My Time Made Easy September Release and Color Throwdown #108

**UPDATED POST a/o 3:00pm, 1 Sep**

So, I'm back from the original post this morning with all the deets!  Today is the September release for My Time Made Easy as well as the Color Throwdown #108 challenge!

First off...here is the palette for the challenge Laura is hosting on the CTD:

And my card:

When I first saw the stamps that Lauren is releasing today to coordinate with her new MEGA template (Shop Around), I immediately thought of how perfect the images would be for cards!  I know, I know...they're MADE for the template, but seriously, they work beautifully on cards also!  SO easy to use because they're adorable and versatile!  Something that My Time Made Easy prides itself on...  I needed a thank you card for a friend, so I used one of the cupcake images and the "Hope your day is as sweet as you are!" sentiment.  Both are from the "On Display" stamp set.  I stamped the cupcakes in Timber Staz On, paper pieced the cupcake holders with the Nomad Darling Dots (scaled and printed at 2"x3"), colored the icing and cake with Copics...I then used clear embossing powder to give the icing a little shine (I can't find brown embossing powder anywhere around here).  I used flat backed red gems for the cherries.  Everything else is pretty self explanatory.

You've gotta check out what Tammy is doing with the images on her cards also...she's our newest team member and is whipping up cards left and right!  All in the nick of time mind you (since we got the products to her JUST before release time)...this girl works amazingly well under pressure :]  If you missed my previous sneak peeks at our paper, you can view them HERE and HERE.

I will be making a shop very soon!  I have everything printed and cut, I just need to assemble :]  I've also been inspired by both Tammy and Lauren to make a card using the window from the Home Improvement stamp set or Shoppe Window.  Their cards were soooo adorable!  I want to CASE them :O)  The rest of the team has created some very unique cards and templates as well.  You DON'T want to miss their projects!!


Two MTME design team members will be selected to give away a $50 gift certificate to the My Time Made Easy store, so be sure to comment on everyone's blogs!!  Winners will be announced on Lauren's blog on 3 September.

You'll also want to take a look at all of our new PRODUCTS and our awesome new GALLERY that Sara got up and running :]

Okay, not to outshine the Color Throwdown, these ladies whipped up some BEAUTIFUL projects today!  Check em out:

Thanks for hanging around today...while I eventually got my post typed up appropriately :O)  Hope you enjoy all of the inspiration!

It's so much fun to see how you all take the same designs but add your own personality to them. I love this newest Lauren release:-)

Stampin' Pam said...

Kristin this is adorable! I love the triple image layout - always a good one but I really like how you did the cut outs. You'll have to give me a lesson on using a resized paper cause I love the darling dots paper here - super colors - wish I had time to play CTD but I'm swamped with work and can barely get MTME projects done. Hope you have a great week.
