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.
