My Creative Time 67th Edition Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Creative Time 67th Edition Release Blog Hop! Today is a happy day, because finally it’s release day for all of the wonderful products you’ve been seeing in the sneak peeks throughout this past week. I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest project. You should have arrived from Teri Beri’s blog, but if you’ve gotten lost anywhere along the way, you can start back at the My Creative Time blog.

My card for today features the adorable Sea You Soon stamp and die set, along with the fabulous new Scalloped Stitched Square Dies, in a sweet little nautical friendship design.

I am just smitten with the cute critters from Sea You Soon. These little guys were watercolored and die cut with the matching dies and added to an underwater scene that was pieced from the scalloped square dies. The sentiment from the set was stamped onto a circle die cut from the previously released Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. The paper is from the You & Me collection by Simple Stories.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Next stop along the hop is Erica .

And here’s more information for you about today’s release.

Autumn Wishes for You

Hello, hello! Happy Wednesday!

I’m on the countdown, my friends. Just one more day until the grand opening of my new Fall Shop! And I know you know how excited I am!

I’ve been quietly working on my shop goodies for the past couple of months, so I’m pretty much ready to go. But of course there are always lots of last minute things to do. There’s photos to edit, and a shop page to update, and a few final tags to create, like these little foxy friends.

AudreyPettit MCT AutumnWishesTags2
I am a huge fan of Emma’s adorable fall stamps and dies over at My Creative Time, and pulled out one of my favorite older sets for these. This is the sweet Fall Friends set, paired with a woodsy plaid print and a touch of natural kraft, for a warm autumn look.

Happy Fall-o-Ween with My Creative Time

Hello Sweet Friends! Happy Friday!

School is back in session. Mr. Pete is finishing up his first week of his senior year in college today. I just don’t know how time manages to fly by so quickly. But I do know one thing…. even though it’s still a hundred degrees outside, back to school means fall is officially here. In my head, anyway. So today I have a fun fall card to share, made with My Creative Time’s adorable new Gobble Gobble stamp and die set.

AudreyPettit MCT HappyFalloween
I am crazy about the sweet owl in this set, and while I was working on my tags for the hop last week, I couldn’t resist making another card with the little guy. This time, I colored the owl in a natural woodsy yellow and brown color combo to go with my patterned papers, and added a few fall leaves to match.

AudreyPettit MCT HappyFalloween2
More loose Distress ink watercolor, and more paper scraps from my stash. And a petite 3.5×5 card base, for something a bit different from the norm.

AudreyPettit MCT HappyFalloween3
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have an amazing weekend. And tell me, friends…..

Does it feel like fall in your neck of the woods yet?

Hello, Crafty Friends! Happy Wednesday!
Today I’m exploring my scrap pile again with some old favorite Simple Stories. This is the adorable Let’s Party collection.

AudreyPettit SS CelebrateCard
I made a vow to myself at the beginning of the year that I would try my hardest to actually use the cards that I make. And I’m happy to say that I’m sticking with that. But now, I can’t seem to keep up with the birthday cards! So whenever I have a moment to play, I’m trying to build up that birthday stash. Perfect excuse to break out this fun birthday themed collection.

AudreyPettit SS CelebrateCard2

I love all the bright colors in this line, and tried to pull out a happy rainbow of a color palette here. Fun stripey paper for the background, layered with a pair of journaling cards tied with twine. I added a simple die cut label and clear sticker for the sentiment, topped with that cute chipboard image. And then a few sequins to finish.

CHA 2016- Thinking of You with Simple Stories

Happy Wednesday, Friends! I’m still working through my CHA projects, and today I have one last official Simple Stories project to share, made with the adorable new Life in Color collection.

AudreyPettit LifeinColor ThinkingofYouCard
Celebrating the pretty florals in this line with this sweet thinking of you card. Just a simple pieced background with a scalloped border, and lots of my favorite stitching.

AudreyPettit LifeinColor ThinkingofYouCard2
A couple of SN@P journaling cards make an instant sentiment and focal point. Truly doesn’t get any easier than that.

AudreyPettit LifeinColor ThinkingofYouCard3
I added a few die cut ephemera bits and pieces and a chipboard flower. Then a simple ribbon tie finished my sweet and girly look.

It’s been a great year with Simple Stories! Thank you for all your sweet comments and support, and as always, thanks for stopping by!

CHA 2016- Hello with Simple Stories

Happy Monday, Friends! And congratulations to all the Denver Broncos fans out there! I have to say, it was tough to see my panthers lose after the season they had. But what a great game on the Broncos part. Well played, and well deserved! And what a class act that Peyton Manning is!

AudreyPettit LifeinColor HelloCard

I’m still working my way through CHA projects, and today I wanted to share a sweet and simple card I made for Simple Stories. This is the adorable new Life in Color collection.

AudreyPettit LifeinColor HelloCard2
I was having fun with my corner rounder, and just focusing on the adorable die cut bits. It’s not often that I use so many solids on a design, but I really do love the bold and graphic look.

AudreyPettit LifeinColor HelloCard3
Just a bit of foam adhesive for dimension. And a pretty bow tie. Very quick and easy. And completely mail-friendly, too.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you all have a wonderful day!

CHA 2016- Let’s Party with Simple Stories

Hello Friends, Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and that those of you on the East Coast are keeping warm and safe through winter storm, Jonas. We were at the bottom tail end of the snow and ice here in North Carolina. Schools are closed, and there’s still ice on the roads and power outages…. but I managed to escape it all. Because this weekend I was in Myrtle Beach with my gang of crafty girlfriends on our annual scrapbooking beach retreat. We got there just before the snow started, and left well after the worst had come through. Almost like we planned it! Now how lucky is that?

I don’t usually get too much done at crops, but I did manage to make a dent in replenishing my depleted stash of thank you and birthday cards, and even took a bite out of my Christmas cards for this year. I don’t think I’ve ever made a Christmas card in January before, nor been this on the ball. They’ll probably be the last cards I accomplish before December, but hey….. I’m already ahead of the game.

AudreyPettit LetsParty HipHipHooray
Today I have more CHA projects to share. This time, a pair of his and hers birthday cards I made for Simple Stories featuring their adorable new party collection, Let’s Party.

AudreyPettit LetsParty HipHipHooray2
Let’s Party is truly such a fun line, and as a card-maker, I was super happy to see a birthday-themed collection… cause as we all know, everybody needs birthday cards. I made a matching set for both a boy and a girl, using a similar style on both. Works great all on their own, or makes a perfect gift set to give or to keep.

AudreyPettit LetsParty HipHipHooray3
I adore the chipboard frames, so of course I used them on both cards to create a little birthday scene using lots of die cuts pieces and clear photo stickers.

AudreyPettit LetsParty SpecialDayCard
I replaced the bow and added a few enamel dots on the boy card for a more masculine feel.

AudreyPettit LetsParty SpecialDayCard2
Used some machine stitching and a bit darker color scheme, too.

AudreyPettit LetsParty SpecialDayCard3
I’ve got more details and information on these projects up on the Simple Stories blog, if you’d like to learn more. And on that note, I have a few more Simple Stories CHA projects to share, but this is my last post on the Simple Stories blog. My year term with them has come to a close, and with their new planner line and pocket pages to promote, they’re stepping away from cards for awhile.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Keep safe, all you East Coasters!
