MCT Too Die For


Hello! Today is the day we show different ways to use dies at MyCreativeTime. I used the sweet pumpkin die from the Spooky And Creepy Night set. I cut a panel and then die cut all the pumpkins out in a pattern. I then glued the panel to a piece of kraft paper the same size. Then I popped up the  pumpkins in their places. It looks really cool in real life to see the bit of kraft from the side. The greeting is from the Build A Fall Wreath set.

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 :)

MCT Sneaks Day 2


It's day 2 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we're showing off the new Stitched Square Box Die. I kept mine super simple. {I'm not so great at 3D projects, and that's ok...right? LOL} I used the fish from the Get Whale Soon set to make the pattern on the box. The greeting is from the Sea You Soon set.

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. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more.

The kitty is from the Here Kitty Cupcake set by Peachy Keen Stamps. His little kitty face is from the Kitty, Bird, And Mice Face Assortment set by Peachy Keen Stamps. The greeting is from the May 2017 set. I colored everything with my Copics.
