MIM 175: partial die cut borders

I had such fun whipping up this card for this week's Make It Monday challenge. Danielle challenged us to use a shape die and do a partial die cut on the edge to create a border. I chose to use the teapot from Tea for Two stamp set. The sentiment is from another old set Everyday Button Bits. A couple oldies but goodies! The patterned paper is from October Afternoon. The card is just a small 4 x 4".

More watercoloring

I used some Distress inks to color the background of this card. Papertrey's Wet Paint stamp set for the sentiment. Some penwork to detail a frame and all on a Raspberry Fizz card base.

Enjoy your day

The Smile You Gave Me

Circle Smile

Not much to say about this card. The circles are cut from a preprinted 12x12 scrapbook paper. I used Papertrey's Building Blocks stamp set for the sentiment.

Partial die cutting

I see lots of partial die cutting in blogland and I love the look of it. This took me a few times to get it right, but I got it. This was a card I made for my dad's retirement.

I popped up the front, die-cut sentiment onto another panel stamped with images from Papertrey's Grunge Me.

I somehow ended up with a small smudge of yellow ink, barely visible to anyone but me!, but I didn't like it so I covered it with another stamped sentiment from Paper Smooches.

MIM 173

I've been playing along with a few of the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenges, but this is the first one in a while that I've actually managed to photograph and blog before the deadline.

Stencil it

So I picked up a stencil at Michael's a month or so ago and played with it a bit. Not super crazy about this card but not totally repulsed either. It didn't go in the circular file/recycle bin! :)

I think it's the color combo and the embossing color that's throwing me. I kind of like the funky-ness but it still seems a little off. Oh well. Maybe I have a wild and crazy friend that will get this one.

What's a party without cake?

A meeting! And meetings are no fun! Here's a birthday card I made to add to my stash for all those times when you need a card right away.
