PTI Make It Monday - Layering Patterns Over Images

It's been awhile since I posted a card for Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge.  This week Dawn challenged everyone to layer a pattern over stamped images.  So for my card I stamped flowers and leaves using PTI's Gran's Garden stamp set.  Over that I stamped using a background stamp from Inkadinkado.  The sentiment was embossed using a stamp from  GinaK called Scripty Sayings.  I've been on a gold kick lately, so I added some gold washi tape with ribbon and also added some gold Stickles to the stamped red stars.  I didn't have a lot to choose from for background stamps and I wasn't sure how this would turn out, but I am happy with the design.

Here it a close up of my stamped layered image.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Add A Die Cut

My card today is for the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  The challenge to add a die cut.  My card uses the PTI Mix & Mat Pretty Brackets Die.  I lined the back with vellum.  The flowers were from the PTI stamp & die set called Fresh Bouquet.  The sentiment "celebrate" die cut is from the Penny Black set called Celebrations.  I layered two together to give it more dimension.

 Have a great day...

Papertrey Ink Stripe Challenge

My card today is for the Papertrey Ink Stripe Challenge for their Day 5 February release.  For my card I used striped pattern paper for my background using the PTI You've Been Framed Oval Die.  This is one of my favorite dies.  It's a quick way to make a really great card by just changing up the background.  The flowers are from the PTI Mini Blooms stamps & dies.  The sentiment die is from Penny Black.

 Looking forward to the new releases tonight.

Papertrey Ink Color Challenge

Today's card was made for the Papertrey Ink Color Challenge.  The challenge to create a project using the color recipes created by the design team.  I'm using the color recipe from Lizzie Jones.  

For my card I used the PTI Mighty Oak stamp set and cover plate.  This is one of my favorites.  Just by changing up the color of the leaves you create a whole different look!  With this color palette it gives my card a spring season look for an Easter birthday.  The sentiment is from the PTI stamp set Delightful Dahlia Additions.


Have a great day...

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday - Heat Embossed Stencil Backgrounds

My card today is for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge - Heat Embossed Stencil Backgrounds.  I used a striped stencil with gold embossing powder.  I then die cut it using a rectangle die.  I also cut out the PTI Mix & Mat Flourishes die with white card stock.  Using the same rectangle die I cut out the interior of my flourish.  I added flowers from the PTI stamp & die set called Rosie Posie 1 & 2.  I added a die cut sentiment.

Have a great day...

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Use Pattern Paper

My card today is for the Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp using pattern paper.  The stamp set I used is from Taylored Expressions called "If Balloons Could Talk".  This is a super cute set with different facial expressions and sentiments.  It also includes the dies.  The paper I used is from the 6x6 American Crafts "Everyday" pad.  I added Glossy Accents to my balloons, so the pic has a bit of a glare on the balloons.

Birthday Card Using MFT Fall Florals Stamps & Dies

I have another birthday card using the My Favorite Things Fall Florals stamps & dies.  I embossed the white panel using a stripe embossing folder.  Using pink card stock I die cut an oval using the MFT Stitched Ovals die.  I adhered my flowers and stamped my sentiment.  I used pop dots to add dimension on the oval and some of the flowers, but I didn't get to carried away since I am mailing this to my sister for her birthday later this month.

Have a great day.

Inlaid Die Cuts

Just a quick post today showing some cards I made using Memory Box dies.  I have examples of very simple designs to more intricate.  Here they are.

 This design was the most intricate.  I die cut the butterflies on white card stock and adhered it to a black piece of card stock.  Using the die cut with black card stock I adhered it in the opening on the white piece. Then I die cut a piece of pink & blue card stock and using my pik stick adhered the tiny pieces into the wings of the butterfly.  Doing it this way the card design has a smooth surface.  It's putzy, but I love the look.

I did the same thing here only the die cut was a lot simpler.

For this one I just inlaid the white die cut in the die cut opening done on the black card stock.  Very simple and you actually get two cards with the reverse color combo.
