Make It Monday #55

I'm doing another Make It Monday this week. I loved Dawn's idea for making bigger frames, but I sadly do not own any frames from PTI yet. I do have the limitless layers dyes however, and Dawn's idea gave me another idea. I could absolutely make a reverse frame out of my limitless layer dies!

Here is the die I used...

And here is the card I made with this die..

I used Smokey Shadow cardstock and ink, Lemon Tart and Vintage Cream cardstock, and the new stamp set Simply You. Hope you enjoy!

Make It Monday! #54

Can you believe it's already Make It Monday #54 on Nichole Heady's blog? This week's Make It Monday is to use glittered buttons. I happened to be making this card for a friend who just had a baby and I thought the wheels on this would be adorable as glittered buttons!

I used kraft, vintage cream, aqua mist and smokey shadows cardstock. The buttons and button twine are also from PTI, and I used the stamp set Tiny Tags and coordinating dies. The baby carriage was cut from my Cricut using the Stork's Delivery cartridge and patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye. And there you have it, a fantastic little baby boy card, easily adaptable for baby girl. ;)

Papertrey Ink Challenge!

Well, I've been a little MIA. Our pups (almost a year old!) have kept me super busy. I'm also working on a new blog that I am going to design myself. So be on the lookout for that!

Anyway, here is a card for the Papertrey Ink challenge on Nichole Heady's blog. It is their 5th anniversary! Happy anniversary PTI!

The task today was to make an interactive card! I took a note out of Nichole Heady's book today, I tried to recreate a slider card, but let me tell you, those new dies coming out tomorrow would be sooo much easier! ;) I created a little butterfly to 'take flight'. I even used some felt for the backing, as that is probably one of my most favorite things to do. :P Hope you enjoy!
