover kraft color trim panel and hearts in vellum and white.  I die-cut some leaves and a label panel and added a stamped sentiment.
This card is great for a birthday or anniversary, I think.

Supplies:  My Creative Time Vintage Stitched Label Dies, More Scalloped Heart Dies, More Stitched Edges, Stitched Sweathearts & XOXO Dies, Summer Vibes, cardstock, vellum and adhesive gems.

Christmas holiday believe handmade gift tag.

Today, the My Creative Time team is sharing various holiday projects.
I decided to make another Christmas gift tag, because you can never have too many of those.


Sentiment:  Merry Christmas.  Believe.

This was easy to do.  I just die-cut tags in layers, cut the embellishments and stamped a tiny sentiment.  Red adhesive gems added the perfect finish.
The thing that I like most about creating with MCT is the ease of layering the die-cuts that Emma creates and the selection of clear stamps that she offers.

Supplies:  My Creative Time Holiday Tags Stamp & Die Set, Chunky Stitched Tag Dies, Teeny Tag Layering Dies, Teeny Tag Holidays, cardstock and adhesive gems.
