PTI Make It Monday!

Hello all,
I'm participating in this weeks Make It Monday on Nichole Heady's blog from PTI. When I saw the Make It Monday for this week, I knew I had to play along, I just love this technique. The technique is to take a piece of scor-tape and use it as glue for glitter. I used Berry Sorbet and Stampers Select White cardstock from PTI, Beautiful Blooms II and Signature Greetings stamp sets, scor tape, Martha Stewart Onyx glitter, and Basic Black and Cameo Coral Stampin' Up Ink. I like the way it all came together, check it out!

Thanks for stopping by!

PTI Button Challenge!!

Well I had good intentions last night for many more posts, and I fell asleep at nine by accident. Whoops! I only woke up at 2 this morning so I guess I needed some sleep. Go figure! Anywho, another challenge issued by Nichole Heady's blog today! Goodness, they have some fantastic releases this month (as with every month!) But today's challenge is a button challenge, using buttons in a unique way. Now I'm going to venture a guess and say that this has been done before, but not by me! So here is today's card!

Hooray! A birthday card! And let me tell you, this may be my new favorite PTI color combo. I really enjoy it. :) Vintage cream (A new favorite of mine!), Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, Aqua Mist, and Enchanted Evening. I used my Imagine and the Straight From The Nest cartridge as well as Doodlecharms for the present. Orange Zest buttons and Rustic Cream button twine for the banner (my first banner card! And I LOVE it!). Red stickles from Ranger Ink for the fun glitter on the package, a brad from my stash (I could not tell you where it is from, so sorry!). Mega Mixed Messages and some orange Stampin' Up ink finish up the card.

I need to clean this scrap room! I've been creating like mad and the only thing that does for me is want to create more! I have a couple magazine submissions that I want to work on, and I need to do a few more birthday cards for sure. Plus, I need to take pictures of my new room! You all can be the judge on if it's "too bright" or if it's fantastic!! ;)

Catch ya later!

PTI Color Challenge Part Deux

Woweee, lots of posts today!

So my next color challenge choice was Ripe Avocado (adore this color), Ocean Tides, Vintage Cream and Dark Chocolate.

This card is really simple. Standard A2 sized card, corner rounder, RickRack die by PTI, Butterfly Dreams stamp set, mega mixed messages stamp set, a brown gel pen, and some rhinestones from K&Company finish it off. Just a card to say hello to someone special! :)

I'll be back, I'm not through yet! Need to take a break to clean the mudroom. Major painting going on next week. Anyway, I need birthday cards, so I'll surely make some of those tonight! There are four more color combos I'd like to try, lets see how many I can get done! ;)


PTI Color Challenge!!

Let's face it, sometimes you can envision a card, and when all is said and done you are completely off track. That's what happened with this card, although I still like it, I was totally going to use a butterfly when I realized I've been a little butterfly crazy as of late, so I used a dragonfly. ;)

So the color challenge combo I used was Ripe Avocado, Spring Rain, Dark Chocolate and Kraft. All PTI colors. I used a Martha Stewart border punch, and used my Imagine machine (!) and the gypsy wandering cartridge for the leaves and dragonfly. Mega mixed messages complete the card, with a get well on the left. Why do sentiments always have to be on the right? Hehe. I know, it's deep stuff. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Make It Monday! Another PTI project! :)

How fantastic, PTI (papertreyink) is doing a new thing called Make It Monday! I had a great time doing this project, (go to Nichole's blog for details here. You'll have to scroll a couple of posts.) Anyway, here is my card for Make It Monday! (On Wednesday, oh well! ;) Hehe)

Seriously, my camera does not do this justice, it is cuteee! :) So, mostly everything is PTI products. Raspberry Fizz, True Black and Stamper's Select White Cardstock. Hawaiian shores felt. Stamp sets Mega Mixed Messages and Signature Greetings, and the swirls off of Calendar Basics. Ink is from Stampin' Up! (because I haven't been able to get the PTI inks yet!) And the rhinestones are from K&Company.

And did you notice? I used PTI's calendar die for the black part on my card, I just cut it down a little and rounded the corners. The white cardstock was cut 2.5 inches X about 3.5 inches. Fun! :D

I really like this color combo! :) Speaking of color combos, there is another challenge on Nichole's blog which I'm going to participate in again, with different color combos. So look for more posts soon! I got to eat some lunch first! ;)

PTI Tag Challenge #3!

My final tag challenge is a notepad. I used one of the PTI notepads and a template that Nichole Heady had provided one time on her blog. (So sorry, I cannot find the post at the moment!! But Nichole's blog is and it is fantastic, I could (and do!) spend hours there!)
I used PTI kraft cardstock, a stamp from the PTI Butterfly Dreams stamp set and also one from mega mixed messages, and some Hawaiian Shores cardstock for the binding and the closure. I punched the binding with a Stampin' Up punch, and used a yellow button and velcro dot for the closure. So fun!!

That's it for today!! Have a great one!

PTI Tag Challenge #2

So for my next project, I really wanted to use this Thinking of You tag. The colors are so pretty, and I found a Heidi Grace chipboard frame in my stash that fits perfectly over it. I also used my Sew Easy tool and some of PTIs button twine to finish it off. And of course, I had to glitter the flower. I like how clean and simple this card is, makes me happy. :)


Papertrey Ink Tag Download Challenge!

Today I have three, count em, three! projects to share with you today. They are super quick and super simple to make, and it is all for the Papertrey Ink Tag Download Challenge. I had to make my projects quick and easy because my scrapbook room is in shambles at the moment. I will have pictures up to show off my new room once I'm a little more organized. :)

So without further ado, project number 1!

I used True Black cardstock, some scrap of vellum I had, and one of the Papertrey Ink Tags I downloaded. I really wanted to layer the tag over this flower for some reason, I tried to do other things but I kept coming back to this. I think I'll give it to my husband for valentine's day, although it's a tad bit girlie, he wont mind. ;)

Favorite Papertrey Product of this past year!

So my favorite papertrey product of the past year would have to be this thank you card I made. I made it with the intention of sending it in to magazines to see if it would get picked up. (A dream of mine!) Sadly, it was not accepted anywhere. But nevermind, I now get to share it on my blog!

For this card I believe the paper was True Black and Melon Berry from Papertrey ink perfect match collection. The stamps were from Butterfly Dreams (Thank You) and Beautiful Blooms II, both sets also from Papertrey Ink. The felt was True Black felt from PTI, and then a little stickles from Ranger Ink finished off the project for me. I still really love this card!

Have a great one,
