MCT – Made in Minutes – Happy Pumpkin Spice Season

mct-gobble-gobble-fall-card-11-2016-1Happy Monday my crafty friends and welcome to “Made in Minutes” with  My Creative Time! Today I made a Fall card.  🙂

From start to finish it took less than 30 minutes.  I watercolored the background using Kuretake Zig Brush Markers and die-cut a rectangle using “Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More”.  I heat embossed the sentiment, pumpkins and leaves and watercolored them.  I die-cut the matching shapes from  “Gobble Gobble”.   To finish the card I added shiny sequins and Wink of Stella to the pumpkins.  I love how it turned out and best of all it was very easy to make! 😉

MCT – OCTOBER Sneak Peek Day #3 – Mixed Media Christmas Card

mct-inside-christmas-cards-10-2016-1

Hello crafty friends and welcome to MY Creative Time! sneak peek day #3. Today we’re showcasing our FREEBIE for this amazing release,  “INSIDE CHRISTMAS CARDS” stamp set.  This set will complete all your Christmas cards!!! Don’t forget that our freebie is for the FIRST 100 shoppers only. 😉

Today I made a mixed media Christmas card.  I watercolored the background and die-cut two journaling cards from “Stitched 3×4 Journal Die” one in vellum and one from the watercolored background.  Once dry, I heat embossed a phrase from the new “INSIDE CHRISTMAS CARDS” stamp set on the background and outlined it with a paint brush.  I die-cut a rectangle from “Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies and More” in corrugated CS and splattered white paint on it.  I die-cut the snowflakes from “Winter Flakes Dies” in glitter CS.  On the card base, I partially heat embossed the background from “Grainy Wood Background”.

To finish the card I added foam adhesive to the watercolored journal card to make it pop and added sequins and rhinestones to each snowflake.  Mixed media is not my thing but I must say I enjoy making something different once in a while and I’m very happy how it turned out! 🙂

MCT – OCTOBER Sneak Peek Day #2 – Santa Suit Shaker Card

mct-santa-suit-clothes-line-shaker-card-10-2016

Hello crafty friends and welcome to MY Creative Time! sneak peek day #2. Today we’re showcasing the fun  “SANTA SUIT DIES”.  Today I made a shaker card.  I loved playing with watercolor in yesterday’s card so much that I decided to watercolor a red background and die-cut all the pieces from the new “SANTA SUIT DIES” to create a Santa’s clothes line! How fun is that?! 😀

To make the shaker card I used the WRMK Fuse Tool. Before sealing the shaker card I added a piece of kraft CS, inked the edges and splattered some white ink to create snow and added sequins and chunky glitter.  I die-cut the card shape using “Stitched Postage Frame Dies” on kraft CS and pattern paper.  To finish the card I glued a piece of jute rope and added red rhinestones to each end.  I hope you like it!!! 🙂

MCT – Birthday Card – Masking Technique

birthday-card-masking-technique-lucia-ardon

Hello everyone! Today is “Try Me Tuesday” at My Creative Time and we are focusing on “Masking Technique”.  I decided to make a birthday card. I wanted it to be fun and colorful.  I used Hero Arts NEON inks, a couple of sentiments from MCT “Surprise” stamp set, and to finish it up I added some neon sequins! I made the inside too.

MCT – Monochromatic Color challenge – I Feel Lucky

Hello everyone and welcome to another fun new MCT Challenge:  The Monochromatic Color Challenge!  For this challenge you need to make any project of your choice using different shades of one color (you can use a different color as your base or background, just make sure your focal point shows the color you chose).  Can you guess the color I chose? 😉

challenge-I-feel-lucky-lucia-ardon-front

For this challenge I felt a little green and watery 😀 Since my hubby is Irish I decided to make a St. Patricks Day card.  I watercolored part of the background (you can see a video here).  I heat embossed one of the sentiments from the new MCT “I’m a Lucky Girl!” stamp set that was perfect for this card! I used the shamrock die from MCT “You’re My Pot Of Gold” and the frame from “Stitched Mini Frame & Arrow Dies”.

challenge-I-feel-lucky-lucia-ardon-sde

I used Peeled Paint Distress Marker and went around the edges of the letters to make them stand out a little more.  I made my own enamel dots using Viva Decor Pen and let it dry over night. To finish it, I added a green and white twine bow.

MCT – Made in Minutes Monday #3 – Wishing you comfort

Hello Everyone!
Today is “Made in Minutes” at My Creative Time!!!  Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of cards using a watercolor technique so I decided to make mine too.  I love this technique because none of the cards that you make are the same, they are UNIQUE! 😉 and super fast to create!  I used the stamp “Wishing you comfort” from MCT “Floral Sentiments” stamp set and the butterfly die from MCT “Chunky Jar Accessories Set”.

MCT – Try Me Tuesday #2 – Double Stamping

Hello Everyone!!!
Today is Try Me Tuesday at My Creative Time and we are focusing on double stamping. I decided to make a birthday card; I drew an arrow on masking paper to cover the areas that I didn’t want to stamp.  To start the “Double Stamping technique” first I stamped the grid background from MCT “Get Schooled” stamp set, then I stamped over it one of the flourish designs from Prima Marketing “Nouveau” stamp set (retired). luardon-happy-birthday-double-stamping-a

I wanted some bling in my card so I decided use some glitter paper and jewels.  I just love the way it turned out! luardon-happy-birthday-double-stamping-b
I made a video! I hope you like it! 😀
