MCT Make it Manly

 It's Make it Manly with My Creative Time, a time to break out your crafty supplies and make something suitable for a guy in your life.  I owe my nephew a birthday card, so I pulled out some fun MCT products to put together this card!  The new Coffee Break Paper Pad lends itself perfectly for a manly card, with some great colors and patterns!  I used it for my background piece, with one of the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies, and with the Quote Bubble Dies.  For the sentiments, the two on the oval bubbles are from Celebrate You, and the one on the rectangular bubble, as well as the mustache, are from Super Dad!

The Gift Card Holder Die allows you to make a cute little envelope sized just right for a gift card with just one pass through your die-cutting machine!  I used a piece of paper from the new MCT Coffee Break Paper Pad. I stamped mine with a sentiment from the previously released Celebrate You and added a cute little ice-cream cup made with a stamp and die also from that set.

Here's a peek at the back of the envelope.  Isn't it adorable?

MCT 122nd Edition Release Sneak Peek #3

         It's day 3 of My Creative Time's 121st Edition Sneak Peeks!  Today we sneaking two awesome new die sets! We've got the Small Loopy Frame Die and the Large Loopy Frame Die!

My first project today is a card that I made using the Large Loopy Frame Die.  These dies sets come with three dies, I used papers from the new MCT Coffee Break Paper Pad with all three of the dies.  It makes such a fun background for a card!  I then stamped, die-cut, and colored an adorable coffee cup and some coffee beans from Let's Have Coffee and added a sweet sentiment from Let's Venti!

I used the Small Loopy Frame Die to make this pretty birthday tag, again using papers from Coffee Break for two of the layers, along with some pink cardstock for the largest layer.  The cute frappe stamp and die is from Let's Have Coffee and the sentiment and heart are from Let's Venti!

MCT 122nd Edition Release Sneak Peek #2

  It's day 2 of My Creative Time's 122nd Edition Sneak Peeks!  Today we are sneaking another new stamp set, Coffee Flower & Script, and a new stencil, Coffee Stain & Steam Stencil!  These products will be available for purchase on Friday, June 24th, at 8 AM PST!  And, the Coffee Stain & Steam Stencil will be given free to the first 25 shoppers on Friday!  If you would like this stencil for free, you might want to shop early!

I made two cards today!  My first card showcases the new Coffee Flower & Script stamp set.  This set has a pretty script background stamp, along with the most beautiful coffee flower stamp, which I used here.  I stamped it with Versmark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder before ink blending some Tumbled Glass Tim Holtz Distress Ink on top.  Next, I also heat embossed the "just for you" sentiment, from the Let's Venti stamp and die set that we sneaked yesterday.  "Coffee" was made with dies from Let's Have Coffee, also sneaked yesterday.

My second card showcases the new Coffee Stain & Steam Stencil. I think this stencil is going to be a lot of fun for making interesting backgrounds for all different types of cards!  I added some coffee stains and a little steam heart to my card, to go with my latte and coffee beans, which were made with the Let's Have Coffee set.  The sentiment is from Let's Venti.  I think this is the perfect card to send out to a student who gave me a Starbuck's gift card at the end of the school year!

Here's a look at the Coffee Stain & Steam Stencil (free to the first 25 shoppers on Friday):
