PTI April Blog Hop

Our challenge this month is to use the colors in this piece by Megan Carter. We are challenged to use these colors as a springboard for our own ideas.  

I used the stencil from Lovely Lace in SU Smoky Slate.  I wish PTI had a medium gray in their arsenal.  I used Bitty Bouquet Stamp set and dies for my flowers and for the sentiment.  I embossed the sentiment in Smoky Slate from SU as well.  The inks were from SU and PTI for the yellow.  The heart frame came from the Sparkle and Shakers kit.  The ribbon is from StampinUp.  I added a little bit of Wink of Stella to the card front and some enamel shapes from SU as well.

Make It Monday PTI Patterns Behind Die Cut Windows

I needed to make a sympathy card so I decided to use the technique Dawn McVey showed in the Make It Monday video.

I used the Noted A2 rectangle for  my window.  I used one of the other Woodblock Prints stencils.  I used Autumn Rose and Lovely Lilac inks for my stenciling.  I used Keep It Simple Sympathy for my greeting.  I used a stamp set from Stampin Up for paisleys for my focal point.  I added some Limeade Ice to my paisleys.  The front of my card is Lilac Grace and I used the Woodblock Prints Stamp set.

PTI Make It Monday Out of the Box

Lexi Daly shared her project about stamping out of the box.  I need to make some Easter cards.  I am a very CAS style card maker and make my cards pretty simple.  The card that I made I used Inspired:  Savior stamp set and die along with the Noted Scalloped A1 die collection.  I like the smaller card when I have smaller elements.  I used a stamp set from Stampin Up for my "box."  The ink that I used was Terracotta tile and Starfruit from Stampin Up.  I used some copper foil cardstock and some sequins that I had on hand.

PTI Make It Monday Curved Sentiments

I'm trying to participate in more challenges and use my stuff that I have.  I probably have too many sets that have never seen ink.  Our challenge was to curve a straight sentiment such as here.  Here is Ashley's project and below is my take on curved sentiments

Supplies used were Lovely Lady PTI card for the base.  I used Color Pop: Butterflies.  The sentiment was from Keep It Simple:  Just Because.  I used Banner Style Die for the label.  I used SU Bashful Blue, Lost Lagoon, and Melon Mambo and PTI Enchanted Evening, Hawaiian Shores,  Lovely Lady, and Smoky Shadow inks.  I used some gold thread and some Wink of Stella to add some gold to the front.  The label is popped up with dimensionals.  I also used the technique shared by  Yana Smakula for PTI and embossed a couple of the butterflies after coloring.

March PTI Blog Hop

This is the picture that we were given for inspiration for this months's blog hop.  I wanted to use the theme of the flowers and the colors for my card.

Here is my card that I made.  I used PTI Ruby Rose Stamp set, the free December stamp set Ruby Reprise, and then the dies.  The sentiment is from that stamp set as well.  I used SU Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Bashful Blue inks as well as PTI Lovely Lady for the flowers.  I embossed the sentiment with Tempting Turquoise embossing powder.  I sponged Bashful Blue ink on the edges.  Not exactly satisfied with the card but hopefully the recipient will be pleased.

Make It Monday PTI

This is the first time that I am participating in the Make It Monday on Nichole Heady's blog for PTI.  Stephanie Gold is sharing a video on chipboard sentiments.  I used the Wonderful Words:  Birthday die and stamp and Star Prints stamp set from the Vault which was one of  my first stamp sets that I bought from PTI.  Colors are SU Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, and PTI Summer Sunrise inks.  I used Polka Dot Basics stamp set to add some texture.  Below is the inside of the card.  I used Small Sketch Stars dies inside.
