Basket stamps and dies ~ MCT 88th Edition Sale and Blog Hop

Hello, Gaylynn here.  It is the My Creative Time 88th Edition release, sale and blog hop.
You may have arrived from Emily's blog.


Sentiment:  No bunny is as great as you..

This basket card was created with the newest stamps, dies and sentiments.  I love the little basket, the basket background and the coordinating elements.  The eggs were die-cut from marbled patterned paper.  I heat embossed the basket pattern in copper color, then I layered cardstock.  Most of the trimmings were distressed.  I made this for Easter, but it can be used for any occasion, just by switching out the elements and sentiments.

Spring birdies card + Inktense watercolor pencils.

For today's Watercolor Wednesday, I am sharing a little watercolor pencil color featuring the cutest little birdies.


Sentiment:  We are cheering you on.

For this card, I created a background by adding color and water from the watercolor pencil tips and then lightly blending in three colors.  I did the same for the birds and then fussy cut them out to make a little scene over the background.  As an added accent, I made a sentiment flag.

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

Easter Basket Peep ~ Day 2 MCT 88th Edition Sneak Peeks

Hello.  The MCT team is sharing Day 2 sneak peeks of the 88th Edition release.


Sentiment:  Happy Easter to my favorite peep!

Here is a sweet Easter card featuring a new basket with coordinating stamps, dies and sentiments.   I like that it has a basket stamp background, which I heat embossed.  This basket was accented with opaque white ink to give it a distressed look.  The peep, eggs and accents were also distressed a little.  The eggs were die-cut from patterned paper.  It is all so versatile.

Bunny Lollipop Holder ~ Day 1 MCT 88th Edition Sneak Peeks

Hello.  The MCT team is sharing Day 1 sneak peeks of the 88th Edition release.


This little bunny was made with the upcoming Bunny Lollipop Holder Die.    Isn't it the cutest little thing?  I decided to make this one for my niece.  But it works perfectly for a boy or a girl just by changing up the shading colors or by using solid cardstock only.  For this favor pop wrap, I shaded the edges with a distress ink pad.  I also added touches of Copic markers for the ears, bangs and whiskers.  I just want to pinch those cheeks.

Separating card sentiments, paper edges & Copics.

Here is an uplifting floral card for thank you, encouragement or just because.


Sentiment:  You deserve all that's good in this world.

This is a quick and easy card with simple card borders along with colorful florals and hand cut sentiments.   I used Copics for the hanging florals, patterned paper for the trim and then decided to cut the sentiment to add dimension.  This was fun to do and turned out looking cheerful and ready for Spring.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Rainbow color stamping and foiling ~ paint brush card.

Here is a fun and colorful card for any celebration occasion or just because.


Sentiment:  Wishing you a colorful day.

For this card, I used a sheet of rainbow colored foil along with a laminator to pre-foil the swash and the sentiment.  To add even more color, I stamped feathers in different colors to border the top of the card.  Copics were used for the paint brush.  This was fun to do and a great card to have on hand for celebrations.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
