Sunburst Card - My Creative Time Tutorial Thursday

Hi Everyone!
I have a really quick and easy tutorial for you today using a couple of dies from My Creative Time.  I love these sunburst cards using scrap paper but I hate measuring out the pieces, plus I like the stitching all around each piece.


I used two sets to create this sunburst backgrount, the More Stitched Rectangular Dies and the More Stitched Edges, both of these sets are a must have!


I started by cutting out 6 pieces using the third largest die in the Rectangular set.  These are all scraps I had from the same paper pad, bought from Michaels a long time ago.


I took the straight stitched edge die and cut each rectangular piece diagonally.  I wasn't precise at all with my cutting, just eyeballed it.  Using this die gave me stitching on both sides of the cut!


I cut the largest rectangular die out of white cardstock and used my tape gun to put strips of tape down vertically and horizontally.  Start adding the pieces, you'll need 11 of them.


You can see that the center isn't perfect and it doesn't have to be it will be covered, just make sure your pieces touch each other.  I didn't press down so I could move some of my pieces until they lined up nicely.


I ran the piece through my die cut machine with the largest rectangular die.  You don't have to line it up with the bottom piece, that's just for the pattern pieces to be glued to.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!!

To My Best Peep - My Creative Time What A Treat Wednesday

Hi everyone! Welcome to MCT What a Treat Wednesday!
I have a cute little Easter treat to share using the Milk Carton Die.




I used one of the Oval Dies to make a cutout window.  I filled the box with some chocolate eggs and a pink bunny peep.  Of course I had to use one of the cute peep sentiments from the To A Cute Little Chick set stamped on one of the Vintage stitched Label dies.

Easter Basket SVG Freebie

I just loved the adorable Slatted Basket that Betty Traciak made at Splitcoaststampers, what a great little Easter basket!  I don't like to make too many things like this without using my cutting machine so I made this svg cutting file.  I'm planning on making a bunch so this will save me so much time.


I welded all the slot pieces so that it's one piece, just line up the basket and the slots fit under the flaps perfectly.  I also added slits on two sides so the handle can slide in between the flap.  This is a pretty sturdy basket, really love that.  The designer paper is Carta Bella's Baby Mine Girl and the sentiment and diecut label are both from My Creative Time.  This is super simple to put together.  I cut it out on my Brother ScanNCut2 but it should cut fine on other machines.  I'm adding the zip file down below it comes in two svg files,  You can put both files on your mat and resize, my basket measures about 3" x 3", I believe the original one that Betty made was 4" x 4".

Ears To You - Bunny Fry Box

I love this cute sentiment from My Creative Time's Ears To You set, one of my favorites. I've already used it on a paper bag I made for the release, but I wanted to use it again on this bunny fry box I made from the Dreaming Trees Heart Treat Box freebie.


Once I trimmed the top of the hearts in SSDE to look more like ears I added a cutout in the center so you could see the jellybeans inside.  I also created some basic shapes for the inside of the ears and feet, a super simple box to put together.

Lucky Rocker Card

Here's a Rocker card I made using some of the files from the Dreaming Tree's new bundle Luck Of The Irish.  I altered the top gold piece svg from the Lucky Coin Box and created a mirror image so I had two pieces for a front and back.  I added a flap and some score lines on one of the pieces so I could glue them together to form the card.  I also created a top layer with a strip on the bottom of the lucky so I could cut that out in gold cardstock.  The shamrock is one of the cutout pieces from the top gold piece svg.  The sentiment is from My Creative Time's Your My Lucky Charms set.


My Creative Time's 53rd Release Sneak Peek Day 2


Welcome back to Day 2 of MCT's New release!
Today we are showcasing the beautiful set
Just Because


I love this set, it may be one of my favorite all time sets, these flowers are gorgeous!  I seen this technique on Pinterest and thought this stamp set would be perfect to use for it.  I placed the smaller layer on top with a little tape so it wouldn't move and stamped the flowers with some gray versamark ink and heat embossed.  Then I pulled the top layer and colored it in with my markers.  I popped up the top layer lining it up where the flowers meet, such a simple card to make but I love how it looks.

Father's Day Trophy - Dreaming Tree's Luck Of The Irish Bundle

Dreaming Tree release it's new bundle Luck Of The Irish and it has the sweetest coffee mug inside. Besides St. Paddy's day it could be used for so many different occasions.  I added another handle to create this adorable trophy for a Father's Day gift package!


I altered the base from the Love Hut Mailbox to create the base for the trophy.  For the woodgrain pattern I used Heidi Swapps background stamp on some kraft cardstock and darkened it with Walnut Distress Ink.  The gold and white cardstock is from a paper stack from Michaels, super cheap and the gold accent pieces were cut from some metallic poster board from the Dollar Store.  The diamond shape in the middle is from one of the Floral Gate Fold Card.  The whole project was cut using my Brother ScanNCut2, except for a couple of metal dies used.


  Here's a closer look, the Father's Day Sentiment is a Peachy Keen Stamp and the label is the Stitched Oval Die from My Creative Time.

Here's a look at the whole Luck Of The Irish Bundle!


My Creative Time's 53rd Release Sneak Peek Day 1


Welcome to MCT's 53rd Release!
So excited to share this project with you today using the New Set
Ears To You and one of the dies from the Freebie Mini Butterfly Dies.


This bunny is so cute as is the bouquet of flowers from this new set.  The mini butterfly dies are just darling, absolutely perfect when you need that small little something for your project! For the carrot I used the Bubblegum Treat Box, I cut a top piece in green and used fringe scissors.  I trimmed one of the edges off, folded the flaps in and cut out a rectangle piece to form the flat bottom.  The sentiment is also from the new set and the tag is from the Fun Stitched Tag Dies
