My Creative Time Designer Challenge

Today is a My Creative Time Designer Challenge, and our designer Cindy has challenged us to create a birthday themed project!  Perfect timing for me, since two of my third graders are celebrating their birthdays this week.  For the little girl, I made this cute 3" x 3 1/2" card.  The fun chevron paper is from the My Mind's Eye Chalk Studio collection.  I added a sweet banner made with the MCT Stitched Party Dies.

I love how well the My Creative Time dies cut through felt!  I find the Papertrey Ink felt works particularly well.  Isn't this ice cream cone from Celebrate Good Times adorable?

For my sentiment, I used the MCT Vintage Stitched Label Die and stamped it with a sentiment from Vintage Sentiments.

For the little boy celebrating his birthday, I made my card base with the MCT 3x3 Fancy Tri-fold Card Die.  Before running it through my Vagabond, I put strips of cloud washi tape from My Mind's Eye  Cut & Paste Charm collection onto my white cardstock.  I then stamped a sentiment from Card Sentiments, the stamp/die set that includes the Tri-fold Card Die.

This cute little airplane is a Studio Calico Transportation Wood Veneer.  I inked it up with some kraft ink to help it stand out better on the washi tape.  It's pulling a fun tag made with the MCT Chunky Jar Accessories stamps and dies.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she, Cindy, and the rest of the design team have to share with you today!
