Happy Birthday

50-50
Happy Tuesday!!!
Today is favorite stamp/die of the month over on the MCT blog. This month we are featuring the Springtime In Paris Stamp SetI made a shaker card for a friend, for her birthday.

I used the  Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More and an oval from the Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies for the base pieces. The Effiel Tower and sentiment are from the Springtime In Paris Stamp Set the banner is from the The Sky is the Limit Stamp Set. Both the tower and banner are heat embossed. I prefer the look of white heat embossing over white ink.

Happy Monday!!!

Today is Made in Minute's Monday on the MCT blog. I made a quick card to send to a friend who needs a lift. 

I cut the tag out of water color paper, stamped my images with versafine ink and then sealed with with clear embossing powder. Then I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color in my scene. Then I wrapped the tag with a bit of twine and attached it to the card. I stamped and sealed the sentiment the same way I did the flower/lady bug scene.

Tutorial Thursday - Smooshing Technique

10-10
Happy Thursday!!!
Today is Tutorial Thursday on the MCT blog. I made this cad using a technique called "smooshing". It's a fun watercolor technique and it's fairly simple to do.

Here is a quick video showing the "smooshing" process.

This is the card I made in the video. I love how the colors blended together.

Today is "Inspiration Wednesday"over on the MCT blog. I found this card on Pinterest and used it as inspiration for today's card.

Crazy About You!

42-42
Happy Tuesday!!!

Today is stamp of the month "redux" on the My Creative Time blog. This months stamp of the month is the Bracket Sentiments Stamp Set.  I've always loved this card that Emma made, so I chose to use it as my "redux" inspiration.

I've always loved this heart paper, so I used it for the top layer. The diagonal stripe background paper was from the same pad. I used the smallest rectangle in the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More set for the heart piece. I had to change up the design a bit to make it fit, but I really like how it tuned out. I added some clear seed beads and iridescent heart glitter to the shaker part. I stamped it with the same sentiment and of course I had to add a bit of twine.

Scrap the Little Things

1-1
Happy Monday
Today is Scrapping the Little Things over on the MCT blog. I have another quick mini spread to share with you today. I really love the smaller 4x4 albums. They're perfect for me. I can quickly scrap a picture or two, journal, place them in the page protectors, and I'm done. I've always been a fan of the 8x8 albums, but I've been falling further and further behind with my pictures. Since buying these 4x4 albums, I've been able to stay up to date. Woohoo!

A Little Something - Redo

37-37
Happy Thursday!!!
Today is "Do Over" day on the MCT blog. I posted this card on Monday. I really like how it turned out, but I got a few other ideas after I had made it, so I decided to use it as my "do over" card today.

I used the white linen card stock from Papertrey Ink. I love the look of it and need to use it more. I use the  Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More for the base pieces, just like on Monday's card. I used the same sentiment from the Hello Baby Stamp Set, but I used some Ranger Silver Pearl embossing powder instead. It has a gorgeous simmer to it, plus I just love silver! I cut out the same flowers and leaves, but I stamped them with some matching ink and background stamps. I think it really helps to add a bit more interest and texture. I also washed them with some Wink of Stella so they are really glittery. You can't tell from the photos but they really sparkle. I also added a few more flowers and changed where I placed them on the card

This would make a beautiful wedding or anniversary card as well, if it had an appropriate sentiment.

Pencil Treat

25-25
Happy Wednesday!!!
Today is "What a Treat" Wednesday over on the MCT blog. Z starts kindergarten in August and so I thought I would make him and his friends a treat for their 1st day of school. He loves Spider-man, so when I saw these pencils I knew they would make a great 1st day of school treat.

I placed two pencils in each treat bag and then topped them with an oval tag. I cut the ovals out of kraft card stock with my  Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. I stamped the pencil background with the pencil stamp, using kraft ink, from the Write On Stamp SetThe sentiment is from the same set.

A Latte!

Happy Tuesday!!!!
Today is Tag it Tuesday on the MCT blog. I made a quick tag to add to a small thank you gift for a friend. I bought her a bag of her favorite coffee, so I made a coordinating coffee tag to attach to the bag. 

The floral background was stamped with a stamp from the All You Need Is Coffee Stamp Set, the mug and heart are also from that set. The sentiment is from a older set called You Are Perk-fect.

Today is Make it in Minutes Monday over on the MCT blog. I made a quick baby card for a friend who just had a baby girl. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More for the pink layer and then stamped a sentiment from the new Hello Baby Stamp Set. I did use clear embossing powder over the ink, to give it a it of gloss. I cut the flowers and leaves from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves DiesIt was a really quick and easy card to make.
