Melonheadz Challenge - use 2 or more dies

Today's challenge is to use two or more dies with our images. If you come to my blog enough, you know that's a no-brainer for me! :) I love my dies and they are such a great accent to use with Melonheadz' adorable digi images!!!

I made this one for my scrapping buddy, Miss Grace, whose summer visit went by way too quickly, as always. This little cutie is from the Thinkers set. I used banner dies for a background accent and label dies for my sentiment. 


I jazzed up her dress a bit by adding tiny white fabric paint dots, tiny enamel dots for her buttons and hair bows, and gave her eyelashes.

The sentiment looked a little bare-naked so I added some bling to tie it in with the color scheme on the rest of the card. Voila! Hope you like!

Quickutz label die
My Favorite Things banner dies
Doodlebug enamel dots

Here's my card with some of the fun new goodies from this release. LOVE that the camera die now has a layered die to fit behind it. Yay!

Also, the "oh snap" and tiny heart are dies from this release. I combined it with the mini frame die and the arrow from 4x4 Journaling+ more set. I love that I had this paper from Kaisercraft ~ Happy Snaps 6.5x6.5

Next up I used the adorable camera and layer die for this fun internet fad, "keep calm and ...." Love the polka dotty pink and brown camera. You may also see a pre-sneak on this card if you look closely! ;)

Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks of the August release. The set we are featuring today is called Fun Vertical Greetings. I used four of the six stamps on this one birthday card. For my background I used the Birthday Buddies set, embossing the balloons and party hats, then water coloring them with distress inks. 


For the party banners, I used the Vintage Label and Banner die cutting them in different lengths to fit the sentiment, and stamping in colors to match the cardstock. Tossed on a few sequins and adhered to a purple mat on the card front and done!

Designer Challenge - color palette!

Welcome to the new challenge at My Creative Time. This challenge is a color challenge. I love the color palette we have for you this time. Here is my rendition!

I decided to add my colors using embossing powder and used the watercolor stripe stamps for my design. For the sentiment, I used the "dream bigger" stamp but with a slight twist.....I heat embossed just the "and" in color, and the remaining words in black for a little more interest. 


And in place of the gray tones {they are gray to my eye; someone else said they look more purple....hmmm} I used silver. I love the silver embossing powder and added sequins and silver cardstock strips along the upper and lower edges to really make it pop. For even more texture, I added sequins, gems and pearls.

We hope you'll join us for this challenge. To get you started, here's your inspiration photo!
Product List:
My Creative Time, Build a Scripty/Watercolor background stamp
My Creative Time, Build a Stripey background stamps
My Creative Time, Dream Bigger stamp
Embossing powder; Zing cricket, apricot and mustard; silver, sequins, gems, pearls, silver cardstock

Day 11, Play Day! OCC Stretch Your Stamps2

For this card I used silver embossing powder to create a faux metal look behind my sentiment. I also used embossing paste to create a subtle background design. Pretty quick and easy card but a big impact with the silver faux metal.

Back to School Challenge at Melonheadz!

The new challenge is up at Melonheadz Friends! I love back to school, so this was a super fun one for me. I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge, too. :)

I used the School Subjects Kidlettes set for my card. This is the library girl....most of my grandgirls are library girls, so I thought this would be perfectly fitting. Besides, isn't she adorbsies!?


I colored her with copics, added a pearl to her hair bow, then cut her out and attached with foam tape to my card front. Then I decided she needed a wink of stella, so a little bit of sparkle was added as well. Love that stuff.

Scrapping the Little Things

Good morning, it's MONDAY and time for Scrapping the Little Things with the My Creative Time Design Team. Hope you had an awesome weekend, and Monday is being nice to you. :) I'm happily enjoying my Monday morning coffee. But let's get down to the biz.

I made -- are you sitting down???? -- my very first ever SMASH BOOK PAGE!!!!! Check it out. This is my hubby at one of his favorite fishing holes. Can't really tell but he's up high above the water on a cliff looking at the lake below.

The water is so clear you can see if there are fish or not. This day, unfortunately, there were none. Boo. But I got a few awesome pictures and honestly that's all I cared about. LOL

Day 10, SYS2, Cards 2 & 3

Two more techniques from class today! This one is colored embossing - yummy.


And this is layered vellum stamping. Pretty cool - of course much better in real life. ;)


Day 10, Stretch Your Stamps 1 of 3 cards

This card was such fun for me as I got to make my own faux chipboard letters. You probably know, if you are a follower, how much I love my dies and making chipboard shapes/letters with them, so this one is right up my alley. :)


 Letters are Quickutz Alpha, Diesel Classic, upper case.
