Made in Minutes with My Creative Time!

Hello crafty friends and welcome back!!  Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!!  Today it's all about whipping up a card in minutes using products from My Creative Time!  I mixed a bit of old and new stuff for my project today and since fall is upon us, I used a bunch of gorgeous colours of Distress Inks for my colouring.

I was recently told that I should start making more sympathy/thinking of you cards so that it what I did today.

My favourite way to add colour quickly is to ink blend onto die cut images. This takes no time at all and the results are beautiful!

I started by clear heat embossing the large image from the Carved Heart Stamp and Die Set onto a piece of white cardstock and used Vintage Photo and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks to add the colour. The embossing resists the ink resulting in a bright, crisp image!

I used the co-ordinating die to cut it out. This set also comes with a bunch of heart dies so I cut a medium sized one of those and added Fired Brick Distress Ink.

The leaves come from the new die set, Little Stitched Leaves which is a must have!! I used Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Fossilized Amber to add some shades of Fall.

The sentiment comes from the Vintage Sentiment Stamp Set and was stamped onto the banner die from the Vintage Stitched Label Dies Set.  I used ivory cardstock for a more muted look against the kraft card base.

For a bit of added detail, I added some sparkle pen and Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the heart (which changed the colour slightly) and a few gold gems.

This card took my about 20 minutes to make. The longest of those minutes were trying to decide on where to place the gems and getting my glue to come out of the bottle!

Thank you so much for stopping in today. Much appreciated!

See you soon!

  2. I find them so so so hard to make, but a friend who lost her Mum recently told me that the one I had made and sent her was the best one as it wasn't overly sentimental with sloppy poems etc, it was just simple, and said what it said 'Thinking of You'. This is just the same. I love the wood heart. xx

  3. What a beautiful thoughtful/sympathy card! I love the bright colors of the inks. Great job.
