Hello! It's Whatever Wednesday at MyCreativeTime! Today I used the awesome Pretty Bold Numbers Dies to create my background. I used the numbers to emboss "60" into the background by running it through my machine with the Spellbinders tan embossing mat. I then watercolored over it to match my image. {cut from the Ole cartridge with my Cricut and colored with Copics} 


You can kind of see it better here. Sorry, it is hard to get a good photo of. It's really cool in real life! Super easy, and totally custom!

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 :)

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.

MCT Tag It - Watermelon Card


Hello! It's Tag It Tuesday at MyCreativeTime. I used the tag from the Holiday Tags set. I created the "watermelon" background paper after being inspired by Denise on Periscope as she made a treat bag from a kit. I blended Twisted Citron distress ink onto watercolor paper, and then used the Stripey Background and Mowed Lawn distress ink. I spritzed the stamp with water before stamping to get a loose impression. {I now know that stamp is retired. oops. But you could easily just paint stripes} :) I made the watermelon with circle dies. Colored it with distress inks. The face is from the You Make Life Sweet set. The greeting is from the Sweet Wishes set.

FREE bird stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps


Hello! Here's a card I made using the cute bird stamp that will be FREE with qualifying purchase at Peachy Keen Stamps this weekend. I did mirror stamping here. I masked the heart and blended inks with distress inks. I colored the birds with my Copics. The greeting is from the May 2017 set. 

Each weekend this month there will be a different free stamp offered. This weeks bird is just so super cute! Pop over to Peachy Keen Stamps to do some shopping! :)

I stamped him first and masked him. Then I stamped the balloons and masked them a few times to make lots of balloons. I colored everything with my Copic markers. The greeting is also from the My Favorite Bunny set.

Altered Lawn Fawn Claw Machines :)


Hello! I have 2 cards to share that I made using the new You're Clawsome set by Lawn Fawn. I altered it my doing lots of masking to create a claw machine filled with sea critters instead of bears. I was making 2 shakers, but I messed up on one so that became just a regular one. {below} Anyhoo, I colored everything with my copics. I used an exacto to cut out and make the shaker. I super love how it turned out! Like SUPER LOVE. :) 


And I'm kinda glad I messed up on making a 2nd shaker because I love how this turned out, too. :) I colored everything with my Copics. I made the floor with the chisel end of one copic. Easy peasy. I ink blended and used a stencil for the wallpaper. For this one I cut a slit in the prize slot and slid the starfish in it. 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

p.s. The non shaker card is for sale in my Etsy shop. {clickable link to shop in side bar}

MCT Inspire Me Wednesday


Hello! It's Inspire Me Wednesday at MyCreativeTime! My card today was "inspired" by my need for graduation cards. HA! I used the Grad Night set for the little diploma to stamp the background. I also used the Grad Night set for the graduation hat and the greeting. I used the Pretty Bold Number Dies for the year. I also used the Stitched Rectangular Frames and More Dies, Stitched Vintage Labels, and Sentiment Labels dies. I made it a shaker and filled the number area with sequins, glitter, and stars.
