MCT 42nd Edition Release Blog Hop!

Hello! You should have arrived from Lucia's Blog, if not, head HERE to start at the beginning. For my card today I used the beautiful new Believe In Your Dreams set. I used the coordinating dies from the Believe In Your Dreams set to cut the feathers from the panel I made with the Stiched Rectangular Frames And More Dies. I then stamped the feathers with Stazon ink on vellum. I used R81, 83, and 85 Copic markers to color them from the back to mimic the ombre of my card base. I adhered them behind the panel, and adhered patterned paper behind the vellum. The patterned papers I used are from the Capture Life 6x6 pad by Echo Park. The greeting is also from the new Believe In Your Dreams set. 

Your next stop on the hop is RUTHIE

MCT Sneaks day 4

Hello! It's day 4 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking the new Thanks For The Lift set. Is that chubby little plane not the cutest?! :)  I used my Copic markers to color the plane. I cut out the plane and banner using the coordination dies that come in the Thanks For The Lift set. Love that! I used the Cartoon Cloud Background and Stitched Grass Die inside my shaker. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies for the frame. I filled my shaker with sequins and these little stars. To finish it off, I added wink of stella to the banner and the windows on the plane. I also added glossy accents to the windows.

MCT Sneaks Day 3

Hello! It's day 3 of sneaks at MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking the new Fun Stitched Cloud Dies and The Sky Is The Limit set. I made a very subtle sky wash with tumbled glass distress ink and water. I cut the Fun Stitched Clouds out of vellum. I gold heat embossed the hot air balloon, banners, and sentiment from the new The Sky Is The Limit set. I used abandoned coral, dried marigold, scattered straw, cracked pistachio, and tumbled glass distress inks to watercolor the balloon and banners. I finished off the design with a few gold sequins.

MCT Trending Now

Hiya! It's Trending Now Thursday at MyCreativeTime. Today we used our dies to create a stencil. I used the Stitched Square Speech Bubble Dies to make a stencil. I inked over my stencil with butter bar, orange soda, and tide pool Hero Arts shadow inks. Before removing the stencil, I used a black marker to outline the bubbles. I stamped and colored the robot from the Best Bots Forever set with my copics. I added wink of stella and glossy accents to parts of the robot. The "gear up, it's your day" greeting is from the Best Bots Forever set. The "Birthday wishes just for you" greeting is from the It's All About You set. The "fun" greeting is from the Things I Love set.

Inspire Me Wednesday

Today is Inspire Me Wednesday at MyCreativeTime. For my card today I was inspired by the above Easter card that my husband and I received this year. I really liked the rows of repeated images. Here is my card... 
I stamped the whale from the Lost At Sea set repeatedly with soft pool and mint julep Hero Arts shadow inks. I white heat embossed the greeting from the Lost At Sea set as well. I finished it off with some sequins.
