MCT Thoughtful Thursday: Miles Apart...

by Veronica

I am not a fan of The Hubs leaving town. Growing up, I was never left alone overnight, so staying by myself is kind of hard for me. I know, I know... I'm a big girl. But it doesn't mean I have to like it. *giggle*

When he does leave (which is rare, thankfully), I like to 'hide' a little card in his suitcase to remind him that I'm missing him. Saying that I 'hide' it is a stretch since he now expects one to be there.

This card is great for a man, but has a little girly flair to it with the sparkly airplane and rhinestones in the top corner. The perfect mix of masculine and feminine; bold and dainty; yin and yang... oh you get what I mean.

MCT Products Used
Vintage Sentiments Stamp Set ("Missing you")
Fly Away With Me Sentiments Stamp Set ("Miles apart, but close in my heart...")
You Are Here Stamp Set (airplane)

The airplane was sparkled with Star Dust Stickles and the 'fly lines' were drawn with a black fine tip marker.

I hope you were inspired!

MCT Thoughtful Thursday: Cherry on Top...

by Veronica

It seems that CAS (Clean & Simple) is very in these days, and I'm LOVING that bandwagon! It's so crisp and, well... clean.

But isn't it funny how not-so-simple, CAS can be? I know that I can stare at my materials for a long time before I know what to do with them. *giggle*

Today's project is a birthday card I've made a la CAS. The 'challenge' for today was to use one of two MCT stamp sets. I used More of My Favorite Sayings for the sentiment and the ice cream dies from Celebrate Good Times.

The polka dots are embossed with a folder from The Paper Studio and the card stock and patterned paper are Stampin' Up! A little glitter (on the cherry) and a good dose of pop dots finish this card off nicely.

See what the other MCT designers have in store for this Thoughtful Thursday over at Emma's blog.

I hope you were inspired!

MCT Birthday Bash Blog Hop: Flying By to Say...

by Veronica


Welcome, welcome to the My Creative Time Birthday Bash Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating our fearless leader's 42nd birthday with fun birthday-themed projects, a giveaway and a fabulous SALE!!! More on that in a bit...

If you've hopped here from Tracy's blog then you're headed in the right direction. If not, mosey on over to the Birthday Girl's blog to start from the beginning!

Our youngest nephew, Mason, is turning ONE this month! He's growing so big - so fast! To celebrate, I made him this sweet little 4.25" square card.

The sentiment (Fly Away With Me Stamp Set) is originally 'straight' - no curve at all. But with My Creative Time's fabulous photopolymer stamps, you can wiggle them all around to fit your card! I really love the way it follows the tail of the kite (Fly Away With Me Sentiments).

After coloring the tail flags of the kite with my Copics, I re-stamped the kite onto another sheet of white card stock, colored it, cut out the top portion and layered it with pop dots. I then glittered the tail flags and kite with Star Dust Stickles.

Card Inside
The little banner/flag hanging on the left was embossed with the Stampin' Up! Clouds Impressions Folder. The design of this card is very clean and simple - the layering adds pizzazz!

The inside simply says, "Happy Birthday" (Celebrate Good Times) so we can write our own message and sign.

MCT 3D Wednesday: Tooth Fairy Capsule

by Veronica

Welcome to another 3D Wednesday with the My Creative Time Design Team! Today I'm sharing an idea I came up with while scrapping with the girls last weekend.

Every other month or so (though we'd like to be more frequent) the ladies in my family and a few friends get together to craft all day. Last Saturday, my Mom's friend joined us and challenged me to come up with an idea for an empty medication bottle she had. Well, actually - she claims that she has MANY of these bottles and just can't get rid of them because she knows that there must be something great to create with them.

Ever have that thought about something? It's so hard to part with little treasures that you just know someday will come in handy, isn't it?

I stared at that bottle forever and just couldn't seem to come up with anything other than storage for small crafting supplies (buttons, brads, doo-dads, etc.). Finally, while going through my MCT stamps for inspiration, I found this adorable little tooth duo and knew just what to do with the bottle - a little capsule for the Tooth Fairy!

Now, I realize that this isn't exactly an idea to mass produce with all of the bottles this friend has, but I was happy to come up with something! *giggle*

The project is pretty simple, but I think it's just darling. I added a little sparkle with some Star Dust Stickles and a little rhinestone. The teeth are very lightly colored in with gray Copics.
