Masculine Cars Card ~ Kind Brave Strong and Fierce

This is an all occasion masculine card featuring lots of vintage cars.


Sentiment:  This guy.  Kind Brave Strong and Fierce.

This is for the guys.  I think it works for most occasions including birthday, congratulations, etc.
The cars were made from a single background stamp.  I can see this getting used often.
The sentiment is from a different masculine kit, listed below.

My quick video tutorial shows the process.


Here is another look.

I like the boho style of the tipi.  It was colored in pink hues with Copics.  For the background, I trimmed assorted patterned paper for wonky layers.  A few adhesive gems were added to finish.

Vintage VW Bug Card with Ink Blending & Copics

Here is a vintage style car card for encouragement, moving, good luck, graduation & more.


Sentiment:  Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you will go.

For this card, I used a couple of techniques.  For the background, I stamped leaves in three different colors for ink blending results.  And for the car layer, I used Copic markers for color.  Then, I covered the VW with a layer of gloss.  It shines much more than the photo shows.

My quick video tutorial shows the process.


I love how it turned out.  Here is a closer look.

Wedding Favor Box ~ MCT Inspire Me Wednesday

Today, on the MCT blog, we are sharing something that inspired our project.
Here is one of a few decorated wedding favor box themes that I made to sample different styles.


One popular theme is lace and burlap.  I took inspiration from the photo below but used all paper and die-cuts to get a similar look.  Here is what I found while searching online:


The wedding favor box was easy to put together.  The die-cut kraft color paper was scored and assembled.  Then, I added a die-cut doily, folding up the sides.  I finished with a sheer ribbon and bow.

MCT products used on this wedding favor box:

I hope you were inspired to create handcrafted party favors.

Mini gift box ~ MCT 48 Hour Flash Sale and Blog Hop

Hi, it's Gaylynn here. Welcome to another My Creative Time "48 Hour Flash Sale" and blog hop. You may have arrived from Miss Emma's My Creative Time blog.

Today, the team and I are showcasing this adorable mini gift box die. I see this being used over and over for party favors, small thank you gifts, holiday treats, etc. all year long.

This one is decorated for Thanksgiving. I used double-sided Autumn patterned paper in orange, eggplant and golden colors. The inside is deep purple or eggplant (the same color as the small leaf). It doesn't show the rich inside hue in the photo. The leaves are from a tropical kit called Summer Vibes. I like to think that it is how Florida meets Autumn. Make the best of both worlds, right? haha
