Papertrey Ink Make It Monday - Masked Heart Wreaths

Melissa has a great technique this week for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge.  Using a simple mask of really any shape you can make a really cute wreath.  I went with a heart mask as shown in the video and used stamps from the PI stamp sets Twig Wreath and the Mini Blooms.  The sentiment was was done using the stamps and die from Graceful Greetings.  I die cut the same heart shape as my mask in pink card stock and a smaller heart in white card stock that I added to mask area of the card.

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday - 2016 A La Carte

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.  I am back with a card for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge 2016 A La Carte.  For my card used the technique from Danielle Flanders Make It Monday Challenge #243 Ink Blending Over Heat Embossing.  Using white embossing powder and VersaMark ink I heat embossed using PTI's Fancy Flourishes stamp set.  Using a blending tool I added some pink ink to bring out the embossing.  The die cut frame was from the PTI Shaker & Sprinkles Kit.  The flowers are from one of my favorite stamps & die sets PTI's Forget - Me - Not.  And last the die cut sentiment was from Penny Black called Celebration Dies.  Here is my card for this week's challenge.

Art Impressions Challenge Shake A Little

Another fun card today for the Art Impressions Challenge #198 Shake a Little.  I used the AI stamp & die set called Birthday Fairy Set.  I paper pieced her dress with some scrap pattern paper, added Stickles to her wings & hat.  I die cut a second skirt and added the action wobble that comes with the set for the "Shake a Little" aspect of the card.  It's hard to see, but I also stamped some stars on the yellow background with a shimmery ink pad I purchased from Stampin Up years ago.  For the inside I used the Sizzix 3D Scallop With Gifts Drop In Dies.  There are several dies in the set that you can use to drop in, I chose the Happy Birthday.  Here is my card.

Art Impressions Challenge - Slide on By

Today's card is for the Art Impressions Challenge - Slide On By.  I don't have any of the AI stamp & die slider sets, so I improvised using a rectangle die and small hole punch to make the slider element of the card.  For the piece that pulls out I used the top part of the  AI sentiment stamp Chicken and for the chicks I used the AI stamp Chicks.  Once the slider is pulled out I used the AI stamp Fainted Chicken.  I think this stamp is just so funny.  The sentiment was the bottom portion of the sentiment stamp I used on the slider piece.  The papers were from American Crafts called Heartland Farm.  Here is my card.

Art Impressions Challenge - Prep For Christmas

I'm back with a card for the Prep For Christmas challenge at the Art Impressions Blog.  This is the first time I have inked up this stamp from AI - I just love the sentiment that goes with this gal.  I looked all over the AI store, but I couldn't find this stamp to link up to, so I'm not sure if this has been retired.  The papers were from the The Paper Studio called Cozy Little Christmas.  I also added a few snowflakes that were die cut using white glitter paper.

Art Impressions Challenge - Cards To Die For

The challenge the last couple weeks at the Art Impressions Blog is Cards to Die For.  So for my card I pulled out the AI stamp set and coordinating dies called Fairy Spinner.  I used white embroidery floss for my string to make my stamped image spin.  The papers were from Recollections Bright & Basic 6 x6 pack.  I used a circle & scalloped circle die to create the opening.  The sentiment, which also comes with the stamp set was done with two old punches from Stampin Up.

Have a great week...
