How fun is this background stamp??? I love the way it adds texture to my background.

MCT 54th New Release Sneak Day 3

Good Morning everyone and welcome to day 3 of sneaks for the 
54th New Release
from 
My Creative Time!

Today's sneak is the FREEBIE set for the release called:
INSPIRE 
For my card I tried something new and played around with stamping multiple times to make a background using the "inspire" sentiment. 
Next I layered some vellum over top of the stamped sentiments and stitched the corners with my sewing machine.
For the focal point of my card, I again used the new sentiment and stamped it onto the die frame that is also part of this freebie.
I needed just a little pop of color so I die cut a red heart from the Believe in Your Dreams set.

Good Morning and welcome to Day 2 of sneaks for the
54th New Release 
from

Today's new stamp/die set is:
YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE
and will surely be another favorite!! Here is the card I made using this set....
For my card today I pulled out my zig watercolor markers and played around a little to make this CAS design. 
I am loving the new dies and sentiment with this set and really wanted to showcasing them so I die cut the new cloud and sun using watercolor paper and added some color to them.
Next I added some watercolor to my card mat to then pop up my die cuts.
The sentiment was stamped onto my mat, I added 2 tiny heart die cuts (also part of this set) and some random sequins.

Good Morning and welcome to the 
54th New Release sneak peek week from
The DT has an amazing week of sneaks to share followed by the new release BIG reveal and Blog Hop on Friday!I hope you will join us~ You are going to LOVE this month's new stamps and dies!!


Today's sneaks include the new set.....
MOM
Just in time for Mother's Day..this set is going to be a must have!!!
I made my card for my MIL's birthday which just happens to be today :)
Her favorite color is purple so I wanted to center her card around that. I pulled out my copics for alittle coloring of this gorgeous flower bunch stamp/die. After I colored and die cut the stamp, I popped it up with some foam and added some silver thread to the backside. I think it added a bit of elegance to those gorgeous flowers...what do you think??
Next I stamped the new sentiment onto the banner die from the Chocolate Greetings set and popped that onto the flower bunch.
Some simple pearl embellishments finished off my card.

Thanks.....MCT Made in Minutes

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!!! 

It is time for another
My Creative Time's~ Made In Minutes!
 The MCT DT will be sharing quick and easy projects using MCT stamps and dies that you can recreate in no time!

Things are finally getting back to normal here and I promise to be better about checking in with all of your blogs really soon!!!
Now onto my card.....
  I got a request from my MIL to make some thank you cards for her. Well since I love to make CAS cards and wanted to make at least 20 for her, I picked a design that I knew she would like but that I could also mass produce in very little time.
Since her favorite color is purple I used that for my stamped focal point. The square background is from the original Coffee Break stamp set and I stamped it onto the center of my card mat~along with all 19 others~ using my Misti. 
Next I positioned the "thanks" sentiment where I wanted it to lay and stamped all 20 cards again using my Misti.
I thought I was done with my card but then decided that I wanted to add something alittle more. Not sure about having enough enamel dots on hand I grabbed the Stitched Pretty Flower set and the little flower die. It added just the extra pop of color I was looking for.
