MCT 37th Edition Release Blog Hop

Hello! You should have come from Shar's Blog, if not, head HERE to start at the beginning. For my card I have used the fabulous new Boughs Of Holly set. I turned the "boughs" in the set into feathers. :) Here's how I did it...I inked up the stamp with worn lipstick distress ink. I then pounced on spiced marmalade and picked raspberry distress markers. I then spritzed the stamp 3 times from a foot away. Then stamped it on to water color paper. Then I used a brush to swish the color around. To finish, I used the end of my paint brush to drag color up from the bottom to make the "stem/vein/i dunno". HA! I then used the coordinating dies in the new Boughs Of Holly set to cut them out. 
I used the "happy" die, also from the Boughs Of Holly set. I cut it out 5 times and glued them together. I used tarnished brass distress stain to color it. I also used that distress stain to stamp "birthday", which is also in the Boughs Of Holly set. I used the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies for my shaker window. Phew...So, do you think my "feathers" look like feathers? :)

Have fun hoppin'! Your next stop is MICIA

MCT Sneaks Day 4

It's day 4 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime and today we are sneaking a new set called Oh Deer. For my card I used a sweet deer die from the Oh Deer set to die cut my circle from the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies. The circle is splattered with picked raspberry and spiced marmalade distress inks. Oh, and some gold lame Color Shine spray too. I used the Grainy Wood Background and gold heat embossed it. I also gold embossed the greeting from the new Oh Deer set. This was really hard to get a photo of, it looks better in real life. :) 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime for more sneaks.

MCT Sneaks day 3

Hello! It's day 3 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking a new set called Winter Cheer. I stamped and gold heat embossed the mittens from the set. I water colored them with picked raspberry and spiced marmalade distress inks. I then cut them out with the matching dies in the Winter Cheer set. LOVE LOVE LOVE this new style of die that allows you to cut after stamping! Makes it so much easier! :) 
I used the same inks and some gold lame Color Shine spray to make my splatters. I used the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies for the circles. I added a greeting from the set on the inside. {forgot a pic}

MCT Thrifty Thursday

Hi! It's Thrifty Thursday at MyCreativeTime. My card today uses the alternate background I made for THIS card. And sticking with the thrifty-ness...I also recycled my design from that card. {I just flipped it} On with the deets... I stamped the background with the grid from the Get Schooled set with soft granite shadow ink. I stamped over that with the stars from the Trick Or Treat set with neon orange Hero Arts ink. I used the same inks to stamp the chevrons with the Build A Chevy set and cut it out with the Bunch Of Fun Circles dies. 
I made the sunglasses with the die from the What's Growing On set. I cut it out 5 times and glued them together. I made "glass" part by coloring the back of vellum with a black marker. It's looks cool in real life. The greeting is from the Treasured Moments set. I finished it off with sequins.

Happy birthday, Monster! :)

Hello! Today I played with brand spankin' new PeachyKeen goodness! :) I used my silhouette to cut out the new Blue Monster Peachy Pieces. I cut him out in white, and inked him up with tumbled glass, broken china, salty ocean, and chipped sapphire distress inks. I used antique linen distress ink for his arms and legs. The adorable face is from the new Squee Face Assortment. So cute! I ♥ him! 
I stamped my sky with the fabulous Cloudy Day Background from PeachyKeenStamps with soft pool Hero Arts shadow ink. I free hand cut the hill and inked it with lime green shadow ink. I combined 2 sets to make the greeting. I used the Sentiments For September 2014 set for the "happy birthday"...and the "monster!" is from the August 2014 set.
