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.
