Can't get enough "Creative Time"...

Hello crafty friends! Well I couldn't sleep last night as I've been under the weather. So I got creative. I have a few very special birthdays coming up in my family (my god-daughters, both of them, born on the same day 9 years apart! lol... bit of info) anyway, I think these came out SOOO adorable!
 Hope you enjoy!
Please leave comments, love 'em!
Let me just say that this is such a FUN FUN stamp/die set!!
you can purchase it HERE

This first card is a 4x4 card using Kraft card stock, and My Minds Eye 6 x 6 pack Lost and Found.
I used my brand new FAVORITE die, Fun Pockets. The balloons were cut from MCT build a banner kit, I used the little circle stitched die. Punched it with a rectangle punch for the balloon effect. Some twine for the balloon strings. Of course, some faux stitching I had to use! The inside sentiment says Wish Big from another of MCT stamp sets Wow so many candles....
 This next card is also a 4 x 4 . I rounded the edges with my corner punch. Used MCT Celebrate Good Times Stamp/die set.... for the stamp and dies. SO adorable! Love the bright colors and how well they look with the Kraft paper.

Ok this last card is a 6.25 x 3.5 card. The patterned paper is from Fancy Pants "Be You" 6 x 6 paper pack. Navy card stock, the jeans stamp and sentiment are of course from MCT Fun pockets (colored with my Spectrum Noir markers...still havent heard back from the company about them exploding!)
I used real mini clothes pins colored in orange spectrum marker. So cute! 
Thanks for visiting!!

MCT Pocket Full of.....

Hello!! It's been a while since I've posted here. I just received My Creative Time's 17th edition stamp/die set!! I LOVE it! Couldnt wait to play. I made these 2 cards using Fun pockets stamp set & Fun in the Sun stamp set.
I colored with my copic markers and Spectrum Noir markers (which some exploded in my hand when I opened them! I'll be sending those back) Anyway, hope you enjoy!



This next project I created with Love You A Latte Cricut cartridge, My Creative Time You Are Perk-fect stamp set. I found the frame at Joann's on clearance for 4.97. Made a name frame, vinyl letters on the glass, and removed this mat. It's been siting in my craft corner waiting for inspiration. I thought of this project for a kitchen. Thought it came out pretty good. There's clear acetate paper adhered to the back of the mat. I cut each coffee item about 4-5" depending on the item and adhered that to the front. Stamped my little sentiments on the bottom and wala!  The whole thing measures 20 x 8".
Thanks for visiting! Come again!
