Designer Challenge with MCT

Good afternoon, I decided to join the MCT team challenge. The challenge was to incorporate fabric and stitches to your project. I previously made a small gift for my mom and thought about maybe adding a card to match.  I decided to use a die set and stamp from MCT. Both die sets have beautiful stitches so all I really needed to add was the fabric!  It was very easy and fast to put together, absolutley love the dies and stamp sets!

Here is my card along with the envelope!

I cut my envelope with the MCT-3x3 Fancy Envelope Die using Close to My Heart Flirty Paper. The stamp set used was MCT-So Grateful For You. Finally just added some ribbon on the front and a rose on the back to finish the envelope.

                                                       Front                                                        Back

 I kept my card pretty simple. It's also from MCT-Card Sentiments with 3x3 Fancy Tri-fold Card (the coordinating card for the envelope die). All I did was add a wooden tree from Close to My Heart. Really super simply, but super cute!

Hope you enjoyed!

Simple Christmas Card

Good afternoon, today I have a very simple Christmas card! I like the idea of a simple card making because they are fast and easy and you can make tons of them! I used the Close to My Heart Pear & Partridge Cardmaking Kit along with some Cashmere cardstock.

I actually made my card to measure 4x11 so that I could get 3 base cards out of one 12x12 cashmere cardstock. The pattern paper measures at 4x2, Cocoa measures at 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 and Colonial White measures at 2 1/2 x 2 1/2. I also used 4 small red glitter gems and the stamp from the kit (the ribbon is from my scraps). I used the Cashmere Ink Pad for my inked image.

You could always add more to the card. Maybe create a background on the base of the card or simply make the words "A Merry Little" a different color. I just wanted to keep it simple in case someone needed an idea for a mass produce card using this fabulous paper!

So Thankful for...

Hi, today I have a little project that I made for my beautiful mom! Just wanted to let her know how much I  love her and how much I'm thankful to have her in my life!

I used the Close to My Heart- Artiste Cartridge for the box, paper fan, banners and the flowers and A Friend Like you stamp set. All of the paper with the exception of the darker shade of pink and the green is from the Flirty Paper Packet, Close to My Heart.

For this project I purchased a 4x6 acrylic frame and glued a  post-it pad. Cut a 4x6 paper using the same designer paper, added some ribbon, roses and a matching pen to finish the project. If you have any questions regarding the projects, please feel to ask!

Hope you enjoyed!

Designer Challenge with MCT

While trying to get caught up with reading some of my favorite blogs, I came across MCT Designer Challenge. The challenge was to create a large decorative tag, anything goes as long as it's 4x6 or larger and it includes My Creative Time stamp set and or dies in any way.

I am going to a baby shower this weekend and the theme is Texas Ranger Baseball. With that being said I knew exactly the stamp set that I was going to use, The Grand Slam Stamp Set. I used several cartridges for this project, the initials on the tag are the baby's. So here it is!

Tag cut at 7 inches with the Close to My Heart Artiste Cartridge
Glove cut at 3.75 inches with the Sports Mania Cartridge
Baseball cut at 2 inches with the Sports Mania Cartridge
Letters cut at 2 inches with the A Child's Year Cartridge
Banner (red) cut at 1 inch, (white) at 3/4 of an inch with the Close to My Heart Artiste Cartridge

Thanks for stopping by!
