MCT Throwback Thursday~"Do Over"

Good Morning and Happy Thursday everyone!
Welcome to "Throwback Thursday~Do Over" with My Creative Time
where we share projects we have redone from the past, using MCT stamps and dies of course.
My card today is actually a redo pulling 2 different cards I made not to long ago, combining them using all MCT products and adding a few new techniques I have learned from a few online card classes I have taken. Lets take a look.

Here is my new card. I am really quite impressed with how it turned out and think it would be great to make a few of these to have in my stash. 
Thanks to SEVERAL of my DT sisters for enabling me, I ordered myself a MISTI. OMG this makes stamping so much easier!!!!! I am totally in love with it and can't wait to play with it more :)
Anyways when the idea for my card popped into my head, I used my MISTI to make sure all my chevron stamps lined up perfectly. I actually stamped a few additional card mats to put more of these cards together. I used some new Ranger Dye Inks for the chevrons in beautiful blue colors and once all my chevron lines were stamped I die cut the mat using the Stitched Rectangular Die.
Then for the "thanks" I used the new die set from this last release~Hello Frame Dies and die cut is on a piece of black cardstock layered on some fun foam. That way when I went to add it to my card, there was already a fun popped up look to the piece which also adds some great dimension and texture.
Since using thread is really "in" right now, I added a next of some silver thread to add under my banner sentiment. Again for more added texture~which I just LOVE!
To finish my card off, I took some silver glitter spray and added some splotches. It looks so fun and shimmery in person and matches the silver thread embellishment as well.

Now these are my card redo's. I Linked each of the pictures to the original post incase you want to head back to check them out!
For this card I used the thread and the placement of the Speech Bubble sentiment as the inspiration for my re-do card. Don't forget that this Speech Bubble set is on sale all this month so if it is on your wishlist now is the perfect time to pick it up HERE

And this card is really where my re-do started. I wanted to stamp the chevrons instead of die cutting them like in the above card. 2 very different cards but loving how the new one turned out just as much as this one!

  19. all of these cards are gorgeous.. I love those chevrons.. great designing.

  20. Hey girlie, it was so good to hear from you. The "thanks" die on that first card is fantastic and definitely worth checking out. Your cards are all wonderful too.
    I have been sitting on the fence about the MISTI since last fall. I keep thinking (hoping) that surely sooner or later, some big company is going to buy her out & maybe they can mass produce it to a point where it won't be quite so expensive. I may be waiting quite a while unfortunately.
    Y'all have really been blasted this winter haven't you? Hope you've been able to keep your sanity and not suffered any damages. I think about you whenever they show the weather reports for your area.

  21. I popped over to check out the thanks die & of course, it is out of stock.

  22. love this card!! The bright colors are stunning! Want a chance to win two free digi images....visit my blog!!

  23. oh wow! So in love with this and how you combined the two older cards! You have a misti? ooohhh so jealous! I think I might have to break down and get one here soon, I bet it makes a lot of things easier, I would love to hear your thoughts on it! you can just email me/message me if you don't want to leave it in my comments! hugs!!!
