MCT Manly Monday


Hello! It's Manly Monday at MyCreativeTime. I used the Get Whale Soon set. I used just the dies to cut out the whale shapes. I watercolored behind them, and popped the panel up. I used the stitched rectangular Frames and More Dies to cut out the panel. I used distress inks to watercolor, and just did some messy stripes for the background paper. Easy peasy. :)

Hello! I'm SO HAPPY to share this new release from Peachy Keen Stamps! The new July 2017 is so so so so awesome! Eek! Ok, I've calmed down. :) Let's start with this mermaid. How adorable is she? I stamped her and her sweet fishy friends {also in this set!} and colored them with my Copics. I made the background with distress ink and water. I love her. Swoon. 


Attention world! THERE IS A SAILOR HAT IN THIS SET!!! I shall now commence to putting sailor hats on ALL THE THINGS! :) Anyhoo, is this not the cutest sea turtle you've ever seen?! I colored him with my Copics. I made the background with distress inks and stencils. Oh, and in "super ridiculously proud Aunt news", my nephew Zach joined the United States Navy this week! ♥ I sent this card to him. ♥ 


Ok, my last card for today is a funny one! I made this super awesome pirate ride on the sea turtle! Eek! :) To make this happen I cut off his leg and peg leg {he didn't scream} and positioned them the way I wanted. Then I cut out the turtle's head {again, no screaming} and popped it up. I colored the images with my Copics, and did the background with distress inks and a cloud stencil...even for the water. {just flip it!} :) That punny greeting is also in the new July 2017 set :) 


Ok, now onto my other news for today. I did my first crafty broadcast on Periscope the other day. I was super nervous, but everyone was so nice and supportive! I ended up having lots of fun. So much so that I was on for almost an hour and a half! Oops. HA! Soooooo...I'm going to be going LIVE tonight at 6pm EST {5 CST, 4 MST, 3 PST} :) I'll be showing how to mask and color a little beach scene using the new July 2017 set from Peachy Keen Stamps. I hope you'll get the Periscope App for your phone, or you can watch on your computer HERE. Follow me @NavyWifeScraps to be sure to catch the notification. So, come hang out and chat with me. OH, and you could WIN a $50 Gift Certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps just for watching and interacting! OH, and Kathy "The Peachy Queen" Herself will be there chatting! YAY! {pssst...and there may be another prize up for grabs ;) }

MCT Whatever Wednesday


It's Whatever Wednesday at MyCreativeTime. I used the Healing Wishes set for the flowers. I colored them in a way to go from gray to muted to bright. I wanted to use the greeting from the You Are A Blessing set. My idea was to show "taking care of yourself" in colors. Anyway, it made sense in my mind. LOL. I colored them with my Copics.
