My Creative Time: Thoughtful Thursday

Hi, today is Thoughtful Thursday over on the My Creative Time blog. I wanted to create a very simple "get well" card for my aunt who is going through a tough time right now. The new Ouch Stamp was the perfect set to help complete this project.


I first cut out the large pink card stock rectangle using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies. I then layered it onto a vellum Stitched Postage Frame. I set that aside and cut two trips for the sentiment. One in the pink card stock and the other in vellum. I then used the new Ouch Stamp Set along with embossing ink and white embossing powder to add the sentiment/hearts to the vellum strip.

I used the More Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies to cut out the pretty pattern paper rectangle. I then layered the strips onto one another and glued them onto my pattern paper rectangle. I added the pattern paper to my vellum postage frame and pink card stock rectangle.

I measured and cut a card base that would go behind  the pink card stock rectangle. I finished the simple card by adding some sequins to jazz it up as well as clear Wink of Stella to the inside of the hearts.

My Creative Time: Tag It Tuesday: Aloha

Hi and today is Tag It Tuesday over on the My Creative Time blog. I created a fun tag using several wonderful MCT products. I decided to make the tag out of a none traditional tag die. I love how versatile a lot of Emma's products can be. Plus, there is plenty of room to write a message on the back of the cute little tag.

 

I first cut out my pattern paper Stitched "Capture" Frame . I then cut a piece of pink card stock to layer behind it and added white gel pen stitching to the edges. Before I added the pink card stock layer, I glued a piece of yellow card stock with vellum over top onto the back of the capture frame.

I stamped and cut out the adorable little fruit images from the new Berry Special Stamp Set. I colored each one in with Copic Markers and added Glossy Accents to the faces, leaves, glasses, and stems. I then added them inside the little window of the frame. I love that little pineapple with sunglasses!! So very cool but cute!

I then stamped the sentiment also from the Berry Special Stamp Set onto a die cut of the Ribbon End Banner Dies. I added it to the frame and then embellished it with a pretty flower that was cut out using the Flower Petal Dies and Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves Dies. I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the yellow center of the flower.

I added the pink card stock layer to the back of the frame finally and cut a hole in it to string some ribbon. I then layer the cutet little Stitched Round Tab on the tag and strung the ribbon through. I finished the card by adding three little white pearl sequins to give it a bit more of sparkle.

Today, I am showcasing the fun new Ouch Stamp Set for the hop!


I wanted to create a fun yet cute "get well" card. I also wanted it to put a big smile on the recipients face! So I thought the new little faces and Band-Aids from this release would be the perfect touch!!

I first cut and stamped out four little band-aids using one of the dies from the Ouch Stamp Set. I stamped the large heart from this set onto two of them and colored them in with a Copic marker. I added one of the adorable new faces from the Berry Special Stamp Set to one of the band-aids. I too colored it with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment and a little heart onto the last one. I then added Glossy Accents to the hearts and the face parts. I set those aside to dry to create my simple card base.




I cut out the aqua rectangle using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies. I then layered a piece of vellum and a piece of white card stock on it that were cut out using the More Stitched Rectangular Dies. I then cut out the card base to add behind the aqua rectangle. I added the band-aids and little clear pearl sequins to finished off the card.

My Creative Time: 57th Edition Release: Sneak Peeks Day 2

Hello and welcome to day 2 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 57th Edition Release! Today we are sneaking the new Ouch Stamp Set!


I'm away from my scrap stash at the moment and couldn't find the right pattern paper I wanted to use for this card. So I created my own using three of the stamps from this new wonderful Ouch Stamp Set. I then colored each image in with Copic Markers. I cut all of the layers to my card out using the Stitched Square Dies. I wanted the background paper to show through but wanted to make the Band-Aid die cut with the sentiment from the Ouch Stamp Set stand out as well. So I just added it to a couple of the Sentiment Label Dies. I then added two little heart die cuts from the Hey There Little Lady Stamp Set to the Band-Aid. I then gave them a bit of sparkle with Wink of Stella and topped them with Glossy Accents.

My Creative Time: 57th Edition Release: Sneak Peeks Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 1 of sneak peeks for the My Creative Time: 57th Edition Release! Today we are sneaking the fun new freebie for this release called Card Borders.


I first cut my pattern paper background out using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies. Then I cut my card base out to just the size I wanted to frame the pattern paper. I wanted my pattern paper to show as much as possible, so I used a piece of vellum that was cut out using the More Stitched Rectangular Dies. I stamped the fun smaller swirl border onto the sides of the vellum using embossing powder and Versamark Ink. I then cut out another piece of card stock the same size as the vellum piece and just cut it down with the die to fit between the two borders.


I stamped and cut out the adorable little mushrooms out from the Home Sweet Home Stamp Set. I then colored them with Copic markers to somewhat match the colors in the pattern paper. I had colored the little circles with a light blue to make them look like little windows. So I finished the look by adding some Glossy Accents to them as well as a few of the other parts on the mushrooms. I added them to the card and stamped the sentiment as well. It too, came from the Home Sweet Home set. I finished the card by adding a few little sequins.

Copic Markers
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Simple Stories: Vintage Bliss Pattern Paper
